Dr Oz: What Your Face Reveals About Your Health
Dr. Mao Ni says the face is a map to our body because it can reveal clues about our health, including how the cheeks and chin can show signs of diseases you might not even know you have. Dr. Ni is a Chinese Medicine Doctor who tells Dr. Oz that face mapping goes back thousands of years to a time before we had sophisticated medical tests to diagnose illness and disease. He shared how various parts of the face can reveal the truth about your health.
- The chin has a lot to do with your reproductive and hormonal health, so discoloration or redness could be a sign of excess estrogen or kidney weakness, especially for women.
- The right cheek corresponds to your lungs and respiratory system, as well as your intestines, so Dr. Mao Ni says you might see redness in the cheek if you are suffering from allergies or prone to asthma attacks. Avoid dairy, gluten, and sugar while increasing your intake of cruciferous vegetables like broccoli to reduce the redness and improve your health.
- The left cheek is connected with your liver, so if you have a yellowish hue or visible capillaries then you might have a liver imbalance such as gallstones.
- The dimple above your lips often shows signs of reproductive health issues, so if you have horizontal lines or dryness in that dimple area it could indicate infertility issues.
