Mongolian herbs and their effectiveness

TMM – Traditional Mongolian Medicine

Traditional Mongolian medicine developed and improved based on the culture and beliefs of the ancient Mongols . Once criticized by Western therapy as unscientific, today it is considered one of the most effective forms of treatment and is increasingly used in conjunction with conventional methods.

However, Mongolian medicine to cure it only uses small amounts of the drug . Healing treatments are aimed at restoring the body’s balance so that it can return to harmony with nature and spirit.

The branch that largely fills the system of Mongolian medicine is herbal medicine.

And while herbal treatments are much more often attributed to alternative medical approaches, in fact their use in treatment is a fundamental aspect of global healthcare.

Herbs and medicines from Mongolia – what is worth knowing?

Traditional Mongolian drugs have gained popularity, becoming an alternative to modern Western medicine, which unfortunately is invasive and dependent on chemical substances in almost every case.

About a third of the formulas for the production of medicinal products used in Mongolian medicine comes from native ingredients that are obtained in areas of Tibet . The rest of the plants are imported from China and Japan.

Manufacturing herbal formulas in Mongolia today is much easier and largely includes tinctures, powders, and tablets made from many herbs. The pills have the advantage that they can be prepared in advance in a medical facility where all the ingredients are available.

The production of herbal medicines in Mongolia is now dealt with by more and more modern institutions that want to meet the expectations of the Western medical trend.

How are Mongolian herbs and mixtures prepared?

Despite this, traditional herbal medicine in pill form is still time consuming to prepare. Lobsang Dolma Khangkar, PhD in Tibetan medicine, professor at one of the universities in Mongolia, explains that:

– each herb must stay before it can be combined with others carefully processed , mixed, and finally properly preserved to maintain its healing properties. For this, nothing is more appropriate than human knowledge and experience. Mechanization of the drug processing process in this regard, although faster and more efficient quantitatively, would not be fully advisable.

If, for example, we use cardamom, we only use its middle because the top is medicinally worthless. There is no device that can do this, so the manufacturing process has to be done manually.

After preparing each ingredient in this way, we will mix three, ten, or even twenty-five ingredients together to make one tablet. If it is not done correctly, any of the ingredients will not retain its properties when mixed with the rest.

Grinding and mixing all the ingredients takes a long time, and they have to lie for a day before they can be turned into tablets, but this time mechanically.

After the production of tablets, contrary to appearances, they are not ready yet. When they come out of the machine, put them in an oblong cotton sack, both ends of which are held by two people.

The next day is spent moving the fabric in such a way that the tablets move from one side to the other. It is the latter procedure that is responsible for that it is so hard to obtain a truly valuable Mongolian drug.

Its purpose is to completely remove the air from the tablets, the presence of which could make the drugs susceptible to bacteria and spoil them as a result. (Khangkar LD, Lectures on Tibetan Medicine, Dharamsala Library and Archives).

A wide selection of herbs and herbal mixtures for various diseases

As of today, Mongolia has 97 unique patterns that are formally recognized for the sourcing of herbal medicine recipes, 25 of which are covered by medical insurance membership.

Many formulations that are still in use were created centuries ago, however rules of combining herbs (especially those with a history) are not always clearly defined in the Mongolian medicine system.

They mostly resist on a complex analysis of medicinal properties which fall into three main categories:

  1. Category 6 flavors (sweet, salty, sour, bitter, acrid, pungent)
  2. Category 8 properties (heavy, smooth, cold, soft, light, rough, biting, sharp)
  3. Category 17 effects (cold, hot, cool, warm, rarity, damp, rough, light, heavy, steady, mobility, sharp, blurry, gentle, dry, soft)

In general, herbal preparations from Mongolia are the most common contain the element of warmth, spiciness and aromaticity . This choice is greatly influenced by the country’s climate – at high altitudes in Tibet it is usually cold and windy, hence the task of herbs is to compensate for these conditions.

For example, herbs with a pungent taste and characteristic smell are supposed to stimulate the functions of the digestive system, which often turns out to be the key to recovery and health.

