Ahn, Jin-hee ; Kim, Hye-il ; Jeong, Chang-hyun ; Jang, Woo-chang ; Baik, You-sang ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 29, issue 1, 2016, Pages 1~15
DOI : 10.14369/skmc.2016.29.1.001
Objectives : The purpose of this study is to investigate the method of setting up logic and estimate Fang Youzhi`s work through Shanghanluntiaobian. Methods : Wang Shuhe`s old edition Shanghanlun and Fang Youzhi`s Shanghanluntiaobian were compared and several essential provisions were analyzed and addressed the positive and negative aspects of Fang Youzhi`s revising old edition Shanghanlun mixed bamboo tablets. Results : Fang Youzhi`s changing Bianmaifa("辨脈法") and Pingmaifa("平脈法") and placement Bianchishiyemaizhengbingzhi chapter after Liujingbingmaizhengbingzhi for discriminating convulsion dampness summer heat stroke from febrile diseases is appropriate. Fang Youzhi`s deletion Shanghanli("傷寒例") chapter that has a guiding characteristics shows his editorial policy. Fang Youzhi`s addition Bianwenbingfengwenzabingmaizhengbingzhi chapter is for discriminating febrile disease from epidemic febrile disease wind warmth syndrome miscellaneous disease and it indicates Shanghanlun is a book of treatment after differentiation of syndromes containing epidemic febrile disease and miscellaneous disease. Through Fang Youzhi`s revising method I can see several positive aspects. First he tried to refine the logic of the content of Shanghanlun and accord with an actual situation. Second he shows Shanghanlun is a book of treatment after differentiation of syndromes containing epidemic febrile disease and miscellaneous disease and tried to see Shanghanlun clearly. A criticism of the Preserving Old Edition Shanghanlun group could interrupt flexibility and creative thinking reading Shanghanlun and a criticism to the Sangangdingli Principles of the several exegetists is a productive criticism because medicine treats human being so it cannot be completed by a logic. Conclusions : All of these processes are Fang Youzhi`s endeavour for strengthening the system and logicality of the old edition Shanghanlun and it is meaningful to show a method to read Shanghanlun to beginners.

Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 29, issue 1, 2016, Pages 17~41
DOI : 10.14369/skmc.2016.29.1.017
Subjects : A literature research on the constitution and medicinal effect & adaptation diseases of "Bullsusan". "Bullsusan" is a herbal prescription composed of Angelicae Gigantis Radix(當歸) and Cnidii Rhizoma(川芎). Objectives : Through the researching on the records of "Bullsusan" in Korean Traditional Medical Books, gain the literature evidence for adaptation to these days child labor as a pre-labor keeping herbal medicine. And have detailed consideration on the constitution of prescription and medicinal effect & adaptation diseases of "Bullsusan". Methods : First, researched the records of "Bullsusan" in Korean Traditional Medical Books which were included at A Series of Korean Medicine(韓國醫學大系) and analysed component ratio, nickname, herbal manufacture and drug processing method, medicinal effect and adaptation diseases. Second, referred related Korean and Chinese researches that examined the medicinal effect and adaptation diseases of "Bullsusan" by scientific experimentation. Conclusions : We found total 46 records of "Bullsusan" from 20 kinds of Korean Traditional Medical Books included at A Series of Korean Medicine. Prescription component ratio of Angelicae Gigantis Radix and Cnidii Rhizoma were 3:2, 1:1, 2:1, 1:1. 3:2 had most 20 records and 1:1 had second 14 records. Especially 1:1 had a tendency of having nickname "Goonguitang", but not must had. First herbal manufacture was powder, it had 8 records. First drug processing method was decocting with water and alcohol, had 19 records. Medical Effects of "Bullsusan" can be induced to next 8, that were "remove get bad blood, give birth new blood", "easy labor by reducing fetal volume", "acceleration of labor", "test of fetal survival, elimination of dead embryo", "elimination of placenta", "revive", "allaying pain", "nourish the blood". From these medical effects, 9 adaptation diseases can be induced. That were "threatened abortion", "womb ache and vaginal bleeding by spontaneous abortion", "pre-labor keeping(prevention of hard labor)", "acceleration of labor", "hard labor", "missed abortion", "postnatal vaginal bleeding, dizziness, asthma, headache, womb ache", "postnatal mastoptosis and mastodynia", "first aid symptom like as dizziness, unconsciousness, stroke caused by excessive bleeding". The medical effect of "acceleration of labor" and "elimination of placenta" have been examined by modern clinical research. The effect of "remove get bad blood, give birth new blood", "allaying pain" and "nourish the blood" have been examined by modern experimental study. But overdosing on "Bullsusan" to pregnant mouse can cause natural abortion, so the proper dose of "Bullsusan" in pregnant period is very important.

