We touched base recently with one of our clients who recovered from a case of the Coronavirus.

“For a week I just thought I was sick. And then I lost all taste and smell so I knew I should get tested for COVID,” said Junho, who fell ill at the end of June.

By this point we know someone personally who’s contracted COVID-19 (the Coronavirus, or officially SARS-CoV-2). The stories about those people have varied widely, from an absence of symptoms to fighting for their life. 

We are now months into the pandemic and have an idea what the common symptoms are. These symptoms include headache, loss of taste and smell, body aches, and shortness of breath. All of these can lead to much suffering. With no cure for the virus, many are looking for remedies to help ease the symptoms as much as possible.


Family Friends

Junho, describing his symptoms, shared, “My body ached so much and I was really struggling to breath. If I walked around for a little bit I would need to sit down.” He added, “Losing taste was one of the weirdest things I ever experienced,”

At the beginning of July Junho went in to get a COVID-19 test. A few days later his fears were confirmed. He tested positive for the virus. Junho stated, “My mother knew what I was going through and when I tested positive she told me about her friend who is a patient of Dr. Ko. The friend raved about the ‘hanyak’ Dr. Ko concocted for her.”

In an effort to help provide some much needed comfort and healing, Junho reached out to Dr. Ko.



Dr. Ko put together a custom tea for Junho. Hanyak, as Junho called it, is a traditional Korean medicine. Junho described his particular process: “I drank the tea Dr. Ko gave me three times a day. It helped alleviate a lot of the aches and pains I was experiencing. It made the symptoms of Coronavirus a lot more manageable. Even though I was positive for over a month, things were better once I started drinking the tea.”

He’s now COVID-free (thank goodness!) and able to live more comfortably.

“Even when I finally tested negative I kept drinking the tea until I was done…just in case.”
