Re: White coating on tongue

A white, coated tongue is a sign and symptom of what doctors call Oral Thrush.
Candidiasis of the mouth and throat, also known as a "thrush" or oropharyngeal candidiasis (OPC), is a fungal infection that occurs when there is overgrowth of fungus called Candida.
People with white tongues may have painless, white patches in their mouths and throats. If you have the fungal overgrowth in your esophagus, symptoms may include pain and difficulty in swallowing. It is also possible that you may be able to cough up white curds which are probably part of these patches located in your esophagus.

When the candida yeast gets out of control, it morphs into a mycelial fungal form, becomes invasive and grows rhizoids which then burrow into our intestinal wall. These rhizoids leave microscopic holes in the intestinal wall which allows toxins in the form of undigested food particles, bacteria and yeast into our blood stream. When this condition occurs the overgrowth is called Candidiasis or a systemic yeast infection. One indication of a systemic yeast infection is oral thrush or a white coated tongue. The toxins that the yeast puts into our system are responsible for the varying conditions that each individual experiences.
