  • Body constitution research in Korean traditional medicine adopt the diagnosis and treatment theory of "image-differentiation[body constitution differentiation, disease differentiation] in combination with syndrome differentiation diagnostic model and symptoms and signs of herbal property belong to image" as its core, which is key national medical science research project of State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine, the project brought up 4 key scientific problem ? body constitution differentiation theory, correlation theory of body constitution and disease, body constitution adjustable theory and symptoms and signs of herbal property belong to image theory. In body constitution pathology, it brought up "correlation between body constitution and symptoms", "differentiation between body constitution and symptoms" which increase the diagnostic level and diagnostic accuracy rate. In the condition of pathology, it obviously has low reliability according to body constitution differentiation, sometimes happen the description not comply with body constitution and disease symptoms, which lead to decrease the clinic diagnostic and treatment level, treatment effect not satisfying too. Now taking 4 key scientific achievement as criterion to illustrate the body constitution and disease symptoms.

  • The purposes of this study were to investigate eating attitudes and food Preferences among female college students by their body constitution types, such as Tae-yang, Tae-eum, So-yang, and So-eum by using the more accurate and objective classification method of the Sasang Constitutional Medicine. People with Tae-eum (51.6%)body constitution type showed the highest percentage level, followed by So-yang (33.0%) and So-eum (15.4%)body constitution types. In respect to the taste preference, people with Tae-eum and So-yang body constitution types tended to preferred spicy taste and So-eum body constitution type preferred sweet taste. In the satisfaction and interests toward the body shape, people with Tae-eum body constitution types showed the lowest satisfaction levels for their body shapes and showed the highest interests levels for their body shapes. In regard to eating attitudes, So-eum body constitution type state that they eat food relatively slowly. Tae-eum and So-yang body constitution type state that they eat food until they feel full. Tae-eum body constitution type state they normally overeat when they got stressed. The food preferences for the food group, there is no significant difference body constitution types with regard to food preferences.

  • This study aims to analyze the difference of eating habits in accordance with Sasang Constitution types. For this study, 249 persons were interviewed and surveyed, classified into Taeyang(8.4%), Soyang (19.3%), Taeeum(26.5%), and Soeum(45.8%). As for taste preference, people of the Taeeum and Soyang body constitution types tended to prefer spicy tastes while those of the Taeyang and Soeum body constitution types preferred sweet tastes. For eating habits, people of the Taeeum and Soyang body constitution types stated that they eat food relatively quickly and eat food until they feel full. They also said they normally overeat when they get stressed. The eating habits for the four groups, there was a significant difference(p<0.05) between body constitution types and eating habits. We hope that our research will provide the food service industry with helpful and new information.

  • The study was conducted for the purpose of finding out an objective classification method for the Sasang Constitutional medicine, which divides people into 4 groups of constitution and presents comprehensively physiology, pathology, diagnosis, theraphy and recuperation fit to each constitution. Questionnaire of Sasang Constitution collected during 9 months from March 1995 to November 1995. For the purposes of this study, the collected data were analyzed by crosstabs, variation analysis, discrimination analysis. The analyzing program was SPSS PC+V4.0. The results were as follows : 1. QSCC consists of the authorized questions studied by te oriental medicine specialists based on "four groups" given the diagnosis of Sasang Constitution Classification and variation analysis by scores of body constitution. 2. When human's body constitution is classified on the basis of QSCC scores of body constitutions and classified by the absolute size, group cases correctly classified was So-Yang-In 17.3%, Tae-Em-In 26.4%, So-Em-In 74.2%, Tae-Yang-In 100%. However, the number of examples are rare. Average percent of "group" cases correctly classified was 39.3%. 3. When human's body constitution is classified on the basis of QSCC scores of body constitutions and clasified by the relative size, group cases correctly classified was So-Yang-In 40.5%, Tae-Em-In 29.1%, So-Em-In 49.2%, Tae-Yang-In 100%. However, the number of examples are rare. Average percent of "group" cases correctly classified was 39.6%. 4. If the diagnosis of body constitution applies to the people after discrimination formula applies to them before the scores of body constitution is correctly analyzed, group cases correctly classified was So-Yang-in 50.5%, Tae-Em-In 36.9%, So-Em-In 55.9%, Tae-Yang-In 100%. However, the number of examples are rare. Average percent of "group" cases correctly classified was 44.03%. 5. As discrimination formula is applied and analyzed based on the questions of higher percent of reaction freqency, So-Yang-in 61.4%, Tae-Em-In 48.8%, So-Em-In 62.0%. Average percent of group cases correctly classified was 54.91% and it was percent increased compared to chance probability. 6. Therefore, it comes to the conclusion if we utilize QSCC, we are able to predict Sasang Constitution.

  • A radial artery pulse wave is well known as a good mans to diagnose human body condition in th field of Chinese medical science. Information about constitution as well as organs can be obtained by detecting the artery pulse wave. Recently, the information about the human body constitution may be utilized in accelerating the recovery process of the patient on the basis of comprehensive diagnosis. A radial artery pulse wave is considered as one of promising means in examining the human body constitution. Since the examination has been conducted by the feeling of finger, the diagnosis may occasionally have uncertainty or fatal error. In this paper, a new measuring system is suggested and developed to examine the pattern of a pulse wave correctly. The system is composed of four pressure vessels, pressure sensors and air supplying pumps. One of them is utilized for appropriately pressing the radial artery, three of them for detecting pressure change in several mmHg level. The detected data is shown and discussed.

