In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the kidney is the seat of procreation. It is the vitality center of the body. It is the clarity of our thinking, our ability to regenerate our body. It is a gift from our parents, the Western equivalent of DNA.
The kidney system supports the body’s reproductive organs (ovaries, uterus, testicles, prostate), the reproductive material (sperm and ovum), and reproductive activity (sexual impulse, ovulation, ejaculation, fertilization, gestation).
As such, the kidney is defined as essential to the body’s youthful vitality. The development and regulation of the brain, spinal cord, bones, teeth, blood and hair are all engendered by the kidney.
The kidney regulates the balance and circulation of the liquid substances in the body, including tears, saliva, mucus, urine, sweat, cerebrospinal fluid, synovial fluid, plasma and semen.
Traditional Chinese Medicine teaches that a weak or damaged kidney/bladder system can produce:
- Disorders of growth and development, including problems of fertility, conception and pregnancy
- Disorders of the central nervous system (multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy)
- Diseases of spinal column, bones, teeth and joints
- Disorders of fluid metabolism
- Soreness and pain of lumbosacral region
- Loose teeth & weakness of hearing and vision Sharp hearing and strong teeth indicate strong kidneys
