Our tongues say a lot about us, including our health.  Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has developed a unique, effective diagnostic approach using inspection of the tongue.
For thousands of years, various areas of the tongue are believed to correspond to different organs and their meridian systems (left image). Changes in the tongue happen when changes occur first in the diet, emotions, lifestyle and state of health.
This week’s health tip is to encourage people to examine their tongue as a way to inspect their personal health.


One of the meanings of a thick, greasy tongue coating is that there is fumigation of improperly digested food, combined with internal pathogenic factors rising upward to reside on the tongue. Scraping or brushing the tongue temporarily removes this thick coat and the stale or bitter taste that may accompany it, but unless the root of this turbidity is dealt with, no amount of scraping will permanently resolve it. There are several ways to treat these imbalances in the body that manifest on the tongue – cupping (all types), acupuncture, herbal medicine, and changes in diet and lifestyle are the main methods used in Traditional Chinese Medicine. This is a very brief introduction on how to read your body’s health through inspecting your tongue.
Mouth health is also an important component of dentistry.  A healthier tongue and mouth also means healthier teeth. In combining the wisdom of a 4000 year-old field of medicine and modern day dental health practices, we can significantly raise awareness about how to improve overall mouth and tongue health.  This is where TCM and dentistry can effectively be used in collaboration together.

The tongue gives clear clues as to the health of different organ systems and the body-mind-spirit as a whole.  It is also the changes in the body and coating of the tongue that are important in TCM.
