9.3.2 Tongue Cleaning in Ayurveda



In Ayurveda, cleaning your tongue in the morning is like brushing your teeth, only more important. Normally one uses a metal tongue scraper to clean off the accumulation of gunk and to stimulate all the pranic nadis that terminate in the tongue. I was personally a bit skeptical about cleaning my tongue every day until i got a scraper (a thin U-shaped piece of metal) and did it. When I saw all the gunk - accurate description - coming off my tongue day after day I changed my opinion of the sages’ habits of hygiene. Now I wouldn’t leave home without my scraper!
