Ethnomedicine in the Web
If you are interested in ethnomedicine beyond the articles on this website, you might find the links in the following paragraphs useful. They are divided according to the three Asian traditions we are particularly interested in: India and Ayurveda, Traditional Tibetan Medicine (TTM) and the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
We do our best to keep this website aligned with high quality standards and in best consideration of valid laws. As far as possible, we check the content of the websites linked from Ethnomedico.com. However, ethnomedicine as a topic seems to attract a lot of illicit activities in the web and at times it can be difficult to evaluate information published online. In case we link to websites with unlawful content, we would be happy if you could notify us of this by e-mail. We would like to emphasise that we are not responsible or liable for the contents of other websites.
