Doctor of Tibetan Medicine (Men-Tsee-Khang Institute of His Holiness the Dalai Lama)
Dr Tamdin graduated from the Tibetan Medical and Astrological Institute in Dharamsala, India, and has studied under the personal physician of the Dalai Lama.
She is the first Tibetan doctor resident in the UK. She has been practising Tibetan Medicine at the Kailash Centre in St Johns Wood, London NW8 and at her own clinic since 1997. She also travels regularly to practise in various European cities.
Her book ‘Principles of Tibetan Medicine’ includes: theory and practice of Tibetan medicine, historical background, diagnosis, treatments and therapies and tips for healthy diet and lifestyle.
As people increasingly seek for alternatives to modern medicine, interest is growing in the ancient system of Tibetan medicine, which has been practised over 2,500 years. Known as ‘gSo-ba-Rig-pa’ (the science of healing), it is based on Buddhist philosophical principles, astrology and the close relationship between body and spirit.
