North Korea Koryo Medicine

ADVANCE FOR USE SUNDAY, MAY 5, 2013 AND THEREAFTER - A jar containing a fat-preserved ginseng root believed to be a century old is seen at the Pyongyang Medical College in Pyongyang, North Korea on Feb. 21, 2013. Traditional medicine is used widely in many Asian countries, including China, Japan and South Korea, where there is no shortage of modern treatment and equipment. And while scientific research regarding the benefits of some age-old treatments is lacking, therapies such as massage and acupuncture - which can also serve as a local anesthetic - are now widely used in the West.
