Kim, Gyeong Cheol ; Lee, Hae Woong ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 27, issue 3, 2014, Pages 1~10
DOI : 10.14369/skmc.2014.27.3.001
Objectives : For the excellent differentiation of syndromes, we study on the individual characteristic factor by the interrogation of history taking and palpation. Methods : To the subject of diagnosis special books and diagnostics textbook of korean medicine, we arrange the individual characteristic factor by the interrogation of history taking and palpation. Results : The interrogation of history taking on the individual characteristic factor was arranged dispositional symptoms and individual characteristic of syndromes. And the pulse taking and palpation on the individual characteristic factor was arranged the moderate person`s pulse condition ; floating pulse, deep and sinking pulse, replete and forceful pulse, intermittent pulse, long pulse, slippery or smooth pulse, relaxed or loose pulse (浮沈實大長滑緩脈), six Yin and six Yang pulse (六陽脈, 六陰脈). Conclusions : As the results, the individual characteristic factor is very important item of the four methods of diagnosis and the differentiation of syndromes. And therefore, we have to divide the signs of individual characteristic factor and the signs of disease in the process on four methods of diagnosis and differentiation of syndromes.

Song, Jichung ; Kim, Dohoon ; Eom, Dongmyung ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 27, issue 3, 2014, Pages 11~31
DOI : 10.14369/skmc.2014.27.3.011
Objectives : Nomenclature for medical terminology is the most important point in traditional medical standardization. For example, standard nomenclature for acupuncture points, herbal medicines and prescriptions have been treated. However, studies on standard nomenclature for traditional medical books are rare. Methods : Following up all articles in Journal of Korean Medical Classics[JKMC], which have romanized name for medical books and analyzing problems of those. Results : There were so several methods to write in romanized character even to unique and replaceable name. Conclusions : Romanized nomenclature for medical book as a terminology must have unique expression. So we suggest that authors to write articles have to use unique romanized nomenclature for medical books and books published in a certain country should be written in romanized characters with their own languages.

Park, Sang-Kyun ; Bang, Jung-Kyun ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 27, issue 3, 2014, Pages 33~46
DOI : 10.14369/skmc.2014.27.3.033
Objectives : Sosihotang is a typical prescription in Sang Han Lun. And the alternate chills and fever is a Sosihotang`s typical symptom. Therefore I will study of how the syndrome of Sosihotang`s alternate chills and fever caused. Methods : Examine the claims of the syndrome of Sosihotang`s alternate chills and fever in Sang Han Lun. The scholar`s claims are not all same. Thus, I analysis the claims of many scholars. Results : The syndrome of Sosihotang has two mechanisms. The move of defensive Gi(衛氣) can explain the occurrence of alternate chills and fever. If the defense Gi enter inside the body, it struggle with pathogenic Gi, the fever is occurred. On the contrary to this, if the defense Gi exits the body the chills occurs because of the lack of defense Gi. Conclusions : The syndrome of Sosihotang could be taken ill by tranmission or direct attack of exogenous pathogenic factors(直中). Symptoms chills and fever occurs due to the entrance and exit of defensive Gi.
Discussion on Spring Water(論泉水), a Study from Junsangpaljeon(遵生八牋)
Hong, Jin-Im ; Yun, Chang-Yeol ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 27, issue 3, 2014, Pages 47~66
DOI : 10.14369/skmc.2014.27.3.047
Objectives : Evaluating water and its comparisons to Yin(陰) and Yang(陽). In this section, we will look into this matter from Dongeuibogam(東醫寶鑑) and introduce an oriental perspective on the subject of water(水部). Methods : Translating Eumchanboksikjeon(飮饌服食牋) from Junsangpaljeon(遵生八牋). An in depth study of related contents and comparing to the water section(水部) of Dongeuibogam(東醫寶鑑) Results : According to the section of Varieties of Teas and Water(茶泉類) in The Discussion of Springs(論泉水), Goryum(高濂) divided water into five different types in Eumchanboksikjeon(飮饌服食牋) of Junsangpaljeon(遵生八牋). These different types are Water that runs between rocks, Clear and cold water, Sweet and fragrant water, Spiritual water and Well water. Dongeuibogam(東醫寶鑑) also analyzed 28 different types of water out the 33 its list. The idea is that one must use water differently according its origins, where it originated, when and what season to maximize the usage of the water because the energy of water would be different. Conclusions : By evaluating water, we have learned that water picks up energy and changes according to its surrounding environments. The different types of water used changes the medicinal ingredients and it affects the human body differently. One must keep in mind, the cycles of water, its energy and how it helps us live a healthier life.
