Olfaction and taste

Olfaction and taste
Olfaction, taste and trigeminal receptors together give to flavor. The human tongue can distinguish only among five distinct qualities of taste, while the nose can distinguish among hundreds of substances, even in minute quantities. It is during exhalation that the olfaction contribution to flavor occurs in contrast to that of proper smell that occurs during the inhalation phase.
The following are disorders of olfaction:
•Anosmia – inability to smell
•Cacosmia – things smell like feces
•Dysosmia – things smell different from they should
•Hyperosmia – an abnormally acute sense of smell
•Hyposmia – decreased ability to smell
•Olfactory Reference Syndrome – psychological disorder that causes the patient to imagine he or she has strong body odor
•Parosmia – things smell worse than they should
•Phantosmia – “hallucinated smell,” often unpleasant
TASTE belongs to humidity class so Spleen is involved; sometimes food has no taste, if DESIRE means deficient of energy, if NO DESIRE means excess of energy. And dominant energy meridian is Lungs.
In any case one may get positive effective results through the energy concept of Onnuri SuJok Acupuncture that too in the miniature form of hands or feet.
