Abstract: In visceral manifestation theory of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), spleen and stomach are coupled viscera and usually, they are also mentioned together. However, their physiological and pathological characteristics, and therapeutic Methods and suitable formulas and herbs for spleen and stomach are all different. The differences in pathogenesis, pattern manifestations, therapeutic Methods, formulas and medicinals between spleen and stomach are analyzed and summarized based on Ye Tianshi’s clinical records. The therapeutic Methods for different levels of spleen yang deficiency and stomach yang deficiency are elucidated in detail with specific medical cases, for examples, Li Dongyuan’s therapeutic method of replenishing qi and upraising yang, and therapeutic Methods of Linggui Zhugan Tang, Lizhong Tang and Fuzi Lizhong Tang for warming spleen yang, and therapeutic Methods of Dabanxia Tang, Wuzhuyu Tang and Fuzi Jingmi Tang for regulating stomach yang. In some circumstance, spleen yang deficiency and stomach yang deficiency may appear simultaneously, and they should be treated together or in proper order according to pattern manifestations. It is hoped to provide reference for clinical diagnosis and treatment of spleen-stomach diseases.
