WHY DO CHINESE MEDICINE PRACTITIONERS LOOK AT YOUR TONGUE?
Updated: Dec 12, 2020
Well, your TONGUE is actually the only human "organ" (YES, your tongue is actually a human ORGAN!) that we have daily access to aside from your skin (yep, your skin is an organ too) - and is a key diagnosis tool in Chinese Medicine.
YOUR TONGUE IS UNIQUE BECAUSE IT reflects both the health and well-being of your body's systemic functions - such as digestion, elimination, fluid metabolism, your body's temperature regulation (i.e. too hot, too cold, etc.) - AS WELL AS being an excellent reflection of emotional health and balance/imbalance.
We inspect all the finite nuances of color, shape, cracks and coating on your tongue - detailing each in our notes, and using this information (coupled with Pulse-taking, palpation and intake questioning) to attain a diagnosis.
From day one in Chinese Medicine School, every student starts a dedicated study of the human tongue - with the goal of studying a different person's tongue daily. I know! That's a lot of tongue! However, tongue diagnosis is truly just, good old fashioned tool of medicine. Once upon a time, Western Medical Doctors used tongue diagnosis with every exam - and they did so for a reason. THE TONGUE TELLS ALL!
