In today’s video, you’ll learn why scraping your tongue should be a habit you add to your routine.
We Westerners do not have this habit. Yes, we brush our teeth and even our tongues, but scraping is not unheard of yet, right?
Did you know that this small habit can bring improvements in your life?
Tongue scraping is an ancient technique, recommended even by dentists, but it hasn’t been talked about much lately.
According to Ayurveda, tongue scraping should be part of our daily routine.
The tongue contains many waste products, such as bacteria, fungi, toxins, and even some residual feelings. If we do not clean it, the body will reabsorb these residues, which will harm the body and the balance of the person.
Did you take a good look at your tongue today?
According to the millennial Indian philosophy that combines health and wellness, scraping your tongue right after waking up should be one of the first things in your day.
This prevents toxins released during sleep from being absorbed and returned to the body with breakfast.
You don’t need to buy a tongue scraper to do this, although they do come in many different types – plastic, brass or stainless steel, you can start doing it with a teaspoon.
Scraping your tongue has many benefits, such as:
- Prevents bad breath.
- Detoxifies the body.
- Rejuvenate your taste buds
- Improves the health of teeth and gums.
- Contributes to the immune system.
- facilitates digestion.
- Reduces sputum production.
- Purifies the mind and body.
- Now that you know the benefits of this practice, you should ask yourself:
How do I scrape my tongue?
Today, you can easily find tongue scrapers in pharmacies. If you find a brass one, pick it up.
But, if you don’t, buy a plastic one, which is usually easy to find. In an emergency, even a spoon works.
Scrape your tongue every morning after waking up before eating anything.
Every morning before drinking the water, grab the scraper by the handles and place the large curve on the back of your tongue.
With gentle pressure, pull it from back to front.
Rinse the scraper with water and repeat the process if necessary.
Plain, simple and healthy, right?
