Modern medicine has many kinds of synthetic drugs to treat chronic diseases. However, once patients start to take them, they usually become slaves to these drugs, needing more and more to suppress symptoms in a constant cycle of repression and recurrence that aggravates their bodies.

So, for example, a patient asks, “Doctor, will I be fully cured?”

The doctor replies, “Chronic nasal inflammation is a disorder that you will have for the rest of your life.”

Patient: “What about asthma?

Doctor: “The same with asthma.”

Patient: “What about atopic allergies, COPD, arthritis, diabetes, and heart disorders?”

Doctor: “The same with those diseases.”

Although all hospitals around the world may appear to heal diseases extremely well, often in the process, treatments destroy the immune system and aggressive treatments kill normal healthy cells. This causes patients to die gradually, suffering from pain induced by the toxicity of the drugs.

Many people nowadays blindly believe in synthetic drugs, but their harmful consequences are truly severe and enormous. For example, the disease symptoms that arise as a result of taking synthetic drugs are referred to as “side effects.” However, when there is an action, there must be an equal and opposite reaction, and it would be more accurate to call these symptoms that arise “reactions” rather than “side effects.”

It is not right to try to treat a disease without addressing the fundamental cause.

The real problem with synthetic medicine is that its nature is foreign to the body, and it is simply not possible to expect the body to find homeostasis and true health as a result of injecting it with a foreign substance. This is because when a foreign substance enters, your body will become highly tense, and the next time it encounters this unfamiliar substance, it will reject it.

On the other hand, your body has been designed to recognize and be friendly toward the countless substances in nature. So when it encounters natural medicines, your body will welcome them as though meeting a long-cherished friend. This is the reason why our body, which is born out of the nature, responds well to herbal medicine.

At best, synthetic medicine can only pacify the symptoms of disease. Analgesics, sedatives, and anti-inflammatory medications eliminate discomfort temporarily. However, these medications don’t treat the cause of disease. It is a very dangerous thing for doctors to treat diseases without treating their underlying causes.

Many drugs, including steroids, antihistamines, antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, and anti-cancer drugs, are toxic to the body and accumulate in it. The accumulation of toxic waste in the body accordingly ends up destroying the immune systems of patients, which leads to the severe aggravation of chronic diseases.

For these reasons, it is not right to try to treat a disease without addressing the fundamental cause. These kinds of drugs should be reserved for temporary use during emergency situations but not continued over long periods of time to maintain health.

Anyone who gets sick will resort to medicine with two desires: first that the drug be effective and secondly that it work quickly. However, both of these wishes are misguided and will definitively lead to adverse results.

For example, hypotensive drugs for high blood pressure, and drugs for diabetes and asthma are highly effective. Patients will experience an immediate drop in blood pressure or blood glucose levels, or the quick cessation of asthma symptoms. Their results seem amazing—just like magic.

However, once you start these drugs, there is no natural stopping point, and you may have to take them for the rest of your life. The longer you take them, the more and more potent dosages you will need.

Then before you know it, you will be taking a fistful of drugs, and your body will become increasingly more tired, with soreness, numbness, and pain in the limbs. With this constant pain, the will and desire to live will gradually and increasingly drain out of you.

What then can you do in order to heal? You can strengthen your body so it is able to heal disease. You do not have to take any synthetic drugs to heal chronic diseases, and you can feel extremely comfortable and be healthy.

The real problem with synthetic medicine is that its nature is foreign to the body.

In order for your body to heal these diseases, your lungs must be thoroughly cleansed. Once the lungs are clean, their capacity will increase. This will naturally lead to the optimal conditions for the health of the tonsils, which are a key first line of defense of the immune system.

Once the tonsils are strengthened, you will then be able to heal from a wide range of diseases. After two months of cleansing your lungs with herbal therapy, you will not catch the common cold anymore, chronic nasal inflammation (rhinitis) will disappear after three months, and the roots of asthma will be uprooted after four months of cleansing the lungs.

The improved health of the lungs will also improve the elimination of waste via the skin and can thus heal atopic conditions such as eczema.

In addition, cleansing the lungs can help treat infectious diseases. Although antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medications are effective at killing viruses, you can also overcome them if you have fortified the health of the tonsils. With healthy tonsils, you will have little difficulty overcoming infectious diseases such as MERS, SARS, avian flu, and swine flu.

Farewell and Thanks

For the past 30 weeks, I have been writing articles for the Epoch Times. I have done my best to raise awareness of the “side effects” of synthetic drugs, which are prescribed indiscriminately in modern medicine and with unsatisfactory knowledge of the fundamental causes of the diseases being treated.

I have attempted to present an alternative means of true healing, one that does not require any synthetic drugs and works by restoring the immunity and natural healing capabilities of body. The Korean herbal formula I use does this by cleansing and fortifying the lungs. With this therapy, thousands of people have been able to enjoy a long life in great health.

I hope my articles have interested you and given you hope where perhaps you had none. I came to discover these secrets of Korean medicine over the past 43 years by completely curing approximately 155,000 patients who were suffering from all sorts of allergic, chronic, and terminal illnesses; severe pulmonary disorders; and excruciating pain.

A large number of medical doctors, professors, and patients with chronic diseases throughout the world who have read these columns and emailed me messages of encouragement and a wide range of inquiries have further motivated me in my writing.

This provided me with the impetus to complete this series of articles. I would like to convey my sincerest gratitude for the interest and support of all readers and sincerely hope that you will be able to join me in the new era of strong immunity through cleansing the lungs with herbal medicine.
