The Tongue Says it All

In TCVM, one of the diagnostic method is looking at the tongue. Its colour, texture, and various characteristics. Now I am not advanced enough in the course to go into much details, just that TCVM practitioner considered the tongue one of the few things they could visualize and that different region of the tongue corresponds to the 5 elemental system.

Just for fun, I drew this picture to help myself memorize the elemental systems for now.
