I started using turmeric last Friday and boy what a difference in my tongue in just 7 days. I have been using one teaspoon of turmeric in lukewarm water three times a day. Each morning I wake up and look forward to seeing my tongue in the mirror. Each day the white coating on the tongue is less and less. I saw it is about 50% gone. What is left is much thinner. I am also using Manuka Honey. Thanks for the suggestion of using the turmeric. So far the die off has been minimal but I have noticed more itching and aching.
