FTTM 1.3: Root of Diagnosis in TTM

In-person or Online

In this module, we will study the fundamental principles of TTM 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 TTM diagnosis compares and contrasts with diagnostic approaches used in modern medicine.

This module establishes the theoretical basis for the practical diagnosis techniques taught in FTTM 2.1–2.2.
