The combination of Allopathic and Chinese medicine can be shown in the example of insulin and glucagon:
We can ascertain by their functions, insulin would represent yin energy while glucagon represents yang energy. One cannot function without the other, and without both in balance, the body becomes diseased.
Knowledge of yin and yang energy can help in the prevention, diagnosis, and cure of diseases, even where Allopathic medicine lacks. It would behoove Allopathic medicine greatly to adopt this paradigm, and it would also benefit the millions of people who suffer from diseases in which there is no known cure for in Allopathic medicine. The incorporation of such knowledge into our medical paradigm could potentially save millions of lives.
