Re: What Your Tongue is Trying to Tell You About Your Health

I can never see anything particular on my tongue. It just looks like a tongue. Guess that's a good thing, right? 😛

I have always had the ripples along the edges (unabsorbed nutrients, impressions of teeth).  I was told by a nutritionist that it represented a gunky spleen.

Hoosieroriginal, do you know of a remedy for  a gunky spleen?  Just curious.  My tongue has tooth imprints most of the time.

My tongue is very uneventful . . .  just a happy pink color . . . but thank you, @lolakimono for posting this . . .   as I have read many times, even years ago, about how significant the appearance of your tongue is in detecting issues to one's overall health.

Re: What Your Tongue is Trying to Tell You About Your Health

I have a geographic tongue and so it changes from day to day.  In addition, I have a long split down the middle.  As if someone tried to cut it in have, but didn't quite make the cute deep enough.  So, these charts mean nothing for me.
