These two forms of diagnosis, by sound and odor, reveal precise information on the individuals state of health.
They can be used to confirm and supplement information gained by visual diagnosis.
In addition to these basic methods of analysis, practically any aspect of individual expression-physical, emotional/mental and spiritual- can be used to evaluate basic strengths and weaknesses, past way of life, present state of health, and future expectations.
All that is needed is a dynamic understanding of the principles of yin and yang, a balanced condition, experience, and reflection on the relationship of the individual with the larger self. This includes environmental conditions, social influences, and ancestral background.
A dynamic understanding of these factors develop our intuition, or consciousness, which is far more perceptive than any machine, no matter how complex and technologically advanced it may be.
Sound and Odor self
Question: Body odor with a sweet tinge to it?
Which internal organ does that indicate needs attention?
Spleen / stomach
Diagnosis by Odor
Within the category of listening diagnosis Oriental practitioners included the diagnostic technique that uses the sense of smell.
A disorder with either member of an organ pair will often generate a particular telltale odor. the solid, physically yang organs are considered to be the source of these specific smells.
However, the hollow, structurally yin, partner organ will be affected whenever imbalances develop within its complementary partner.
The correlation between the organs and their related odors is listed in the following table:

Using deodorant does one thing only- it masks your health disorders and allows the deterioration in your health to continue. Don't shoot the messenger.
Those people who have good health and good bowel movements daily, don't have a problem with body odor.
I had to use deodorant for over 20 years. Since doing the 7 Day Wonder Freedom Cleansing program I have had no more need for deodorant.
Deodorant and other fragrant alternatives mask the bad body odor problem, thereby further complicating the real present and future dangers!
Bad body odor is a clear and immediate sign that internally you need to get your health in order. Basically it is a red flag telling you that you need to clean out and clean up your act, eating right just isn't enough.
Diagnosis by Listening
Diagnosing an individual through the sense of sound includes two complementary aspects.
The first more yang method is by direct questioning to gain information about the symptoms and general condition. As the same time, one needs to pay attention to the patient's manner of speaking. Is the individual bright and cheerful, confident and optimistic, depressed, fearful, hesitant. These and similar characteristics provides clues to the individual's strengths and weaknesses, and to the nature of the particular problem that prompted him to seek help.
The second, more yin method involves assessing the quality of the patient's voice. From this alone, a skilled practitioner can determine not only the cause of a problem but an individual's overall state of mental and physical health.
Listening diagnosis is based on the same principles as visual diagnosis. The difference being that listening deals with a different set of vibrations, or a different type of chee. Visual diagnosis uses light, while listening diagnosis uses the vibration of sound.
The application of this technique is based on the polar relationship between the paired complementary internal organs, which tells us that if there is a problem with one organ in the pair, the other organ will also be affected:
We can also list distinct "voices" each of which relates to one of the five organ pairs. If one of these voices is characteristic of an individual's speech we can suspect an imbalance in the energy of the related organ pair and meridians. By way of review these correlation's are as follows:
