The Tongue In Chinese Medicine

This video shows the significance of the tongue in Chinese medicine.

As a matter of fact, in traditional Chinese medicine, the tongue is divided into sections. Each section relates to the meridians and organ systems throughout the body. It is believed that the tongue can paint a picture of your overall health. Additionally, TCM practitioners would monitor the progress of treatment. They take the cue from a patient’s tongue colour, texture, shape, and visible spots.

For example, white patches in the tongue mean fungal infection. This can be a result of taking an oral medication. Some of which are known to throw off the balance of the bacteria in your mouth. Another thing you should watch out for is the “hair”. While hair can be a natural occurrence, food and bacteria can get caught in it. Normally, it can be scraped off through brushing or scraping. However, watch out for white patches that won’t be scraped off. It may be a sign of oral hairy leukoplakia. This is usually a symptom of Epstein-Barr or HIV.

Generally, any significant changes in your tongue should be monitored. There can be a wide range of possible changes to your tongue all with different outcomes.
