Adrenal insufficiency and adrenal burnout is very common.
Medically, yin also means the tissues are loose and often disintegrating or in disarray, the structure is weak, osteoporotic or tending to become this way, and the person tends to be weak, tired, depressed, anxious, cold, with low thyroid activity, low adrenal activity and often low hormone levels in general. One may also be anemic.
The person also is older than his or her age in terms of health, and more prone to all diseases for this reason. This is not quite the same as lower in vitality, although it often works out that way. Their bodies tend to be more delicate and sickly.
Full of older female minerals. Those who are too yin are often loaded with the older female minerals such as mercury and copper, primarily. Others may include boron, chlorine, fluorine, bromine, and some forms of biounavailable iron.
Their bodies desperately need the balance of the newer female elements such as iodine from kelp. This will tend to cause the elimination of the older female elements such as chlorine, bromine, fluorides, and boron. They also need better types of copper found in some animal quality foods, in general, and the gentle newer male elements – zinc, selenium and silicon.
