Our patients who have had intractable diseases treated by modern medicine have experienced the notable beneficial effects of Korean traditional medicine

It is widely known that Korean traditional medicine can provide an effective treatment for paralysis. It is a mistake to expect (paralysis to be treated by) modern medicine to treat paralysis. Only a few stroke patients require surgery.
It is a wise decision to treat strokes with Korean traditional medical first-aid and the aftermath of a stroke should (similarly) be treated similarly with Korean traditional medicine. The more(further) the treatment of paralysis is delayed the less effective the treatment gets(becomes). Nasaret International Hospital has 37-years of extensive experience in treating strokes. Moreover, we maximize our treatments’ effectiveness through our modern · Korean traditional cooperative medical system. This is effective for a variety of other intractable diseases, as well as strokes.
In modern medicine, intractable diseases are mostly diseases such as tissue cell senescence, tissue cell damage, immune deficiency, loss of function, blood circulation disorders, insufficient energy, etc. Korean traditional medicine can effectively counter these by offering: anti-aging, cell regeneration, immune enhancement, the restoration of function, blood circulation and the strengthening of energy.
|Acupuncture treatment||Traditionally, acupuncture treatment is the safest and the most effective treatment for facial paralysis. The treatment enhances disorders in Qi-blood circulation caused by the invasion of cold into the facial meridian.|
|Moxibustion treatment||This treatment adds warmth to the meridian, smoothens Qi-blood circulation and increases natural healing in the body.|
|Korean Traditional Herbal Medicine Prescription||This treatment uses Korean traditional medicine by identifying the patient’s constitution and the causes of the disease. Generally(,) disorders in the Qi circulation cause issues therefore,(and so) we prescribe medicines that enhance Qi circulation. We carefully select the medicines for optimum effect, for instance; in the acute-period, we prescribe to prevent an advance of the disease, whilst in the earlier stages and in the chronic period, we use personalized prescriptions against lesions and to boost recovery.|

Most internal medical patients suffer from diseases such as lack of function, lack of immunity, tissue cell destruction, aging, etc. because modern medicine does have treatments to deal with these diseases. However, Korean traditional medical prescriptions are often effective in aiding function recovery, enhancing immunity, regenerating tissue cells and anti- aging.

Patients should not take any modern medicines that are made with artificial chemicals during their pregnancy. Taking modern medicines before childbirth can be fatal to the fetus or result in the child being born disabled. Taking modern medicine after childbirth can reduce the breast milk supply and so encourage a switch to using formula milk.
Therefore, Korean traditional herbal medicine that is not harmful to the body is prescribed during pregnancy or after childbirth to mutually benefit both the mother and the child. Whatever the disease (is) during pregnancy or after childbirth, it can be treated with Korean traditional herbal medicine, so patients do not have to worry about getting ill.
Korean traditional herbal medicine can safely regularize irregular menstruation. Menstrual cramps, ovarian or uterine lumps or uterine myoma can also be treated with Korean traditional herbal medicine.
Vertebral & joint diseases
We aim to end pain rapidly and to minimize the recurrence of disease without using modern analgesics. Vertebral diseases and joint diseases are, apart from cases caused by trauma, mostly caused by weaknesses of the muscles, ligaments and cartilage. Because diseases of the muscles, ligaments, and cartilage are usually caused by aging or weakness of the liver and kidneys, strengthening the liver and kidneys results in strengthening of the muscles, ligaments and cartilage.
|Vertebral diseases||lumbago, herniated discs, neck pain, cervical discs, degenerative osteoarthritis, scoliosis, osteoporosis|
|Joint diseases||arthritis of the knees, the elbows, the ankles and the shoulders, rheumatoid arthritis, degenerative arthritis and frozen shoulders.|
Vertebral and joint diseases are mostly caused by weakness of the muscles, ligaments and cartilage, except for the cases caused by trauma. From the perspective of the Korean traditional medicine, the muscles, ligaments, and cartilage diseases are usually caused by aging or weakness of the liver and kidneys,(.) (S)strengthening the liver and kidneys results in strengthening of the muscles, ligaments and cartilage.
Korean traditional medicine treats arthritis with acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping treatment and Korean traditional herbal medicine and, unlike modern medicine, it does not aim only at a temporary pain-relief, neither does it cause any side effects to the body. We practice personalized treatments depending on the area affected and use differentiated Korean traditional herbal medicine prescriptions. Opting to treat vertebral & joint diseases with Korean traditional medicine is a wise decision.
Using Korean traditional medicine we treat a variety of skin diseases where modern medicine is ineffective. Skin diseases are caused by allergic reactions to foods that do not suit the constitution, or when viruses, germs, and fungi come into contact with the body.
|Various skin diseases||acne, urticaria, atopy, eczema, dandruff, purpura, seborrheic eczema, furuncle, herpes zoster, dry skin, alopecia areata|
Korean traditional medicine reinforces the lungs to create a balance with the other organs and uses constitution improvement therapy to filter the waste in the blood to clear it and improve the circulation to effectively treat atopy
|Treatment of atopy||Korean Traditional Herbal Medicine treatment, acupuncture / moxibustion, life style improvements, ointment treatment, aroma treatment, Korean traditional herbal medicine pack|

