Seven tricks and five internal organs to see facial health
The “Inner Canon” proposes that the heart opens the tongue, the spleen opens the mouth, the lung opens the nose, the liver opens the eye, and the kidney opens the ear.
In other words, by observing the abnormalities of the five senses, you can understand the possible complications of the heart, liver, spleen, lungs, and kidneys.
Traditional Chinese Medicine: Seeing Qiqiao knows the health of the five internal organs. The so-called “Qiaoqiao” mainly refers to the seven holes in the face, namely the eyes, ears, nose, mouth and tongue.
The essence of the five internal organs reaches Qiqiao, so the disease of the five internal organs can often be reflected in the changes of Qiqiao.
Opening the heart to the tongue “The heart breathes through the tongue, and when the heart is peaceful, the tongue can know the five flavors.”
In fact, full-heartedness can almost guarantee that the tongue can recognize the five flavors, the tongue can rotate flexibly, and the fluency and smoothness of the tongue also depends on the mental health.
Generally speaking, a rosy tongue means that the heart has too much blood.
The heart is dominated by blood, and the blood vessels above the tongue are the most abundant and superficial, so the tongue can also sensitively reflect the functional state of the heart.
If the heart is not enough, the tongue will be fat or tender or dark; if the heart is not enough, the tongue will be red;Dark or bruised; abnormal mental function and speech impairment, speech incomprehensible.
The kidneys open to the ears. “The kidney qi flows through the ears, and the kidneys can smell the five sounds.”
“In this way, the person with kidney qi will hear well.
In terms of pathology, if the kidney essence is deficient, the brain is insufficient, prone to dizziness, tinnitus, hearing loss and other symptoms. Patients with kidney yin deficiency often have tinnitus like cicada.
In addition, the aging manifestations of hearing loss, deafness and deafness in the elderly are also closely related to the elderly’s weak kidney qi.
Therefore, people with poor hearing can consider whether to replenish kidney qi.
Opening the liver depends on the evacuation and nutrition of liver qi.
According to Chinese medicine, the liver hides blood, and blood is the most direct material basis for eye movements. Therefore, the rise and fall of liver blood will directly affect visual function.
If the liver blood is insufficient and the eyes are lost, then the eyes are dizzy, the vision is unclear, and problems such as night blindness occur; if the liver is hot, the eyes can be red and swollen and painful; the liver yin deficiency can cause dry eyes or dry eyesFlexible, strabismus, etc .; liver qi stagnation for too long can cause dizziness in the mouth.
The lungs are opened to the nose. “Lung Qi flows through the nose and the lungs, and the nose can know the smell and smell.”
The lungs mainly breathe, and the nose is the gateway for breathing in and out. Therefore, if the nose is to perform normal ventilation and olfactory functions, it must rely on the lungs to reconcile and breathe smoothly.
In fact, the function of “lung main qi” not only affects breathing, but also provides nutrition for the nose to ensure the smoothness of the nose and prevent rhinopathy.
Clinically, the manifestations of certain lung diseases are often reflected on the nose.
If the exogenous wind and cold affects the lungs, it will cause nasal congestion and runny nose, affecting the sense of smell; if the lungs are hot, the nostrils will be dry.
Conversely, if the above abnormal changes occur in the nose, it can cause lung discomfort.
The spleen is open to the mouth.
The lip is a component of the mouth and is considered to be the external manifestation of the spleen. When the temper is healthy and the blood is surplus, the lips are nourished, and the lips are red and rosy.Nourish, then the lip color is pale, or pale.
However, it must be reminded that although the five internal organs are closely related to the seven qi, clinical diagnosis needs to be combined with other methods to make a comprehensive judgment.
