PTSD

How does Tibetan Medicine deal with PTSD and how effective is it? A relative of mine may go to see a Tibetan doctor about it, so I thought I'd get some information.

There is no specific diagnosis for PTSD; but whatever associated disorders of the "humors" there are can be treated.

Relax, don’t worry about all the problems of samsara. Everything is relative. But try to be present.
