Yin-Yang and Diagnosis, and Treatment

The occurrence, progress, and changes of diseases lie in the imbalance between yin and yang, so all diseases, no matter how complicated they are, can be divided into two categories, yin and yang, from which it is easier to understand all diseases.  See the table below:
 

 

Looking

Listening & Smelling

Asking

Pulse-taking and palpation

Yang

Bright color

Loud voice

Thirst, fever, yellow urine, constipation

Floating, rapid, slippery, full pulse

Yin

Dull color

Low voice

Absence of thirst, chills, clear urine, loose stools

Deep, slow, choppy, empty pulse

 
Since the basic pathogenesis is the imbalance between yin and yang, the therapeutic principle is to restore balance.  For example, diseases of yang nature should be treated with herbal medicines cool or cold in property to clear heat, while diseases of yin nature should be treated with herbal medicines warm and hot in property to eliminate cold.
