Korean Traditional & Modern Medicine

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.
