The Society of Korean Medicine for Obesity Research founded in 1997, is conducting research on obesity studies based on Korean Medicine and related academic studies, obesity theory and treatment prevention and guidance, obesity information and data collection.
It has been proven through many studies that obesity is the main reason of various metabolic diseases. Diabetes, hyperlipidemia, and high blood pressure, which are called lifestyle-related diseases, shorten the lifespan of modern people and damage the quality of life. But if obesity is managed, the prevalence of theses diseases also decreases.
Korean medicine is a traditional or natural medicine that is suitable for the treatment of obesity, a chronic disease caused by multiple causes. This is even more so because obesity treatment is not just weight loss, but requires an integrated approach that requires holistic management.
The Society of Korean Medicine for Obesity Research holds academic conferences and training classes every year to provide various information that members can use in clinical practice while strengthening their academic roots. In addition, we are striving for academic development and protecting the rights and interests of our members. We ask for your interest in The Society of Korean Medicine for Obesity Research.
