We are dedicated to providing care to the patients whom modern medicine gave up.

Weedahm has become the hospital that GI patients visit as the last resort. After 29 years of examining and studying Damjeokbyung, we would like to provide a satisfying solution for GI patients who are frustrated because of the failure to identify a disease despite serious stomach symptoms. We posted new stomach-related knowledge that we gathered on the website of Weedahm Korean Medicine Hospital. From now on, we will be the guide for the people of the country, to lead them to their healthy stomach.
Thank you for visiting our website, and we hope this helps your stomach health.

※ What is ‘phlegm(dam)’ in Traditional Korean Medicine?
Many people are asking what ‘phlegm’ is and where it comes from. People tend to say they have ‘phlegm’ when they feel stiffness in their shoulders or the back of their necks. This makes people mistake ‘phlegm’ as a kind of surgical disorder. However, it is not known to many what ‘phlegm’ really is or what it means to have ‘phlegm.’ ‘Phlegm’ is not a disease. Rather, it is dark and dirty pathological material that causes diseases. It is a decayed remnant of food that is not properly digested or absorbed, not even being excreted. Also, the fluid in the body is not circulated properly and creates thick, turbid pathological material that looks like phlegm. That is why it is called ‘phlegm (痰)’ which means phlegm in Chinese. To make it easier to understand, ‘phlegm’ is like yellow, decayed plaque that results from the decaying of food remnants stuck at the gap between a tooth and gum. It is possible to explain how ‘phlegm’ causes diseases by comparing it to what happens on the gum when you have plaque. Dental plaque is created when microorganisms stick to the food remnants between teeth and gum and these bacteria multiply. This is similar to what happens with ‘phlegm.’ Since dental plaque is sticky, the calcium, phosphorous, or other minerals in the bloodstream stick to it to form stone-like materials, which is dental calculus. Like this, ‘phlegm’ causes pathologic events when it turns the tissue affected by ‘phlegm’ stone-like. This happens in many powers of our body where ‘phlegm’ accumulates. Cholesterol, heavy metal, collagen, or fibrin, which is a type of blood coagulant, as well as other minerals and contaminants that easily coagulate gather up to stiffen the tissues or create stone-like solid materials. This ‘phlegm’ toxin can be wedged in our blood vessels to cause atherosclerosis or stuck in our muscles to make them feel stiff. When it is wedged in our heart, it can cause myocardial infarction or angina pectoris. It can cause diseases in the uterus, thyroid, liver, or pancreas, causing myoma, tuber, hardening, or other transformation of tissues. It can even make our stomachs harder.
