Chinese medicine describes the order in which energy flows through these systems and western medicine describes the direction and order of blood circulation through these different organ systems.
By understanding these organ relationships, we can use their connections to cleanse the body of unwanted toxins while at the same time provide nutrition and "fuel" for these organs to get stronger.
