Yin/yang

Posted on December 5th, 2001 by

Complementary but opposing qualities assigned to everything in the natural world as part of ancient Chinese cosmology. Everything has a yin and a corresponding yang as in night and day, hot and cold. The human body has both yin and yang organs which must produce a balance by operating in pairs. A balance of yin and yang forces in the body is assumed to create good health; when yin and yang are not balanced, illness results.
