Digestive Disorders, Traditional Chinese Medicine

The spleen plays a major role in traditional Chinese medicine when it comes to gastrointestinal disorders. In Chinese medical theory, the spleen is the organ primarily responsible for transporting the “food essence” throughout the body, including excretion. Partnered with the stomach in a Yin/Yang relationship, the spleen should be in a state of dampness while the stomach should be relatively dry.
