"Recommended. This program provides a glimpse into some of the reasons why people choose a less conventional approach to their health care. Divided into seven chapters, this program touches on herbal remedies, Chinese medicine, Qi Gong, and alternative therapies for pets, in addition to a brief overview of other naturopathic techniques. Joyce Resin is a very appealing host for the program, asking good, basic questions in a neutral manner. While it doesn't cover every type of therapy, it does touch on the basics and gives a good enough overview to get a taste of the options available for further exploration." -EMRO Review
The demand for alternative medicines and therapies is growing, as is the need for trained professionals, and the ultimate goal is to successfully integrate them into mainstream health care. This program examines the reasons behind the increased acceptance of naturopathy and introduces us to people who have benefited from them. First, we meet Gloria Umezuki, who once suffered with psoriasis, but thanks to Dr. Andy Zhou, a Chinese medicine practitioner, who prescribed the proper herbal medicine for her condition. Next, Gina Dingwell, Director of Ed. at the Tzu Chi Institute, advises us about the taking of herbs. Lastly, expert Steven Aung guides us through an exercise workshop on the ancient Chinese practice of Qi Gong. 04/10DE/CC Closed-Captioned SCA 30 min.
