* There is a shaved patch at the back area of the tongue. The doctor asked if the patient had travelled to any Third World country and drank water there, or perhaps drank from a stream, and if she has any cramping. The patient said that she camps out and drinks from streams and after doing so she gets a general feeling of fatigue and weakness. * The shaved patch is a sign of parasites, or [[krumi]] as Ayurveda calls it. The doctor said that stream water and bad water from third World countries is usually infested with parasites, and that she may have some kind of intestinal parasite such as [[Giardia lamblia]]. The shaved area is placed at the back of the tongue which confirms the diagnoses, because the back area indicates the intestinal area. * Although the metabolism of the patient is a little off she did not gain much weight because of her [[prakruti]] which is [[Pitta]] primary and [[Vata]] secondary. If she was Pitta/[[Kapha]] for instance, she would be overweight.\\ \\
