Tao Te Ching, by Lao Tzu (translation by Master Ni, Hua Ching)
So what is it we are overlooking when we undervalue Yin? Yin has the qualities of earth and water. Yin is substantial, cohesive and gives depth and weight. It is passive, open, yielding and hidden. It's only resistance is its own nature: weight and inactivity. Left to itself, yin is static, or will flow downward with gravity. Yet it holds and contains, collects and stores and therefore, nourishes and sustains. It is the abundant valley of the world. Yin endures. I like to call Yin 'Dark Matter'.
If we are over-consuming our Yin (whether due to over-activity, or because it was deficient to begin with), we begin to lose our endurance and reserves. We become over-reactive and hypersensitive. Growth slows or even stops (this is more physical in children and more psychological and spiritual in adults). We lose the dimension of depth and life becomes more and more superficial. The sense of flow, the feeling of support and having what we need fades. It's at this time we need to support the flow of our energies and create balance within ourselves. Depending on what area of the Yin energy you feel the need for support our creations can give you a wider range of choice. All are supporting to our reserves especially since we all work so hard to help, we cannot become victims to our own expenditure of energy. We can take control of our lives again and get a chance to feel that stability. These are foods you can consume regularly. When you have made that life choice to find the creation that works right for you, there is the chance to have that creation for the entirety of a long and happy life : )

Excellent source of yin tonic, meaning deep nourishment for our Kidneys. All Yin in the body comes from the Kidneys. Yin is the reason they are referred to as the root of our vitality! With their position close to the bottom of the major organs, they are a store house for vital life energies.
What is Yin and why should I restore it?
If I had to explain it in one sentence this would be it:
It is the foundational energy that every action we make on every level uses to create existence.
It is connected to our skeletal system, ligaments and musculoskeletal structure of the body. It is connected to the Liver and Kidneys, which clean and filter our blood, water metabolism, remove waste, is in charge of reproductive organs and supply our cells with nutrients. Tonics like Chaga, He Shou Wu, Reishi and Goji Berries when taken over time bioaccumulate to restore this Yin energy. Giving our bodies the reserves of restorative energy whenever the occasion arises that we need to pull from it.
Examples of reasons the body will need use of this store house of energy are stress, cold/flu, lack of sleep, depression, fatigue, and many more symptoms that we might dismiss for a while till something more serious shows itself. Immune disorders already existing are a great reason to consistently be taking something to give back to your body what it has had to use.
