Pathology and Pathogenesis Causes of Diseases

TCM defines a healthy person as one whose Yin and Yang are balanced. Such a balance exists in the person’s viscera, meridians, Qi, Blood, body fluid, and between the person and his or her environment. Disease breaks out when the balance is disturbed by pathogens. An outbreak depends on the pathogen type and healthy Qi strength (body resistance). The personal constitution also determines the outcome of a pathogen attack.
