“Seeds are essence of life and lump of energy. Vitality of seeds enlivens energy in our body and cure diseases” records an ancient Chinese medical book ‘Huangdi Neijing’. Professor Kim Hyung-dong, who is widely known as a seeds doctor, says “Seeds health is a method that you stick seeds on acupuncture points of ears with plaster. It has no side effect and is a cost effective alternative medicine.”
“Sore spot is like a bulb, meridian system electric cord and acupuncture point switch. To light the bulb, you need to find the switch first. Likewise, we need to find the right acupuncture point in our body which spreads around here and there such as ears, hands, foot, nose, eyes and head. Acupuncture points in ears I think have least side effect, the reason I stick seeds.”
It is notable that instead of using needles or moxa, Kim uses seeds. It is safe and everybody can do it without professional knowledge. It is known that people in ancient China attached millet, perilla seeds, mung beans and pills on ears to cure diseases. It is also known that ancient Japanese used grains of rice onto the whole acupuncture points of the body to cure diseases.
“When you get pain on your shoulder, apply seeds on the part. In other words, apply seeds on the part you feel pain. Once a seed is attached, leave it no more than 5 days. If you put too many seeds on your body, they might take your energy away and you could be dehydrated so be careful. Also, I recommend you to attach no more than 30 seeds at once.”
Kim’s seeds health class is held on 15th floor of SK Plaza building near Anguk station, Seoul, every Wednesday and Saturday. Call on 010 7788 2660 for more info.
