The functions of the TCM Bladder
The Bladder stores and excretes urine, and performs necessary functions for the production of urine. When things are wrong with the Bladder there can be jealousy, suspicion, and the holding of grudges.
The functions of the Bladder are:
The dirty part of the fluids from the Small Intestine that is passed to the Bladder is what is transformed into urine. The Bladders function of transforming fluids requires the heat provided by the Kidney Yang. Therefore the Small Intestine and the Bladder are responsible for the movement of fluids in the low Jiao. This is also the route taken when disorders of the Heart effect the Bladder. When the Bladder is deficient there will be copious clear urine. The San Jiao and the Bladder also have relations because of their respective functions of transforming fluids in the low Jiao. The San Jiao makes sure the water passages are open and free in the low Jiao.
“When the Bladder is deficient, one dreams of voyages.” (Spiritual Axis).
The Bladder gets the Qi and heat necessary for transformation from the Kidneys. The Kidneys rely on the Bladder to excrete the dirty fluids.
