It is a company consisting of Tibetan hospital and clinic, focusing on Tibetan herbs picking, planting and processing. The company is Tibet’s Chamdo Limeiaosi Health Industry Development Co. Ltd founded by Phuntsog Rakyi in 2018.

Phuntsog Rakyi started to learn about Tibetan medicine at about 10 years old. In September 2002, he went to Baiyu Wuming Buddhist Institute in Garze Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in Sichuan Province to learn about traditional Tibetan culture and medical theories. Then, he studied Tibetan medicine at Chamdo Secondary Vocational and Technical School and became a Tibetan doctor thereafter.

In 2018, Phuntsog Rakyi set up the Chamdo Limeiaosi Health Industry Development Co. Ltd in the context of promoting plateau life science and was dedicated to developing traditional Tibetan medicine with today’s science and technology.

On the top of picking local wild Tibetan herbs, the company made lots of efforts in cultivating and planting new herbs. Up to now, the company has built fine herb breeding and planting bases in over 13 counties in Nyingchi and Chamdo with 48 kinds of herbs. A total of 28 kinds of herbs like Rhodiola rosea are artificially planted.

By now, the company has developed and produced over 20 kinds of Tibetan medicine independently. Some of the products are popular with patients in national OTC pharmacies.

Talking about future, Phuntsog Rakyi said his company has set up cooperative relations with Yunnan Agriculture University and would produce more effective Tibetan medicine, helping more and more patients regain health.
