The root of our being is the Kidney Qi. Only part of the Kidney Qi’s role is urine output.
When suffering from deficient Kidney Qi, here is a loosening of everything – feeling untethered. Frequent, maybe scant clear urination, inability to last the night without getting up to pee – often many times. In men, dribbling after peeing, strength of urine flow diminished, with possibly weakness in sexual vigour.
Feeling cold, tired, low backache, maybe dizzy, with ringing in ears, need to be lying down by preference. If there are uncomfortable upper gut feelings, possibly also Spleen Qi weakness – then digestive issues also.