  • In oriental medicine, human being is classified into four groups according to their body constitution status (;tae-yang, tae-eum, so-yang, and so-eum persons) considering the differences in function of internal organs and characteristics. Four body constitution, called 'sa-sang' has been recognized as an important factor for diagnosing the patients before madical teratment. Yet, the criteria to divide body constitutions or its scientific principle are not clearly defined. As an initial effort to elucidate biological priciples underlying four body constitution groups, we studied genetic variations among three constitution groups (tae-eum, so-yang, and so-eum persons). Noting distinct responses to ingested food and administered drugs among three groups, SNPs and haplotype experiments were performed in 2D6, 2C9, and 1A2 DNA regions of the cytochrome P450 gene. Significant variability in SNPs types was found in 2D6 region. Moreover, haplotyping in 2D6 region showed relatively high occurrences of haplotype 3 and 5 in so-eum person, haplotype 6 in tae-eum person, and hyplotype 1 in so-yang person. These results indicate that individuals with different body constitutions respond differently to ingested food and drugs, which might reflect constitution-specific genetic background. The genetic approach would therefore be useful to reveal intrinsic differences among four constitution body groups in the responsiveness to various drugs and external stimulations to human body.

  • After studing on the type of Bi(肥) and Su(痩) of Body in 'Yellow Emperior's Nei-Ching', I reached the following conclusions; 1. The specific charactor of bi(肥) and su(痩) were explained in table 1. 2. The specific charactor of gi(脂), ko(膏) and youk(肉) were explaned in table 2. 3. Obserbing the type of bi(肥) and su(痩) by the view of YinYang(陰陽), bi(肥) belongs to Yin(陰) and su(痩) belongs to Yang(陽). Also the each of bi(肥) and su(痩) could obserbed by the view of YinYang(陰陽). The type of su(痩) easily becomes to yanghea(陽虛) because chi(氣) easely becomes to exhaust also easely becomes to yinhea(陰虛) because blood(血) easely becomes to exhaust. So the outer of body is cold, the inner of body is hot. The type of bi(肥) easely causes YinYang(陰陽) to exceed because blood(血) easely becomes to black and turbid(血黑以濁), chi(氣) easely becomes to rough and slow(氣澁以遲). So the outer of body is hot, the iner of body is cold 4. Obserbing the type of bi(肥) and su(痩) by the view of viscera, in view of upper and lower(上下觀點) su(痩) is yang(陽) so heart and lung belongs to su(痩) bi(肥) is yin(陰) so liver and kidney belongs In bi(肥). in view of inner and outer(內外觀點) su(痩) is inner(內) so heart 3I1d liver belongs In su(痩) bi(肥) is outer(外) so lung and kidney belongs to bi(肥). 5. Obserbing the type of bi(肥) and su(痩) by the view of body constitution(體質), partially body constitution was divided into gi(脂), ko(膏) and youk(肉), entirely there was OhtaeinLon(五態人論) and four constitutional medicine(四象醫學) I thing that taeyangin(太陽人) and soyangin(少陽人) belong to su(痩), taeyinin(太陰人) and soyinin(少陰人) belong to bi(肥).

  • Jang Nam's opinion is that Yin-Yang of pathogenic factors change following to the Yin and Yang of human body. As the pathogenic factors injure the human body, the conditions of diseases become different to the inborn constitution of human. Therefore the main principles of remedy set up the diagnosis on the YINㆍYANG & the strengthㆍweakness of constitution. This diagnotic points are body formal distinction, flesh hardness and softness, face color and form, skin color. Moreover he arranges the 4 type of the hole-body constitution based on the Seop-Gye's the guide of clinical differentiation of syndromes(臨證指南); Yang-Strength and Yin-weakness(陽盛陰虛), Yin ㆍYang-strength(陰陽具盛), Yin-Strength and Yang-weakness(陰盛陽虛), YinㆍYang-weakness(陰陽兩虛).

  • Objectives : Written by Yoongdongri in the 18th century Chosun, Chochangkyeul is a book that specially deals in Ungi. Yoon understood a person's body constitution by taking into factor the person's birth year, and used this information to determine his Ungi type, and understood his disease mechanism. Methods : Following the study on the first part of Chochangkyeul, named Ungiyeonron, the paper tries to study the book's second part, called Yongyakgwon. The book's core messages are summarized upon a thorough inspection. Results & Conclusions : Yoondongri was a highly-acclaimed doctor in the 18th century Chosun, and also an Ungi practitioner who utilized the theory of Ungi in his clinical practices. His practices were mainly based on the prescription of Ungi found in Chenwuze's Sanyinfang, coupled with almost all parts of Donguibogam's Husebang. He had an extensive clinical experience which helped him describe his methods of quickly responding to the side effects that sometimes occur due to misuse of medicine. Such detailed descriptions are never found in past medical books, which gives Yoon's book a great level of historical importance. Yongyakgwon divides the scripts between Gabsin, Muui, Byungye, Gyungjeong, and Yimgi in accordance with the theory of Ounhabgi, and also introduces treatments based on Yukisachun. Jangbupasuyak also introduces about six external organs and six internal organs with relation to treating wind medicine, treating heat medicine, treating cold medicine, treating dry dampness medicine, dryness-moistening medicine, pulling meridian medicine. All of these can be applied to patients easily.
