7 Secret Things Your Tongue Is Trying to Tell You

7 Secret Things Your Tongue Is Trying to Tell You

Claremont Colonic Newsletter
Next time someone sticks their tongue out at you, grab it and take a good long look. Not only will this scare the heck out of them, you’ll be getting an up-close and personal transcript of their health records. A growing body of evidence suggests that not only are our tongues good for tasting, moving bits of food around our mouths and projecting our disdain or defiance to the world, they’re also an efficient way to get a heads-up on what’s ailing you.
There’s probably been at least a few occasions in your life where you’ve seen something weird on your tongue while brushing your teeth before bed. Chances are you took a good long look, thought “that’s weird, I wonder what caused that,” shrugged, and thought nothing more of it.

But far from being just an inconsequential curiosity, variations in the color and texture of your tongue can actually provide an important glimpse into the state of your health. When you know what to look for, these variations can provide a clue as to whether you’re healthy or suffering from a serious condition which needs to be addressed. Such conditions can include diabetes, vitamin deficiencies, tooth or gum decay, or yeast infections.

We’ve put together the seven most important signs to look out for on your tongue, and what they mean in tongue-talk.

1. Lumpy white tongue

If it looks like your tongue has a cottage cheese-like coating, you could have a yeast infection. This could mean anything from thrush to an oral yeast infection to a Candida albicans overgrowth in your gut.

Yeast infections or overgrowths are often linked to things like antibiotics, chronic stress, too much sugar and contraceptives. Antibiotics are particularly troublesome, with repeated use killing off not only the bad bacteria in your body, but the beneficial bacteria as well. With your beneficial bacteria populations wiped out in your gut and mouth, harmful bacteria can move in and take up residence.

Candida is perhaps the most famous opportunist following a bout of antibiotics, too much stress, an overload of sugar or continued contraceptive use. Candida is a naturally occurring yeast in your gut, and under normal conditions actually provides important functioning to your body like nutrient absorption and immune support. Antibiotics kill off bacteria but are often unable to affect candida, meaning it now has an expansive estate at its disposal to grow and put down roots throughout your gut. This results in autoimmune issues, constant sugar cravings, weight gain, hormonal imbalance and often a “cottage cheese tongue.”

2. Small white tongue patches

While we’re on the topic of weird white patterns on your tongue, keep your eye out for this one. Small white patches on the top or underside of your tongue could mean that something is directly irritating the inside of your mouth. These patches (provided they are painless) are caused by an excess growth of cells on your tongue and are often associated with smokers. If you find yourself within this group, look out! Those patches have a strong chance of developing into cancer. The solution? Stop smoking!

If you’re not a smoker, small white patches on your tongue could simply be due to your teeth rubbing against the surface of your tongue, or perhaps eating too much abrasive food like chips.

3. Bright red tongue

This one has probably got you worried, considering it looks like you’ve eaten a whole punnet of strawberries or perhaps five beets in a row. A glossy, bright red tongue often signifies a vitamin deficiency, in particular iron or vitamin B12. These two vitamins are not only essential for a range of healthy functions in your body, they’re also required for the maturation of papillae on your tongue. If you’re lacking in iron or B12, the loss of those papillae means your tongue takes on a smooth, almost glossy texture.

While you shouldn’t experience any pain or discomfort, severe iron or B12 deficiency and the resulting smoothness of the tongue can make eating hot or spicy foods miserable. Basically, if you’ve got a notably red, smooth tongue, consult your doctor or get a comprehensive blood test to see whether you’re vitamin deficient. Vegetarians are particularly at risk, as a lot of our vitamin B12 and iron intake comes from red meat.

4. Tongue cracks

If you’ve noticed an increasing amount of “wrinkles” or deep grooves on your tongue, don’t fret. These tongue wrinkles, which remind me a little of glacial crevasses, are usually just a manifestation of age. Like your skin, your tongue degrades with time, and this is simply it’s own way of showing that wear and tear.

That being said, things can get a little dicey is you don’t keep things clean inside your mouth. Those same benign fissures can easily develop a fungal infection if you don’t make oral hygiene a priority, which can then lead to bad breath, pain, and possibly a burning sensation. All the more reason to brush your teeth, floss and clean your tongue on a regular basis.

5. Tongue ulcers

We’ve all had them and everyone seems to have a different theory as to why they appear. Even the experts don’t know for sure what they are and what specifically causes canker sores. They suspect, however, that these little devils are viral in nature and have ties to elevated stress levels. I’ve also long held the opinion that they spring up on the tongue and cheeks after eating too much sour fruit, particularly citrus.

There are a few things you can do to treat tongue canker sores, like rubbing baking soda on the affected area or rinsing your mouth with salty water. Otherwise, they should be gone within two weeks — any longer and you may have a bigger problem.

6. Permanent tongue lesions

While we’re on the subject of weird bumps on your tongue, if you see one of these guys, take a quick trip down to the doctor. Different from canker-sores or ulcers in that they don’t go away after two weeks, they should be checked immediately. Even if you’re unsure of whether it’s a canker sore or a potentially carcinogenic lesion, it’s always best to err on the side of caution and get an expert opinion.

