Colon HealthGreen icon of healthy colon

The colon, also known as the large intestine, is pivotal in water and nutrient absorption from partially digested food. Structurally, it is divided into distinct segments: ascending, transverse, descending, and sigmoid (Ley et al., 2006, Nature). Optimal colon function is characterized by regular, pain-free bowel movements without complications such as bloating or bleeding.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the colon is classified as a Fu (Yang) organ, intricately linked with lung energy, particularly active between 5-7 a.m. (Cheng, 1987, Chinese Acupuncture and Moxibustion). Emotional states like sadness and grief are theorized in TCM to influence colon health, suggesting a psychosomatic dimension to gastrointestinal well-being (Wang et al., 2017, Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine). However, further empirical research is needed to validate the correlation between emotional states and colon functionality (Chen et al., 2017, World Journal of Gastroenterology).
