How to relief a queasy stomach and coated heavy tongue feeling when you wake up

Dental and Mouth, Digestive Wellness, Teeth and Gums

You may know the feeling- as you wake up, your tongue felt dry and as if there’s a coarse coat on it. And your stomach feels queasy and unwell- you probably feel gas moving along your digestive track and overall, you feel uncomfortable.

And you have very bad breath- of course nobody’s breath smells like mint first thing in the morning. But you know how it is, the kind of bad breath that it so bad that it’s like the stench of stinking rotting flesh coming up from your insides.

This could happen if you have a full meal consists of hard to digest food (starch, animal oils, processed, fast food, late supper, milk based products) which may have taxed your digestive system.

If you want to have a ‘good’ and ‘rich’ meal, it’s better to take it during breakfast, brunch or lunch and then walk/ work it off. Because as we move, it helps to move the food around our digestive system- but if we are asleep and do not move much, the digestive process is not efficient- and so you will wake up with side effects.

Instant relief

Here are some way you can instantly relief the morning queasy tummy and uncomfortable coated tongue feeling: 

Squeeze some lime or lemon (yellow or green will do just fine) into a glass of warm water. Drink as slowly as you can- not in huge gulps. It will be better if you can have another glass of warm water (not hot water that it burns your tongue and esophagus but is warm enough). 

Other alternative: eat citrus fruits like oranges, grapefruit and apples as well as papaya. Watermelon and honeydew have a ‘cooling’ effect- it’s okay to take on a hot afternoon but not first thing in the morning.  But always include a cup of warm water- and if you have not boiled water- then at least water at room temperature.

Drinking warm water first thing in the morning on an empty stomach (before you brush your teeth) is good for your tummy. Then wait for at least 15 minutes or longer before you have your breakfast.

Long term solution involves gradually changing your dietary habits. The above is just a temporarily relief- it cleanses your internal system and if you do that often, your chronic tummy problems would improve.

If they don’t then, you will need to check if your lifestyle’s too stressful.
