Oral cancer clinical features

Tongue diagnosis is a very traditional and effective method which has been used to diagnose diseases for over two thousand years.
During TCM diagnosis we focus on the body of the tongue, the coating and any particular tastes the patient might experience. The colour of the tongue is linked to the stomach and spleen, a healthy digestion will show a nice fresh redness of the tongue. Different regions of the tongue are related to different parts of the body, internal organs and channels. Because of the relationship between the tongue and the body, your Chinese medicine practitioner can get valuable information about changes in the body and internal organs by observing your tongue.
Please see below for specific examples of some relationships between the tongue coating and health conditions. Sometimes, people may experience an abnormal taste when there is a disorder of the internal organs. TCM practitioners check the tongue, not only to find out which internal organs may be abnormal, but also to see the history and constitution of the body in relation to issues that may be arising.
In my clinic I have seen many abnormal tongues, however I will share with you some common tongues I see to give you an idea about how TCM tongue diagnosis works. This indicates that the liver and heart have a functioning disorder and there maybe a lack of circulation with blood clots (you may have an old injury). It is best for our practitioners to see your original tongue state (including tongue body and coating). It is best to avoid eating foods that may change the colour of your tongue, three hours before your consult. In the morning, when brushing your teeth it is best not to clean the coating off the tongue prior to seeing us. If you didn’t avoid the last three points, it is best to let our practitioner know during your consult. Tongue diagnosis in Chinese medicine is an example of how the human body is interconnected, even a small part of the body can give important clues that reflect the whole condition of the body. So, if you have any chronic health issues that cannot be solved, please visit your experienced Chinese medicine practitioner who will use tongue diagnosis to help solve your internal health issue.
