My friend wants to know if white tongue and lump in the throat is a candida symptom. She has a white coating on my tongue, because she does and it is giving her bad breath. Also, she thinks she has a lump in her throat. She is wondering if that is related to candida or acid reflux or both.
Most of us, the candida sufferers, have that white tongue she got, but it isn’t candidiasis, it caused by other yeasts. I believe this Yeast syndrome is one of the worst diseases out there, because you don’t know what you have.
The white coating on your tongue itself is a sign of cleansing and/or ketosis. I read somewhere that it happens and is normal when you stop eating carbohydrates/sugar and only eat the protein and fat. Try scraping your tongue and drinking more water. The coating will clear up as your body becomes cleaner. This really makes sense, because it happens to me when I cut off carbs.
Bad breath means toxic colon. I, too, have had the lumpy sore throat for years. It went away after I did a year and a half program from candida wellness center, but still had vaginal yeast, so I don’t really recommend it. I find that when I follow a low carb diet I get a lump in my throat. It happens all the time.
Ketosis, which makes you having the white tongue, is not a healthy thing to be in, as it means you are burning too much fat too quickly and it can tax your kidneys. You may want to increase your carbs a bit by eating more veggies.
