Traditional Korean Medicine

Traditional Korean medicine has developed from traditional Chinese medicine but has developed different distinctive features. During the tenth century, Chinese medicine was introduced in Korea but the Koreans have started to develop their own medicinal practice. Hence the traditional Korean medicine has come into practice at around 5000 years ago. The main techniques of Traditional Korean Medicine consist of medicinal treatment, acupuncture, and Sasang constitutional medicine. Of all these Sasang are a unique technique and a major treatment regime in Traditional Korean medicine. In traditional Korean medicine, the key process is to observe natural physical functions as they appear in order to analyze an illness or disorder instead of going deep into by dissection, analysis, and experimentation. Experimental and genetic studies of TKM have indicated linkage with pharmacogenomics.
