that's a good question. Although we write this in tumor papers, textbooks, and medical records, there is always a feeling of moving a"template", and people who have written about it know it in their own minds. Yes, the real theory of traditional Chinese medicine in the end how to recognize tumors, and malignant tumors? I have been thinking about this issue, talking about some of my current understanding, casually talking, inconclusive.
I suggest that when you look at the Internal Classic, the first level should be seen in classical Chinese, the second level should be seen as historical anecdotes, and the third level should be seen as medical theory. If you look at the so-called"disease energy"recorded in the Internal Classic, it is the manifestation of the disease. If it is not for objective symptoms, catharsis, vomiting, benefit, or abnormal physical signs such as swelling, sores, fever, sound, etc., if it is not subjective symptoms, pain, arthralgia, convulsion, braving, and so on, are macroscopic.
<Later generations developed some etiology, such as recognizing that some fever may be caused by epidemic gas. However, the occurrence and development of the disease, that is, a set of"physiology and pathology", is still basically under the theoretical system of the internal meridian era, and the five Zang organs, six viscera, meridians and collaterals have basically not changed. Perhaps the specific understanding of"Qi"and"blood"has been interpreted differently due to the evolution of characters and the accumulation of knowledge and experience.
therefore, judging from this context of development, whether Chinese medical theory can produce the concept of"malignant tumor"without being influenced by the outside world, I think it may at most describe the degree of"strong, solid, and multi-dead people."or will it disassemble it to the macro performance, and is unlikely to develop to the pathological, molecular, genetic level. Therefore, can the theory of traditional Chinese medicine explain the concept of malignant tumor born in modern medical theory? However, in essence, there is no innovation in the theory of traditional Chinese medicine in the past few decades, so the understanding of malignant tumor, in addition to qi stagnation, blood stasis and phlegm coagulation, yin tumor, yang tumor and so on, as well as the characteristics of TCM syndrome differentiation during radiotherapy and chemotherapy, there is still a lack of TCM tumor theory system. Look at the officials do not pat bricks, of course, I know that there are many seniors and experts in this field, but I hope that my colleagues can open their eyes and settle their hearts to develop the theoretical system and treatment of TCM tumors.
as to whether it can be expressed on the pulse, in my personal experience, it is possible. Do not need to touch a lot of patients, just need to experience two mornings out-patient clinic, about 80 patients, in front of their existing diagnosis to feel the pulse, you can probably know what the sense of absence after operation is, the astringent pulse feeling of the patients with signs of tumor recurrence, facing the position of the disease. Now I can feel the general trend of nodule and body tumor load at my primary level. Pay attention to learning everywhere. Therefore, it is very valuable to feel the pulse to detect the early recurrence and metastasis of the tumor. Yes, of course, SCI will not include such articles, I know too much about the stubborn prejudice of Westerners. But it is a pity for patients not to develop valuable things in their own medicine if they live in their eyes and prejudices. What is more regrettable is that many people in the Chinese medicine industry also think that these are worthless and the scientific research funds will not subsidize them.
say so much first.
