Without fully understanding the Universal Concept of Yin-Yang, I think we are all internally aware of these bi-polar forces existing around us in our natural world.
I am naturally drawn to these forces due to my interest in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda. The Principals of Yin-Yang are easily understood and can be applied to our daily lives in order to maintain Balance within our Minds, Bodies and Souls. Understanding and being aware of these forces helps us simplify and unify our lifestyles with our understanding of the concepts of Active (Yang) and Passive (Yin). Consider the Yin-Yang pairs in the chart below.
If you would like to further investigate standard Chinese Yin-Yang theories, or if you would like to learn more about medical diets or herbal systems used over thousands of years, I Highly recommend "Healing with Whole Foods". It's a 750 page reference guide to a plethora of health conditions including Candida, Toxins, Parasites, Diseases, Stomach conditions, Blood Disorders such as Anemia, and it also discusses various diet plans, cleanses, Food Combining and more.
With that said, we just entered into August (one of my favourite months of the year!) and our energy systems will be approaching a new phase as we move from Early Summer (Fire/Yang) to Late Summer (Earth/Yin). In order to Unify with this change, shifting your lifestyle and diet according to the following recommendations will help your body adjust and maintain balance!
