4 Coordination and balance
Balance of elements
The interpromotion and restraint of the five elements maintain ecological balance in nature and the physiological coordination and balance of the human body. Besides, the human body should have the balance and coordination of chemical elements in nature. For instance, iodine deficiency gives rise to thyroid enlargement and zinc deficiency to infertility. According to the concept of balance of elements in TCM, imbalance of elements inside the human body should be remedied to keep the coordination and balance of various elements inside the body.
Dysfunctions, loss of symmetry and unstable states of the human body are the important causes giving rise to physiological hypofunction, premature ageing and diseases of the human body. There exist the theory and methods of coordinative balance in the medical techniques of life cultivation and rehabilitation in TCM. For example, there are such methods as "treating diseases in the upper part by managing the lower", "treating diseases in the lower by managing the upper", "treating diseases in the left by managing the right" and "treating diseases in the right by managing the left” in acumoxi and massage as well as "alternation of physical labor and mental one" and "alternation of movement and motionlessness" in life cultivation.
