Discoloured tongue

Having read the teeth whitening post i'm wondering if anyones got some advice on discoloured tongues. I'm not sure if it's a result of too much protein or dairy but my tongue is more white than red! i sometimes get a yellowish colouring towards the back too. I'm wondering if a tongue scraper will do the job or is a diet change needed?

    Sounds like a lot of Bacteria build up mate. Brush your Teeth properly.

    You can tell a lot by the state of your tounge. Them Chinese herbalists can diagnose a hell of a lot by just looking at your tounge.

    Just had a look at McKeiths you are what you eat book (particularly interesting section on stools) and apparently the yellow at the back of my tongue mean i need to take care of my colon. And the white is lack of beneficial bacteria and a possible elevation of yeasts.

    So i need to cut out some dairy, bye bye cheese :(. And drink some aloe vera juice for my bowels?!? anyone know what this tastes like?
