“As a nutritionist, I believe that the white furry tongue and bad breath are caused by yeast, or candida, infestation. It is not contagious since these microbes are everywhere already and they only take over when the body is out of balance nutritionally. This happens when the diet favors the yeast microbes in the gastointestinal system over the beneficial bacteria there, most commonly known as being found in yogurts.
This happens when the diet is lacking in fiber, quality fatty acids, and B vitamins, or when the diet is too heavy on meats, refined carbs, sugars and sodas, and too light on fresh vegetables and fruits and alkalizing water. Both situations favor yeasts over beneficial bacteria. Eventually the yeasts inhabit the entire GI tract because digestion is compromised and the white furry tongue is caused by the yeasts – actually from the fungus family.
People who have bad breath and/or white furry tongue need to change their diets dramatically to overcome the condition. Most medical approaches do not include this kind of recommendation but there are some excellent sources on it and I have helped many clients with this problem. The leading book on the subject are The Yeast Connection by Dr. Crook“
The likelihood of having White Furry Tongue sometime in your life is high because of our lifestyles and diets. Simply put a white Furry Tongue is caused by a yeast overgrowth. The main causes of the changes which favor yeast overgrowth are:
* Antibiotic use (kills the healthy bacteria which compete with the yeast);
* Cortisone treatment (tends to acidify the tissues making them more conducive to yeast);
* The dietary imbalances as mentioned above
* A high consumption of carbohydrates (which are the main food for the yeast organisms);
