Soup to nourish yang and warm-you-up
Chinese Medicine theories believe that the kidneys store the essence, which is also the source of yang energy. Individuals with yang-deficient kidneys are especially afraid of the cold. Other symptoms include fatigue, weak knees and waist, involuntary urination, loose stools, and diarrhea between 3-5am. While men might experience erectile dysfunction, involuntary ejaculation, or premature ejaculation, women might go through menstrual cramp (can be relieved through warm compress), the absence of menstruation, or even have trouble conceiving. Hence, they need to warm and nourish the kidney yang.
Based on the Five Element theory, winter belongs to the water element and corresponds with kidney qi in the body and the color black. To warm and nourish kidney yang, we can consume black colored ingredients such as black rice, black bean, black sesame, black date, black fungus, sea cucumber, and black-boned chicken.
