1.     What is Sasang Constitution Type?

Lee Je-ma (1837-1900) is the founder of Sasang Constitution Type Medicine. It is the most creative and original medicine of Korea, and there is no such example even in China, Taiwan, Japan and anywhere else. Lee Je-ma was a philosopher and a medical expert living in the latter Yi(Chosun) Dynasty. He distinguished body types of mankind into four different categories based on the philosophy of Confucianism, which was absolutely different from the previous oriental medicine based on Yin and Yang. In Sasang Constitution Type Medicine, people have diverse appearances, personalities and biological & clinical characteristics, which govern what type of medical treatment has to be applied to each person. And as an original Korean clinic, it has an object of making people live in a harmonized way by understanding one’s own constitution type, enlarging the advantage of it, and supplementing its insufficiency. It also aims to make people have appropriate mindset and healthy social relationship, and also adapt proper lifestyle and foods which are matched with their own constitution types. And this will eventually lead them to prevention of possible diseases.

 

    Sasang Constitutional Medicine(四象醫學) is a Korean Creative Constitutional medicine by Je-ma Lee(李濟馬) of Yi(Chosun) Dynasty.

In Sasang constitutional Medicine human bings are classified in four constitutions :Taeyangin(
太陽人),Taeumin(太陰人), Soyangin(少陽人) and soeumin(少陰人).

And it is presents different ways to live and to treat diseases according to the constitution in general life.

There are four basic principles in Sasang Constitutional Medicine.

The first principles is affairs (
) - mind () - body ()- objects() ;

the second principle is heaven (
) - human () - nature () - order () ;

the third principle is the different congenital formation of organs :

and the last principle is moderation(

4.     설명: http://cfile201.uf.daum.net/image/154E17504F4F367505B388The origin of Sasang Constitution Type Medicine and “The Book of Changes”

When talking about Sasang medicine, people remind “The Book of Changes” first. In “The Book of Changes,” Yangeui(兩儀) came from The Great Absolute(太極) and Sasang(四象) came from Yangeui(兩儀), and eight signs of divination came from Sasang(四象). Lee Je-Ma explained it clearly in his philosophical book in “Bansungjam(反誠箴) of Kyuckchigo(格致藁).” The great absolute expresses mind(), Yangeui expresses body and mind(心身), sasang expresses work, mind, body and object(事心身物), work() has the start and the end(終始), mind() has quick and slow(緩急), body() has the first and the later(先後), and object has the original and the end(本末).  

 

 

5.     Sasang Constitution Medicine and Humanism, personality of joy, anger, sorrow and pleasure

Closely examining its theological background of Lee Je-Ma’s constitution medicine, it is absolutely different from Taoism of yin and yang. Lee Je-Ma thought about the Sasang Medicine based on humanism, which means the distinction of four constitutions was made based on each type’s personalities of joy, anger, sorrow and pleasure. And he also analyzed a disease’s improvement and deterioration based on personalities of joy, anger, sorrow and pleasure.

 

 

6.     Characteristics of Sasang Constitution Medicine

Sasang Constitution Medicine is regarded as an original Korean medicine and has characteristics like written below.  

 

1)    A medicine with a structure of four elements

In the book “Kyuckchigo”, Lee Je-Ma called The Great Absolute(太極) as mind(), Yangeui(兩儀) as mind and body(心身) and Sasang as work, mind, body and object(事心身物). Based on this, he explained a structure of four elements in space as 天人性命, a structure of four elements in social circumstance as 仁義禮智, 忠孝友悌, 士農工商, 田宅邦, a structure of four elements in a human body’s biology as 耳目鼻口, 肺脾肝腎, 頭肩腰臀, 臆臍腹, and a structure of four elements in a human’s constitutional type as 太陽人, 太陰人, 少陽人, 少陰人.

 

2)    A medicine focused on human beings

If the previous oriental medicines were started from a background of Taoism, Sasang constitution medicine is a medicine with a background of Confucianism.

 

 

3)    A medicine for treating body and mind

Different from the previous oriental medicines treating diseases only with medication and acupuncture, it brought “psychological stability” to realize a medical treatment on balance between body and mind. 

 

 

4)    Metaphysically demonstrating Medicine

If the previous medicines could be called as identical medicines, Sasang Constitution Medicine could be called as “Metaphysically Demonstrating Medicine” That is, it links unseen psychological phenomenon with physical phenomenon, and explains biological phenomenon of bodies in an easy and clear term.

 

 

5)    A Medicine presenting a new method of treatment

In Sasang Constitution Medicine, symptoms are shown based and focused on a person’s vigor, so even if people get same diseases, each constitution type can show different resistance toward the diseases, and Sasang constitution medicine followed this theology, treating patients. 

 

 

6)    A Medicine of Prevention in an ordinary life through Constitution Type Maintenance

Lee Je-Ma focused on cultivation of personality and made people search for the method in their ordinary lives.
