Dr. Yeshi Donden was born in 1929 and received the traditional Tibetan medical training in Lhasa, Tibet. From 1960, he served for over two decades as the personal physician to H.H. the Dalai Lama in Dharamsala, India where he also re-established the Tibetan Medical Center.

This book presents a series of lectures given by Dr Donden at the University of Virginia. He explains the basic system of Tibetan medicine and how it has been practiced and enhanced over 1000 years by Tibetan doctors. He also describes how Tibetan medicine works holistically with the person. Health and illness are considered in terms of the balance between three humors of the body; diagnosis and treatment involve not only assessing patterns of symptoms and prescibing medicines, but also taking account of thought patterns, personality, season, age, climatic condition, diet, behavior, and physical surroundings.

An excellent, informative and clearly written book that complements the book by Terry Clifford which focuses more particularly on the treatment of psychiatric problems.

paperback; 252 pages.
