Won Sook Chung Foundation

General Information

Established in 2012, the Won Sook Chung Foundation’s mission is to promote research and education in alternative medicine. Won Sook Chung, the foundation’s benefactor, believed in the importance of looking beyond the established medical paradigm to address the illnesses typical of the 21’st century. Our current healthcare environment emphasizes treating symptoms rather than discovering cures thus perpetuating the need for expensive procedures as well as the lifelong use of pharmaceuticals. The need for study of remedies that are only accessible outside of a profit-driven medical economy has reached a critical juncture. So much of alternative medicine comes from that which already exists in the natural environment and is therefore either unable to be patented or exists without the need for special manufacturing. Other therapies were developed thousands of years ago or lack what seems to be an established cultural requirement of extensive medical technology. Nevertheless, these therapies have great potential for diagnosing and healing many of the chronic illnesses which currently remain a mystery to modern day medicine. As the medical landscape shifts from an acute care model to chronic illness and prevention, the Won Sook Chung foundation fulfills a vital role at a critical time in the history of human health.
