It is thought there are two ways in which blood is produced for use throughout the body. As will be seen, in Chinese medicine, the Spleen, Stomach, Lungs, Heart, and Kidneys all have important roles to play in the development of blood. 1.Transformation of blood Food and Drink are transformed into Blood, starting with the Spleen.

Qi (vital Energy) from a TCM Perspective Western medicine places strong emphasis on the physical structures of the body, which are made up of different organic and inorganic substances, proteins, tissues and cells.

Instead of emphasizing discrete body components with cells being the basic building blocks, the body is seen as a whole entity with connecting parts that work together to sustain life.
