"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth..." (Genesis 1:1)
Unlike the western medicine, a man is considered as a small universe according to the Eastern medicine. Sun and moon, heaven and earth, day and night, land and water, man and woman have the relationship of Yin and Yang in the universe and are created by God. When the little universe in our body works harmoniously we are able to enjoy the good health that creates good Ki(Qi).
"The Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being." (Genesis 2:7)
The breath("Ki") was given by God and is life. Good Ki brings you longevity. Having a disease means not having enough Ki for a healthy living. There is no blood without Ki, no circulation without Ki, and no life without Ki. God formed the man from the dust and breathed the breath of life to give life. The Ki plays very important role in the Korean traditional medicine.
An accurate diagnosis is the key to an effective treatment. Using 5,000 years of tradition the basic examination involves:

- Asking: Ask questions regarding fever, chill, sweat, appetite, dry mouth, nausea, ringing in the ear, vertigo, throbbing heart, pain, bleeding, abnormal menstruation, elimination, tight shoulders, etc.
- Touching: Most importantly, feel the pulse. Some are along with abdominal examination.
The most important thing in life is health.
People are health conscious and desire to live longer. They try to be healthy. People give attention to any products that promote health.
Health is life. Jesus said, "That good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul?" With the desire to be healthy, people don't know how or don't practice.
For many reasons life span has extended. Living a long life without a good health doesn't appeal to anyone. It only adds pain. How do you live a healthy life?
First of all, live in a regular schedule including regular meals. One thing is for sure. Eat when you are hungry and sleep when you are tired. When you listen to your body it adds to your health.
In addition, when you notice any difference in your body consult the health profession instead of wasting your time and money on fad health products.
