What is Yin Deficiency?

Yin is a form of body fluid and life essence that is stored in the kidneys.  Kidney Yin represents a nest egg of nourishment which lies deep within.  Yin is responsible for the restoration and revitalization of every organ system in the body which governs growth, the reproductive system, bone health, controlling the flow of urine, and the brain.

Yin can be likened to a well, a reserve of nutrients, which mustn’t run dry. (Daverick Leggett).  In our fast paced world, in which we are overworked, under nourished, and depleted we pull on our Yin reserves and consume our stores.  A Western medical example of yin deficiency can be adrenal fatigue.

As the Yin fluids in the body decrease, there is a perceived sense of heat increased in the body.  This can manifest as night sweats or hot flashes, being thirsty in the middle of the night, or having your cheeks appear rosy in the evenings.  This heat is only in relation to the decline of Yin fluids in the body and not a true form of heat.   Yin deficiency can have a number of symptoms, which can be seen listed below.
