Tongue Diagnosis

Chinese and Ayurvedic practitioners often first look at an individual's tongue to determine overall health.  Different areas of the tongue correspond to different areas of the body like in reflexology and feet.  As a dentist, I am looking at tongues all day and the texture and color can give me clues about digestive issues, hydration status and inflammation.  Often signs of disease present before symptoms, so if we can identify a weak area in the body, we can work together with a physician to restore the body to good health.  CLICK HERE to read more about this and see the map of the tongue.
