So… brushing your teeth is an all round top idea, I'm sure you'd agree. Brushing your tongue… from a chinese medicine perspective, no so much! Can you imagine my shock when Mel told us, part of her morning routine involved scrubbing the bajongers out of her tongue! Yes, this is her reaction….
I'm not even kidding. Your digestion starts in your mouth. Your tongue coat reveals so much about you and in TCM, we don't advocate for it. I've done a bit of thinking about it, and I guess the real issue is that the coat is there for a reason, and when we brush it away, we reveal the tongue body, much like we would the gut lining with antibiotics and we heard what a disaster that can be with Dorota and last weeks probiotic segment .
