As the COVID-19 pandemic becomes endemic, ‘Global Governance’ is also moving in the direction of restoring everyday life while ‘restoring mental health and maintaining welfare and social order’.
Here, mental health oriental medicine presents prescriptions and theories in the physiology of oriental medicine structure-mechanical of the soul, the body, medicine, white, and geo functions of human life for thousands of years, and the research system of oriental pathology, and shows this in clinical practice as ‘body and mind’ I can play a positive role as much as I have done.
In oriental medicine, the essences of life phenomena are in a state of movement, and are differentiated to generate, promote, integrate, suppress, and calm force in the process of spontaneous self-physiological metabolism. recovery.
In other words, even if mutations occur, the risk faced by all members associated with the social heavenly response is that if harmony and balance of vital activities is maintained, the disease does not occur due to regulation self-metabolism, but if the harmony is broken, the disease is not cured, it is Lee
Therefore, the oriental medicine of mental health, which is based on the unitary integrity of ‘body-body’ as the subject of life phenomena, deals with individual physiology and individual pathology that it can do.
In this way, even in the post-COVID-19 era, mental health oriental medicine can contribute to the happy life of mankind by ultimately preventing and treating diseases if it specializes in innovative technology development projects with epidemiological treatment theories structurally on a human basis. life.
The oldest middle school girl supported her pale-faced mother and entered the clinic with her younger brother. “Please save my mother. I can’t even eat at all, but at home, all I do is scream and cry day and night. I think he will die after that,” he cried.
The patient also said in a weak voice, “I have been in the hospital for several months and have been prescribed antidepressants, but my insomnia, headache, and chest pain are not improving at all. What should I do? ?”
After examining the palpebral plexus, make eye contact with the patient and stabilize him.
Oriental Doctor: When did these symptoms start?
Patient: My body has not improved since I gave birth to my late son, and since last year it has gotten worse. These days, I don’t even want to live (good tears up).
Oriental doctor: (To the worried brother and sister) Mom, I’ll take care of you, would you like to stay outside for a while?
Eldest daughter: Take good care of my mother (tearfully and takes her younger brother out).
Doctor of Oriental Medicine: Five to six years have already passed since the youngest child was born.
Patient: Yes. To have a son, I have quite a long distance with my second daughter. It was difficult after giving birth to the youngest, but my husband doesn’t recognize me. He comes home late every day, whether he’s working or having an affair. Everything is hard and I want to die.
Doctor of Oriental Medicine: It’s really hard to raise three siblings and take care of the house, right?
Patient: My stamina is not what it used to be, and I can’t do anything anymore. My girls in middle school also have to support me with their studies, but I feel sorry for them when they cry because of me. I get upset when I see my youngest son in nursery crying all the time, and now I get angry.
Doctor of Oriental Medicine: Your husband must be very busy with outside work.
Patient: Being on a business trip, it seems like there are a lot of things to take care of, but these days, I come home late every day and go to bed when I come back tired .
Doctor of Oriental Medicine: There are also late children, and the husband seems to be working harder for the family.
Patient: (with angry expression) But before, we spoke very kindly. Unlike my father, who was particularly strict with me as a daughter, my husband loved me so much, so I married him because I liked that attitude.
Doctor: You must be very angry with your husband.
Patient: There is not one word of ‘thank you for your hard work’ for me, who is sick of raising children and keeping house. After work, I get angry when I see my husband laughing and playing with his youngest son without paying attention to his daughters. When I see my younger brother in the countryside of Gyeongsang-do, I am so upset that my father, who always had a smile, overlaps.
Doctor of Oriental Medicine: It must have been difficult when you were young because of favoritism towards your younger brother How did you overcome it?
Patient: (Thinking for a while) I’ve even been ridiculed by my patriarchal father for ‘a girl laughs loudly’, and I’ve had a lot of luck. Whenever that happened, my mother praised me saying, ‘You’re pretty and thoughtful, and you’re good at everything.’
Doctor of Oriental Medicine: You received a lot of love from your mother.
Patient: Yes. I did well in college and at work, so my mother was always proud of me. These days, both parents are very fond of their grandchildren, and they make a fuss about doing this and that for their children.
Oriental Doctor: (Makes eye contact) You’re so amazing. Even after marriage, the patient wanted to be a competent mother who raised the three brothers and sisters fair and healthy with love, and her husband seemed to be playing with her to take good care of her late child because she is too young.
Patient: (nodding head) Um… that’s right. My husband is a very caring father to his daughters. After consulting the teacher, I feel relieved and at ease.
The ‘illusion of fluency’ from the cognitive error that ‘the husband’s care for the late toddler is similar to the father’s preference for the son when he was young’ and the patient who suffered from physical weakness due to old age, the condition of the liver . It was analyzed and diagnosed as depression, ulguhwahwa, gihyeolguheo, insomnia, and hwabyung, and it was possible to treat them by managing them with EFT therapy to stabilize them, acupuncture needles, and uric acid.
The patient, who came to the hospital two months after taking the medicine, smiled and said, “I feel better than before, and I have more conversations than before,” when the misunderstanding was resolved with her husband.
Spirit/God/Clothes/White/Intelligence-Judgment of Science Innovative Technology Development
In this way, as a result of the comparative observation of the functions of soul, body, clothing, white, and intelligence, calming through the functional activities of clothing and white and strengthening self-esteem, Yin-Yang relief was restored, and patients who were seized by unhappy emotions being released from depression, anger, resentment, and fatigue.
By analyzing the pathological variation and syndrome ‘mandela effect of preference for boys’ suppressed by the patient, and applying the emotional elevation therapy of stability, Oji’s increasing position, and Jieongoron’s coexistence therapy, it was possible to restore the self-assumption. maintaining the power of spontaneous self-physiological metabolism.
