Dr. Jampa Yonten on Tibetan Medicine

Ever have one of those times when you visited a doctor for a routine check-up or spent time in the hospital with a sick relative and your doctor was curt, preoccupied or, even worse, condescending? Or, have you ever shared with your physician the fact that you also seek alternative or non-conventional healthcare, and he or she scorns your disclosure? I’ll bet those experiences didn’t improve your faith in the calibre of today’s patient-physician relationships. If your doctor is lacking in the bedside-manner department, you just might want to send him the way of Dr. Jampa Yonten, Tibetan medicine healer, for a lesson in compassionate health care.
