The New Idea
Zoltán Nagy has established the first non-Western medical program in Hungary to be approved and supervised by Hungarian medical authorities. The program is staffed by doctors from Korea and Mongolia who are well versed in Eastern medical techniques which utilize natural, non-invasive treatments. These doctors work with Hungarian doctors to determine the best course of treatment and to see that the treatment is working.

Zoltán's program is a cost-effective alternative health care system. It provides comprehensive, high-quality health care for Hungarians who otherwise might go untreated. Moreover, the center is providing training for Hungarian doctors who are interested in incorporating Eastern methods of treatment into their practices. The center serves as a pilot and model for the investigation of Korean/Mongolian medicine in Hungary and in the broader European health care system.
