TCM History The history of TCM can be summarized by a list of important doctors and books. Unknown, Huángdì nèijīng ( 黃帝內經 / 黄帝内经 ) (Yellow Emperor's Inner Canon) - Sùwèn ( 素问 / 素問 ) and Língshū ( 灵枢 / 靈樞 ). The earliest classic of TCM passed on to the present. Warring States Period (5th century BC to 221 BC): Silk manuscripts recording channels and collaterals, Zubi shiyi mai jiu jing ( 足臂十一脉灸经 / 足臂十一脈灸經 ) (Moxibustion Classic of the Eleven Channels of Legs and Arms), and Yinyang shiyi mai jiu jing ( 阴阳十一脉灸经 / 陰 陽十一脈灸經 ) (Moxibustion Classic on the Eleven Yin and Yang Channels). The latter was part of a cache of texts found in Mawangdui in the 1970s.
TCM History Han Dynasty (206 BC–AD 220) to Three Kingdoms Period ( AD): Zhenjiu zhenzhong jing ( 针灸枕中经 / 鍼灸枕中經 ) (Classic of Moxibustion and Acupuncture Preserved in a Pillow) by Huà Tuó ( 华佗 / 華佗 ). Shanghan zabing lun ( 伤寒杂病论 / 傷寒雜病論 ), which has since been split into two texts: the Shānghán lùn ( 伤寒论 / 傷寒論 ) ("Treatise on Cold Damage [Disorders]" - focusing on febrile conditions attributed to "Cold") and the Jingui yaolue ( 金匱要略 ) ("Essentials of the Golden Cabinet" - focusing on "miscellaneous illnesses") by Zhāng Zhòngjǐng ( 张仲景 / 張仲景 ). Jìn Dynasty ( ): Zhēnjiǔ jiǎyǐ jīng ( 针灸甲乙经 / 鍼 灸甲乙經 ) (Systematic Classic of Acupuncture and Moxibustion) by Huángfǔ Mì ( 皇甫谧 / 皇甫謐 ).
TCM History Tang Dynasty (618–907) Beiji qianjin yaofang ( 备急千金要方 / 備急千金要方 ) (Emergency Formulas Worth a Thousand in Gold) and Qianjin yifang ( 千金翼 方 ) (Supplement to the Formulas Worth a Thousand in Gold) by Sūn Sīmiǎo ( 孙思邈 / 孫思邈 ). Waitai miyao ( 外台秘要 / 外臺秘要 ) (Arcane Essentials from the Imperial Library) by Wang Tao ( 王焘 / 王燾 ). Song Dynasty (960 – 1279): Tóngrén shūxué zhēnjiǔ tújīng ( 铜人腧穴针灸图经 / 銅人腧穴鍼灸 圖經 ) (Illustrated Manual of the Practice of Acupuncture and Moxibustion at (the Transmission) (and other) Acu-points, for use with the Bronze Figure) by Wáng Wéiyī ( 王惟一 ).

Pharmacological Effects Possibly Linked to Interior Warming
Vasodilation and its Relation to Interior Warming Common mode of action (except Hua Jiao) –Inhibit Ca 2+ influx Other Modes of actions –Increase NO –Increase cGMP –Activate TRPV1 –Alpha-adrenoceptor blockade Why vasodiation produces warming effect or sensation? –Blushing A result of vasodilation Warm feeling –Cold extremeties due to loss of beta-adrenoceptor mediated vasodilation –Increased lumen size of blood vessels More blood brought to vasodilated area Warm sensation 1 Rang HP, Dale MM, Ritter JM, P.K. M. Pharmacology. 5th ed. Edinburgh ; New York: Churchill Livingstone, 2003
Pharmacological Effects Possibly Linked to Interior Warming
TRPV1 Agonism and its Relation to Interior Warming Transient receptor potential ion channel of vanilloid type 1 –Highly expressed in a subset of primary sensory neurons of the trigeminal, vagal and dorsal root ganglia –Non-neuronal cells 1 1 Geppetti P, Materazzi S, Nicoletti P. Eur J Pharmacol 2006;533(1-3): Activation leads to many effects –Burning sensation –Vasodilation via release of Calcitonin gene related peptide (CGRP) –Inhibit gastric leisions –Thermogenesis Piperine, 6-gingerol, 10-gingerol, 6-shogaol Associated with vasoconstriction
TRPV1 Agonism and its Relation to Interior Warming Dual actions leading to the same warming effect or sensation? 1.TRPV1 causes both vasodilation and vasoconstriction under different conditions 1 –Directly induce vascular smooth muscle contraction, linked to thermogenesis that is abolished by vasodilators –But release neuropeptides e.g. CGRP that causes vasodilation 1 Eldershaw T, Colquhoun E, Bennett K et al. Life Sci 1994;55(5): VasodilationThermogenesis Bi BaBisabolenePiperine (Abolished by Bisabolene?) Gan Jiang 10-gingerol (Net-effect?) Effect Herb 6-shogaol6-gingerol 6-shogaol6-gingerol 2.TRPV1 agonists reported to result in hypothermia due to response to thermogenesis and activation of warm sensors 1, –False sense of warmth –Not truly ‘therapeutic’
