Join holistic wellness and integrative nutrition expert Isa Kujaswski, MPH, RDN, to discover the more popularized Korean wellbeing concepts that are still evolving alongside centuries-old healing traditions that revolve around Korean medicinal health and food as medicine.

Explore the mind and spirit practices of sohwakhaeng (small but certain happiness), nunchi (emotional intelligence) and worabel (Korean slang for work-life blending). Learn about "hitting mung" to empty one's mind, similar to forest bathing where you immerse yourself in nature. Find the healing benefits in foods, including fermented vegetables such as kimchi for digestive wellness and the use of common herbs ginseng, gingko biloba and green tea. And take a closer look at Korean skincare, known around the world for resulting in glowing skin, from seshin, a scrubbing ritual, to jjimjilbangs, bathhouses and spas to unwind and detoxify.

Connecting nutrition, mental wellbeing and Korean healing concepts, the book shows how to find true wealth through vibrant health.
