“The tongue is the mirror to all the organs of the body.” Deepak Chopra
The tongue is one of the most neglected organs in the body. Brushing, flossing, and even mouth wash are often not enough to remove harmful bacteria or build-up on the tongue. With a few simple scrapes, you can revitalize your tongue, teeth, and mouth, and protect the internal organs directly linked to tongue health.
Tongue scraping is an ancient Ayurvedic oral care remedy that rids the mouth of bacteria and build-up that contribute to poor oral ecology. It is a painless process to remove dead skin cells, food particles, fungus, and bacteria from the surface of the tongue.
Tongue scraping may also improve immune function. Ayurvedic tradition teaches that each area of the tongue corresponds to an internal organ. By scraping the entire tongue, each of these organs is awakened and revitalized, leading to a myriad of body benefits including better digestion and better bowel movements.
For best results, scrape your tongue with a Copper Tongue Scraperevery time you brush your teeth.
