The Tibetan Medical system is one of the world’s oldest known Medical traditions dating back to such ancient treatments as applying barley residue from Chang (Tibetan beer) to reduce swelling and using melted butter to stem bleeding, applying apricot kernel oil to smoothe the skin, use of Melandrium glandulorium as body perfume, a paste of Trona (washing soda) and Ulmus punila Lin for washing purposes, administration of the mixture of honey, mineral exudate & Acacia catechu to prevent the damage of skin from harsh and cold wind. Use of Sus Scrofa domestica Brisson fat to treat skin cracks, a paste of Capra hircus Linnaeus fat and Arnebia sp. to treat black spots on the face, Butter and Sesamum oil to restore and retain the glorifying effect of the skin. Even animals like Cervus albirostris Przewalski, seek the herbs called Soroseris hookeriana to revive their wound. Likewise avain like Alanda gulgula, applies Coriandrum sativum to bind the crack of an egg’s shell. These similar practices and experiences laid the foundation of the healing science of Tibetan Medicine, which in the course of its progress was enriched and supplemented by many medical practices from other ethnic groups and neighbouring countries, resulting in a culture in possession of a unique medical system.
SORIG, the trademark used for the Tibetan Herbal products produced by Tibetan Medical & Astro. , literally translates as “The Science of Healing”. Human beings are one of the most important beings amongst the six realms of existence. It is said that the human body is formed by the three principal energies and five cosmo-physical elements. The body is said to be in the state of health or free from psychophysiological disorders when the proper alignment of the three principal energies are maintained or in the Dynamic Equilibrium State. Disequilibrium among these three principal energies generated by unwholesome diet, improper lifestyle, seasonal variation as well as the wrath of evil spirits, which influence and disturb the homeostasis of the three energies. The Science of healing therefore involves proper aligning of three principal energies in a dynamic equilibrium state and prolongs life span by reviving weakened body and dispelling the causes that give rise to diseases, supplemented by following proper regimens of diet, lifestyle, medication, rite to rid off the wrath of evil spirits.
The Science of Healing is one of the most important amongst the five major higher sciences and is one of the World’s oldest known medical traditions dating back to 4th Century AD. It has a historical background of more than two thousand years old. It flourished in the land of snow, which is popularly known today as the Roof of the World-Tibet.
