Have You Checked Your Tongue Lately?

Have you looked in the mirror lately and stuck out your tongue? What color is it??
I know... sounds weird but your tongue is a great indicator of what is going on inside your body.

A bright redish color may indicate that your insides are inflamed and you are needing to cool down. Maybe not just food wise cool down but maybe slow down in life too. If you've been feeling irritated, agitated or angry it might be time to change up your diet as something is not agreeing with you. Most often when I see that clients are a redish color I notice they've also been having too many spicy foods and consuming too many foods that they have a sensitivity/allergic too which causes a disturbance in their digestion tract. The coating of your tongue can indicate different situations in the body as well. A whitish coating on your tongue can indicate that your body isn't properly digesting food.

A healthy tongue is a light pinkish color, has a light clear coating, is moist and is able to move freely (not swollen). To keep a healthy tongue and body I recommend cleaning your tongue daily. This removes the toxins that have built up your tongue from the day and night. You can purchase a tongue scraper from most pharmacies or I recently learned that you can use the edge of spoon. It is important to scrape from the back of the tongue forward and do not scrape too hard (be nice to your tongue).

Keep those tongues healthy and CLEAN !
