the spleen It is an organ located above the stomach and below the ribs (on the left side). Chinese medicine considers this organ to be the center of the body with the theory of spleen and stomach or Pee Wei Lun. Therefore, this medicine offers remedies to take care of the health of the spleen so that the body is in balance.
What is the spleen for according to Chinese medicine?
We live on a planet where water and earth constitute life and energy. Water nourishes the earth and earth creates and sustains life. Life is born in fertile soil. Let’s look at nature a little more and thinkIsn’t it true what our wise Chinese ancestors said?
By observing the human body and its interrelationship with nature, ancient Chinese sages created a human energy map so delicate and wonderful that it still survives. famous book Huang Di Nei Ping (Book of the Yellow Emperor) lays down the pillars of Chinese medicine by understanding this relationship between nature and the human body.
It evolved from one of these pillars theory of the spleen and stomach Pi Wei Mon:.
Chinese medicine makes a difference energy or Chi: vital two types. Chi: light blue and Chi: land area.
It Chi: the sky is stored in the kidney and is inherited parents though need to feed Chi: of soil produced by the spleen from food. Hence the importance of the spleen as a vital and active organ. its mission is to nourish the kidney, an organ that stores hereditary basal material.
In China, when a person has a good character, they say they have a good character. Chi: spleen Why?
According to the five element theory: the spleen belongs to the Earth element and occupies the centerwhere it connects with the other four elements. Its main function is called Yun Hua (transport and conversion) and make a pair Yin Yang with the stomach.
their taste it is sweet and feeling is related to it reflectionconcern and thinking without valid arguments.
It domains of the spleen spread to the musclesthe content blood so as not to get lost organ support in place and hair nourishment among others.
Its organic fluid is saliva.is station which represents end of summeris climate element that humidity and his color that yellow.
Translating what was said the spleen is the center of the body.
His work is on the one hand transform (wow) digested food from the stomach into pure and nutritious substances Chi: Y: xue: (energy and blood)two fundamental elements of the body, and on the other hand. move them (and a) to the lungs (for oxygenation through breathing) and to the heart (for the constant pumping of blood) so that distribution is complete and wastes move down into the intestines for elimination.
The relationship between the spleen and the stomach
Between the spleen and the stomach, a very fine and delicate balance in Y: Yang:. The basic balance depends on it.
The stomach is a very yang organ and likes water and cold, but not the spleen; excess moisture and water weakens Chi: and inhibits its activity.
The spleen is an organ in but who performs an activity as a whole Yang:. For example, the first organ that receives the water we take in is the stomach, but water cannot reach the kidney directly; to convert and move it Chi: spleen, and this happens with all substances that enter through the mouth.
The stomach and spleen are like the headquarters of a company. It is where all functions and extensions come from, where life is created and every living thing is formed. as well said “we are what we eat”.
Why does the spleen get sick?
It the reasons why the spleen gets sick they are multiple, and Chinese medicine divides them into two types: internal and external.
The reasons external include: climatic factors (heat, cold, wind, humidity, dryness…) and hemorrhages as a result of accidents and injuries.
Internal causes include excessive physical and mental fatigue, deterioration and weakness caused by other diseases, blood loss, emotional disturbances (anxiety, dizziness, frustration and fear); improper eating habits (irregular or monotonous eating) and extra rest.
It effects caused by spleen dysfunction they are countless.
Simplifying, the five element theory is based on the interaction of the five vital organs. That is, the “mother organ” creates or generates the “son organ” and simultaneously controls the grandchild; if the mother is sick, the son is sick. if the son is weak, he demands more from the mother; and the mother also succumbs to her grandson’s rebellion.
spleen and stomach are the fundamental basis of existence, but precisely because of their daily and immediate function they are very vulnerable. If the spleen and stomach do not produce enough Chi: and blood, evils arise like this fatigue, anemia, insomnia, gas, abdominal pain, excessive hunger, organ failure, cold extremities, constipation or diarrheaamong many other diseases.
How to care for the spleen
- Moderate raw food. The spleen is the organ of maximum in, and it does not contribute to the cold. it is necessary Yang: develop their work, therefore, Especially in winterraw and cold food is not to his liking.
- beware of sweets. Sweet tones it, but excess can seriously damage it.

What happens if your spleen is removed?
Energy is a very subtle thing. A person without a spleen or with only one kidney still has one energy in the appropriate place with the help of other organs, as its “mother organ” or “daughter organ”, in tissues, meridians and even acupuncture points.
Note that the body works together and not with independent organs. The relationship of the five elements in this case is the plot they weave and where they come together and form.
After the spleen is removed, its meridians continue to function with the help of the stomach and other organs such as the lungs, kidneys, liver and heart. The organism is capable of self-regulation in such an extreme case.