A Study on Jukmiryu(粥穈類) in Junsaengpaljeon(遵生八牋) - with regard to Nonohangeon(老老恒言)
Hong, Jin-Im ; Yun, Chang-Yeol ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 27, issue 3, 2014, Pages 67~86
DOI : 10.14369/skmc.2014.27.3.067
Objectives : In this study, I want to work on efficacious porridges through inquiry into the Jukmiryu(粥穈類) based on the classical literature. It is intended to serve as a basic study to explore the modern-day application of dishes that are good as patient meals or healthy foods for elderly people. Methods : I have taken the original text of Jukmiryu(粥穈類) included in Junsaengpaljeon(遵生八牋) and translated it. Further, I have compared it to those porridges treated in Nonohangeon (老老恒言), a book in geriatrics from Ming Dynasty. Results : Nonohangeon(老老恒言) describes sources and effects of 100 porridges. With recipes too simplified, however, it doesn`t provide any practical help. In contrast, Junsaengpaljeon(遵生八牋) presents 40 porridges together with their effects and recipes. It is practically more beneficial, as it provides recipes more specific than Nonohangeon(老老恒言). Conclusions : Jukmiryu(粥穈類) in Junsaengpaljeon(遵生八牋) set great store on the pharmacological effects of food. As it provides detailed description of porridge recipes and ingredients as well as their effects, readers can easily apply them to symptoms. Since individuals may choose what would be appropriate for their own symptoms, it could be helpful in not only providing patient meals and foods for elderly people but also improving dietary practice.
A Study on The Applicatin of IChing to Medicine - From Trigram to Myeongmun Theory
Baik, You-Sang ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 27, issue 3, 2014, Pages 87~100
DOI : 10.14369/skmc.2014.27.3.087
Objectives : In this article, an analysis of some documents about medical thought of change in medical history explains how the concept of it has been established and expanded, and through that, we can find the fusion of tradition between medicine and the study of IChing. Methods : Through investigation and analyses of the texts about medical thought of change in important medical books, the contexts of the history will be drawn. Results : Although the study of IChing and medicine have been developed separately in the early period of medical history, it has been started to fuse explanations for symptoms and mechanisms of diseases using trigram images. Yin-yang and wuxing changes(陰陽五行) of human body have been explained with 12 changing trigram(消息卦) and eight trigram(八卦). In the Ming dynasty, the establishment of Myeongmun(命門) theory was influenced largely from IChing, but it was followed by a scathing criticism of some doctors in the Qing dynasty. Conclusions : Developing of the study about Iching and medicine, thought of change has been an important foundation of new theories in traditional medicine like as the issue of Myeongmun theory, as a result, it has contributed to the development of clinical medicine.
A Study on Treatment for Symptoms of Hypoadrenocorticism and Indicant of Kidney Jeonggyeok(腎正格)
Kim, Bumseok ; Baik, You-Sang ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 27, issue 3, 2014, Pages 101~122
DOI : 10.14369/skmc.2014.27.3.101
Objectives : The comparison of symptoms of hypoadrenocorticism with symptoms according to spleen and kidney show how many points of similarity they are. And by analysis of symptoms of hypoadrenocorticism it was examined that Kidney Jeonggyeok help to cure many different symptoms including symptoms of hypoadrenocorticism. Methods : The symptoms of hypoadrenocorticism were compared and analyzed according to standards of the book of korean traditional medical pathology. First, this study was designed to show to found out how many symptoms of hypoadrenocorticism belong to symptoms of kidney qi-deficiency and slpeen qi-deficiency and how similar they are. Second, the symptoms of kidney qi deficiency were compared with the indicant of kidney Jeonggyeok suggested by two of korean traditional doctors to find out kidney Jeonggyeok can help to cure symptoms of kidney qi deficiency. And then on the basis of those, the symptoms of hypoadrenocorticism were compared with the symptoms of kidney qi deficiency. Results : The hypoadrenocorticism seems to be kidney yang(陽) deficiency. But because hypoadrenocorticism doesn`t have body temperature decline, symptoms of hypoadrenocorticism are more similar symptoms of kidney qi deficiency than symptoms of kidney yang deficiency. The symptoms of hypoadrenocorticism seems to be correlated with the functions of spleen. But because of vomiting and pigmentation(skin and mucous membrane), they seem to have less to do with the functions of spleen than the functions of kidney. The comparison analysis of indicant of Kidney Jeonggyeok and symptoms of kidney qi deficiency shows that acupuncture stimulation help to cure kidney qi deficiency and hypoadrenocorticism. Conclusions : Symptoms of hypoadrenocorticism are expected to be more similar symptoms of kidney qi deficiency. And Kidney Jeonggyeok is helpful for treatment of Kidney qi deficiency and hypoadrenocorticism.
