    Objective The purpose of this study is to understand the meaning of Splenic Constipation(脾約) in 'Donguisusebowon(東醫壽世保元)'. Methods We investigated the provisions associated with splenic constipation written in 'Donguisusebowon', 'Donguibogam(東醫寶鑑)', 'Shanghanlun(傷寒論)' and several papers which related to splenic constipation. Results and Conclusions 1. Splenic constipation in 'Donguisusebowon' falls into the category of Soeumin Yang Depletion Symptomatology(少陰人 亡陽病). The symptoms of splenic constipation include sweating and smooth urination. 2. Splenic constipation in 'Donguisusebowon', 'Shanghanlun', 'Donguibogam' is based on fluid deficiency, but splenic constipation in 'Donguisusebowon' is focused on sweating unlike 'Shanghanlun' and sweating was quoted in 'Donguibogam'. 3. Splenic constipation in 'Shanghanlun' and 'Donguibogam' is focused primarily on constipation. The difference is that splenic constipation in 'Donguibogam' relates to sweating. 4. Therefore, even if they use the same term, we need to understand that the meaning of splenic constipation in 'Donguisusebowon' is different from that of 'Shanghanlun' and 'Donguibogam'.

    Objective The management of psychological distress in patients with cancer is a major concern in clinical practice. In this paper, we discussed how to apply the controlling methods of Seong-Jeong (性情) and covetous desire (心慾) of Sasang constitutional medicine to patients with cancer. Methods We investigated the controlling methods of Seong-Jeong (性情) and covetous desire (心慾) through the literature of 『Gyukchigo (格致藁)』, 『Donguisusebowon-Sasangchobongyun (東醫壽世保元 四象草本卷)』, 『Donguisusebowon (東醫壽世保元) and 『Dongmuyougo (東武遺稿)』, and presented the controlling methods of Seong-Jeong (性情) and covetous desire (心慾) for patients with cancer based on the clinical experience. Results We identified the equilibrium and harmony (中節) of sorrow-anger-joy-pleasure (喜怒哀樂) is the basis of treatment and suggested ‘understanding of the others (知人)’, ‘understanding of the diseases (知病)’ and ‘knowing and acting (知行)’ as methods to control of Seong-Jeong (性情) and covetous desire (心慾). The ‘understanding of the others (知人)’ and ‘understanding of the diseases (知病)’ could reduce the psychological distress. The ‘knowing and acting (知行)’ encourages the patients to overcome the covetous desire (心慾) and have a positive attitude to life and disease. Conclusion The controlling method of Seong-Jeong (性情) and covetous desire (心慾) of Sasang constitutional medicine could help cancer treatment controlling the psychological distress of patients with cancer, and could impact positively on the view of life and disease.
