Traditional Korean Medicine: Tailored Approach and Non-surgical Therapies

With a rich history and enduring tradition, Traditional Korean Medicine has received widespread acceptance in Korea, proving its efficacy. It is often used effectively in general hospitals either when surgical treatment is not necessary or as an adjunctive means for pain management.

Individualized Treatment: Tailoring Medication to Unique Constitution

A standout feature of Traditional Korean Medicine lies in its capacity to deliver personalized treatment by considering individual constitutions. Doctors meticulously assess each patient’s constitution and symptoms to prescribe personalized herbal remedies. While this personalized approach is less prevalent in Western medicine, it has exhibited remarkable effectiveness for numerous patients.

Non-Surgical Therapies

Traditional Korean Medicine employs non-surgical therapies such as acupuncture, cupping, and other rehabilitation techniques to treat various diseases and symptoms. Especially in cases where surgery is not required but there is pain or surgery is not feasible, Korean medicine serves as an adjunctive method to enhance patient comfort and contribute to their overall health.

HIMEDI Patient Cases

Menopausal Management

For menopausal or perimenopausal women experiencing various physical and mental changes due to abrupt hormonal fluctuations, finding suitable treatment can be challenging. A patient from the United States experienced symptoms such as fever, hair loss, and rapid weight changes after entering menopause, but local hospitals could not identify the hormonal changes causing these symptoms. Seeking help from HIMEDI, hormonal imbalances were identified through various Traditional Korean Medicine tests, leading to acupuncture and herbal prescriptions that successfully restored hormonal balance.

Pain Management

In cases where surgery poses a high risk of recurrence, especially for elderly patients, Traditional Korean Medicine can provide significant pain relief. A Kuwaiti patient in her late 60s, post-carpal tunnel surgery with persistent fibrosis, sought relief from HIMEDI. Acupuncture, herbal treatments, and manual therapy were employed, significantly alleviating pain and improving muscle, joint, and nerve damage through traditional Korean rehabilitation therapy.
