Kidney Meridian

Complaints, that can be treated by strengthening the kidney Meridian:
Premature signs of aging (greying, hair loss, hearing loss, etc.)
Cold sensitivity, lower back pain, osteoporosis, bad teeth, weak knees, night sweats
hyperextensible joints, hot soles, ponderousness, rheumatic diseases, circulatory weakness
edema, period complaints, prostate gland troubles, effusions, swellings, urinary tract troubles,
menopause complaints,
kidney problems, dry tongue, dizziness, forgetfulness, weak sexual activity, menopausal symptoms
Viscous, cloudy urine means Yin deficiency (general weakness).
Pale, abundant urine, means Yang deficiency (lack of activity, listlessness, unawares).

What belongs to the extended kidney function?
Bone, bone marrow, teeth, body fluids, reproductive organs. Ears,
growth, hair, lower body orifices (bladder, anus)

Although the lung leads the breath air into the body, it is the kidney function that takes it as an energy (Qi) into the body. Therefore the inhaled air causes a strengthening of the whole body.
Hence, a kidney weakness also leads to a reduced efficiency.

One can recognise a declining nephritic energy also by the hair.
Shining, strong hair indicates a healthy, powerful kidney function.

The kidney energy also nourishes the brain (a special form of the bone marrow).
A strengthening of the kidney energy promotes the intellectual movability.
And with that the ability to take new ways.

Excessive heat in the body (for example by too much hot food, too much permanent stress)
or too much dryness (for example by drink too little constantly) reduce the body liquids.
