Medical Palmistry: Your health in your hands
- Hits: 30134
Palmistry isn’t only about character analysis or fortune telling, it’s a powerful tool in preventing illness too. Lots of underlying health conditions show on the palm, months before they manifest as health problems. Always consult your physician and get a professional opinion about any suspected condition.
- The palm is a major area for scientific investigation – over 4,000 research papers have been published on aspects of the palm and health in the last 50 years.
- There is no relationship between the length of the lifeline and the length of your life – if yours is short, don’t worry!
- The palm lines aren’t fixed and will change as your health and your character changes.
- Some practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine use the palm to diagnose illness. There are many acupuncture points on the hands because many of the body’s energy meridians pass through them. Some reflexologists work on points on the palms as well as the feet.
The nails are an excellent indicator of your general physical condition, so let’s begin with them. If you find something wrong with a single nail, ignore it – you may have just injured the nail bed. Only if there’s a matching sign on three or more nails should you take action.
If you’re in optimum health, your nails will be pale rose–pink in colour, unmarked by ridges, white spots or grooves with a natural sheen.
