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.

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?

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

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)

Please be very careful, it sounds as though you may be starting down the road to an anaphylactic reaction. In a more severe case your throat can swell shut, making it hard to breathe. For many people, each time they subject themselves to an... (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)

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)

It's impossible to tell from your photo because it's so blurry, but it's likely that you have a condition called hairy tongue. It's common and benign. It happens because tiny projections on the surface of the tongue grow longer than normal. ... (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.

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?

What? No! I feel gypped!! I still have to scrape every day or I get a (slight, but full tongue) coating. I've been solid primal/PHD for almost a year...what's the trick? No dairy?

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)
