Yin and Yang are the opposite and complementary forces. This statement is not always understood by most Westerners, as my experience has shown. So I simplified this theory and outlined it in this tutorial. According to the depth of your understanding of our philosophy, follow strictly, completely and without fear of my directions. In moments of insecurity, see how, bypassing them, get to the happy end. Remember how Professor Herrigel followed the advice of Master Ava. This is less difficult than starving.
Remember that you should eat as much as you want, and eating should continue until you chew the food very carefully. You have the right, and you must consider it your duty to strive for health and happiness, but this must be done for oneself, without the help of others. In this you can use only an example, which shows us all the wild animals.

Here is a brief outline of the Yin-Yang theory:
According to our philosophy, there is nothing in the world beyond Yin and Yang. Speaking the language of our physics. Yin and Yang - centrifugal and centrifugal forces, respectively, centrifugal force - expanding, it brings silence, calmness, cold and darkness. Centripetal force - compressive and brings sound, action, heat and light.

The following physical phenomena obey these two basic forces.
What do we eat? Which is better: to be a person who eats only fruits, or is a vegetarian? Or is both bad?
Let's study this question. Think, think and think carefully. Meditating on this provides insight, health and well-being.
Correct reflection means practical dialectic, the key to the Kingdom of Heaven, in the Yin-Yang language.
For a person who knows and can balance the forces of Yin and Yang, peace and life is the greatest free university available to man. For a person who does not know anything about Yin and Yang, life is hell on earth.

Macrobiotic table of products: The main order in the table inside each category: from Yin to Yang.
The category of necessary food includes only CEREAL. They can be taken daily and at every meal. They form the basis of the macrobiotic nutrition method.
All other products and drinks of the Yin and Yang groups (in the table) are used in SMALL quantities, occasionally and CAUTION.
For example: although apples are classified in the table as very Yang, it is not safe to eat them as often as brown whole rice. The whole category of fruits belongs to the group VERY YIN (compare with the category CEREAL). Therefore, healthy people eat only a small number of apples. For sick people ALL FRUITS are FORBIDDEN.
Foods and drinks, for example cereals, vegetables, etc., are arranged in an order that corresponds to their allowed amount (in% of the total amount of food) and the frequency of their intake. For example, CEREALS are ALWAYS the basis of food. They take the greatest amount - at least 60% of the total food intake.
Vegetables are a supplement to cereals, there should be less of them, they should be consumed less often. Fish is also used in smaller quantities and less often. Products of animal origin, dairy products, fruits and various products included in the table, are used in successively decreasing quantities and very rarely.
All drinks, like Yin and Yang (in Table), are consumed in the smallest of all products and less frequently. If possible, take only EIGHT Ounces of liquid for the day as a whole.
There are further recommendations for choosing products that lie in the center (or near it) between the "very Yin" and "very Yan" companies within each (group) category: many of them are special products for different purposes. This is a fine line, which can achieve the highest health and happiness. We can not point this out, because Macrobiotic life is not a rigid adherence to the set of rules. Maintaining the balance of health in our daily lives depends on the individual adaptability of each and the consideration of each constantly existing influence of many factors.
This makes happiness and human health a constant state of man.
The climate and the type of person's activity affect what and how it feeds (factors such as birthplace, constitution, time of year, as well as many other things, are taken into account by man as his degree of understanding of order in the universe grows).
For example, a person living in a cold climate, needs a little more food than Ian, which is necessary for a resident of the tropics. A person working in the field can allow a little more of Yin foods in the diet, compared to working at a desk. Everything is relative and determined by the individuality, because no list of rules is able to embrace all the differences of one person to another.
The expression "very Yan" should not be understood as a diet based only on meat, as well as "more life" does not imply a meal of fruits and sugar alone. The fact that daily food is based primarily on cereals, is a matter of course.
Yin and Yang - in everything. Take for example rice First of all, whole brown rice is "more YAN" than polished white rice. However, among other varieties of brown rice, some are more Yin or Yang than others. The final definition depends on at least three factors:
1. How rice was grown
2. In what climate.
3. What is the grain size, shape, water content, color shade.
What is of paramount importance in achieving a high degree of health and well-being of everyone personally:
1. Understanding by studying the law of the universe, of which everyone is a part.
2. Studying yourself for the purpose of the greatest knowledge about yourself and about your reactions to the environment.
Think, think and think all the time.

