Tongue diagnosis plays a central role in traditional Chinese medicine. It provides indications of the status of a disease, the course of a disease, the functional cycles that are involved and pathogenic factors.
The tongue has a connection to the organs, the meridians and the vessels and is a projection of the body itself.

Colour and Quality of the Tongue Coating
