TTM for Westerners?

Post by Thomas Amundsen » Fri Jun 01, 2012 6:48 am

Is TTM effective for Westerners? For example, I have heard that Chogyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche was told to go to Western doctors because he had been living in the West for so long. Is this only because he had a serious health condition, or is TTM not really effective for Westerners due to climate and diet differences?

I tried it and it worked very well for me for issues that western medicine was completely unable to touch (and actually badly damaged me trying).

For anyone considering it, it's worth trying.

Topic moved from the Tibetan Medicine forum. The Tibetan Medicine forum has specific guidelines. This topic has already generated responses from members so it is best suited in the Alternatvie Health general forum where there are no specific guidelines.
