The left kidney in the human body is yang and the right kidney is yin. The left kidney is responsible for the function of the six organs, and the right kidney is responsible for the operation of the five internal organs. The kidneys play a vital role in warming, moisturizing, nourishing and stimulating the internal organs. The vitality in the kidney, also known as the essence, is the driving force of life. Kidney deficiency weakens vitality, and various diseases will follow.

Sleep to replenish the kidneys
Traditional Chinese medicine believes that sleeping and tonifying the kidney is the most effective, but you must know the methods and precautions to receive it. How to sleep to nourish the kidney?

Due to the large implantation area and less pressure, the body is easier to relax, and the relaxation of the body plus a certain posture can quickly fill up the yang and kidney qi.
Kidney Yang Qi is equivalent to the true fire of the Vital Gate – the key to the size of a life force is to see whether the Yang Qi of the Vital Gate is sufficient. Putting this posture is to be more conducive to the adequacy of kidney yang, and the effect of this formula is obvious.

This posture can not only replenish kidney qi but also relax the head, and has a good therapeutic effect on insomnia and neurasthenia. The upper arms form a circle, which can make the kidney qi not go to the genitals, but pull to the depths of the middle umbile; The lower legs form a circle, which is conducive to the circulation of qi and blood along the legs to the body.
