How Healthy Are You? Your Tongue Says It All.
You might be one of those people who have developed white buildup on your tongue, and you do not know how it came about, or how to deal with it. A number of factors can cause a white tongue to appear, and they include:
a) Dehydration. This can be due to lack of taking water or taking caffeinated drinks that dehydrate the body.
b) Thrush. It is a fungal disease caused by the overgrowth of the Candida organism on the tongue. Long use of antibiotics also causes it.
c) Body pH imbalance. This is so in carb addict where the body's pH becomes acidic leading to white film on the tongue.
d) Chronic diseases such as liver failure, renal failure may cause a white tongue.
The Natural remedies for a white tongue are as follows:
1) Drinking a lot of water daily ensures that the body is hydrated. Therefore, this means that the tongue does not become dry and no inflammations occur on the surface of the tongue. When one is dehydrated, food particles stick to the tongue forming a white coating on the tongue. Drinking a lot of water ensures that this is avoided. Depending of your weight, I usually recommend to drink at least 1 litre of pure water for every 20 kilos. So for example, for someone with a weight of 55 kilos, I would recommend this person to drink at least 2.5 litres of pure water per day.
2) Dental Health
This is the most important remedy for a white tongue, which is characteristic of the white stuff on your tongue. Dental hygiene ensures that no bacteria's can form a coating on the tongue. Brushing, scraping and flossing helps achieve this. The food particles, which would cause the white coating on the tongue, are removed when person brushes or scraps their tongue. The Sulfur causing compounds that cause halitosis also do not build up.
A person should brush their mouth at least twice a day. When brushing, the toothbrush should reach all corners of the mouth and the gums. This helps remove the bacteria found in the mouth. Using a scraper, the tongue should be scraped.
The following steps are followed when scraping the tongue in order to remove white buildup on your tongue:
• Take the two ends of the tongue scraper on both hands
• Stick your tongue out
• Reach the arch of the tongue scraper to the back of the tongue
• Scrape forward several times at the same time rinsing the white mucous off the scraper between several scrapings
• Once done, rinse the mouth
Once done with brushing and scraping, the person should floss. Flossing helps get the bacteria in between the teeth that brushing and scraping could not reach.
3) Avoid or reduce sugar in the diet
Since Candida feeds on sugar, avoiding sugary foods such as sweets and candy can starve the compounds that cause the thrush. Without the sugar, the thrush and the white buildup on your tongue cannot survive, and it eventually dies.
If you suffer from symptoms of white stuff on tongue and you need further support, feel free to book a face-to-face or remote appointment with me.
What is Chromo or Colour Therapy? A Brief History of Medicine’s Diversion from the Mind
Colour therapy is often associated, if at all, with our clothing but the effect of colours has historically gone far beyond such a surface approach. Chromotherapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine and then taken up by Western Medicine as a form of physiological and psychological treatment.
Like many modalities, chromotherapy has its roots in ancient observations and usages across various cultures spanning time. Colour has been investigated as medicine since 2000 BC. Phototherapy—light therapy—was practiced in ancient Egypt, Greece, China, and India. The Egyptians utilized sunlight as well as color for healing; Greeks used coloured minerals (crystals as we now call them), salves, and dyes as remedies; and the ancient Ayurvedic physician Charaka, who lived in the 6th Century BC, recommended sunlight for treating various ailments.
Edwin Babbitt was in fact among the pioneers of modern chromotherapy. According to Babbit’s research, “there is a unique color or energy vibration that either sedates or stimulates the stream of energy through a specific organ, causing a natural biochemical reaction.” The aim of chromotherapy is to be a complementary form of therapy in ailing the body and restoring its balanced function. His work on color healing, for the first time in history, proved to be comprehensive in taking both a physiological and a psychological approach.
This certainly pulled from the aforementioned ancient practises namely Ayurvedic Medicine, wherein each chakra energises and sustains certain organs. What Babbitt’s research posited is that “the balance of the seven chakras activates healing by transmitting energy to the electromagnetic field around the body.” He reiterates the Ayurvedic idea that the body has seven major energy centres known as chakras, each centres is responsive to a different colour. For instance, the chakra located at the sites of the major endocrine glands, corresponds to particular states of consciousness, personality types and endocrine secretions.
During the nineteenth century the emphasis in science was exclusively on matter rather than on energy. As medicine came under the umbrella of science, it focused too much on the material physical body, ignoring the mind. With the advances in physical medicine and treatments such as surgery and antiseptic, interest in healing with colors declined.
Yet, there was continuing interest, even from pioneers including Carl Jung who once stated, "Color is the key to subconscious." You should consider if there have been foods of a certain colour, texture, or flavour that you have been craving. It can be a surprising exploration of what they might be signalling.
