What is Tibetan medicine?
Now some may think that Tibetan medicine is just a philosophy, which has no scientific tendencies. So what is Tibetan medicine? Is it the same case as above thinking? Tibetan medicine is a science; art and philosophy that provide a holistic approach to health care.
1.
It is a “Science” because its principles are enumerated in a systematic and logical frame.  Work based on an understanding of the body and it’s relationship to the environment.
2. It is an “Art” because it was diagnostic techniques based on the creativity, insight, subtlety and compassion of the medical practitioner.
3. It is a “Philosophy” because it embraces the key Buddhist principles of altruism, karma and ethics.

Buddhist philophy states that everything in the universe is in a constant state of flux that all phenomenons are characterized by impermanence, and that the only permanent feature is impermanence itself. As Buddha said.” No matter whether perfect beings arise or not, it remains a fact, and a hard necessity of existence, that all creations are transitory. “It is this impermanence that causes each and every being to suffer at one stage or another.
Suffering is thus not accidental but spring’s from a specific cause, whether from this life or a previous life. Only through proper learning and the genuine practice of Dharma from the vicious cycle of suffering.
