A Study of Diaphoretic Therapy[汗法] in "Yumunsachin(儒門事親)"
Kim, Ki-Wook ; Park, Hyun-Kuk ; Jung, Kyung-Ho ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 21, issue 1, 2008, Pages 1~11
Jangjahwa(張子和) was influenced by "Hwangjenaegyeong(黃帝內經)" and Yuhagan(劉河間)'s theory, and other classics. Also, his clinical experience was helpful to theorize his thought. Thus, he improved medical theory by combining previous medical theory and his own experience. The essence of his thought is the importance of pathogenic Gi[邪氣] as the cause of disease and is Sambeop(三法) of Hantoha(汗吐下) as the methodology for removing pathogenic Gi[邪氣] away. He regarded pathogenic Gi as the cause of disease, and eliminated pathogenic Gi for the remedy. Namely, Sambeop(三法) of Hantoha(汗吐下) was selected as the best efficient method for driving pathogenic Gi away. Sambeop of Jangjahwa(張子和) have different meaning from previous one. Traditionally, Diaphoretic Therapy[汗法] was regarded as therapy for exogenous disease[外感病], and its effect was regarded as Balhanhaepyo(發汗解表). Emetic therapy[吐法] was throwing up Dameumsuksik(痰飮宿食) of stomach and above diaphragm. Purgation therapy[下法] means Tongbyeon(通便), Hajeok(下積), Sasil(瀉實), Chuksu(逐水) were regarded as therapy for Yangmyeongsiljeung(陽明實證) of Sanghan(傷寒). He submitted a new extensive concept of Sambeop adding traditional one, and expanded the application range of Sambeop. All methods, can cause circulation of Gihyeol(氣血) by opening the 'Hyeonbu(玄府)', like Moxibution therapy[灸薰], Steaming[蒸], Washing[洗],Heat therapy[慰], Cauterization[烙], Acupuncture therapy[鍼刺], Stone needling, Physical and breathing exercise[導引], Massage[按摩] were regarded as Diaphoretic Therapy[汗法]. Especially, he thought that Diaphoretic Therapy and venesection[瀉血] have same medical implication. If we examine the process of pushing out pathogenic Gi[邪氣] by means of Sambeop(三法), we can find the intermediation, that is circulation of Gihyeol(氣血). Its meaning is implied in the word of 'opening Hyeonbu(玄府)'. He thought that the circulation of Gihyeol(氣血) is the key to control health. Gihyeol(氣血) was circulated well under the physiological balance, but it was not circulated well under the invasion of pathogenic Gi[邪氣]. In other words, pathogenic Gi is the immediate cause of bad circulation of Gihyeol(氣血) and disease. Naturally, the doctor must remove pathogenic Gi that cause bad circulation for healing by means of Sambeop(三法). In my opinion, because the ultimate goal of Jangjahwa(張子和) was circulation of Gihyeol(氣血) by removing pathogenic Gi[邪氣], the concept of Sarnbeop(三法) could be expanded.

Park, Hyun-Kuk ; Kim, Ki-Wook ; Kim, Jung-Ho ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 21, issue 1, 2008, Pages 13~26
Pediatrics in Geumwon(金元) age had fanned peculiar children's etiology, Byeonggihak(病機學) and Byeonjeungnon(辦證論) curative system grounded on medical theory in Geumwonsadaega(金元四大家). Yuwanso(劉完素), who was front-running man in that age, used so many times 'Yanggyeoksan(凉隔散)' or 'Bangpungtongseongsan(防風通聖散)' which have Hanryang(寒凉) disposition for curing children's disease in view of pathology in Yeoldahanso(熱多寒少), which is his special academic thought, after then Judangye(朱丹溪) succeed Yuwanso(劉完素)'s this view of pathology, Yang-eumjahyeol(養陰滋血) developed the one and made it a standing rule to cure children. Also Idongwon(李東垣) grasped that the main cause of disease is starvation because of war. As a result of it, he insisted on theory, internal cause's outbreak of person's illness, Naesangbiwi(內傷脾胃), Baekbyeong-yusaeng(百病由牛). In this view of this principle, he assorted and used following medicine 'Seungma(升麻), Siho(柴胡), Hwanggi' as 'Seungbalyanggi(升發陽氣)' method to cure children, and concentrated on children's spleen and stomach cure with this way. Jangjongjeong(張從政) applied 'Purgation therapy[攻下法]', Hantoha(汗吐下) centered on the theory of exogenous factors[外因說] , which explains that children's disease is Sagichimseup(邪氣侵襲), too. Like this, in Geumwon(金元) age, they had studied very seriously about main cause of children' s disease in two part, an internal cause and an external cause. Also, in pathological part they had approached academically 'Hwayeolchibyeong(火熱致病)' and 'Gigiseunggangsiljo(氣機乘降失調)' from diverse angles.

