ABSTRACT

In this paper, I propose the effects of food therapy on subjects’ health and happiness. The result has come out that food therapy enhances subjects’ multi-dimensional health(medical, functional, self-evaluative) and their happiness. The participants were 230 adults over 30 years old living in Seoul and Gyeonggi district. To examine the effect of food therapy, the study sampled 220 questionnaire out of 230. By the non-equivalent control group design, the health levels were measured in three concepts: medical dimension, functional dimension and self-evaluative dimension. The results are as follows: First, participants who had taken food therapy for 3 months have been enhanced in their subjective and functional health level. Their subjective health enhanced from 2.80±.44 to 4.07±.27 (p=.000). And their functional health enhanced from .92±.07 to .94±.07(p=.035). Second, participants’ happiness has enhanced significantly. Cognitive happiness enhanced from 3.39±.50 to 3.84±.44(p=.000). And emotional happiness enhanced from 2.76±.44 to 3.07±.34(p=.000). With this results, in case that people apply food therapy based on Yaksun, they are able to expect their enhancement of health level and happiness. Therefore study shows that Food therapy helps people to pursue their health and happiness improvement and suggest valuable information of a way to enhance quality of life.
