The basic theory of Chinese medicine begins with yin and yang as the framework. The theory of yin and yang states that everything in nature has two opposing aspects and everything is always in flux, never constant. When this concept is applied to the human body, it is called homeostasis. Under normal conditions in the body, there is a relative physiological balance of yin and yang, but when there is an excess or deficiency of these energies, this is when disease or injury arises.
