• Body fluid is formed from the food and drink after its digestion and absorption by the organs Spleen and Stomach. The distribution and excretion of the body fluid mainly rely on the spleens function of transportation, the lungs function of dispersing and descending and regulating water passages, and the kidney’s function of controlling urination and separating the clear and the turbid. Of the three organs, the kidney is the most important for this purpose.
After food enters the stomach, the vital energy of food essence and water is transmitted to the spleen, which spreads it to the lung. Then, the lung regulates the water passages and transmits the energy of water to the bladder below. The vital energy of water then spreads in four directions and travels along the meridians pathways. In addition, fluids sent downwards from the stomach continue to be absorbed by the small and large intestines. A part of the fluid, after passing through the spleen, lung and sanjiao <the process of digestion, absorption, distribution and excretion of the food and water are performed by the joint efforts of various organs, including the sanjiao. ‘The sanjiao is the passage of water and food.’> is excreted from the skin and hair as sweat. Another part of the fluid is sent downwards to the bladder via the waterways of thhe sanjiao, and excreted from the body as urine, with the assistance of the vital energy of the kidney and bladder. When the body fluid reaches the skin and hair on the exterior and penetrates in the interior, thus nourishing all the tissues and organs throughout the body.
The formation, distribution and excretion of the body fluid is a process resulting from the coordinated activities of the lung, spleen, and kidney. Any pathological changes in these organs may consequently affect the formation, distribution and excretion of body fluid. If there is insufficient formation or excessive loss, means the body fluids may be damaged or consumed. A disturbance in distribution of body fluid may lead to its accumulation, resulting in retained fluid and oedema or the formation of phlegem. If body fluids invased by the heart by retained water produces palpitations, retention of fluids in lung results in cough with asthematic breathing, and dryness of the intestines leads to constipation.
