Disharmonies of Earth in the body
In Chinese medicine the [Spleen] is the primary organ of digestion. It receives the pure products of digestion of food (by the [Stomach] and [Intestine]) and transforms it into essential energy, which it is also responsible for raising to the [Lung]. The [Spleen] also transforms and moves [Water] around the body, corresponding to some of the functions of the lymphatic system. The [Spleen] rules the muscles, connective tissue, fat tissue and and the four limbs; their power depends on its strong function. Harmonious [Spleen] is reflected in the five senses and the appearance and sensitivity of the mouth, especially the lips and mouth cavity.
