Connection between kidneys, adrenals and fatigue according to Chinese medicine
Yin Yoga, unlike other types of yoga, is based on a Chinese theory of meridians. In Chinese medicine ‘meridians’ are the energy channels or pathways that run through the body. They form a network, and if a network is disrupted or if blockages occur, the body and the organs will not function properly and imbalance arises. Each of the vital organs has its associated meridian. Since kidneys and adrenal glands are regarded as the body’s most important reservoir of essential energy, kidney meridian’s deviations and disruptions have major energetic consequences.
“When the kidney meridian is depleted, all the meridian energies in the body often become reversed, literally flowing backwards, causing you to feel utter exhaustion.” Donna Eden, author of Energy Medicine.
