Today, I’m sharing with you a very simple yet effective way of daily detox that has not only increased my confidence but also boosted my immune system.

When you add this handy dandy little tool into your daily hygiene regimen you will wonder why they don’t make commercials about it…seriously.

It’s called a Tongue Scrapper and this simple instrument has been used for centuries in Ayurveda, the Sister Science of Yoga.


The tongue scrapper, is an inexpensive yet transformational tool.

It’s a simple, thin, u-shaped piece of stainless steel with a blunted edge that removes plaque and build-up from the surface of the tongue.  American dentists are now recommending the tongue cleaner because it helps to fight cavities by removing bacterial build up from the mouth.  The tongue scrapper will also help prevent bad breath, especially for people with sinus issues or that consume dairy products.

According to Ayurveda, people that practice daily tongue scrapping are better public speakers, can express themselves more thoughtfully and speak more sincerely and authoritatively.

You might think that simply brushing your tongue will have the same benefits, but that just isn’t the case.

When you brush your tongue, all your doing is moving things around, which might be helpful, but will not clean off deep grimy deposits in the surface of the tongue.  Scrapping is simply more effective because it cleans off the deep deposits and generally keeps the area cleaner, stimulated and alive.

The tongue scrapper helps you to desensitize your taste buds.

  • Scrapping your tongue between meals can be a powerful tool in managing your cravings because is removes the taste of your previous meal from the taste buds  When you can still taste the food your taste buds become used to experiencing taste and that can lead to cravings.
  • With daily use, you will be able to enjoy the more subtle flavors of whole foods, fruits and vegetable.  You will develop a palate for clean food and a dis-taste for chemically laden processed food-like substances.
  • When old residue is removed from the tongue, you will be better able to taste your food.  You won’t eat as much because your taste will be satisfied sooner and you will experience greater satisfaction.

Tongue scraping also boosts your immune system because you won’t continually be swallowing the toxic film and decayed food particles.

Now, here’s the Numero Uno benefit for you love birds…it makes kissing so much more enjoyable!  The tongue is sweeter, fresher and much more sensitive.  Go ahead, try it out with your beloved.

Now, pick up one up on your way home or have Amazon deliver a Stainless Steel to your door.

Try it for one week.  I’ll bet you add this to your daily detox regimen or dinacharya!

How to

  • Brush your teeth.
  • Stick out your tongue
  • Hold scupper with by grips with rounded end toward mouth
  • Gently scrap from back to front
  • Rinse and repeat 2 – 3 times
  • Note – You don’t want to scrape off your taste buds and you should not be gagging.  Don’t scrape too hard or too far back.  If you’ve found the bumps one the back of your tongue, those are your salivery glands, you need them, leave them there.
