What Your Tongue Tells You

The tongue is closely linked to the brain and other internal organs via nerve pathways, so when something in the body is wrong, the tongue shows it. In other words, the state of the tongue reflects a person's state of health.

1. Pale pink colour, with a somewhat rough surface and slight coating - normal, healthy tongue.
2. Black colour - leukemia.
3. Strong, constant, yellow discolouration - liver or gallbladder problems.
4. Brown colour - possible digestive tract trouble like gastritis caused by changes in the formation and breakdown of amino acids.
5. Greyish colour - anaemia.
6. Blue colour - lung disease.
7. Smooth tongue (atrophic glossitis) - deficiencies of vitamins and minerals.
8. Burning sensation or inflammation - vitamin deficiency.
9. Raspberry / strawberry colour - scarlet fever.
10. Coating on just one side of the tongue - nerve disorder or middle ear infection.
11. Swollen, brown-tinged tongue - kidney failure.
12. Geographic tongue (uneven patches resembling smooth, red islands) - digestive tract disorder.
13. Oral thrush (fungus infection) - weakened immune system or antibiotics drugs.

According to TCM theory, the Lung meridian is paired with the Large Intestine meridian.
If the person is coughing over a prolonged period, ask about his bowel movement. Does he have constipation problem? How is his stools? His coughing problem may be addressed by taking 4-6 sachets Lactoberry a day to regulate his bowel movement.
If he has dry cough, try taking 4 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma each time, 3 times a day. Remove the capsules, mix the powder with warm water and drink immediately.
Check the tips of his fingers. Are they swollen? If he has long-term dry cough, and his fingertips are swollen, he may have lung cancer.


The kidney's function is to filter out wastes, minerals and fluids from the body - through urine. Urination eliminates toxic substances and waste products from the body, which is also the main route in which you lose excess water.
If the kidney is affected by disease or accident, it loses this filtering ability. Harmful substances and water then accumulates in the blood and body, eventually leading to end stage renal disease (both kidneys losing 90% of their function).
Kidney functions are impaired by:
  • SLE (lupus), an autoimmune disease where the body's own immune system destroys the kidneys
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Inflammation that leads to scarring of kidney tissue (glomerulonephritis)
  • Polycystic kidney disease.
Dr Chen has proven that Shuang Hor Lingzhi may return kidney function back to normal.  In a test conducted in the Bio-medical Institute in Taiwan, he found that high dose Lingzhi can protect kidneys from inflammation and damage. Please click on this link for details:


When you suddenly feel pains and aches or something that is not right, immediately swallow 20 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma. The first thing that comes to your mind is probably - it's expensive.
But when you work out the Math, it only costs RM95, before discount. If you see a doctor, it costs more, especially if you need to go for follow-up visits or you see a specialist. So taking Lingzhi is relatively not expensive.


How do you choose what health products to take?
Make sure it is Safe. It's better to be 100% Natural. It must be easily Absorbed without burden to the body. And of course it must be Effective. It is important to take nutrients. If you are already consuming certain supplements, you can continue if they meet all the criteria.
Otherwise, we have Yung Kien Pollen that meet all these criteria. If you are interested, I can give you more information.
