Dr. Betty 之前在一次聚餐上與新朋友聊天,新朋友問到平常如何養生保健


 


 


我們都知道食材的選擇、及烹調的方式,都與我們的健康狀況有關。


 


 


可是除了懂得運用食療來達到養生的目的之外,更可別忘了運動的重要性!


 


 


其實坊間各式運動的方式: 例如快走、游泳、跳舞、打球等等,只要有機會我都會隨興參與,因為適度運動對身體的好處,不僅僅是提升新陳代謝、增強免疫力,更能使大腦產生腦嗎啡、釋放快樂因子進而舒壓。


 


 


為了提升自我能量,許多中醫師朋友們都加入練習氣功的行列,


而近來Dr. Betty,則固定每周都會練習YOGA


 


 


瑜珈,與氣功一樣,在身體律動的同時,深一層地加入心靈的調節 規律而有計畫性地時而被喚醒時而凝沉靜 這是為了達到人體內或人與外界的陰陽平衡


 


 


 


都知道萬物皆有陰陽,那麼,陰與陽在中醫學中,又扮演著甚麼重要的角色呢?


 


 


 


Episode 2


##陰與陽可同時相異且互補


 


 


“the concept of yin-yang is probably the single most important and distinctive theory of Chinese medicine.


 


 


The concept of yin-yang, together with that of qi, has permeated Chinese philosophy over the centuries and is radically different to any western philosophical idea.


 


 


In general, Western logic is based upon the opposition of contraries which is the fundamental premise of Aristotelian logic. According to this logic, contraries (such as “ the table is square” and “the table is not square”) cannot both be true. This has dominated western thought for 2,000 years.


 


 The Chinese concept of yin-yang is radically different to this system of thought: yin and yang represent opposite but complementary qualities. Each thing or phenomenon could be itself and its contrary. Moreover, yin contains the seed of yang and vice versa, so that, contrary to Aristotelian logic, a can also be NON-A.


 


 


 


(taken from The Theoretical Foundations of Chinese Medicine 1974, published by MIT press, London)


 


 


在西方亞里斯多德思想邏輯裡,主張兩個相異的事件不可能同時成立。


 


例如:


A這張桌子是方的,而同一時間,A這張桌子不是方的之說法就不可能成立。


 


 


陰與陽,則是代表著兩個相對立卻互補的現象或事物: 每各個體都可以是某物或其相反,甚至陰可衍生陽、而陽可衍生陰。


 


 


這與亞里斯多德思想邏輯中的 A” 不等於 A” 完全抵觸。


 


 


看似兩個相抵觸的邏輯,其實可運用在同一事件上。。。

今天的課題是不是很有趣呢?


 


仔細想想,也許我們在理解中醫的同時,更能explore自己的思考邏輯喔~
