Kidney is the foundation of human life

“Kidney is the basis of human life” was proposed by Zhang Daning, a master of traditional Chinese medicine, in the early 1980s. It is an important discussion involving basic theories of traditional Chinese medicine, clinical diagnosis and treatment, health and disease prevention, and longevity. Zhang Daning believes that the entire life activity of the human body has a direct or indirect relationship with the kidney. The essence in the kidney is the material basis of the entire life activity of the human body. Ancient people’s understanding of the importance of kidney “Kidney” is an important content of the theory of viscera in traditional Chinese medicine, which has been more comprehensively discussed in “The Yellow Emperor’s Internal Classic”. With the development of medicine, relevant theories and practical researches on kidney have been continuously deepened. “The Yellow Emperor’s Internal Classic” has unique insights into the importance of the “kidney” function. For example, “Su Wen·Linglan Secret Code”, when discussing the viscera, gives the kidney function “a strong official, skillful Yan’s position. “Zuoqiang”, which means “stronger than work”, refers to people’s “physical strength”; “trick” means “skill, dexterity, and intelligence” and refers to the “intelligence” of the human body. In other words, the physical strength and intelligence of the human body are the responsibility of the kidney. Coupled with the statement that the essence gas in the kidney affects the life span of the human body, the important position of the kidney in human life activities can be seen. “Difficult Sutra” specifically pointed out the concept of “life gate”, “the left is the kidney, the right is the life gate.” Zhang Daning believes that the essence of Mingmen is the kidney, and “Mingmen” is an integral part of the kidney. The proposal of Mingmen laid a foundation for the later generation theory of “the main fire of the Mingmen, the kidney yang”. The medical sage Zhang Zhongjing comprehensively discussed the common clinical renal diseases in “Treatise on Typhoid Miscellaneous Diseases”, and formulated effective treatments and prescriptions. The famous Bawei Shenqi Pills are derived from this. Later, in Chao Yuanfang’s “On the Origin of Diseases”, Sun Simiao’s “Thousand Gold Recipes”, Qian Yi’s “Straight to Children’s Proof”, Zhu Danxi’s “Ge Zhi Yu Lun”, Zhang Jingyue’s “Jing Yue Quan Shu”, etc. The deeper the understanding of the physiology and pathology of the kidney in the life activities of the human body, the more comprehensive the treatment of syndrome differentiation of various common clinical kidney deficiency syndromes. The Liu Wei Di Huang Wan, created by the Qian Yi in the Song Dynasty based on the theory of “Kidney Deficiency, No Reality” and “Everytime Care for Yin”, has become a classic prescription for nourishing kidney and yin in traditional Chinese medicine. On the basis of the systematic research of medical classics in the history of medical classics, Zhao Xianke of the Ming Dynasty put forward new theories through a long period of clinical practice, brought the kidney and life gate to the highest position of human life activities, and wrote “Medical Medicine”. Zhao Xianke believes that the fundamental life activity of the human body is “the life and fire of life”, that is, “true yin and true yang”, in fact it is “kidney yin and kidney yang”. B’s Liuwei Dihuang Pills; lack of kidney yang, that is, the lack of Mingmen Huo, Zhongzhong Bawei Shenqi Pills. The kidney is the foundation of human life. “Su Wen·Six-section Theory of Visceral Image” says: “The main sting of the kidney is the essence of the seal, and the essence is also.” The essence of the kidney includes the innate essence and the acquired essence. For the parents, the latter is derived from the food water valley and is derived from the spleen and stomach. Both are hidden in the kidney, and they are used for each other and depend on each other, becoming the material basis of human life activities. Kidney storage essence, refined qi, kidney essence belongs to yin, kidney qi belongs to yang, in a certain sense, kidney essence and kidney yin, kidney qi and kidney yang are the same, but there are differences in the use of clinical syndrome differentiation . Kidney yin is the foundation of yin fluid, and kidney yang is the foundation of yang qi. Therefore, the essence of kidney constitutes the material basis of the overall renal function of traditional Chinese medicine. In order to systematically explain the function of Chinese medicine kidney, Zhang Daning summarized the kidney function into the following ten aspects. The kidney is related to human growth and development. The process of human growth and aging stems from the rise and fall of essence in the kidney. “Su Wen·Ancient Naive Theory” said: “A woman is seven years old with strong kidney qi and longer teeth; from two to seven days, the sky is so long… Bad and childless. Husband is eight years old, kidney qi is strong, hair is long and teeth are more… Eight or eight teeth are gone” clearly points out the close relationship between human body growth, growth, strength, old age and the rise and fall of essence in the kidney . Strong qi in the kidney is young and long-lived, and inadequate qi is premature. Therefore, the clinical treatment of premature premature aging and health and longevity must start from the essence of the kidney. Kidney and Respiratory Function Respiratory function of the human body depends on the lungs and kidneys. Although the breath depends on the lungs, the inhalation of air is closely related to the kidneys. Kidney master breathing, “Dysmenorrhea · Four Difficulties” cloud: “exhale heart and lungs, inhale liver and kidneys.” In the Qing Dynasty, Lin Peiqin said in “Treatment of Syndrome”: “The lung is the main qi, the kidney is the root of the qi, the lung is the qi, the kidney is the qi, the yin and yang intersect, and the breath is peace.” Lin
