Academic Notes: Ayurveda and Understanding the Tongue

Excessive cracks on the tongue is an indication that vata dosha is vitiated, specifically the dry quality. The more cracks, the more significant the vata vitiation and the more oil and nourishing substances the patient will need to re-establish balance. Daily abhyanga with vata-pacifying oils such as sesame and almond is highly beneficial, along with the internal consumption of high quality, vata-balancing oils such as ghee and sesame oil.

Do you scrape your tongue each morning?

Are you aware how important this is? 


Ayurveda teaches that “the habits and routines of a person's life are the single most important determinant of their well-being.” Those are strong words!
