    There is another way that you can stop porn addiction, chronic masturbation and recover your sexual health without fighting it with willpower. With the right mindset you won't even relapse. You can learn more about the recovery program here

    If it grows in the air and sunshine, it is probably yang;

    If it grows in the earth or darkness, it is probably yin;

    If it is sweet, it is yang; if it is salty, it is yin;

    If it is fatty, it is yang; if it is lean, it is yin;

    If it is rich in sodium, it is yang;

    If it is rich in potassium, it is yin;

    If it is soft, wet and cool, it is more yin;

    if it is hard, dry and spicy, or needs heating up (such as meat), it is more yang.
