Diagnosing the Metal Element Organs from the Face

Course Overview

This course looks at the Metal Element and how it is related to the lungs and large intestine and is seen on the Face. These are the cheeks, cheekbones, nose, lower lips and Fa Ling (purpose lines). The cheeks and cheekbones relate to the Wei Qi (our immune system) lung pathologies and are also the area where the emotions of grief and sadness are held. The nose reflects chronic lung conditions as well as issues with the spine and muscles of the neck and back. Large intestine issues can be seen on the lower lip and the Fa Ling lines are related to our purpose in life and if we are on that path. Certain foods help strengthen the lungs, clear damp and phlegm and tonify deficiencies. We will look at them as well as some acupuncture points.
