Traditional Tibetan medicine, created by people living on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, is becoming known worldwide. This English monograph – the first of its kind ever published in China – deals with the theoretical and practical aspects of Tibetan medicine, including its history, fundamental theories, physiology, anatomy, diagnostics, clinical science, therapies, medical ethics, health care and materia medica. Included are special chapters devoted to the unique Tibetan medical painting scrolls (Sman thang), important international conferences, and representative specialists and their works. Appendices cover authors, medical texts, transliteration of the Tibetan alphabet, and a chronological table of Tibetan medicine.
