What Does The Tongue Say About Someone’s Health?

Aug 28, 2019 | Blog

In a nutshell, the tongue provides a glimpse of someone’s overall health. The texture, color, size, coating and shape are indicators of poor or good health. Medical professionals use this as a guide to begin their diagnosis process. A healthy, normal tongue will be pink in color, normal in size as it relates to each person’s mouth and has a very light and thin white coating. Redness, swelling, a thick coat and a rough texture all indicate possible ailments that may need addressing.

Key Takeaways:

    • If the tongue is purple, that could indicate a problem with the circulatory system.
    • A thin coating on the tongue is normal, but a thick coating could mean someone is having issues with gut health.
    • If someone sees a sore or lump on one side of the tongue, get this checked out by a doctor as it could be a sign of cancer.
