Tibetan traditional medicine camp on October 8 in Mysuru

Men-Tsee-Khang, a Tibetan medical centre, will organise ‘Sowa Rigpa’, a camp of Tibetan medical science of healing on the first Sunday of every month in the city. The first camp is scheduled for October 8 at Ventronics near Mahajana High School on Kalidasa Road.

Sowa Rigpa has a history of more than 2,000 years. It is known to be effective for
most of the chronic diseases, in the last few decades, said Dr Tsundu Dolma, Bachelor of Tibetan Medicine and Surgery, who offers treatment at the camp.

A product of Men-Tse-Khang College in Himachal Pradesh, Dr Dolma is serving in a health centre at the Tibetan colony at Gurupura village, Hunsur taluk. There are three similar doctors in the Bylakuppe colony near Koppa in Periyapatna taluk.

The primary objective of the centre is to preserve and promote the unique traditional Tibetan system of medicine and the medicines used are purely natural herbal recipes that treat the problems, providing holistic health at affordable prices. The naturally produced medicines are being procured from Himachal Pradesh.

Sowa Rigpa has shown positive results in the fight against cancer. “We have good records in treating kidney stone, piles, cyst, arthritis, asthma, hypertension, knee pain, common cold, allergic, infertility, menstrual problems, anaemic, dengue and chikungunya,” says Dr Dolma.

The Department of Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy (AYUSH) has recognised Sowa Rigpa as a science of healing. Men-Tsee-Khang offers special concessions to the needy and poor people. There are eight branches in Karnataka and the institute will charge Rs 60 for first time consultation and Rs 25 for consecutive consultations. The branches are functioning in Bengaluru, Bylakuppe, Kollegal, Kalaburgi, Mundugodu, and Gurpur in Hunsur taluk.

Explaining about the history of the centre she said in 1961, under the guidance of the Dalai Lama, Men-Tsee-Khang, the Tibetan Medical and Astrology Institute, a charitable trust, was re-established in Dharamsala, Himachal Pradesh. The mission was to preserve the unique science of healing and to provide health care to all people. In these 60 years, it has earned high respects and has served a large number of people internationally, said Dr Dolma.

There are 51 clinics in cities and rural areas of India and out of its seven lakh patients, 80% are Indian population in 2016, she said.
