Elwha River Deer Antler and Eucommia Bark: Behind the Name
We drew inspiration for this product from the majestic Elwha River, located in the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State. The Elwha River originates from glacial sources and flows northward until it converges with the Strait of Juan de Fuca.
The decision to name this product after the river was inspired by the awe-inspiring natural beauty and vital life force that the river and its surrounding environment embody.
Furthermore, there is a metaphorical connection between the Elwha River and the restoration of Kidney Qi, Jing, and Yuan Qi. Within the philosophy of Chinese medicine, the Kidneys are associated with the element of water and are believed to be the foundation of vital energy and essence within the body. A flowing river symbolizes life force, nourishment, and rejuvenation.
Inspired by the restorative natural beauty and vital life force of the Elwha River, our product aligns with the principles of Chinese medicine to restore and support Kidney Qi, Jing, and Yuan Qi. This connection links the wildness of the natural world to the natural flow of vitality within the body.

What is Kidney Yang Deficiency?
Kidney Yang Deficiency is a concept rooted in Classical and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that refers to an imbalance or insufficiency of the Kidney Yang energy in the body. Within the context of Chinese medicine, the Kidney is a vital organ responsible for maintaining overall health, well-being, creativity, vitality, and longevity.
Kidney Yang represents the warm and active aspect of the Kidneys, providing energy, warmth, and metabolic drive to the body's functions.
When Kidney Yang becomes deficient, individuals may experience symptoms such as fatigue, cold extremities, aversion to cold, weakness in the lower back and knees, frequent urination (with clear and abundant urine), impotence or reduced libido in males, menstrual irregularities or infertility in females, slow metabolism, poor digestion, and a tendency towards feeling cold.
In Classical and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), addressing Kidney Yang Deficiency involves tonifying and nourishing the Kidney Yang energy. This can be achieved through a combination of phytotherapeutic herbs, such as Deer Antler Velvet (Lu Rong; 鹿茸) and Eucommia Bark (Du Zhong; 杜仲), as well as acupuncture, acupressure, nutritional therapy, and internal arts like Qi Gong and Tai Qi.*
Balancing Kidney Yang can restore vitality, strengthen the body's foundation, and promote overall health and well-being.
