The Traditional Iranian Medicine has robust logical foundations, in which it is tried to understand and explain many symptoms and signs with the aid of experience and comparison and with regard to the normal function of the body. The gastrointestinal (GI) system, particularly stomach, is of great importance in the TIM, and prevention and treatment of gastric diseases have been noted in treatment of many disorders of other body organs. In evaluation of the patient for diseases of the GI system, a physician should have a good understanding of anatomy and the relationship among the different organs. Furthermore, based on the TIM, besides having a good knowledge of anatomy, a physician should be expert in the theoretical basis of medicine, especially the seven natural components, to have an appropriate understanding of the diseases and their symptoms. In this way, making use of this knowledge, the physician could provide feasible explanations for the relationships among the disease symptoms. In the TIM, the natural components include elements, temperaments, humors, organs, spirits, faculties, and actions.Furthermore, the common items between TIM and Chinese traditional medicine were addressed.
