hi, I am a nursing student, and am doing a project on Laotians for cultural awareness. we are trying to integrate the beliefs of the cultures into modern medical practice. I have spoken to one Laotian person, and he told me that they use herbal remidies before consulting an American doctor, but he didn't know the specific ones. I have been directied to a local Buddist temple.
I intend no offense, so please school me in manners as to entering the temple, and talking to the priest (or his interpreter - he doesn't speak english. Does me being female cause any problems?
