Tibetan and Western Integrative Medicine Symposium, Oct 5 - 6, 2018, Stanford University, USA
Stanford University School of Medicine invites the world’s most dedicated clinicians, healthcare professionals, physicians, researchers and educators in Tibetan and Western medicine to present their knowledge and ground breaking research in Tibetan Medicine, clinical science and integrative medicine - all with the goal of understanding the concepts of these diverse medical systems in order to reduce suffering.
In 2018, the focus is “developing personalized care approaches”. Tibetan Medicine is an integrative and holistic system based on the 5 elements which are the building blocks of the mind/body dynamic. These elements hold our body in a state of equilibrium. According to Tibetan Medicine that balance is maintained in dependence on your unique genetically born body type. The care provided by Tibetan Medicine is not a standardized approach. Rather, it is an approach based on each individual’s unique constitution with the goal of providing a distinct and personalized mode of treatment to maintain balance.
