Tonight’s theme is holistic healing. How do different forms of healing—traditional, cultural or borrowed—serve us? What challenges do they face in a Western world?
- We talk with Khanh Hoa Nguyen and the Asian American Pacific Islander Health Research Group on the research process for From Mothers to Mothers, their new cookbook of Asian recipes for postpartum mothers.
- We also talk with Elokin Orton-Cheung, founder of Shooting Star Botanicals, about the healing power of plants and her efforts to decolonize herbalism.
- And Quincy Surasmith from the podcast Asian Americana, asks questions about self-determination in health and economic sustainability. He talks to both farmers and consumers involved in an Asian American, community-supported, agricultural program called Roots CSA.
