  • 2. Geographic Tongue Is A SymptomNot A Disease  When you were told that you had geographic tongue you will also have been told that it is totally harmless, there is no cure and it may or may not go away on its own.  Great!  But you don’t want your tongue to have bald patches, white rings, cracks or any of the other symptoms no matter how ‘harmless’ they are.  Your tongue is trying to tell you something  Geographic tongue won’t kill you but it is telling you that something is not quite right.  Your body, for any of a number of reasons, is not getting the nutrition it needs and that is manifesting itself in the state of your tongue.  Correct that problem and your tongue will be back to normal.  So how has this happened in the first place?
  • 3. How Geographic Tongue Occurs  Your tongue is a very important indicator of the state of your general health.  So it’s pretty unhelpful to be told not to worry when you can clearly see it’s in a right old mess.  Your body is repairing and replacing itself all the time using vitamins and minerals. It concentrates on the more important organs first such as your brain. Your tongue gets the left-overs.  The surface of your tongue replaces itself every 7 to 10 days. If your body hasn’t got the vitamins and minerals it needs to do the job it does the best it can – resulting in bald patches, white rings, cracks and a whole host of other symptoms.  For example, the bald patches occur because papillae, which get worn down and scrubbed off, can’t be replaced quickly enough by your body without the necessary nutrition.
  • 4. What Are The Causes OfGeographic Tongue?  Vitamin and/or mineral deficiency – caused by not taking in enough vitamins or minerals in your food or as supplements.  Allergies to various foods which trigger a reaction in your body and interfere with your ability to process vitamins and minerals.  Allergies to chemicals found in household products. These have the same general effect.  Problems with absorbing vitamins and minerals even though your intake is high enough. This can be due to digestive problems or can be hereditary. Something can be done about both problems. By the way, even if you have been told that your geographic tongue is hereditary you can still get rid of it.  The health of your intestines. If the flora here are out of balance this will affect your overall digestive system and your tongue. Sort this out and your geographic tongue will be no more.  So what is causing your geographic tongue?