Song, Jichung ; Kim, Mingeon ; Lee, Gyuwon ; Han, Laegyeong ; Eom, Dongmyung ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 29, issue 1, 2016, Pages 43~54
DOI : 10.14369/skmc.2016.29.1.043
Objectives : The word, Simju are usually regarded as Simpo. However, I recognized that Simju was not Simpo in Huandinsijing. Therefore, I tried to find out the meaning of Simju in Huangdineijing and also tried to find out the meaning of Simpo, Simporak and Porak in Huangdineijing because those words are related to Simju. Methods : I referred several annotations, which explained the words ; Simju, Simpo, Simporak, Porak and classified the meanings. Results : 22 Simju out of 25 in Huangdineijing didn`t mean Simpo. Those meant Gwoleum of Sugwoleum. Rest of 2 Simju meant heart and 1 meant Simpo. Only one Simju meant Simpo even thogh Simju are usually regarded as Simpo. Conclusions : The word couldn`t mean the same meaning comparing to what are usually used as a certain meaning, so researchers could consider to treat several words` meaning by time and places.

Song, Jichung ; Eom, Dongmyung ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 29, issue 1, 2016, Pages 55~63
DOI : 10.14369/skmc.2016.29.1.055
Objectives : Doctors are obviously one of the most interesting subject in medical history. Doctors are who treat patients and disease and the authors for medical records or books. Especially doctors in traditional medicine mostly tried to write medical books for new idea or their esperiences or leave their medical records for treatments, medication, prescription and so on. Therefore, many researchers have explained Korean or Chinese medical history of traditional society through those books or documents rather than doctors themselves. The Annals of the Joseon Dynasty has massive records for history, politics, society, culture, etc. Relating to medical history in traditional Korean medicine, there are ceveral researches about disease of King, disease itself, the methods of treatment and so on, through The Annals of the Joseon Dynasty. However, there are few on activities of many doctors in The Annals of the Joseon Dynasty. Methods : I tried to find out the names who had some roles of medicine in The Annals of King Sejong out of The Annals of the Joseon Dynasty. I could get 35 doctors and browsed 35 doctors in The Annals of the Joseon Dynasty again. Finally, I could have lots of articles from The Annals of the Joseon Dynasty related to 33 doctors(2 dontors had no records about medicine even they were doctors). Results : I categorized 2 ways of those articles; medical activities, non-medical activities. For medical activities, I got subcategories for medical activities; medical maltreatment, treatment for King, royal family, bureaucrat, ambassador. I also got subcategories for non-medical activities; publishing medical books, ambassador as a doctor, medical training, things related to hot spring, food therapist, veterinarian. Conclusions : Medical history of Joseon Dynasty in Korean medical history has somehow been recorded by medical books such as Hyangyakjipseongbang, Euibangyuchwi, Euilimchwalyo, Dongeuibogam, Jejungsinpyeon, Dongeuisusebowon, etc. So I have concerned that there are massive records on doctors activities in The Annals of the Joseon Dynasty and tried to focus on their various activities through this research.
A Study on the Theory of JiaJi Years(甲己年) as a period of South Politics(南政) and the Rest Eight Years as a period of North Politics(北政)
Yun, Chang-Yeol ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 29, issue 1, 2016, Pages 65~76
DOI : 10.14369/skmc.2016.29.1.065
Objectives : Generally, pulsation is influenced by climate change in the realms of nature. However, there is a theory explaining a phenomenon in which the pulse gets weaker and even absent for no reason, without affected by diseases; this is the Theory of South and North Politics with which medical practitioners need to be familiar when taking the pulse of patients. Methods : The researcher considered all the previous annotations and the original text of SuWen (素問) ZhiZhenYaoDaLun(至眞要大論). Results : In Five Elements` Evolutions, JiaJi(甲己) becomes Tu(土), which turns itself into the king, an honorable duty. JiaJi is a period of South Politics because it looks south to give an order while the rest eight years is a period of North Politics because they are headed north to receive an order. Conclusions : Since South Politics years look south as a standard, Cun(寸) is located at the south and Chi(尺) is at the north. Controlling the Heaven energy(司天) is located at the south and Effecting the Earth energy(在泉) is at the north. Therefore, if Sanyin is Controlling the Heaven energy(三陰司天), the Cun pulse is absent; if Shaoyin is Controlling the Heaven energy(少陰司天), Cun pulses on both wrists are not felt; if Jueyin is Controlling the Heaven energy(厥陰司天), the Cun pulse on the right wrist disappears; if Taiyin is Controlling the Heaven energy(太陰司天), the Cun pulse on the left wrist is not felt. In the case of Chi, if Sanyin is Effecting the Earth energy(三陰在泉), the Chi pulse is absent; if Shaoyin is Effecting the Earth energy(少陰在泉), Chi pulses on both wrists are not felt; if Jueyin is Effecting the Earth energy(厥陰在泉), the Chi pulse on the right wrist disappears; if Taiyin is Effecting the Earth energy(太陰在泉), the Chi pulse on the left wrist is not felt. North Politics years appears conversely as compared with South Politics years.
A Study on the Treatments of Yiyuan(醫原) based on the Concepts of Dryness and Dampness
Eun, Seokmin ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 29, issue 1, 2016, Pages 77~97
DOI : 10.14369/skmc.2016.29.1.077
Objectives : Yiyuan(醫原) written by Shi Shoutang(石壽棠) is well known for its focusing on the concept of dryness and dampness in medical theory. This study was done to analyze the formation process of main academic thought in Yiyuan, which included tracing its original sources that had made it possible to construct the main idea in this book. Methods : Firstly, Yiyuan was analyzed in comparison with Yili(醫理) by Yu Guopei(余國佩), which is regarded as the main origin of Yiyuan. And secondly, many diverse medical theories before Yu Guopei and Shi Shoutang was scrutinized to understand the process of the construction of dryness/dampness-centered medical theory. Results & Conclusions : Shi Shoutang took over the main idea of Yu Guopei and expanded it both in theoretical and clinical aspects. Especially, the most remarkable contribution by Shi Shoutang can be said that he used the astronomical theory which had the concept of multi-layered heaven and intensified the theoretical basis of medical theory emphasizing the significance of dryness and dampness. Besides, Shi Shoutang`s medical theory was a thing which was also based on many cumulative assertions about dryness and dampness before him. Yu Jiayan`s assertion on dryness and dampness could be acknowledged as the most influential one, and it also could be said that the arguments surrounding the property of dryness had formed the main question in the development of medical theory centered on dryness and dampness.
A study on the use of fish as food treatment in Singnyochanyo
Hong, Jin Im ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 29, issue 1, 2016, Pages 99~111
DOI : 10.14369/skmc.2016.29.1.099
Objectives : The researcher figured out the kinds of fish that were used as a treatment for various diseases, and based on the result, studied on how to enhance healthy life and facilitate disease treatment with fish-based treatment. Methods : The researcher first extracted prescriptions based on fish from Singnyochanyo and later, analyzed the extracts by main efficacies, ingredients, recipes and intake periods. Results & Conclusions : According to study, Singnyochanyo used snakeheads twice, eels eleven times, crucian carps eight times, gray mullets once, carps twelve times and yellow croakers three times. When it comes to crucian carps, Singnyochanyo utilized them for asthma-related symptoms, stomach-related diseases, diarrhea, dysentery and hemorrhoid. Donguibogam, however, used crucian carps for more specific purposes - dysentery and stomach-related diseases. In Singnyochanyo, gray mullets and yellow croakers were used to treat stomach-related diseases only one to three times. Carps were applied to treat diseases twelve times in total, five of them for pregnancy-related diseases. For pregnant women, it was recommended to make a soup of carps with side ingredients.

