Traditional Medicine’s Face Map Reveals What Part Of Your Body Is Sick, And What To Do!
For thousands of years, Chinese healers have been reading faces to detect and diagnose all kinds of diseases. Facial skin is sensitive and can reflect internal changes faster than other parts of the body.
Your face is the window into gaining insight about the health of your internal organs. In fact, skin issues, like dry patches, redness or acne can be directly connected to the inner workings of your body. With that, face mapping has become an effective and popular tool to pinpoint internal health ailments and address the issue accordingly.
What is Face Mapping?
Your skin is actually the largest organ in your body—adults have about 8 pounds and 22 square feet of skin. Chinese face mapping theorizes that if your skin is not healthy, there is likely an issue somewhere else in your body.
Your face can also reveal things about how you really feel, even if you try to mask those feelings. As such, your face can be a wonderful indication of what is happening internally since it reflects internal changes faster than other parts of your body. It essentially represents trouble brewing inside that you can’t otherwise see without more invasive measures.
Diet and Lifestyle Face Mapping
From hormonal imbalances to smoking, your face may be trying to tell you something really important! Health issues caused by external factors, like anxiety or stress, can lead to acne flare up on your skin. Nearly all of these conditions or substances are within your power!
– Poor circulation

– Excessively touching your face
Chin, Jaw and Neckline
– Processed sugars
– Excess starchy foods
Face Mapping by Organ
While the list above may help pinpoint diet and lifestyle acne-provokers, pinpointing the location a variety of skin flare-ups have proven to also be directly linked to specific internal organs. In other words, if you’ve ruled out the health issues above, locating the specific organ at risk could be your next step.
Forehead: Bladder and small intestine
Cause: Consuming too much fats and low-fiber food leads to slow digestion, as well as too much alcohol, sugar, night life and stress. Poor digestion, toxin buildup and dehydration.
Cure: Drink large amount of water, eat more raw food, avoid drinking alcohol and try to have a better sleep at night. Drinking green tea throughout the day to flush out unwanted buildup and to neutralize toxins.
Between the eyebrows: Liver
Cause: When you consume a lot of meat, your stomach is working too much and doesn’t get the rest it needs, which leads to decreased liver function. Individuals whose liver is not functioning properly (or have liver disease) have been known to develop acne on noses. If you persistently have acne in this area, it means that you have impaired liver function.
Cure: You should eat healthier and fresh foods, get more exposure to fresh air, and engage in physical activities more often.
The Arches of your Eyebrows and Eye Area: Kidneys
On the Chinese face map, this area represents kidney problems. Issues include such things as pimples or blemishes as well as puffiness and swollen lower eyelids and dark circles under your eyes.
Cause: Overworked kidneys typically result from too much salt or preservatives, smoking, excessive alcohol, poor circulation, and/or a weakened heart.
Cure: Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. Also, reduce your caffeine intake and avoid alcohol, processed foods, salty foods, as well as sweetened drinks.
Upper Part of the Cheeks: Lungs
This area often represents issues with your lungs and respiratory system as well as possible issues with your metabolism and/or your ability to absorb nutrients.
Causes: Blemishes on the crest of your cheekbones, especially, may represent respiratory problems caused by allergies or smoking. Persistent overheating can also cause issues in this area, as can environmental toxins in your indoor air. People with asthma will often experience cheek blemishes.
Cure: Reduce your expose to indoor toxins such as air fresheners, candles, and commercial household cleaners etc. that studies show cause disease. Use natural products when you can and open your windows at least once a day. Stop smoking and exercise regularly outside to assure you get fresh, clean air whenever possible.
Cause: Your nose is directly connected to your heart health. Swelling, redness or acne on the nose have been linked to hypertension and high blood pressure.
Cure: Reduce your salt consumption, increase the intake of fruits and veggies, and exercise more often. You should drink organic green tea more often in order to eliminate the harmful toxins from your body.
Mouth and Chin: Stomach
Cause: High-fat food that is loaded with fat, sugar and stimulants such as caffeine and alcohol. This area is most impacted while using spiced foods. Staying up late in the night, and stress can result in imbalance.
Cure: Consume fermented foods that will balance your organism. Consume large amounts of fruits and vegetables. Small lifestyle changes can keep your digestive tract running smoothly.
Jaw and neck: Hormones
Skin issues on your chin and jaw area typically point to hormonal imbalances.
Cause: Blemishes on either side of your chin indicate internal hormonal changes and/or stress. Because of this, women often find they have issues in this area during their menstrual cycle.
Cure: Take omega-3 fatty acids to help regulate your hormones. Adopt a healthy lifestyle by reducing stress as much as possible. Make sure to go to sleep early and wake up early—get at least 7-8 hours each night. Practice stress management techniques like yoga and meditation and drink plenty of water while eating more leafy greens. Plus, try to eat hormone-regulating foods.
