Practices for the Pandemic: 14 Days of Healing

Day 8: Tongue Scraping

Have you ever over-indulged and felt the effects on your tongue the next morning? A heavy coating on the tongue is indicative of ama, or toxicity in the body, often produced by over-indulgence, poor digestion of food, or chronic stress. Today’s practice addresses toxicity through tongue scraping, a simple practice for detoxifying the body, purifying the breath and stimulating healthy digestion. Each morning before brushing your teeth, you use a tool designed for this process to remove any accumulated film. It’s a simple but effective remedy to keep your vitality strong.