A Study on Judangye`s Theory of Sasang(four harms) -with a Focus on Gyeokchiyeoron and Geumgweguhyeon -
Yoon, Young-Heum ; Yun, Chang-Yeol ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 27, issue 3, 2014, Pages 123~140
DOI : 10.14369/skmc.2014.27.3.123
Objectives : As there was no sufficient research done on Sasang (four harms: 氣[qi], 血[blood], 痰[phlegm], and 鬱[congestion]), which serves as a precept in treatment of miscellaneous diseases, in contrast with `Yang is always teeming whereas Yin is always scarce` and `Sanghwa-ron`, which are Judangye`s major theories, I have come to work on it. I expect that with this, we can understand Judangye`s medical theory and therapy for a variety of diseases. Methods : To begin with, I take a look at the definition of Sasang. And then, I make selections of theories and therapy related to Sasang from Gyeokchiyeoron(格致餘論) and Geumgweguhyeon(金匱鉤玄), which are Judangye`s writings. My study follows the order of energy, blood, phlegm, and congestion. Results : Through Gyeokchiyeoron, I have learned more about Judangye`s theory on how energy, blood, phlegm, and congestion cause diseases. And as for therapy, I have tapped into Geumgweguhyeon to use sagunja-tang(四君子湯) for drained energy, samul-tang(四物湯) for drained blood, ijin-tang(二陳湯) for phlegm, and wolguk-hwan(越鞠丸) for congestion, thus verifying the originality of Judangye`s theory. Conclusions : "Judangye for miscellaneous diseases" was confirmed through his treatments for energy, blood, phlegm, and congestion. And his idea of Yang-eum(養陰 `nurturing yin`) is now reflected in therapy for miscellaneous diseases, now serving as a study that provides a comprehensive understanding of Judangye`s medical theories.

DOI : 10.14369/skmc.2014.27.3.155
Objectives : Many keyboarding staff are required for compositional herb data entry from ancient documents. It`s the most difficult thing to build DB. So, we have studied to solve this problem. Methods : We have used Windows 7 and Access2013 for automatic extraction compositional herb in the Taipinghuiminhejijufang(太平惠民和劑局方). First of all, we have made synonyms list of herbs and list of herb volumes notation. And than we have analyzied order of arrangements between names of herb and notations of herb volume. Results : We have analyzied a part of prescriptions in the Taipinghuiminhejijufang(太平惠民和劑局方) (519 prescriptions). After 91 seconds, we can complete automatic extraction of compositional herb from 519 prescriptions. Conclusions : If we can analyzie order of arrangements between names of herb and notations of herb volume, we can automatically extract compositional herb of prescription from ancient documents.
A Study on the Application of the Changing Theory of Sameumsamyang(三陰三陽) Pyobonjung(標本中) to Clinical Treatment - Focusing on doctor`s Articles -
Baik, You-Sang ; Kim, Do-Hoon ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 27, issue 3, 2014, Pages 167~182
DOI : 10.14369/skmc.2014.27.3.167
Objectives : In this article, an analysis of the changing theory(從化理論) of Sameumsamyang(三陰三陽) and Pyobonjung(標本中) in some important medical books, and the historical contexts of those is investigated. Methods : Primary literatures about the changing theory were searched by key words of Sameumsamyang and Pyobonjung in main medical texts, and then analyses and selecting of significant documents have followed. Results : The application of the changing theory to clinical treatment has been mainly done in the process of comprehension and practice about "Sanghanron(傷寒論)". Getting out of simple explanation about meaning of paragraphs in "Sanghanron", the clinical application has been expended to detail drug instruction and prescription managements. Conclusions : The changing theory of Sameumsamyang and Pyobonjung has been actively applied to supporting clinical treatment historically, not recognized merely as a ideal theory.
