Banyen's Description: 

From a practicing and teaching herbalist and acupuncturist called the “best-known blonde in Chinatown,” Asian Health Secrets presents simple but thorough diagnostic tools that allow you to evaluate your daily well-being in order to prevent illness, boost immune strength, and treat discomforts ranging from headaches, allergies, arthritis, injuries, insomnia, menstrual and menopausal complaints to complex chronic conditions such as poor memory, depression, and sexual dysfunction. Both a thorough introduction to Asian herbal medicine and a steady reference for the expert, this book includes many case histories, extensive material on herbal how-to, herbs as foods and medicines, diagnosis and diet (including diagnostic shorthand methods), a three-part cleansing program, an Asian approach to weight loss, pain and injury, allergies, herbs and the mind, and much more. She refers to many remedies and products well-known and available in North America by name. She includes valuable information on the availability of different herbs, and how to use them safely, along with easy recipes for the home pharmacist. The resources provide phone numbers and addresses for recommended herbal practitioners, distributors, and herb sources in the U.S. A beautiful, accessible book design too—all in green ink with drawings and diagrams.

Hadady acknowledges among her teachers and mentors the Dalai Lama, Dr. Yeshe Dhonden, Sogyal Rinpoche, Yves Requena, Vasant Lad, Ted Kaptchuck and Mark Seem, all pioneers and practitioners of the traditional healing arts of Asia.
