This is the last of the films I will be showing in this series, which has been looking at the ethnic minorities arts in China, and how they are developing in the modern world. There are more films in the series, and I have watched and enjoyed a number of them, but they are not quite suitable for inclusion here.
This week’s episode looks at Tibetan Medicine, and it practice in modern day China, and how attempts are being made to put it on a scientific footing, and offer more choice to people who require medical attention.
The film looks at a monk in Tibet, a Chinese Han practitioner in Beijing, and a number of others to get an idea about the history of the medicine, what it specialises in, and how it can be usefully employed in the present times.
All of this is very useful I think, and it is worth taking into consideration that as the medical practice grew up in special conditions, where very high altitudes have affected the population in certain ways, it could have benefits dealing with respiratory and heart diseases owing to its exposure to the high occurrence of these diseases amongst the population.
