QuoteIn Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), stress and burnout are the result of a so-called yang-emphasized lifestyle, in which the liver, kidney and heart in particular are overstressed and finally exhausted. Yang, the male force of life energy Qi, is dynamic, stimulating and logical. She is hot and shows heat. Yin, the feminine form of energy, is inhibitory, soothing and intuitive. It is considered cold and creates cold. As is well known, TCM does not separate body and mind, as opposed to Western medicine, but sees it as a unit. Therefore, the balancing of the life energy, which condition yin and yang, never exclusively targets the body, of course not with stress and burnout symptoms.
