"Empty heat" is a term used to describe the concept of "kidney yin deficiency" - so they are both saying the same thing somewhat. Empty heat is the idea of signs of heat, such as nightsweats, but coming from a deficiency. In this case a deficiency of yin - the cooling aspect of the body. This is opposed to full-heat or a yang or fire condition that is coming from excess. How you approach treatment depends greatly on the clarify of the diagnosis.
For a general description of empty heat, I would suggest you read "My Kidneys are What?" - which is a general introduction to the concepts of "kidney" system imbalances from a Chinese medicine perspective.top Login/Comment
