Complementary Acupuncture Techniques in "Yihapjinsaron of Somun(素問.離合眞邪論)"
Jo, Hak-Jun ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 24, issue 6, 2011, Pages 1~13
Objective : I tried to turn out the fact that acupuncture treatment was originated from the sentences in "Yihapjinsaron of Somun(素問 離合眞邪論)". Method : I analyze the sentences in "Yihapjinsaron of Somun(素問 離合眞邪論)" by comparing the ponies on it and acupuncture books, Yi Ceon(李梴)'s "Medical beginner's book(醫學入門)". Conclusion : Making this research, I discovered Du Taesa(竇太師) primarily called it '14 finger strengthing-eliminating treatment methods(手指補瀉法)' in his book, "Acupuncture Guidance(鍼灸指南)" and he made full use of it in acupuncture clinic. Seo Bong(徐鳳) & Go Mu(高武) cited the 14 methods in their works, "Acupuncture Completement(鍼灸大全)" & "Acupuncture Essence(鍼灸節要聚英)", but they did not state their own views that this 14 methods ware derived from "Somun(素問)". Conclusion : I knew great acupuncture specialists and Yi Ceon(李梴) finally regarded the sentences in "Somun(素問)" as basic & complementary acupuncture techniques of "Acupuncture Guidance(鍼灸指南)" in their works. They hoped to let many acupuncture clinicians use the finger strengthing-eliminating treatment methods more often.
The understanding of Gwan-Gyeok in "Nangyeong"
Jang, Woo-Chang ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 24, issue 6, 2011, Pages 15~28
Gwan-Gyeok(關格) is one of the dangerous conditions that can lead to death and is considered important in clinical practice. However its true concept is unclear and arguments on the subject have been diverse over generations. This kind of confusion is largely due to an insufficient understanding of the study results on Nangyeong(難經). In Nangyeong, Gwan-Gyeok is divided into 'in bowels(在腑)' and 'in viscera(在臟) and distinction is made between 'damaged by heat(傷熱)' and 'damaged by dampness(傷濕) thus establishing a broad outline of differentiation of syndrome(辨證). Moreover, the clinical progress is systematically divided into 3 stages thus providing a very useful viewpoint on diagnostics. A sharp perspective on the pathogenesis is also shown by emphasizing the kidney and Myeongmun(命門) through the comparison between cheok pulse(尺) and chon pulse(寸). This point of view in Nangyeong is truly proposing a permanent standard on the understanding of Gwan-Gyeok. Therefore it is the author's hope that this study will work as a start to look back on the flow of the research on Gwan-Gyeok which has been rather confusing since Sanghallon(傷寒論).
A study on Symptom of Blood Stasis in "Geumgweyoryak(金匱要略)" "Gyeonggyetonyukhahyeolhyungmaneohyeolbyeongmaekjeungbyeongchi(驚悸吐衄下血胸滿瘀血病脈證幷治)"
Baik, You-Sang ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 24, issue 6, 2011, Pages 29~38
The concept of Blood Stasis had been cognized merely as a sign in disorder of blood circulation since "Huangjenaegyeong(黃帝內經)" until "Sanhanron(傷寒論)" and "Geumgweyoryak(金匱要略)" started to describe, explain and apply independent symptom of blood stasis to practice. In this article, establishing the estimate feature of symptom of blood stasis in "Geumgweyoryak(金匱要略)" is the main subject, in sequence the pathological mechanism and targets of prescriptions suggested in "Geumgweyoryak(金匱要略)" are analyzed and restructured. In conclusion, the symptom of blood stasis in "Geumgweyoryak(金匱要略)" is caused not only from disorder of blood circulation but also from metal depression, therefore there are always appearances of excessive and deficient status simultaneously, in the process of symptom. The research on concept of blood stasis from the literatures in early ages will be the basis of future studies about disease of circulation in Korean Traditional Medicine.
The Study for Equilibrium of Emotions by Oriental Medicine Music Therapy
Lee, Seung-Hyun ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 24, issue 6, 2011, Pages 39~47
The study is a new way of treating and preventing various diseases and promoting health by means of music specially picked and designed to produce Qi fitting to an individual person in the areas of the structure of human body, physiological function, pathological change, diagnosis and treatment. Oriental medicine music therapy is based on the concept and methodology of the Oriental Medicine, actually meaning the Oriental Medicine, that is specialized in controlling the human biological energy, the Qi, and in coordinating human body and mind which are easy to be unbalanced. The seven emotions affect the change of Qi. The weakness and strength of seven emotions can induce constraint of Qi, the seven emotions music therapy and relieving constraint music therapy can be used in this case.
A Study on Mingmen(命門) theory in the light of Zhijue(知覺)
Eun, Seok-Min ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 24, issue 6, 2011, Pages 49~61
The concept of Mingmen(命門) was originated from "Neijing(內經)" and "Nanjing(難經)", respectively meaning eye in "Neijing" and right kidney in "Nanjing". But the Mingmen theory had been developed on the basis of the concept of Mingmen in "Nanjing" thereafter, and it had been influenced by the Taoist alchemy in the process of explaining the relation between the concept of Xianghuo(相火) and Yuanqi(元氣). Out of this the Mingmen theory had been changed as a thing that comprises newly the concept of Huo(火), and consequentially the dispute about the arrangement between Mingmen and Xin(心) had been consistently progressed, because Xin is the center of Huo. And on the other hand, because Xin is also the center of mind, the influence of the state of Xin which is projected to Mingmen had also been discussed. Based on the facts like this, this study will discuss the possibility of the extension of the concept about the function of Mingmen. That is, this study will add up the concept of Mingmen in "Neijing" to the Mingmen theory so far, will add up the concept of Zhijue(知覺) to the Mingmen theory. The concept of Zhijue had been originated from the Neo-Confucianism in Song dynasty, and this study thinks, in the light of the concept of Zhijue, the concept of Mingmen could be viewed from a new perspective, that is, from a view of mind.

