• Why Does My Tongue Have Teeth Marks?


    Ever wonder why your tongue as teeth marks around the sides?


    Teeth marks on the sides of your tongue is an indication of Spleen deficiency/nutritional deficiency.  It is very likely that your digestion is impaired and your body is having difficulties absorbing nutrients from foods you eat.


    The Spleen has many functions in the body.  It works with the Stomach to digest and absorb nutrients from foods and transforms worn-out red blood cells into iron to build new blood.  It also plays a role in neutralizing unhealthy bacteria, therefore strengthening your body’s immune system.  So when teeth marks appear on your tongue, it is a sign that your Spleen isn’t strong enough to properly perform these functions in your body.


    Common signs and symptoms that you are Spleen deficient include: poor appetite, bloating after a meal, fatigue especially after a meal, loose stools, undigested food in stools, borborygmus, difficulty maintaining attention and focus, heaviness of your four limbs and body, and over-thinking.


    So what do you do if this is you?  Eat foods that nourish your Spleen! 


    Try these herbs, spices and foods:

    garlic, black pepper, ginger, cayenne pepper, ginseng, cinnamon, horseradish, dill seed, astragalus, parsley

    aduki beans, mung beans, kidney beans

    alfalfa, lychees, fennel

    chicken, fish

    yellow squash, sweet potatoes, turnips, yams, celery, parsnips, beetroot,  carrots, root vegetables, pumpkin

    barley, millet, oats

    leafy greens, algae, kale, chard
