stomach

The Stomach is described as an emaciation chamber. It is responsible for beginning the breakdown of food to help the Spleen perform its function of transforming and transporting. The Stomach then sends the turbid substances down into the Intestines.

When the Stomach is injured instead of sending the turbid down, it can rebel and send it upwards: this leads to nausea, reflux and vomiting. The Stomach prefers dryness and warmth, but too much and it generates excessive heat, this leads to excessive hunger, foul breath and thirst.
