Yin Is Solid & Yang Is Hollow

Yin balances Yang, and the other way around.

In Chinese Medicine (traditional or otherwise), the Solid Organs are Yin and the Hollow Organs are Yang.

The Solid Organs balance the Hollow Organs.

Yin creates Yang, and Yang creates Yin.

The Solid Organs create the Hollow ones, and the Hollow Organs create the Solid ones.

The Chicken creates the Egg, and the Egg creates the Chicken.


The Lung (3:00-5:00 a.m.) is a solid organ, and the Urinary Bladder (3:00-5:00 p.m.) is a hollow organ.

The Large Intestine (5:00-7:00 a.m.) is a hollow organ, and the Kidney (5:00-7:00 p.m.) is a solid organ.

The Stomach (7:00-9:00 a.m.) is a hollow organ, and the Heart Governor (7:00-9:00 p.m.) is a solid organ.

The Spleen-Pancreas (9:00-11:00 a.m.) is a solid organ, and the Triple Heater (9:00-11:00 p.m.) is a hollow organ.

The Heart (11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.) is a solid organ, and the Gall Bladder (11:00 p.m.-1:00 a.m.) is a hollow organ.

The Small Intestine (1:00-3:00 p.m.) is a hollow organ, and the Liver (1:00-3:00 a.m.) is a solid organ.


Anton Jayasuriya (Clinical Acupuncture, Revised Edition, 2001) wrote …

“The Zang Organs have the function of storing and are known as the ‘Solid Organs’. They are Yin in character. The Fu Organs have the function of digesting and absorbing food and excreting wastes, and are known as the ‘Hollow Organs.’ They are Yang in character. Although the different Organs have separate functions, they work in close co-ordination with each other to preserve the unity of the organism and to carry out its vital functions.”


According to Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty) …

“The Universe is not Yin-Yang. It’s Yin-Yang-Ning. It’s Yin-Yang-Ning-Ground. Win some, lose some, rain out some, break even some more, and deductible bankruptcy is superprofit.”

    According to Swami Nitty-Gritty …

    “Acids should be taken in the morning, and alkalines should be taken later in the day – Yang in the a.m., Yin in the p.m.”
