The theory underlying this ancient trend of thought (five elements) is fully expressed in the Yellow Emperor's Classic of the Nei Ching {黄帝内经 Huángdì Nèijīng}(Internal Health), and proves without doubt that anything that has a beginning also has an end; and that the end is the commencement of something new, and that from a maximum point there must be a decline to a minimum level, and vice versa.

The Nei Ching (黄帝内经 Huángdì Nèijīng), which is reputed to have been written by the Yellow Emperor and to be the oldest medical book in existence, is the classic work on Chinese internal medicine, and it states that "Yin is active within and is a guardian of the Yang, whereas Yang is active on the outside and is the regulator of the Yin" — equating harmony of the Yin and Yang with health and constant youthfulness, and disharmony with ill health, disease or death.