It should come as no surprise that among the commonly used traditional medicinal herbs, in Mongolia the most common use is those that use traditional Indian medicine – Ayurveda.

Some of these herbs are very well known to us. These include, among others: paprika, cardamom, cloves, ginger and other spicy spices that are added to ingredients of local origin in medicines, such as, for example, musk.

Preparations obtained from the fruits of the tonsil are used in the treatment of, among others, such ailments as: diseases of the immune system, psoriasis, atherosclerosis, peptic ulcer disease, diseases of the digestive system, parasitic diseases, rheumatism or diabetes.

Almond has gained its popularity among others because it is believed to have all the flavors.

Where do the specialists learn about the properties and effects of Mongolian herbs?

Knowledge and experience related to herbal treatment are today passed on thanks to thousands of Mongolian doctors practicing natural medicine around the world . Over the past decades, they have been thoroughly trained in facilities in Tibet, Qinghai, Gansu and Sichuan.

Ten cities in China were founded medical units (clinical and university), including one large in Lhasa and an even larger one in Beijing, educating specialists in Mongolian herbal medicine.

Also, there are as many as 57 hospitals of Tibetan medicine and 30 factories producing medicines based on patterns from Mongolia. The refugee community in Dharamsala has a medical school (taught by the aforementioned Professor Khangkar) and has several small herbal manufactories in India and Nepal.

Mongolian herbal medicine, like other ancient medical systems, is based on very complex rules of dealing with health and disease. Not all plants where herbs are produced base their activities on the same patterns and recipes, much more often choosing a specific nature of their production, selecting only a few recipes and basing their specificities on them.

There is, however several blends and separate herbs, which are used in a general way making them accessible to the population of the world. Such herbs of Mongolian origin include, for example, sea buckthorn.

Depending on the pattern and medicine, sea buckthorn is used in the production of preparations for such disorders as: stomach and liver ailments, lymphatic system diseases, skin diseases, menstrual cycle disorders, digestive disorders, chronic pneumonia or colds.

The herbs used in Mongolian medicine are a whole series of mixtures and separate preparations for various diseases. It can be concluded that so far the Western world has managed to get acquainted with only a small group of them, not to mention their specific properties.

The problem is that we still don’t have enough doctors who helped support the demand. They are simply not properly educated in the field of Eastern herbs.

Therefore, Mongolian medicine and herbalism are largely promoted by China and by Tibetan refugee doctors. Important Mongolian medical texts are translated into other languages (mainly Chinese and English) and studied by scientists and archaeologists from the West.

Although we cannot say at this time that we have learned all the healing properties of herbs from Mongolia or other Asian countries, it is very likely that in the near future we will be able to fully benefit from what the eastern herbal medicine system offers us.

It is also possible that known herbs will be able to extract new compounds that may turn out to be groundbreaking, even in the treatment of neoplastic diseases.

Mongolian herbs, hitherto unknown, open up a chance for cure

Thanks to Mongolian herbs, many people have experienced relief from their ailments, and today being healthy, they recommend herbalism, especially due to the naturalness and effectiveness of its use. ( Read patient reviews – click ).

When going to an experienced specialist , we will certainly get advice on the specifics recommended for our diseases, and before starting the therapy, we will find out if there are any contraindications to their use.

According to the philosophy of traditional Eastern medicine, the patient is the most important. The doctor, after a detailed examination of the ailment, will assess which method to use, so that its effects are as beneficial as possible and that the patient can finally enjoy health for the rest of his life.

What proves the high effectiveness of herbal medicine is not only the centuries-old tradition of its use, but the still practiced technique of producing herbs and medicines based on them, as well as the knowledge and experience of real experts in this field. Over the past dozen or so years, we have had the opportunity to see how the Western, fragmented medical system becomes more and more dysfunctional.

Weak cooperation between specialists and overt ignoring, and more often negating traditional methods of treatment, resulted in wasting a huge amount of money and… human resources.

Mongolian herbal medicine and the herbal medicine of the East gives us enormous potential, which we must not waste this time.
