The combination syndrome of Liver and Kidney Yin Deficiency usually exists after a period of Liver Yin deficiency, Liver Blood deficiency and/or Kidney Yin deficiency.
(If you’ve just reached this page through some kind of online search, it may seem very theoretical, full of weird words and links. That’s because it’s explaining some very real and experienced feelings and bodily sensations that probably displease you. Chinese medicine is very practical and the links will lead you, I hope, to understanding why you’ve got these symptoms and how to do something about them, other than take anti-inflammatory medication, painkillers or expensive toiletries!)
What pushes it to this next stage is the continued or extra pressure of big emotions.
Of course these emotions could have been causing Liver Qi stagnation for some time, which can itself lead to Liver Blood stagnation and eventually Liver Blood deficiency.
The big emotions that push the original syndromes over the edge include:
These emotions can arise from relationship problems, financial problems, abuse, humiliation and such-like.
For this syndrome to occur, these emotions usually have been going on for some time: you don’t reach this syndrome overnight or from an overnight transformation!
As it develops, the symptoms of Liver Blood and Liver Yin deficiency occur more frequently, together with growing signs of Kidney Yin deficiency.
Bearing in mind what the Liver energy does, this means that the following begin to appear more often:
You can bring this on yourself even faster if you do things that weaken Liver Blood (click the link for more on this) or overstretch Kidney function (- basically, you’ve been over-working).
If, in addition, Empty Heat appears on top of this, you get other symptoms – see here.
Many of these symptoms in the upper body or the head occur because Clear Yang cannot ascend properly, so cannot bring with it enough Blood. Eg, blurred vision, deafness, dryness, deficient-type headaches.
