by Johannes Bernot
“Everything is divided into yin and yang” (Nei Jing). Within the different phases there is a yin and yang division that can be full or empty. If yin and yang are in harmony the system is healthy; if they are in disharmony disease will result. So far this is nothing new. In humans the channel networks also have a yin and yang aspect, which can be full or empty. Only the Liver network seems to have Liver yang excess but no Liver yang deficiency patterns. We can find Liver blood deficiency, then only excess syndromes. How can this be? Are the traditional teachings wrong? Most likely this is not the case.
