Tongue diagnosis is an important part of the Chinese medical assessment. During an examination, the overall tongue coating, shape, and color is taken into account. The tongue reflects the health of the internal organs and blood circulation. Changes in the tongue color usually reflect chronic illness. As your health changes, the condition of your tongue will change as well. It is therefore very useful and important during inspection for confirming TCM diagnosis. It can present strong visual indicators of a person's overall harmony or disharmony. In this page, we would like to share with you knowledge about tongue diagnosis. It will be a very interesting topic for you to understand how the tongue is a mirror of the body. If you need a TCM help, please fill in the HEALTH FORM and send your tongue picture.

Principles of Tongue Diagnosis
Observing and interpreting the signs offered by the tongue is one of the more important diagnostic tools in Chinese medicine. The tongue is a hologram of the body in addition to being a highly visible and accessible part of the digestive system. As such, the tongue can reveal the depth and nature of any imbalances and can also be used to gauge the process of recovery.
