Under the tongue


Hi Chad,

I'm looking for a description of the area under the tongue.

I only know that if they are dark, it means stagnation of blood. But I know it 's possible to "see" more signs...for example, cist/fibroid, tumors ...can they be " small yellowish pieces that go around the veins, depending of their position in the body (from top to toe), and they are reflexted on the line of the veins under the tongue?

Thank you very much!


I can offer a little more on the underside of the tongue than what you&#39ve presented above. Perhaps Chad will chime in after me.

In so far as color, you are correct, the darker the veins, the more blood stasis is involved. If they are pale, grey, and distended, it&#39s been taught to me that this involves more dampness and phlegm accumulation. If you see a grey pallor with dark purple / black veins running through, then you probably have a combination of things that are stuck (I&#39d guess yellow hue to the tongue tissue would indicate phlegm, too, possibly with heat, but I&#39ve never heard of yellow on the underside of the tongue).

I pay attention to the areas of distention, and correlate the root (framing the frenulum) with the Lower Jiao, the middle with the Middle Jiao and toward the tip with the Heart & head in the Upper Jiao.

Lastly is the amount of distention in the veins — the wider the vein, in theory, the more the stagnation.
