Chuneunja(天隱子) was publication that described the life nurturing(養生) of Taoism, consisted of 8 chapters. It was comparative primary writing and contained important contents in related to the life nurturing of Taoism. It belonged to the life nurturing of Taoism that influenced by Confucianism and Buddhism. It emphasized on the practical and rational thought that mastered morality by performing gradually. It showed the concrete asceticism method like to the basic regimen training of Taoism, for example mind control(調心), flesh control(調身), breath control(調息), conduction exercise(導引), raping teeth (叩齒法) and swallowing saliva(嚥津法). Oriental traditional regimen focused on realizing balanced human character by practicing human mind and body. It may show the direction to modern person that are troubled with harmful effect of modern civilization. If we throw away superstitious and unreal part in the traditional regimen and apply regimen in one's life, we may consider that regimen contribute to human health. Therefore, we require clear understanding for the classic data inherited from predecessors.

Treatise on the Pathogenesis and Manifestations of All Diseases(諸病源候論)was written by Chao Yuanfang that was most active during the Sui Dynasty at A.D. 610. It classified clinical medicine by some departments of internal medicine, surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, and otorhinolaryngology and within each specific department, categorizes etiology and pathology according to characteristics of various diseases. It was the total disease classification book that based on the bibles of the Oriental medicine, (Huangdi''s) Internal Classic(黃帝內經), Classic of Difficult Issues(難經) and Treatise on Cold Damage and Miscellaneous Diseases(傷寒雜病論), A-B Classic of Acupuncture and Moxibustion(鍼灸甲乙經), Essential Prescriptions Worth a Thousand Gold for Emergencies(備急千金要方) and Medical Secrets of an Official(外臺秘要). It was arranged tussive causes, classes, diagnosis, prognosis and stretching for treatment by Volume 13, all symptoms of tussiculation. Dialectic part was divided into cough(咳嗽), cough with dyspnea(咳逆上氣), cough with pus and blood(咳嗽吐膿血), cough with duck crying sound(?嗽), sudden cough(暴氣咳嗽), cough with dyspnea(咳逆), cough with dyspnea and vomiting(咳逆上氣嘔吐). Disease situation part was divided into the new cough(新咳) and old cough(舊咳), deficiency syndrome(虛證) and excess syndrome(實證), visceral cough(藏府咳), etc. Out of these, cough with counterflow(咳嗽上氣), cough with dyspnea(咳逆上氣), cough with dyspnea and vomiting(咳逆上氣嘔吐), cough with shortness of breath(咳逆短氣) have a close connection with dyspnea(上氣), counterflow of qi(逆氣), dyspnea and vomiting(上氣嘔吐) and shortness of breath(短氣) in the Pathogenesis and Manifestations of All qi(氣病諸候) of vol 13. So two parts may be refer to each other. However, the content on the original book has been addition and subtraction on the original context along with many reprints. Therefore, this paper, with regard to the prints of former editions, tried to help in better comprehension of the original context through readings and Korean translation.

Contemporary topic of the culture is turning to the Nature. In this situation, The Paradigms of realization about Human body and medical science are changing. The new interpretation of the value of Health is another method of recovering the Nature. Oriental medicine has mainly dealt with health preserving idealogy in origin, and pursued it. Get out of the curing medicine, the health preserving idealogy which aims to live up to one's lifespan has been becoming the main idea of Oriental medicine. In this respect, we can extract insperation from the concept of Meebyung and preventive treatments which came from the ideas of preventive medicine in Oriental medicine. Among the researches of Meebyung in Oriental medical classics and in Oriental tri-countries, we grasped and analyzed the trends of them. In connection with the most fundamental project in Meebyung study which is to set up the concept of Meebyung, we inspected the standards which can categorize and diagnose Meebyung. In contrast with 'Ibyeong', Meebyung in Oriental medical classics can be attained from living in harmony with the Nature, four seasons, Eum-and-Yang and the Five Phases. However the classification of Meebyung, Yogbyeong, Ibyeong in medical classics made foundation of post preventive medicine. From the various studies we can find as follws. Promting national project in Meebyung, China is trying to reestablish classifications of Meebyung, as Japanese Meebyung scholars are focusing on quantitative methods. Although there are not enough research products, Korea must absorb the products of such other countries, as to categorize Meebyung through the pattern identification system of Oriental medicine, and achieve our goal of promotion of health.

