Cure for Acid Reflux Orange Tongue
If your orange tongue is caused by acid indigestion or heartburn, the simplest remedy is take some sort of antacid like Alka-Seltzer, Maalox, Pepto-Bismol or Tums. This, along with brushing, will help resolve the symptoms.
To prevent any future occurrences, you should closely examine your diet and keep a food journal. A food journal such as the The Biggest Loser Food Journal on Amazon.com can help you figure out what foods cause your orange tongue. This will help you easily eliminate it. If you can’t find a specific food, reduce your intake of acidic foods and research the feasibility of a low-acid diet such as The Gracie Diet, The Fat Burning Furnace or The Truth About Abs. Before you start any exercise program, please consult with your doctor.
Cure for Antibiotic Related Orange Tongue
If your orange tongue is caused by a microorganism imbalance due to the recent use of antibiotics, this can be remedied by simply restoring balance. This can be done by monitoring your diet and adding a few supplements to encourage a rebalance of your body’s beneficial bacteria.
I recommend taking a probiotic such as Enzymatic Therapy Acidophilus Pearls with food twice daily, unless specified otherwise on the label. These pills will help plant new colonies of bacteria that will restore the balance inside your mouth and your gut. You can, and should, supplement this crucial first step by eating Yogurt such as Fage Total Greek Yogurt or Chobani Non Fat Vanilla Greek Yogurt daily. Just leave it in your mouth for a few seconds before you swallow it.
The next step is taking anti-fungal herbs. Garlic and Oregano are wonderful at keeping your bacterial levels in balance by keeping yeasts, fungus and viruses under control. You can also supplement with the amino acid L-Lysine, which is a great healer. I recommend Source Naturals L-Lysine, Kyolic Formula 100 Garlic Extract and Source Naturals Wellness Oil of Oregano as directed on the label.
Herbal Tea’s that contain lemongrass are also great at re-balancing your mouth. It is good to have a cup in between meals and hold it on your tongue for a bit before I swallow it. Just don’t add any honey, sugar or milk!
Sugar’s and yeasts are the worst thing you can eat with an orange tongue. Sugar comes in many forms, not just what you add to your coffee. Keep away from dairy (besides yogurt, kafir or skyr), soda, alcohol (especially beer), candy and fruits. These foods, along with enriched wheat or bleached wheat found in many breads are the foods of choice for the organisms that keep you out of balance, and keep your tongue orange. With the exception of potatoes, bananas, yucca, plantains and oatmeal, keep the sweets and complex carbohydrates at bay.
If you follow this regiment, you can expect everything to heal up anywhere from 3-14 days.
