Ayurvedic tongue scraper

Good Health (Australia) - - Be Inspired -

An an­cient Ayurvedic prac­tice, tongue scrap­ing in­volves gen­tly scrap­ing the white coat­ing off the tongue using a metal (of­ten cop­per) U-shaped tool. “The the­ory be­hind it is that there are a lot of tox­ins that ac­cu­mu­late on the coat­ing of the tongue overnight, so it’s help­ful to elim­i­nate them so they don’t get swal­lowed into the di­ges­tive sys­tem,” says Ali­son. “If you have hal­i­to­sis, tend to get a thick coat­ing on your tongue or your im­mune sys­tem isn’t that strong, it’s a good idea to try it as a morn­ing rit­ual.”
