Geographic Tongue Problem?
Visit SiteDoctors say that Geographic Tongue is “Benign” … meaning it won’t kill you.
But that’s little consolation if it’s your tongue that is an ugly mass of bald patches, white rings, cracks or whatever. In the next few minutes, I’m going to “give it to you straight” “pull no punches” because you deserve to know the truth and you may not get it anywhere else. But the news is not all bad.
Let me explain. When a doctor tells you it is “incurable” all he means is that he doesn’t have a “magic bullet” for it.
I believe Geographic Tongue is incurable because it isn’t a disease. By that I mean, I don’t think there is a specific virus or bacteria that causes it.
Think about it for a minute… How do you “cure” something if it isn’t even a disease?
But first let’s look at why Doctors can’t find the solution. And why as long as you view it as a disease you will never find the cure either.
Late one evening a man was walking down a dark street and came across a young boy who was frantically looking for a lost coin under a streetlight…
The man came up and started to help. Finally in frustration he asked the boy where he lost it, the boy replied with a jerk of his thumb, “Oh, Up the street a ways”
Puzzled, the man asked why he was looking here and the boy answered, “Because the light is better here.”
The story sounds so silly that it must be just a joke, and yet that is exactly the problem with Geographic Tongue … the researchers are looking in the wrong place because the light is better!
There is a strange thing about geographic tongue. It tends to come and go. One day your tongue might be a mess of bald patches and look almost like raw hamburger and a few days later hope begins to build because it looks like it might be almost gone. And for some people it might actually go away for a day or two or even a week or two.
It’s like it has a mind of its own, one day it just decides, OK I’ve bothered him (or her) enough… I’ll give them a break for a few days… just enough to taunt them and make them think they are getting better…
You would think if it were a true disease caused by a bacteria or virus, it would continue to grow and grow, and take advantage of every opportunity to multiply. Or your body would develop an immunity to it and it would go away. But not this back and forth, back and forth. This is something different… but what?
Believe it or not, roughly 3% of the world’s population is suffering with geographic tongue. Worldwide that’s more than 200 Million people with Geographic Tongue. And that’s not counting all the people with other tongue problems.
If all the people in the world who have Geographic Tongue were in one country, it would be the fifth largest country in the world! (That’s a lot of people with Geographic Tongue).
In more common language it is also known as Map Tongue, Geographic or Geographical Tongue. It got those names because with all the different shapes, bald patches, ridges and valleys it can make your tongue look a bit like a map. But inspite of all the fancy names doctors still don’t know what to do about it. But…
I suffered from Geographic Tongue and through a strange set of circumstances I learned how to get rid of it. You see, shortly after college I fought the battle of my life (literally). Somehow, I developed Crohn’s disease and went from a healthy 135 lbs down to 95 lbs and literally thought I was going to die (and I looked like it too.) In the process, I had a huge chunk of my intestines removed. From that I developed Geographic Tongue and eventually that led to my discovering the solution.

That was 25 years ago. Today I am a healthy active person, I’ve traveled all over the world. I’ve hiked up volcanos, ridden elephants in Thailand and visited places like China, Brazil, Ecuador, several countries in Europe and even the Ivory Coast, Kenya and Zimbabwe in Africa and I am rarely bothered by Geographic Tongue. Above is my picture taken recently by Hoover Dam, near Boulder City, Nevada.
Over the years, I’ve discovered ways to reduce or eliminate my own Geographic Tongue and I have helped hundreds (thousands?) of other people, young and old, male and female, to do exactly the same thing.
Over the last few years, I’ve had the opportunity to talk to people from all walks of life, from all over the world, who have suffered with Geographic Tongue. I know from personal experience what works and what doesn’t and I have the scientific research to back it up, too.
Well, I don’t blame you… since “everyone” says there is no cure. If I hadn’t seen it myself, I’d be skeptical too. After all if there is no cure how can you make it go away? Read more…
