Thanks for tuning in. Ive got a frequently
asked question here. What is a good remedy for Candida on the tongue? How do I get my
tongue all clean? How do I get all the film off my tongue? Its a question many people
ask me when they come to see me with a Candida infection. How they can get their breath smelling
sweet. How they can get their tongue looking nice and pink and clean.
Its not really that difficult to explain how to do that. But what I want you to try to
understand is the way to get rid of this coating on the tongue and how to get the tongue pink
is to think about the tongue as being the beginning or the entry of the digestive system
because its really a part of your digestive system. So to get the tongue looking nice
and clean, you really want to get your digestive system clean.
Its quite a silly idea to think if you just focus on the tongue and clean that maybe with
a toothbrush or taking some antifungal drugs or something that youll clean up the tongue.
You wont because the problem lies further down in the gut. Thats one thing I want to
clear up right from the start. You need to get your digestive system all clean and sorted.
You need to get the balance back with the beneficial bacteria.
Generally, when youve got a coating on the tongue, it means that youve got dysbiosis
or poor bowel flora. The further down the back of the tongue the coating, the more likelihood
its going to be the large intestine. The more towards the center of the tongue, the more
likely its going to be the small intestine. Anything on the tip of the tongue usually
is going to mean the stomachs got a problem. On the sides of the tongue, generally means
the liver has got a problem. So if your liver is a bit fatty or not really healthy, youll
have sort of scalloped edges. Go to the mirror and have a look at your tongue, poke it out
and have a look at the different colors on the tongue and how far the color is situated
back. Heavier coatings usually mean more of a problem. People with a big heavy coating
often have a lot of gas and bloating to go along with it as well.
Lets give you a couple of tips now on really how to clear this sort of thing. One thing
that you want to try to do is start to eat the beneficial foods, foods that are going
to help to clean the digestive system up. Cultured and fermented foods. You will have
heard about all these kind of diets like a body ecology diet. Theres many different types
of diets like that. These sorts of diets really focus on wanting you to eat more foods like
kefir and yogurt and sauerkraut and kimchee. These are foods that have been cultured or
fermented like sauerkraut. Foods that are rich in lactic acid. Lactic acid has a very
good cleansing effect on the gut and it promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria, which really
help to clean the tongue up. Theres nothing wrong with giving the tongue
a bit of a scrub with a toothbrush. You can even get a toothbrush when you reverse it;
its got sort of ripples on the one side where you can actually rub it over the tongue. Thats
going to stimulate the digestive system a little bit like when you stimulate the different
points on the hand or the feet like reflexology. Youll stimulate the corresponding body parts.
I believe that the tongue is the same. If you stimulate the tongue, you stimulate the
bowel. And also its good for constipation to stimulate the tongue.
A little bit of apple cider vinegar, if you get an organic one, in water, rinse the mouth
with that once or twice per day. Lemon juice on the tongue has a good cleansing effect.
A couple of drops of water-soluble or just plain tea tree oil on your toothbrush. Brush
your teeth with that, but also brush the tongue lightly with the tea tree oil. Thats going
to have a cleansing effect. There are different antifungal herbs you can
get like calendula. Calendula is an herb that is an antifungal. Rinsing your mouth with
a bit of water and calendula will help to clear anything on the inside. A couple of
drops of grapefruit seed extract in a little bit of lemon juice, rinsing your mouth thoroughly
with that. Oil pulling. You may want to look up some YouTube videos on oil pulling because
oil pulling with coconut oil has a nice way of keeping the tongue and gums all clean there
as well. Digestive enzymes particularly taken for the
stomach and pancreas will help clear the tongue as well. Avoiding junk and take away food,
alcohol, soda drinks and sugar. Thats going to help significantly get the tongue nice
and pink again. Chewing food properly, another very beneficial thing you can do.
So theres a couple of hints and tips on how you can keep the tongue clean, but the easiest
thing to remember is if you eat clean, youre going to feel clean. Your tongue is going
to be clean. If you eat crap, your tongue will look like crap. Its as simple as that.
Thanks for tuning in.
