Every session we are going to focus on 1 meridian/organ. We start with the spleen.
In TCM the Spleen, is the sister of the yang organ stomach, ( next session). We choose to start with the spleen because is an organ which tend to be overused in our society.
Spleen energy is affected by cold en wet whether. Unfortunately this is something we cannot do nothing about.
Food en emotional states can feed or deplete the spleen energy, affecting its functioning.
Spleen has 4 basic functions:
Transportation & transformation of food in Qi.
It keeps the blood circulating in body and meridian.
It houses the body thought & intention.
It controls the muscles and the 4 limbs.
We will go deeper in some of this functions later.
