Summary, etc.:
Tibet's first woman physician, Dr. Lopsang Dolma, shows how medicines are made from animal, vegetable and mineral substances, and how acupuncture and moxibustion (burning the herb moxa on the skin to drive healing energy deep inside the body) is used during her daily rounds as a practicing physician. The film explores the relationship of physical health to magnetic and other forces in the environment, and shows how Tibetan medicine heals both the physical and the psychic being by treating the patient rather than the disease.