Park, Si-Deok ; Shin, Sang-Woo ; Park, Jong-Hyun ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 21, issue 1, 2008, Pages 27~42
It is generally called that the Donhwang Manuscript[敦煌本] "Sanghallon(傷寒論)" is all the series of documents relating to the "Sanghallon(傷寒論)", included in one of the testaments, which was, in 1900, originally found in the Janggyeong hole[藏經洞], Makgo cave[莫高庸], Donhwang(敦煌), Gamsuk province[甘肅省]. The consecutive numbers of the Manuscript are S 202 and P 3287, the former is called the "Sanghallon(傷寒論)" A-Manuscript[甲本] and the latter consists of the "Sanghallon(傷寒論)" B-Manuscript[乙本] and the "Sanghallon(傷寒論)" C-Manuscript[丙本]. The Donhwang Manuscript is a type of a hurt book, but not a complete form of a book. As the research conducted, it has been proven that the Donhwang Manuscript "Sanghallon(傷寒論)" has the academic values as mentioned below. First, it is highly valuable to inter-related study and revise the "Sanghallon(傷寒論)". Second, it is one of circumstantial evidences to have various kinds of versions of the "Sanghallon(傷寒論)". Third, its findings somehow wipes out arguments concerning with identifying authors of the "Sanghallon(傷寒論) Sanghanrye(傷寒例)" and the "Sanghallon(傷寒論) Byeonmaekbeop(辦脈法)". Fourth, it has turned out that the existing "Geumgweokhamgyeong" is not a forgery, but one of imparted versions of the "Sanghallon(傷寒論)" In conclusion, it could be acknowledged that the discovery of the Donhwang Manuscript "Sanghallon(傷寒論)" enables to arrange and revise the "Sanghallon(傷寒論)", and it has provided researchers with critical evidences about ascertaining many kinds of different versions of the "Sanghallon(傷寒論)". Moreover, we can also find the great contribution of this findings which could clarify various non-proven arguments within many experts and researchers.

After parturition, woman in childbed's health can grow worse. Because when woman in childbed gives birth, Genital organ can be damaged, and lost a lot of blood, and also consume a lot of physical strengths. So, after parturition, woman in childbed is easy to fall in disease if do not take care in health specially. So after parturition, woman in childbed should be careful in stress, sleep, food etc. This thesis described Postpartum Spasm[痙病], Oppressive Feeling and Dizziness[鬱冒], Constipation[便秘], Abdominal Pain[腹痛], Diarrhea[下利], Annoyance[煩亂] and Vomitting Sickness[嘔逆]. Postpartum Spasm[痙病]'s major symptom is rigided body. This disease corresponds to Tetanus in modem medicine, and bacterial infection is assumed for cause. By Oriental medicine, after parturition, when blood is lacking, if patient takes wind, this disease breaks out. Oppressive Feeling and Dizziness[鬱冒]'s major symptom is dizzy head and gloomy eye. After parturition, when blood is lacking, if patient sweats too much and take cold, this disease breaks out. After parturition, if patient consumes a lot of resins of human body, Constipation[使秘] breaks out. There are four causes to Abdominal pain[腹痛]. First, due to deficiency and cold treats by Danggwisaenggangyangyuktang(當歸牛薑羊肉湯). Second, due to stagnation of Gi(氣) treats by Jisiljakyaksan(枳實芍藥散). Third, due to blood stasis treats by Ha-eohyeoltang(下瘀血湯). Fourth, due to lochiorrhea treats by Daeseunggitang(大承氣湯). After parturition, Annoyance[煩亂] and Vomitting Sickness[嘔逆] due to fever of difficiency treat by Jukpidaehwan(竹皮大丸). After parturition, Febrile diarrhea[熱性下利] treats by Baekduonggagamchoagyotang(白頭翁加甘草阿膠湯). This disease is similar with present Bacillary Dysentery. After parturition, Exteroceptive disease due to taking wind treats by Yangdaltang. Due to wind and fever treats by Jukyeoptang(竹葉湯).
