A study on the notion of Shanghanlun Greater yang disease from Ke-qin's Taiyangbingjie
Lee, Sang-Hyup ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 25, issue 2, 2012, Pages 1~13
Objective : Zhang, Zhongjing(張仲景)'s Sanghanlun(傷寒論) is based on Six-channels system(六經) to classified a disease. But the notion of Six-channels system seems to be a very various angles. For example, Meridian and collateral theory(經絡說), Viscera and Bowels theory(臟腑說), Grade theory(段階說), Surface theory(地面說), Symptoms theory(症候群說), Six-disease theory(六病說), Eight principle pattern theory(八綱說) and all the rest of it. Above all things Meridian and collateral theory was very frequently quoted to explain the Six-channels system(六經). But it's true notion is not restrict to a meridian vessel(經脈). Method : I will try to describe the Sanghanlun's Greater yang disease(太陽病) through the Ke-qin(柯琴)'s Taiyangbingjie(太陽病解), and I would like to point out that the existing perception that Greater yang(太陽) is connected with Bladder meridian(足太陽膀胱經) is wrong. Result : Ke-qin's Taiyangbingjie explained the greater yang disease was connected with Heart(yang within yang), which was located in the top half and the outer layer of the body. In addition to the presence of the diaphragm or lungs are involved with. Conclusion : Practical meaning of greater yang disease is not connect with Bladder meridian, but it is related to the Heart and Lung for maintain the Nutrient and defense circulation (營衛循環).
A Literature Study on 'A tongue can detect five basic tastes' and 'A mouth can perceive the five cereals' in Youngchu.Macdo
Kim, Jin-Ho ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 25, issue 2, 2012, Pages 15~24
Objective : I would define the differences of sentences that 'A tongue can detect five basic tastes' and 'A mouth can perceive the five cereals' in Youngchu Macdo(靈樞 脈度). Methods : 1. I refer to literatures for the sentences in Youngchu Macdo 2. I look into the symptoms which may be caused by heart and pancreas troubles, respectively. Result : Human being can not detect a specific taste on his heart trouble. That is, acid, bitter, sweet, hot, and saltness can be all one. Human being may lose his appetite on his pancreas trouble. Even though the viscera and the tongue are connected to on-meridians, the function of a tongue is managed and controlled by a heart. Such a tongue perceives five basic tastes. Conclusion : A healthy tongue appreciates five basic tastes clearly and a healthy mouth may stimulate his appetite.
The Study of the Literature on the Book of Neijingshiyifanglun with additions and emendations
Ahn, Jae-Young ; Jo, Hak-Jun ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 25, issue 2, 2012, Pages 25~41
Objective : Neijingshiyifanglun with additions and emendations was written by Liu Yude, a doctor who lived during Ming period. I researched the origin of the book, and analyzed the features of it as well. I also approximated his birth date and death date. In doing this, I gained a better understanding the practice of medicine in ancient China. Method : I researched the book by comparing its contents, including the causes of diseases, the descriptions of symptoms, the transmissions of diseases, and treatments, with other sources that he had referenced. Result : In understanding Hwangdineijing, Liu Yude was influenced by many medical scholars such as, Wang Bing, Ma Shi, and Wu Kun, but his opinion is most similar to that of Zhang Jiebin. In the field of the Chinese Medical Theory, he was deeply influenced by 'JinYuan-Sidaijia's theories, particularly Li Gao and Zhu Zhenheng. In fanglun, he was greatly influenced by Yifangkao. He concluded that 'aggregationaccumulation' was a disease of stuffiness, and suggested its cure in through 'yangjingzezichu' and 'treatment of blood aspect'. He recognized the disease of 'reversal of qi' as the disease of 'jiaoqi'. He also indicated that the word of 'qi' is not 'rough' but 'tears' or 'yingfengliulei'. Conclusion : 1. He was an excellent medical practitioner and scholar in the history of oriental medicine. 2. He found and corrected errors in the opinions of Wang Bing, Ma Shi, and Wu Kun. 3. He frequently practiced Taipinghuiminhejijufang, and considered Spleen-Stomach, yin-blood, and fire-heat important. 4. He captured the spirit of Huangdisuwenxuanminglunfang, Neijingshiyifanglun, Yifangkao in views of remedy and theory. 5. Neijingshiyifanglun with additions and emendations is the most comprehensive book about fanglun because of its thorough analysis of the Hwangdineijing and its connection to the treatment of ancient diseases in Oriental Medical History.
