A Healthy Digestion is the Foundation to Optimal Health
According to Oriental medicine, the digestive system is the foundation of our health and the production centre for what we call Post-natal Qi. It is believed Qi is divided into pre and post-natal energy. Pre-natal Qi refers to our inherited energy while post-natal Qi is related to the environmental and digestive energy. It is the latter that Oriental medicine mainly supports.
Oriental medicine practitioners believe that the centre of our digestive system is ruled by the Spleen and Stomach energy. These organs have the important role of transporting and transforming our food and fluids into Qi and Blood to nourish our body, mind and spirit. If any imbalances occur within the system, such as poor absorption of nutrients the health and function of the body will be compromised.
Joint aches and swelling, poor lymphatic circulation as well as fluid retention and dull, heavy headaches can also be symptoms.
Oriental medicine has always put greatest emphasis on digestive health being pivotal to the functioning of all other organ systems. In recent years Western research seems to be coming to the same conclusion with more and more focus on the importance of gut health and immunity.
