Traditional Chinese medicine believes that kidney deficiency can be divided into yin deficiency and yang deficiency. Blind and disorderly tonifying not only fails to strengthen the body, but also leads to a situation where the kidney becomes more and more deficient. So what are the dangers of randomly tonifying the kidneys? When is the best time to tonify the kidney? Here we will answer for you together.
The harm of blindly tonifying the kidney:
1. Disrupting the balance of yin and yang in the body
Kidney tonifying drugs can either tonify yin or yang, which can disrupt this balance and cause diseases in normal individuals after long-term use. There may be symptoms such as dry mouth, restlessness, and acne, as well as decreased appetite, thick tongue coating, and constipation.
2. Exacerbate the condition
Kidney deficiency can be divided into kidney yin deficiency and kidney yang deficiency. The clinical manifestations and pathogenesis of the two are different, so when tonifying the kidney, it is important to first distinguish between kidney yin deficiency and kidney yang deficiency. If kidney yin deficiency is caused by the use of kidney tonifying and yang enhancing drugs, it is like adding oil to the fire; If kidney yang deficiency is caused by the use of drugs that nourish kidney yin, it is like adding insult to injury. Not only can it not be cured, but it will also worsen the condition.
3. Increase kidney burden
Under normal circumstances, most of the plant proteins consumed by humans are metabolized and ultimately become nitrogen-containing waste, which is excreted by the kidneys. In old age, the ability of the kidneys to excrete waste decreases. If people do not pay attention to their diet and consume a large amount of tofu, excessive intake of plant-based proteins will inevitably increase the amount of nitrogen-containing waste generated in the body, increasing the burden on the kidneys and not conducive to physical health.
Seizing the Time for Tonifying the Kidney
Kidney tonifying also needs to be timed. Some people dream of losing 5 times a month and still want to tonify their kidneys, but they end up losing it on the same day and that night. Isn't that nonsense? So when is kidney tonifying?
1. The interval between nocturnal emissions is less than 10 days, and one cannot eat kidney tonifying foods or drugs because they are not replenished due to deficiency. They can only drink walnut distraction wood water, which can prevent and treat neurasthenia such as ejaculation, slippery semen, insomnia, and drowning.
2. When a person's dream emission interval exceeds 10 days and there is no morning erection phenomenon, it is time to take appropriate supplements, and it must be a dietary supplement.
3. When the duration of dream emission exceeds 15 days, it is necessary to increase the amount of nourishment, also known as dietary supplement. The longer the interval between nocturnal emissions indicates that the muscles and veins are relatively unobstructed, and the seminal vesicles are also relatively firm, which can control nocturnal emissions. However, there has been no morning erection phenomenon, and the consumption of yang qi is relatively high, indicating that the kidney is still relatively weak at this time and needs to be replenished.
Kidney tonifying is a profound and simple science. Before administering medication, one should first understand one's own physical condition and prescribe appropriate medication, dietary therapy, or medication. It is recommended that patients with kidney deficiency consult traditional Chinese medicine before taking tonics, and avoid indiscriminate use of folk remedies or unproven remedies to avoid personal injury.
