Short history of Tibetan Medicine
Tibetan Medicine is one of the oldest medical systems practiced in Asia, along with the Indian Ayurveda and Chinese medicines. All of them have several thousands of years of history and practical experiences. In the 7th century AD, Indian Buddhism was flourishing in northwestern countries, and Persian empires were enjoying prosperity. The Chinese Tang Empire, inspired by the Indian Mahayanic Buddhism and Trans-arabian wealth, developed the Meridian like Silk Road to the West.
