All treatment approaches have to ensure the wellbeing of Shen, otherwise all the effort will be fruitless. Zhang Zhong Jing also believed that treatments should be favorable to the Shen. In the abstinence of external diseases in 《Shang Han Lun 》, it suggests to stop consuming meat, five stinky vegetables, decaying and stinky items. The acupuncture points called Welcome Fragrance (LI20) which are located above the mouth signifies that all the food should be smelled by our nose before they could be entered into our mouth. Ancient Chinese showed their wisdom by creating Chinese words with intrinsic value. As a point in large intestine meridian, it implies that our body especially our stomach and intestine prefer fragrant food instead of stinky food.
