In traditional Asian medicine, health and well-being are believed to be a balance of two equally important, but opposing, principlesyin and yang. Yin is associated with attributes such as femininity, receptivity, calmness, coolness, and moisture. Yin also regulates the fluids, blood, and tissues of your body, as well as its structural components, including flesh, tendons, and bones.
Yang, on the other hand, is associated with masculinity, aggression, heat, and dryness. It also regulates your bodys energy, which acts as the spark plug to your structural elements.
In younger women, this balance seems to be maintained almost effortlessly. But maintaining an optimal yin-yang balance becomes much more difficult once you reach middle age and menopause and menopause symptoms set in.
