According to the reports from Ministry of Health in each country, the average life spans were expanded over the past century. This trend is expected to be extended further in the future and at the same time continuous efforts should be made. That indicates that the quantitative objective, as one of the objectives people have aimed at since ancient times to attain the perpetual youth and longevity, are almost achieved in this way. However, as the next objective, it is necessary for us to be concerned about improving the more advanced quality of life.
In an effort of improving the quality of life, other than the western medicine, we have attempted to bring many traditional medical practices, including the Oriental medicine, from various parts of the world into the medical field as alternative medicine. Judging both positive and negative aspects by the evaluation standard of the Western medicine, we try to obtain numerical values of QOL, and after that, set a numerical target for improvement of QOL. Some methods of alternative medicine taken in this review are acupuncture moxibustion, Chinese medicine and other traditional medicine. Above all, WHO suggests selecting the suzerain nation of acupuncture moxibustion, which has been developed in the Oriental countries and realized as a specialized cure, by raising good & bad points and ascertaining which nation advocating the best modeling method could be. At the moment for evaluating CAM, for example, what kind of methods is/are suitable for evaluating each CAM. We have been trying to propose the peripheral leukocyte is one of the best ways for evaluating CAM. Our trials are hot spring hydro therapy, acupuncture and moxibution, light exercise and undle heating. In these evaluations, we found the common results from leukocyte effects which exhibited strong correlation for the regulation. The contents are the result from the data showing the much in number tend to downly regulate, on the other hand lower number one is up-regulated. This kind of regulation showed within a 24 hrs, for the leukocyte subsets, granulocyte and lymphocyte are changed under circadian rhythm. So for purpose of evaluating leukocyte deviation, we set the point for evaluation at the same-time zone from the first set of evaluation. Under these condition, we got a same results reproductively that the whole number of leukocyte, and its subset, granulocyte and lymphocyte also regulated within a 24 hrs. This kind of phenomenon is the case that we confirm a lot of kind of CAM and repetition. However, the life span of leukocyte are at lease 3-4 days and no such a drastic apoptosis was induced such a stimulation. For the purpose of scientific explanation, we proposed that the emotional hormone are concern this change of leukocytes population. For the results of this hypothesis, there were reasonable change were seen in the peripheral blood about emotional hormone, adrenaline and dopamine. Other hormone concern thyroid grand was not changed significantly. In this review, I plan to collect evidence and judge them with the content suggested in the case of CAM setup. In other words, as a judging standard, setting immunologic factors as main items, we will judge superior and inferior of methods of each country. Recommending not only quantitatively, but also qualitatively to evaluate “balance of the lymphocyte which is the associate of the white blood corpuscle and the polymorph” as a standard of the alternative medicine in the concept of this international medical magazine.
