The Stomach is paired with the Spleen, the Stomach receives and digests food. It also stores food and water. If Stomach chi is weak, food stagnates and all manner of digestive problems arise, such as flatulence and Indigestion.
The Stomach meridian is home to many important points related to digestion.
“The Stomach and Spleen are like warehouses where one stores all the food and essences. They digest, absorb, and extract the food and nutrients.” – Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Medicine
In the process of digestion, the Stomach is responsible for moving the food along the digestive tract, which is a downward motion. The Spleen is the other organ of digestion in Chinese Medicine. The Spleen is responsible for absorbing nutrients and moving them upward to nourish the heart, lungs, and brain.
