I have had a coated and geographic tongue since a child. Look, the fact its, I think most of people in this forum do HAVE candida, its very easy to spot. Got dandruff? Got eczema? Got cracked, swollen, coated tongue? Depression? Weakness? Mental problems? Your stomach speak, gurgles, roares? Stools dont look normal? Got leaky gut? Everyone I know that thought he had candida and tested discovered he had yeast overgrowth.
