According to traditional Chinese medicine, the face is a very crucial part of our body which can also give indication about the health of our other organs. This craft has been used to diagnose and treat patients for many a millennium and is tried and tested.
The logic behind this practice is that our skin is quite sensitive in the facial region. As a result, when anything is out of the ordinary in any other part of our body, it is very evident on our face as well. Different organs have different part of the face and symptoms associated with it and if you want to know what is what, keep reading.
The connection of the heart and the nose- If you are facing a lot of nose related problems then it means that either bloating, hypertension, pollution, flatulence or poor circulation are to blame.

The connection of the small intestine and bladder to the forehead- Breakouts and itching on the surface of your forehead is an indication that your small intestine and the bladder are under too much strain. Too much stress, or sugar, fatty foods and canned foods and consumption of a lot of alcohol can bring about these problems. It is advisable that you sleep enough and drink more water. A balanced diet too is necessary.
The connection between fluctuations in the hormones to chin and mouth- Breakouts on the chin or ulcers in the mouth could be because of a hormonal imbalance in your body.

It is best for you if you stay away from all these ingredients at least till you start feeling better.
The connection between liver problems and the area in between the eyebrows- When you have trouble between your eyebrows that usually means that something is not quite right with your liver.