The pathways of semen described in ancient East Asian classics - focussed on the lateral Viscera Drawings
Shin, Seung-Hoon ; Bae, Seong-Cheol ; Kim, Ki-Wang ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 25, issue 2, 2012, Pages 43~74
Objective : Due to the tendency of researchers to avoid anatomical approach to East Asian medical classics, their ideas on seminal pathways have not been clearly reconstructed yet. So we tried to concretely reconstruct the pathway of semen described in ancient East Asian classics. Methods : Besides analysing the literal description about seminal pathways, we gathered and classified the ancient Viscera Drawings drawn in East Asian countries - especially the drawings in lateral view, and morphologically analysed them with some literal material. Results : We found that there were 3 major streams in the ancient Asian ideas on the seminal pathways. The first one was the modality originated from Hwangjenaegyeong(黃帝內經), which suggested the semen flew out of the kidney. The second one was the modality arose under the influence of Taoist thinking, which suggested the semen was originated from the brain and spinal cord. The last one was revision of the first modality by Janggaebin(張介賓), which asserted semen was originated from the kidney, but was ejaculated via Myeongmun(命門). Conclusion : On the seminal pathways, there had been 2 types of ideas focussing on kidney and one idea focussing on brain and spinal cord in East Asian tradition.

A study on Ye, Tianshi's treatment by means of both communication and supplementation of the Stomach-Bu(胃腑, Stomach-bowel)
Jung, Kyung-Suk ; Baik, You-Sang ; Jang, Woo-Chang ; Jeong, Chang-Hyun ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 25, issue 2, 2012, Pages 125~139
Objective : This study began with a recognition of the increase in internal disorders caused by functional impairment of the Spleen-Stomach(脾胃) due to modern dietary culture and environment. Method : Way of studying is select and analysis sentences which is include 'Stomach-Yin(胃陰)', 'Stomach-Jin(胃津)', 'Spleen-Stomach-Yin(脾胃陰)', 'Stomach-Yang(胃陽)', 'Spleen-Stomach-Yang (脾胃陽)' in Imjeungjinamuian(臨證指南醫案), and organize relevant paper. Result & Conclusion : In the history of the Spleen-Stomach Theory(脾胃學說), the theoretical mainstream was focused on On-yang(溫養), which was supplemented with methods of sweeten-cool-moisturize(甘凉濡潤) and communication-descent(通降法) by Ye, Tianshi(葉天士). Ye, Tianshi followed the academic theory of Li, Dongyuan(李東垣), putting emphasis on Stomach-gi(胃氣), along with some unique developments of his own. He specifically argued that the Spleen and Stomach be treated separately, and while accepting the methods of Li Dong-yuan in Spleen treatment, asserted that the Stomach-Yin be treated with medicinals with sweet/plain and sweet/cool/moist(甘平與甘凉濡潤) characteristics, and Stomach-Yang be kept firmly, as to prevent obstruction and reflux, by means of medicinals that communicate the Yang softly(通陽柔劑). As a result, the Yin-Yang(陰陽), Dryness-Dampness(燥濕) and Cold-Heat(寒熱) balance of the Yin-Jang (陰臟), Spleen and the Yang-Bu(陽腑), Stomach, the Stomach-Yin and Stomach-Yang was achieved both theoretically and in treatment by means of both communication and supplementation, adding accuracy to clinical application of the Spleen-Stomach Theory.

Ahn, Jin-Hee ; Baik, You-Sang ; Jang, Woo-Chang ; Jeong, Chang-Hyun ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 25, issue 2, 2012, Pages 141~168
Objective : The objective of this paper is to study the characteristics of the categorization of acupuncure points of the Lung Meridian(肺經) based on Hwangdineijingmingtang(黃帝內經明堂). Method : This paper examines several texts regarding the Lung Meridian. Result and Conclusion : Out of Yang Shangshan(楊上善)'s work, the theoretical aspects are presented in Hwangdineijingmingtang, whereas contents regarding acupuncture points are presented in Hwangdineijingmingtang. This is due to Yang's position as an imperial doctor(太醫侍御). In Hwangdineijingmingtang, Yang explains the characteristics of Metal(金) based on Hwangdineijingmingtang followed by an explanation of the acupuncture points of the Lung Meridian, which shows his emphasis on the relationship between the meridian as the main branch and the viscera. Along this medical logic, Yang must have included LU1(中府) into the Lung Meridian. This is Yang's unique point of view, distinguishing itself from other texts regarding the Lung Meridian. Apart from the means of explanation of the Lung Meridian by Yang, the verse 'made a volume for each 12 meridian' in the introduction of Hwangdineijingmingtang, discussion of the main treatable diseases of Hwangdineijingmingtang, contents on pathways of Lingshu Jingmai(靈樞 經脈), the start and end points of the meridians in Lingshu Maidu(靈樞 脈度) points to the assumption that each acupuncture point's belonging meridian known to us today was fixated by Yang.
