The Anatomical Identity of the Spleen in Chinese Medicine
In modern Chinese, the spleen is designated by the character pi 脾. The accuracy of this translation is shrouded in controversy and some commentators have speculated that pi is, in fact, the pancreas, which is currently called yi 胰.
In this TCM.ac Talk Dr. Tom Fleischer, Ph.D., Dip.CM traces the original identities of the pi and yi in pre-modern China to determine the tissues they referred to. The Talk also addresses related issues such as the physical perception of the body versus that of the qi perception of the body and more.
