ABSTRACT

Objectives The purpose of this study was to enhance the understanding of Yin and Yang poison by examining and comparing the views of Je-ma Lee and the medicine scholars before Je-ma Lee, including Zhang Zhongjing. Methods We examined and compared the contents related to Yin and Yang poison in 『Essential Prescriptions from the Golden Cabinet (金匱要略)』, 『Donguibogam (東醫寶鑑)』, and 『Donguisusebowon (東醫壽世保元)』. Results and Conclusion In 『Essential Prescriptions from the Golden Cabinet』, Zhang Zhongjing described the symptoms of Yin and Yang poison respectively, but could not suggested each prescription. In 『Donguibogam』, there were several prescriptions for Yin and Yang poison, respectively. In 『Donguisusebowon』, Yang poison belonged to the Soyangin and Taeeumin disease, Yin poison belonged to the Soeumin disease. Je-ma Lee emphasized that interior heat, which has grown suddenly should be controlled quickly for treatment of Yang poison in Soyangin and Taeeumin. And, in order to treat Yin poison caused by chronic course in Soeumin, Ginseng should be used a lot to help the Yang energy.