  1. Frustration theory of aggression
    In contrast to the purely theoretical concepts of attraction, the frustration theory, as presented in the monograph of 1939 by Dollard and his co-authors, initiated intensive experimental studies of aggression. According to this theory, aggression is not an automatically arising attraction in the bowels of the organism, but a consequence of frustration, that is, of obstacles that arise in the way of purposeful
  2. Theory of cognitive dissonance
    We learned how settings go into behavior, but it happens that the behavior goes into the installation. The most influential description of this sequence of events was the theory of cognitive dissonance, proposed by Leon Festinger. As in all theories of cognitive consonance, this theory implies the existence of a person's need for cognitive coherence; two cognitions, not
  3. Feminist theory
    The term "feminism" (from the Latin femina - a woman) was first used by Alice Rossi in 1895. At present, there are many definitions of feminism. Often, feminism is understood as the theory of gender equality, which underlies the movement of women for liberation. Most often it is treated more broadly - as various kinds of actions in defense of women's rights, based on ideas about the legal equality of the sexes (in this
  4. Neural Theory
    By neural theory is understood the general theory of the structure of the nervous tissue, according to which the entire nervous system consists of a huge number of structural units - neurons, connected in various more or less complex complexes. The neural theory was formulated in 1891 by Valdeier and was further developed in the works of Ramon-i-Kahal, Waller and many other morphologists and physiologists.
  5. "Theory of Installation" DN Uznadze
    An important trend in Soviet psychology was the "installation theory", founded by the Georgian psychologist Dmitry Nikolayevich Uznadze (1886-1950). DN Uznadze considered psychology as a science of an integral person, whose motives and actions may be unconscious (his approach to the unconscious for a long time was determined by domestic developments in this direction). Any behavior, by
  6. Theory of teaching children.
    The theory of learning is fundamentally different from the theory of knowledge, since it concerns the formation of an adaptive behavior of a person. The main postulate (principle) of the theory of learning is: human behavior is the result of external influences. Changes in external conditions and even artificial manipulations with the external environment lead to a natural change in behavior if it is poorly adapted to these
  7. Theory of social identity
    Brever (1990) believes that man has two opposite needs: to confirm his resemblance to other people and to maintain his own individuality. According to Brewer, we want to be like the people around us and at the same time different from them. The division of people into members of their own and others' groups helps to achieve both goals. The fact that we have something in common with other members of our group,
  8. The cultural and historical theory of LS Vygotsky
    One of the most important trends, formed in the 20-30's, was the "cultural-historical theory", developed by Lev Semenovich Vygotsky (1896-1934). Despite the fact that a number of its provisions have been and are being criticized, including by the followers of Vygotsky, his basic ideas are being developed productively even now, and these ideas are now embodied not only in the
    As a result of a huge number of microscopic studies in the XVII-XVIII centuries. accumulated a wealth of factual material on the structure of plant and animal organisms. However, the metaphysical way of thinking inherent in feudalism, which dominated at that time, did not contribute to theoretical generalizations of these facts. Considering nature as a random accumulation of objects created
    All living organisms, with the exception of viruses, consist of cells. Cells, most often represented by microscopic formations, possess all the most important vital properties: self-regulation, self-reproduction, unity of structure and function, historical development, etc. In the cells, metabolic processes and energy transformations are constantly occurring. The science that studies the structure and

I do not deny it, I have too, since I have been communicating with you for so many years! In simple terms, it is urea. Now you understand the depth of folk wisdom "osteochondrosis hit the head" ?!
