A remarkable, contemporary presentation of the theory and practice of Tibetan medicine, given in a series of lectures to a group of health care professionals at California Medical Center in San Francisco in 1996.
Dr.Dhonden elucidates the holistic view of health and disease, referring to traditional Tibetan medical sources as well as his own experiences during over fifty year`s experience of practice in Tibet, India and the West, including being a former personal physician to the Dalai Lama. This lecture series was presented during the planning stages of a research project, currently being conducted at the University of California San Francisco, to test Dr.Dhonden's medical treatment for metastatic breast cancer. This book includes a Tibetan medical view of Aids and Cancer.
"I am very happy to learn about the publication of this book. Dr.Yeshe Dhonden is one of the most experienced practitioners of the Tibetan medical system." The Dalai Lama.
"An interesting collection of writings we can all learn from, which focuses on the health and healing of the human condition - unlike Western medical technology which treats the diagnosis and often depersonalizes the patient." Dr.Bernie Siegel.
