Why learn this??…
FACE – Face reading (mien shiang or mien xiang, pronounced “myen-shung”) originated in China nearly 3,000 years ago. Originally, this medical art was practiced by Taoist monk healers.
Experts say that in China, good doctors can identify 70% of a person’s health problems by examining the patient’s face. The most wonderful aspect of this diagnostic philosophy is that it can be used according the Traditional Chinese Medicine, to prevent illness. Facial coloring can also reveal what’s happening in the body, especially mineral deficiencies.
The location of various marks on your face is also important. Location can help predict the age at which certain problems will appear. Each face represents one of the 5 basic elemental types recognized by traditional Chinese medicine: wood, fire, air, water, and metal.
Each elemental type has specific physical attributes, personality traits, and health strengths and weaknesses.
The tongue is a detailed health map! The same way as the face, the tongue changes colors/shades, shape, and surface texture providing a current health state update.all the organs and the entire body can be located on specific regions of the tongue. As a mirror of the body’s digestive system, the tongue can reflect what minerals and vitamins may be deficient and can reveal the health of other various organs in the body.
NAILS act as a map of your well being-As early as 400 B.C.E., Hippocrates taught that the nails reflect the condition of the inner body. Abnormalities of the nails can often provide early clues to common medical problems or severe systemic diseases.It takes about six months for a new nail to grow from cuticle to tip. As a result they act as a map revealing your physical health and general well-being.
Depending on their shape, texture and color, your nails can provide important clues to underlying disorders, food intolerances or nutritional imbalances.
