The autonomic nervous system is typically divided into two main subsystems, the sympathetic nervous system and the parasympathetic nervous system. These tend to balance each other, offering opposite and yet complementary effects reflective of the philosophy of Yin and Yang. The sympathetic nervous system deals with the response to stress and danger, releasing epinephrines (adrenaline), and in general increasing activity and metabolic rate. The parasympathetic nervous system counters this, and is central during rest, sleeping, and digesting food and, in general, lowers metabolic rate, slows activity, and restores blood pressure and resting heartbeat, and so forth (Chamberlain and Narins 2005). Just as Yin and Yang are opposing, yet complementary and interdependent forces, the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems complement each other and are both necessary to create overall harmony and balance in the living organism.
