Abstract Apart from acupuncture and ginseng, most people are woefully ignorant about Eastern medicine. In fact, Chinese medicine is based on a tradition dating back as much as 2,000 years. This longstanding tradition includes herbal medicine, acupuncture, massage, exercise, and therapy through diet. Thought of as alternative medicine in Western countries, this type of treatment is common throughout East Asia, accounting for an estimated 40 percent of all Chinese health care. During the 1950s, China's government began to enlarge the Chinese medical tradition with modern scientific concepts. Filmed in southwest China, this film takes stock of the many and varied weapons in the average Chinese doctor's arsenal against illness.
