This Ayurvedic bathroom accessory is a game changer for daily health. The benefits of this tool extend beyond oral health, it also helps improve digestion. You brush, floss, and rinse daily, and you should also consider adding a copper tongue scraper to your routine.
Ayurvedic medicine is one of the world's oldest holistic healing systems. It was developed more than 3,000 years ago in India. It's based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit.
The process of digestion being the moment we put food in our mouth. However, when the tongue is coated with bacteria, food debris, and fungi our tongues cannot properly indicate the foods we are eating. Therefore, the tongue cannot send the signals to our bodies to determine what sort of digestive enzymes are needed.
Dental research has also shown that tongue scraping is more effective at removing toxins and bacteria from the tongue than a toothbrush. When toxins are left on the tongue they are reabsorbed by the body and can cause digestive and other issues. Copper is the best metal to use for tongue scraping. It is toxic to the bad bacteria and provides important enzymes that are needed for the healthy microbes in the mouth to survive.
