I want to share some ideas based on Western research and Chinese medicine of what happens in the body when the adrenal function is weak and (in relation to) the kidney Jing.
So, the kidneys are connected to your head hair.
“I lost these (head hair) – starting to – when I was really stressed out in college. Hard to believe – but it happened.
And at that time, I didn’t know how to take care of it. So it just kept on losing. “
But if you get your adrenal stabilized in terms of strength and get your body mineralized, it will reverse the process.
Head hair, hearing, people who have a hard time hearing – tinnitus – and it’s connected to the bones, connected to your digestion, how strong the whole digestion is, and connected to your bowel movements. And there’s a lot of people who are constipated, and part of it is because the kidneys’ energy is weak.
Because the kidneys – even though it is a water element – there is also a fire element to it. It’s a very interesting way of looking at this from the energetic aspect of it. It’s connected to your lower dan tian. So the lower dan tian is where your power center is. In yoga, they always refer to it as your core.
Lower Dan Tian is Weakened
So your core is actually this lower dan tian. It’s translated into as Lower Burner, literally.
So the energy burns upward, supporting your whole body.
It translates to: when your lower dan tian is weak, your lower back is also weak, or your lower back may be in pain.
And it’s connected from your hip downward.
So sometimes, weak legs, weak knees and ankles – anything that has anything to do with your legs and your hip – any weakness in this part is connected to your kidney Qi being weak.
Immune System is Weakened
And then it’s connected to your immune system. How it goes is that your kidneys’ energy supports your bone marrow. And your bone marrow is the thing that makes the blood, makes the immune cells. Well, that’s one aspect of the immune system because we also make all the T-cells from our thymus.
Usually, chronic adrenal issues lead to some level of blood deficiency. Because once your bone marrow becomes weak. It’s unable to make all the platelets and then the white blood cells and all this stuff. You know, then, eventually, your blood becomes weak. You’re stepping into the realm of anemia. Of course, without saying, your energy level is low all the time.
Circadian Rhythm is Off-balance
And then it causes your circadian rhythm to be off-balance. Usually, we would wake up in the morning feeling energized, and then we go about our day, and then in the evening or like in the late afternoon into the evening where we feel more relaxed and start to slow down, and then we go into the sleep state.
But then, when your adrenal and kidneys cannot regulate this process, people usually wake up feeling tired, and then after lunch, they feel exhausted. And then in the evening time, they feel hyper, so they cannot go into a good deep sleep.
Fertility & Lovemaking
So, and then, the other aspect that is very important in connection with the kidneys is in our fertility. This is one of the main causes of when women’s sexual system starts to dry out. Like it’s not as “juicy and plump” as it used to be. And then for men to lose their erectile strength. All of these things are connected to your kidneys.
So in terms of fertility, it’s the ability to make babies and all this stuff, or even to have proper lovemaking, you need to have strong kidneys and adrenals.
So, this part of it is so important in terms of how it supports your whole body in many, many functions that it is worth your effort to put into it to rebuild it. Because without rebuilding your inner strength, it’s very difficult to improve many other things in your body.
