Dr. Oz had a segment on Tongue Health: Hairy Tongue, Oral Cancer & Thrush
Is your tongue smooth, bumpy, dark or light in color? Did you know that your tongue can teach you about your health?
Bottom line is that your tongue should be fairly smooth, but with tiny bumps. So go ahead & check your tongue out (you know you want too)! So what is your conclusion? Do you have a healthy tongue or do we need to check a little further? So go back to the mirror, does your tongue have good color or is it pale looking? If this is the case then your body is suffering from a deficiency . It could be a deficiency of iron, vitamin B or B12. You could even have anemia. If part of your tongue has a white coating on it , it could be Thrush as well.
Some people suffer from allergic reactions that result in a small blister or multiple blisters in the mouth or on the tongue. Man, those things hurt! If those pesky little blisters (ulcers) don’t disappear after about 3 days, do yourself a favor and get your dentist to check it out and make sure there is nothing to be concerned over. Dr. Oz did say that usually Oral Cancer is on the sides or back and not on the top of the tongue.
My favorite part of Dr. Oz’s segment was on the Mighty Tongue Scraper! I’m a coffee drinker. Well, my favorite cup of Joe causes me to have that dark color on my tongue. Scrubbing with the tooth brush just doesn’t get it all. Well all I can say is “Thank you for the advise Dr. Oz” because I now have my faithful tool – the tongue scrapper!
Your tongue is the strongest muscle in the entire body so we need to take care of it.
