 Yin and Yang
Yin and yang are a philosophical conceptualization, a means to generalize the two extremes of the same process or quality, which may be observed in all related phenomena within the natural world.
For instance, when the sun (yang) is above our heads at noon and slowly sets as the day progresses to night (yin), it is the process of "consumption of yang leading to the gaining of yin.' Under normal conditions, the inter-consuming-supporting relationship of yin and yang is in a state of relative balance.
If this relationship goes beyond normal physiological limits, the relative balance between yin and yang is disturbed, resulting in excess or deficiency of either yin or yang and the occurrence of ailments.
