Have you ever woken up with bad breath or a white, thick coating over your tongue? This isn’t a good feeling and you know quite naturally it feels toxic and you don’t want to be swallowing it and spreading it throughout digestive tract - not a good start to the day!
Ayurveda sees that digestion is key to health and that toxins begin in the mouth. So it makes simple sense to help the cleansing process along and tongue scraping is a 20 second practice that does just this. It improves digestion, the immune system, dental health, enhances saliva production which breaks down food, enhances your taste buds and stimulates the lower intestine for elimination. Pretty cool!
