Root of Diagnosis in Tibetan Medicine (FTTM 1.3)


  • The Center SF 548 Fillmore Street San Francisco, CA, 94117 United States (map)

In this module, we will study the fundamental principles of Tibetan Medical diagnosis presented in the Root Tantra. This includes the basic approaches of inspection (of the tongue and urine), palpation (of the pulse), and dialogue with the patient, each according to the three nyepa. We will also develop a working understanding of constitutional typology based on the three nyepa, and will consider how Tibetan Medicine diagnosis compares and contrasts with diagnostic approaches used in modern medicine.