Choi, Cheol-Han ; Kim, Hyeon-Dong ; Im, E-Bin ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 24, issue 6, 2011, Pages 63~90
Safflower is a world-wide plant for multiple uses. flower of safflower is honghwa(紅花) which has been used for heart disease in oriental medicine. but its seed was not used in oriental medicine. after the publication of "Shinyak(神藥)" - the late 1980s, its seed(紅花子, hongwhassi) was known as good for bone fracture, osteoporosis and menopausal disorders. so many researchers studied hongwhassi and delivered lots of papers. the concern of each paper is different. this paper is a review paper. this paper studied documentary records about hongwhassi, and analyzed hongwhassi research trend. the trend consists of cultivation, ingredient analysis, osteoporosis, atherosclerosis, periodontal ligament and phytoestrogen. many papers lack of information about plant origin. so this paper supplements the standard form of plant origin(when sowing, where grow up, which direction, what kind etc).

Park, Hyun-Ae ; Jeong, Chang-Hyun ; Jang, Woo-Chang ; Baik, You-Sang ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 24, issue 6, 2011, Pages 91~100
The four chapters of "Gwanja(管子)" explains the concepts of Do(道), Deok(德), Junggi(精氣) philosophically. Because it contains thoughts about control of Mind(心), it has been considered as one of the useful references of ancient chinese philosophy. In this respect, we can think about the connections between the four chapters of "Gwanja(管子)" and Oriental medicine in philosophical perspectives. In the investigating about Oriental medical philosophy in this study, the meaning of mind(心) is classified from various angles, for example, political, self-improvemental, and physiological. Espesially the physiological meaning of mind(心) may receive attention and meaningful consideration of Oriental medicine.

Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 24, issue 6, 2011, Pages 101~110
There are not a few cases in Oriental medicine where a different prescription should be given to some of the patients whose symptoms are similar to each other. In other words, there might happen a misdiagnosis due to an extremely delicate difference in symptoms of the same diseases, causing a patient's condition to get worse or to be even on the brink of death. In such a context, the records in "WooJam JabJeo(愚岑雜著)" are worthwhile to do in-depth research on. Jang-Taegyung described his first-hand experience in major medical treatment very vivaciously during his ages between 25 and 42. Particularly, most of the prescriptions recorded in this book include not only his empirical prescriptions on the patients who life was almost on the brink of death but it also so plentifully contained the process of overcoming the side effect caused by other clinics' misdiagnosis; thus, that this book is drawing attention in that it could be indispensable materials not only in the research on medical history but also for clinical treatment. Particularly, as regards two cases of insanity, this book mentions the reason for using totally different prescription on one case from the other case even though the two cases had a similar symptom, through which we can acquire somewhat concrete experience in curing scenes though indirectly during the period of the Joseon Dynasty. We were able to get the result from the analysis of the two cases of insanity as follows: 1. WooJam, in treating the two cases of insanity due to the severe exacerbation of yang energy, managed to treat the one case by inducing a bowel movement and the other case by inducing urination. Such a different treatment seems to be greatly attributable to the constitutional factor of the two patients. Such an Oriental-medicine-based method of diagnosis and prescription as WooJam's is rarely found in Western medicine-i.e., that's why more thorough research on Oriental medicine is deeply required. 2. In case of the second patient, the patient arrived at insanity due to another clinic's treatment on perspiration on the patient with severe mouth thirst. This medical story once again highlights the importance of a diagnosis in today's Oriental medicine and at the same time it's a good example showing how big the side effect caused by the abuse of medicinal herbs is. The second patient's body fluids ran dry and finally his yang energy got exacerbated all the more due to the treatment by perspiration.
Study on the grammatical characteristics and fallacy of translation in the sentences of Donguibogam by Heo Jun - Focused on Tangaekpean(湯液篇) in Donguibogam "東醫寶鑑" -
Kim, Yong-Han ; Kim, Eun-Ha ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 24, issue 6, 2011, Pages 111~124
The objectives of this study are to look into the grammatical characteristics and find misinterpretations on the translation books. 1. Sentences characteristics 1) Lots of ellipses of grammatical parts can be found such as conjunction, postposition, particle, Coverb, and focus on the parts which has practical meaning such as noun, pronoun, verb, adjective in the sentences. 2) Some predicates are skipped in the later phrases which has contradictive concepts against them of former phrases. 3) Pure Korean word order is exposed especially in complement. 2. Translation fallacy 1) There is fallacy in the sentences omitted paratactic conjunction as follows (1) mistranslation based on the wrong concept of the context between equal relation and subordinate relation. (2) failure on setting up the period, (3) misunderstanding equal relation as cause relation. 2) Some singular phrases, which are condition relation, were analyzed as plural phrases in the sentences omitted connection conjunction. 3) Ellipses of postposition obstruct understanding the difference between modifier and modificand in some sentences. 4) Some cause relation phrases were translated as equality relation due to lack of recognition of ellipsis of coverbs.

