If you see a rosy pink tongue, you are looking good. That pink screams health. If it show patches of red, white, blisters, brown, black or yellow, there is trouble brewing. Take note because a sick tongue did not happen casually and it has a definite message for you. It is telling you that you are sick and although you may not feel sick, your body will falter at some point without care.
These are not conditions that need brushing or cleaning of the tongue. These are signs of illness that cannot be cleaned, brushed or scraped away.
The tongue shown above is from a woman experiencing several symptoms of illness. She is at a lost to find the cause and wonders why her hand joints swell and why she is so lethargic. She complains of weight gain, loss of energy, anxiety and exhaustion. Doctors have told her she just has arthritis and offered drugs which she refuses. As far as the weight gain and lethargy, the diagnosis is just "signs of aging".
Just for kicks, I said, "let's see your tongue." When I yelped audibly, she said, "Oh it's been this way for years." That may be, but it is writing on the wall.
