Foods to sustain the kidney...Kidney Yang Deficiency

This is a list according to the notions of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). There are two aspects to understanding the TCM kidney system, one is kidney yin and one is kidney yang.

To under stand this system, lets use an a car as the analogy:

The fluids of the car, which include liquids such as oil, break fluid, windshield fluids, transmission fluids....are the yin aspect of the car's body.

The yang aspect of this car are the breaks, the steering wheel, the chassis, the transmission, etc...This is the actual functional aspect of the car...the working part's if you will.

Without the necessary fluids and liquids, the car will burn up and breakdown. What happens when our car lacks these necessary liquids? The answer; It over heats....the heating up of the engine because of the lack of fluids is called YIN DEFICIENCY. Yin deficiency is heat.

If the car begins not not properly function, and it begins to break down, the car is then becoming YANG DEFICIENT. Yang is the functional aspect of our car...and because it can't run....Yang deficiency is cold.


First step is to determine if you or your pet is warm or cold. Does your dog pant most of the time? Or does the furry friend want to snuggle under the covers most of the time?

If your dog seems hot; this is YIN deficiency, conversly if your dog (or you) is cold, this is Yang deficiency (strictly dealing with the kidney system).

Here is a list of beneficial foods for both you and your dog for kidney yang. I will post kidney yin tomorrow. Keep in mind that dogs are meat eaters, so use this list with common sense for a dog. I want to post this list to benefit both you and your dog!
