Though the people of south and northern Korea have different names, they all have a common. The people of South Korea refer to themselves as Hanguk-in while the northern call themselves Joseon-in, all meaning people of Korea.

Koreans are considered descendants of ancient people from Manchuria, Mongolia, and south Siberia, who inhabited the northern Korean Peninsula. People of Korean heritage are those individuals who trace their lineage to the Korean state. People who trace their roots to Korea are of Korean heritage and share their characteristics with those of Korean people. People of Mexican heritage are people who trace their roots to Mexico. Mexico is a state in northern America that identifies itself as an independent state. Hispanic and Latino are commonly used by these people who have diverse sources to describe themselves.

There are those Koreans who migrated into Mexico and who can trace their heritage to Mexico. Asians who live in Mexico can also trace their roots to be similar to those of Korean.

The two communities have varying healthcare beliefs. The Koreans believe in healthcare; they believe in curative rather than preventive treatment measures. Many believe in Korean culture is based on the Buddhism religion. They believe fate or karma may be the reason for ill health. Disharmony is a natural force that they believe causes certain sicknesses like depression, hypo activity, and hypothermia, among other diseases like abdominal cramps (Lee, Choi, & Marqus-Pascual, 2016). The Koreans believe the treatment of such diseases should be using the opposite force to achieve body balance.

Their dietary is crucial for healthcare providers as they would help in administering prescriptions.

Mexican have different practices to cure diseases like prayer, folk, and herbal medicine. Other practices are prescription from a friend or prescription from medical doctors. They also consider individual nutrition and diet to heal diseases. Traditional treatment and health practices in the Korean community are different.
