Limitations in TTM

Postby kalden yungdrung » Fri Aug 19, 2011 5:26 am

Tashi delek,

There arose some questions, namely

- In which cases is TTM limited in helping the patients?
- What are the contra indications, according TTM?

Anything requiring major surgery.

The second question is too vague.

Tashi delek,

Thanks for your reply.

I mean as a contra indication pregnent women in case of certain treatments, which would be allowed if the woman was not pregnent.
So there are / must be also contra indications in the treatment of TTM.

- How is this explained ?
- Where is it written ?
- Where are they different then in the western medicine and TCM ?

Best wishes

There are many contraindications summarizing them all would be difficult. But in short, moxa should not be be used on pitta conditions or hot diseases; blood-letting and needle should be used un vata conditions, cold treatments should not be used on kapha conditions and so forth.
