Yin’s Modern Tongue Diagnostics 

Yin’s Modern Tongue Diagnostics is a systematic integration of tongue diagnosis and treatment. Dr Yin has accumulated over 30 years of experience to establish this system that is based on: 

  • Biological holographic theories
  • Traditional tongue diagnosis
  • Knowledge from ancient and contemporary doctors
  • His own clinical experience

Why Learn Yin’s Modern Tongue Diagnostics? 

  • For an accurate diagnosis of diseases and differentiation of syndromes 
  • To refine your herbal prescriptions
  • To ensure reliability of treatment

“Inability to differentiate such conditions reflects the lack of precise learning on the part of the physician. I am responsible for your ignorance, for I was under the impression that you had mastered the medical knowledge. Therefore I am taking this opportunity to cite from the medical classic on diagnosis, Cong Rong, in order to help you improve your power of discernment”

-Huang Di Nei Jing (Chapter 76, The Importance of Correct Diagnosis)
