~ Fear ~
Fear includes both a chronic state of fear and anxiety, and a sudden fright. Fear depletes Kidney-Qi and it makes Qi descend.
"Fear depletes the Essence, it blocks the Upper Burner, which makes Qi descend to the Lower Burner"
Examples of Qi descending is nocturnal incontinence in children and incontinence or diarrhea in adults following a sudden fright.
In adults fear and chronic anxiety more often cause deficiency of Kidney-Yin and rising of Empty-Heat within the Heart, with a feeling of heat in the face, night sweating, palpitations and a dry mouth and throat.
