Tongue Diagnosis

At The Rhythms of Life, we practice a variety of traditional Chinese Natural Holistic Cures Supplements. One of which is Tongue Diagnosis, an age-old method of telling the health of the body’s seven organ systems simply be examining the tongue of a patient.

Belief behind tongue diagnosis is that the appearance of the tongue related to the current health status of the body as a whole. An experienced person with extensive knowledge about tongue diagnosis will be able to examine your tongue to determine your overall health. They will provide you with specific details about each of your body’s seven organ systems in the form of a complete report once the examination is over.

How It Works

We make the process very simple. All you have to do is take a picture of your tongue. As much of your tongue as possible needs to be visible, so to take the photo, stick it out of your mouth in a well-lit room and take a picture with your smartphone or camera. You can also have someone else take the photo, or use a mirror if you’re having trouble.

Once you have the picture taken, simply come back to our site and follow the upload process. Our Chinese Natural Holistic Cures Supplements Doctors will review the photo and create a complete report. We will need your name, email, and a phone number in order to proceed with the scheduling process. It costs $129.99.

Chinese Body Types

Traditional Chinese Natural Holistic Cures Supplements uses a system that classifies health conditions by five body types, or Zheng (meaning “full equilibrium). These include:

  • Balanced Zheng
  • Damp Heat
  • Damp Phlegm

Less than 5% of the population falls into the “Balanced Zheng” category. Within these five categories, Traditional Chinese Natural Holistic Cures Supplements Doctors will be able to identify your Qi status. No one deficiency status is better or worse than another. Balanced Zheng is the most ideal state. The other types describe various imbalances that we have to recognize in order to manage our wellbeing in the best way possible.

Reading The Tongue

Your report will include the traditional Chinese Natural Holistic Cures Supplements Map of the Tongue so you can see which areas of the tongue relate to which parts of your body.

The edges of your tongue represent the liver and gall bladder. The front tip of your tongue represents the heart, with the small section going horizontally across just behind the tip representing the lungs. The middle portion of your tongue represents your stomach and spleen, with the small horizontal section behind that representing the large and small intestines. Finally, the back of your tongue represents the kidneys and urinary bladder.

What To Expect

This centuries old technique will produce a report about the health of your liver, gall bladder, kidneys, urinary bladder, large intestines, small intestines, stomach, spleen, lungs, and heart. These parts are divided into seven groups: liver + gall bladder, kidneys + urinary bladder, large + small intestines, stomach + spleen, and your lungs + heart.

This technique is over 4000-years-old and is based on the philosophy that your whole body’s health can be determined through your tongue. Your tongue is like a health lab, and can show Chinese Doctors the status of your organs without the need to run any tests. Traditional Chinese Natural Holistic Cures Supplements is based upon the deep knowledge of Meridians, which regulate the entire body’s flow of energy, typically referred to as “Qi”.

You will receive a complete report that tells you about your overall health and gives suggestions about lifestyle and food choices that you should follow or avoid.

If you choose, your tongue diagnosis can also help our Chinese Natural Holistic Cures Supplements Doctors prescribe herbal medications that you need to improve your health. These medications can be ordered directly from our website and delivered to your door.

The Results

Here’s an example of a report from a tongue diagnosis. You will receive the following kind of recommendations and observations:

  • Your tongue’s color and shape will be discussed. You might be told the color is light red, with a fair shape and cracks.
  • You will also be informed of your tongue’s coating, with the color possibly being a little white and the texture a little dry.
  • You will then be told your syndrome type tendency (see above under Chinese Body Types). For example, you might have a Yang deficiency.
  • Following, you will be given the evaluation, such as Kidney Yang deficiency.
  • Finally, you will be given your risk of disease analysis. This might include: “Hypothyroidism, back or joint pain, digestive issues and weight issues, emotional problems, fatigue, etc.”

The second portion of your report will include the analysis of your organs, which may read something like this:

  • Heart: fair texture, fair coating, ok evaluation
  • Lungs: cracked texture, uneven coating, border line evaluation
  • Stomach and spleen: cracked texture, uneven coating, needs attention
  • Liver and gall bladder: bumpy and cracked texture, uneven coating, needs attention
  • Large and small intestines: cracked texture, uneven coating, ok evaluation
  • Kidney and urinary bladder: fair texture, a little white coating, needs attention

Following this information, you will be given more details about your deficiency, such as Kidney Yang, and told what’s to be expected along with this deficiency. You’ll also be given your deficiency’s signs and symptoms, and a list of foods that can improve your deficiency.

For example, for a Kidney Yang deficiency, you will be advices to eat more raspberries, chestnuts, walnuts, pistachios, lobster, shrimp, mussels, prawn, lamb, sheep/beef kidney, basil, clove, rosemary, chive leaf, fennel seed, and jasmine tea.

Your report’s list will be extensive and will also give examples of simple Western dishes that incorporate the recommended foods.

Additionally, you will receive a list of things you should avoid so as not to worsen your condition, along with recommendations for acupuncture points, herbs, and lifestyle.
