There are many factors in the human body which can effect Spleen such as lack of exercises, overwork, too much worry, overeating unhealthy foods, and fatigue. When the Spleen in the body will get weak and the Liver is facing many hurdles to work properly, the Liver can attack the Spleen and can show many other signs of Irritable Bowel Syndrome.


A Spleen or Liver dissonance is just the same as to the short-term loss of hunger or diarrhea that happens at the time of any emotional upset or something like that.
