I have been fascinated by natural healing for quite a few years now, hence creating my Possible Mind blog. So whilst in Beijing I searched for natural healers. I found the Beijing Tibetan Hospital. With a bit research the location and nearest metro stop was found.
Today I made the trip and met with a Tibetan Doctor who examined me by holding three fingers along each wrist in turn. He looked into my eyes and studied my face but other than that it seemed like he did not do much. However diagnosis was scarily accurate. There are two slight issues I have had for a long while, nothing serious, just bug bears and something I never spoke to anyone about, but am working on improving. He nailed them both by concluding that I had a weak stomach as well as a weak kidney. He suggested that I take a special mix of herbal medicine for the stomach and another for the Kidney. The translator explained that for a months supply it would cost £100. I decided against this for two reasons; one I could not continue the treatment and two I did not have £100 on me.
I would love to have asked more questions, however i don’t think the communication level would have been enough for us understand each other.
I love the concept of seeing a doctor when you feel healthy and seeing how you can improve yourself. This, to me at least, makes much more sense than seeing a doctor when you feel poorly and asking them to fix you. I think of the quote “closing the stable door after the horse has bolted”.
I will most definitely follow this up with a visit to a Tibetan Doctor in the UK when I get back.
