The 4th International Exhibition on Oriental Medicine (EXOM 2002) is on display at Seoulís Convention and Exhibition Center. Many medicinal remedies that have been passed down through the generations in East Asia were showcased alongside domestic health companiesí modern equipment meant to relax and palliate the body. As well, researchers and doctors discussed the science of oriental medicine with the public, in an attempt to have it gain more acceptance with the public, as many patients are becoming dissatisfied with the solutions that Western medical treatments provide. The scientific community is showing a greater interest in looking into the validity of these Eastern treatments that have stood the test of time. Many doctors are seeking to bridge the Eastern and Western medical paradigms into a form of complimentary or alternative treatment to heal the body.
