Spleen yang is the active part of your Spleen, keeping things in place, digesting and absorbing what you eat, putting colour in your cheeks and bounce in your step.
So with Spleen Yang deficiency you get a range of symptoms showing that this process isn't working properly.
That means that your Spleen, which is rather like a housekeeper, allows rubbish to build up where it shouldn't, can't keep things tidy in your body, and begins to go to seed. That means that your flesh loses tone and you feel weak and, often, overwhelmed.
The main causes are diet, emotion, wet weather and chronic disease.
Usually, the next symptoms come from the following, always assuming that the cause remains and nothing is done about it.
Read again the causes of the problem, above then:
Dress for Warmth and to avoid Damp and cold
Try to do less, especially if you have taken on more than you can reasonably handle and
Acupuncture can often ward off the serious developments but you've got to take yourself in hand. Even acupuncture isn't perfect!
Kidney Yang provides the support structure for Spleen Yang. If you have Spleen Yang deficiency for too long, you'll probably get Kidney Yang deficiency as well.
And if you already have Kidney Yang deficiency, you'll start getting symptoms of this Spleen Yang deficiency syndrome.

All the books in the 'Chinese Medicine in English' series should be fully accessible on Kindles and Kindle apps. (Or you can buy the softback print editions, of course.)
('Western Astrology and Chinese Medicine' published 1986, was never available in a Kindle version.)
If, having read one of my books you can write a review - preferably positive - that would help others decide whether to read it.
You can put your review on Amazon or, on this site, here.
And if you think it was terrible?
Well, let me know so I can improve it for the next person. (Ideally let me know before cursing it in public!)
Here are some of the books I (Jonathan) have written.
Subscribers to Kindle Unlimited can borrow the first four for 'free'.
Published 1986 and, amazingly, still selling. Western Astrology and Chinese Medicine was apparently used back then by at least one acupuncture college to help students understand Chinese medicine! See Reviews.
Six Reviews so far for Yuck Phlegm. (Despite the lurid cover, it explains the five main types of phlegm and what works best for each type. I hope it's easy to read and will be much more useful than all the websites on the subject.)
3000 years of Chinese being stressed, and at last, here's a book showing how all that experience can help you!
By the author of this website, it explains in simple English how to use stress to improve and enhance your life.
NB You can also order 'Qi Stagnation - Signs of Stress' from your bookseller.
