Chronic atrophic gastritis (CAG) is a refractory disease of the digestive system. The basic pathogenesis is the weakness of the spleen and stomach. Although the deficiency can be manifested as a deficiency of qi, blood, yin and yang, the deficiency of qi is the first and foremost, and the liver and stomach are located under the diaphragm and belong to the middle jiao, which are physiologically related and pathologically connected, and are closely related to the movement of qi.CAG caused by liver and stomach can be divided into the following four stages of the disease: liver and stomach qi stagnation if the spleen and stomach qi deficiency is weak to push the liver; liver qi surplus will become fire, liver and stomach heat; liver fire for a long time to hurt the yin spread to the stomach, liver and stomach yin deficiency; CAG onset for a long time, liver blood deficiency, qi and blood deficiency, qi stagnation and blood stasis, then the stomach ligament stasis.Therefore, based on the inheritance and innovation of Ye Tianshi's theory of "liver and stomach treatment", Professor Wang Jiehong took the four syndromes of liver and stomach as the breakthrough point, adhered to the pathogenesis, and used the self-made prescription Zuojin Liujunzi Decoction to add and subtract according to the disease, focusing on From soothing liver qi, reducing stomach turbidity, clearing liver fire, and stomach qi, nourishing liver yin, nourishing stomach yin, nourishing liver blood, and dredging stomach and collaterals, the four methods of treating CAG finally achieve the purpose of treating liver and stomach, and harmonizing qi and blood, in order to effectively reverse The performance of gastric mucosal atrophy under the microscope can be prevented before the disease, and the risk of canceration can be reduced.
