Kidney Yin


hi there,

I have a question abput Jing and my question is what is the difference between Kidney Jing and Kidney Yin, because I read on some website that Kidney Jing can be considered a part of Kidney Yin, but also that Jing is the source of Kidney Yin and Kidney Yang in the body. I don't understand this



Welcome to Chinese Medicine.... not everything here is linear certainly. In very general terms you can think of qi as your day to day energy from food, kidney yin and yang as your savings account and jing as a trust fund. If you have a poor day to day lifestyle and don&#39t supplement your qi (your checking account). To supplement your checking account your body will pull from the kidney system (yin/yang) (your savings account). And if you run it all dry through illness or very poor lifestyle or simply through the aging process you tap into your trust (the jing). When your trust is gone, you have nothing else to fall back on.

In general jing is the deepest energy we have, the spark that lets us come back from very low places and that which provides the magical component of fertility, etc. The general theory is that we are born with a certain amount of jing and when that is gone we are gone. We prolong it&#39s levels by maintaining proper yin/yang balance and supplementing our qi.

For more basics, read "My Kidney&#39s Are What?" and possibly look through common kidney disharmonies to see the depth differences between yin deficiency and jing deficiency for example.


as described in the above is in essence one of the eight extraordinary vessels?

#4 A friend&#39s frown is better than a foe&#39s smile. Лучше хмурое лицо друга - чем улыбка врага. Ср. Лучше горькая правда друга чем лесть врага. Недруг поддакивает а друг спорит.

#5 Ест как верблюд а работает как осел.