A Theory Model for Explaining Human's Catabolism[異化作用] and Anabolism(同化作用) of Food and Drink[水穀] in Korean Traditional Medicine
Lyu, Jung-Ah ; Jang, Woo-Chang ; Jeong, Chang-Hyun ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 21, issue 1, 2008, Pages 63~78
In Korean Traditional Medicine(K.T.M.)'s theory, there are some important constitutions which constitute the human being. They are Jeong(精), Gi(氣), Sin(神), and Hyeol(血). Jeong(精) is the essential substances which constituting human body and maintaining life's activities. Gi(氣) is the vital energyor functional activities of human body. Sin(神) is a kind of Gi(氣) which is related to mentality, consciousness and thinking. Hyeol(血) is the red fluid circulating through the blood vessels and nourishing the body tissues. When a man is born, he takes Jeong(精) from his father, and Hyeol(血) from his mother. So father' s Jeong(精) and mother' s Hyeol(血) became the source of their children's Jeong(精), Gi(氣), Sin(神), Hyeol(血). But after be borning, man need to make Jeong(精), Gi(氣), Sin(神), Hyeol(血) by himself from Foods and drinks[水穀]. This thesis was written to explain a process or a system how the Foods and drinks[水穀] change to human's Jeong(精), Gi( 氣), Sin(神), Hyeol(血). When the food and drink[水穀] put in human's mouth, Five Bu[五腑] primarily digest and change to food and drink[水穀]'s Essence and nutrients which is similar to chyme or chyle[乳廳]. Secondarily, Five Jang[五臟] make Gi(氣), Jinaek(津液) - the body fluid, Jeong(精), Wigi(衛氣) - the defensive Gi, and Yeonggi(營氣) - the nutrient Gi circulating the Meridians, and Hyeol(血) from that food and drink [水穀]'s Essence and nutrients. And the information of every processing is reflected in urine. 50 the digestion is accomplished at not only Five Bu[五腑] but also five Jang[五臟]. The concept of digestion in this thesis is including both catabolim[異化作用] and anabolism [同化作用]. Samcho(三焦) is the recognition to the process of this digestion - ctabolism and anabolism in three part.
The Comparative Study between the Effect of Herbal Formula in Schoolbook and the Effect deduced from Compositional Herbal Effects
Park, Byoung-Sun ; Kim, Eun-Ha ; Lee, Sun-A ; Lee, Byung-Wook ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 21, issue 1, 2008, Pages 79~92
Objective The analysis method based on the herbal formula's effects is a general tool, in traditional medicine. In effective applications of herbal formula, Korean herbal medicines traditionally used the classification methods based on the curative effects through the various compositions of herbal formulas. However' the effects of herbal formulas were not filed systemically in ancient literatures, and the standards to confirm their effects are not clear. Thus, it is not easy to classify herbal formulas according to the curative effects. Furthermore, there are no standards to estimate the effects of prescriptions frequently directed in clinic. In this study, we aimed to provide the methodology of classifying the curative effects of herbal formulas by calculating the combination of the effect of each compositional herb through the DB systems. Results : By comparing effects of herbal formula with those of compositional herbs, we found that about 25-50% of the herbal effects were included in herbal formula's effects. These results showed that the prospective estimation of herbal formula's effects may be possible through the DB systems filing herbal effects. To enhance the accuracy in explaining the herbal formula's effect, more studies are needed by giving prominence to major effects and by subtracting minor effects.
