Synopsis

Swiss documentarian Franz Reichle travels to India, Siberia and various other parts of the globe to collect information on gyushi, an ancient Tibetan system for treating illness. Gyushi, or "the knowledge of healing," has been used to combat chronic sickness by utilizing the healing powers of roots, herbs and other organic materials. The Dalai Lama is one of the few well-known proponents of this alternative medicine, and he praises it extensively in the film.
