During the Joseon Dynasty, medicinal foods derived from herb were often more effective than traditional medicines. In addition, the royal family of the Joseon Dynasty believed that foods could be used as various disease treatments. Grain based foods, especially medicinal porridges, were most frequently used for diet therapy. We investigated various types of diet related diseases suffered by King Injo as well as show the diseases were treated using medicinal porridges based on information in the SeungjungwonIlgi, which is the daily record of the Royal Secretariat of the Joseon Dynasty.This study examined the SeungjungwonIlgi, which is the daily record of the Royal Secretariat of the Joseon Dynasty.This study examined  the SeungjungwonIlgi of King Injo from his 1st year (1623) to 27th year (1649) on website database maintained by the National Institute of Korean History. According to the records.King Injo suffered from severe diarrhea several times due mainly to febrille disease as well as abdominal dropsy, throughout his entire life. Major diseases affecting King Injo were due to his unhealthy eating habits and psychological factors. For treatment, royal doctors prescribed aroung15 medicinal porridges, including nelumbo(seed) porridge(Yeonja-juk), milk porridge(Tarak-juk), Chinese dioscorea porridge(Sanyak-juk), mungbean porridge(Nokdu-juk), perilla seed porridge(Imja-juk), adzuki bean porridge(Pat-juk),soybean porridge(Kong-juk), Korea leek porridge(Buchu-juk) and so on, In addition to other medical treatments. Diet therapy using medical porridge has been used throughout history since the Joseon Dynasty period. However, knowledge of traditional diet therapy and medicinal porridge used by monarchs in the Joseon Dynasty is insufficient. Therefore, in depth study is needed to understand the theory of traditional medicinal foods as well as explore their application to patients in the context of modern medicine.
