A workshop to teach participants about the role of Pulse Reading and Urine Diagnosis in Tibetan Medicine.

The workshop will give participants a hands-on chance to learn about the role of pulse and urine analysis in Tibetan Medicine.

Being a fundamentally non-invasive system of medicine, Tibetan Medicine relies on extensive pulse taking and urine analysis to identify the causes of illness in a patient. Tibetan physicians describe the pulse and urine as a "mirror" through which they can observe the internal imbalances and bodily temperatures (hot, cold) of their patient. This workshop will provide a first-hand opportunity for those interested to learn about these subtle diagnostic tools of Tibetan Medicine. 

The workshop will be given by Dr Rigzin Sangmo of the Tibetan Medical and Astrological institute in Dharamsala. Dr Sangmo la graduated from the Tibetan Medical & Astrological Institute (TMAI) College in Dharamsala, India, in 2002. She has travelled extensively in India and internationally, conducting studies on conditions including Hepatitis B, Diabetes, Peptic Ulcers and Hypertension; and attending seminars, conferences and workshops. She teaches and runs workshops, and presented papers on behalf of the TMAI’s Research and Development Department at the 2nd International Conference on Tibetan Medicine in October 2012. She is the author of the report titled “Clinical Trial of Tibetan Medicine in the Treatment of Chronic Hepatitis B”. Dr. Sangmo has been working in the TMAI’s Research and Development Department since 2004 and currently serves as the department’s Head.

Six aspects of urinalysis will be considered in the workshop:

  1. Preliminaries

All participants should bring a sample of their own urine for analysis at the workshop. The sample should be taken early on the day of the 9. June, before participants have consumed anything.
