Keywords: Insomnia; Yang Qi; Monism


Professor Wang Xiaoyan applied the theory of "monism of qi" in traditional Chinese medicine to study insomnia, and believed that insomnia was caused by a variety of pathogenic factors, which affected the normal rise and fall of qi in various organs of the human body, and eventually led to the rise of yang, which could not be submerged. Yang did not enter into yin, but became sleepless. By "supporting yang", the yang returned to its place, and this group of vitality moved slowly and orderly in the human body, and yin and yang combined to sleep peacefully.
