The Large Intestine

The large intestine helps get rid of waste from your body. When the large intestine lacks what it needs, you might get constipated. If it has too much of something, you might have loose stool. A common issue is when the large intestine has "dampness-heat." This is often seen in certain types of stomach issues that make you go to the bathroom a lot. Signs of this problem include belly pain, feeling like you have to go but can't, diarrhea with pus and blood, a burning feeling, dark pee, fever, a yellow and oily tongue, and a fast heartbeat. In really bad cases, a person might even pass out or go into a coma. To help with this issue, it's important to balance the large intestine by getting rid of heat and dampness.
