Why do we look at the tongue?
Looking at the tongue is a good way to check on how the treatment is going. The way the tongue looks is a reflection of what is happening inside your body.
The tongue itself which is a huge muscle shows us how the blood circulation is going – is the tongue red, purple or pale? It is a reflection of the blood.
The tongue/mouth is the first part of the digestion system, the coating of the tongue reflects what is happening deeper in the gut. Is the coating clear and moist, or is it thick and greasy, or is it dry and cracked?
The tongue will change as your health changes. And you might even see a change happening on the treatment table.
