Kidney deficiency, as a traditional Chinese medicine concept, is divided into many types. The most common ones are kidney yin deficiency and kidney yang deficiency. Symptoms of kidney yang deficiency include low back pain, chills in limbs, chills, and even edema; The symptoms of kidney yin deficiency are "heat", mainly including low back pain, dry heat, night sweats, deficiency sweats, dizziness, and so on.
In addition, long-term kidney qi deficiency and kidney essence weakness may also cause discomfort in other parts of the body, which can be observed from some details. The introduction of professionals in ancient Chinese medicine is as follows:
Yawning and lack of energy. "The kidney is the foundation of the birth, and the essence stored in the kidney is the original driving force for human life activities. If the kidney essence is sufficient, it is energetic and physically abundant;"; "If the essence in the kidney is insufficient, and the spirit and body of a person are not sufficiently nourished, then the spirit becomes tired and yawns repeatedly.".
Hearing loss, tinnitus, and upset. In traditional Chinese medicine theory, the five senses of the eye, tongue, mouth, nose, and ear correspond to the five internal organs of the liver, heart, spleen, lung, and kidney. The auditory function of the ear is closely related to the rise and fall of kidney qi, and good hearing in the kidney is good. Conversely, when there are symptoms of tinnitus, anxiety, and hearing loss, kidney yin deficiency can be considered more.
Loose teeth. "The kidney governs the bone, and the bone is nourished by kidney essence. Only when the kidney is good can the bone be good.". In addition to teeth, the quality of bones directly affects the quality of teeth. Therefore, there is a close relationship between the kidney and teeth. If the kidney is deficient, the bones will lose their nourishment, and the teeth will become unstable, causing problems with tooth looseness. Both kidney yin deficiency and kidney qi deficiency can cause tooth loosening.
Hair loss or premature graying of beard and hair: According to traditional Chinese medicine theory, "hair is the essence of the kidney, and looking at the color of hair reveals kidney qi." Insufficient kidney qi, or excessive thinking, can affect hair. Under normal circumstances, after the age of 40, there will be white hair, which is because as the age increases, the essence of the kidney gradually decreases. If you cannot nourish your hair, it will become white. This is a natural phenomenon of Jingtiange Health Information and does not require treatment. However, if the hair turns white suddenly for a period of time, it is mostly caused by the disorder of qi in the body, and treatment should be taken for the cause.
Waist discomfort. "The waist is the" mansion "of the kidney. When kidney essence is insufficient, the mansion is not well fed, and there will be prompts such as low back pain, which must be taken seriously.".
Memory declines and becomes "forgetful". On the one hand, kidney essence should nourish the bone, on the other hand, it should also nourish the brain. Once forgetfulness often occurs, it indicates that your kidney essence is insufficient, your bone marrow is depleted, and your teeth have hidden dangers.
Reminder; When caring for patients with kidney deficiency, it is necessary to first identify their own causes in order to improve the corresponding symptoms of kidney deficiency. The common causes of kidney deficiency include the following: congenital deficiency; Emotional disorders, moodiness, and excessive emotions; Excessive housing fatigue; Injury of kidney due to prolonged illness; Old age and infirmity. In addition to correcting the etiology, tonifying the kidney should also be based on syndrome differentiation, first of all, determining whether it is kidney yang deficiency or kidney yin deficiency. "Yang deficiency replenishes yang, and yin deficiency nourishes yin, otherwise it will backfire.".
