recieving of food and drink
(holds down, sea of qi and blood, part of appetite)
rotting and ripening
(food qi extraction sent to spleen)
transportation of fd essences
descending of qi
Which Fu is the origin of fluids? What does this mean clinically?
(origin of qi and blood)
used to regulate qi and blood in the lower limb and treat atrophy disorder, painful obstruction, hemiplegia, and pain of all kinds
Foot Yangming = Yang brightness = very full of yang qi
how can we use this to help in clinic?
important points to clear excess of yang in form of febrile heat, or heat which rises to disturb HT and spirit
Spleen qi _____ while ST qi _____.
Spleen likes ____ while ST likes _____.
SP suffers from ________ deficiency while ST suffers from ____ deficiency.
SP easily becomes _____ while ST easily becomes _____.
ST system symptoms
bad breath (excess pattern)
distention/pain in epigastrium
anxiety (stomach fire goes to heart)
poor sleep (not enough blood goes to HT)
SI is known to hold office of what? What does this mean?
office of receptacle of plenty
it issues the transformation of substances
What does SI connect to?
connects to Pylorus (ST) and LI
Explain SI's function of separating clear from turbid
receives food and drink from ST and sends clear substances back to the spleen....
it also removes excess water and sends turbid waste to LI
Which FU organ (that's not UB) can influence urination?
What does SI's relationship w/ heart allow? How can it protect the heart?
allows SI to influence clarity of choice and decision making
protects heart from yang excess attack
distention/pain in epigastrium
UTI: scanty or bloody urination (SI overheated --> send heat down to bladder to protect the HT)
Fu of the hand yang ming channel? What f/x can it have?
LI --> partic replete w/ yang qi
clear excess yang in form of heat and fever
Who does LI connect to?
SI and anus
What does lI control?
control passage and conduction of digested food and liquid
transforms food and reabsorbs fluids to maintain fluid balance
LI system symptoms
chronic diarrhea (LU qi deficient, KD yang def; think
constipation (LU qi AND KD yang/yin(
loose stools, blood or mucus in stool (dampness; SP QI not controlng blood)
abdominal distension, pain, IBS (LV Qi stagnation )
chest distention, cough/wheeze (LI excess heat dries up lungs)
Name/role of BL?
administrator of waterways
holds fluids in reserve and control release,
maintain fluid volume
receives fluids from SI for separatioin, trans, and excretion (SJ helps)
transforms fluids into urine and excretes (HT and LU Qi descend to hep)
action which comes from KD Yang and is aided by LV Qi's free flow
Bladder system symptoms
Which "office" does SJ hold? what does this mean?
office of irrigation design
it's the "water pathways" in between ZF as well as the space inside the ZF....so it's not a physicla organ, but a group of physiological functions with a channel
3 divisions of SJ
upper (diaphragm up): LU, HT, PC; fluid is a
middle (between diaph and umbilicus): ST, SP, LV, GB;
lower burner (below umbilicus): SI, LI, BL, and JD;
F.x of SJ
mobilize yuan qi
or provides passage for its flow
controls transportation and penetration of
controls water passages and excretion of fluids
by linking the LU, SP, and KD who are responsible for water passage --> aka
San Jiao Qi Hua

the uterus chnnel
connects the uterus to the KD and HT
Uterus relationship with
SP- root of post heaven qi and source of qi and bood --> THUS if spleen blood deficieny = scanty menses
LV- store blood for menses --> deficient = scanty or amenor. and stagnation = painful and heat = heavy flow
