    Our clinical staff have made the following notes, regarding chu kou wei wan.

    For stomach fire and or food stagnation causing foul smelling breath.  Stomach fire is a condition where extreme heat (fire) is trapped in the stomach.  Part of the role of the stomach is to “ripen the food” so that it is easier for the spleen to then extract the energy from it.  Stomach fire can over-ripen the food, which results noxious gas production that ultimately rises up and causes bad breath.  Stomach fire also burns through the food too quick, so that there is not much left for the spleen to work with; this results in a near constant hunger.  The excess heat from the stomach fire can cause burning sensations in the chest, epigastrium, mouth and even the tongue itself.
