Yin deficiency

Anyone can be Yin deficient, but it is more common as you age, especially in women going through “menopause”.One way to help Yin deficiency is with acupressure. Symptoms of Yin deficiency look like: hot flashes, ear ringing (tinnitus), vaginal dryness, fatigue, night sweats, dizziness, insomnia, easily angered or frustrated, nocturnal emissions, sore throat, chronic swelling of gums and chronic toothache. Use Kidney 6 (KID6) also known as the Shining Sea point to help relieve this uncomfortable symptoms. In the depression below the tip of the medial malleolus, bony bump on the inner side of the ankle. Press and gently stimulate for 5 seconds and stop. Repeat until you reach 30 seconds. Do this on both feet. Stay away from spicy foods, overeating hot sauces and use meditation to replenish Yin (fluids). Go to bed early before 11pm, as staying up late further depletes Yin.
