Tongue, a mini picture of Health

Tongue, a mini picture of Health

It is an ancient tradition to check the tongue of a patient during clinical examination by the vaidhya/doctor. They check the bacterial build-up, food debris, fungi, and dead cells from the surface of the tongue. Decaying bacteria produce volatile sulphur compounds on the rear of the tongue account for 80 to 95 percent of all cases of halitosis (bad breath). It keeps the husband away from the wife! Tables in offices are divider lines to avoid bad breath!

As tongue is a front hole of the digestive system, gives mirror picture of the condition of throat, broncho, food pipe, stomach, intestines, liver, lungs and heart, etc.

Open your mouth and check the colour of the surface of the tongue. If it is white, indicates cold inside. It it is yellow, indicates heat and some times bectarial infection inside.

It there are scars to the right side of the tongue, your liver is in heat. If the scars are in the left, indicates spline problem.

It there is deep line in the centre of the tongue, indicates lungs problem. If the line reaches up to the tip of the tongue, it indicates heart problem and probability of bye pass surgery in future.

The upper wall of the mouth, tonsil and area around tonsil are seen to judge, what is happening inside the "drum".

Check your tongue every day twice and be healthy curing the disease which may be at preliminary stage.

"ઓકારે દાતણ કરે, નરણા હરડે ખાય;
ડાબા પડખે જે સુએ, તે ઘર વૈધ ન જાય."

Don't forget making O O O O sound to cough out when brush in the morning. Brushing is not only for cleaning teeth but one has to clean the entire mouth. Use tongue scraper and drink water at regular intervals to avoid bad breath.

Shubham Bhavatu Kalyanam.
