The lustre and the color of the face can be differentiated namely; blue, yellow, red, pale and dark grey. Observation of the lustre of the face is to distinguish whether the complextion is bright and moist or dark and haggard. Different races people have different skin colors. However, a lustrous skin with natural color is considered normal.
The color and lustre of the face are the outward manifestation of the relative strength of blood and energy of the organs. Their changes often suggest various pathological conditions. According to energy concepts of ACUPUNCTURE SuJok, these observations of the face changes are valuable for diagnosing disease in the particular organ.
Indications of face discolorations;
If RED color often indicates heat syndromes, which may be of deficiency type or of excess type. When the whole face is red, it is a sign of a heat syndrome of excess type resulting from either exposure to exogenous pathogenic factors with the symptoms of fever, or hyperactivity of the organs. The presence of molar flush accompanied by tidal fever and night sweating suggests an interior heat syndrome due to deficiency of energy.
If PALE color indicates cold syndromes of deficiency and loss of blood. A bright white face with a puffy, bloated appearance is a sign of deficiency of energy. If the pale face is withered, it signifies blood deficiency.
If YELLOW color indicates syndromes of deficiency type and damp syndromes. When the entire body including the face, eyes and skin is yellow, it could be jaundice. If yellowness tends toward bright orange, it is called stomach jaundice means resulting from damp heat. If the yellow is smoky dark, it is called liver jaundice resulting from either cold damp or long term stagnation of blood. A pale yellow complexion without brightness is a sign of deficiency of both energy and blood.
A BLUE color indicates cold, painful syndromes, stagnation of blood and convulsions. A pale complexion with a blue tint is seen, a syndrome of excessive cold with the symptom of pain in epigastria and abdomen. Blue purplish face and lips with the intermittent pain in the pericardial region or behind the sternum are due to stagnation of heart blood. Blue purplish face and lips accompanied by high fever and violent movement of the limbs are signs of infantile convulsion.
If DARK GREY color indicates deficiency of kidney and blood stagnation. But a pale and dark complexion accompanied with lumbar soreness and cold feet suggests insufficiency of bladder. A dark complexion without brightness, accompanied by scaly skin signifies prolonged stagnation of blood.
A lustrous and moist complexion indicates the disease is mild, less energy and blood deficient whilst a dark and haggard complexion suggests that the disease is severe and the prognosis is poor.
As to the clinical significance of the color of secretions and excretions such as nasal discharge, sputum, urine and vaginal discharge, those clear and white in color denotes deficiency and cold, while turbid and yellow in color indicate excess.
THUS; color alone itself indicates the symptoms of organs affected either in deficiency or in excessive energy.
