look at these SYNTHETIC DRUGS and see how they affect the tongue, then imagine what that means to the organs of the body that it is responding to…
***Antibiotics make the tongue peel within 2-3 days and this peeling is not replaced until 2-3 weeks after the antibiotics are stopped.
***Asthma medications (bronchodilators) causes the tip of the tongue to redden.
***Diuretics cause the coating to disappear (yin deficiency). Years of diuretics causes the tongue to peel.
***Anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID’s) causes the tongue to have red points and makes the body of the tongue thinner. Years of taking these drugs cause the tongue to peel.
***Anticancer drugs can cause the tongue to develop a thick brown to black dry coating.
***Steroids causes the tongue to become red and swollen.
