Kidney essence, also known as Jing, is believed to be responsible for the vitality and strength of the hair. A deficiency in either blood or kidney essence can lead to hair problems such as hair loss, thinning, or premature graying. Therefore, maintaining the health of both blood and kidney essence is crucial for maintaining the condition of the hair.

    B. Blood Deficiency
    Explanation
    Falling hair may indicate a condition of blood deficiency. Blood deficiency refers to a lack of nourishment and circulation of blood in the body. This can lead to various symptoms, including hair loss. When there is insufficient blood supply to the hair follicles, it can result in weakened hair roots and subsequent hair fall. Therefore, blood deficiency can be a possible explanation for falling hair.

    • A.

      Kidney-Essence

    • B.

      Kidney-Qi

    • C.

      Blood

    Correct Answer
    A. Kidney-Essence
    Explanation
    Prematurely greying hair is believed to be associated with a decline in Kidney-Essence. In traditional Chinese medicine, Kidney-Essence is considered to be the foundation of all bodily functions and is responsible for nourishing the hair. When Kidney-Essence declines, it is believed to affect the hair's ability to maintain its natural color, leading to premature greying. Kidney-Qi and Blood are also important factors in overall health, but they are not specifically linked to hair color in the same way as Kidney-Essence.

This can be caused by various factors such as poor diet, chronic illness, or excessive bleeding.

This means that the person may experience symptoms such as inflammation, fever, excessive sweating, and a feeling of heat in the body, which are more prominent than symptoms related to Dampness, such as fluid retention or a heavy sensation.

Interior Cold refers to an internal coldness in the body, which can manifest as a greenish hue on the face. Pain can also cause the face to turn green due to the body's physiological response to discomfort.

    Rate this question:

  • 26. 

    Dark-bluish under eyes

    • A.

      Cold in Liver channel

    • B.

      Cold in Spleen/Stomach channel

    • C.

      Cold in Kidney channel

    Correct Answer
    A. Cold in Liver channel
    Explanation
    Dark-bluish under eyes can be a sign of poor circulation or stagnation of blood in the liver channel. The liver channel is responsible for the smooth flow of Qi and blood throughout the body. When there is cold in the liver channel, it can cause the blood to stagnate, leading to the appearance of dark-bluish under eyes. Cold in the spleen/stomach or kidney channel may cause other symptoms, but they are not specifically associated with dark-bluish under eyes. Therefore, the correct answer is cold in the liver channel.

    The given answer, "Cold, chronic pain," suggests that the symptom being described is characterized by a persistent, long-lasting pain that is accompanied by a sensation of coldness. This implies that the pain is not acute or sudden but rather a chronic condition. The mention of "Cold" indicates that the pain is associated with a cold sensation, which could be indicative of poor circulation or a lack of blood flow to the affected area. Overall, the answer suggests that the symptom being described is a persistent, cold pain that is likely chronic in nature.

This deficiency can lead to blood stasis, which is a condition where the blood does not flow smoothly in the body. Therefore, chronic pain can be a symptom of both Heart-Yang deficiency and Blood Stasis.

When the spleen is deficient, it can lead to poor digestion and absorption of nutrients, which can manifest as symptoms such as a red tip of the nose. This symptom is often seen in conditions like spleen qi deficiency or spleen yang deficiency. Therefore, the spleen is the most likely explanation for the red tip of the nose in this case.

    Explanation
    Swelling under the eyes can be attributed to kidney deficiency. The kidneys are responsible for regulating fluid balance in the body, and when they are deficient, it can lead to fluid retention and swelling, particularly in the lower parts of the body, such as the eyes. Kidney deficiency can also cause other symptoms such as fatigue, frequent urination, and lower back pain. Therefore, kidney deficiency is a likely explanation for the swelling under the eyes.
