Our vital essence – the inheritable energy that we get with us at birth, is located in the kidneys. If the essence is strong, the child will grow normally and emotions will develop in a balanced way. If the energy is weak, problems with physical or mental development and sexual maturation may occure.
As an adult, vital essence affects strongly our sexuality – libido, potency and fertility. Weakness of vital energy may express as infertility – weak and non-viable sperm in men, with no ovulation or absent of menstruation in women.
Kidneys are one of the most important organs that influence our body fluid metabolism. Kidney energy helps to process body fluids. When kidneys energy weakens, the body is unable to process fluids, which therefore causes frequent and abundant urination.
When our kidney energy is low we may have general cold feeling, including cold feet, we urinate very often and we may struggle with diarrhea.
At the other extreme, with low kidney energy, we may feel hot (especially in the evening), we may have hot feet, night sweating may occure and we may struggle with anxious sleep.
Kidney energy is the foundation of the whole body’s balance – kidneys help stomach to process food, spleen to digest, heart to pump the blood and small intestine to absorb the nutrients. Kidneys also moisturize the lungs, making the mucous membranes of the airways moist and our skin soft. They also help liver with its functioning. So when kidney function is disrupted then the liver function is disrupted and this can be seen in our nails and hair health.
The body tissues for which the kidneys are also responsible are the bones. Normal bone growth and development in childhood shows strong kidney energy. The older we get, the lower the kidney energy becomes. This is confirmed by the fact that older people do not heal fractures as quickly as young people. Older people often have problems with thinning bone structures (osteoporosis).
The kidneys are also responsible for the brain normal functioning (since the kidneys are related to the bones and bone marrow and bone marrow makes the spinal cord and spinal cord leads marrow into the brain). Strong kidneys ensure sufficient production of the marrow, which forms a strong spinal cord, which in turn is a prerequisite for a well-functioning brain.
Strong kidney energy manifests itself in quick thinking, strong focusing ability and good memory. When kidney energy weakens, the brain is no longer adequately supported and brain functions weaken – thinking speed drops and concentration difficulties may occur.
The lungs and kidneys are also closely linked. The lungs send fluid to the kidneys, which they process and return to the lungs as moisture.
Kidneys also affect the functioning of ears. If the kidney energy is weak, hearing loss, ear ringing, tinnitus and pinching can occur.
Kidneys are also responsible for the health of hair. When kidneys energy is low, hair become weak, thin and fall out. Also, hair turning gray at an early age are associated with low kidney energy. This low energy level is mostly caused by overwork, stress, tension and fear.
Kidneys energy weakness is also related to the poor dental health. Teeth as a bone extension stay strong and shiny when kidneys energy is high. When kidneys are weak, our teeth start to weaken and fall out.
Since the kidney health is mostly affected by our mood, then living in constant fear and distress is not recommended.
