The body tissues and organs are constantly regenerating themselves. The tongue completely restores its top epithelial layer every 2-3 days, allowing immediate discovery of possible glitches within. When we think of internal organs of the body, the tongue is not one we typically think of. It has many body tissue meridian lines running through it, so it’s changing appearance can be a valuable guide concerning organ health.
“Tongue analysis is one of Chinese and Indian Ayurvedic techniques in relation to long-term disease prevention and good health. It has been used by the Chinese for thousands of years. The lack of necessary nutrients such as the vitamin B group, vitamin C, iron, and zinc all cause oxidation of cells and thus a change in the cells themselves. Taste cells also become atrophied as malnourishment progresses. Oftentimes, these changes are so immediate that they can be detected and followed before any other changes in the body occur.” Dr. Tsu-Tsair Chi, NMD, PhD
“The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.”
