Okay so get back to the mirror... do you have horizontal racks, small cracks/grooves... this can be called geographic tongue. This can be a sign of mal-absorption, especially of the B vitamins. B vitamins give us our energy. This too has a few remedies. Add a B-complex vitamin, take a digestive enzyme supplement, take echinacea tincture, try peppermint tea, nettle tea can help to fortify the body with B vitamins, try 1 oz aloe vera juice before each meal.
How about a thick yellow coating? If you have this, you may have excess heat in your stomach and intestines. This means that you probably don't have the healthy bacteria in your digestive tract that you need. What to do, what to do? Well start by adding 1 oz of aloe vera juice before your meals, try to take it easy (you may be overworking yourself), or try some chamomile tea.
Have a red tip on the tongue? This can indicate emotional upset of stress. This could be present stresses, or something from the past you are holding onto. Well this one is not as easy, first try to deal with the stress, siberian ginseng and rhodiola are helpful for stress. You may also want to look into the book "Feelings Buried Alive Never Die" by Carol Trueman. This is a fantastic book about dealing with emotional stress. In addition to how to release this and also how different emotions can present in our bodies when not properly dealt with. The other book I would recommend for this is "You Can Heal Your Life" by Louise Hays. Another fantastic book explaining similar things on how to deal with emotional stresss, and what it can to do our bodies.
This is all I know about the tongue and how you can learn about your body by checking it out. Hope this has been as interesting and fun for you as it was for me!
