3.2.2 Stomach
The stomach is situated in the epigastrium.lts upper outlet connects to the esophagus by the cardia, and its lower outlet communicates to the small intestine through the pylorus.Its channel connects to the spleen, with which it is externallyinternally related. Its main function is to receive and decompose food, that is to say, the stomach receives and temporarily stores the food mass coming from the mouth through the esophagus while partially digesting it and then sending it downward to the small intestine. That is why the function of the stomach is normal when its qi is descending and abnormal when its qi is ascending. It is normal for the qi of the stomach to descend.After being digested and transformed by the stomach, the food content follows the qi of the stomach down into the small intestine so as to undergo further digestion and absorption.If the qi of the stomach ascends instead of descending, belching, nausea or vomiting will occur.The stomach and spleen which act in cooperation are the main organs carrying on the functions of digestion and absorption. It is said that "the spleen and stomach are the source of health".
