Seed therapy is a therapy used to improve natural immunity and healing power. Like it is reported that some Japanese stick a grain of rice on a spot of blood vessel to improve symptoms and some Chinese stick mung beans oreundan on ears to ease the pain, seed therapy is being received as a simple and economic cure with less side effects. Seed therapy is known to improve headache, menstrual pain, shoulder pain, zoster, depression, insomnia and allergy.
“Seeds are the essence of life. Putting the seeds on spots of blood vessels can balance the energy of our body and improve natural immunity” says professor Kim Hyung-dong, a seed therapy authority in Korea.
Putting a seed is similar to acupuncture, according to Kim, so the seed spots are the starting points of healing. Seeds should be put according to parts and symptomslike shoulder, waist and angles. The reason many people prefer to put seed on ears is that ears are closest to the brain and are the sensitive part so they respond quickly with almost no side effects.
However, seed therapy can be effective when applied appropriately according to each body type: taeyangin, taeeumin, soyangin and soeumin. Each type affects what they eat, and what their characters, hobbies and jobs are. Therefore, taeyangin is recommended to use napa cabbage or grape seed, soyangin canola or cucumber seed, taeeumin radish seed, and soeumin cabbage seed. If you do not know your type, Kim recommends using spinach or rice seed.
Kim published <Seed Health> in 1996 followed by the revised version <Being Healthy by Seed Master Kim Hyung Dong>. In 2000, he flew to Los Angeles and worked as an energy healing doctor for 6 years at an affiliate medical center of the Kheir Center which provides medical services for immigrants at affordable price; Kim was supported with USD850,000 for his research and treatment during the stay; he now is teaching and curing people at an office building in Gangnam District, Seoul. “We can be healthy by having a right habit of eating, action and thinking. If, however, when you get ill, seed therapy can be a good and cheap alternative” said Kim.
