Basic Ideas of Traditional Chinese Medicine

 

■ Patient’s Constitution Level

The patient’s constitution level shows the body’s power to fix an illness.

The definition varies between Japanese herbal remedies and Chinese medicine (Chinese herbal remedies), but here we will continue to look the thought of Japanese herbal remedies.

 

According to the “Medical Scriptures of Traditional Chinese Medicine”,

      “Weak” is a condition of the weakening of the physical strength to resist an illness.

      “Strong” is a condition of the actively working physical strength to resist an illness.

 

Generally, the theory used is that people of tenacious physique are “strong”, and people of frail muscle weakness are “weak”.
However, the ordinary constitution when one becomes sick does not necessarily correspond to the patient’s constitution level.

 

As one aim, I have summarized the differences of the patient’s constitution level.

  Weak Power Strong Power
Skin Bad color Good color
Muscles Weak Nicely toned muscles
Weariness Often wear Seldom weary
Eating Seldom hungry Eat often
Sweating Sweating No sweating
Defecation Repetition of diarrhea, and or diarrhea and constipation Easily constipated

 

In the formulation of herbal remedies,

      to “Weak Power”, the selection of medicine that will protect the warm supplement, and

      to “Strong Power”, the selection of medicine that will attack and continue to eliminate the cause of the illness.
