I read your book already could not put it down. Just to give you some history of myself. I am a 48 year old Canadian male not over weight and a non-smoker in what i thought was above average health. About 10 months ago during a routine dental exam my dentist informed me that i had a Geographic Tongue, he said it was benign and nothing to worry about. When I got home I looked for myself and the only thing I saw was a couple of bare ( smooth ) patches, as I was feeling no discomfort i just forgot about it at the time.
Then about 3 months ago I noticed a stinging on both my cheeks upon further investigation it appeared that I had bitten myself hard causing a deep lesion on both cheeks. This condition continued to bother my for a few days when I decided to call my dentist and without seeing me he advised me that I was likely clenching my teeth in my sleep and bit myself, he said that stress is the likely cause of the clenching. I agreed with him and again was not that concerned. As these lesions appeared to be taking a long time to heal I thought maybe I could speed things up by using a mouthwash, to my surprise when I used a mouth wash my tongue quickly felt like it was being irritated more so than my cheeks. I took a good look at my tongue and noticed it was full of small deep cracks, this concerned me so I called my doctor and when I saw him he seemed unconcerned. He did say he thought I had a yeast infection and gave me a prescription for Nystatin I am on my 3rd prescription and it may be helping a bit but definitely not clearing everything up.
From what I read in your book, I have concluded that I have 3 tongue conditions
1. Geographic tongue- mild or early stages
2. Fissured tongue- Mild to medium range as compared to pictures
3. Yeast ( Thrush ) – Mild to Medium range
I believe what you say about fixing the root cause as opposed to just trying to heal the tongue. I was under a tremendous amount of stress the 12 months before I first noticed these symptoms, family, work and personal problems resulted in me not eating right a lot of the time and drinking alcohol more that what was normal for me so I do believe I may have caused this condition to arise. I actually had just turned the corner with dealing with those other problems and was just starting to eat properly again ( i had to my stomach was bothering me and I was having acid reflux so bad I was seeing my doctor about that already ) when I noticed my mouth condition.
Anyway I badly want to do whatever it takes to get back to normal and healthy again. I realize it won’t be easy and am willing to make the required commitment and diet changes required. I already take a good multi-vitamin daily i also take chlorella,and a 81mg aspirin and that’s about it besides food. I had already cut out most sugars and bread as they have given me heartburn all my life. After reading your book and jotting down as I read what i should do and what vitamin’s and mineral supplements I should take and what foods I should eat and avoid to say the least I am a little overwhelmed I have four pages written and not sure where to start.
Could you simplify it for me because there is no way I can take everything I wrote down. I want to follow your VIGOR program And could you tell me what order to take these vitamins and supplements in and for how long. I am not looking for a quick fix and realize it will take time I like to exercise and need to be healthy as my job requires me to be in shape and is quite demanding physically, and mentally. I also enjoy golfing and hiking and boating and don’t want to have to stop doing any of these activities because I’m to lazy or committed to getting healthy again.