By grouping freshly the virtue terms used in herbal medicine, we are apt to establish the position coordinates of concepts and raise the level of the herbal virtue research in future. As the terms related to the herbal virtue used in herbal medicine are used with the virtue terms mingled with the chief treatable disease terms, it's hard to use the herbal virtue data only. And though the virtues terms imply many data like medical act data or medical operation data, we can't use them fully. We sort the terms related to the herbal virtue into the virtue terms and the chief treatable disease terms and acquire many data like medical act data or medical operation data and group the data by same attribute. At this time in the process of classification we establish sort standards inductively, put relations between the attributes in order, out of this result we grasp the actual conditions of the virtue terms used now, and show useful data for herbal virtue research in future. We got the chief treatable disease terms from the ones related to the herbal virtue, acquired a lot of data from the virtue terms and grouped the data by the same attribute. We established a proper standard inductively in the process of classification, put the relations between the attributes in order, grasped the actual conditions of the virtue terms in use at the moment out of the result of the classification and presented the applicable data for the herbal virtue research in future.
A combination of the Chon-gu/Inyeong Pulse Comparison Diagnosis and the Five Viscera Pulse
Jeong, Chang-Hyun ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 23, issue 5, 2010, Pages 51~54
, there has been various methods in pulse diagnosis. The Chon-gu(寸口)/Inyeong(人迎) Pulse Comparison Diagnosis which is dealt with in many chapters of the
, has not been as widely applied as the Chon-gu Pulse Diagnosis due to several limitations. In this paper, we will review these limitations and suggest an alternative method. In the Chon-gu/Inyeong Pulse Comparison Diagnosis, we compare the Chon-gu Pulse and the Inyeong Pulse to see which is larger than the other by times, and diagnose illness of the 12 Meridian Pulse. It is fairly clear which is larger than the other, but to determine by how much accurately is quite difficult to say. However if we combine the Five Viscera Pulse in application, it becomes far more easier to determine which viscera and bowel is ill. First, study the pulse of the Chon-gu and In-yeong, then determine the Viscera Pulse. Next, determine the larger pulse between the Chon-gu and In-yeong pulse.
A Study on the classification of materia medica in medicinal part of Treasured Mirror of Eastern Medicine("東醫寶鑑" "湯液篇")

Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 23, issue 5, 2010, Pages 55~66
The medicinal part of Treasured Mirror of Eastern Medicine("東醫寶鑑" "湯液編") is based on Classified Emergency Materia Medica("證類本草"), Compendium of Prescriptions from the Countryside("鄕藥集成方"). But it distinguished materia medica of countryside(鄕藥) from materia medica of China(唐藥) and properly selected the sentences of them by actual medical circumstances in Korean peninsula. Especially upon assortment of medical herbs, the medicinal part of Treasured Mirror of Eastern Medicine added the part of Water, Earth, Metal, and divided the part of Fish & Bug, Jade & Stone into Fish, Bug, Jade, Stone part. Moreover, it abolished the three grade classification adopted in Classified Emergency Materia Medica, Compendium of Prescriptions from the Countryside and attempted a new approach on itemization; 'representative herb' and 'secondary herb'. Hence, medicinal part of Treasured Mirror of Eastern Medicine should be evaluated as the 'settling in of Chinese medicine with autonomous interpretation, other than 'the fusion of prescriptions from countryside and Chinese medicine.

Globalization describes a process by which regional cultures have become integrated through a global network of communication. In order to communicate among different cultural groups, standardization of terminology is one of the most important steps among its processes. In the field of oriental medicine, there have been continuous efforts to communicate through various methods. Translation of oriental medical classics is one of the significant approaches in terms of transmitting medical theories and clinical experiences of thousands of years to the people of different cultural backgrounds. However, previous translation studies have had difficulties in delivering its underlying principles and assumptions due to lack of standardization of terminology. "WHO International Standard Terminologies on Traditional Medicine in the Western Pacific Region(WHO-IST)" is the outcome of developing standard terminologies on oriental medicine based on mutual agreement of researchers of Korea, China and Japan. As a movement to find more efficient methodology for communication between heterogeneous communities, this study aims to translate parts of "Classic of difficult issues(難經)" into English adopting "WHO-IST" hoping to set a model of translation study.

Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 23, issue 5, 2010, Pages 83~94
"Beijijiufa" is a book written by Wenrenqinian, 1226, Song dynasty. It provides moxibustion on acute disease. However, the book is composed with quotations by other authors such as Gehong, Zhenquan, Sunzhenren, Hwangdi Qibo and others. Sunzhenren is a dominant author out of them by quotations. 14 diseases out of 22 in acute disease, is quoted in "Qianjinfang" of Sunzhenren. I will compare texts of "Beijijiufa" with "Qianjinfang" and try to figure out differences between them just like text itself, methods of treatment, moxibution point, number of points, case of male or female and so on. As a result, comparing with "Qianjinfang", "Beijijiufa" has somehow new opinions about acute disease by moxibution in methods of treatment, moxibution point, number of points, case of male or female etc., even if it referred "Qianjinfang".
A Study on names of face part related with pathways of meridians in "Yeongchoo.Kyeongmaek"
Jung, Hyun-Jong ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 23, issue 5, 2010, Pages 95~101
This article is about diverse meanings, directions and related parts on pathways of meridians on face mentioned in "Yeongchoo Kyeongmaek". In this article, I focus on finding right positions of pathways and right names of what is related with pathways. In methods, I found out names of face part related with pathways of meridians in "Kyeongmaek" and compared with other names. As a result, I suggest that we have to make a fine definition about erms describing pathways of meridians instead of meridian points and broad names on face.
Study on the definitions of pulses of "Maekgyeol(脈訣)" by comparison of "Maekgyung(脈經)" and "Maekgyeol(脈訣)" and "Maekgyeolganoh(脈訣刊誤)"

Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 23, issue 5, 2010, Pages 103~116
"Maekgyung(脈經)" was the first book for diagnostic method in traditional Chinese medicine history, but it couldn't be spreaded widely. After that, "Maekgyeol(脈訣)" was widely spreaded for centuries, because it was more concise and easier to memorize than "Maekgyung". But as time went by, people got to know that "Maekgyeol" had many errors. After "Maekgyeolganoh(脈訣刊誤)" corrected the errors of "Maekgyeol", "Maekgyeol" came to lose its reputation and people began to study "Binhomaekhak(瀕湖脈學)" instead of "Maekgyeol". We got to wonder why "Maekgyeol" was criticized by many people, so we decided to compare the definitions of pulses(脈象) in "Maekgyung" and "Maekgyeol" and "Maekgyeolganoh". Both "Maekgyung" and "Maekgyeol" have 24 kinds of pulses, but 22 kinds are in common. In 22 kinds of pulses, only 2 kinds of definitions are similar and the others are different. And "Maekgyeolganoh" criticized errors of "Maekgyeol" and corrected the definitions by that of "Maekgyung". In conclusion, we come to know that "Maekgyeol" was rejected by people because it defined most of pulses different from "Maekgyung".

Baik, You-Sang ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 23, issue 5, 2010, Pages 123~132
In this paper, on the assumption that the dispute about the identity of Oriental Medicine(OM) will finally act as an developmental element of Oriental Medicine otherwise total Korean Medicine, at first we think about what are he meaning of identity and it's essential elements, and search how to establish the standard of the identity of Oriental Medicine. From this working, the direction of the research in the Oriental Medical Classics that is one of the detail field in OM will be drawn out. The identity of Oriental Medicine must be decided according to what is the mission or existence value contributing for Korean Society, not to the form of materiality or immateriality. The core of the identity of Oriental Medical Classics is relevant to being a help to other research fields through reinterpreting the Classics. And the most important issue of research are the analysis of thinking pattern In OM, and systematization of OM knowledge and information.
