Tibetan Medicine

With a history of more than 2,000 years, Tibetan Medicine had already developed into a branch of the medical filed. According to the records, Tibetan had realized the functions of the herbs, animals and minerals on the people’s health since that time. Tibetan medicine dates back to about the 7th century AD at which time the Tibetan ruler, King Songtsen Gampo summoned his court physicians from China, India, and Iran to develop this medicinal system.

During this time, one of the famous Tibetan kings, Songsten Gampo, hosted what is now recognized as the First International Conference on Tibetan Medicine in Samye, the original capital of Tibet. He invited many doctors, scholars, and researchers from neighboring countries including Afghanistan, China, Greece, India, Nepal and Persia to exchange valuable knowledge. Since that time, TM also has been considered the essence of medicine because wisdom and unique features of other healing traditions such as Ayurveda, traditional Chinese medicine, and Greek medicine, contributed to TM.