Study on the Different Effect of Same Taste of Herb;mainly based on "Chuhaisanghannon(注解傷寒論)" by Seongmugi(成無己)
Jo, Hak-Jun ; Kim, Ho-Hyun ; Leem, Kang-Hyun ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 21, issue 1, 2008, Pages 93~110
We got some conclusion about the function of five tastes from individual peculiarity, from "Sanghanjapbyeongnon(傷寒雜病論)" by Sungmoogi, like below. 1. Five tastes[五味] have their general function, but herbs of one tastes, each has special function, we can define it as individual peculiarity 2. For example, sour taste generally make it convergent, astringent. The sourness of Paeoniae Radix Alba[芍藥] can convergent resin, and be help nutrition, but same of Phaseoli Semen[赤小豆] can make him vomit. 3. Bitterness generally make it down, dry, and solid. Scutellariae Radix[黃芩], Coptidis Rhizoma[黃連] can bring down fever of heart and spleen, but Rhei Radix Et Rhizoma[大黃] eliminates solid illness. 4. Sweetness make it strong, harmonic, relax. Sweetness of Glycyrrhizae Radix[甘草] flows into spleen, make it relax the part of beneath heart. Puerariae Radix[葛根] can make scatter the cold on skin. 5. General nature of hot taste is diffusion, sheen, rampancy. Cinnam omi Ramulus[桂技] eliminates the Pung(風) in Wigi(衛氣). same Zingiberis Rhi zoma[乾薑] make inner cold scattered, and warm stomach. 6. Salty make Gi(氣) down, and slacken solidity, salty Natrii Sulfas[芒硝]removes heat of body. But Alismatis Rhizoma[澤瀉] removes needless water. 7. To know peculiarity of each herb, not only one taste but other combined tastes, and areas medical, agricultural, biologic, etc.
Translational Study on 8 Prescriptions of Strengthening GiHyeol[補氣血] and Tranquilization[安神] in the book I of "The Golden Mirror of Medicine [醫宗金鑑].The Elimination and Supplement about Famous Prescription Comments [刪補名醫方論]";Focused on Translation and Comparative Discussion about "The Famous Prescription Comments on Ancient and Modern Times(古今名醫方論)"

Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 21, issue 1, 2008, Pages 111~122
At the book I of "The Golden Mirror of Medicine[醫宗金鑑] The Elimination and Supplement about Famous Prescription Comments[刪補名醫方論]", 22 prescriptions are recorded. At the first part of the book, it mainly described about the prescriptions of invigorating Gi[補氣], which is followed by the prescriptions on enriching blood and nourishing vital essence fluid[補陰血], and the prescriptions on strengthening Gihyeol[補氣血] and tranquilization[安神] are described at the last part of the book. At the current review, the 8 prescriptions of strengthening Gihyeol[補氣血] and tranquilization[安神] of the last part of the book I will be translated, and compared with the similar related comments in the book of "The Famous Prescription Comments on Ancient and Modern Times[古今名醫方論]" to review about the characteristics of formula, prescriptions notes and the relationship of these contents. In terms of formula, the order of prescriptions to strengthen Gihyeol[補氣血] could be listed from the indirectly strengthening prescriptions to the directly strengthening prescriptions. In addition, the list of prescriptions will be sequenced by following the order of weak strengthening prescriptions to the strong strengthening prescriptions. The order of tranquilization prescription must be ordered for the symptoms showing mild psychological symptoms to severe symptoms in terms of severity of symptom, and will be ordered from the prescriptions highly dependent on invigorating Gi[補氣] to the prescriptionless dependent on invigorating Gi[補氣]. In the way of controlling Premier Fire[相火], these prescriptions are ordered from the prescriptions that use indirect methods to the prescriptions that use direct methods Characteristics of the prescription notes could be mentioned that the herbs of invigorating Gi(補氣) is pivotal in strengthening Gihyeol[補氣血] and the sour flavor and pungent flavor acted as negative and positive[陰陽的] when sour flavor and pungent flavor are used to enrich liver, and that sweet flavor could easily indigested to cause abdominal distension. When comparing with the content of "The Famous Prescription Comments on Ancient and Modern Times[古今名醫方論]", it mostly adopted the content as it is, but differentiation of the formula and addition of 2 new prescriptions with their explanation in the middle of the book could be considered to be creative aspect that helped the convenience of readers.
