YAN & YANG THE FIVE ELEMENTS
VALDEMIR MOTA DE MENEZES
Yin & Yang and
the Five Elements in the Inner Canon
Yin and Yang and the Five Elements are
First, Everything in the universe contains a mixture of
elements of Yin and Yang,
forces or “energies” which are both contradictory and
example, night and day,
heaven and earth, male and female, life and death,
strength and weakness
all have the dialectical
qualities of Yin and Yang.
While Yin and Yang are opposites, in certain
circumstances they can trade places:
strength becomes weakness,
living things die, death
is followed by birth.
Second, Chinese view the material universe
as highly intricate and
yet in basic terms all phenomenon boil down
to the Five Elements:
metal, wood, water,
fire and earth.
five physical elements interact under the influence of Yin and Yang,
resulting in the world
we live in.
cosmology plays a key role in Chinese traditional medicine,
with every part of the
human body having its own Yin or Yang qualities.
For example, the head is Yang,
as is the entire upper
all the parts below the waist are Yin.
The front of the body is Yin,
the back is Yang.
The back of the hand
is Yang, while the palm is Yin,
and the same goes for the outer and inner sides of the
to the Inner Canon,
“Yin and Yang are the Way of Heaven and Earth.”
Here, “Way” means the
interaction between Yin and Yang
that gives order and discipline to
this great order,
controlling the forces of Yin and Yang
enables one to be a
master of the universe.
Yin and Yang are also the “mother and father” of all
the processes of birth and death.
Yin and Yang are mysterious,
but their mystery can
be seen and solved.
The subtle and complex relationship between Yin and Yang
is a key topic in
Chinese philosophy and Chinese medicine.
Another important aspect of the
is the intimate relationship between Heaven and
beings are singular participants in the vast universe.
Thus the human body
functions according to the same principles and rules that govern the
universe, or nature.
The human body is a microcosm of the universe.
Consider how the
movement of the sun reflects activity in our bodies.
The sun, which is Yang,
rises in the morning,
as does the Yang energy in our bodies.
Yang energy reaches its peak at
the setting sun,
it retreats in the afternoon and evening,
making way for the
emergence of Yin,
which thrives at night.
Let’s also consider the concept of
the relationship between the lunar calendar
and women’s monthly menstrual
are 365 days in the year,
and approximately 360 acupuncture points on the body.
In the Chinese
calendar, 60 years constitutes a cycle or 甲子jiazi.
In fact, some major epidemics occur
at regular intervals,
every 60 years or so.
In ancient times, Chinese people
believed that in order to understand the universe,
it was essential to observe the
functioning of the human body,
