Name the 6 principles of yin and yang theory. 1. Yin and yang balance one another, 2. Co-existence of yin and yang, 3. Quantitative exchange of yin and yang, 4. Qualitative exchange of yin and yang, 5. Infinite yin and yang subdivisions, 6. Yin and yang can block one another
Describe the main idea behind "yin and yang balance one another," and give an example. Under normal, healthy conditions, yin and yang are in balance. Imbalance of either one over the other leads to illness/disease. Example: in treatment, a "cold/yin" medicine is used to treat a "hot/yang" illness. The opposite is also true.
Describe the main idea behind "co-existence of yin and yang." Yin and yang depend on one another; one cannot exist without the other; one cannot function without the organs.
Describe the difference between "quantitative" and "qualitative" exchange of yin and yang. A quantitative exchange occurs when extreme amounts of yin or yang causes the other to increase in order to maintain the balance. A qualitative exchange is when yin turns into yang.
Give an example of "quantitative exchange of yin and yang." Extreme heat or extreme cold are both evil chi. Heat can enter the body and deplete the body of yin energy as the body struggles to balance out the heat with yin. This leads to yang excess and yin depletion. The opposite is true with extreme cold.
Give an example of "qualitative exchange of yin and yang." Yang turning into Yin: High fever turning into shivering cold. Yin turning into Yang: Coma patient waking up after a blood transfusion.
Describe the main idea behind "infinite yin and yang subdivisions," and give an example. Example 1: Mucous, saliva and water are yin, but if light in color it is yang (dark is yin). Water is yang relative to mucous (yin). Example 2: Guardian and nutrition chi are both yang, but guardian chi is yang relative to nutrition chi (yin).
Describe the main idea behind "yin and yang can block one another," and give an example. Too much yin can block the action of yang (and vice versa). Example: If the body is too cold (yin) inside, yang is prevented from entering the body to bring it back to balance. This condition is referred to as "sick hot outside - very cold inside."
Give an example of "co-existence of yin and yang" that is focused on the organs. Example 1: the organs depend on each other to supply nutrients, and in turn support the functions of other organs. The liver (yin) supplies blood to the stomach (yang) to digest food and nutrients that are then used to support the function of the liver.
Give an example of "co-existence of yin and yang" that is focused on treatment. Example 2: treating a yin organ involves a yang organ, and visa versa. If yin organ is diseased, acupuncture points on the back (yang) are used, and visa versa.