Jang, Heewon ; Song, Jichung ; Eom, Dongmyung ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 29, issue 1, 2016, Pages 113~123
DOI : 10.14369/skmc.2016.29.1.113
Objectives : In this study, we tried to analyze the relationship between effect terms and five tastes in heat-clearing herbs. In order to analyze exactly, we also attempted to extract and refine the effect terms. And finally, we tried to infer the effects of each tastes and suppose new effects of each heat-clearing herbs based on their tastes. Methods : Firstly, we extracted the five tastes and effect terms among the heat-claearing herbs written in Herbology. After that, we divided each effect terms to single meaning term and refined them. We also grouped herbs by tastes and set the effect terms in the order of frequency. So we could analyze the relationship between the tastes and the effect terms and supposed the effect of each herbs. Results & Conclusions : We extracted 7 tastes and 87 effect terms. And they was refined to 63 effect terms. As the result of analyzing the effect terms based the tastes, all of heat-clearing herbs included the effects of heat-clearing and detoxification, regardless of tastes. The herbs which have the bitter tastes, included the effects of drying dampness, fire-purging and blood-cooling. And we supposed new effects in 10 kinds of herbs among them. The herbs which have the sweet tastes, included the effects of blood-cooling and fluid-engendering. The herbs which have the hot tastes, included the effects of inducing diuresis and swelling-dispersing. And we supposed new effects in 2 kinds of herbs, by analyzing the relationship between the tastes and effect terms.

Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 29, issue 1, 2016, Pages 125~137
DOI : 10.14369/skmc.2016.29.1.125
Objectives : Introduction to Medicine(醫學入門, Yixuerumen) is one of the basic clinical texts in Korean medical history. This study is designed to prove clinical value of Introduction to Medicine for practitioners in their early stage of clinical practice. Methods : Introduction to Medicine is closely reviewed in various aspects in order to examine broad outlines of specificity as well as its distinctive constructional feature. Results : Since Introduction to Medicine showed peculiar intention of developing practitioner`s clinical ability, it has been a preferential choice for Korean medicine practitioners to enhance their qualification at the early stage of one`s career in Korean history. It is still valid for modern practitioners because composite medical texts are needed in order to systematize one`s fragmental knowledge acquired from institutional education. Conclusions : Introduction to Medicine shows a large potential as a clinical textbook in the course of maximizing one`s clinical ability with its aid. Through understanding multilateral aspects of clinical guidelines and directions engraved in Introduction to Medicine, learners will be able to derive full capacity from the text.
