I have a recurring problem with my tongue that comes up every time I start to get a bit run down. The tip and front part feels over- sensitive, and hurts almost like I've burnt it on something hot, which I haven't. I can also get ulcers (canker... (more)

What you described - it happens to my tongue when I have food that contains too much MSG. Glugging water throughout the day usually solves the problem in one to two days.

Do you have a nearby ND (Naturopathic Doctor) you can see?

I am sure a lot of you have heard about the Buteyko breathing method. There is a proper way to rest your tongue and to swallow properly. Apparently children who grow up doing it the wrong way, develop narrow palates and eventually need... (more)

I used to have braces years back and a retainer. It was stage 1, and I was supposed to get more but didn't. I remember my dentist telling me I have an overbite because of the placement of my tongue. That's why I had a weird poky thing on the back... (more)

Okay so I've noticed every time I eat meat, my tongue is a white-ish grey, no matter how many times I brush it, it stays like that for at least two days. In contrast, on days where I just eat vegetables, avocados, berries, and starchy veggies like... (more)

Intesting. Are you sure you're drinking enough water/aren't dehydrated? That oculd be the culprit, and hopefully it is. As to your question "is it okay to cut out all meat only have it once in a while?" My own opininion is yes, it is. I'm... (more)

Recently, I've woken up with a nasty white, coated tongue, the stuff on it, is the consistency of almost cream cheese. Scraping the stuff off with my teeth, I've also noticed a bit of gum bleeding. I'm normally VLC, with a little bit of carbs a... (more)

I honestly don't think it's an infection, but likely a reaction to something you're eating or some detox. I had cfs and my tongue was always coated. As I changed many things, it became clear, but it still coats if I have tea. I would check it... (more)

I've been to an ENT, 2 family doctors and a dentist. They said it's nothing much (although I did get prescribed nystatin - did nothing). But I'm not satisfied with having a yellow tongue!! Here's a picture: http://imgur.com/6v77c Has anyone... (more)

I used to have an abundance of "yellow" on the back of my tongue like you. About 5 years ago, I incorporated a gentle (albeit plastic) tongue scraper into my daily routine (alongside brushing and flossing). The yellow stopped coming back after... (more)

Ah stainless! I have always used plastic ones. Guess I should upgrade. I still use rinses but I think the tongue scraping is a very good thing. Disgusting but very good.

Does anyone know why this might be? The tip of my tongue is normal color but I just noticed today that I got a layer of yellow stuff at the back. Now that i've identified it I'm going to try to gurgle salt water 2-3x per day. Might try a... (more)

Lately I've been buying beef tongue, boiling it up and eating it slowly with mustard, yum. Is it a good organ meat? A super organ meat? An average organ meat? thanks

It's just a muscle that gets lots of work, doesn't qualify as an organ. Has a nutrient profile that matches other muscle meats except it's higher in connective tissue which is a plus. I like to prepare tongue by pressure cooking it in aromatics... (more)

For the last two weeks,I have had stomach pains. After brushing my teeth I noticed that my tongue had cracks, which I never noticed before. Is there any correlation? Can I have a fungal infection?

My tongue was always an icky white! Thrush, maybe? Now it's a pretty newborn Persian kitten pink. Anyone else get a fresh baby tongue after going paleo?

Umm... ok. Here you go! To me, pork offal isn't too far off from beef in flavour so you can definitely blend with beef products if you wanted. Liver! Grind up and add to meatballs or burgers. Fried with onions and bacon - for a milder flavour you... (more)
