Learn How Your Face Can Reveal What Part of Your Body Is Sick, and What to Do About It

The health secrets hiding behind your face.

The parts of the body are so intrinsically linked that problems in one area can sometimes manifest in very different ways.

In ancient Chinese medicine they would use the face as a way of telling of potential problems elsewhere in the body.

The following is a guide to identifying health problems using the map of your face.

Acne on the cheeks

  • Poor circulation
  • Acne on the T-zone
  • Bacterial buildup
  • Excessive intake of coffee
  • Stress
  • Alcohol abuse
  • Smoking
  • Touching your face frequently

Acne on the chin, jaw or neckline

  • Candida infection
  • Hormonal problems
  • Excessive consumption of starch
  • Excessive consumption of processed sugar

Bladder and small intestine – forehead

Breakouts on your forehead can be linked with problems in the bladder and small intestine such as water infections.

Liver – the area between the eyebrows

Spots between the eyebrows can be caused by too much pressure being put on the liver. Eat more fresh fruit and vegetables and lay off heavy and processed foods and alcohol.

Kidneys and lungs – cheeks

Cheek problems are associated with problems with the kidneys and lungs.

Lungs – upper part of the cheeks

The upper cheeks will break out when the body has suffered air pollution or if you are a smoker.

Stomach – mouth, and chin

Spots around the mouth and chin are linked to stomach problems. If you are having problems with your diet or digestion this will show in these areas.

Heart – nose

Heart problems will manifest in the nose area, which can become red and inflamed if there is problems going on in your chest.

Hormones – neck, and jaw

Hormones can be responsible for some of the worst break-outs. Hormones associated with taking certain medications or the pill will leave you with this kind of break-out. Talk to your doctor about changing the medication you are on.
