We are living in an era, where we are subjected to continuous daily mental, emotional and physical strains that seem to be inevitable byproducts of today’s lifestyle.
The illnesses we try to fight and find solutions for are mainly due to an overstimulated or an inefficient and exhausted system, today known as the endocannabinoid system.
This homeostatic regulator of neuronal and physiological system was traditionally referred to the Yin and Yang Vital energy (Qi).
According to the Traditional Chinese Medicine, the concept of the yin and yang was defined as “the harmony of all the elements and forces that make up existence “. The dynamic balance between the yin and yang is the key to the internal state of equilibrium, hence the optimum state of health.
All longerm internal patterns of disharmony, as results of deficiciencies, excesses or both, will lead into mental, emotional or physical illnesss.
Deficiencies can be understood as lack of vital energy. Adequate vital nutrients, fresh air and proper physical activities can counteract the deficiency patterns. Excesses can be explained as over abundance of anything relative to one’s needs. Some of these factors are environmental chemicals, dietary excess, and excessive emotions.
