Sex, Vitality, & the Role of the Kidneys

Sex, Vitality, & the Role of the Kidneys

February 10, 2010, 6-8pm
Greenstar’s Meeting Room
Amanda Lewis, L.Ac

In Chinese Medicine, the kidneys are considered the foundation of the body, the root of all “yin” and “yang” aspects. How vibrant we feel has a lot to do with the strength of our kidneys, as they govern growth, development, reproduction, sexual health, and our ability to handle to stress.

In February’s class, we will talk about how acupuncture, diet, and the use of certain herbal remedies and supplements can be used to address these basic aspects of health that the kidneys regulate:

- Energy, Warmth, & Sexual Vitality
- Growth & Development of the Mind & Body
- Urinary & Reproductive Health

At the end of the class, we'll take a tour through Greenstar, highlighting the various foods and supplements mentioned in the class.
