Metallic Taste In My Mouth

FAQ: Q. I have been cancer free for a year now, but I still have a metallic taste in my mouth, is there anything I can do to change this?

A: It’s possible. Some women report changes in their sense of taste during and after chemotherapy, probably to the sensitive cells on the tongue from chemotherapy. If you are a year or more in remission, you could have deficiencies in zinc, niacin and vitamin A. So a good multivitamin and mineral supplement tailored to your needs may help. Drink plenty of water.

Suggestion for Morning Ritual:

1. Gently use a tongue scraper to scrape the tongue before you eat.
2. Drink a glass 4-8 oz. of warm water with the juice of a half of lemon.

The gentle scraping cleanses the tongue of overnight accumulation of dead cells and bacteria. The lemon water clears the mucus out of the system and alkaline the body.

A word of caution: Lemon may interfere with some medications, so when in doubt, check it out.
