Symptoms Of Pathologic Symptoms of Lung Is Treated.

By Namwook Cho L.Ac.

It is not simple to answer the question. Because the original text, which was written by students of Master Saam, later the master’s death. Also, the most disturbing thing about the original text to one who wants to study is missing or insufficient explanations of why certain acupoints were used to treat a symptom.

Unfortunately, not much information has not been introduced in the States. Acupuncture Times will introduce an easier way to understand the theories to apply the technique.

The article referred to lectures of Oh, Brandon Sae-Joon L.Ac. and the book “Wulo Saamohangchimbub” in Korean and my clinical experiences.

The explanation regarding how to apply Saam acupuncture is based on information on the chief complaints of your patients. From my experience, the easiest way to apply Saam acupuncture is using the acupoints formula of Saam according to the symptom.

Although there are many ways to diagnose techniques to apply Saam acupuncture, inexperienced acupuncturists will find it hard to understand and apply the techniques.

The first one is to study complaints that lead to you applying a Lung tonifying formula composed of tonifying LU9, SP3 and sedating HT8, LU10. The meaning of the formula is tonifying earth points from Taeum(Taiyin, Chinese pronunciation) meridians of hands and feet, which share the same characteristics of earth containing enough water. Suppressing the fire that could easily dry the water from the earth and heat negatively affects the lungs, which enjoys cool temperature and enough alveoli membrane moisture.

Most of the symptoms are from lung qi deficiency or pain located on the lung meridian, which could indicate using a lung tonifying formula.

Here are the symptoms that need to be treated with the lung tonifying formula:

  • Stroke due to lung qi deficiency.
  • One who tends to have many thoughts constantly.
  • Symptoms from blood stagnation.
  • Frequently feels heat sensation and has cold sweat.
