My Acupuncturist: Your heart's out of balance.
Me: How do you know?
Her: Your face is red and you talk a lot.
Her: Yes. Now, show me your tongue.
And round and round we go.
Turns out, my tongue is disgusting. Something I knew going in, but her reaction confirmed it. In her words, it is exhibiting signs of both heat and dampness (white fur=dampness; red dots=heat).
See what I mean?
I know. Lovely...
The tip tilts down; the end is red. In Traditional Chinese Medicine that indicates heart imbalance, dampness with heat. In Western Medicine that indicates oral thrush (candida overgrowth). Either way, it's not good. It's also starting to burn--yippee. Time to bust out the coconut oil and do some oil pulling.
On a separate note, treating for parasites (both with meds and acupuncture) is bringing interesting results. For a while, I've seen all sorts of things "exiting the building," but today's find proved most fascinating--three different types of something: one papery, one worm-like, and one resembling algae. I'm starting to feel like a CSI Investigator.
Not bad for a girl who's got nothing wrong with her...LOL.
