Kidneys and Dark Circles Under Eyes

If your kidneys aren’t being nourished well it results in poor blood flow in and out of the kidneys.  Strong, well-nourished kidneys are needed to support good blood flow and good health.

Symptoms of Kidney Insufficiency

Chinese medicine considers dark circles as a sign of weakness in the kidneys. Kidney weakness is due to exhaustion and overstrain coupled with lack of rest and relaxation. Since the kidney network in Chinese medicine governs the hormonal system, it affects the pigment melanin. It is said that unhealthy and depleted kidneys produce pigment deposits under the skin around the eyes and other parts of the face.

Dry skin, dry eyes, dark circles under the eyes, vaginal dryness for women, scanty urine, a pale face with flushed red cheeks, a red peeled tongue, a rapid pulse, fatigue, irritability, afternoon heat, night sweats, and hot flashes are some of the symptoms of poorly functioning kidneys. Emotional or mental signs can include agitation or even panic attacks, feeling tired but wired, a sense of floating, or of being drained.
