The Small Intestine's main function is to receive partially decomposed food and drinks from the Stomach, digest and absorb them further. In doing so it separates the pure part from the impure part.
Disharmony in the Small Intestine may give rise to urinary or bowel disorders, abdominal pain, thirts, scanty dark urine, throat pain, tongue ulcers and heat in the chest areas.
