TCM Syndrome Differentiation and Treatment
Functional dyspepsia belongs to the categories of "sufficiency", "stomach pain" and "noisy" in Chinese medicine. The disease is in the stomach, involving the liver and spleen. The main pathogenesis of the disease is the weakness of the spleen and stomach, unfavorable Qi, and gastric loss and depression. Under normal physiological conditions, the spleen governs transportation and transformation, the stomach governs receiving, the spleen governs ascending and the stomach governs descending, the spleen prefers dryness but disgusting dampness, and the stomach prefers dampness but disgusting dryness, and belongs to the soil in the five elements. The liver governs venting, sexual ecstasy, and the five elements that belong to the tree. Long-term emotional disturbance, depression and discomfort, stagnation of liver qi, loss of spleen and stomach, spleen and stomach disorders; overeating, overeating and cold, Failure of eating grains, obstruction of phlegm and dampness, failure of spleen qi, failure of stomach qi; deficiency of spleen and gastritis or injury of the spleen due to fatigue, deficiency of spleen and stomach, lack of transport of spleen and stomach, failure of middle qi, failure of water and gluten, and accumulation of phlegm and dampness, which in turn makes qi machine in middle qi Abnormal lifting and lowering; weak spleen and stomach, loss of vitality, dampness in the water, stagnation in the valleys, stagnation of dampness for a long time, heat stagnation, cold and heat mutual formation of the gastric cavity. The above will eventually cause gastrointestinal motility disorder, chest tightness and choking at the top, abdominal distension and pain at the middle, and constipation at the bottom; if the stomach gas does not fall but rises, belching, acid reflux, vomiting, heartburn, etc.; Swelling of the stomach, swelling of the stomach, anorexia and early satiety, and self-interested bowel movements.
