The large intestine line follows the cheekbone curving from near the inner eye socket to near the outer lip along the nose. The depth, pouching, forking, and shapes running along this line are all indicators of the tone, transit time and vitality of the organ. The more droop along the cheek/nose line that forms a pouch, as though the tissue is a little bit plump and then it’s hanging over, the more serious the issue.
The following table summarizes conditions indicated by examining large intestine lines:
|Large intestine line
|Early indication of sluggish elimination
|Blue coloration in line – pull cheek away from nose to note coloration.
|Lack of oxygenation, lack of blood circulation
|Pimples in line
|Toxicity, re-absorption of fecal matter
|A feathered line
|Delicate constitution, sensitive to foods and environment
|A pouched line, plump which droops over
|Stagnation, diet low in fiber and/or rich in carbohydrates
|A forked line
|Scar from a polyp removed; it is as though it has created a pinch in the system
Scar from lesion, hemorrhoid, fissure
|Forked line with opposite line or lines beginning to create a diamond shape
|Stagnation in the large intestine caused by a blockage, tumor, prolapse W.LeS.
|A diamond shape, and within the diamond is a puffy pouch. This is much more dramatic than a “plain” pouch.
Look to the upper forehead, base of skull headache, fingernails with ridges, skin outbreaks, candida and tension in muscles.
