Food stagnation, indigestion, epigastric bloating and fullness, belching and being sick of food, eructation with fetid odor.
Relieve Stomach Stagnation comes from the “Danxi’s Mastery of Medicine” edited by Zhu Danxi, from the Yuan Dynasty published in 1347 AD. It is used for indications of Stagnation of the Stomach and indigestion. The Stagnation is caused by overeating, or originally, the Spleen and Stomach were weak, overeating leads to further damage to the Spleen and Stomach (lower gastric motility, gastrointestinal “overload“). The undigested turbid food stagnated in the Stomach which causes fullness and distension of stomach and abdomen, poor appetite, constipation or loose stools, foul smelling stool, thick tongue coating, and slippery pulse. The failure of Stomach descending causes nausea and vomiting and hiccups (involuntary intermittent contraction of the diaphragm, causing air to be suddenly drawn into the respiratory tract and digestive tract), belching and acid reflux, as well as bad breath. This formula promotes digestion, removes Blockage, and harmonises the Stomach. Suitable for adults and children.
