In this paper, we have developed a tongue diagnosis system using fuzzy rules. A healthy person's tongue is red in color and has less tongue coating. However, when a person suffers from a disease, the color of their tongue changes from red to white, blue, or black. Therefore, it can analyze patient's health if analyze color and coated tongue of tongue. Medical diagnosis system can automatically determines the symptoms of the disease of a patient and their and calculate the optimal acupuncture time on the basis of the patient's physical conditions, illness conditions, and age from any place and at any time. The computer simulation results have shown that electro-acupuncture administered by using the medical diagnosis system developed in this study is more effective than the conventional method.
