Why Tongue Scrapping Is The First Thing You Should Do Every Morning
Our tongues are a clear indication of what is going on inside of our bodies and are a pure reflection of our health.
The body works to detoxify itself overnight and the toxins (known as ama) are deposited on the surface of the tongue.
As soon as you jump out of bed in the morning, go to the bathroom and look at your tongue in the mirror. What you will find is a layer of white coating that looks like mucous. If we want to live in a healthy state, we must remove these toxins.
This is done by following two simple steps:
- Brush your teeth within three minutes of waking. It’s important to use a natural toothpaste free from chemicals as this will only introduce more toxins into the body.
- Scrape your tongue using a scrapper made from wood or copper. (Copper is the one metal that does not carry impurities). Otherwise, you can also use a face washer. Simply hold out your tongue and wipe it clean.
No matter how good the food or drink is that we have in the morning, if we don’t remove these toxins before eating, the toxins built up overnight will go back into our system and slowly start depositing into different areas of the body. Over time this can lead to further complications such as bad breath, gum disease and tooth decay.
Be gentle with yourself and don’t scrape too hard or too often. The tongue is sensitive and we don’t want it to bleed.
A healthy tongue should be a pinkish colour.
