Bronchial asthma (asthma for short) is an attack of chest tightness, coughing, most of the difficulties were associated with typical respiratory wheezing sound as the clinical features of common chronic diseases. The disease at the genetic basis of many by the in vivo pathogenesis of a variety of factors excitation. However, its exact cause, so far not yet fully understand. At present, there is no solution to the problem of modern medicine and drugs.
In Chinese medicine, this disease attributable to patients with asthma or wheeze. As early as in the "Huang Di Nei Jing", that is recorded, such as "Suwen
Pass comment on the actual situation, "saying:" sub-stroke hot milk, shoulder wheeze rate "describes the cause of wheezing in children with symptoms. Zhang Han's "Treatise on Febrile and Miscellaneous Diseases," expounded the laryngeal wheezing sound can not be characterized by the incidence of lying, the system Xiaoqinglong soup, add more Decoction slave girl and so on, so far still are commonly used in clinical. Tang and Song Dynasty, both the clinical symptoms of the disease and have a prescription for further understanding of the treatment. To Jin and Yuan Dynasties, since "Danxi-force" the beginning of the book will be a separate chapter of asthma, and "not made to Fuzheng gas mainly to attack not only made for the radical evil" point of view, there is a greater impact on future generations . Dai Ming-li on the original cause of the disease clearly Ratoon said. Of wheeze in the Qing Dynasty a greater understanding of disease progress in the cause, Mr Lee will use pure summarized as follows: there is congestion gas only, when outside of non-sense of the following are solid plastic sputum. In the dialectic of "medical cases Jin Jian" be divided into cold, heat, true, it is four. In treatment, many physicians in clinical practice according to their own, to sum up past experiences and finishing.
Modern Chinese medicine treatment of asthma clinical data, the first seen in 1954. In the late 50's to explore the succession in Cuba (mainly herbs containing arsenic) and civil recipes a great deal of work to do and carry out a useful discussion. 60 years, into a treatment of this disease caused the attention of the Chinese medicine sector, the number of reported cases of the samples increased significantly, often up to more than 100 cases. Differentiation of this disease, in particular the study of tongue and pulse, a substantial progress. Application of qigong treatment of asthma, reached its peak during this period, from the efficacy of the mechanism have been more objective observation. In addition to the main body acupuncture stimulation of various acupuncture points has also been used in the treatment of this disease. The significant progress in treatment is in the late 70's after, on the one hand, from the etiology and pathogenesis, syndrome differentiation type of evaluation until becoming the same; On the other hand, in view of the complexity of the disease situation, the characteristics of easy recurrence , treatment has become more diverse, dedicated to the treatment and acupuncture therapy, has now become the primary means of prevention and treatment of asthma. At the same time, in the treatment effect has been increasingly demonstrated the advantages of Chinese medicine, according to the clinical data of publicly reported statistics, the efficiency of its 85% ~ 90%.
The mechanism of Chinese medicine to combat asthma research, started in the 60's. Qigong has been observed at the time the implementation of the urine of 17 patients treated with a steroid ketones content that its efficacy may be related to an increase in the generation of the blood of the adrenal cortex. Since the 80's, carried out extensive endocrinology, immunology, blood rheology and molecular biology research, made a series of achievements. If the application Bushen law, patients can regulate the hypothalamus - pituitary - adrenal system, raise the exogenous hormone suppression of pituitary - adrenal axis excitability, which obtained the long-term efficacy of asthma. In addition, determination of blood rheology and found that the pathogenesis of bronchial asthma and clinical manifestations seen in the blood evidence, and a number of abnormalities of the blood rheology.
