Journey to the West traces Chinese Medicine’s journey to the UK and explores the challenges of establishing legitimacy and developing recognition when the dominant culture is against you. This documentary introduces Chinese Medicine’s understanding of health and illness as a platform from which to explore a catch 22 at the heart of the profession’s struggle for acceptance; status as part of UK healthcare can only be gained through evidence-based medicine, but those methods of research are designed to serve Western constructs of medicine and science, not a medical system from a different world view.
