A Murky Balance

The introduction of two serpents in the Yin & Yang symbol results in a complex pattern. Thus there is a need for a golden centre to act as a focus. Neither the “fishes”, nor the serpents dominate in the design and it gives the picture a “muddy” look.

Traditional healers guided by the Yin & Yang philosophy explain sickness as an imbalance in the Self. Modern medicine is guided by science and uses the Greek Staff and Serpent as their symbol. The people with health-related complaints who do not want to be treated as patients, spend money on alternative treatments. This causes friction in the health care system. This results in “murky” money issues (represented by the gold in the center).
