I've had yeast on my tongue twice. A few years ago, after three months of consistent antibiotics for Lyme disease, the yeast was thick for almost a year. Drs. treated me with a purple liquid on my tongue for a month, I changed tooth brushes every brushing but it was relentless. I went to a dermatologist. He said it was acid reflux and treated me for that. It finally went away but occasionally returned lightly. After another round of antibiotics this month for bronchitis, the yeast was back. By now I knew it was the antibiotics.
One online link recommended oil of oregano and I bought it for $25.00. I'm sure it would take time, but I wanted something I could see a quick difference with. I searched online and found your site where people had used salt. I know salt is healing for sore throat, and I was desperate for anything. After the first brushing the yeast was gone. I did a second brushing and gargled with hot salt water. I was skeptical it would be back in the morning when it was always worst. But amazingly, it wasn't! I'm so thankful I came upon your article before I suffered a year again.
Thank you for your information. Peggy
Hey guys, take my word, salt works man! I went through a lot having a white coated tongue, believe me. I went to two urgent cares they all said I had oral thrush. Then I went to a real doctor, my primary doctor, and he said NO you do not have thrush! I was excited but still nervous. I went home and used salt right away and brushed the heck out of it and guess what guys... no more white tongue. Use salt - don't give up!!!
Mine was definitely from dehydration, weakened immune system, and I was on a long fast, never heard of White Tongue in my 53 years.
So I jumped on the computer and right away somebody wants to sell me something Trust the polls on this one SALT one treatment was all it took, I put it directly on my tongue and brushed lightly for about two minutes.
I have used the salt remedy and its working slowly but surely. I just got done using it and more of the white stuff is gone. I'm gonna do the salt remedy everyday until my tongues is spotless thanks.

I have tried doing this with table salt and seen a difference but still not perfection pink colour but I'm chuffed at how well it's made a difference, but I'm sure I did something wrong like the salt on the tongue I only had on for around 1 min because I was literally about to be sick, but nonetheless I'm about to do again thanks so much!
I just used the salt cure for white tongue. I used regular table salt for lack of sea salt. It worked great !! All skeptics, please try this remedy. It truly works. Thanks to all who provided a response. This is my first time ever providing a response because I am so pleased white the positive result. A pink tongue after brushing constantly with no results. use the salt, it again, works immediately.

I was so excited to try the salt remedy that everyone here mentioned to cure by white tongue, but I'm afraid it did not work...at all. I did the rinsing with sea salt, then sprinkled salt on my tongue and let it sit there for five minutes, then three times brushed my tongue with a sea salt/water paste, and it did nothing to remove the whiteness on my tongue and make it any pinker.

Salt cure for white coating on the tongue... I only noticed that I had this issue last week when a friend asked if I had eaten a banana or something. I decided to google and stumbled onto this site. I brushed with some salt and saw improvement and then read more. I coated my whole tongue with it and kept it on as long as possible (about four minutes). Worked like a charm. I am really delighted. But if you rinse with peroxide it will look like it came back for a minute lol.

Cure A White Coating on the Tongue:
Never felt compelled to leave feedback on a website before but was so impressed by how quickly salt worked ridding my tongue of its horrid white coating, I just had to! Saw this posted, and as it was such a cheap and easy remedy I thought should give it a go. Unfortunately the experience of spreading around 1/2 teaspoon salt on my tongue wasn't pleasant (could barely stop mysef from gagging) but after gargling with salt water, then brushing salt on my tongue with a toothbrush, it was gone! A normal healthy looking pink tongue at last! And long may it last..
I just tried the salt remedy and by go lie it worked liked a charm. I gargled with sea salt and water twice and then grinded the salt onto my brush and cleaned my tongue 3 times than gargled again. Tip for those that are having trouble reaching the back of your tongue, there is a round brush I use that is made specifically for cleaning the tongue and can be found at your local chain store it has a round head and a small hole in the middle, looks like a mini doughnut on a stick is the best way to describe it, it should be in the toothbrush isle. Well with this brush I was able to reach the back of my tongue with no problem.

Thank you Earth Clinic. Your information has helped another reader!!!. I suffered with white tongue for years and bad breath.I just read to try brushing my tongue with SEA-SALT and water and i flossed before i rinsed.IT WORKED! my tongue is pink again. I am home alone and can't wait to ask my family how my breath smells.my teeth feel nice and smooth as if they were polihed by a dentist.the taste in my mouth feels fresh- it never tasted this fresh before.but above all my tongue is pink. i read if your tongue is white you have bad breath and i also have tonsil stones. i also used sea-salt in my nettie pot and my sense of smell seams better.I am going to do it again before i go to bed. i have spent a fortune with the pharmacies, doctors, dentists, and herbalist and my mouth never felt this good. I was giving up hope that there was no cure and here it is right in my kitchen cabinet-something that i use every day. READERS THIS WORKS! now i am going to look up info for tonsil stones just in case.
white coating on tongue: I just tried the salt...it did work. I read it is a sign of an acidic pH in the body...I just experienced a bout of diverticulitos and from what I've learned so far...the acidic pH is the cause of all gastro intestinal ailments which include: IBS, Gastritis, Diverticulitos, Crohns, Colitus and many other ailments from Rheumatoid arthritis to Leukemia (Cancer Cells like bacteria will only thrive in an acidic enviroment) I suggest everyone who has a white coating on tongue to (which no matter what you've tried and had success with...it will return) Google acidic body pH levels.
I have had this coated tongue problem forever. I think I have tried it all and nothing seemed to work. I was just reading your postings and decided to take salt from my kitchen and give it a try. I took some salt in my toothbrush and brushed my tongue couple of times. VOILA...it worked. For the very first time i can see my pink tongue in the mirror. From now on i am going to leave a salt container in my bathroom. Thank you guys and God bless you all.

I must say that I have never replied to a website like this because I normally don't believe a lot of things people post like this Butttt.... I went ahead and tried what I was reading from 19 out of 21 people having a positive response. Now I'm posting and responding to all of you who had positive results and I have to say "THANKS to all of you" It really did work for me as you all stated.
The salt did have a burning or stinging sensation but fighting through it paid off big times. The gargling with salt water first a 1/2 cup of warm water adding a Tbl spoon of sea salt, spiting it out. Second covered my tongue with the sea salt letting it stay for about 5 minutes and Third brushing tongue several times over with the sea salt and wonders happen to my tongue, (Pinkness) I did brushed and added the Baking soda, sea salt and rinsing with the Hydrogen Peroxide for a fourth time. WOW!!! I kept on looking in the mirror AMAZED with the results! IT REALLY WORKED!(Cure A White Coating on the Tongue)
i was looking for a cure for coated tongue and the first posting i read was on salt, i tried it right away and it worked so simple really, i felt foolish because it is also so logical.
