Tibetan medicine is a traditional form of healing that basically employs natural materials (herbs, minerals, precious stones, metals and so on) for compounding medicines. It uses a holistic approach, tackling the symptoms of disease at both the physical and emotional levels. Buddhist healing is intimately linked with Buddhist philosophy. From its initial introduction in Tibet in the 7th-8th centuries, the Dalai Lamas, Tibet's spiritual and temporal rulers since the late 17th century, gave generous patronage to the study and propogation of medicine. Initially, monks were initiates into the art of healing, but later family lineages developed, till eventually it became a community service. Today, it is only practised by a handful of authorised amchis (doctors) and is in danger of losing its valuable patronage.
Exploring the ideas of an age-old art of healing, this book takes the reader to the beginnings of medical science in ancient Greece and traces its subsequent journey into the 8th-century Arab world and the birth of a new system called Unani.

There is also an informative chapter on home remedies that can be safely tried by readers, since Unani medicine prescribes drugs that originate in nature. Heavily illustrated, this book gives the reader a glimpse of an old science, the value of which the modern world seems to be just waking up to.
