Hey there Team!
Right now I'm back in school for the next couple of days, at the International School of Osteopathy. The focus this time around is the stomach, pancreas and spleen. Now most of us have a pretty good idea of what the stomach does. It's where all lot of the digestion happens, right.
What about the pancreas? It has a couple of different functions, but mainly we think of this organ as regulating our blood sugar. Not a small job in this day and age, with all the processed foods and sugar everywhere around us.
But then it gets interesting. What do you actually know about the spleen? Do you even know where it is? You will find your spleen next to the rib cage on the left side of your body, between ribs 9-11. Here are a couple of cool things that the Spleen does.
Here is a video of just over a minute, giving you a quick overview of how things work.
I bet you didn't know all of the cool functions that the Spleen has. But now you do! As always, no one organ works alone in the body. So, to help the spleen with the defense work, go on the offense and take good care of your whole body.
I wish you all a spleendid weekend!
