"This is hosted & written by Letha Hadady, D.Ac. (Doctor of Chinese Medicine), showing you a day long trip with her through NYC's Chinatown & her kitchen & giving you an introduction to using Chinese Medicine to cure your health ailments.
She starts with telling you how different foods have different properties like garlic, ginger, onions are warming while fruits, cucumbers, green foods are cooling. Most of us realize that subconsciously when our bodies feel cooler or warmer after eating those things. She goes more into that & into also bitter, sour, sweet, salty.
She also goes into the different teas & what they help with: white, green, red & black. She goes into herbs found in many Asian markets or health food stores. She points out the names of the teas, herbs & even certain powered/pill forms for complaints such as nervous headaches, digestion problems, heart & cholesterol. She recommends looking at your tongue to know what's going on with your organs which is a great tool for self diagnosis along with other symptoms.
Her ease of knowledge of herbs & how they help specific ailments, her accent when saying the herbs Asian names flawless, and her modestly to allow the store owners to talk & tell of herbs they recommend impressive.
Last is a single Qi Gong exercise that starts with an exhale as you swing the arms down & behind you w/bent knees & then inhale as pull up over your head, holding the breath, pull the energy down to the chest, exhale as you swing the arms down & up & down circularly like a volcano. She did this very well with great intention, I enjoyed it & wished there was more.

*I am a licensed massage therapist who's studies included acupressure & introductions to Chinese Diagnosis/Medicine*"

"This entertaining informative DVD is like a trip to New York's Chinatown with a gorgeous blonde guide. What could be better? She really knows her herbs and by the end of the trip -- so do you. You visit herb shops, see exotic street foods and a restaurant/temple.

When I visited NYC I looked for the places in the DVD and found the huge store on Canal street Kam Man a wonderful discovery. The tiny temple restaurant is no longer there. So I am happy to have it on film. A beautiful voyage through an enchanting ancient culture that lives today.
Enjoy this perfect companion to the book - Asian Health Secr
