Background and Objectives : Acupuncture as a therapeutic intervention is widely used for the treatment of many functional disorders such as substance abuse and mental dysfunction. Clinical trials are currently underway to determine the effectiveness of acupuncture in the treatment of drug addiction. Yet, there are still many unanswered questions about the basic mechanism of acupuncture. Studies have shown that both the psychomotor stimulant effects and rewarding properties of addictive drugs, including morphine, are sensitized by repeated drug administration and raised the possibility that both of these effects may be linked to the same or closely overlapping the mesolimbic dopamine systems. Neiguan (PC6) point on the pericardium channel which is associated with the brain and its mental function, has been used to treat mental, psychosomatic disorders and gastroenterological disorders. The present study was designed to investigate the effect of acupuncture on repeated morphine-induced changes in extracellular dopamine levels using in vivo microdialysis and to measure the effect of acupuncture on Fos-like immunoreactivity. Methods : Male Sprague-Dawley rats were treated twice a day for three days with increasing doses of morphine (10, 20 and 40 mg/kg, s.c.) or with saline. After 15 days of withdrawal, rats were challenged with morphine hydrochloride (5 mg/kg, s.c.). Acupuncture was applied at bilateral Neiguan (PC6) points for 1 min after the morphine challenge. Results showed that acupuncture at the specific acupoint PC6, but not at control points (tail and HE8) significantly decreased Fos-like immunoreactivity induced by a systemic morphine challenge or a single s.c. morphine injection in the morphine-repeated animals. Results and Conclusions : These results suggest that reduction in sensitization may be one mechanism whereby acupuncture alleviates morphine craving in addicts. Moreover, in a more general sense these results suggest that acupuncture can be used as a therapeutic intervention for correcting reversible malfunction of the body by direction of brain pathway and thus acupuncture can contribute to the biochemical balance in the central nervous system by regulating neurotransmitters.

Background and Objectives There was no clinical data except literary study on mutual correlation with autistic disorder in Western medical diagnosis and five kinds of flaccidity in infants(五軟), five kinds of retardation(五遲) in Oriental medical diagnosis. This study was performed to investigate the correlation of five kinds of flaccidity in infants(五軟), five kinds of retardation(五遲) to the children with autistic disorder and to set the time table for clinical diagnosis of developmental retardation by making a comparative study of normal developmental children so we can treat the children with autistic disorder in good time. Method We made the comparative study of interview sheets recorded by parents of total 163 children who were diagnosed as autistic disorder who visited HaeMa Oriental Medical Clinic with interview sheets recorded by parents of generally accepted normal developmental children(263) and then we took statistics. Results : 1. There was significant correlation with speech and walking among five kinds of flaccidity in infants(五軟), five kinds of retardation(五遲) in autistic disorder statistically and clinically in comparison with normal children. 2. There wasn't significant correlation with growth time of tooth among five kinds of flaccidity in infants(五軟), five kinds of retardation(五遲) on diagnosis of autistic disorder in comparison with normal children. 3. There was significant correlation with retardation of times going to toilet by oneself (it does not consist in five kinds of flaccidity in infants(五軟), five kinds of retardation(五遲).) in both of autistic disorder. Conclusion Autistic disorder was significantly correlated with the faculty of speech(語遲), retardation in walking out(行遲) of five kinds of flaccidity in infants(五軟), five kinds of retardation(五遲). We need to concrete the index of diagnosis, because it is so difficult to measure times and register retardation in tooth eruption(齒遲), retardation in hair-growing(髮遲), debility of neck and nape(頭項軟), flaccidity of extremities(手軟) and flaccidity of muscle(肌肉軟). And we can also use times going to toilet by oneself as one of diagnostic criteria because of its significant correlation. It is required to make early diagnosis of five kinds of flaccidity in infants(五軟), five kinds of retardation(五遲) using these criteria, and to treat them early by oriental medicine.

Objective : The relations of the heart size and seven emotions were described in Dong Yi Bo Gam, and we aimed to identify the correlations of the patients with anxiety disorder and their heart sizes. Methods : The subjects were 15 patients with anxiety disorder and 20 control groups. Chest radiography were performed. We measured patients' heart sizes and compared with control groups. Results : 1. The signigicant difference of somatization, anxiety, depression scale and Panic anxiety scale in SCL-90-R in patients with anxiety disorder from controls was confirmed. 2. The difference of thoracic sizes in patients with anxiety disorder and controls had no correlations. 3. The difference of heart sizes in patients with anxiety disorder and controls had no correlations. 4. The difference of cardiothoracic ratio in patients with anxiety disorder and controls had negative correlations. Conclusions : Based on these results, the patients with anxiety disorders and their heart sizes had no correlations. But in cardiothoracic ratio had negative correlations. So heart size and seven emotions have significant correlation.

