i am very interested in the workings and development of all natural medicines.  as a doctor, i find i'm uncomfortable giving young children tablets, injections and medicines made of harsh chemical products in laboratories.  very few of our medicines are natural, except for aspirin, extracted from willow tree bark. the development of koryo in north korea is a step forward for introducing natural medicines into hospitals and medical facilities, and i wish you well in continuing to strengthen the development!
