Tibetan medicine is different than western medicine. The primary modes of diagnosis in Tibetan medicine are pulse diagnosis and urine analysis. Pulse diagnosis might share some similarities with pulse diagnosis in acupuncture. Urine analysis may involve tasting the urine (by the doctor) as well as looking closely at it to observe things like bubbles, color, and cloudiness. Tibetan healing is holistic which has a number of advantages over creating distinct categories and labels for disease states.
