The kidneys, bladder, ureters and urethra form our body's urinary system, a very clever filtration system that helps excrete waste products from our body. This is its most well known function; however the urinary system is also responsible for electrolyte balance, some hormone production and plays a role in maintaining healthy blood pressure.
Traditional Chinese medicine looks at this system a little differently. The Kidney organ-meridian is thought of as the battery of the body. This is where the body's “life force” or Jing is stored; the Kidney is considered to be the foundation for good health and optimal life expectancy.
At Fusion® Health we look at this system from both a functional and traditional view point to help relieve health concerns such as cystitis and urinary frequency and complaints that encompass an energetic element such as fatigue and insomnia. We have embraced both the ancient energetic principles of traditional Chinese medicine and the clinical concepts of western herbal medicine, to help strengthen the kidneys and promote optimal health of the urinary system.
