"Yixuerumen" is a comprehensive medical text published in the Ming-dynasty by Li Chan(李梴). In this text, Sanghan(傷寒, cold damage) is categorized among external contraction(外感) with much emphasis. The subject of this study is the verse "The Principal and secondary aspects must first be decided." and its annotations in the
in the Sanghan chapter of "Yixuerumen". The complex theoretical structure of this verse was firstly analyzed, together with the historical background of how and why Li Chan adopted this concept. The Pyo-Bon concept is the contrast between phenomena(標) and its underlying source of motivation(本). The methodology for this study was to compare and analyze this main verse with contents on Sanghan and Un-gi(運氣) within the text, while reviewing historical theories explaining the physiology and pathology of the human body in terms of the Pyo-bon(標本) concept. As a result, we discovered that the Pyo-bon(標本) concept used in the aforementioned verse of "Yixuerumen" matches the Three Eum Three Yang(三陰三陽)-標本中氣(pyo-bon-jung gi)-gi transformation(氣化) theory of Un-gi(運氣). Li Chan created the connecting link in understanding the Three Eum Three Yang diagnosis system through the viscera/bowels theory(臟腑論) by adopting the Three Eum Three Yang(三陰三陽)-標本中氣(pyo-bon-jung gi)-gi transformation(氣化) theory from Un-gi. Li's work lead to several changes in the field of Sanghan. First, Li understood the disease pattern of Sanghan by using the accumulated knowledge of the viscera/bowel theory during the Jin-Yuan dynasty, and developed a medical perspective that observes the disease pattern based on the body's essence gi(精氣). Second, he set the category of the Sanghan-Three Eum Three Yang disease pattern, establishing a separate guideline. Third, by adding knowledge of herbs to the accumulated knowledge of the viscera/bowel theory, the process of diagnosis and herbal application were made explicable. On the other hand, in the process of interpreting the 三陰三陽 diagnosis system with viscera/bowels theory, theoretical inconsistencies appeared, of which Li tried to mend by several means. The results of the research on "Yixuerumen(醫學入門) the Sanghan chapter(傷寒篇)" calls for further studies, as it has effected both "Dongeuibogam(東醫寶鑑) the Sanghan part(寒門)" and "Dongeuisoosebowon(東醫壽世保元)" as well.

Indications of Hyeongbangpaedok-san for Soyang-type on "Donguisusebowon" are small. Therefore, indications of Hyeongbangpaedok-san for Soyang-type need to be extended for broader clinical use. There would be some methods to do that, and we could review "Dongeuibogam" that Four-Constitution Medicine formulas are based on. We reviewed Hyeongbangpaedok-san, Insampaedok-san which is the origin of Hyeongbangpaedok-san, and their modified formula(加減方) on "Dongeuibogam". As a result, we supposed 12 indications of non-classical formula(後世方) Hyeongbangpaedok-san, 2 indications of modified formula of non-classical formula Hyeongbangpaedok-san, and 12 indications of Insampaedok-san and its modified formula as possible indications of Hyeongbangpaedok for Soyang-type.

Park, Sang-Young ; Kwon, Oh-Min ; Oh, Jun-Ho ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 25, issue 1, 2012, Pages 51~68
Objective : This paper is aimed at suggesting further tasks by checking and rectifying the errors of the ancieut Chinese-vernacular Korean translations of Park Ji-won(朴趾源)'s "Kumryosocho". Method : In order to correct the wrongly transcribed "Kumryosocho" was contrasted with the original "Xiangzubiji(香祖筆記)", of which the part is "Kumryosocho". And then the errors and mistakes are discovered in published ancient Chinese-to-vernacular Korean translations. Result : In the course of checking the existing translations of "Kumryosocho", this paper identified the following types of errors. 1. Errors attributable to unfamiliar names of medicinal herbs 2. Errors due to the unfamiliarity with the names of diseases or symptoms in Traditional Koreau Medicine(TKM). 3. Errors committed in hand transcription. These types of errors were committed as well in translating jargons routinely used in TKM books. To the surprise, the errors above have been repeated even in the latest version of its translation. This means that the medicine-related materials by Silhak scholars, including "Kumryosocho", were placed at a dead zone of the research between Chinese classic scholars and TKM scholars. Conclusion : To minimize errors and mistakes, it is needed to activate the cooperative work of heterogeneous experts in two academic fields.
