Re: White tongue
A Whooooooooooooooole other explanation for white tongue is yeast infection and too much sugar in diet.... which according to some can mean 'any.' My tongue was called a candida tongue this evening at a health food store... I got just a few things to try, did not spend a treasury to throw at it.. but if so, there is a rather draconian diet in store. (Very little starches, carbs, above all no sugar in anything)
Interestingly they also said, it is from acid, but acid as a product of the candida. The gal I spoke with also suggested that the reason I get such releif from a Vindaloo (love curry and there is no problem with LPR or reflux) is the candida doesn't know what to do with really spicy stuff. Not that I am encouraging you to eat a known trigger food for you, but if you don't know it to be, see how you fare with some very hot Indian food.... I find it also does a job on my tongue...
