12 Spleen Case Study Eliza comes to see you as she wants to lose weight. She has no appetite, eats very little, but continues to gain weight. She is tired all the time & describes a feeling of heaviness in her body. Eliza finds it hard to wake up in the morning and her head feels foggy. You notice her limbs are swollen and she has non-pitting edema. Eliza has a pale ulcer on her inner leg. She says it has been there for months and though it isn t painful, it worries her as it doesn t seem to be healing. What pulse presentation would you expect? What would Eliza s tongue look like? What do you think Eliza might say about her bowel movements? Are there any red flags or cautions you need to be aware of? Endeavour College of Natural Health 12
