This meridian stores the essence of life, and is essential for conception, pregnancy, and childbirth. The kidney influences the energy and activities of all the other organs. Being the root of life, it is the most vital organ

As one ages, kidney energy weakens. It rules the bones and the bone marrow, which in turn produce blood. Since the brain is considered the sea of marrow, the kidney controls the physical movements directed by the brain. Teeth, being surplus bone, is controlled by the kidney. It energizes hearing, and controls balding and graying.

The kidney meridian starts on the bottom of the foot, travels along the inside of the ankle, and continues along the inside of the thigh. Then it travels parallel to the middle of the abdomen along sternal border, and ends at the collarbone.
