Fingernail & Tongue Analysis
The fingernails show detectable characteristics that correspond to organ functions. The approximate time period of 6-8 months is required for a nail to grow from the matrix (the base of the nail) to the edge of the finger.
The tongue's top epithelial layer regenerates approximately every 3-4 days. The tongue also shows detectable characteristics that correspond to organ functions. It is the tongue's quick growth cycle that makes it ideal for determining immediate changes in the body. Both fingernail and tongue analysis have been used in Chinese and Ayurveda practices for thousands of years. I use many modalities, but place great emphasis on Dr. Tsu-Tsair Chi's methods.
