ABSTRACT

1. Objectives The object of this thesis is to find the basis on why Jejo(蠐螬) was assigned as a Taeumin medicine, and to understand Taeumin edema. 2. Methods Dongyisusebowon ‘Shinchukbon’, ‘Gabobon’, ‘Chobonkwun’, other related Sasang Constitutional Medicine(SCM) books, herbal medicine books such as Bonchokangmok, and etc. were compared and researched. 3. Results & Conclusions (1) In Sasang Constitutional Medicine, edema is seen as a critical condition. The first cause of edema in Taeumin is fatigue, a condition where the flow of Qi and Fluid Qi is stagnated. Secondly, edema is caused as Taeeumin is mentally stressed(勞心焦思) and he/she is unable to accomplish his/her plans over many trials or as when they find pleasure in striving for greed. When Lungs which is Incline & Small Viscera(偏小之臟) in Taeumin decreases, it diminishes Real Count of Longevity(命脈實數) which leads to edema formation. (2) Perspective of Human Nature & Character(心性學) and Regimen(養生法) became included gradually in the treatment methods and prescription of edema in Taeumin as Dongyisusebowon was revised over time. The revisions also lead to more diversity in prescriptions. (3) Jejo didn't appear in Dongyisusebowon ‘Chobonkwun’ and ‘Gabobon’. It was first presented in ‘Shinchukbon’ as a medicine to treat edema in Taeumin. (4) Jejo have effects of easing clumps. Also it has a strong radiating ability(發散力) which induces perspiration to treat diseases. Finally Jejo is used to remove Takki(濁氣) by utilizing powerful Exhale Gathering Qi contained in it.
