You hear all the time about the latest fads, vitamins, diets, and supplements, but now it’s easy to get a customized recommendation based on what your tongue is literally telling you.
Miami Beach, FL (PRWEB) November 30, 2011
Previously, to overcome holiday angst and stress, people have relied on generic 'holiday health tips.' But not this year. Thanks to an innovative new mobile app for the iPhone, iPad and Android, Tungz! gives people specific health recommendations based on how the tongue looks. Is it pink? Red? Pale? Slimy? Cracked? Dry? Each reveals a different imbalance and requires a different treatment according to Chinese medicine, which has long considered the tongue a mirror of health.
As the first app devoted to tongue assessment, Tungz! mobile app puts the wisdom of the ancients into modern hands. First, the user compares their tongue to a database of ones that are healthy in order to see how they match up. Then, they find a tongue that looks like theirs to assess their energy, or Qi (pronounced “chee”), discovering the common health obstacles, and how to overcome them, specific to that tongue feature. “Tungz! eliminates the guesswork and tells you what you need for your body,” says Chinese medicine acupuncture physician James Rohr, who developed the app. “You hear all the time about the latest fads, vitamins, diets, and supplements, but now it’s easy to get a customized recommendation based on what your tongue is literally telling you.”
Rohr recommends sipping one of his Tungz Teas, which he formulated based on time-honored traditions to support the various constitution types. Not all teas are healthy for all energy levels, so the comprehensive Tungz! approach lets the user first analyze their tongue, then find their tea and finally redress some of the internal imbalances. “With acupressure points, the right diet, exercise, and meditation, as well as making time for tea - like my Take It Easy tea which contains astragalus for energy and vitality, and skullcap to quiet your mental chatter – it’s easy to dial down some of the holiday stress and dial in your health. These techniques and teas formulations reflect the wisdom of the ancients; I just packaged them for our 24/7 lifestyle.”
The Tungz! app is now available at the Apple and Android app stores. For people looking for an even more personalized assessment, help is just a picture and an email away. As part of the Custom-Blend Tungz Tea package, available at http://www.tungzteas.com, Rohr will personally evaluate a picture of the user's tongue and then customize a variety pack of teas specific to their constitution, so that a happy and healthy holiday season and new year can be enjoyed.
