Tibetan medicine holistically restores and maintains balance of the body's various systems through a variety of treatments, including diet, behavior modification, and the use of medicine and accessory therapy. Tibetan medicine is delicately responsive to patients' complete symptom patterns—no complaint being disregarded. Its wide variety of curative techniques are clearly explained. Dr. Donden's book was seen on NBC's Dateline during a feature on Tibetan medicine and breast cancer.
“"I think this book is the best work on Tibetan medicine ever to appear in English." —Dr. Barry Clark "Health through Balance represents Dr. Donden's masterful distillation of the thousand-year-old Tibetan medical tradition." —East-West Journal "An exciting and absorbing description—must reading." —John Tigue, Explorations”
