How do you know if you are over heated or overly cold? Just look at your tongue. If your tongue has white or black coating on top, it means your internal organs are overly cold. If your tongue has yellow or red coating on top or small red dots on tip of the tongue or the edge of the tongue is more red than rest of the it, it means your body is over heated.
There are other symptoms too. The over heated symptoms are: acne, bleeding gum, painful tongue, bleeding nose, sputum without getting cold, dry eyes, dry nose, dry skin, dry mouth, easy to be thirsty, easy to be tired, easy to be angry or hot flush. The overly cold symptoms are: cold hands and feet, face more in blue tone than pink, pee a lot, light sleep at night, dry hair, losing hair, bloody eyes or feel weak.
Normally, the "over heated" is a short term. It comes and goes. But "overly cold" is long term. It's more like a condition.
You can be over heated or overly cold at anytime if you don't live in a healthy life style or have balanced diet. our body is easier to be over heated when summer change into the fall. The Chinese traditional health care believes that is because the cooler weather in fall, your body needs to heated up more than summer. But at the same time, fall has less rain than summer which cause your breath in too much dry air. So dry air on the top of heated up body means you can be very easy over heated.
I think I am over heated now....My tongue hurts from last week. It was on the left side and changed to my right side yesterday. And I do see little red dots on my tongue and the yellow coating. Today, I was tired after work even I didn't do nothing at work. And everything happened at work angered me! I am pretty sure I am over heated. I tried to clam down after got home, took hot shower and relaxed which helped a lot. I also ate a lot of vegetable and drank a lot of water. I think my body will go back to normal soon.
It might be the changing of weather, might be it is that time of the month or just might be the moon. I feel uneasy from last week. Nothing is going bad but also not great either. Well, let's blame the weather and the sun will always come back on!
