Food for Cervical Mucus and Kidney Jing?

Posted on July 29, 2015 at 6:30 PM

Question: I don't have a lot of cervical mucus, and my acupuncturist said it's because I don't have enough Kidney Jing. Any food advice?

 

Answer: "Jing" is a Chinese medicine term referring to "reproductive essence." We inherit it, and we can nourish it. Seeds, sprouts, nuts, and eggs are great choices (they support the "babies" of their species!). Also, seaweeds and algae. Being ocean foods, they're great for the Kidneys. And a special mention for Goji berries and flaxseeds.
