Welcome to ehealthforum.
It is difficult to comment on the cause for the white coated tongue that you describe without examining it and going ahead with further evaluation. The possibilities could include oral thrush, leukoplakia, oral Lichen planus, dehydration, dry mouth, excessive alcohol use, smoking, use of certain medications etc. Visit your doctor for further evaluation if symptoms remain persistent.
Regardless of what you have, your body needs to be detoxified for it to heal properly. You can purchase a full body detox kit at the health food store.
1. start taking acidophilus capsules, twice daily
2. use a tongue scraper
3. start taking a tbsp. of coconut oil a day. The coconut oil kills the fungus
