The Phylosophy of Traditional Chinese Medicine

Yin & Yang

Yin (Female, moon, night, soft, negative, black) & Yang (Male, sun, day, hard, positive, white). The problem most Westerners have with this principle is that they tend to see Yin and Yang as opposites, two extremes. In TCM , however, they are aware of the seed of the Yang in the Yin and the seed of Yin in the Yang: nothing is ever only one or the other, there is always a balance within the thing itself. Neither can exist without the other. Illness can be seen as resulting from an imbalance of the two.

The Five Elements

Most oriental wisdom, medicine and phylosophy is based on the theory of the Five Elements (Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, Water), which suggests, while we are a combination of all the elements, we do tend to display the characteristics of one over the others. these elements are not those of Western Astrology.It is better to regard them more as aspects of character.

Wood - LIV & GBl network,  Fire - HT & SI,  Earth - SP & ST, Metal - LU & LI, Water - KID & BL

Each of the five elemts gives its own unique personality to the person and each of them rules or influence different parts of the body, emotional expressions, colours , tastes and energies.
