The kidney is an important organ in our human body, especially for men. Nowadays, many men experience kidney deficiency. Do you know what symptoms men experience when they experience kidney deficiency, and how should men self test for kidney deficiency in their daily lives? Let's take a look together now.
Male self tested kidney deficiency
1. Lumbar soreness and leg pain
A more obvious symptom of male kidney deficiency is the occurrence of back pain and leg pain. When this happens, we usually experience kidney deficiency due to sitting in the car for a long time with a stiff body, coupled with mental tension during driving, which eventually leads to qi stagnation and blood stasis.
2. Chilly limbs
Many men may experience a fear of the cold, often accompanied by prolonged physical stiffness in the car, as well as nervousness during driving, leading to qi stagnation and blood stasis, ultimately leading to kidney deficiency.
3. Dizziness, weakness, insomnia, and dreaminess
The kidney is an important organ in our human body. When kidney deficiency occurs, dizziness, weakness, insomnia, and dreaminess can occur. As one of the important organs in the human body, it nourishes and warms other organs. If other organs remain ill for a long time, it is easy to damage the kidneys. Many chronic diseases, such as chronic hepatitis, coronary heart disease, bronchial asthma, hypertension, etc., are often accompanied by symptoms of kidney deficiency.
Due to kidney deficiency and inability to absorb qi, it can cause shortness of breath, excessive exhalation and insufficient inhalation, making it difficult for you to breathe freely. In severe cases, accompanied by asthma, symptoms such as increased wheezing and cold sweating may also occur.
5. Frequent urination and urgency
Generally, the frequency of nocturnal urination is more than 2 times, or the urine volume exceeds 1/4 of the whole day. In severe cases, nocturnal urination occurs once an hour, and the urine volume is close to or exceeds the daytime urine volume. This situation is considered as "nocturnal polyuria". Normal urination during the day and frequent urination at night are the characteristics of this condition, often caused by weak kidney qi.
6. Erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation
Traditional Chinese medicine believes that the kidney stores essence. Kidney essence produces kidney yin and kidney yang, which nourish and warm the five organs and six organs. Kidney yin and kidney yang are interdependent and mutually restrictive in the human body, maintaining the physiological balance of the body. If this balance is disrupted or one side declines, pathological changes will occur, and men will experience symptoms such as impotence, premature ejaculation, slippery semen, and semen diseases.
7. Dizziness and tinnitus
Many people have experienced a feeling of dizziness, which is not pleasant due to blurred eyes, spinning around, and nausea and vomiting. Moreover, dizziness patients often have tinnitus, which hinders hearing and can even lead to deafness in the long run.
Constipated people often experience symptoms such as anal fissure and hemorrhoids due to difficulty in defecation, which affects their work and life and is unbearable. Although constipation belongs to the conduction dysfunction of the large intestine, its root cause is due to kidney deficiency, as the kidney opens the door to the two yin and governs the two stools. The conduction of stool must be stimulated and nourished by kidney qi to function properly.
Low back pain is fundamentally due to kidney deficiency and can be divided into internal injury and strain. Internal injury kidney deficiency generally refers to congenital deficiency, prolonged illness, physical deficiency, or excessive fatigue.
How to Nourish the Kidney for Men
1. Take care of your own feet
Keeping feet warm is a way to nourish the kidneys. This is because the kidney meridian originates from the soles of the feet, which are easily invaded by cold. Therefore, special attention should be paid to keeping your feet warm, and do not face the air conditioner or fan directly when sleeping; Do not walk barefoot in damp places for a long time.
In addition, there are many acupoints on the sole of the foot, such as Yongquan acupoint. The kidney originates from the spring, and the spring is full of heart. Before going to bed every night, you can massage the spring acupoint on the bottom of your foot to nourish the kidney.
2. Keep your bowel movements smooth
Poor bowel movements, stagnant stool, and the accumulation of turbid qi can not only cause restlessness and irritability, chest tightness and shortness of breath, but also damage the kidneys, leading to low back pain and fatigue, nausea and vomiting. Therefore, maintaining unobstructed bowel movements is also a method of nourishing the kidneys. When bowel movements are difficult to relieve, you can use both hands and the back of your hands to press and rub against the kidney area, which can stimulate kidney qi and accelerate defecation; When walking, pressing and rubbing the kidney area with the back of both hands can alleviate the symptoms of low back pain.
3. Drinking water to nourish the kidneys
Water is the source of life. Insufficient water may cause retention of turbid toxins and increase the burden on the kidneys. Therefore, regular drinking water is an important method for nourishing the kidneys.
4. Don't bear to urinate
When the urine stored in the bladder reaches a certain level, it stimulates the nerves and produces a urination reflex. At this point, it is important to go to the bathroom in a timely manner and urinate thoroughly. Otherwise, the accumulated urine will become watery and turbid qi, damaging the kidneys. Therefore, timely excretion of urine is also one of the best ways to nourish the kidneys.
5. Swallowing saliva and nourishing the kidneys
The saliva in the mouth is divided into two parts: the clear and sparse part is saliva, which is controlled by the spleen; Thick saliva, dominated by the kidneys. You can do an experiment where you spit out saliva as soon as you have it in your mouth, and in less than a day, you will feel the soreness in your waist and fatigue in your body. This in turn proves that swallowing body fluids can nourish and protect the kidneys.
6. Dietary kidney protection
There are many foods that can tonify the kidneys. In addition to black sesame seeds, black fungus, black rice, black beans and other black foods that can nourish the kidneys, walnuts, leeks, shrimp, sheep waist and other foods can also play a role in nourishing the kidneys.
7. Sleep Nourishing Kidney
Adequate sleep plays an important role in the biochemistry of qi and blood, as well as the maintenance of kidney essence. Clinically, it has been found that many patients with renal failure experience excessive staying up late, excessive fatigue, and insufficient sleep. Therefore, do not stay up too late, develop good daily habits, go to bed and wake up early, which is beneficial for the maintenance of kidney essence.
