Bad smelling breath or foul-smelling mouth or nose (halitosis) is a common problem worldwide. It increases with age and can be extremely stressful for those affected. Halitosis is usually caused by problems in the oral cavity and throat. If, however, good dental hygiene can rule them out, then bad breath can be the first sign of an undetected inflammation of the stomach lining, a gastritis. On top of that, we live in a stressful time and the demands of people can be very challenging most of the time. As is well known, stress hits the stomach, which leads to diseases, and as a consequence halitosis can develop from within.
Indigestion is associated with irregular, excessive or cold, rich or fatty food intake, which damages Spleen and Stomach functions leading to food stagnation, colic, bloating, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, bad breath (halitosis).
