[ Kidneys and liver rejuvenation ]
In modern Science, the kidneys may be playing the role of maintaining the composition of blood by removing waste and excess water, however the kidney system in TCM has a broader range of functions. A person’s growth, maturation and reproduction is also believed to be governed by the kidneys. The essence stored in the kidney is bestowed to each individual from their parents at conception, hence TCM regards the kidney as the “congenital constitution” and origin of life.
The kidney essence is critical for growth and development, and normal aging process will see both vitality and essence decrease. After birth, kidney essence increases gradually and becomes abundant as the body develops. During the early years, the individual undergoes physical changes marked by permanent teeth, hair and height growth. During adolescence, kidney essence peaks to drive the maturation of organs and form the basis of our ability to reproduce.
Energy levels are at its highest and bones are strong during middle age. However, it goes downhill thereafter. Kidney essence depletes and the functions of the organs decline with advancement in age, showing worrying signs of senescence such as deafness, hunchback, hair and teeth loss. Imbalances in kidney essence, ‘qi’, yin or yang can affect the growth and development of humans, resulting in development disorders, congenital mental retardation, soft and weak bones in children and premature aging in adults.
The kidney is the most fundamental organ system of your body, which holds the genetic blueprint of your inherent body constitution and how healthy you will be. Whether yin or yang deficiency, it is essential to trace back to the kidneys’ reserves and address the issue immediately.
Because emotional disharmony, which causes Qi Stasis, lies at the root of many energetic imbalances, the liver, which is responsible for the free flow of Qi, often is thought to be involved in healthy sexuality. This concept is particularly important because the Liver Channel wraps around the genitals in men, and the reproductive organs in women, and is closely related to reproductive capability.
