In the field of medicine traditional Chinese there is a unanimous opinion on the essential form of the triple heater. In general defines Sanjiao as a big Fu organ containing all the internal organs and is also used to locate the parts of the body. The upper part of the Jiao is the portion of the body cavity above the diaphragm, which contains the heart and lung. The Middle Jiao is the portion between the diaphragm and the navel, where houses the spleen and stomach. And the lower Jiao is the part below the belly button where is the liver, kidney, bladder, intestines and uterus. From its location, you can clearly see that the liver is an organ located physically in the Middle Jiao, then why lies you in the lower Jiao? This is due to the MTC considers that the liver and kidney share the same source, so they are closely interrelated and therefore is located along with the kidney.In general terms, the physiological functions of Sanjiao control activities of the Qi of the human body.
