Whether you have a passing interest or are wishing to learn more for proffesional usage, this book is the best one I have ever seen on oriental tongue diagnosis. Having done several courses on the subject, it is most useful to have a point of reference and a reminder. The examples shown in the pictures are great and I know that I will refer back to them again and again as it is very difficult to recall all the aspects associated with the diagnosis. There are also some very useful case studies in the back, which again gives you an idea of exactly what you are looking for and what assumptions can be made. There is not much more to say - it is a great book for those who are interested in the subject, and contains sufficiant specific information to enable the reader to gain a good practical grasp of the concept. Another book which will be of interest and cover the basic concepts of oriental medicine is The Web that Has no Weaver. This will give you all the information you need to beable to relate what you see on the tongue to the oriental belief system in terms of Yin, Yang, Shen, chakra's, meridians/channels etc.

As every person that has studdied, or is studdying Chinese Medicine/Acupuncture will know, tounge diagnosis is absolutely crucial to your practice, yet it is very tricky to master. This book will help you, I did not discover it until my third year of study, but I wish I had owned it since day one as it gives such clear pictures and information which really does help you get to grips with it.

I know its not cheap, but I have to say that before I brought this particular book I invested in lots of other books on tongue diagnosis which were confusing, badly translated, inadaquately illustrated... and when added together cost a lot more than this one. Maybe try and pick up a second hand copy if you can find one.

Excellent atlas of tongue diagnosis 18 July 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent book for anyone interested in Chinese tongue diagnosis. The book is divided into sections according to pattern (Kidney disharmonies, Stomach and Spleen disharmonies, etc). Each section contains approximately 30 full-color, well-photographed tongues representing the pattern. This makes it easy to see the range of tongue signs for each pattern. Also, the description of the tongue, the patient's symptoms, Western diagnosis and Chinese diagnosis are printed next to the photo of the tongue for easy reference. (You don't have to flip back and forth between the text pages and the color plates, as in Maciocia's Tongue Diagnosis in Chinese Medicine.) This book isn't cheap, but the quality of the photographs and the clear description of the tongues makes it a very worthwile investment.

Atlas of Chinese Tongue Diagnosis Volume 1 3 Aug. 2005
By S. Miller - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As a medical professional, I have an interest in what works to bring health to the system. At times, alternative medicines when appropriately applied, in the hands of the right people, ones trained in health care and disease, can offer stimulating results. But the question of how to obtain reliable material to diagnose and treat a disease remains a current issue. This book helps bridge the gap between Chinese diagnostics and the Western approach to disease. Atlas of Chinese Tongue Diagnosis provides visual illustrations of various ailments, mapped outwardly on the tongue, and includes written descriptions and symptoms. When applicable, it correlates the topography of the tongue to Western disease. However, the book is not all inclusive. It lacks treatment. I would suggest a companion, Radiant Health by Ron Teeguarden. Teeguarden's work covers portions of the ancient Chinese art of health and offers a treatment program designed to correct deficencies and disturbances in Qi. The two together provide a reliable source for a medical professional to understand and apply the basics in Chinese medicine. I highly rate this book when accompanied with Teeguarden's.

Format: Hardcover
The best book about tongue diagnosis. Many examples with diagnosis of western and Chinese medicine. The only missing item - lack in theoretical description.
