Below you will find various relationships to, and potential clinical treatment approaches for bad breath (halitosis).
It is critical to appreciate that in Chinese Medicine, treatment for "bad breath (halitosis)" is rarely focused on the symptoms exclusively. Alternatively, a practitioner is looking at the factors that led to the development of "bad breath (halitosis)" - i.e. the "cause(s)".
For non-practitioners, we recommend reading treating the "cause" and not the "symptoms" for more on the overall approach and the importance of the TCM diagnostic system in formulating treatment approaches.
