of Organic Pathology
This is a watershed phase. Here the
body shifts from a fast yang "proactive" counter-attack
to a slow yin type " delaying action". The goal
of a decisive outright win is abandoned and is replaced by
a goal of yin preservation the body's structure and priority
systems. The genes that are expressed at this phase are not
the genes of the "best solution", of longevity.
Cells are activating a complex and difficult group of genes
so as to continue to try to perform their specialized jobs
while also being active in the militia in a long drawn out
The up side of this phase is that tissues sometimes stay
in this phase for years and so delay a worsening of condition.
However, some tissues during the Deposition phase can become
plenty troublesome. The most common problem of a deposit being
laid down is that it will block or press on something important.
After a toxic incident and inflammatory reaction coronary
arteries can become congested in heart disease--atherosclerosis.
Gallstones can back up fluids and cause pancreatitis. Kidney
stones can block the urethra tubes and produce extremely painful
events. Hypertrophy of the prostate can impinge on the bladder
and alter urine flow. A benign tumor can press on brain tissue
an alter behavior.
These Yin stages, or chronic conditions, require aggressive
yet patient and persistent work to turn around.
