Ann yeong ha se yo from Korea (Hello)
I’ve recently returned from Korea where I was speaking at the 10th International Congress on Complementary Medicine Research. I visited Seoul and Jeju Island and thoroughly enjoyed my visit. Korea is a very modern country and the airport in Seoul is one of the most efficient and traveler-friendly airports I have been to. People are kind and I loved shopping for clothes that were made in Korea, since the sleeves and hems were never too long. The styles were lovely.
Kimchi in Seoul is delicious, and not to mention a wonderful source of probiotics- the good bacteria that helps replenish the healthy bacteria in our bowel.
The Korean culture is deeply health-conscious – kimchi, for example, is served at every meal. The ginger and garlic in kimchi are also powerful anti-inflammatory superfoods. If you’re planning your next barbecue, pick up some kimchi instead of ketchup for a spicy and healthy kick. The vegetables and fruit in the outdoor markets were abundant, fresh and colorful.
As they say in Korea, gam sa ham ni dah! (Thank you)
