The term means spleen qi transports nutrients of food and drinks upward to the heart and the lung to transform them into qi and blood and to maintain relatively stable positions of the internal organs. In other words, this is part of the spleen’s function of transportation and transformation, i.e., the upward transportation of nutrients of food and drinks, which is closely linked with the transportation and transformation function of the spleen and the ascent of spleen qi. The spleen governs ascent of the clear, as opposed to the stomach governing descent of the turbid, means the spleen governs the absorption and upward distribution of nutrients of food and drinks. Only when the spleen properly governs ascent of the clear can the nutrients of food and drinks be absorbed, transported, and distributed in a normal way, can the nutrients be transformed into qi and blood, and can human body have vitality. Furthermore, ascent of spleen qi keeps the internal organs in their normal positions in the body and prevents organ prolapse.
