Woman with Tongue OutHaving an enlarged or swollen tongue can be life threatening. Most people don’t realize that you can help an enlarged or swollen tongue with lymphatic system detoxification. There are many causes for an enlarged or swollen tongue, from trauma, surgery, radiation, buildup of amyloids and allergic reactions. When the tongue has become enlarged or swollen the main reason is circulation has become compromised. A severe swelling of the tongue, often seen in children, is called macroglossia. When you manually help improve lymph flow in the neck, under the ears and under the tongue you improve circulation and natural detoxification of cellular waste and inflammation from the tissues of the tongue and mouth. Besides improving lymph flow it is important to balance the pH of the body with a more alkaline diet, magnesium supplementation and systemic enzymes.
