About Longevity & Life Preservation In Eastern Medicine Longevity & Life Preservation In Eastern Medicine is the work of Dr Lee Je-ma (who is recognized as the founder of SCM). The original copy is made up of 4 volumes of 2 books each. Some parts were published during his lifetime, while his two pupils compiled the unpublished manuscripts after death. The theory of SCM and treatments were systematically established in Longevity & Life Preservation In Eastern Medicine . The basic theory, the clinical method & results, and the effects of the treatments are clearly recorded and laid out for the reader. In basic terms, the individual has been categorized as Taiyang, Soyang, Taieum, or Soeum according to its tendencies and characteristics, and the changes of all diseases differ according to characteristics of constitution. This principle was laid out clearly so that anyone could understand the characteristics of human physiology, and apply the treatment. Therefore, Longevity & Life Preservation In Eastern Medicine is a general medical document which can be used by not only those who are engaged in various medical fields, but also by the common people who want to study this type of philosophy and want to take care of their one health according to the constitutions. Getting Closer to Dr Lee Je-ma s 100 Year Dream Dr Lee, Je-ma (1837-1900) foretold before his death that, "SCM will have the influence all over the world after a century". One hundred years later, 'Longevity & Life Preservation In Eastern Medicine has been now translated into English. The foundation stone of Dr Lee, Je-ma s dream has been now established. Translating the traditional medicine texts is extremely hard task. Since the terms used in traditional medicine are not standardized in English, the translation process includes not only transforming words but also expressing the Oriental medical theories completely. Professor Choi, Seung-hoon (translator) commenced the translation process with his English lecture experience on Longevity & Life Preservation In Eastern Medicine while lecturing at the China Medical University in Taichung, Taiwan. Following his return to Korea, Professor Choi was at the head of the drive for the standardization of traditional medicine terms in English while working as the Regional Adviser in the Traditional Medicine, Western Pacific Regional Office for the WHO. As a result, the WHO-IST (WHO International Standard Terminologies on Traditional Medicine in the Western Pacific Region) was published in July 2007. The publication of the WHO-IST was one of the catalysts for the release of Longevity & Life Preservation In Eastern Medicine on a global scale. This revised version of Longevity & Life Preservation In Eastern Medicine will be an opportunity to move another step closer to realizing Dr Lee Je-ma s dream.
