Zang fu system

The theory of the organs; the hollow organs (fu) transport and the solid organs (zang) store vital substances. Zang fu is the Chinese term used in Asian medicine to characterize the body’s complete organ system. The zang fu include the six solid yin organs (zang), which are located deep within the body and are responsible for manufacturing, storing, and regulating qi, blood, essence (jing), spirit (shen), and fluids; and the six hollow yang organs (fu), which are found closer to the surface of the body and which are all gastrointestinal in function.
