Our Spleen Yang is that which controls our food assimilation and hence the quality of all our Blood and other raw ingredients. Often when the Spleen energy is upset we carve sweet taste – please do not think that if you want it – you need it – the addiction to the sweet taste is a health destroyer.
When upset – especially by the invasion of cold, or by excessive ‘stress’ – when our Liver Qi gets too upset goes horizontal and attacks the Spleen directly – this function, as with all the digestive ones, and our abdominal contentment can just give way.
Undigested bits of food show up in the stool, we can’t eat and support life well, and there is often a dampness – hence mucous and possibly blood also in the stools.
This may lead to hernias, varicosities, prolapses, bleeding problems, and gut disorders – heartburn, reflux and IBS being the common ones.
Our lymphatic and immune systems are totally dependent on our Spleen Yang. All cancer and other illness issues are directly tied to the health or otherwise of our gut. When the Spleen energy is weak, we start getting diarrohoea, maybe always loose stools, and if more severe – with undigested bits in them.
