Show Me Your Tongue
The tongue is a muscular organ in the mouth. It is covered with moist, pink tissue called mucosa. Tiny bumps called papillae give the tongue its rough texture. Thousands of taste buds cover the surfaces of the papillae. Taste buds are collections of nerve-like cells that connect to nerves running into the brain. The appearance of a white coating is caused by debris, bacteria and dead cells getting lodged between the enlarged and sometimes inflamed papillae.
'Tongue Diagnosis' is a method of medical diagnosis that diagnoses disease by observing the tongue. 'Tongue' is the most sensitive subject to reflect the current situation of the human body, and serves as a screen to neurological projection of the brain.
The tongue mainly reflects conditions of:
1. Cardiovascular conditions 2. Immunity and lymphatic conditions 3. Cerebral and neurological conditions 4. Digestive conditions 5. Musculoskeletal conditions
