About the Author

Dr. Tamdin Sither Bradley graduated from the Tibetan Medical and Astrological Institute in Dharamsala, India, and has studied under the late senior personal physician of the Dalai Lama. She was the first Tibetan doctor resident in the UK, and still lives in London, where she operates clinics in Woodford and St John's Wood. She regularly visits Wiltshire, Belgium and Sweden for consultations.


"This authoritative overview of the principles of traditional Tibetan medicine is written by a fully qualified physician within that system. Tamdin Bradley has masterfully synopsised and translated the core 12th century text of this tradition, the Four Medical Tantra (rGyud-bzhi), into an easily understandable, accessible and relevant format. As she says herself 'The uniqueness of Tibetan medicine is that it is based on Buddhist philosophical principles, astrology and the close relationship between the mind and body.' She thereby opens this unique system to western academics, researchers and the ordinary person." -- Dr Brion Sweeney, Consultant Psychiatrist, Tara Rokpa Psychotherapist, Health Service Executive and former Clinical Director of Addiction Services, Greater North Dublin