A Study on the Construction of DB Systems for the Classifications of Herbal Formulas with Similar Composition;focused on "Dong-uibogam" and "Bangjehag"
Kim, Jeung-Hun ; Lee, Byung-Wook ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 21, issue 1, 2008, Pages 123~141
Objective Classification of herbal formulas through the analysis of compositional herb's is a suitable method in the aspects of the effective applications of herbal formulas. However, these classification methods have some problems in dealing with lots of herbal formulas because the estimations of herbal formula's effects are dependent upon one's memory. In this study, we aimed to establish the effective methodology to elicit the classified herbal formula's chart by introducing the DB systems without interfering with non-standard terms. Method : We entered the herbs informations of the composition of herbal formulas into database, made an alias tables of corresponding herbs, and achieved standardization of herb's informations. Using these databases, we made the classified herbal formula's chart according to the presence and the treatment informations of herbs. Results By analyzing the herbal formula into the set of compositional herbal elements, we could systemically express the parents and children herbal formula at once according to search terms. We provided the advanced searching tools entering the name of herbal formula and compositional herb together. Through these searching methods, it is facilitated to grasp the classified herbal formula's chart according to the addition and reduction of compositional herbs in Dong-uibogam(東醫寶鑑) and Bangjehak(方劑學)

A Study of Juhakhae(周學海)'s Three Eum and Three Yang[三陰三陽] Field Theory
Jang, Woo-Chang ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 21, issue 1, 2008, Pages 153~162
Three Eum and Three Yang[三陰三陽] is a way of studying the changing of nature from a Eum(陰) and Yang(陽) point of view, Juhakhae(周學海) divides this into two dimensions. The first is the concept of dividing the exterior part of the body excluding the organ into 6 divisions as Eumyang(陰陽) of front and rear characteristic. The second is the concept of dividing the systematic bio-activity of the central organ into another 6 dimensions. The former concept is illustrated in the body as a certain meridian controlling a certain field of the body, while the latter is presented as a certain organ performing an activity of Gi(氣). Three Eum and Three Yang[三陰三陽] is not based on fixed substances. but it is a thought process model of observing the structural-functional changes of the body in disease state. Therefore, by understanding Three Eum and Three Yang[三陰三陽] of field and activity of Gi(氣) respectively and comprehensively putting these into practice, we will be able to approach the essence of the disease state in a more precise manner.
A Study on "Uibanghappyeon(醫方合編)"
Jeong, Chang-Hyun ; Kim, Yong-Joo ; Jang, Woo-Chang ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 21, issue 1, 2008, Pages 163~173
"Uibanghappyeon(醫方合編)" is a large-scale medical formulary with "Samuiilheombang(三意一驗方)" and "Chon-gagugeupbang(村家救急方)" at its core, combined with personal experience of the compiler and various pieces of fragmentary knowledge. This book was brought into existence through the cumulation of numerous folk medicinal remedies and cannot be considered a work of professional expertise. The historic worth of this book in medicine can be found in the fact that it has kept the tradition of empirical medicine based on first sia alive, in fusing the practice of late Joseon(朝鮮) empirical prescriptions, as can be seen in "Samuiilheombang(三意一驗方)", and the practice of empirical medicine, as can be seen in "Chon-gagugeupbang(村家救急方)", together.
