Dr. Yoo’s Alternative Medicine & Wellness Center was named in honor of the legendary Emperor of China, Shin Nong. Sometimes known as the Yan Emperor or the Emperor of the five grains, he is believed to have introduced the traditional Chinese medicine and the technique of acupuncture to help eliminate pain and cure ailments.
According to the legend, Emperor Shin Nong was an early tribal leader. He lived about 5000 years ago and is known in Chinese history as “The Divine Farmer” who taught ancient China the practices of agriculture.
Shin Nong is respected as the Father of Chinese medicine. In order to determine the nature of different herbal medicines, Shin Nong ate various kinds of plants to test and analyze their individual effects. According to the ancient texts, he tasted a hundred herbs including 70 toxic substances in a single day in order to help remove pains and illnesses. Shin Nong is assumed to be the author of “The Divine Husbandman's Materia Medica”, which is the earliest extant Chinese Medicine Book. This text includes 365 medicines derived from minerals, plants, and animals
