TCM's view of the organ systems differs when compared to that of Western Medicine. The Kidney system, for example, is responsible for reproductive development, aging and reproductive problems. The Spleen system is responsible for making Qi (vitality/ energy) and Blood. Since the Heart and mind are interconnected energetically and through pathways son the body, it is an important aspect of calmness, wellness, and an even emotional state. The Liver system travels through the reproductive areas, through the breast, through the chest are to the head. PMS signs are usually due to blockages in this system.