A study on The Diagnosis and Treatment Using The Theory of Five Organs in "Soayakjeungjikgyeol(小兒藥證直訣)"
Baik, You-Sang ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 24, issue 6, 2011, Pages 145~167
"Soayakjeungjikgyeol(小兒藥證直訣)" written by Jeon Uel(錢乙, 1032-1113) in the Song dynasty, is the most old and well know specialty publication of pediatrics in Easter Traditional Medicine. "Soayakjeungjikgyeol(小兒藥證直訣)" made a big influence not only on the development of pediatrics in later traditional medicine through the explanations of physiological and pathological knowledge and experiences, but also on application of many effective prescriptions which have been used in many clinics until now days. One of the most important meaning which "Soayakjeungjikgyeol(小兒藥證直訣)" has, is that it emphasized on the diagnosis and treatment using the theory of five organs(五臟辨證), and applied it to clinical medicine effectively. In othe words, through application of the theory of five organs in "Hwangjenargyeong(黃帝內經)" to practical field, Jeon Uel(錢乙) played role of a ring connecting with studies of herbal medicine in the school of Yeoksu(易水), and the development of the theory of five organs of the four prominent doctors(金元四大家) in the Jin(金) and Yuan(元) dynasty. In this article, also it is investigated that how the theory of interaction among five phases(五行), can be applied to treatment of pediatrics through analysis of related texts in "Soayakjeungjikgyeol(小兒藥證直訣)". This studies would be useful to understanding the history and properties of the theory of five organs.

Yi, Yeong-Seok ; Ha, Hong-Ki ; Kim, Ki-Wook ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 24, issue 6, 2011, Pages 169~186
1. In Sui, Tang and Five Dynasty, a discourse related to sleep was published in various big Fang Shu(方書)'s that later became a valuable historical data. Notably, the importance of good sleep began to be properly discussed in "Bei Ji Qian Jin Yao Fang(備急千金要方)" of 'Sun Si Miao(孫思邈)', etc. 2. During Two Song era, achievements in the previous eras were accepted and diseases related to sleep were explored in more details. 3. In Jin and Yuan(金元) era, Liu He Jian(劉河間), in "Su Wen Xuan Ji Yuan Bing Shi(素問玄機原病式)", recognized 'anger' as the cause for various sleep disorders and Li Dong Yuan(李東垣), in "Pi Wei Lun(脾胃論)", believed 'lethargy' and 'Shi Hou Ji Hun Mao Yu Shui(食後卽昏冒欲睡)' are related to narcolepsy linked with stomach. Zhang Cong Zheng(張從正) observed 'insomnia' as an isolated disease whereas Zhu Dan Xi(朱丹溪), in "Ge Zhi Yu Lun(格致餘論)" argued about somnambulism based on the relationship between Xiang Huo(相火) and Xin huo(心火).
A Study on "Jipseong" quotated in "Hyangyakjipseongbang" - Based on the traditional medical classic -
Song, Ji-Chung ; Keum, Kyung-Soo ; Eom, Dong-Myung ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 24, issue 6, 2011, Pages 187~193
Objective : In "Hyangyakjipseongbang" there are quotation remark as "Jipseong", that means "Hyangyakjipseongbang" because this is self-quotation. The contents of "Jipseong" that "Hyangyakjipseongbang" mentioned are in "Yifangjicheng". So "Jipseong" means abbreviation of "Yifangjicheng" and "Jipseong" should be "Jicheng". Method : We will try to do bibliographical methods on "Jicheng" and the books related to "Jicheng" through "Isekigo", "Zhongyiyijidacidian" and "Zhongguoyijitongkao". Result : "Yifangjicheng" is not handed down but the contents of that are in "Yifangdacheng". There are three differnt types(authors) of "Yifangdacheng". One of "Yifangdacheng" was enlarged to "Yifangdacheng". In "Euibangyoochui" there are several qutations such as "Yifangdacheng", "Yishudadian", "Nanbeijingxianfang", "Yongleilingfang" ralated to "Yifangjicheng". Conclusion : "Jipseong" mean "Yifangjicheng" instead of "Hyangyakjipseongbang" and there are some kinds of books related to the similar contents of "Jicheng".
