Warming Chicken & Cabbage Soup

In Chinese medicine Kidney yang relates to our adrenal health and hormones - mainly progesterone and testosterone. As we age, our adrenal and hormonal function begins to decline, and sometimes it happens at an earlier age due to excessive physical overwork, lack of sleep or genetic predisposition.


Symptoms of Kidney yang deficiency include: dull/achy pain in the lower back, weakness or cold feeling in the knees, frequent pale urination, weakness in the bladder, loose & watery stools, swelling in the lower body, impotence, infertility, fatigue, lack of motivation, feeling cold easily or cold limbs, lack of thirst, and loss of hearing.

This soup feels like a warm hug! It is perfect for for anyone experiencing adrenal fatigue, infertility, low hormones, achy back or knees, or cold symptoms. It is a great anti-aging soup too!
