Is Modern Chinese Medicine “Slow Langzhong”?
“One dose knows two doses already” is a description of the effectiveness of traditional Chinese medicine by the ancients, which means that the effect and cure are extremely fast, which is very different from the impression of traditional Chinese medicine “Slow Langzhong” in modern society.
Is it because the ancients exaggerated, or is it that the level of traditional Chinese medicine is not as good as it is today?
The author recently encountered a chronic urticaria patient with a medical history of one year. The initial use of ephedrine was ineffective. After changing the method of taking the drug, the effect was still astonishing.
Patient Li Yongqing, male, 33 years old, from Nanjie Village, Jiexiu City.
The cause of the onset was that the water tank was cleaned in the winter of 2008. The symptoms were rash on the hands in the case of wind and cold.
Initial diagnosis on December 24, 2009, the left vein was fine, the right vein was floating, the tongue was white and the tongue was dark.
Usually sweat less, dry mouth is not bitter, want to drink hot, can not drink cold drinks, drink cold, abdominal discomfort.
It is cold inside and outside: do not want to drink cold, white fur is cold inside, dry mouth is cold drink stop, water and liquid must not be normalized.
Su Khan produced less, and invaded in winter and cold water, the table is cold and clear.
The right pulse floats as righteousness and has a tendency to resist evil. However, it suffers from insufficient strength. Due to its evidence and treatment, it is treated with ephedra fusiforme Asarum Tangyuan prescription, ephedra 9g, aconite 9g, asarum 6g, 4 servings.After opening, simmer for a long time for more than 120 minutes. Take the liquid medicine twice and take it warmly. After the medicine is warmed, the body heats up and gets slightly sweaty. It is expected to heal quickly. Do not take the remaining medicine after sweating.
At the second consultation on December 28, 2009, the patient complained of no fever, no sweat, and was invalid.
The diagnosis of the pulse syndrome was the same as before, and the treatment of Mahuang Tangyuan Fang plus Aconite Asarum was strengthened.
Ephedra 18g, Guizhi 12g, Almond 12, Licorice 6g, Aconite 9g, Asarum 6g, 5 servings.
Instructed to cook for more than 120 minutes, the first serving was divided into 3 servings, taken every two hours, warmed after the drug, and stopped after sweating.
If it is not effective, take the second dose, divided into 2 doses, and take it every other hour. If you get sweaty, stop taking it. If it is not effective, continue to shorten the medication interval. Take 2 to 3 doses a day.
One week later, on January 4, 2010, the patient made three consultations. The patient complained that the disease was more than ten out of ten, and there were two pills left.
The detailed medication situation is that the patient works during the day, takes medication at night, and takes the first medication on the first night.
The next night, from 9 pm to 1 am the next day, 2 drinks were taken within 4 hours, 4 doses were taken, the electric mattress opened at low temperature overnight, and the body sweated all night.
After getting up the next day, he found that his symptoms had been lost.
After stopping the drug observation for 5 days, there was no recurrence of the condition, and he gladly came to sue.
Symptoms are only a little chill on the back of the middle section of the fingers, and sweating is not much.
On January 13, 2010, everything was fine during the return visit, and I was instructed to take more ginger and brown sugar water in order to sweat a little.
From the above cases, we can see that if not only the prescription of the prescription is verified in the clinical certificate, but also the method of taking the medicine is emphasized, “one dose knows two doses” is not unattainable.
In a nutshell, there are three points of enlightenment: Do not overdo it, safety first.
The great doctor of the Tang Dynasty, Sun Simiao, said that “human life is of paramount importance, and there is precious money.”
Zhong Jingshu repeatedly emphasizes that “after taking the medicine without stopping, it is not necessary to do everything”, in order to avoid the medical injuries mentioned in many places in his book, not only can not get older, but also bring new diseases, and even hurt lives.situation.
Such as “one who is sweating, take it after stopping.
If re-served, sweating and dying of the sun, then deficiency, bad wind, irritability, and can’t sleep “(38 Daqinglong Fang Note).
After prescribing, the author will inform the patient that after taking the medicine, do not take the rest of the medicine, stop the observation, or communicate with the doctor in a timely manner. After the medicine is prescribed, tell the patient what needs to be taken after taking the medicine is a prerequisite for rapid results.
Because you want the medicine to take effect quickly, you must prescribe a powerful medicine.
The ancients said that “if you want to use its advantages, you must first know its disadvantages,” so it is important and necessary to emphasize that “after taking effect, do not take the rest of the medicine.”
In addition, Jiu Jian is also for safety. According to the research, Fang Zhongfu and Asarum can remove toxicity and retain active ingredients. Therefore, the author’s decoction methods are Han cauldron, Jiu Jian, and one-time decoction.Adverse reactions.
Governance, to the degree of knowledge, after the service promoted.
The treatment is to get rid of the disease. Under the condition of correct diagnosis, there is no expected treatment effect and no adverse reactions. The patient feels warm and uncomfortable as if he did not take medicine.
In this case, the conventional method of taking the medicine once a day is doomed to fail to take effect quickly, and failing to take effect quickly may sometimes delay the treatment timing.
“Su Wen · Yin Yang Ying Xiang Da Lun” said, “The evil wind is here, and the disease is like wind and rain.”
Therefore, those who are good at treating their fur, secondly to cure the skin, secondly to cure the six crests, and secondly to treat the five internal organs.
Those who treat the five internal organs are also half dead and half alive.”That is to warn future generations to seize the opportunity of treatment.
The first day of the second visit of the attractive patient is the same as that of the second day. There is no response on the first day, and the great effect on the second day indicates that the “promote” and “know as the degree” are importantSex.
“Taking knowledge as a degree” is found in the post-note of 247 Maziren Pills in Treatise on Febrile Diseases. Zhi means 128 pages in the Concise and Practical Dictionary of Febrile Diseases. It is interpreted as: the meaning of healing.It is more in line with what analysts mean. “Knowing as the degree” means that you don’t need to add it after taking effect, or you don’t have to take it anymore.
If the pills are not effective, it needs to be “gradually increased, and the degree of knowledge is taken.” If the decoction is not effective, it is necessary to “after take a small dose to promote it . take one dose, and if the disease is still there, take it even more .Three doses.
Wu Jutong referred to Yin Qiaosan’s service method in “Distinguishing of the Illness of the Sickness” as “for those who are seriously ill, take it at about two o’clock, take it three times a day, take it one night . for those who are sick, take it again.
“It can be said that those who are good at learning Zhongjing also.
When talking about Mahuang decoction in “Yizong Jinjian”, he said that “the quack worker does not know the system to sweat in warmth, if it does not sweat in warmth, it is not serious”, which means that if it is not warm, it will not be able to get up.Very powerful divergent effect.
In the appeal case, the patient slept in the quilt with an electric mattress after taking the medicine, which achieved excellent warm coverage, which is one of the reasons for its rapid effect.
Zhang Shanlei, a modern Chinese medical practitioner, said in Materia Medica: “Ephedra sweats, and it must be warm and warm, and it will start to sweat, without warming and not sweating.
“The ephedrine used in the appeal case is the prescription contained in” Treatise on Febrile Diseases “, also known as Jingfang. The ancients said that the Jingfang used correctly, and there was indeed a speed of” covering the cup and getting better. “Not fast, often because we haven’t learned enough.
This requires us to study both the typhoid and the scientific connotations of the typhoon theory and the methods of using it.
