According to TCM, the kidneys are the fountain of youth, the foundation for a healthy, vital life and graceful longevity. In TCM, the kidney is the foundation for growth, development, and reproduction; for healthy bones and marrow; and for brain functions such as memory, concentration, and intelligence. The kidney regulates fluid metabolism; supports keen hearing, healthy hair, and strong sexual function; it also supplies us with willpower and motivation. Between the two kidneys, at the small of the back, resides the ultimate life force known as the “The Gate of Vitality.”
Black Beans and kidney beans are thought to tonify the Kidney Qi and nourish Yin and Blood.
Foods that Support the Kidney in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) are:
