Diet & Lifestyle

TTM 1.3



Diet and lifestyle are the foundations of health.  Learn how Tibetan medicine understands the qualities of all types of food products, how to use food to support your health and give dietary recommendations for various disorders.

Lifestyle includes everything we do, from our daily cycle of 24 hours, how to live in balance with the seasons, ancient Tibetan guidelines on leadership and social harmony, and principles of spiritual behavior – how to live in harmony with the cosmos.
