Mirror gives answers about health

According to Chinese medicine, our face is a window to our health. Our forehead, nose, chin, right cheek, left cheek, each of these five face zones gives us clues to what is going on inside our body--if we look at our face with full attention.!
Our face is one of way our body uses to send us messages about that how it feels and what could we do for it. Over five thousand year practice, Chinese medicine has mastered the art and science of reading the body's language. There are 5 Chinese Elements (fire, earth, water, metal, and wood). Each part of our face reflects a different element, which corresponds to a particular organ grouping. So, symptoms can be seen on our face which helps to heal the cause which is in some of corresponding internal systems, such as our heart, stomach, hormones and even our mind and spirit.
By reading our body over our face we can take care of small problems preventing them to develop into something which is more difficult to treat.

The Forehead
Fire Element - Heart/Small Intestine

According to Chinese medicine, the forehead corresponds to the fire element. This is associated with the heart and small intestine organ network, as well as the mind and spirit.
Some redness or small blood vessels that appear as discoloration could indicate a heart problem or a recent emotionally-charged experience, such as a breakup or loss. It is common for people whose emotions are regularly in turmoil to have a constant furrow between their eyebrows.
If discoloration on the forehead is accompanied by heart palpitations, dizziness, shortness of breath, and tingling or pain in your left arm, it is recommended to schedule an appointment with a cardiologist or visit an emergency room, if necessary.

The Nose
Earth Element - Spleen/Pancreas/Stomach

Our nose corresponds to the earth element, indicating a connection to the stomach, spleen and pancreas network.
Symptoms of internal discord typically show up as If we notice a pimple on the tip or side of our nose this is a symptom that calls to think back to our meals from the previous day (if we eat a lot of spicy, deep-fried, fatty, or rich foods, or chocolate) If "yes," it is easy as it should not be the problem to change our choice of cuisine. As a result, suffer from indigestion, constipation, or diarrhea shows calling us to change something.
Broken capillaries or redness across the bridge of the nose could reveal alcohol abuse. Sometimes it simply shows excessive worry and stress. For such problems meditation and other stress-releasing techniques are very helpful.

Our Chin
Water Element - Kidney/Bladder

The chin area is related to the water element, which is internally associated to your kidney and bladder organ network, including the hormonal system and glands.
It shows with blemishes, discoloration and dark patches of skin around the chin and mouth. Acne breakouts around the chin may signify a hormonal imbalance. The problem is most often due to the body producing excess estrogen or testosterone and tends to be coupled with irregular menstruation in women and prostate symptoms in men.
It is important to look at the philtrum, the indentation just above your lips. This small area relates to the uterus and ovaries in women and the prostate and genitals in men. Horizontal lines, blemishes or discoloration across the philtrum may indicate infertility issues.
According to Chinese medicine, people who have a small chin are genetically predisposition to weakness in their kidney and bladder network. It doesn't mean that small-chinned people will develop kidney disease, but it is recommended to be alert that a tendency may exist, so that they can choose lifestyle as prevention of the development of a condition.

Right Cheek
Metal Element - Lung/Large Intestine

Your right cheek corresponds to the metal element, meaning this area of our face is connected to the lung and large intestine network.
If there are blemishes and skin problems on your right cheek, it may mean problems in the lung and large intestine network. A mild acne eczema or slight redness may mean a cold is coming on. Lung illness or upper respiratory ailments also trigger visual symptoms on the right cheek.
People who are prone to respiratory allergies or asthma have a tendency to have a reddish, scaly eczema. In such cases herbs treatments are very helpful.

Left Cheek
Wood Element - Liver/Gallbladder

The left cheek corresponds to our wood element, or the liver-gallbladder network.
Broken capillaries and redness, especially up next to the bridge of your nose, indicate heat, inflammation or congestion of toxins in the liver. Bulging veins, redness, and rash sometimes signal high blood pressure or anger.
A yellowish hue under the left eye may indicate gallstones or high triglycerides or cholesterol, which are processed by the liver-gall bladder network.
Problems in this part of the face also reveals emotional issues connected with anger and depression, since the liver and gallbladder network includes the nervous system.
