Lip Color Lips with a uniform pink color reflect a healthy, well-functioning digestive system. While lips that are pale, whitish or even bluish in color may indicate anemia, a circulation problem or a “cold” or deficiency condition as we see in the following photos:
45. These lips vary significantly in both size and color indicating digestive problems. Zoom in on the middle of the deeply cracked lower lower lip; its raw-looking spot suggests localized inflammation of the small intestine. Note also the fuzzy border of the upper lip.
46. The cold-looking purplish upper lip of this client represents “frozen” digestive energy. Her symptoms included bloating, weak immunity and being “tired to the bone.”
47. Here’s another example of a diet that had, for this woman’s condition, too many salads, packaged snack foods, raw fruits and juices and chilled beverages. The result an upper lip that looks frostbitten. Also note the very rim of her upper lip is darker than the lip itself; an indicator of adrenal exhaustion.
74 & 75. Bill said “Enough!” to the meds that didn’t resolve his chronic eczema and instead changed his diet. Compare just his lips in the before and 30-days after photos as a measure of his regained digestive health. As Bill’s new diet is easy to assimilate, toxins are no longer sloughed off through his skin as eczema. A host of other nagging problems are also receding and he is delighting with renewed energy and wellbeing.
Testimonials from Readers
The most unexpected benefit is how QUICKLY it began to work—within three days I felt so much better and started to enjoy my meals the way I used to as a child. The biggest change in my face is in my lips—they have COLOR! Who needs lipstick? Tatjana, Colorado
One of the important things I learned from you is to pay attention to what my body is saying. For example, I hadn’t connected waking up with puffy eyes and not having an appetite with my digestion. It’s just the way I’ve always been. Now, I see that it’s my body trying to tell me something and I know how to proceed! Lisa, California
I cut out dairy, and then I put it back in to see if there would be a difference in my face and sinus congestion. You’re right, you saw it in my face and it’s drastic! I’m allergic to dairy. Sarah, NH
I used to wake up with intense pain in my stomach. Now, that pain is gone—unless I go off the diet, in which case there I am again, waking up in the middle of the night and like clockwork, once again, the skin above my lip gets all red and chapped. Janet, Wales
As you suggested, the rosacea-like little red dots under my right eye get worse when I eat wheat. So I do my best to go without it and it’s really hard. But I’m working at it. Alice, AR
I believe that your analysis of my health from looking at my face was correct and I have taken several corrective steps based on it. I am feeling better, seeing changes and I thank you for your assistance. Richard, NM