A study on scholarship paradigm of 'Jiang Shan-Lei(張山雷)' -focus on "Nan Jing Hui Zhu Jian Zheng(難經滙注箋正)"-
Ha, Hong-Ki ; Kim, Ki-Wook ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 25, issue 1, 2012, Pages 69~87
Objective: "Nan Jing Hui Zhu Jian Zheng" published in 1923 is a book that 'Jiang Shan-Lei' wrote. He selected the past footnotes about "Nan Jing(難經)" and developed his own medical ideas on its base. Method : We will try to understand on scholarship paradigm of 'Jiang Shan-Lei' focus on his "Nan Jing Hui Zhu Jian Zheng". Result and Conclusion : He introduced the western medicine system to the Chinese medicine education, and he introduced a viewpoint of the human body of the western medicine to the structure of the human body as well. He judged yes or no of the Chinese medicine theory on the base of his human body viewpoint focused on an anatomy and a physiology. His human body viewpoint like this helped prove actually some of the Chinese medicine theory that was explained ideally. However, it had inappropriate aspects in explaining the Chinese medicine, which has a low alteration of a theory by inferring from the principle, due to a changeability of the western medicine theory itself. Moreover, his rash judgement concerning the Chinese medicine theory on its base brought about even side effects hampering efforts which reveal the Chinese medicine essence.
A Study on the Collateral Vessel Pathology(絡脈病機) of Blood Disease(血證) in Onbyeong(溫病) with focus on Ju-Gaek-Gyo(主客交, guest-host minglement) and Dry Blood(乾血)
Kim, Dong-Hui ; Jeong, Chang-Hyun ; Jang, Woo-Chang ; Lyu, Jeong-Ah ; Baik, You-Sang ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 25, issue 1, 2012, Pages 89~115
Objective : Blood disease is common these days due to modern man's excessiveness in Yang heat (陽熱) and vulnerability of the Eum blood(陰血). This exposes them to warmheat/ dampness-heat diseases, where pathogenic heat easily penetrates the blood dimension(血分) creating stagnated blood(瘀血). Consequently, pathogenic symptoms in the collateral vessels increase, making it crucial to understand the pathogenic mechanism of the disease. Method : This paper examines the condition and region of the collateral vessel diseases(CVD) according to the blood diseases of Onbyeong, by analyzing each prescription's matching symptom. The disease in question in this paper is 'stagnated blood fixated in the collateral vessels'. Therefore diseases with stagnated blood in the Yang collaterals and Viscera collaterals or viscera themselves from the
chapter of "On-Yeok-Ron(溫疫論)", and < Dry Blood-DaeWhangJaChungWhan(大黃蟅蟲丸) > chapter of "Geum-Gue-Yo-Rak(金匱要略)", were examined respectively. Result & Conclusion : The process of CVD according to the blood diseases of Onbyeong can be summarized as follows. First, bleeding in the Yang and Bowel collaterals, then stagnation in the Yang and Bowel collaterals, and finally stagnation in the viscera collaterals or Liver itself. The refractory nature of blood stagnation symptoms of the collateral vessels is mainly due to the characteristics of the collateral vessel itself. In structure, they are very narrow and small, situated at the most terminal part of the body where it is difficult for the Jeong Gi(精氣) to reach. Also, as they are symptomatic of degeneration of Jeong Gi, the root of the disease is very deep. Therefore to resolve blood stagnation in the cases of Ju-Gaek-Gyo and Dry Blood, general approaches using 'Gi communication(行氣)' or 'Blood vitalizing(活血)' medicinals will not suffice. Special medicinals such as crustacean and insects need to be appropriately applied.
A study on research methodology of the quoted verses in "Donguisusebowon" (1)
Park, Su-Hyun ; Jeong, Chang-Hyun ; Baik, You-Sang ; Jang, Woo-Chang ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 25, issue 1, 2012, Pages 117~139
Objective : In this study, I would like to emphasize the importance of context in studying quoted verses in "Donguisusebowon". Method : First, methodology applied in researches on "Donguisusebowon" quotations were organized. Next, in order to examine the effects of the aforementioned methodology, several quoted verses were approached in such method. Result : First, the verse, 'In cases of Dry-Feces(大便秘燥), Rheum undulatum Linne(大黃) could be used in the medicinal formulas and treatment, but not Croton tiglium Linne(巴豆)'. In the texts of Shanghanlun(傷寒論), Zhang, Zhongjing(張仲景) prescribed Sammulbaeksan(三物白散) in treating 'Gyeolhyung due to Excessive cold'(寒實結胸), which includes Croton tiglium Linne(巴豆). From this, we can see that Lee, jema's statement in "Donguisusebowon" is false. Conclusion : Lee, jema's mistake was that he accepted Shanghanlun(傷寒論) as quoted in "Donguibogam", instead of the original text, accidently quoting Heo, jun's source of reference.

Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 25, issue 1, 2012, Pages 141~161
Objective : In "Guanja" there is a clear system with xin and shengren as the central figure, which can be correlated with the united thought can be found in "Huangjenaegyeong". Method : In studying Oriental medicine, we will try to compare the Guanza and Huangjenaegyeong, in that what Sin is doing and how Seongin(聖人) does the work to achieve his prupose, and how Sin has philosophical meaning. Result : Guanja targets a unified government with the king centered, always issues an order, at the same time Guanja survey the system of the military, economy, retainer, people in the gross. In Guanja the Seongin is the ideal king, who understands the four seasons and command in timely, and rule his people using Muui(無爲). Sin is the center which achieve Dao(道) in mankind, and in the government system it is compared as the king to the rellation between king and retainer. "Huangjenaegyeong" is a medicine book which persued the united medical theory and algorithm. It made the general system algorithm, and united many different theories with the Seongin centered, who understand the 天氣 (including four seasons) and can control the human body. In this book, Sin is the center which control other organs. Conclusion : Political philoshphy in Guanja and the united thought in "Huangjenaegyeong" can be correlated in that two both aim for the systematization and the unity.
The Study on the "Sanghanron(傷寒論)"'s Mahanggamsuktang(麻杏甘石湯)
Bang, Jung-Kyun ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 25, issue 1, 2012, Pages 163~171
Objective : There are lots of wrong treatment cases in the "Sanghanron". Therefore, search the symptoms that before performed the wrong treatment is important, and that can be a another way to study "Sanghanron". Method : I'll have to figure out "Sanghanron" related publications. Result : The symptoms of Mahanggamsuktang already had the symptoms of Mahwantang(麻黃湯) and the fever of Lung before performed the wrong treatment. Because pathogenic heat is blockaged in the Lung, so we use the Mahanggamsuktang. Conclusion : The efficacies of this drug are disseminating Lung Gi(肺氣) and clearing heat. However, as the rise and fall of fever, the amount of HERBA EPHEDRAE(麻黃) and GYPSUM FIBROSUM(石膏) can be adjusted.
A Literature Review about Labor theory and practice - Focused on Bulsusan(佛手散) -
Lyu, Jeong-Ah ; Jeong, Chang-Hyun ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 25, issue 1, 2012, Pages 173~196
Object : From the ancient times, the importance of childbirth has been well recognized by Korean Traditional Medicine. Numeral methods have been developed to ease the labor process and keep the mother and child healthy from conception to labor. Bulsusan(佛手散) is one of the main remedies to healthy labor in KTM, both widely known and applied as well. Method : This paper examines the labor theory and practice of KTM focused on Bulsusan which is composed of Angelica gigas Nakai(當歸) and Cnidium officinale MAKINO(川芎). Result : 1. From the ancient times until the Q
ng period, much attention was placed to the handling of the placenta, as it was conceived as bearing much relation to the health of the mother and her fate, and thus included in the labor process. 2. There was a recognition of the 'birth pulse[離經脈]', an intense change in the pulse that presents itself prior to somatic signs of labor. 3. There were numerous prescriptions that were administered beforehand to ease the process. They are mostly constituted with medicinals that nurture Gi(氣) and stimulate its flow, which in turn makes the fetus firm and reduces the volume, easing the labor process. 4. The medical practice of labor-induction was called 'Choesaeng(催生)'. The prescriptions which functioned as such were mostly constituted with blood medicinals such as Angelica gigas Nakai and Cnidium officinale MAKINO, those which nurture both Gi(氣) and blood, and medicinals that physically lubricate the labor pathway such as honey, oil and Talcum(滑石). Conclusion : Bulsusan can be used in most problems concerning pregnancy and labor, and cases of emergency blood loss due to injury. The term 'bulsu(佛手)' infers to the medical ability of the great doctor who takes care of major blood-loss situations resulting from discharge of dead fetus, cesarean delivery, etc. The prescription name takes after this meaning, as it deals with similar conditions in its effect.
