Without clarifying this point, we cannot understand why the descriptions of the meridian system in traditional Chinese medicine classics, obviously refer to the blood vessels, yet fail to fully accord with blood vessels. Fourthly, we must know the meridian theory is a complex. Therefore, even if one day modern science succeeds in ascertaining the essence of the phenomena of the meridian, it could never fully explain the entire system. For example, the physicians from the era of “The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine” were aware that there was a particular connection between the tender points on the two sides of the spine and the ailments of horizontally positioned organs.

In The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine, the yin–yang theory was used more for describing the abstract concept of opposition and balance between yin and yang. Such a doctrine is in fact essentially different from that of the above-mentioned traditional yin–yang theory. The concept of yin and yang includes a facet of the integration of yin and yang constituting the ontology of the universe on the one hand, and a facet of emphasis on the different “phenomena” resulting from difference between yin and yang in property on the other Medicine 21 hand.

When orientations are involved, the center belongs to earth, the left or the east to liver and wood, and the right or the west to lung and metal. Therefore, “rosacea” indicates spleen dampness and stomach heat. The change of color in the left zygomatic indicates changed liver conditions and that in the right zygomatic indicates changed lung conditions. In addition, there is an important principle in observing complexions, that is, “luster” is more important than the “color”—luster is enough, regardless of the color, and lack of luster mostly denotes diseases.