The observation on eating impact on psychological aspect
Bang, Jung-Kyun ;
Journal of Oriental Neuropsychiatry, volume 16, issue 2, 2005, Pages 125~133
Object : This paper is designed to inquire into the influence of eating habits on the emotion of modem people. Method : The methodology is used that searches for materials such as books and treatises on the relationship between eating habits and emotion. Result : Meat used for fast food comes from cows that are fed the feed containing growth hormone and antibiotic. Growth hormone extremely supplements fire or yang within the body while antibiotics undermines the process of yin, leading to an accumulation of damp-heat and inflammation of ministerial fire. Additives contained in instant foods also impinge on the process of yin, leading to poor digestion, damp-heat toxins and ministerial fire. Excessive consumption of meat results in incomplete combustion of fat and hinders the formation of essence. Subsequently, ministerial fire becomes hyperactive as a result of the lack of yin energy. Increased meat consumption in the human diet is coupled with unhealthy eating pattern in which people eat too much for dinner and too quickly. Eating too much disturbs digestion, making it slow and incomplete, leading to excess damp-heat conditions, insufficient amount of vital essence and eventually hyperactive ministerial fire. Milk is considered a catalyst of faster growth, making it suitable for calves. Milk intake rapidly increases the balance of yang and eventually cause hyperactivity of ministerial fire. Conclusion : It is estimated that the eating habits of modern people cause the process of yang, making them feel restless, impatient and aggressive.

Journal of Oriental Neuropsychiatry, volume 16, issue 2, 2005, Pages 181~188
The purpose of this study is to investigate how much acupuncture treatment and autogenic training can affect to physical, mental relaxation through neurofeedback(Alpha/Theta training). I measured the numerical value of Alpha/H-Beta on the patient with facial tremor due to anxiety during acupuncture treatment and autogenic training, and when that patient wasn't relaxed I gave her feedback. The result shows that autogenic training is always more effective than aucupuncture in making the patient relaxed. On this case, the symptom was not much improved after having the treatments 10 times, but the frequency and intensity of the tremor decresed little. In according to the number of treatments, relaxtion didn't ascend regularly. I think it depends on the patient's condition or surroundings. I am unsatisfied I had only one case in this study and the number of treatments wasn't enough. In the future, much more clinical and statistical studies on herbal, musical, aroma therapies should be needed.

Tension headache is one of the most common form of headache. It may occur at any age, but is most common in adults and adolescents. One cause of this muscle contraction is a response to stress that induces changes and imbalance on autonomic nerve system. And it is not easy to classify the type of tension headache simply in oriental medicine. In this case, we described a 25-year old woman who diagnosed as tension headache. She complained headache with nausea and vomiting, and her condition was improved through oriental medical treatment.

Journal of Oriental Neuropsychiatry, volume 16, issue 2, 2005, Pages 267~276
Tremor is a rhythmic, involuntary muscular contraction characterized by oscillations(to-and-fro movements) of a part of the body. The most common of all involuntary movements, tremor can affect various body parts such as the hands, head, facial structures, vocal cords, trunk, and legs; most tremors, however, occur in the hands.

Tension Myositis Syndrome is defined as the muscle syndromes affected by brain signal as a result of stress. Furthermore, painful muscles cause tensional emotions in body system. Pain is the result of mutual co-operations between the brain and muscles. Unpleasant feelings increase the pain intensity. In addition, painful muscles were seen to have influences on the brain neurological system. Therefore, in spite of physical treatments, chronic pain has a tendency to be persistent and incurable. For psychological cures, We applied deep breathing, muscle relaxation therapy for anxious, sensitive chronic neck pain patient, then we evaluated her Visual Analogue Scale in reference to subjective feelings of pains every other day at 9 PM. In conclusion, We found that deep breathing and muscle relaxations helped reduce the feeling of pains for those who suffered from anxiety, tensional pains. Therefore, relaxation therapies are necessary methods for pain controls as well as physical treatments.
