Ann Cecil-Sterman is an acupuncturist clinician, teacher, and author of the acclaimed books, Advanced Acupuncture and The Art of Pulse Diagnosis. Tongue Diagnosis, Visible Responses to Pathology contains a detailed, step-by-step exploration of the energetics of internal health and shows how that leads to a method of tongue diagnosis, useful for any style of Chinese medicine practice and invaluable for telemedicine. The aim of this book is to convey the principles of diagnosis rather than require memorization of tongue presentations. In this way any tongue viewed can be approached step-by-step, leading to an insightful and accurate diagnosis. Tongue Diagnosis includes discussions and analysis of tongue shape, length, moisture, texture, color, coverage, coat, spots, froth, lines, cracks, thorns, eruptions, hollows, trapped heat, pulse vectors, sublingual veins, and organ function, all as described on the tongue. Much of this material appears in print for the first time including discussion of tongue diagnostics for all the channels of acupuncture, including Primary channels and the complement channels: the Eight Extraordinary, Divergent, Luo, and Sinew meridians. Throughout the theory, case studies, and frequently asked questions, there are methodical protocols that can deeply inform everyone's practice, from beginners to advanced practitioners, and of particular use not only to acupuncturists and herbalists but dietary practitioners, and beyond. The book includes the practice of correlating tongue indicators with advanced dietetics. Tongue Diagnosis contains 306 photographs and 96 diagrams. Designed and illustrated by Cody Dodo. Foreword by Dr. Hung Tran. Printed in the USA, London, or Melbourne. Hard Cover, 202 pages.
