Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

A gray or otherwise discolored tongue (tongues should generally be a pink-red color) can be signs of ill-health or poor health/nutrition. So can a red line down the middle, according to Gillian McKeith - you can read about it in this article here: http://www.empowher.com/community/share/its-ok-stick-your-tongue-out-it-...

Here is more on her "tongue test" -

Let me know what you think!

What's the rest of your tongue like? What color? Are you eating healthy foods?
