Copper Tongue Cleaner
In Ayurveda, the tongue is a map of the internal organs. Each night the tongue processes the mouth's bacteria from the day, leaving a coating of Ama (toxin) build-up on the tongue first thing in the morning to clean.
Gently cleaning the tongue with a copper tongue cleaner prevents any accumulation of toxic residue, as it can result from improper eating, poor digestion, or a reflection of an imbalance somewhere in the gastrointestinal system.
In addition, from an Ayurvedic perspective, removing the coating increases your taste reception; you eat less, and you also eliminate the need to add more sugar, salt, or excessive spice to the food to make it more flavourful. Many of the beneficial phytonutrients and "body signals" that food contains are first interpreted by the mind-body upon contact with receptors on the tongue. You want to improve this communication between your food and your body by removing any coating interfering with that connection.
Glide the rounded edge from the back to the front of your mouth three to five times, rinsing residue in between scrapes.
