|North (Negative / Yin) Pole:
||South (Positive / Yang) Pole:
|Vasoconstriction - a decrease in the diameter of blood vessels, especially arteries. This results from activation of the vasomotor centre in the brain, which brings about contraction of the muscular walls of the arteries and hence an increase in blood pressure.
||Vasodilation - an increase in the diameter of blood vessels, especially arteries. This results from activation of the vasomotor centre in the brain, which brings about relaxation of the arterial walls and a consequent lowering of blood pressure.
|Vasoconstrictive action and creation of alkaline substances in the cells of organs; therefore being effective in sedation and relief of pain.
||Expanding blood vessels, and with increased vasodilation can bring about an increase in acidity of cells.
|Helping to fight obesity by balancing the protein activities of the body.
||Increasing protein action in the cells and increasing weight.
|Decreasing water in the body, benefiting body contouring.
||Distributing body water.
|Decreasing the activities of cells.
||Increasing cell activity.
|Increasing potassium in the blood.
||Increasing sodium in the blood.
|Decreasing unnecessary calcium ions and effectively treating arthritis and joint pain.
||Decreasing albumin amongst the protein fractions in the blood serum.
|Preventing coagulation of the blood.
||Increasing the erythrocytes of the blood.
|Preventing the growth of viruses and microbes.
||Increasing the growth of micro-organisms and viruses.
