ABSTRACT

1. Objectives This study intends to identify the contents of Sasang Constitutional Diet through a book by Lee Je-Ma, to review the implied contents, and to analyze the influence of this information and principles on the formation of Eight Constitutional Diet. 2. Results and Conclusions 1) The Sasang Constitutional Diet was systematically established by Lee Je-Ma, and is composed by the principles of ‛food is on different from medicine(食藥同源)’, principles of ‘reinforcement of one organ(一臟補强)’, principles of ‘should not be mixed(混用不可)’ and principles of ‘food abstinence’(飮食節制)’. 2) The Eight Constitutional Diet has already been studied before 1962, and “Classification Of Constitutional Regimen and Diet”, which recorded harmful and good food, has been used in clinical practices since 1962. The basis that can transform Eight Constitutional Diet into Sasang Constitutional Diet can be found in the fact that the Eight Constitution is based on the Sasang constitution. However, because clinical research on the relationship between 8 constitution and Sasang constitution is still sketchy, directly transforming the current Eight Constitutional Diet into Sasang Constitutional Diet seems unreasonable.
