Practitioners will note rancid, burnt, fragrant, fishy, rotting and putrefying odours as indicating areas for treatment, for example in acupuncture. This will be combined with other aspects of diagnosis such as visual signs or how the patient sounds when talking as well of course as the ailments which they present with.
