Tibetan Medicine and You : A Path to Wellbeing, Better Health, and Joy Hardback
All of us want to be happy and avoid suffering. So why are many of us anxious, angry, or depressed? We suffer from pain, hypertension, inflammation, indigestion, insomnia, and addiction.
Yet, too often we make choices that undermine us rather than reverse what's wrong.
Tibetan medicine, Tibet's ancient, timely science of healing, offers effective tools for transforming suffering into health and happiness.
Tibetan medicine teaches that the purpose of life is to be happy, and that after our basic needs are met, happiness results primarily from our own thinking.
When challenges arise, we choose how to interpret them.
We can wallow in negativity and get sick - or even sicker - in mind and body. Or we can decide to create health and happiness. Making mindful, healthy choices won't solve every problem but will produce better results than poor or thoughtless decisions do.
At least, we won't make things worse! This book explains how to use the concepts of Tibetan medicine for self-care and integrative care alongside Western medical interventions.
By actively engaging in self-care, we make conscious, informed decisions to preserve and improve health and happiness.
By (Both sentences begin with By. One sentence needs rewriting.) incorporating Tibetan medicine into our Western medical care, we include methods for preventing disease and mental distress, improving overall health outcomes, and preparing for a more peaceful death.
The chapters cover the philosophical underpinnings of Tibetan medicine and nuanced explanations of health, illness, diagnosis, and treatment, focusing on diet and behavior.
Anyone can use the information in this book to reduce stress, make healthy choices, improve overall health and wellbeing, and be happier.
Using Tibetan medicine for self-care and integrative care promotes empowerment and offers more options than Western medical care alone (to be consistent).
