In ancient medicine it's always advised to scrape the tongue in a daily bases. It is interesting to see what comes off the tongue each day, as this is a direct reflection of your diet. Buildups on the tongue surface can be toxins and you definitely want to avoid re-ingesting them into your system. Use a tongue scraper made of stainless steel, or ask your dentist to provide you one with high quality. Scrape the tongue gently from back to front and rinse. Following this cleaning you can benefit from any cleansing juice or diet.
