The last semester was marked by a special event – guided by an experienced pharmacologist the students prepared a unique Tibetan medicine called Basam Menmar.

Dr. Rigdzin Dorje, one of the best pharmacologists from Amdo, Tibet, came to Russia especially for this occasion. Together with Dr. Phuntsog they led a practical course dedicated to a staged process of preparation of this medicine over four days. The doctors are very satisfied with the result – Basam Menmar of a very high quality!

In Tibet doctors who know the recipe prepare this medicine every winter. They say this composition is incredibly useful in wintertime for the recovery of body strength and increasing sexual vigor. It’s also very good for old and thin people. It is nutritious and has warming quality. It restores Dang (subtle substance) and, being Chudlen, it prolongs life and youth. There is a reason why Dr. Phuntsog chose this composition. It is very good for the Russian cold climate, which is similar to the Tibetan, and considers health problems that are particular to people here. As the doctor says, based on her experience of working with patients in Russia, many of them have different disorders of a cold nature, problems with kidneys, digestion and reproductive system. In winter all these problems intensify. For this reason Basam Menmar is usually prepared and taken in winter.

The composition of the pills is based on melted butter, honey and molasses made from specially prepared roots and fruit. It’s one of the most complicated and integrated compositions of Tibetan Medicine. This was an important and joyful moment for the Tibetan Medicine school in Russia. For the first time we made medicine with our hands, which is also quite difficult to prepare and is extremely useful.

In addition we would like to say that by now many people have already experienced the positive effects of taking this medicine.
