You probably meant Dharmsala in Himachal Pradesh.

In Bangalore, there is a Tibetian Medical centre in Mahalakshmi - Layout near Anjaneya temple (Hanuman mandir). Its pretty famous and you got to wait for couple of hours in queue to see the doctors.

The address is :


Address: 295, 11th Cross, 5th Main, Mahalakshmi Layout, Bangalore-560086
Landmark: Near Anjaneya Temple
Phone: (080) 23496190 , (080) 23598459

I hope this nos has not changed.

There is also one in Kushalnagar in Coorg district in Karnataka, but not sure of the address.

Cheers!

Manzey!
Thanks for the information.
Ues! I meant Dharmshala only. That was a typing mistake.
Thanks once again.

I used to visit a Tibetan doctor in London, but he only visited occasionally, being based, initially in Tibet, and later in New Zeeland. I'd say the result was moderately successful. If he had been resident, then I think I would have visited regularly over a year or so.

By the way: in my experience of him, they also need a urine sample for analysis, as well as doing pulse sensing --- so take your first-thing-in-the-morning bottle with you!

The hand-made herbal tablets look just like rabbit droppings: I used to joke that they must make them by feeding specific herbs to a rabbit, and collecting what came out the other end .

Another irrelevant piece of information: I really liked the flavour of all the medicines I was given --- but then I have a taste for bitter, herb flavours, so your mileage may well vary.

I seem to remember (this might be more relevant) that there is more than strain of Tibetan medicine. Can someone who knows Tibetan culture confirm/deny/enlarge on this?



EDIT: Oh! Google is amazing: here's the guy I used to see! And I couldn't even remember his name!

Nick!
That is quite interesting.
You are right about the medicine tablets they give.
They smell healthy too.
I had been to Dr. Dolkar's place in Delhi.
And some friends have given amazing results being treated by her.
I went to her for treatment of for my wife.

Lat night I watched 'The Blue Buddha - Lost Secrets of Tibetan Medicine '~ Nature of Things ~ CBC. Fascinating! It's available online too:
