    Abstract PDF
    Objective: The purpose of this study was to understand the conclusion of 「Gwangjeseol」 in 『Dongeuisusebowon』 in a more accurate sense. Method: We examined the basic viewpoint of Lee je-ma in 「Seongmyeonglon」 in 『Dongeuisusebowon』. Based on the interpretation of the 「Seongmyeonglon」, the viewpoints described in the pathology theory of 『Dongeuisusebowon』 were examined. In addition to 『Dongeuisusebowon』, we looked for contents related to “TuHyeonJilNeung” and “HoHyeonNagSeon” in Lee je-ma’s book 『Gyukchigo』 and 『Dongmuyugo』. Result: We have found that the meanings of the words “TuHyeonJilNeung” and “HoHyeonNagSeon” in the last article of 「Gwangjeseol」 are not limited to just the 「Gwangjeseol」, but contain the meaning of a topic that runs through the entire book. According to the 『Gyukchigo』 and 『Dongmuyugo』, the meaning of “TuHyeonJilNeung” is related to the “Sa-Bang-Il-Yog”, and the “Sa-Bang-Il-Yog” is the “ilsimjiyog” that prevents the practice of “Ji-Haeng”. This concept is the same as the concept of “Ji-Haeng” in 「Seongmyeonglon」, the first unit of 『Dongeuisusebowon』. Conclusion: It is considered that Lee je-ma wanted to emphasize the reason and mindset to do “Ji-Haeng” by writing the end of the 「Gwangjeseol」, which is the last part of 『Dongeuisusebowon』.

    Literature Review on Sasang Constitutional Medicine for Tumors through Database Search Seung-Yun Oh

    Seung-Yun Oh | 2020, 32(3) | pp.8~17 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    Objectives: The purpose of this review was to investigate constitutional medical research on tumors and to propose information for further research. Methods: The literature was investigated from Oriental medicine advanced searching integrated system, China national knowledge infrastructure, and PubMed. The searching terms were cancer, tumor, neoplasm, Sasang constitution, and so on. And studies were collected and analyzed into the three parts of distributions, treatments, and preventions. Results: The distribution and type of tumors were different depending on the type of Sasang constitution. The symptoms of a tumor can occur variously in all types of diseases or patterns. Preventing tumors and cultivating health should be considered all aspects of physical, mental, and social health in the Sasang constitutional concept of securing requisite energy of minor organs. Conclusions: The Sasang constitutional medicine for treating tumors should be focused on strengthening the constitutional healthy energy considering personal characteristics.

    Abstract PDF
    Objectives: In order to find out the relationship between the Eight Principle Pattern Identification of Cold-Heat, Deficiency-Excess and the Sasang constitution, we analyzed the clinical data from 500 women with menstrual pain and women without menstrual pain. Methods: In the previous study, the subject's information of Typology Complexion Pulse and Symptom was collected, and Eight Principle Pattern Identification was executed based on this. Later, the relationship between the Sasang constitution and the Eight Principle Pattern Identification was statistically analyzed. Results and Conclusion: 1. The obvious difference between the experimental group and the control group in the patterns of Cold-Heat and Deficiency-Excess is that patients who complain of menstrual pain do not maintain harmony with the yin-yang ratio, it can be said that the patterns of Cold-Heat and Deficiency-Excess can be a Identification standard that significantly obscures the condition of the disease. 2. There was a significant difference between the Sasang constitution and the Eight Principle Pattern Identification of Cold-Heat. There was no significant difference between the Sasang constitution and the Eight Principle Pattern Identification of Deficiency-Excess.

    Seung Ku Lee , Yoon, Dae Wui , Jong Yeol Kim and 5 other persons | 2020, 32(3) | pp.33~45 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    Object: Although Taeeum and Soyang constitutional types have bigger body shapes and higher body mass index values than those with the Soeum, the relationship between the Sasang constitutional type and bone mass density is controversial and the association of osteopenia and osteoporosis remains unknown. Therefore, we investigated the relationship between bone mineral density, osteopenia, and osteoporosis according to Sasang constitutional type. Methods: A total of 2,508 participants were included in this study. Among the study participants, 1,396 had Taeeum type, 276 had Soeum type, and 836 had Soyang type, respectively. The relationships to bone mass density, osteopenia, and osteoporosis in those with Sasang constitutional type were estimated using logistic and linear regression models. Results: Bone mass density was significantly higher in the order of Taeeum, Soyang, and Soeum group (p < 0.01). Soeum group in comparison with Taeeum or Soyang group was significantly associated with a high odds ratio for osteopenia and osteoporosis except in the hip and femoral neck in the comparison of Taeeum and Soeum group (p < 0.01). Moreover, the bone mass density of Soeum group decreased more rapidly as the age increased when compared with Taeeum and Soyang group. Conclusions: Our findings may contribute to the early prevention and management of high-risk individuals with poor bone mass density, osteopenia, and osteoporosis using Sasang constitution medicine.

    Min-jung Lee , MinYoung Park , HWANG MINWOO | 2020, 32(3) | pp.46~54 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    Introduction: This study aims to report a significant improvement of Sjögren’s syndrome patient with irritable bladder, diagnosed as ‘Soyangin chest-binding symptomatology’ based on Sasang medicine. Methods: The patient had treatment with ‘Dojeokganggi-tang’ and western medications. We evaluated the treatment outcome of Sjögren’s syndrome symptoms by using a numerical score of 0 to 10, based on the patient’s subjective discomfort of dry eye and dry mouth, and irritable bladder symptoms by recording the number of night urination every month. Results: Sjögren’s syndrome symptoms were significantly improved, and the number of night urination was decreased. After 41 weeks of treatment, the patient didn't have dry mouth any more and had only a little dry eye. The number of night urination was decreased from 3-4 times to once a night. Discussion: The patient diagnosed with Sjögren’s syndrome, treated with Dojeokganggi-tang and western medications for 41 weeks, showed a significant improvement in dry eye, dry mouth, and night urination compared to the first visit.

    Abstract PDF
    Objectives: To report an improved case with Taeeumin Mahwangjeongcheon-tang on the patient with chronic bronchitis caused by an inhalation injury. Methods: The patient had been suffered from cough, sputum, dyspnea, and chest discomfort for 15 years. He was diagnosed as Taeeumin Esophageal Cold Pattern and was given Mahwangjeongcheon-tang according to Sasang constitutional medical theory.