Traffic Accident Clinic
Post traffic accident symptoms can be divided into two types; psychological and physical.
|Psychological symptoms||Post-traumatic stress disorder (fear, anxiety, depression, irritability, insomnia, etc. due to shock) temperamental personality disorders, etc.|
|Physical symptoms||Damage and disability of joints, muscles, ligaments, nerves, etc., centered on physical pain|
From the perspective of Korean traditional medicine, the biggest cause of pain after a traffic accident is blood stasis. (Though t)-"delete" (T)raffic accidents do not show up in blood tests, X-ray tests, and MRI scans(.) (However), it does not mean there isn’t pain. Sprains or circulation disorders of the muscles and ligaments due to an abnormal arrangement of the spine mainly cause the pain.
Obesity is the base of a great deal of disease. Fewer meals and more exercise have been the only solutions for (the) obesity which impacts on many adult diseases as well as lifespan.
But diet and exercise therapy are not easy. “Hejo sobihwan”, the Korean traditional herbal medicine for obesity is made with non-harmful medicinal herbs and comes in a pill and so is easy to take. Patients can lose 2 ~ 3kg by taking these pills for 1 month.
Sasang Constitution Medical Information
Korean traditional medicine is Qi-medicine for prevention and treatment.
Sasang medicine is a constitution medicine that distinguishes 4 different types of constitution; Taeyang-in, Taeeum-in, Soyang-in and Soeum-in, depending on the strength of the organ functions. In this case Tae(大,big) and So (小, small) do not mean the physical size of the organs instead, they indicate whether the organ function is strong or weak.
people are the product of the universe and are born with the Qi heaven and the earth, which changes according to the movement of the four seasons.
In the human body, there are Qi of Yin & Yang and five elements of heaven and earth; these form a person’s Qi. The body’s Qi is the foundation of the material that maintains life, and the movement of the Qi is also a life activity of a person. When we compare people to heaven and earth we see that they are constrained by the 5 elements’ laws of motion, along with the universe, and share many concrete laws of motion.
As the Qi of heaven and earth are divided into the yin and yang, (so) we can distinguish between the yin and yang in a body’s Qi. Thus, changes in the movements of people’s and cosmic Qi must follow a unified discipline. In other words, if people conform to the universal order, they can lead a healthy life. However, if they do not, they develop diseases
Korean traditional medicine is a traditional Korean medicine to prevent and cure diseases based on this principle. Recently, Korean traditional medicine has developed tremendously. It’s basic research and clinical studies focus on intractable diseases (cancer, diabetes, hypertension, paralysis, hepatitis, etc.) and pursues animal testing on a selection of acupuncture points, anesthetics and pain relief using magnetic acupuncture, etc. In particular, basic research in Sasang medicine has a very special aspect.
Sasang medicine is a system-"delete" created by the Korean medicine scholar Lee Jae Mah. It diagnoses and treats disease based on the individual constitution. It is a unique theoretical system that treats disease through clinical proof of an individual’s image and appearance.
This is an important theory in Korean traditional medicine, and it added a new concept, called constitutional medicine, to the repertoire of Korean traditional medicine.
