Female is Yin, male is Yang.
Female is more emotional and the body helps to balance the emotion by regular periods, discharging bloods also help to expel negative energy.
Whereas male does not have such advantage. And male tends to keep their emotions buried, harmful to the body system.
Perhaps that is why statistically on average male has shorter life span.
As human being, we all have emotions. Since male does not have periods, how do male release their acquired negative emotions?
Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic (YEIC) identifies “Liver has the function to release and rediate Qi, hence bloods”, assisted by gallbladder.
How to understand such?
YEIC further says : “Liver manifests its stored emotion in dispersing qi and Gallbladder qi is descending”.
“Liver has function in thinking and strategizing, Gallbladder in decision making” “Liver Stores Creativity”
黄帝内经曰 : “肝主疏泄，胆主通降”，”肝主谋虑，胆主决断”，”肝藏魂”。
Hence healthy male manifests his natural ability in rational thinking and decision making, with flexibility and creativity. And male has the responsibility to be the breadwinner for the family.
A good quality attribute of Leader is strong Liver Qi and Gallbladder Qi.
But some male fail to exhibit such attributes. And they habitually drink wine to release, and using the drunken state to scold people, release his anger. After he becomes sober, he is as timid as a mouse again.
Weak Liver-qi and Gallbladder-qi make such male indecisive, worrying type. They hardly can achieve anything in life. With improper diet, they get sick easily with gallbladder stone etc.
Many organisation members exhibit such weak attributes. They take no initiatives, only to act according to boss’s instruction.
Many gamblers, avoiding making decision, indulge in casino hoping luck comes their way.
Some males go the other extremes. They are impulsive as they do not think through thoroughly before making decision. They want to be instant hero only met with more failures. Their Liver-qi and gallbladder-qi are in excessive.
Some with uncontrolled liver-qi, scold and insult people without reasons, like some bosses. In the end they get high blood pressure and stroke or diabetes.
Even though female has periods to regulate their emotions, they also face many challenges, as they often feel unhappy, that result in all types of illnesses also.
Perhaps God is fair, giving different challenges to males and females.
This discussion involves a few key concepts which are elaborated in the 2-day YEIC training class , or On-Line training for overseas learners outside Malaysia.
“Organs functionalities 五脏六腑功能”， “Liver function in dispersion of Qi 肝主疏泄，Gallbladder Qi descends 胆主通降”，”Liver function in strategizing 肝主谋虑，Gallbladder in decision making 胆主决断”，”Liver stores soul 肝藏魂”.
