Ancient physicians used nuanced observational diagnoses such as the ” facial map” to immediately reduce the symptoms of specific ailments within the body, which helped prevent or solve future diseases.

Modern machines such as MRI and X-ray are very sophisticated today and really don’t leave much to our imagination. However, they haven’t been state of the art for long. Human disorders and diseases, on the other hand, beat them by millennia.

For this, ancient doctors used nuanced observational diagnoses to immediately reduce the symptoms of specific ailments inside the body, which helped prevent or solve future diseases.

These techniques can still be used today as, for example, to “read” what the skin on your face says and help determine the causes of breakouts or blemishes.

Thus, ” the facial map” is an ancient practice that comes from Ayurvedic wisdom , associates a specific point of the face with a certain organ or part of the body, which will determine what is going to be treated internally to produce results on the surface.

Face map: 10 areas of your face that say something about your health

1. Front

It can mean: possible gallbladder and liver problems.

According to Ayurveda, the forehead is related to the digestive system and the nervous system, which possibly means that stress and internal stagnation are causing breakouts here.

It is recommended to reduce the intake of industrialized foods and saturated fats. Reduce or eliminate processed foods, while adding more live foods to your diet. Eat vegetable salads daily, as well as green juices on an empty stomach.

There are dozens of recipes according to your needs. Search the web, or at its best, seek advice from your nutritionist while incorporating meditation and yoga to keep stress low.

2. Between the eyebrows, on the right side

It could mean: repression of emotions in the liver.

A deep anxiety causes your face to acquire wrinkles, but understanding what the pattern or root of this issue is, can help you understand where you are carrying that tension or stress, and which organs, therefore, could be at risk. According to this Aryuvedic practice, if you have a vertical line between the eyebrows oriented more to the right side, it could be indicating repression of emotions – especially anger – in the liver.

3. Between the eyebrows, on the left side

Could mean: suppression of emotions in the spleen

Otherwise, a line between the eyebrows, oriented towards the left side could be speaking of emotions locked in the spleen.

4. Eyes

It could mean: bowel, thyroid and / or joint complications.

The eyes can reveal very specific situations too: a small iris indicates bone problems such as joint pain and the enlarged white area of ​​the iris can mean that the joints are in a degenerative state.

On the other hand, an iris with an irregular appearance may be talking about a poor absorption of nutrients in the intestine . If you see a light ring around the iris, you should reduce the consumption of salt and sugar. This indicates that you are overindulging on these two foods. A weak liver shows slightly yellowish eyes.

5. Below the eyes

It could mean: kidney failure.

Inflammation of the lower eyelids indicates impaired kidney function. Increasing the consumption of water will help the kidney, so do the spices that you add to your food as they ignite the digestive fire of the body. Make sure you chew your food well as well, it is recommended to chew each bite about 30 times before swallowing).

6. Cheeks

Could mean: low nutrient absorption, slow metabolism, lung problems

The uneven distribution of color on the cheeks can indicate that the metabolism is not quite well, and it can also indicate that nutrients, such as iron and folic acid, are not being properly absorbed.

The cheeks are associated with lung function (if your face becomes very in the exercise sessions it means that you breathe with difficulty), so it is recommended that you pay attention to the way you breathe and consider doing some breathing exercises.

Make sure you don’t touch your face with your hands so much, and keep your space clean. Take into account that acne on the cheeks can also be the result of excessive use of cell phones and dirty pillows.

7. Nose

Could mean: heart and blood problems

The nose and the circulatory system are closely related, so if you find a pimple lying there, it could indicate a blood pressure problem . Increase essential fatty acids in your diet (fish, avocado, flax seeds, olive oil, chia seeds), and avoid irritating foods, for example, spicy foods, alcohol , and coffee.

8. Lower lip

Could mean: digestive problems

The intestines and your lower lip are related according to this ancient wisdom. The lower lip can provide information on how you are doing in your digestive system. Brown spots can mean indigestion and poor enzyme function; It may also be talking about the existence of parasites or worms in the large intestine. Consume more probiotics in your diet. It can help.

Pale lips are often a sign of anemia, so increase your intake of green leafy vegetables and other iron-rich foods. If you notice a bluish cast to your lips, it may indicate that you are not absorbing oxygen well – perhaps heart disease – and if you are experiencing breathlessness along with this, it may be time to see a doctor.

Discoloration in the lower lip could also indicate that the intestines are not working properly, on the other hand, if you notice the edges of the lips with some discoloration, it could mean a kidney problem.

9. Language

Could mean: lung problems, toxin buildup

The color and texture of the tongue show many internal disorders, so inspecting every day (preferably in the morning) is recommended. A tongue with a circular white mass in the center or back of the tongue possibly shows that the body is suffering from a buildup of toxins in the intestine or colon. It might be time for a detox and cleanse.

If the tongue shows a kind of foaminess or abrasions at the edges, it is because there may be some irregularity in the lungs. Aerobic exercise and meditation are important in these cases. If the outer edge of the tongue appears furrowed or irregular, it would indicate poor absorption of nutrients into the bloodstream.

One cause is that you may be eating a lot of processed foods, and sometimes even due to overuse of vitamins. Eat whole foods rich in vitamins, iron, and folate.

10. Chin

It could mean: Hormonal imbalance

If you suffer from hormonal imbalance , surely some acne will appear during the menstrual cycle. Reduce stress as much as possible, get enough sleep, and exercise.
