Move your tongue to stay young
According to Chinese medicine theory, the five senses are closely related to the five organs, hence the saying ‘nose is the sense of the lungs, eyes are the sense of the liver, mouth is sense of the spleen, tongue is the sense of the heart, nose is sense of the kidneys.’ The health of your heart is reflected in your tongue- red and moist tongue means you have sufficient qi and blood; nimble tongue means your heart function is healthy. Exercising your tongue can directly stimulate the mind and improve overall health.
