Issuing from an original synthesis including and particularizing certain aspects of the Buddhist doctrines, Tibetan medicine has spread in similar cultural contexts, as is the case in Ladakh, north-western Indian Himalayas. This medicine is independent of religion, but borrows from it elements to serve its medical and social, collective and individual interests. The medicine is never an isolatable speculation, it is the medicine of a socio-historical, political and cultural context. The “Ladakhiness” of Tibetan medicine is thus to be observed on many levels, and particularly in the expression of the religion by is practitioners.
