The Integration of Western and Oriental medicinal treatments for cognitive
developmental disorders in infants and toddlers (Autism, ADHD etc.)

Oriental medicine is a medical treatment with a long tradition, and abundant records show its effectiveness in various intractable diseases. However, because oriental medicine cannot be combined with modern science, the diagnostic tools and emergency management systems for diseases are weak. Therefore, it is critical to developing an integrated and scientific convergence medicine that inherits the traditional oriental treatment based on the diagnosis and management system of scientific medicine combined with science.

I Tomato Oriental Clinic is opening a new chapter in treating incurable diseases by understanding both western and oriental medicine. To this end, together with the Floortime Center, Korea, we are taking the lead in providing necessary treatment, the latest treatment, and integrated treatment for children’s development.

Recently, I Tomato Oriental Clinic and Floortime Center, Korea launched the Floortime Homeschool Program by integrating the research work, field experience, and know-how obtained for many years by experts on child development. Through this, we provide a variety of online coaching programs that allow parents to lead children’s developmental play at home easily.


Dr. Moon Ju Kim of I Tomato Clinic graduated from the Department of Life Sciences at Yonsei University and the College of Oriental Medicine at Gachon University. During the 2000s, he was the first oriental medical doctor in Korea to start treating epilepsy with oriental medicine.

Advocating for a hospital that combines western medicine and oriental medicine, he established the I Tomato Oriental Medicine Hospital (formerly East-West Convergence Hospital) in 2013, treating pediatric brain diseases such as autism, epilepsy, and ADHD syndrome. Recently, he published a paper on ‘Effect and Safety of SGT for Drug Resistant Childhood Epilepsy’ in an SCI-level international academic journal, taking the lead in oriental medicine treatment for intractable pediatric neurological diseases.
Currently, he is the chief doctor in the I Tomato Oriental Clinic, focusing on treating intractable diseases in children, namely developmental disorders of infants and young children such as autism and Asperger’s syndrome and intractable brain diseases in children.
