Korean medicine (KM) or Korean traditional medicine (KTM) experienced the harsh modernization of the 19th century, and has maintained its social status as clinical professionals and established unique educational systems based on the distinctive cultural, social, and political situations of Korea. They use various different herbal medicines in their day to day lives which keep them healthy and leading to them in the direction of the meaning of life. An example of herbal medicine is the use of medicinal mushrooms as a food and as a tea. A notable mushroom used in traditional Korean medicine is Phellinus linteus known as Song-gen. Acupuncture is the other method which Korean follows from the ancient period till date. Scientific investigation has not found any histological or physiological evidence for traditional Chinese concepts such as qi, meridians, and acupuncture points, and many modern practitioners no longer support the existence of life force energy (qi) flowing through meridians, which was a major part of early belief systems. Another traditional medicine they used to follow is moxibustion. Pressure points can be stimulated through a mixture of methods ranging from the insertion and withdrawal of very small needles to the use of heat. In the modern day practitioners used to stimulate pulses through laser, massage and other electrical means.

Unani medicine, also known as Unani tibb, is a traditional medicine known for healing and health maintenance. The origins of Unani medicine are mainly found in the doctrines of the ancient Greek physicians Hippocrates and Galen. Being a field, it was later developed and refined through systematic experiment by the Arabs who converted some traditional medicines as arab or unani medicines, most prominently by Muslim scholar-physician Avicenna either by using healing herbs or techniques. During the Caliphate, the bulk of Greek knowledge was translated into Arabic same with the idea of medicine acting as the principles of medicine. With additional contributions of medical wisdom from different or other parts of the Middle East and South Asia, Unani medicine came out to be known as Arabian, or Islamic, medicine.

Acupuncture is a famous technique involving the insertion of extremely thin or needles through skin at different strategic points on human body. Being an important component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture has been the most commonly used method for the treatment of pain. Traditional Chinese medicine demonstrates acupuncture as a well known method for balancing the flow of energy or life force also known as qi or chi (CHEE) which is believed to flow through pathways in human body. By slotting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture believes that by this experiment energy flow will re-balance. In contrast, many of the western practitioners see acupuncture points as places to stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissues. Some also believe that this stimulation enhances body's natural painkillers and increases the rate of blood flow.

International agencies, corporations and governments are moreover investing in traditional herbal medicine clinical research. So, little literature addresses ethical challenges in this research. Concepts are applied in a comprehensive ethical framework for clinical research to international, traditional and herbal medicine research. Significant challenges exist in determining the equally shared concepts of social value, scientific validity and favorable risk as benefit ratio across international research collaborations. Method involved like cross-training investigators, and investing in safety-monitoring infrastructure, the issues identified by this comprehensive framework can promote ethically sound international herbal medicine research that contributes to global health.

Phytotherapeutic specialists have organized arrangements comprising of complex blends of at least one plant which contains dynamic fixing plant parts or plant material in the unrefined or prepared state. A checked development in the overall phytotherapeutic advertises has happened in the most recent 15 years. For the European and USA alone, this will reach about $7 billion and $5 billion for every annum, separately, in 1999, and has developed a concern for most huge pharmaceutical organizations. Many of the times Inadequate information exists for most plants to ensure their quality, viability and wellbeing. The possibility that home grown medications are sheltered and free from symptoms is false. Plants contain many constituents & different parts and some of them are extremely harmful, for example, the most cytotoxic against tumor plant-determined medications, digitalis and the pyrrolizidine alkaloids. In any case, the unfriendly impacts of phytotherapeutic operators should be controlled by clinical researches. A few administrative models for home grown pharmaceuticals are presently accessible including physician recommended drugs, over-the-counter substances, conventional solutions and dietary supplements.So that the quality of medicine should be maintained.
