Yin and Yang are the opposite and complementary forces. This statement is not always understood by most people of the West, as shown by my experience. Therefore, I simplified this theory and outlined it in this textbook. According to the depth of your understanding of our philosophy, follow my instructions strictly, completely and without fear. In moments of uncertainty, see how, bypassing them, to reach a safe end. Remember how Professor Herrigel followed the advice of Master Ava. It is less difficult than fasting treatment.
Remember that you should eat as much as you want, and eating should last for as long as you chew food very carefully. You have a right, and you should consider it your duty to strive for health and happiness, but this should be done for yourself, without the help of others. In this you can use only an example that all wild animals show us.

Here is a brief summary of the theory of Yin-Yang:
According to our philosophy, there is nothing in the world outside of Yin and Yang. Speaking the language of our physics. Yin and Yang are centrifugal and fast-striking forces, respectively, centrifugal force is expanding, it brings silence, calmness, cold and darkness. The centripetal force is compressing and brings sound, action, heat and light.

The following physical phenomena are subject to these two main forces.
What do we eat? What is better: to be a person who eats only fruit, or a vegetarian? Or both bad?
We study this question. Think, think and think carefully. Thinking about it gives understanding, health and well-being.
Right thinking means, in the Yin-Yang language, practical dialectics, the key to the Kingdom of Heaven.
For a person who knows and can balance the forces of Yin and Yang, the world and life is the greatest free university available to man. For a person who knows nothing 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 CERTAIN. They can be taken daily and at each 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 listed in the table as a very Yang group, it is unsafe to use them as often as brown whole rice. The whole fruit category belongs to the VERY YIN group (compare with the CERTAIN category). Therefore, healthy people eat ONLY SMALL NUMBER OF APPLES. For sick people, ALL FRUITS ARE FORBIDDEN.
Food and beverages, such as cereals, vegetables, etc., are arranged in a manner that corresponds to their allowed amount (in% of the total amount of food) and the frequency of their intake. For example, CEREAL ALWAYS is the basis of food. They take the greatest amount - at least 60% of the total amount of food at the reception.
Vegetables - addition to cereals, they should be fewer, they should be consumed less often. Fish is also consumed in smaller quantities and less frequently. Products of animal origin, dairy products, fruits and various products listed in the table are consumed in consistently decreasing amounts and very rarely.
All drinks, both Yin and Yang (in the table), are consumed in the smallest quantities of all products and less often. If possible, take only EIGHT OUNDS of fluid for the day as a whole.
There are further recommendations on the choice of products that lie in the center (or near it) between the “very Yin” and “very Yang” groups within each (group) category: many of them are special products for various purposes. This is a fine line that can achieve the highest health and happiness. We cannot indicate this line, since Macrobiotic life is not a rigid adherence to a set of rules. Maintaining a balance of health in our daily life depends on the individual adaptability of each and taking into account each of the constantly existing influences of many factors.
This makes happiness and human health a permanent condition of the person.
The climate and the type of human activity influences what and how it eats (factors such as place of birth, constitution, time of year, as well as many other things, are taken into account as the degree of understanding of order in the Universe grows).
For example, a person living in a cold climate needs products a little more than Yang than is necessary for the inhabitants of the tropics. A field worker can tolerate a little more Yin food in the diet, compared to working at a desk. Everything is relative and is determined by the individuality itself, since no list of rules is capable of embracing all the differences of one person to another.
The expression “very Yang” should not be understood as a diet based only on meat, just as “more life” does not imply a meal made from fruits and sugar alone. The fact that daily meals are based primarily on cereals is a matter of course.
Yin and Yang - in all. Take rice as an example. 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, shade of color.
What is of paramount importance in achieving a high degree of health and well-being of each person personally:
1. Understanding by studying the law of the Universe, of which everyone is a part.
2. Studying oneself with the goal of the most knowledge about oneself and one’s own reactions to the environment.
3. 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 1939 monograph by Dollard and his co-authors, marked the beginning of intensive experimental studies of aggression. According to this theory, aggression is not an attraction that arises automatically in the depths of the body, but is the result of frustration, that is, obstacles that arise in the way of targeted
  2. Theory of cognitive dissonance
    We have learned how installations go into behavior, but it happens that behavior goes into installation. The most influential description of such a sequence of events was the theory of cognitive dissonance proposed by Leon Festinger. As with all theories of cognitive consonance, this theory implies that a person needs cognitive consistency; two cognitions not
  3. Feminist theory
    The term "feminism" (from the Latin. Femina - woman) was first used by Alice Rossi in 1895. Currently, there are many definitions of feminism. Often, feminism is understood as the theory of gender equality that underlies the movement of women for liberation. Most often, it is interpreted more broadly - as various kinds of actions in defense of women's rights, based on the notions of legal equality of the sexes (in this
  4. Neural theory
    Under the neural theory understand 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 into various more or less complex complexes. Neural theory was formulated in 1891 by Waldeyer and was further developed in the works of Ramon-i-Kahal, Waller and many other morphologists and physiologists.
  5. "Theory of Installation" D. N. Uznadze
    An important direction in Soviet psychology was the “theory of set”, founded by the Georgian psychologist Dmitry Nikolayevich Uznadze (1886-1950). D. N. Uznadze considered psychology as a science of a holistic personality, the motives and actions of which may be unconscious (his approach to the unconscious for a long time determined 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, as it relates to the formation of adaptive human behavior. The main postulate (principle) of the theory of learning says: human behavior is the result of external influences. Changes in external conditions and even artificial manipulations with the external environment lead to a regular change in behavior, if it is poorly adapted to these
  7. Social identity theory
    Brewer (1990) believes that a person has two opposite needs: to confirm his resemblance to other people and to preserve his own individuality. According to Brevera, we want to look like others and at the same time be different from them. Dividing people into members of one’s own and other’s groups helps one to achieve both goals. That we have something in common with other members of our group,
  8. Cultural-historical theory of L. S. Vygotsky
    One of the most important areas that emerged in the 1920s and 1930s was the "cultural-historical theory" developed by Lev Vygotsky (1896-1934). Despite the fact that a number of its provisions were subjected and criticized, including by the followers of L. S. Vygotsky, his main ideas are being developed productively now, and these ideas are now embodied not only in
    As a result of a huge number of microscopic studies in the XVII — XVIII centuries. accumulated a wealth of factual material about the structure of plant and animal organisms. However, the metaphysical way of thinking inherent in feudalism, which prevailed at that time, did not contribute to theoretical generalizations of these facts. Considering nature as an accidental accumulation of objects created
    All living organisms, with the exception of viruses, are made up of cells. Cells, most often represented by microscopic formations, have all the most important vital properties: self-regulation, self-reproduction, unity of structure and function, historical development, etc. The cells constantly undergo metabolic processes and energy conversion. The science that studies the structure and

I do not deny it, too, since I have been communicating with you for so many years! In simple terms, it is urea. Now you understand the depth of popular wisdom “osteochondrosis hit in the head” ?! After such a “strike”, the eyes get out of orbits, and as a result,
