Holistic Tongue Analysis .
The tongue's top epithelial layer regenerates approximately every 3-4 days. The tongue also shows detectable characteristics that correspond to organ functions. It is the tongue's quick growth cycle that makes it ideal for determining immediate changes in the body. Both fingernail and tongue analysis have been used in Chinese and Ayurveda practices for thousands of years.
A normal tongue is pink in color, medium thickness, no cracks, ulcers, no teeth marks and with a light white moist coat (with root) on it. It has a look of aliveness and is supple (not stiff). There is no movement (quivering, trembling, side-to-side motion, curling or shifting to one side.) .
In general the tongue is divided into three regions called burners.
- The first third of the tongue (tip of the tongue) indicates what is happening in the heart and lungs. The sides of the tip represent the chest/breasts.
- The middle third of the tongue is related to the stomach and spleen.
- The back third of the tongue is related to the bladder, kidneys, small and large intestines.
- The liver and gall bladder areas are on the sides of the tongue.

- Progression of Color: When a body shows dis-ease the tongue color (underneath the coating) turns from pink to pale, to red and then to purple.
- Purple tongues mean blood stasis.
- Red dots on the tongue are called points and they have a meaning wherever they are. In Asian and African people these red dots can look brown.
Tongue Diagnosis: Coating of the Tongue: (Coating is related to Stomach function.)
- A white coat corresponds to cold in the area of the body correlating to the tongue.
- A yellow coat is related to heat.
- A coating can be with “root” which means the coating cannot be scraped off and it looks like grass growing from the soil.
- A coating without root looks like it has been sprinkled on and can be scraped off.
- The thicker the coat, the more progressed the disease.
- Lack of a coat means that the digestion is not working correctly.
- The coating is slightly thicker on the back of the tongue.
