Remove Ama With a Copper Tongue Polish
2018.5.13 | Tsubaki

Yoga has a purification method called “Kriya Yoga” to remove toxins from the body. Among them, I practice nose cleanse, tongue cleanse, and eye purification.

 

Morning time is when the ama (toxins) are discharged. Thus, after brushing my teeth, it has become my ritual to preform tongue cleansing.

 

Let me introduce to you an Ayurvedic tongue cleansing technique that originated from India.

 

My tongue scraper is made of copper. Copper is known to have high antibacterial effect and works very well on bad breath. After performing my tongue cleanse, I can notice better oral hygiene.

 

“My tongue is this dirty?” would probably be your first impression after you scrape off the white toxins from your tongue. I was shocked when I first conducted this procedure. However, after perusing the steps, my tongue felt surprisingly beautiful, and exhilarating!

 

Besides asanas, there are the eight limbs of yoga known as ashtanga. In that are the yamas and niyamas also introduced in the yoga sutras. Niyamas represent self-discipline that should be performed in your daily life. Out of the five niyamas is Saucha or cleanliness.

 

Saucha means to keep your body and heart always clean. It’s important to keep your appearance neat, but also our surrounding environment, too.

 

This includes your oral hygiene so don’t forget to clean your mouth!

 

*Note: I purchased this copper tongue scraper at Organic Life Tokyo event two years ago for 1000 yen. You can also purchase it on Amazon.

After graduating from university, she started her career experiencing various professions in PR, Media, and IT.
As she became passionate about the effect of yoga both on the body and soul, she decided to deepen her understanding through teacher training at UTL. She began to provide her own yoga training as an instructor to help people discover an overall sense of well-being.
