I've been tracking my tongue according to CTM.
When I started, I had candida (the coating on my tongue). At this point, I still was eating too much fat, from nuts, and still had many non-raw fatty treats at least every 2 days.
My tongue was purple. I was fighting infections and inflammation. There was still issues my body was dealing with. I actually don't know what the cracks mean, except that they probably show stomach problems (which I had).
Today, is a big difference! The cracks and fur are mostly gone! However, it is a pale pink, meaning low energy.
This actually gives me even more hope! I feel better than I have in my whole 30's, and often better than I have my whole life. So by the time my tongue is a nice pink, I will feel INCREDIBLE!
I lived in the orient for 3 years. I was fascinated how everyone looked 10 to 20 years younger than westerners. Plus no one was using anti-perspirant.
They also rarely had bad breath. And most ladies had beautiful legs! Even the 60 year olds! It also fascinated me how flexible they were. I saw many older ladies doing the splits! Anywho, they're definitely doing so much right!
Hello, I used the foot detox pads on and off several years ago. I didn't feel any difference and as an experiment put some on parts of my body that don't sweat so much and they were dry in the morning without the dark brown discoloration. Tried putting some tap water on a pad and it caused it to turn the dark brown color.
Found them to be more trouble than its worth since that dark brown sticky stuff as well as the tape would leave a sticky residue on my feet that required major scrubbing to try to remove. If I didn't get it all off, fuzz from my socks and dirt from the floor would stick to my feet.
Pulse diagnosis takes many years of training, you will not be able to get much from it without the training. However iridology might be much easier and reveal far more. I will warn you that your Kidney Qi is almost certain to be weak and show a marking in the kidney zones of both eyes. This DOES NOT MEAN a Kidney problem. I must point that out because it relates to the nervous system within the kidney and also a brain area relating to mood and indicates your stress response.
CFS is a condition of excess Yin and anything which can counter that will be of benefit. That includes eating a more Yang diet rather than a Yin diet. Fruits and above ground vegetables are Yin in nature whereas below ground vegetables and Animal meats are beneficial, ie more Yang.
The best results I have got are from German chamomile essential oil, a dropper bottle of 20 to 25ml and half fill with mineral/filtered or distilled water and then add ONE drop of German Chamomile essential oil [eo]. Then get a glass and shake the dropper bottle as vigorously as you can and quickly draw up the liquid and add ONE drop of that watered down oil into the glass. If you add the oil to a dark liquid such as a little blackcurrant juice you will see the oil float and you can judge how strong it is as it will reduce over time as you use it. You will need to judge when to top up the dropper bottle back to 1/2 full and add another drop of German Chamomile eo. I do it about every two weeks so a small amount lasts quite a long time. It does need to be pure German Chamomile eo, you must be certain of that.
You can use tongue diagnosis to guide you. A tongue with a thick coating indicates excess Yin, tiredness etc whereas a Red tongue with little or no coating indicates high energy levels. You can take too much of this so start slowly with one drop from the watered down dropper bottle and you can increase to two drops but I would not go any further. Instead, increase the frequency of consumption. It will take about 1.5 to 2 hours to take effect and it might change the tongue a little, making it look redder below the coating which may reduce a little. This could make your eyes redder and a little bloodshot. A small amount of Aloe vera mixed in can lessen this and I do mean small amount, 2 to 3 ml. I used to use a disposable 10ml syringe with a plug that fits into the neck of the Aloe vera bottle, the syringe should contain the quantity of air that you intend drawing up and then invert it all and push the air into the bottle and draw up the required Aloe so that you know precisely how much you are using. The syringe/plugs are available on ebay.
It sounds like your high blood pressure could be due to some degree of kidney disease. That is something which I think that you should do all to prevent getting any worse! To do that you need to lower your homocysteine levels which requires optimizing methylation and working around any genetic polymorphisms which could be causing high homocysteine levels. Taking supplements which help lower homocysteine, listed in no particular order, such as P-5-P (vit b6), TriMethylGlycine (TMG), R-5-P (vit b2), magnesium, folate 5-methyltetrahydrofolate & B12 methylcobalmin. TMG should help your fatigue, you might need about 2-3 ml scoop if you buy TMG powder. I take that kind of quantity myself. However do not overdo it, check your tongue before you take any and again after an hour or two after taking it. If your fatigued you will have a thick tongue coating whereas after taking TMG the tongue coating should be a lot less. TMG has Yang energy something which is helpful for Yin diseases.
Taking serrapeptase, nattokinase or lumbrokinase might help clear and restore your circulation and help your kidneys. Taking any of those with a herb to direct towards the kidney might prove beneficial such as Tu Si Zi (Chinese Dodder seed) and Gou Qi Zi (wolfberry/Goji berries). There are herbs which warm the kidney which might also help. Vit K might also be beneficial.
What explains multiple food sensitivities much better than poor adrenals is Increased Intestinal Permeability Syndrome aka Leaky Gut. That is also what is causing your fatigue. Forget adrenal exhaustion because I very much doubt that you have it. It's a nonsense self diagnosis IMO with little basis in fact. Addisons disease is serious but fairly rare because it rarely gets that far, there is usually some adrenal function remaining even if the kidneys & nervous system becomes seriously affected by stress. I have some reduced adrenal function due to stress but it does not result in addisons disease or any detectable hypoadrenal function after my doctor referred me for an adrenal test due to tiredness/exhaustion. This can show in the iris of the eye at 6 o clock as a grey marking. The adrenals are at the top of this area just outside the autonomic nerve wreath which is the last to be affected by prolonged stress. Any greying of the kidney area indicates susceptibility to stress and high levels of cortisol as the body adapts to stress. The more that the kidney zone shows grey and the further into the zone that it goes, the higher the default cortisol level will be. BTW a grey marking does not indicate kidney problems! It is only the nervous system which is affected. Circulatory problems show near the outside of the iris in the circulatory zone as a discolouration, the more that goes inwards, the worse it is.
