ABSTRACT

The Garlic having antibiosis is added to the most cuisine and used to treat dysentery and diarrhea for So-um-in(少陽人). The fact that the garlic, a Kind of Hun-chae, has warm and thermal characteristics couId be proved by a natural ecoIgical action of a fIy, Delia antiqua Meigen. OriginalIy San(蒜) designated Sosan(小蒜), a native species in Korea. But as Daesan(garlic)(大蒜) was imported, it meant both of Sosan(小蒜) and Daesan(大蒜). Now it means only Daesan(大蒜). This process of change of meaning was reviewed by focusing on the Dong-ui-bo-gam(東醫寶鑑). The San-20-mae(蒜二十枚) appearing in the Dangun mythology(檀君神話) should be interpreted not to 'garlic 20 piece(마늘 20개)' but to 'Dal-lae 20 roots(달래 20뿌리)'. It is possible to explain that the hibernant bear compared with the active tiger overcame the animality and the bestiality with perseverance in the dark cave so that it could be transformed to a human at the 21stday, the culmination number of Yang(陽). The garlic decame an abstaining food at sacrificial rituals because it arouses the sexual desire and excites person,s mind. High dose of raw garlic may cause harmful side effects in So-yang-in(少陽人) and Tae-um-in(太陰人) having a thermal characteristic.
