Topic: Flowers of the Internal Organs: How the sense organs and internal organs are related in Tibetan medicineTibetan medicine considers that each of the five sense organs are connected to specific internal organs. Therefore in Tibetan medical diagnostics, the sense organs are observed in order to diagnose problems with the internal organs. The Tibetan doctor ascertains how the sense organs are functioning and how they appear in order to collect more information on the state of the internal organs with which they are connected. Likewise, problems with the sense organs can also often be healed by treating the internal organ with which they are connected.

Topic: Dharma and Medicine: The special Relationship between Tibetan Medicine and BuddhismAccording to Tibetan Medicine and Buddhism, the unique cause of all suffering and illness is ignorance. Ignorance gives rise to the three poisonous afflictions: attachment, hatred, and confusion. These three poisons are interdependent with the elements responsible for the functions of the body, known as the nyepa gsum in the theory of Tibetan Medicine. When out of balance the nyepa gsum are the direct cause for physical illness. By exploring this fundamental theory in Tibetan Medicine, as well as other unique features such as consciousness in embryology and karmic conditions of disease, we can better understand Tibetan Medicine's special relationship with Buddhist philosophy.

Topic: The Essential Principle for Maintaining Health in Tibetan MedicineIt has become common knowledge that a healthy diet is the key to maintaining good health. In Tibetan Medicine it is not considered that one type of food is good for all. Instead the main emphasis is put on how to keep one's own digestion strong to keep in good health. It is considered that the primary factor which keeps good digestive function is the fire element. Therefore to maintain good digestion the most important thing is to protect the fire element with balanced diet and lifestyle specifically based on one's own condition of constitution, age, environment and seasonal factors. In the theory of Tibetan Medicine all chronic diseases are caused by indigestion, therefore this topic is of utmost importance. PART I
