Tongue Diagnosis in Chinese Medicine

I really believe this book is excellent for those TCM students that are of intermediate level(For beginers buy The Web That has No Weaver). Maciocia's book, I find is very common in Accupunture schools along with his book on pulse diagnosis. If the student understands basic TCM concepts and wants to expand his/her knowledge, whether a TCM student or a student in another type of Complementary Alternative Medicine, this is the next step. This book is through, concise, and easily understood. Be Well and others will be too. Enjoy.

Top Notch

This is one of the most useful, attractive, and interesting books on TCM that I have in my library. The writing is good and well organized, the illustrations are excellent and the photographs are worth ... well ... a thousand words.IMHO, this is one of the most important books a student of TCM can have. I think it should be the 2nd book a TCM student buys. The first would be a good fundamentals book (such as Fundamentals of Chinese Medicine by Wiseman and Ellis).Highly recommended.

For serious tongue diagnosis

This is the best text on tongue diagnosis I know of. It is clear and to the point and leads you through the many difficulties in tongue Diagnosis. The study of this book will help and serious student of TCM with his/her diagnostics. This is a must have, in my opinion, for all TCM students.

simply the best!

tongue diagnosis in this book gave me a lot and in the best easy way that can be explained in such a complex way of began with a history of the tongue diagnosis, that followed by a short explanations of the diffrent ways of diagnosis through all the chinese dynasties,but the method that represent here in this book is the most practical comprehansive yet simply and gives you the reader a more deep understanding and diagnosing of this art of diagnosing,for instance:while some tongue diagnostics used (in the past mainly)to observe only by the color,and some others by the shape,some on marks on the tongue, this book explains what are the meanings of each one of them, and how they can be worked together in the diagnosis.the method that are used in this outstanding book is the one that can be detected and aproved by clinical tests,and i as a orthomoleculr-nutritionist that use the basic of the knoledge of this book in order to have a wide veriety of diagnostic tools can say in a very confident way:it is simply true and the best book on the subjecy!

All you ever wanted to know about tongue diagnosis

This is a very comprehensive book on tongue diagnosis in TCM for evaluating health. It not only goes into the usual information on tongue color, color & thickness of coating, size & shape of the tongue, features (such as fissures), etc., it gives information on the exceptions to the general rules.The book also goes into some detail on why and how tongue characteristics develop. Tongue swollen, teeth marks visible along the edges? Suspect Spleen problems because the Spleen is not performing its function of transporting fluids in the body.No photograph adequately can capture all the subtleties of tongue diagnosis. But the extensive collection of photos in this book do a good job of indicating what is meant by a pale tongue, a red tongue, a swollen tongue, a thick or thin coating, etc.I recommend this book for serious TCM students and for people who want to learn how health problems can be revealed by the tongue.
