Fast Fact – Chinese Medicine – Digestion

CHINESE MEDICINE – DIGESTION
Digestion is under the control of the Pi (spleen) and Wei (stomach)

These organs pertain to the Earth element and are located in a space know as the middle Jiao or middle heater.

The stomach and spleen work as a pair in this middle heater: the stomach rots and ripens food and the spleen transforms and transports food and liquids into Gu Qi, which is the first step in creating new Qi and Blood.
