If yin and yang are out of balance, They may have various symptoms. For example, some people have frequent headaches. Maybe because there is too much Yang element in various organs, we will use cooling acupuncture. or draining the yang of that organ To achieve balance or in some people who have cold symptoms Or have sore muscles and body aches when the weather changes.

But it must be accepted that primary medical treatment (Conventional and Aliphatic Medicine) is still considered the main method used to treat the majority of the world's population. The primary medical doctor will focus on treating the symptoms first, such as pain caused by this substance in the body. Or insomnia is caused by this part of the nervous system. Or is there too much of this neurotransmitter? Then modern medicine focuses on using drugs or chemicals to treat it. It's like blocking that neurotransmitter to make sleep better. or block inflammatory mediators in that part to reduce pain It can be seen that primary care doctors focus mostly on treating symptoms.

 

But in many alternative medicines or traditional Chinese medicine Emphasis will be placed on balancing the overall balance. It is the balancing of various elements, emotions, feelings, behavior, and eating, which Chinese medicine doctors may adjust with Chinese medicine, acupuncture, and eating habits as well. It is a way to adjust the overall balance of the body.
