Chuck Norris gives bad health a black eye

Chuck, I was recently watching a health segment on television. The university professor who was interviewed said our faces can tell us about the condition of our health. What do you think about that? – “Facing Reality” in Fredericksburg, Va.

This is a fascinating issue because it’s true – or most of it. Your face can be a road map to your health, and it can help you to be a detective of what’s going on inside your body.

The process is called face mapping or face reading, and it originated in China roughly 3,000 years ago.

During a recent interview on television, Dr. Philippa Cheetham from the urology department at Winthrop-University Hospital spoke for many in the medical community when she said: “One of the first things that I learned at medical school was how to look at the face to look for signs of disease. … The face can tell us so much about your medical health.”

Similarly, cardiologist David Friedman from Plainview Hospital said that the face is an important diagnostic he uses every day in his practice and that it is “a clue that something is happening internally.”

So how do some of our external facial features reveal our internal health? Here are a few examples:

You’ve heard the adage that something might be as plain as the nose on your face. That just might be the case with your health, so make an appointment to see your physician or health practitioner to discuss what you see in the mirror.

Reading faces for health gives a whole new meaning to the saying, “It’s written all over your face.”

Like it or not, when it comes to our health, we need to face the music!

Next week, I will not only discuss other features – such as earlobes and receding hairlines – and their correlations to internal health but also tell you what your face reveals about your personality.
