Thank you Earth Clinic and thank you Yaakova for this post!! I came to this website after miserably enduring about 2 weeks of an inflamed, bright red and cracked tongue. It was awful by day but at night the dryness was terrible and preventing sound sleep.
Yesterday, I tried this recommendation with a large mug of green tea, ACV and 2 drops of Lugol's Solution 2% plus honey. There was immediate relief! PTL!! So I continued to sip, swish and swallow. The irritation was cut in half and I slept a little better last night. Today I am continuing this treatment and experiencing immediate relief again. Hoping for a complete cure!
Hope this information helps someone else!

I've been a big fan of Earth Clinic for many years and had much success with many of the posted remedies for different ailments (I have type 2 diabetes and HBP).
After a recent round of antibiotics for a upper respiratory infection left a nasty white coating on my tongue, I drank the following: 8 oz cup hot tea (I used decaf Earl Gray), 1 tbs of ACV with honey to taste along with 1 drop of Lugol's with my breakfast. By the end of first evening, most of the white coating was gone, by the end of my second day, my tongue was back to normal, no more white stuff! I am so amazed that something so simple cleared up my nasty tongue so quickly!
I can't say enough good things about Earth Clinic! I love this site, thank to all for your contributions and advice!
