Clean with Tongue Scraping
Got a coated tongue?
Did you know that your tongue is an indicator of the health of your entire GI (gastro-intestinal) tract?
If your tongue is coated with a film of waste, your intestines most likely are not clean either.
Learning how to eat healthy and how to detox will assist your body in cleaning out this built up waste.
And while you are doing these things, the use of a tongue scraper is invaluable at helping you to scrape this toxic matter from your tongue.
A coated tongue is full of bacterial plaque that can lead to bad breath.
Of all the bad breath remedies out there tongue scraping is one of the simplest and one of the most beneficial. Combine daily tongue scraping with eating well, oil pulling and good oral hygiene and you can say good-bye to bad breath.
When Should I Use a Tongue Scraper?
Use a tongue scraper first thing in the morning. This is when the coating on your tongue will be the heaviest as your body naturally detoxes as you sleep.
You do not want to re-ingest all of this waste that your body has worked hard at eliminating all night long so before you do anything else in the morning do some tongue scraping.
Use when Doing a Detox Cleanse
Whenever you are doing a detox cleanse or a juice fast be sure to use a tongue scraper.
When you are doing any sort of cleansing fast you will find that the coating on your tongue is much heavier than normal. This shows that your body is working hard to eliminate toxins. Using a tongue scraper during this time will help to get that toxic matter out of your body.
Benefits the Entire Body
The tongue has reflex points on it that relate to all other areas of the body.
Tongue scraping not only cleanses the tongue but also massages the tongue which will reflex to all other areas of the body. This can stimulate circulation, relaxation and healing throughout your entire system.
Everything truly is connected.
Where do I get a Tongue Scraper?

How to Use a Tongue Scraper
Hold the tongue scraper at its ends with both hands. Place the tongue scraper at the back of your coated tongue and gently scrape forward the entire length of your tongue. Do this 4-5 times rinsing the tongue scraper in between each scraping of your tongue.
This whole process takes less than a minute.

Tongue scraping is an ancient practice in India and in many other places in the world. Bring some of this ancient wisdom into your own life by using a tongue scraper every morning.
