This pattern is affiliated with chronic fatigue syndrome, candida overgrowth, ulcers, gastritis and obesity and is characterised by a deficient spleen. In Chinese medicine the spleen comprises the entire digestive system and aspects of the circulatory system. In spleen chi sinking the digestive process is impaired and foods and fluids don’t move smoothly creating symptoms, in particular prolapse. The main cause for spleen chi sinking is the hectic lifestyle of constant rushing, financial stress (credit cards, loans, pay later schemes) which creates worry (which harms the spleen) and less and less time for rest, relaxation and sleep. Spleen chi sinking can also be caused by constantly trying new diets, and following fad diets leading to constantly changing eating habits; the keto diet, excessive consumption of cold and raw foods, overwork and overthinking.
