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. 

Healthy Digestion

The digestive system is the foundation of our health and the production centre for what we call Post Natal Qi. In Oriental medicine Qi is divided into  Pre and Postnatal energy. Pre Natal Qi refers to inherited energy while Post Natal Qi is related to the environmental and digestive energy. This is the one we can influence the most.

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. 

The energies of the Spleen and Stomach move in specific directions. The Spleen energy moves up and holds things in their places. If there are any problems, we will experience
bloating, diarrhoea or loose stools, gas and a heavy sensation throughout the body. The Stomach energy moves down and any problems here will result in indigestion, reflux, nausea or vomiting and frontal headache. Problems with absorption of nutrients, food allergies  (intolerances), changes in bowel function or weight gain/loss are also influenced by the functions of the Spleen and Stomach. If the Spleen energy is not functioning well we will also accumulate what we call Dampness in the body. Dampness can manifest as poor memory and concentration, increased worry, anxiety and obsessive thinking, fatigue and lethargy. Joint aches and swelling, poor lymphatic circulation as well as fluid retention and dull, heavy headaches can also be symptoms.
