FACE MAPPING: WHAT YOUR SKIN SAYS ABOUT YOUR OVERALL HEALTH
FACE MAPPING is the ability to see the reflection of the body’s organs on each part of the face by observing the face’s complexion — such as luster, dullness and color as well as the tongue and face expression.
Face mapping is an ancient Japanese technique used to analyze the skin in order to determine the body’s internal health. The concept dates back to several thousands of years and was used for traditional healing. Breakouts and acne that flare up constantly in the same area could indicate what’s going on inside your body. It’s actually quite simple, the face is divided into different areas. Each of these areas represents a different issue, for instance, unhealthy kidneys or even a hormonal imbalance.
Forehead:- Might mean gallbladder and liver issues. According to Ayurveda, the forehead is ruled by the Vata dosha and relates to the nervous system and digestive system, meaning stress and internal stagnation are probably causing breakouts here. Try reducing the amount of processed foods and fat in your diet sure to eat less processed foods, while incorporating meditation and yoga to keep stress low.
Nose:- Having zits on your nose is associated with heightened blood pressure and the cardiovascular health. Get your cholesterol and blood pressure checked a nd focus on leading a healthy lifestyle. Eat more fruits and vegetables, quit smoking and increase fatty acids (avacado, olive oil) to your diet.
Eyes:- Might mean joint problems, intestinal issues, thyroid problems. Eyes can be particularly telling. Small irises point to joint problems and an increased whiteness in the iris can indicate that joints are in a degenerative state. A spotty iris can mean poor nutrient absorption in the intestine. If you observe a light ring around the iris, cut back on your sugar and salt intake as this indicates that you have an excess of both. A yellowish color in the eye can indicate a weak liver.
Cheeks:- Might mean slow metabolism, low absorption of nutrients, lung issues. Patchiness or discoloration on the cheeks can indicate poor metabolism and low absorption of nutrients, such as folic acid and iron. Additionally, cheeks are linked to lung function. (think about how red your face gets during a strenuous workout that has you breathing hard), so pay attention to the quality of your breath and consider breathing exercises.
Chin:- The mouth and center of the chin reflect the stomach and small intestine.. Food allergies, poor diet and constipation can drastically affect this area. Have foods that are fresh and high in fiber to get rid of pimples. Wholegrain foods such as whole wheat pasta, oatmeal and nuts are ideal.
