Yellow Tongue

Posted by Daniel on 04/23/2008

I was just wondering I have a yellow tongue onset it seems after I eat meats, etc and it stays there all the time. I brush it off' and it comes back on after I eat. It has been going on for a while. I also have excessive saliva forming. Do you have any suggestions. My stomach makes these noises when I seem to eat.

Dear Daniel:
I have yellow tongue also, but the cause is bacterial and fungal accumulation due to acidic saliva. This is often the best pH at which bacteria and funguss grows, and it came from my observation as to why the ocean's water are so sterile. It is sterile because the water's pH is 8. A human saliva's pH should equal to at least 7. Most times, whenever the saliva pH exists below 7, which often cases are 6.5 to 6.8, but I do see people with really bad breath and cavities with pH at about 5.5-6. Interestingly, certain chlorine, fluorine, aspartame, wheat, and milk seems to cause the pH to be acid, especially the milk which seems to add to the yellow coating. The pH of the urine is governed primarily by sodiium such as baking soda which sodium bicarbonate, that tends to control the alkalinity of the extracellular fluids, while on the other hand, the intracellular fluids of the cells or even the saliva is primarily controlled by both potassium and magnesium. But the natural
'antibiotic of the saliva's ability to rid of excess bacteria and fungus, are generally governmed by zinc and molybdenum. Molybdenum is primarily antifungal at least in the fungus like organism humans anyway, that might in excess give rise to candida.

The simplest possible remedy is 1/2 teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate and 1/8 teaspoon of potassium bicarbonate, in 1/2 glass of water taken usually twice a day, once in the morning and 1 hour before sleep, 2 hours and 3 times a day if you got astenia or sleeping problems of course. This is takenl slowly raise the salivary pH to alkalinity , within a couple of hours, and if brushing is done during those times, most of the yellow tongue is removed and can come back only very slowly. In general if I don't have much yellow tongue, I would just take 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda twice a day. Stomach upsets are very much due to excessive acidity along the esophagus, but also of eyes, nose, throat and ears, leading to long term sinusitus, but also bad breath, or mediciny breath, is the same. Certain fungus for example causes the body to produce certain chemical (possibly aldehydic in smell) leading to a mediciny breath. It takes only a couple of days to notice improvement in the
tongue problem, but in my case it is relatively quick, which takes only a couple of hours. That is because my body is usually alkaline anyway, but I didn't check my salvary pH to be acid. Obviously, the prime reason that we get cavities and yellow tongue is the sugar and the starches, but that's generally difficult to avoid. The second major cause is because 90% of all our foods are acid forming anyway, wheat and milk is one of the worse I seen yet, causing candida in some cases, usually cause the salivary pH to be acid. As such, taking baking soda and a small amount of potassium will do the job in most cases. But in the event it doesn't as well, then common deficiencies are magnesium, zinc and molybdenum supplements needed as being the other missing link. This doesn't happen often, but in event it does those are usually it.

Hi Ted I have tried the sodium bicarbonate and potassium bicarbonate, it has worked wonders. For the first time I feel like I'm actually getting somewhere but it is still not perfect. I am going to try the Zinc, Magnesium and molybdenum next but need to know what quantities of these you would recommend please.Thanks Dave

Do you just rinse/gargle with the mixture or actually drink it?
