Face mapping is a simple way to understand how healthy you are.
Your skin is an outward reflection of your inner health. Today I will teach you how to look at your skin and your eyes as a way to determine your health.
Many people look at a body's outer appearance as a way to determine overall health. Considering that some people with plenty of muscle and low body fat unexpectedly drop dead or have serious health concerns, maybe body composition isn’t the best gauge of vitality.
Face Mapping As An Ancient Tradition
Many ancient medical practices first look at the face for signs of disease. Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, and ancient Greek medicine all have extensive systems of facial diagnosis. Even today, a technique used in modern medicine practices involves looking at the eyes.
For example, bulging eyes are a classic symptom of hyperthyroidism. Sunken eyes indicate hypothyroidism. Pale lips and conjunctiva around the eyes indicate anemia. And, bloodshot eyes indicate allergies.
What Skin Tone Says About Your Health
Let’s get down to looking at your own face, start by looking at your overall facial complexion.
Look for any skin abnormalities. Determine the undertone of your skin, then look for any variation from your normal skin color.
If you have darker skin you may want to rely on looking at the whites of your eyes or your palm to find the undertone of your skin.
Having an undertone of red in your skin or eyes or broken capillaries can indicate that your heart and cardiovascular system are overworking. Also, broken capillaries can indicate high blood pressure or that you are prone to heart attacks. Red also indicates inflammation, immune imbalance, allergies, rheumatoid arthritis.
All of the above mentioned red issues are gut issues and more often than not, red tones in the skin are connected to gut health.
Brown is often a sign that the liver and gallbladder are overworking. If you see brown in the eyes, this is a sign. Brown could mean excess salt or high cholesterol.
Yellow is a sign that the pancreas, liver, and gallbladder are overworking. When bile isn’t flowing properly it ends up in the blood and it is often expressed in the skin. If you take a closer look, your skin is fairly translucent and you can see your blood through your skin.
Green, although rarely seen, is associated with cancer.
Blue and purple are are strong signs of poor heart health. When there are broken capillaries in the face that start to turn blue or purple, it means you are more prone to heart attacks because your cardiovascular system is working much harder than normal.
The Eyes Are Windows To Your Health
Besides your face, you want to look at the eyes for the same discolorations. Also, pay attention to the skin around the eyes.
Bags under your eyes can indicate kidney issues. Dark circles under your eyes can indicate adrenal fatigue, which means your body is experiencing extreme exhaustion.
Both your eyes and your gut are mucous membranes and they mirror each other so whatever is going on in the gut, you will be able to identify in your eyes.
When people complain of allergies, another gut-based issue, we know there is inflammation and other stuff happening. You can see these issues expressed in the eyes through conjunctivitis, runny, gunky, or bloodshot eyes. Sometimes you’ll also see the conjunctiva get swollen and red.
Using Face Mapping With Others
When you are trying to determine what is going on with someone’s health when looking at their face, you want to:
- Start by looking for a glitter in their eyes. Look and perceive their overall spiritual presence.
- Scan outward from their eyes and look at the whites, notice any color. Ideally, the whites of their eyes should be bright white without any color. Notice blood vessels. They also shouldn’t be dull, they should sparkle and look relaxed.
- Next look under the eyes and notice the overall structure of the face, notice any lines or creases. Lines or creases coming out of the corners of the eyes can indicate vitamin depletion. If this is the issue you then want to focus on absorption.
- If there is a crease in the center of the forehead that indicates stress on the liver, and when there is liver stress the person tends to hold onto a lot of anger.
- Look at the thickness or thinness of the skin. Thick and rough skin indicates a diet high in animal fats.
- Look for a firm energetic skin tone without deep creasing. This indicates that the person is getting all of the vitamins and nutrients that they eat. Their body is absorbing properly in their digestive tract and is able to convert and use all these nutrients to stay healthy.
- The skin should really be clean, clear, blemish-free and in healthy individuals, it has this underlying sun-kissed look to it. There is no pastiness, no ashiness, or mottled appearance. This glow is from the clean blood that is coursing through the veins. When the blood is filled with toxins, macrophages, or white blood cells, the number of macrophages and white blood cells increase to devour the excess cellular debris. This is what creates that ashy complexion. These toxins are created in the highest quantity inside the body of an unhealthy person.
Insights From Face Mapping Observations
You have 2-3 lbs of bacteria living inside your body. There are many different ways that the body can end up with the wrong bacteria in it.
The wrong bacteria and yeasts that are growing inside the gut excrete toxins as they digest foods that you are eating. As those toxins get absorbed directly into your bloodstream, your body becomes a human sewer for the bacterial metropolis that is growing in your bioterrain.
Acne and other skin blemishes indicate clogged elimination channels.
If your blood is full of these toxins, the macrophages and white blood cells are running through your system and things are all gunked up. You can see that through the skin. You can tell healthy people just by seeing how their skin glows and how their eyes sparkle.
The skin is the largest of the seven channels of elimination. I call it the last resort channel. Other elimination channels are blood, liver, lymph, lung, colon, and kidneys. All of these other six channels are part of this big, interconnected system. Once they surpass their workload threshhold, they dump toxins into the skin.
Notice on the rest of the body any skin abnormalities such as rashes, hives, psoriasis, eczema, or any other inconsistencies. This will tell you clogged your other elimination channels.
