Mom and daughter Rose Cheung and Genevieve Wong join The Doctors to share about their “Healing Herbal Soups” cookbook that they wrote together during the pandemic to share with others soups that help boost your immune system. They share their recipe for Kudzu root, bean and pork soup. Plus, they share the 5 Chinese herbs that everyone should have in their pantry.
Dr. Syd Miller, Ph.D., C. Psych adds, “From a mental health perspective the most important thing you should never do after 60, is to think of your age at all! Many people have argued that with increasing longevity, 60 is the new 40. From a positive aging perspective there are many more healthy productive years ahead of a person at the age of 60.”
Here’s an interesting Mom’s Day gift: an immunity boosting cookbook based on ancient Chinese recipes handed down mothers and daughters through the generations, dating back to the BC’s. HEALINGHERBAL SOUPS Boost Your Immunity and Weather the Seasons with Traditional Chinese Recipes is a complete guide to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and the first book of its kind ever to be written in English. The unique book was written by mother-daughter, Chinese-American duo Rose Cheung (mother, entrepreneur and sponsor of a patented herbal formula used to treat diabetes in Asia) and Genevieve Wong (four-time Emmy-nominated television writer and former cooking producer.) Genevieve, who suffered for two decades from conditions like eczema, allergies, and asthma, and by default, began to learn about the healing powers of Chinese herbal soups that help cure anything from flu to canker sores to stress and much more.
You don’t have to agree on everything in order to enjoy a satisfying relationship. However, it’s important to align on big issues or at least have a plan to work around major differences.
“Ask whether you share the same core values and beliefs regarding marriage, children, and spirituality,” says Syd Miller, PsyD. “These issues may not be relevant now, but they will be in the future. If you do not share the same values this is probably not the long-term relationship for you.”
