China is a mysterious and attractive nation which can portray many aspects of Asia. When we talk about Chinese culture, one of the classic topics is, of course, Chinese medicine. “Yin” and “Yang” is the first phrase people think of and it means the balance between “Yin” and “Yang” inside of us by mediation of diet, mood and medicine.
