My tongue is white during the day, more solidly toward the back, and starts to fade into pink as it reaches the front. It takes on the color of whatever food I eat. For example, if I eat kale, my tongue will turn green and stay like that for a while.
In the morning, I always wake up with a dry tongue, and the tongue is yellowish, tinted green. Sometimes my tongue has tiny little grooves in it.
It would appear, from what I have read online, that what is on my tongue is NOT thrush. In the photos I've seen of thrush, the white part looks raised, thicker, and not uniform like what my tongue is presenting.
My main question is:
Is what's on my tongue Candida, or a symptom of a sluggish liver, gallbladder or spleen? And if so, do I need to concentrate on trying to get rid of it as well as get rid of the underlying cause?