A Study on Eum-Fire[陰火] Theory of Idongwon(李東垣)
Bang, Jung-Kyun ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 21, issue 1, 2008, Pages 175~181
As the representative medical scholar at the time of Geumwon(金元) Dynasty, Idongwon(李東垣) deepened and developed the meaning of the diseases on internal injuries. He also proposed the primordial Gi[原氣] and Eum-Fire[陰火] theory in the physiology and pathology. Idongwon(李東垣) defined the pathological metabolism of internal injuries as the hyperactivity against Eum-Fire[陰火] due to the lack of primordial Gi[原氣不足], and he suggested the deficiency of Gi[氣虛] in the Spleen and Stomach and the surge of seven modes of emotion as the causes of the Eum-Fire[陰火] hyperactivity. Additionally, he established the therapy principles of eliminating Heat with Sweet and Warm drug[溫熱藥] and raising yang and spreading fire[升陽散火] based upon the above mentioned pathological metabolism. The Eum-Fire[陰火] that was suggested by Idongwon(李東垣) indicates the Heat syndrome[熱證] developed by internal causes[內因], and the principle reason is the consumption of the Spleen and Stomach Therefore, it is important to recuperate the function of Spleen and Stomach in treating the disease symptoms caused by Eum-Fire[陰火], and the therapies of eliminating Heat with Sweet and Warm drug [溫熱藥] and raising yang and spreading fire[升陽散火] are the corresponding ones. However, since vital Essence could be lacked due to the consumption of Spleen and Stomach, the therapy of replenishing Eum has to be considered. Additionally, the damp removal therapeutic method also has to be considered since Damp could be stagnated by the loss of function in Spleen and Stomach. In other way, Eum-Fire[陰火] developed by the consumption of Spleen and Stomach is somewhat similar aspect to the premier Fire[相火] that is developed by the lack of Eum[陰虛]. But complications could be developed if therapies of enriching the Eum[滋陰] to suppress Fire and replenishing Eum[補陰] are mainly used to control the symptoms developed by the lack of Eum[陰虛]. Namely, the drugs used to replenish Eum[補陰] mostly have the heavy and turbid properties, which contrarily have the possibility to debilitate the functions of Spleen and Stomach by causing Dampness within a body. So, care must be made in their use.
A Translation Study on the First Volume of "Uihakdokseogi (醫學讀書記)"(I)
Im, E-Bin ; Bang, Jung-Kyun ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 21, issue 1, 2008, Pages 183~203
"Uihakdokseogi(醫學讀書記)" is a casual work which mentions Ujaekyeong(尤在涇)'s thoughts on various problems found through extensive studying or in practice. The book does not focus on a single topic, thus the spectrum of the work is broad and is filled with problems which would interest most medical professionals. The major contents of the first volume of "Uihakdokseogi(醫學讀書記)" include differences of view on health preservation, the Five Circuit Phases[五運] and Six Atmospheric Influences[六氣], diseases, and the "Naegyeong(內經)", mentions on errors in transcription , and the gap between certain contents in "Yeongchu(靈樞)" and "Somun(素問)". U[尤在涇] asserts that Eum and Yang(陰陽) in a human should be in harmony as is the Gi(氣) of the sky and earth[天地] is, and that one should live according to the Gi(氣) of the four seasons to live a healthy life. He does not vary largely from the context of other writers on the matter of the Five Circuit Phases [五運] and Six Atmospheric Influences[六氣], and focuses on the concepts of predominant Gi[主氣], guest Gi[客氣], corresponding years[天符] , correlating years[歲會], and Taeeul corresponding years[太乙天符]. He mentions causes, symptoms, and treatments of various diseases such as cough due to asthenia of the viscera, stagnation of Yang(陽), stagnation of Eum(陰), abscess of the stomach, hard abscess of the intestines, upper emaciation, edema of the limbs, inability to raise the limbs, broken thigh, turbid fluid, inversion of Gi(氣) flow, sudden onset of fainting with cold extremities, diarrhea due to disorder of Gi(氣), and malaria. U[尤在涇] also points out faults of "Classic of Acupuncture and Moxibustion[甲乙經]" in the understanding of "Naegyeong(內經)".
