White Coating, Burning, and Cravings
Dear Ted, I came across the earth clinic web site, that I have read with great Gusto!! Your replies have got me started in a healing Journey that NO AMOUNT of medical doctors could do. I recently had a baby who will be 5 months soon. During my pregnancy I started having this awful strong metallic taste (with a thick white coating) on my tongue. This taste eventually turned into what I was told is now called Burning Tongue syndrome. My sodium is border line low, and crave SALT and beer a lot.. I am not a drinker, so I found this beer craving very ODD for me. My calcium is also border line low, and looks like I may have low B6, but every thing else looks ok. Anyway after many docs I found a pretty OK ENT who actually listened too me, and he told me I had Acid reflux, even though I did even feel like I had this issue. He prescribed pepcid for me.. the nice thing was after 13 months of not being able too scrape off this white coating, I was finally able too scrape it off (after only one day of using pepcid), and my tongue is now 90% pink again. How ever this darn burning is still there. I do have Hashimoto Thyroiditis, and a compromised immune system. I found your ACV recipe and I have too say.. OMG.. this is awesome. I do the 2tblsp of ACV, ? tsp of baking soda, and 8 ounces of water. (twice daily). this totally takes away the burning I have been feeling in my tounge. However if I stop taking it, the burning returns along with the white coating. I have only been doing this 1.5 wks, but I was wondering.. does this sound Fungal too you? I love the results I get from the ACV recipe you speak about, but not too sure how long I should do this. I really do not believe that I have too LIVE with this issue. Can you please help educate me further on this issue.. Many, Many Thanks.
