A tongue cleaner or tongue scraper is not only used in Ayurveda to remove ama on the tongue every day immediately after getting up. The tongue shows you where Ama is in the body.
Gently removes plaque on the tongue, reduces bad breath, stimulates the digestive tract, improves the sense of taste. According to Ayurvedic teachings, daily cleaning of the tongue strengthens the digestive fire and stimulates the digestive tract. A whitish coating all over the tongue indicates that Ama is in the whole body. If only the back third of the tongue is covered, ama is mainly present in the intestine. Incidentally, with a brownish topping, the Vata is also disturbed. After the tongue scraping, you can use the herbal toothpaste without fluorine and if you want you can also use the oil slurping:
Sipping oil before breakfast
Ayurveda recommends sipping oil before breakfast on an empty stomach. A tablespoon of sunflower or sesame oil is kept in motion by thoroughly chewing, sucking, rinsing and pulling through your teeth. Gradually, the consistency of the oil changes. The initially thick oil becomes thinner and almost white like milk, for example, during rinsing. After about 15-20 minutes, the oil is spit out, which is now contaminated with pathogens and toxins. The oral cavity is then thoroughly rinsed several times with warm water and the teeth are brushed. In the case of acute or chronic illnesses, sipping oil on an empty stomach can also be used three times a day.
Tongue cleaner applicationThe tongue cleaner is applied with the curve to the root of the tooth and slowly pulled over the extended tongue, a maximum of three times. Then rinse your mouth with warm water and wash off the tongue cleaner. Always rub the tongue cleaner dry after use and keep it dry. Oil slurping can now also be used.
