Acupuncture and acupuncture services are always monitored III. Basic Theory of Acupuncture III.1.Theory Yin-Yang Yin-Yang theory is a conception of Taoist view of life that are universal. This theory states that all phenomena in the universe has two aspects the opposite and in pairs, namely Yin and Yang. Which means bright and Yin means dark. Yin-Yang include phenomena such as cold-hot, dark-light, weak-strong, in-out, passive-active, moist-dry, bottom-up, women-men, and others. Yin-Yang phenomenon is not absolute, but relative. In certain circumstances can be changed to Yin Yang, or vice versa can be turned into a Yin Yang. All phenomena can be parsed to infinity in the aspect of Yin and Yang. Yin-Yang theory is used to analyze the phenomenon can be observed in the universe. All these aspects have two pairs and opposite aspects, namely Yin and Yang. Yin and Yang mutually dependent, mutually limiting, eating each other, and always in a state of dynamic change to ensure balance. Traditional Chinese Medicine to apply the principle of Yin-Yang is to explain the physiological function and pathological changes, as well as guidance in the diagnosis and therapy. 1. Yin-Yang Against Each Other Means that all phenomena in the universe has two opposite aspects, namely Yin and Yang, and supervise each other cope. For example: heat (Yang) can eliminate the cold (Yin), the cold can lower the temperature. In normal circumstances, the function of organs in a state of balance of Yin-Yang, is regulated through opposing nature of Yin and Yang. Yin-Yang balance disorders cause disease syndrome. The weakness or excess syndromes Yin means cold, excess Yang or Yin deficiency syndrome means heat. 2. Yin-Yang, The Mutual Depending Which means no without Yin. Existence depends on the existence of Yin Yang, otherwise there is no Yin without Yang, Yin existence depends on the existence of Yang. Yin-Yang in Nature: Yin-Yang Earth-Sky Women-Men Night-Day Moon-Sun Low-High Heavy-Light Declining trend, increased tendency Movement downward-upward movement Moving quietly Yin-Yang in the Human Body: THE YIN- Interior-Exterior Front-Rear The top of the bottom- Bone-Skin Organ-Organ in the outer Blood-Qi Inhibition-Stimulation Deficiency-Excess In the human body, Yin suggests substensi nutrients, Which shows the functional activity of organs of the body. The activity is driven by substance Yin. In other words, Yin is the basic ingredient to ensure the activity. Existence of nutritional substances requiring Yin Yang activities, such as Yang-spleen activity. 3. Yin-Yang Eating Each Other Means activities that occur Yin consumption process, or, Yin Yang consumed to produce. In contrast, consumed to produce the Yin Yang. 4. Yin-Yang Mutual Change The relationship between Yin and Yang is not static and dynamic to ensure a balance of Yin- Yang. In certain circumstances, can be turned into a Yin Yang or Yin Yang can turn into. Application of Theory of Yin-Yang in Chinese traditional medicine: 1. Yin-Yang and the Structure of Organic Organs can be divided into two opposite aspects, namely Yin and Yang. According to traditional Chinese medicine, the organs of the body is divided into an organ of Zang and Fu organs. Zang organs are heart, lungs, spleen, liver, and kidneys; that is Yin. Fu organ is the gall bladder, stomach, small intestine, colon, bladder, and san-jiao; which is Yang. Any organ can be distinguished in Which can be distinguished in the Yin and Yang. Cardiac activity is Yin and Yang are the heart, kidneys are the organs of Yin and kidney function is Yang. 2. Yin-Yang and Physiological Functions Physiological function based on the coordination of Yin-Yang organs. The functional activity depends on the presence of nutrients Yin, otherwise the activity is a driving force to generate nutrient Yin in other words, without the function of the organ of Zang-Fu, food can not be converted into nutrients Yin. Yin-Yang balance is to ensure the health and lives of the human body. 3. Yin-Yang and Pathological Changes According to traditional Chinese medicine, diseases caused by a disturbance of balance between Yin in the body. Which are hot, dry, and consume Yin. Which begs the syndrome of excess heat, yin deficiency, and dried. Conversely, the weakness Which begs the cold syndrome, an excess of Yin, and humid. Yin is cold and moist. Excess Yin and Yang can suppress the cold and damp cause the syndrome. Conversely, lack of Yin and Yang can not control the hot and dry syndrome. 4. Yin-Yang as a Guide to Diagnosis and Therapy The disease occurs due to an imbalance between Yin and Yang in the body organs. Knowing and analyzing impaired balance Yin-Yang is a basis of differentiation syndrome illnesses, while restoring the balance of Yin-Yang is the basis of traditional Chinese medicine therapies. III.2. The theory of Wu-Xing The theory of Wu-Xing looked five elements wood, fire, earth, metal, and water as the basic building blocks of the universe and essential materials for everyday life. In accordance with the theory of Yin-Yang, five elements are in a state perbahan dynamic and interdependent. Understanding simple-Xing Wu was later developed into a complex theory. Wu-Xing theory combined with the theory of Yin-Yang and used to understand the disease syndrome, also to uphold the way of therapy. 1. The relationship between the Five Elements and the Five Zang Organs Five elements wood, fire, earth, metal, and water is classified into five Zang organs. According to equation properties, timber belonging to the liver, is developing free, not like a key, and highly flammable. Fire classified as cardiac, are hot and rising. Land belonging to the spleen, nurturing life. Water classified as kidneys, are cold and flows downward. Metals belonging to the lungs, are declining and clean. 2. The relationship between the Five Elements In accordance with the theory of Yin-Yang, five elements are closely related to each other, support each other and restrict each other to ensure the balance of the universe. Application of the theory of Wu-Xing in Chinese traditional medicine and the Yin-Yang theory is used to understand the physiological, pathological changes, and used as a guide for diagnosis and therapy. Timber trees will grow well in fertile soil and adequate water. Meaning, if a healthy liver spleen and kidneys normal. Liver classified timber, flammable and becomes hot. Means, stagnation of Qi (vital energy) out easily turn into heat-and fire-heart heart. Fire-heart easily disrupt the function of the heart and other organs. IV.
