Did you know that the tongue is like a barometer of your body’s health and performance? Your tongue’s shape, texture, coating, color, bumps, and indents can say something about your health without saying a word. Using the tongue to diagnose health problems is used by many doctors in the world. They see it as an effective way of spotting symptoms, too, and dental professionals check for signs of oral cancer during a routine checkup – which can have the appearance of ulcers, red areas, or white areas, most commonly found on the underside of the tongue and the floor of the mouth.
You should also know that the area at the back of tongue corresponds to your kidney and bladder. A thick yellow coating at the back of tongue may be a sign of impaired function in the intestines, bladder, or uterus. The very tip of the tongue reflects your heart health, where a bright red-tipped tongue can mean heart trouble, stress, and anxiety! The sides of the tongue show the state of the liver, while the center of the tongue is connected to the spleen. Well, our point is – if there is an unusual color, coating, or shape in a certain area, special attention should be paid to the corresponding organ system.
You should be very careful and don’t ignore these 9 warning signs and symptoms:
- Thin surface white layer, visible traces of teeth and a few red dots: lack of energy, which is the main cause for fatigue, poor appetite, and excessive sweating. This person is usually anxious and nervous.
- A thin yellow layer in the middle surrounded by the rest of the red surface of the tongue: it can be a sign of dehydration, oral thrush, or leukoplakia, which is an excessive growth of cells caused by smoking or other tongue irritants.
- A thick yellow coat in the back of your tongue: you should be very careful because this might be an early sign of a urinary tract infection while the same coat on the front section of your tongue is more likely an upper respiratory issue.
- Black spots on a purple surface: it could mean that fluids and blood are not circulating properly. This lack of circulation quickly may translate into lethargy and poor emotional health. It some cases, it can lead to depression. A purple tongue is also seen in those with high cholesterol and subsequent heart problems, as well as chronic bronchitis, which adversely affects the airwaves bringing oxygen into the bloodstream.
- A thin white layer and a red tip of the tongue: this symptom reveals that your organism is exposed to constant stress, caused by the unstable emotional state. The energy in the body is accumulated in the nodes and it’s the main cause of inflammation.
- Red tongue with thick yellow layers in the middle of the surface: it will tell you that there is heat in your bodies such as a fever or a hormonal imbalance that is leading to hot flashes or temperature changes. Stress can also make the tongue red.
- A thick white coating: it tells us again there is cold in your body and may be responsible for poor circulation in your extremities, abdominal pain and cramping, and premenstrual pain.
- Cracks on a red surface of the tongue: it indicates a fungal infection in the body, accompanied by night sweats, insomnia, and irritations.
- The tongue which surface is pale and without deposits: is a sign of a deficiency or a lack of energy. This is common in women immediately following their menstrual cycle or in both sexes following a rigorous training cycle or long distance race. This is also common with anemia or after a long-standing disease where the body had to tap into its reserves to fight itself back to health. Your immune system is weak here and needs a boost.
