Chinese herbal medicine acupuncture are complimentary therapeutic modalities that are often used together
in the treatment of a variety of medical conditions.
Over the past 5,000 years, Chinese Herbology has evolved into an art form of its own. Ancient herbal information
was gathered, complied, formulated, tested, and handed down from generation to generation.
Today, practitioners of Chinese medicine continue to prescribe herbal formulas because they are a powerful
therapeutic method. A practitioner who makes use of herbs is familiar with most of the 1,800 herbs in the Chinese
Pharmacopia. All of these herbs are classified according to their energetic qualities, functions, and the different
organs, meridians, and disharmonies for which they address.
Individual herbs are combined in order to enhance their actions and effects upon the body. When combined,
a unique, synergistic formula is created. This combination increases the benefits of a particular formula, and
minimizes any harmful side effects.

Within each formula exists a specific hierarchy of herbs:
1) Chief Herb – This herb has the greatest effect upon the principle problem and is the most important ingredient.
It is the energetic and therapeutic focus of the entire formula.
2) Deputy Herb – These herbs support the Chief herb in the treatment of the principle problem.
Deputy herbs usually address secondary signs and symptoms.
3) Assistant Herb – The role of assistant herbs is to support, and reinforce the effects of other herbs.
They also help moderate or eliminate any harsh properties of herbs within the formula.
4) Envoy Herbs – Envoy herbs harmonize, guide, and focus the action of the entire formula on certain meridians
or areas of the body.

According to DONG-UI-BO-GAM(Examples of Medical practice in Korea), one of the most
authoritative sources of Korean traditional medical science, KYUNGOKGO is the first
choice of prescription for those who seek after healthy, long life. Because of its
pleasant flavor without side effect, this herbal medicine was widely consumed by
families of the Joseon‘s ruling class including royal families.
- Ingredients : White ginseng, Hoelen, Rehmannia root, Honey
- Treats : Weak constitution, physical exhaustion, convalescent weakness, menopausal disorder
- Dosage/Administration : Mix approximately 20g in warm water or medicinal spirits and take on an empty
stomach in morning and evening.
Herbal mixture treats skin problems; 'Kyungokgo' also restores water energy and sexual stamina If you have
dry skin and your hands and your feet become easily chapped, you may have what Oriental medicine
doctors (OMD) call “umhojung”’ a disease often accompanied by weak knees, thinning hair, muscle tension
and improperly functioning tendons .According to Oriental medicine, this disease is caused by a lack of
essential hormones in the body and by a deficiency of blood.
The root of the problem lies in a dearth of “water” energy, one of the five elemental energies that make up the
universe in Chinese philosophy. Like a tree without water, our body will slowly weaken when it is without water
energy. The herbal mixture Koreans call “kyungokgo” is the perfect solution to this problem.
It not only fortifies our body with the water energy it lacks: It also retards the aging process, strengthens bones
and boosts the circulation of hormones. It is believed to help increase sexual stamina and restore one's virility.
For those who have to concentrate all their energies on preparing for exams or tests, there is no better herbal
medicine than this. It quickly and easily relieves fatigue and weakness, refreshing the mind and body.
Kyungokgo is made from a mixture of three major herbs “sukjihwang”, “ ginseng” and “baek bokryung” and
water. These ingredients are boiled at the lowest possible temperature for about a week, until they congeal
into a thick paste. It is usually made in a very remote place, like a mountain, so nobody disturbs the process,
which involves many hands and requires special care to insure its efficaciousness. This herbal remedy,
best taken mixed with hot water as a tea, has been considered an excellent health restorative since ancient
times. It was recommended especially for the elderly, many of who continually lack energy.
In the Joseon period, KYUNGOKGO was regarded as very precious medicine so that it had to be made only
after a devoted prayer service to goods of heaven and earth, and consumed by people of all ages and
physical constitutions. BOHWA KYUNGOKGO is one of Wonkwang's major achievements in its 70years history
traditional medical science. It is a remarkable product made by combining the knowledge lasting for over
four hundred years with today' science methods.
The “Tongui Bogam” the best known text on Oriental medicine, lists kyungokgo as a powerful remedy that
strengthens the heart and spleen. Because it boasts so many restorative powers, the remedy is also believed
to prolong one's life span.
In today's fast paced world, most people tend to disregard the need for a proper diet and a moderate
lifestyle and reflexively reach for medicine whenever an obvious, health endangering problem arises.
But according to Oriental medicine, it is important that humans eat healthy foods, exercise regularly and take
herbal medicine on a daily basis, as prevention is the best cure.
