TCM views health as a dynamic balance between yin and yang. Disease develops when this balance is disturbed. TCM generally distinguishes between "external" and "internal" pathogenic factors that can cause disharmony of yin and yang. Other causes of diseases are:

  • Constitution: Quality of inherited congenital constitution (jing), constitution of mother during pregnancy, birth events and miscarriages.
  • Diet: Malnutrition or excess, inferior-quality diet, imbalanced diet, poor eating habits.
  • Unbalanced lifestyle: Overwork, stress, physical, mental, or emotional strain, lack of exercise, sexual problems.
  • Trauma
  • Parasites
  • Treatment errors
