Traditional Concepts, Modern Physiology
Water distribution: Where there is dampness, bacteria proliferate. Where there is dryness, cells become damaged.
As dryness and dampness get worse the low grade inflammation goes up.
This generalized immune response causes bacteria in the damp areas and your human cells to signal changes in DNA expression to become snotty.
This leads to systemic mucus in the intestines and the inflammation contributes to arterial plaques, amyloid plaques, and other gatherings of nasty
Qi and Blood
The blood carries gas.
Gasses in the blood open and close the vessels and cause steady cardiac contractility.
Blood carries gasses, signaling gases and gasotransmitters.
Blood carries heat shock proteins and compounds which can create chain reactions of anti-inflammatory effects throughout the body
Dyness causing damp:
Lack of thirst
failure to wash the intestines like a low river becoming stagnant
Qi (gas) /blood (si wu tang endogenous antioxidants)
Deregulation of qi becomes dryness, and finally fire.
Deregulation of gasses in the blood contribute to progressively increasing inflammation and poor fluid physiology.
Deregulated blood becomes filled with bacteria, lipids, and eventually the relationship with inflammation signals mucus secretion.
Diarrhea is mainly cased by a failure to separate water and grain. Therefore, to disinhibit water is the best strategy.-Jing Yue Quan Shu
Sodium Potassium ATP Ase
Control the water pumps
Nitric oxide stimulates its release. Too much or too little cause its deregulation.
Gut dysbiosis (excess)
Deregulation of gasotransmitters influencing Na K Atpase
Within dampness there is dryness.
Spleen Engenders Phlegm
Most mucus produced in the body is in the GI tract
Produced along Epithelium
NO shown to maintain gastric mucosal integrity
Signal mucus in nasal sinuses
Spleen Governs the Flesh and Muscles
Heat shock proteins
Atrophy brought on by INOS in immobilized limbs
Nitric oxide treatment attenuates muscle atrophy
Spleen Governs the Movement of Gastric Juice
No regulates gastric acid
Stimulates or inhibits acid depending on dose
Spleen Governs the Postheaven
NO directly influence the activity of transcription factors
modulates upstream signaling cascades, mRNA stability and translation,
processing of the primary gene products
Spleen Yang is Rooted in Kidney Yang
Inflammatory joint problems from nsaids, GI problems,
HPA thyroid axis
Adrenal response, shit your pants in fear, evolutionary adaptation, vomit then run
ACTH and the microbiota
Heart and Small intestine
These results suggest that intestinal changes have relevance in the induction of systemic influence, as we will see subsequently. The small intestine wall presents both thickening and increase of the collagen tissue, which is proportional to the severity of heart failure. http://www.scielo.br/scielo.php?pid=S0066-782X2012000300011&script=sci_arttext&tlng=en
Heart and Small intestine
Cardiovascular-Decreased cardiac function can reduce bowel perfusion and so clearly impairs the function of the intestinal barrier.
