Speech difficulty with hemiplegia

Strokes may be the last one you may want to suffer from.  Dr Namsu Kim (Gudang) always emphasizes on prevention of illnesses by developing the habit of applying moxa on ourselves everyday. Through his long clinical experiences, he knows moxibustion prevents many different illnesses, especially strokes.  He also adds that strokes are difficult for patients as well as their families.
