The term face refers to the central sense


organ.
The human face, include the hair,
forehead, eyebrow, eyes, nose, ears,
cheeks, mouth, lips, philtrum, teeth, skin,
and chin.
The face has uses of expression,
appearance, and identity .
It also has different senses like olfaction,
taste, hearing, and vision.

Physiognomy
(from the GK. "physis" meaning
'nature' and "gnomon" meaning
'judge' or 'interpreter')
means the assessment of a
person's character or personality
from their outer appearance,
especially the face
www.similima.com

A facial expression results from one or more


motions or positions of the muscles of the face.
These movements convey the emotional state of
the individual to observers.
Facial expressions are a form of nonverbal
communication.
They are a primary means of conveying social
information among humans, but also occur in
most other mammals and some other animal
species.

Some expressions can be accurately


interpreted anger and extreme
contentment.
Others, however, are difficult to interpret
even in familiar individuals. For instance,
disgust and fear can be tough to tell apart
Some faces are often falsely read as
expressing some emotion, even when they
are neutral, because their proportions
naturally resemble those another face
would temporarily assume when emoting.

Facial analysis is not an exact science, but


rather subjective, and open to many
factors in a person's life, from genetics to
environmental influences.

Anger
Concentration
Confusion
Contempt
Desire

The Chinese understood the concept that


the face represents the energies, health
and fortune of a person and they wished to
live in harmony with these.
Certain diseases alter the expression or
appearance of the face because the
disease process is related to the
development or physiology of the face and
affects its structure or behavior or both.

Each face is a map of the past, present


and the future.
Inappropriate diet, persistent negative
emotions, drugs, toxins and stress all
contribute to lines, congestion, and colours
on the face.
The three divisions of face from top to
bottom forehead, midface and lower face
represent the nervous, circulatory and
digestive systems.
And the facial zones represent the internal
organs.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR:


Note the changes in facial skin color or texture;
puffiness or tight drawn areas; swollen or
sunken areas; the appearances of broken
capillaries on the surface of the skin; lines,
pimples, freckles, or other marks; all reflect
changes in the function and structure of the
related organs.
Note each point on the face and its
corresponding organ.
You don't need to work on the facial skin, but
rather you need to work on the corresponding
organ

14

Area A: The mouth, lips, tongue, mouth cavity, area around


the mouth show the digestive functions as a whole. This
area also relates partially to the respiratory function,
especially at its peripheral area.
Area B: The forehead and its periphery, including the
temples and eyebrows, represent the conditions of the
nervous system as a whole.
Area C: The side facial areas, including both eyes, cheeks
and ears, represent the circulatory and excretory systems
as a whole.

SPLEEN AND PANCREAS.
KIDNEYS AND BLADDER.
HEART
LUNG.
STOMACH.
www.similima.com

18

Kidney
the half moon-shaped area under the
eye.
If the area is puffy and blue, an imbalance
in the fluid balance of the body.
Look at the ears and if they are redder
than the skin on the face, the adrenal
glands are overworking.
This also applies if the inner corner of the
eye has a sunken, dark blue look to it.
www.similima.com

19

Liver
Two vertical lines between the eyebrows
Combined with two smaller hook-shaped lines,
this means that the gall bladder is also showing
stress
If the area is dark brown and has a congested
look, the liver is showing signs of energy
stagnation.
This could mean that the liver is stressed,
through pent-up frustration, anger or rich food
and alcohol.
If combined with one-sided headaches, jaw
tension then that indicates fat and hormone
metabolism is affected.
www.similima.com

20

Stomach and Intestines


The mouth shows the energy of the
stomach and intestines
The lower part of the face relates to the
lower abdomen. Congestion, white spots
or a granular-like feeling under the skin
and blotchy areas may point to yeast
infection,
If the chin is red and swollen, it means that
there is a structural weakness in the
organs, candida or stuck energy in the
abdomen.
If the lower lip protrudes, this shows a
sluggish colon
www.similima.com

21

If the top lip is cracked, red, or has spots


at the corner, this could indicate stomach
acidity or heat caused by inappropriate
diet.
Lines which go down the cheek from the
inner corner of the eye are another
indication of a bowel problem.
A yellow colour around the mouth and lack
of tone in the mouth indicate that the
digestive energy is weak. On the other
hand, a green colour indicates that the
liver is the prime cause of the problem.
Very thin lips indicate person taking very
little food and has workaholic tendencies.
www.similima.com

22

Lungs
the nostrils and lower cheek
Redness, puffiness and breakouts
around the nostrils and lower cheek
indicate mucus and congestion in the
lungs.
One may be on the verge of a bronchial
infection if this area suddenly becomes red
and dry.

Energy and Vitality


The eyebrows relate to our creative,
mental and sexual energies and the
amount of drive and go we have.
fine eyebrows denote sensitivity and less
robust health.
Hairs growing in different directions show
a restless mind, someone who needs help
to focus , while pointed eyebrows belong
to someone who is innovative, determined,
independent and likes to be first in
everything they do.
www.similima.com

24

Dark crescent-shaped eyebrows belong to


people who need to make decisions
intuitively and like to work with others.
Thyroid problems are indicated by
eyebrows which dissipate at the ends.

How generally we see the landmarks of one of these
chronic miasms stamped upon the organism. We see it
in every feature and every physiological process; in the
shape and contour of the body; upon the visual
expression, the face, nose, lips, ears, mouth, upon the
hair, its growth, lustre and general beauty or lack of it

Patients who had received a successful

from a polychrest remedy such as Sulphur
(psora), Thuja (sycosis) and Mercury (syphilis)
were examined to determine the relationship
between their facial features and their miasm.
