The kidney meridian is a yin meridian and is paired with the urinary bladder yang meridian. It is a water element and is very important in maintaining and processing your body’s fluids. One of the important functions the kidneys provide is to filter toxins out of the blood supply. Many illnesses, especially in the lungs, can be traced back to weak kidney energy and functions.
