Balance is an ancient concept we’ve already come across with the Qi or “life force,” but the Chinese also stumbled upon the brilliant Taoist concept of the Yin and Yang. The Yin and Yang represent all the opposite principles one finds in the universe, for example, femaleness, cold, darkness and maleness, heat, light, respectively. All phenomena have within them the seeds of their opposite state. Therefore, sickness has the seeds of health, and health contains the seeds of sickness. If you take one moment to think about this, it will become clear to you. It is through illness that we discover a need to take care of our health and it is through a lack of being healthy that we become ill. There are exceptions, but for the majority of us, our fate lies in our own hands. Three elements of balance that are essential to cardiac health are diet, exercise and stress. There must be balance within and between each element. You will have a more thorough understanding of how your life is best balanced for your heart by the time you are done reading this book.
