Mouth and throat diagnostics – a Normamed patent

Normamed is breaking new ground in gentle diagnostics. The traditional spectrum of examinations is being expanded. A new diagnostic component is Normamed’s patent-pending mouth and throat screening.


A result of many years of observation

During examinations, small changes in the oral mucosa are often observed in many patients in the mouth and throat area. Especially on the cheeks and on the palate as well as on the inside of the lower lip, elevations, “nubs”, “strokes”, reliefs or small injuries can be seen. These can be palpated with the tongue and can also be viewed through mirrors and documented with special cameras.

Simple observation of the healing process and aids in medication control

Normamed has comprehensive data from traditional western and traditional eastern medicine for diagnostics and a lot of information on disease progression. Within the framework of holistic diagnostics, doctors have succeeded in establishing a connection between changes in the oral mucosa and organ functions and have repeatedly observed it.

The results were and are evaluated in connection with other examinations. Thus first and still provisional components of a mouth-throat diagnosis could be developed. The functional disorders can be re-evaluated and the course of their healing can be monitored under on-going medication by means of mucosal observation.

The results would be evaluated in connection with other examinations. Mouth and throat diagnostics are continuously evaluated within the framework of studies.

What the characteristics of a mouth-throat anamnesis indicate

The characteristics shown in the following diagram are an example of complex perturbations. In this case, the mucous membrane changes are associated with an extensive disorder of the upper intestinal tract, which also manifests itself in soft bowel movements and diarrhoea.


The Normamed mouth and throat diagnostics: Changes in the mucous membrane of the cheeks, the inner lips, the palate and the gums (done by self-scanning with the tongue and visual inspection by the doctor). This provides tentative diagnoses, which are checked by further medical measures and are only meaningful in conjunction with other medical information about organ disorders when it comes to digestive disorders.

xxxxxx = mark, relief, “stroke line” in the cheeks

oooooo = “nubs” in the lower lip (different density and thickness)

vvvvvv = “shreds”, individual injuries in the palate

zzzzz = injuries to the gums of the last four teeth

O = punctiform injury (variable position)


Example: Disturbances of the gallbladder

An “elevation”, a “relief” in the oral mucosa or points, notches or simply a rough surface of the left cheek, for instance, often appears if, among other things, there are functional or other disorders of the gallbladder present.

If the characteristics appear in the left cheek, a treatment of the liver gall bladder functions should be considered in case of digestive problems, if the stroke line/relief appears in the right cheek at the same time, a treatment of the spleen function should also be considered. The vertical stroke line in the left cheek may also indicate the presence of “jellyfish” or gallbladder polyps, if other factors are present at the same time. Strong nubs in the lower lip alone also indicate an intestinal disorder, while injuries to the gums and “palate flakes” can indicate an additional complex organ dysfunction.


Not meant for medically unattended self-diagnosis!

In mouth and throat diagnostics, other factors for changes in the mucous membrane must first be excluded (such as tooth marks or injuries caused by mechanical causes). Only experienced diagnosticians can assess the oral mucosa changes in connection with physical changes and under consideration of other examinations with good medical expertise. Self diagnosing mouth and throat symptoms is therefore uncalled-for without a doctor or without medical instructions!

For instance, the described changes in gallbladder function often vary rapidly depending directly on the composition of the food as a decrease (indicates tolerance) or as an increase (indicates intolerance) in intensity and severity. If these changes in the mucous membrane are hardly noticeable or have disappeared completely, or if the food no longer influences them noticeably, then it is safe to say that the normal function of the gallbladder is restored.

The significance of mouth-throat diagnostics for the maintenance of the gallbladder

In no medical practice has there been a viable diagnosis for the many diseases of the bile – not even in traditional Chinese medicine, where the assessment is made by means of taking a pulse and visual inspection of the tongue together with the liver. In traditional western medicine, imaging (e.g. ultrasound) or surgery are the main techniques used anyway. However, in many cases only morphological (visible) disorders such as stones, sludge or semolina are recognisable and assessable.

The gallbladder is an important organ whose unconditional preservation is of great importance for intact digestion. This has a great influence on the spleen function and the immune system.

What matters here is:


Fine regulation of the complex digestive process requires an intact bile function.

Normamed has applied for an international patent for these findings in order to further develop them together with doctors, clinics and patients.
