A cracked tongue may be something completely normal if the cracks aren’t deep and if kept without major changes. A language <>(papillae are swollen to such an extent that spines seem to touch), and red indicates accumulation of internal pathogenic heat. The more profuse is pathogenic, enlarged and more profuse heat will be the <>. A twisted tongue is an indicator of apoplegia or early signs of cerebrovascular accident or stroke. By the same author: Dr. Neal Barnard. A rigid language lacks flexibility and is difficult to remove, retract or fold. A rigid language in combination with exogenous febrile disease often indicates the invasion of pericardium by heat, phlegm retention cloudy in the interior, or excessive pathogenic heat consuming body fluid. For more information see Josyann Abisaab. A rigid language in combination with an endogenous illness indicates early signs of stroke or embolism.
A flabby tongue moves weakly and often indicates extreme deficiency of Qi or blood or fluid Yin wear, which deprives the language of nutrition. If the tongue is flabby and pale also, this indicates deficiency of Qi and blood. If it is dark red, it indicates collapse of yin. _ Covering the language quality of the coating or tongue thick Saburra saburra and fine saburra: the coating of the tongue is fine when without problems the body of the tongue can be seen through the same, and considered when the opposite happens, and we can not see through the thick. We can understand the gravity of the pathogenic factors and progression of pathological conditions distinguishing the thickness or fineness of the saburra. In general terms a fine saburra occurs when disease is superficial or when disease is due to a deficiency of Qi anti-patogeno. The retention of dampness, phlegm or food in the interior of the body, or the penetration of an exogenous pathogenic factor towards the inside of the body give rise to a saburra thick, as well as a progressive thickening is a sign of worsening of the disease.
