In science as a whole, the tendency can be observed that rapid technical development increases the tendency to specialization, with the consequence that the specialist knows more and more about an even smaller section of his field of observation, but at the same time loses sight of the whole and thus the systemic interrelationships. On one hand, this is deplored, but on the other hand, few steps are discernible to counteract it. In the field of health care, this tendency can be observed in equal measure. It is important to counter it not only from a scientific point of view, but also from an economic one: the high degree of technologization is associated with enormous costs, some of which have already been described as a “collapse in the costs of the health care system”. It therefore makes sense to engage in approaches and models of thinking that focus on the human being as a whole, whereby one can also fall back on the truism that the whole is more than the sum of its parts. In addition, it is necessary to counter the ignorance of the “specialists”, because in many cases human ignorance does not lag behind knowledge, but grows just as fast as it does.

The present diagnostic and treatment method (K.S.S method) developed by Sae-Yion Kim does not originate from the tradition of East Asia nor is it derived from it because it is not known in the traditional therapy and healing methods of East Asia. Much more, it does not have its starting point primarily in technical data collection, but analyzes, mostly through manual treatment, which also takes into account subtle differences that cannot be detected with machines, malfunctions in the protective nervous system (K.S.N.S.) of biological processes in humans and asks for their causes. The next step is to restore the natural process sequences. The work becomes thereby the cause to introduce a rethinking in the medicine by the fact that the natural processes and their utilization for the healing again more strongly into the focus of each medical treatment to move. The goal remains to support the healing process of a person, or at least to be helpful in coping with the impairments. In this context, it is not unrecognized that modern technology has made enormous progress possible, especially in diagnostics, which will contribute to the further optimization of diagnostics and healing processes, especially in combination with the naturopathic approach.

Sae-Yion Kim draws in his work on a considerable potential of experience and can refer to successes which remain “inexplicable” without the understanding of his method.

The work is therefore an important step on the way of the cross-linking of orthodox medical and naturopathic thinking. It should also be a contribution to trigger a broad discussion about the further interaction.

About this book:

This book presents a completely new and conclusive view of the neuro-physiological and motor regulation of humans. Mr. Sae-Yion Kim has recognized that in humans (and also in animals) there is a protective system which decisively influences the autonomously controlled statics and motor functions and the vegetative system of the body with fast unconscious nerve impulses only via the spinal cord. The author calls it the Kim’s protective nervous system (IONS). In the book, it is explained how significant the KSNS is for the health of humans.

The development of joint arthrosis is usually caused by a disorder of the KSNS. The joint is loaded incorrectly by the resulting muscular imbalance, parts of the cartilage layer in the joint rub-off more, and arthrosis develops. In his many years of observation, the author has found new ways (Sbon: method of investigating the underlying cause of the disease) to cure disorders of the KSNS by a new manual treatment method (Sdo). In this way, in a short series of manual therapy, it is possible to eliminate the muscular imbalance, the joint is again loaded normally, the damaged part of the cartilage grows back, and the arthrosis can heal. A large part of shoulder, hip and knee joint endoprostheses and intervertebral disc operations would become unnecessary. Chronic severe pain or dysfunction of the musculoskeletal system can also be cured by appropriate manual treatment and the damaged cartilage can regenerate.

It is shown that the KSNS has numerous nervous connections to the autonomic nervous system. Internal diseases can be favorably influenced by vegetative pathways, such as chronic constipation, chronic diarrhea, gastroesophageal reflux, liver disease, hypertension, hay fever, bronchial asthma and migraine. With sufficient basic anatomical knowledge, good powers of observation and sensitive hands, learning Kim’s method of treatment is not particularly difficult.

General recognition and dissemination of the theory of KSNS and its therapy is highly desirable.
