and if yang is on the left side, and yin on the right... how come the left side is about mother issues, and the right side about father issues

Where did you hear that from? :o


Another question concerns the archetypal merging/fusion of Yin & Yang in Taoist (and other forms) of alchemy.  What exactly (theoretically & experientially) does it mean to merge or fuse the 2?


Is it like connecting a full electrical circuit like with + & - terminals?  Or letting north and south magnetic poles meet? 


Or if they're already "fused" like electromagnetism...then how more would you "fuse" them?


In Topic: Neutralizing acidic drinks like Apple Cider Vinegar and Kombucha

24 hours report.

I poured kombucha and a small amount of pineapple juice into a jar added some baking soda.  Resulted in a slightly acidic brew. 

I left it in the jar covered. 

Today upon inspection a beginning of a scoby is forming.  (engulfing the foam created by the baking soda lingering at the top of the jar.)


If it continues to thrive,  I will try it with an approcamately ph neutral solution. 

What about trying food grade diatomaceous earth?  It's supposed to offer numerous health benefits just on its own.

DE is approximately 3% magnesium, 33% silicon, 19% calcium, 5% sodium, 2% iron and many other trace minerals such as titanium, boron, manganese, copper and zirconium.

Although according to this thread, it doesn't dissolve fast enough to alkalize acids much...

No they wouldnt, because the church has gone through great lengths to suppress any words that might betray evidence that Jesus just might have been an everyday, albeit rare and energetically gifted, person.

I think a rigorous, open, academic debate would be great! 


For example, how do Christians explain verses like:

Exodus 4:24 - And it came to pass by the way in the inn, that the LORD met him, and sought to kill him.

• The left side of the body is Yang;the right side is Yin.

Very interesting!  Yes, it does seem that the more classical Chinese sources claim this and from some very preliminary clinical experiences - I suspect may be accurate too.


I wonder what their logic or theory behind left being Yang is, though?

This is a "trivial" question that may already be answered in some of his materials - but it's been hard to get a consistent answer on it.  Which side of the human body is Yin & which is Yang?

It is also a question that has raised plenty of debate throughout the ages in China itself. It is true that most of the Ch. med. texts claim that Yin Qi resides on the left side and Yang on the Rt. side. Yet, some have claimed exactly the opposite. Nevertheless, the main stream of Ch. med. thought accepts that Yin belongs to the left and Yang to the right - speaking of polarity !

Yang, or male, energies predominate in the right side of the body and in specific organs—e.g., the hollow organs (the bladder, intestines, stomach, or gall bladder, among others)—whereas the yin energy system rules the left side of the body and the solid organs (kidneys, heart, lungs, liver, spleen, and pericardium).

some others regard the left side of the body as Yang and the right side as Yin. In China, we have a saying that the left side of the body is male and the right side of it is female, which also came from here, and which is quite true.

Or may it also depend on gender?  Or might Yang problems show up more on the Yin side and vice-versa?


Logically, it would seem as if the right side (left side of brain) should be Yang...but many actual Chinese qigong masters seems to disagree.


So, does anyone know for a fact, or based upon clinical experience, which is which?
