A Tongue Diagnosis Session
A practitioner starts a tongue diagnosis session with pointing out the musculoskeletal issues the client is experiencing. "You got all that from my tongue?" is the usual response. Then the practitioner shows them the internal organs involved and how they are involved. The last part of the diagnosis is to share with them the their subconscious stress phrases that are matched or mirrored by the organs. (large intestine weakness = "its taking too long"; hip = "which path"; sinus = "window of opportunity" and so on).
Second part is planning a simple program, after knowing their current lifestyle. And the final part it making it easier for them.
I generally add five elements based body type and teach them how to use their innate skills for a sustainable faster healing and better health.
The reason why we start with following sequence is simple.
1) Musculo-skeletal first
2) Organ pathology second
3) Mind-body interpretation
Most people are aware of their tight back or sore neck. Not if the pancreas (where is pancreas? is the usual response) is stressed or not!!
Subconscious stress phrase is harder to understand.
By this system, we are also helping the client creating better understand their own body and naturally they develop the trust in themselves.
Stage one interpretation:
Right middle back
Left shoulder blade
Stage two interpretation: Internal organ state
Right hamstring / stressed small intestine
Left lumbar / stressed descending colon
Right middle back / stressed liver
Left shoulder blade / stressed lower lobe of left lung
Right shoulder / stressed upper lobe of right lung
Stage three interpretation: Choose the key issues and interpret their subconscious stress phrases
Hamstring / ability to force into a new path
Small intestine / ability to own a life
Lumbar / "ability to be responsible"
Shoulder blade / "ability to have fun"
Lung / "ability to use the opportunities"
Handle with care
Each of these subconscious topic needs to be handle with love and care. For example: The stress phrase "ability to force into a new path" might be linked this client's partner who is stuck in life according to the client. When you mention the "ability to force into a new path", your client might look at you like "what the heck is that?". Exploring this topic might require bit a of a skill. Once they realise the fact, they might swell up. Its our job it reassure and show them what is a more beneficial thinking. And so on.
Prakrti is the Ayurvedic word for body type. Body type is a unique (pra) krti (constitution). Prakrti is about your talents, skills or potential. In other words, its about what are you designed for. Prakruti and Prakriti are the same.
Vikrti is another Ayurvedic concept. The vikrti is used in two contexts, with 2 completely different meanings. 1. Reform, remake, redo or a changed state it represents physiology. 2. Anomaly or distortion it represents an altered physiology -pathology! This is confusing, right?
Prakrti is the skills or potentials and hence assessed and analysed. Vikrti is a discomfort or disease and hence diagnosed.
Prakrti is explored and applied. Prakrti is not treated, cured or balanced. Vikrti needs to be treated with appropriate measures.
Body is optimised to match our prakrti. Body is treated to remove our vikrti.
Body changes. Tendencies and illnesses change. Personalities and preferences change. Body type, but, remains.
