The kidney (shen) is responsible for regulating water throughout the body. Another crucial part of its role is to store the vital essence (jing) which is one of the five fundamental substances of life.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, this is a very popular meridian to regulate and restore vital energy (qi) to circulate throughout the body.
So, here's how the kidney meridian can help re-connect your yin and yang...
What is the kidney meridian?
In the eyes of TCM, the kidney has an important role to play to help regulate water metabolism, by helping the lung to co-ordinate respiration by directing qi downwards.
Possessing a strong kidney qi will lead to consistent, regular breathing whilst weak qi will impact inhalation, which can lead to 'deficient' asthma.
What are the functions of the kidney?
Within the kidney, the vital essence can produce many potential health boosting functions such as...
- Creation of bone marrow
- Improved memory
- Well-developed skills
Without this vital essence, the effects may turn to poor memory, low spirit, lack of motivation/aspiration and accelerated aging.
What are the solutions?
Utilising Chinese herbal supplements is a fantastic and sustainable way to potentially boost your kidney health through the meridians.
