Odor from food stagnancy in stomach
“I tend to burp after each meal, it seems to happen more frequently these days, and the burps have an odor. Do I have some kind of stomach disease?”
CheckCheckCin: From Chinese Traditional Medicine’s understanding, gas from the stomach that moves upwards in the body is belching (‘ai qi’). Stomach gas normally travels downwards, if it moves at the opposite direction, this means you are experiencing a disorder that prohibits the gas from propelling downwards. Gas that has a rancid odor is most probably caused by food stagnation.
If we consume food excessively or have irregular meals, the spleen and stomach are unable to process them on time, food particles can stagnate inside in the stomach and cause people to belch, experience tightness and discomfort in the chest, appetite loss, constipation, and produce foul-smelling stools.
When this happens, we need to clear the stagnation. Use rice sprout, malt, and dried citrus peel to make tea; drinking it can help relieve indigestion and bloating. You can also massage the ‘zhong wan’ acupoint, as it can soothe the stomach and strengthen the spleen, relieve bloating and pain in the stomach.
