There are 3 stages in Ayurvedic diagnostics (nidana prakriya). Darshan (inspection), Sparshan (contact) and Prashpa (survey).
Sparshan includes such modern medicine manipulations as palpation and percussion of organs and Nadi Pariksha (pulse diagnosis) and determine skin elasticity, etc. And darshanas include examinations of the eye, ear, tongue, fingers, skin, etc.
Here we will get acquainted with some of the points of diagnosis by TONGUE (JIYUVA NIDAN PRACRIA).
How to learn the tongue about the malfunctions of the spine, stomach, liver and prevent them?
In medicine, there are very few rules, without exception, but there is one such rule among them: the symptoms of diseases appear in the tongue about a day or two before the affected organs begin to hurt.
Diagnosis of the tongue should be carried out mainly (but not always) in the morning, on an empty stomach, in natural daylight and after preliminary rinsing of the oral cavity.
When examining the tongue, attention is paid to the color, nature and location of the plaque, to the shape and features of the surface and to various formations in the tongue.
First of all, we’ll make a correspondence map. So, the tip of the tongue “watches” the heart and lungs, its middle part – the stomach and pancreas (these zones are located on the middle fold of the tongue), as well as the liver and spleen. By the root of the tongue, one can judge the state of the intestine, and by the lateral sections – the kidneys. The median fold of the tongue reflects the condition of the spine.
The location of the zones in the tongue schematically repeats the placement of the corresponding organs of the body, from the tip – the upper part of the body and to the root – the lower part of the body.
A healthy person is a pale pink tongue, without plaque, with an even fold, well-defined papillae.
In summer, the papillae of the tongue have a reddish tint and are slightly enlarged, and in the fall and spring they are slightly yellowish or light. Eating foods, such as blueberries and beets, and overly hot foods, and medications taken, and the design of dentures, and the composition of the composite from which the seal is made, can affect the condition of the tongue. This should be remembered when evaluating your health by TONGUE, so as not to take the trace of the eaten carrots for a serious ailment.
FOLDING OF THE FOLDING AT THE TIP OF THE TONGUE signals cervical osteochondrosis. Most likely, this is the result of a sedentary lifestyle, long work with a computer or at a desk.
BENDING FOLDING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE TONGUE – lumbar osteochondrosis, it usually affects professional drivers and people who spend a lot of time behind the wheel. To avoid osteochondrosis, you need to do warm-up regularly: a few squats, turning your head – simple but very useful exercises.
REDISHING THE END OF THE TONGUE – a sign of weak cardiac activity, beginning coronary artery disease. Diseases of the pulmonary system can be judged by changes at the edges of the tongue, closer to the tip. Smokers are most often affected by heart and lung diseases, so such changes in the tongue are a serious reason to quit smoking.
YELLOW IN TONGUE AND SKY speaks of liver diseases, chronic cholecystitis.
ON THE FLIGHT AT THE FOUNDATION OF THE TONGUE judge violations in the gastrointestinal tract and kidneys.
DIGITAL PRINTING IN THE TONGUE – a sign of dysbiosis, slagging of the body. In this case, it is worth changing the diet, eat less fatty and fried. To tidy up the body, you can take different infusions of herbs. For example, brew 1 tablespoon of St. John’s wort with 1 cup boiling water, leave it warm for 30 minutes. Take 1/3 cup 3 times a day before meals for 2-3 weeks.
TREATMENT OF THE TONGUE – a manifestation of neurasthenic syndrome. Here the advice is this: try to improve the psychological situation at home, at work, change the lifestyle.
CRACK ON TONGUE can talk about various diseases of the blood, endocrine system, kidney pathology. Here it is necessary to be checked most seriously. A sign of failure in the body is a decrease in taste. The tongue has zones responsible for the reaction to sweet, sour, salty, bitter. If a person ceases to feel any of these tastes, then we can talk about diseases of the nervous, endocrine systems.