7. Black tongue fuzz

It sounds a trifle disgusting, and it’s significance is a little gross as well: a tongue with visible black or brown hairs (or “fuzz”) means your oral hygiene leaves a lot to be desired. While it suggests that you should ramp up your tooth brushing and mouth washing routine a bit, experts state that it isn’t a cause for concern in and of itself.

Other things which can cause a black and hairy tongue include smoking and drinking a lot of coffee or dark teas. These can cause the papillae on your tongue to grow bacteria, which create that discolored look and lead to bad breath or weird tastes. Ditch the smoking or excessive hot drinks and work on your oral hygiene routine and it should go away.

Third Death in U.S, 5 deaths in Canada Reported in Salmonella Outbreak Linked to Cantaloupe

Third Death in U.S, 5 deaths in Canada Reported in Salmonella Outbreak Linked to Cantaloupe

Claremont Colonic Newsletter
The CDC advises against eating any cantaloupe product that could be included in an ongoing recall.
An outbreak of salmonella tied to whole and pre-cut cantaloupe products continues to grow, and a third death has been reported in the US, according to the US Food and Drug Administration.

In an outbreak update Thursday, the FDA reports 230 cases of illness in 38 states, including the three deaths. Canada also has confirmed 129 salmonella cases, including five deaths, from six provinces. Most of those sickened are 5 and younger or over 65. Many attended some kind of group care, such as a nursing home or day care, according to the Public Health Agency of Canada.

The most recent illness in the outbreak began November 20, the FDA says.

The outbreak has been tied to cantaloupes grown in Mexico and sold under the Rudy and Malichita brands. The cut fruit products have been sold at Sprouts, Trader Joe’s, KwikTrip, RaceTrac, Aldi, Walmart and Vinyard.

“Do not eat pre-cut cantaloupes if you don’t know whether Malichita or Rudy brand cantaloupes were used,” the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has warned. “This includes cantaloupe chunks and fruit mixes with cantaloupes at restaurants and grocery stores.”

Anyone who has recalled fruit products at home should throw them away or return them to the store where you bought them, the CDC says. Make sure you wash any items or surfaces that have come into contact with the fruit using hot, soapy water. A dishwasher will also help get rid of the bacteria.

The CDC is also urging businesses not to sell the contaminated fruit and to wash and sanitize items that have come into contact with it.

Salmonella is a bacterium that can cause vomiting, diarrhea, stomach cramps and fever. Symptoms typically start six hours to six days after someone swallows the bacteria.

Get medical care right away if you think you have eaten some of this fruit and have a fever higher than 102, diarrhea that won’t go away, bloody diarrhea, vomiting that won’t stop or dehydration. Anyone can get sick with salmonella, but some people are more vulnerable to severe symptoms, including the elderly, pregnant people, children and those with underlying illnesses that weaken the immune system.

Salmonella infections are common. The bacteria causes about 1.35 million human infections and 26,5000 hospitalizations in the US every year, according to the CDC.

Such infections are also costly. Foodborne salmonella infections cost the US $4.1 billion annually, according to the US Department of Agriculture.

The CDC, the FDA and the Public Health Agency of Canada continue to investigate the outbreak to identify any other cantaloupe or fruit products that may be contaminated.

Most Americans Lose Sleep Due to ‘Digital Distractions.’ Experts Offer Tips to Help

Most Americans Lose Sleep Due to 'Digital Distractions.' Experts Offer Tips to Help

Claremont Colonic Newsletter
It has likely happened to everyone at some point: You are poised to go to sleep, but instead a “digital distraction” keeps you up hours later than you had planned.
“Bedtime procrastination is a common problem, as people often stay up later than intended while binge-watching a program or shopping online,” said sleep medicine physician Dr. Alexandre Abreu, a spokesperson for the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM).

“With so many digital distractions vying for our time, it can be tempting to watch one more episode or scroll through one more viral video, but anything that keeps us from getting the recommended seven hours of sleep each night can be harmful to overall health and well-being,” Abreu added in an AASM news release.

A recent AASM survey pinpointed the scope of the problem: Ninety-one percent of those surveyed said they have lost sleep because they stayed up past their bedtime to binge-watch a TV show. Meanwhile, 75 percent said browsing and buying online is also keeping them up at night.

The AASM offers the following guidance on how to keep digital disruptions at bay and sleep better in the process:

  • Disconnect from devices at night: Turn off all electronics at least 30 minutes to an hour before bedtime.
  • Leave your phone in another room: It’s tempting to go on your phone while in bed, so keep it in a separate room at night. If you use your phone for a morning alarm, consider an alarm clock instead.
  • Follow a relaxing nighttime routine: Take a warm bath or shower, read a book or do some journaling before bed.
  • Have a sleep schedule: Go to bed and get up at the same time on a regular basis. Don’t let online scrolling get in the way of precious hours of sleep.
  • Turn off push notifications: If you must have your phone in your bedroom at night, turn off push notifications and sound to avoid distracting alerts.
