I once treated a 29 year old female patient with the main symptoms of complete lack of sexual desire, vaginal dryness, fear of having sex, low back pain, frequent urination, and even being afraid to drive out due to frequent urination. My menstrual cycle is low, my appetite is poor, my body is afraid of cold, my hands and feet are cold, and my face is dark and dull. The patient told me that my body was very normal, because I had to lose weight and basically didn't eat normally, resulting in my body becoming weaker and weaker, and I had to come to see a doctor.
This is a typical example of congenital kidney deficiency caused by acquired deficiency of the spleen and stomach. "The kidney is the foundation of birth, and is responsible for storing essence, sex, reproduction, growth, and development.". However, the innate essence stored in the kidney needs to be constantly supplemented by the water and grain essence digested and absorbed by the acquired spleen and stomach in order to maintain the normal function of the kidney. If you eat inappropriately, become too hungry or full, and damage the spleen and stomach, making it unable to digest and absorb water and grain essence normally, the human body cannot receive normal nutrition, and the innate essence cannot be supplemented normally, which can damage the normal function of the kidney.
Kidney deficiency, dysfunction of the main sexual and reproductive functions, will lead to decreased sexual function and low libido; Deficiency of kidney yin, deficiency of body fluid, and loss of nourishment of the vagina can lead to vaginal dryness; If the kidney yang is weak and the body cannot be warmed, there will be a general fear of cold and cold hands and feet; "Kidney deficiency cannot control water, and dysfunction of the function of urination can lead to frequent urination.".
The patient has basically recovered after treatment focused on tonifying the kidney. However, this phenomenon of improper weight loss should be noted. Inappropriate weight loss is a common phenomenon among women, causing serious physical damage, and even leading to anorexia and ultimately death due to weight loss. At the same time, all female friends should know that women must also maintain a normal weight and appropriate subcutaneous fat, otherwise they cannot maintain physical health and normal curves.
From the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine, excessive weight loss is mainly caused by excessive hunger (improper diet), which can damage the spleen and stomach, spleen deficiency can lead to kidney deficiency, and kidney deficiency can lead to premature aging, which also runs counter to the original intention of losing weight and loving beauty.
