According to Tibetan medicine the mind plays an important role for health and disease. The prescribed medicine is only part of a comprehensive healing process, by which the whole being can be purified and harmonised. An essential aspect of Tibetan medicine is the deep understanding of psychosomatic interrelationships.
The speakers who are designated experts in practice and research of Tibetan medicine will explain the basics of Tibetan medicine.
Dr. Herbert Schwabl, Biophysicist and Research Director of PADMA AG, Switzerland:
From Herb to Capsule; Tibetan Medicine from Tradition to the Present Time
Dr. Herbert Schwabl pursues the question, how Tibetan formulations can find their place in Europe and sensibly enrich western medicine. He is Research Director of Padma AG in Switzerland, which produces and markets Tibetan medicaments.
Herbert Schwabl was born in Vienna in 1961. He obtained a Dr. degree in technical physics in Vienna in 1994 and was employed in the fields of environmental science and complementary medicine afterwards. Dr. Schwabl is author and co-author of interdisciplinary studies and articles related to the understanding of Tibetan medicine.
Prof. Mag. Dr. Florian Überall, Biochemist, Molecular Biologist, PhD
Tibetan Mixtures of natural Substances: Ancient Knowledge put to Test by Research
What are the characteristics of Tibetan formulations? Can they be examined by scientific means and for which treatment of which diseases are they suitable? Tibetan formulations are multi-substance mixtures from five to 20 components derived mostly from plants and some minerals.
The formulations are especially suitable for application for chronic diseases where a multitude of signalling pathways and metabolic processes is disturbed. Results of the most recent research show how multi-substance mixtures derived from plants of the Tibetan medicine can influence the complex processes when atherosclerosis develops.
Florian Überall, born 1954, is Professor of medical biochemistry at the Medical University Insbruck and Director of the Centre for Gene-Analysis of the Medical University Insbruck. The scientist is founder and director of the Information Centre on Tibetan Medicine in Telfs, Austria.
