Looking into the Historical Warning of Prohibition of Moxibustion at ST36 From Xiao Er (Little Child): (OAJCAM) - Lupine Publishers


ST36 is the most commonly used acupoint for tonification. The warning Prohibition of moxibustion at ST 36 from Xiao Er (little child) is firstly presented in Lei Jing Tu Yi in 1624 and has been discussed for more than three hundred years, but up to now there has not been any detailed information to verify it. Following TCM theories this study presents some explanations like moxibustion at  ST36 may damage eyesight and digestion, including metabolism and scientific evidence. In addition, factors like the dosage of moxa,  the quality and patterns of patients should be taken into consideration for research in the future.
