Ayurvedic Self Care Tool
Tongue scraping has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years as part of their health and wellness principals. According to Ayurveda, the surface of the tongue maps to the internal organs. The act of tongue cleaning applies gentle pressure over the entire surface of the tongue, awakening the major organs of detoxification and elimination. Basically a great habit to start!!
Tongue cleaning is a really fast and easy step to add to your oral hygiene routine that removes any build up of bacteria and toxins that form on the tongue throughout the day or over night.
Unlike brushing your teeth and flossing, tongue cleaning works to prevent the reabsorption of undigested food particles that linger on the tongue. If left untouched, these bad boys accumulate and form a discoloured thicken coating (whitish fuzz, aka ama - the technical term!!) It is this that causes bad breath, poor oral health, weak digestion and unwanted toxicity in the body.
Using a tongue scraper removes 30 percent more build up than regular brushing alone and is the best way to naturally clean your tongue without using any toxic chemicals or plastic devices.
