Treatment Plan for Spleen tonic
While the western medical definition of a spleen refers only to the organ, the Spleen system of Traditional Chinese Medicine encompasses the digestive and assimilative functions of the pancreas, small intestine, and other organs. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, spleen and digestive tonics are indicated when there is digestive weakness with such symptoms as gas, diarrhea, water retention, and also fatigue. Another important use of spleen tonics is for disease involving immune weakness or dysfunction, including cancer, AIDS, chronic and fatigue syndrome.
