Returning origin, Clinical relation, Absorption new Knowledge,Thinking of Improvement and Reconstruction of Acupuncture Theory System
In early 2000 years ago, acupuncture knowledge systems in endo-meridians period has been formed. Endo-meridians has discoursed acupuncture points, needle tools, needling and moxibustion, application ranges, and needling operational approaches, essential elements in impact on needling effects and closely related in acupuncture meridians system, fundamental principles and etc.
Every dynasties medical specialists had contributed to acupuncture knowledge systems level in differences, enriched acupuncture books content. Although acupuncture moxibustion science refinement, sublimation, formed a completed, independent subject, need contributes to our nation advanced education of TCM. It plays important roles in different textbooks edition of acupuncture moxibustion science as for acupuncture and moxibustion theorey systems systematically, and in order to master learning acupuncture knowledge points, and promote acupuncture applications.
Underwent decades of clinical practicing, more and more practitioners witnessed that theorey systems are used broadly in studies, much more influenced by “adult pulse” theoretical systems, especially in awareness of illness, basically, put“adult pulse”awareness on illness into acupuncture, take applicable the medical dialectic treatments into applied for acupuncture theoretical systems square holes. Leads to disconnect phenomenon obviously. In particular, was bound to thinking pattern, influenced treatment range exploration, and treatment effect improved constantly.
With development of acupuncture internationalized, more and more people who are interested in acupuncture subject.The depth and width of expansion, many clinical acupuncture application methods were gained modern medicine, modern sciences research, among of mechanisms and principles were revealed. And produced a new conception of traditional acupuncture methods, and identified clinical adaption ranges, simplified usages.Those methods, however, were originates by acupuncture, theoretical explanations has differentiated from traditional acupuncture theories, in particular, is different from “adult pulse” systematics, for example “Dry Needle” treatment method, which is a modern needling application of acupuncture “living acupoint”, even application needle tools, needling methods, puncture sites are similar with traditional living acupoint. But, begin from anthropotomy to handle, clarified treatment indications, simulation points and etc, and built up different from traditional acupuncture theory of explanation systems. Therefore thought it didn’t belongs to acupuncture any more.
We think that any subject has constantly development progress, icon is not means time, but is for subject with answers and refinement, in development progress, will cause of “form” transformation. However, happens on science revolution, creates division of subjects, he also develop in basic and original subject.
Although compared with physics, chemistry, mathematics, modern medicine between in the early age of subject, it has changed beyond recognition, subject still has originates. According to new findings, it is essential that how to refine and reconstruct this theoretical systems.
For that reason, improvement and reconstruction theorey system, it has already vitally to develop constantly. Currently, how to improve and reconstruct theoretical systems it has not formed yet. As for highly consensus frame, I think “Return origin, Basis on Clinical,Absorption new knowledge”is essential element of acupuncture title.
“Returning origin”, firstly, It seems respectful that for ancient people of inventions and discoveries fully, and evokes as traditional theories awe. Secondly, it is necessary to understand that acupuncture adequately and obeys the self-acupuncture development rules totally.
Seeing acupuncture as a essential part of Chinese medicine, however, due to different intervention methods. Among of maintenance health and access to prevent and cure illnesses of methods and mechanism aspects, vary significantly from acupuncture and “adult's pulse”; thirdly, there is significant practice was proved by later generations,which is based on acupuncture knowledge systems To build up acupuncture theorey frame. For example, in The Yellow Emperor’s Canon of Internal Medicine (Huang Di Nei Jing) period, it has formed acupuncture knowledge systems: acupoints, meridians, needling cure for mental health, acupuncture timing and etc.
Firstly, based on clinical, It is requested that clinical efficacy treats as orientation, capturing acupuncture theorey systems tightly, which is a powerful tool to lead clinical practicing.And help with after-prediction, theory is to serve for practice; Secondly, It is requested that treats clinical practice as core part. Summarizing, refining and sublimating produced by acupuncture theory frame as a essential element.
For instance, from standpoints of acupuncture body surface points in analysis and clarification aspects, the distinctions among make connection with different acupuncture and moxibustion points methods’s are important elements.
As for absorbing new knowledge, above all, according to clinical practice, it is requested that take advantage of modern technology concepts, methods, from different perceptions. Undertaking intensively, researching in details, improving acupuncture methods constantly, enhancing its effects, solving clinical problems. Second, to learn "Internal Classic"methods, put many subject scientific researches integrated into Chinese medicine acupuncture systems timely. Summarizing and combing include in acupuncture mechanism, biology basis and etc. Research basis outcomes, and will take what has proved detailed knowledge supplied. And improved-acupuncture frame into essential elements, it can make the width and depth of traditional acupuncture theory system expansion.
As far as improvement and reconstruction of acupuncture theory system, above all, it is necessary to aware of the importance and necessity. To emancipate thinkings, and keep up with time, need “Statue of the ancient not old”, and respect and aware of ancient people’s discoveries fully.Moreover witnessing practical accumulations and deepen science researches, acupuncture knowledge system were gained explanations, which including constant nurturing, newing, more reasonable, and combined with clinical applications.
It is a systematic project, which is conscientiously combing, understanding intensively and screening carefully outcome. It is necessary to have scientific attitude and combine with more subjects, and try to use “modern language” to explain and elaborate the theory system.
