Staff Clinical Notes

For liver qi stagnation that causes reversal of the downward flow of qi.  In TCM if the liver qi is stagnant, it may disrupt the normal downward flow of qi from the stomach to the spleen.  This may cause the sensation of plum pit qi which is the sensation that something is stuck in the throat.  If the downward flow of qi is blocked it can cause damp and phlegm to accumulation in the stomach which could manifest as vomiting and nausea.
