Tongue Scraper


Ayurvedic Tongue Care-Scraping your Tongue   

Ayurvedic Tongue Size and Shape

Inspect your tongue. Scrutinize the shape, color moistness, cracks, tremors, coating, etc…If your tongue has a coating, see what color it is.


 A Vata tongue is diminutive, skinny, dehydrated and possibly brownish in color. You may observe slight tremors and twitches.

A Pitta tongue is wide and pointed at the tip. The tip is red and the margins are distinct and sharp. There may be yellow or reddish discoloration.

A Kapha tongue is round, wet, broad and big, often pale, and may have a white coating.

Tongue Coating

A healthy tongue is pink, clean, with no coating.

If coating is present, that may point to the existence of bodily ama. Ama is a by- product or sign of improper digestion; it results from undigested and unabsorbed food.
A slight coating at the back of the tongue is a sign of colon toxicity. If the entire tongue is coated, it is a signal of ama all through the whole gastrointestinal tract.
Scrape you Tongue

Yogis have been scraping their tongues hygienic for thousands of years. The olden science of Ayurveda reveals that the tongue cleaning stimulates the salivary glands, which aids in digestion. Scraping the tongue may help with sore throats, sinus infection, bad breath, nose blockage, and mucous buildup.

Regularly scraping the tongue gets rids of mucous which a breeding ground for infection and tooth decay. (See Neti Pot for further info with sinus problems).

There are thousands of energy points in the tongue that are opened and stimulated by tongue scraping.

Tongue & Heart Disease?

Eventually buildup of junk on the tongue can possibly lead to serious health problems including heart disease. Pathogens that enter the bloodstream by the tongue are harmful.

Tongue Scrapers vs. Brushers

Tooth brushes are filthy. Scrape with filth and get more filth. A stainless steel tongue scraper however is a clean (if kept clean) device that doesn't cost much and lasts nearly forever. .

Tongue scrapers basically remove the nasty film that coats the tongue.

Daily tongue scraping may decrease the jeopardy of disease and help strengthen the immunity system.

There are also tongue brushers available. Some people just use their toothbrush. However keep in mind any bacteria on your toothbrush will spread to your tongue. If you accidentally puncture your tongue any bacterial on the brush will leak inside your bloodstream.

Tongue Scraping Specifics and Directions

One of the best ways to keep the tongue healthy is by scraping it daily. This removes overnight buildup of bacteria and toxins on the tongue.

To do this, extend the tongue and place the scraper as far back on the tongue as is comfortable. Gently scrape from the back or base of the tongue using one long stroke, until you have scraped the whole surface. Rinse the scraper and begin again. Do this until the tongue feels clean and is free of coating. Ayurveda says that scraping the tongue should only be done in the morning on an empty stomach. In addition to removing bacteria from the tongue, scraping sends an indirect message to all the internal organs and stimulates gastric fire and digestive enzymes and keeps the breath fresh.
