Director Seo Hyo-seok of Pyunkang Korean Medicine Hospital hosted a lecture meeting at the EL Tower in Seoul on March 17 with the attendance of ambassadors and other members of the Seoul Diplomatic Corps. Due to the worst COVID Pandemic conditions on that day in Korea when the number of new cases hit the so-far highest 621,328 persons, the number of the ambassadors and other senior members of the Seoul Diplomatic Corps were a little more than one half of the number originally registered.
All the same, however, the health tips given by Director Seo were very important especially at the time when the new cases were the highest so far.
In addition to the ambassadors and other senior diplomats, there also Seoul bureau chiefs of major news media stationed in Seoul, who included the Seoul bureau chiefs of the People’s Daily of China and the Chinese Legal Daily.
Perhaps the most important part of the meeting that day might be considered the question-and-answer session between the host (Director Seo) and the members of the Diplomatic Corps.
Among the inquirers was Charge d’Affairs Luis Pablo Ossio Bustillos of Bolivia in Seoul.
He asked, “Director Seo, you said that healthy lungs strengthen the tonsils and also immunity system. Is snoring in sleep related to tonsils?”
Director Seo said, “Yes, it is related with tonsils. If your tonsils are not swollen after treating them, you can see the phenomenon of snoring and sleeplessness improving a lot.”
The next question came from Political Counselor Peter Fifea of Romania, who said, “I heard that you can treat pancreatic cancer, breast cancer, bone marrow cancer, and blood cancer by cleaning your lungs. Can you treat liver cancer also?”
Director Seo replied, “Yes, of course. If you clean your lungs, you can also treat liver cancer within a year.”
Director Seo’s lecture was very well received by all the attendants as it was directly related with health, especially the respiratory organs that are so important in the human body.
Introduction of the ambassadors and other members of the Diplomatic Corps was done by Vice Chairperson Joy Cho of The Korea Post media, who was, among other duties, in charge of covering the Seoul Diplomatic Corps, especially the ambassadors and their spouses. After the health-tip lecture, there was demonstration session of the traditional Korean checker game called Baduk which Japanese call Go.
