Over the centuries, Chinese diagnosis has developed an extremely sophisticated system of correspondences between outward signs and the internal organs.
Detecting internal conditions through external manifestations is the key to diagnosis in Chinese Medicine. This is based upon the theory that any internal conditions will be manifest externally. The concept of signs and symptoms in Chinese Medicine is broader than in western Medicine. It uses not only “symptoms and signs” but many other manifestations to form a picture of the disharmony present in a particular person.
According to this basic idea underlying Chinese diagnosis, practically everything, such as skin, complexion, bones, channels, smells, sounds, mental state, preferences, emotions, tongue, pulse, demeanour, body build, reflects the state of the internal organs and can be used in diagnosis.
Observation of the tongue is a pillar of diagnosis because it provides clearly visible clues to the patient’s disharmony. Tongue diagnosis is remarkably reliable: whenever there are conflicting manifestations in a complicated condition, the tongue nearly always reflects the basic and underlying pattern.
Observation of the tongue is based on four main items: the tongue body colour, the body shape, the coating and the moisture.
Various areas of the tongue reflect the state of the internal organs.

Dr. Bach believed that illness was the result of a conflict between the purposes of the soul and the personality's actions and outlook. This internal war, according to Bach, leads to negative moods and to "energy blocking", thought to cause a lack of "harmony", thus leading to physical diseases.
