Healthy Lifestyle


Hernia, which is known in Tibetan as “liglug” or “gyulug” (bulged-out testicle or bulged-out intestine, respectively) occurs to many people. It is also one of health problems that are not often talked about in the Tibetan society. However, Dr. Ragdo Lobsang Tenzin says the problem has been treated through the traditional medicine for centuries. Nevertheless, the traditional treatment has never been as effective as the modern treatment for all types of hernias. Thanks to the development and progress of science, these days a small and an easy operation can solve the problem. According to e-medicine health website 75 percent of all types of hernias occur to men, although women also get it.