A Study of Construction and Edition on "Yumunsachin(儒門事親)"
Kim, Ki-Wook ; Park, Hyun-Kuk ; Seo, Ji-Young ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 21, issue 1, 2008, Pages 205~222
"Yumunsachin(儒門事親)" is a very important work that contains everything of Jangjahwa(張子和)'s medical thought. The book was made into present form after the process of change several times. These days the printed book is consist of 10 classes and 15 volumes that combine several books. Original "Yumunsachin(儒門事親)" was the name of volume 1, 2, 3, "Chibyeongbaekbang(治病百法)" volume4, 5, "Siphyeongsamnyo(十形三標)" volume 6, 7, 8, "Japgigumun(雜記九門)" volume 9, "Chwalyodo(撮要圖)" volume 10, "Chibyeongbaekbang(治病雜論)" volume 11, "Sambeop-yukmun(三法六門)" volume 12, "Samsoron(三消論)" volume 13, "Chibeoppillyo(治法心要)" volume 14, and "Sinhyomyeongbang(神效名方)" volume 15. "Yumunsachin(儒門事親)" is a collection of a few books so, the literary style isn't uniform. The unconformity show that "Yumunsachin(儒門事親)" was not written by one person. The problem who is the writer of each volume remains controversial. But most scholars recognize that volume 1, 2, 3, original "Yumunsachin(儒門事親)" and was written by Jangjahwa(張子和), embellished by Majigi(麻知幾). Also, it is recognized that "Samsoron(三消論)" was collected by Majigi(麻知幾) and inserted by posterity, and that Sangjungmyeong(常仲明) and Nangi(欒企) who were Jang[張子和]'s disciples participated in compilation of "Yumunsachin(儒門事親)". Therefore, it is sure that the contents of the book express Jangjahwa(張子和)'s medical thought.
The Consideration about Follows Soeum Meridian in "Somun(素問).Golgongron(骨空論)"
Jeong, Chang-Hyun ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 21, issue 1, 2008, Pages 223~234
In this thesis, we discuss on three theories about abdominal line of Penetration Meridian[衝脈] and focused on the text of several related chapters of "Naegyeong(內經)". Therefore, we can get the conclusion as follows. Penetration Meridian[衝脈] is the same root of the Foot Soeum Meridian[定少陰經; KI, Kidney Meridian] and its circulation course is also at one with the Foot Soeum Meridian[足少陰經]. "Naegyeong" presents two kinds of channel of Penetration Meridian at the trunk portion-abdominal and dorsal channels. And their inter-relationship would be described as relationship between the roots[本] and the manifestation[標] or meridian[line] and acupoint[point].
A Study on Dongwon(東垣)'s Internal Injury Syndrome in the Aspect of the Study on Epidemic Febrile Disease
Yang, Kwang-Yeol ; Baik, You-Sang ; Jang, Woo-Chang ; Jeong, Chang-Hyun ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 21, issue 1, 2008, Pages 235~255
Byeollyangchamsa has been a key factor in formation of Dongwon(東垣)'s theory on internal injuries. The majority regarded Byeollyangchamsa as just epidemic disease, while Dongwon(東垣) regarded it as internal injuries by improper diet and overstrain. However, an analysis of Dongwon(東垣)'s internal injury syndrome revealed that it was a kind of external affections caused by damp-heat. In particular, heat rather than dampness have developed as the disease got worse. Therefore It can be regarded as the serious syndrome to show the impairment of Gi(氣), blood, fluids and humors for pathogenic fire.

Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 21, issue 1, 2008, Pages 257~283
Western Medicine had been taking the occurrence of a disease as a physical matter and had tried to step forward from this angle till the late twentieth.
