Tibetan Medicine: A Buddhist Approach to Healing

Synopsis
Tibet’s first woman physician, the late Ama 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 enegy deep inside the body) are used. Explores the relationship of physical health to magnetic and other forces in the environment, and shows how Tibetan medicine aims to heal both the physical and psychic being by treating the patient rather than the disease.
