The Clock Continues: Kidney Time 5 PM – 7 PM

Do you experience long-standing worry and anxiety? Do you have an excess craving for sex? Do you experience dizziness or weak legs? Are you a low back pain sufferer? If so, you may want to understand how your kidneys may be trying to tell you something.

For the last several months, we have been learning about our 24-hour body clock. Each month we have covered a different organ so in case you missed it, you can read it from the beginning in my prior article titled,“Is Your Hose Kinked?” Be sure to review the archives for the last couple of months to read the articles that support the rest of the body clock. So far we have covered the lungs, the large intestines, the stomach, the spleen/pancreas, the heart, the small intestines and the bladder.*

Each organ has its very own unique set of tasks that it performs daily at a very specific time of day similar to your daily tasks or “in-box” at work. And, just like your life, your organs have to deal with an occasional “emergency” in their day. When your body has a stressor it can impact any number of ways and in the instance of the kidneys, you may find you get sleepy or irritable during this time of day.

The kidneys hold position number eight in the body clock. The clock starts each day at 3 AM with the lungs and passes the baton every two hours to a different organ throughout the 24-hour clock. This month, our focus will be on the kidneys which begin their daily routine at 5 PM and continue until 7 PM.

The kidneys have a number of functions including:

• Producing marrow
• Generates fear to keep us aware of danger
• Nourishes the ears to allow hearing
• Nourishes hair to keep it from turning gray
• Regulates health of sexual organs, uterus
• Governs your will or constitution to live

Often the following symptoms may accompany a kidney that is not balanced:

• Frequent urination
• Cold knees and feet
• Shallow and rapid breathing, difficulty inhaling
• Excess craving for sex, nocturnal emissions (with dreams)
• Dry cough that is worse late in the day
• Dry mouth
• Apathy, avoids speaking, restlessness

There are a number of ways to address an imbalance in the kidneys such as exercises like Yoga, Tai Chi or Qi Gong exercises.

We are continuing this series next month until we have covered all the organs in the 24-hour body clock. However, if you have low energy during this time or other times of the day, it could also be a food intolerance or adrenal stress. Pinpointing if this happens after you eat is a good indication of a food intolerance. If not, suspect adrenal stress in which case you could benefit greatly from my prior video release called the Tahiti Vacation Relaxation Technique.

Another way to address energy imbalances is through BodyTalk, a modality I use in my practice. A BodyTalk session can be done in person or remotely (over the phone or live video conference such as Zoom). Learn more about BodyTalk and schedule a session.

Distress or Chronic Stress

Distress or chronic stress is uncontrollable, prolonged, or overwhelming stress. Once stress becomes distress, the body manages to survive though not always to thrive. For example, when faced with periods of chronic stress, the body’s immune system function is lowered, and the digestive, excretory, and reproductive systems no longer function the way they should. In a state of distress, the cells of the immune system (and other body systems) are unable to respond normally and produce levels of inflammation which increase the risk of further health issues.

Homeostasis

Homeostasis refers to your body’s ability to regulate itself and maintain a comparatively stable internal environment despite external and internal conditions and events.

Your body is designed to be in a state of homeostasis, where all the systems within are functioning optimally.

Stressor

Stressor is anything that is perceived by the body as challenging, threatening or demanding.

Health Story

In the context of My Wellbeing Compass, your “Health Story” represents the combination of your dis-eases, conditions, symptoms and the history that binds them together. It is multi-layered and multi-dimensional. Unearthing and resolving the root causes at the core of your Health Story is the only way to truly rewrite this Story.

Natural Self-repair Mechanisms

The body is made up of intelligent, living cells that are dynamically connected. They communicate and just know what to do and when to do it in any given situation. They grow, replicate, repair, and age. Every 90 days, the body has a new bloodstream; every year, it manufactures billions of new cells; colon cells refresh every 4 days; the skin is entirely regenerated every 2-3 weeks; white blood cells regenerate in about 1 year; the liver renews itself at least once every 2 years; and the skeleton replaces its cells entirely every 10 years.

You are an incredibly complex, interactive, and dynamic living organism that is well-equipped with self-repair mechanisms that can fight infections, eliminate toxins, fix damaged DNA, destroy cancer cells, and even slow down aging.

This natural self-healing ability (also referred to as cellular intelligence or body’s innate intelligence) explains spontaneous remissions from seemingly “incurable” diseases.
