Tongue scraping could prevent heart attacks

Research is beginning to see a connection between the health of the oral cavity and the cardiovascular system.






Several species of bacteria that cause periodontitis (gum infection) have been found in the atherosclerotic plaque in arteries of the heart and elsewhere. When the plaque builds up it can lead to a heart attack. 

Harvard University also believes that the toxins released by this oral bacteria could harm blood vessels or cause blood clots. In addition, any inflammation of the mouth, which can be caused by bacteria, can increase inflammation throughout the body, including in the arteries - increasing the risk of a heart attack or stroke. 

Daily Tongue Scraping is an easy way to reduce the bacteria, lower levels of inflammation, and possibly prevent any infection from taking place.

Stay Healthy like a Caveman

It's one thing to stay healthy by cleaning your tongue, but it's equally important to watch the food you put into your body. The Paleo (Paleolithic) Diet, commonly referred to as the caveman diet, is an effort to eat like we used to back in the day…WAY back in the day. If a caveman couldn't munch on it, then neither can you. The paleo diet is so simple that “a caveman could do it.” This means anything we could hunt or find – meats, fish, nuts, leafy greens, regional veggies, and seeds... Pasta, cereal, and chocolate will have to go!








On top of eating good and having good hygiene one needs to take care of their body by working out regularly. Check out Rootz Nutrition where they post a new workout each day in the 'workout of the day' section and also for the best pre and post workout paleo supplement.







Scraping Vs. Brushing your tongue

Many people resort to brushing their tongues with their toothbrush. This is definitely better than doing nothing at all, but it's not nearly as effective or convenient as scraping your tongue with a tongue scraper. Here's why:


1) Gag Reflex
Unlike most porn stars, I have an awful gag reflex. I hate when too much stuff is in my mouth and I don't like sticking things too far back either. With a tongue scraper you can control how deep it goes because you are bending it back into your mouth. With a toothbrush it just looks and probably feels like you're sucking a cock - which is totally fine, but not at 7am on a Monday...






2) Spreading the Bacteria
When you brush your tongue you're basically just spreading the bacteria around your tongue. Some of it is raised up and is able to wash out when you rinse your mouth, but the majority of it just stays in the tongue.






3)
Physics
Your teeth are hard so they need a soft surface like the bristles on your toothbrush to clean them. Your tongue is soft and needs something hard like a plastic tongue scraper to move it's way down the tongue and pick up any bacteria that is chilling there.






Also, don't use the thing on the back of some tooth brushes. That literally does nothing and should not be the correlation to tongue scraping that you have in your mind. You can get a free tongue scraper at www.dollarfreshsquad.com





5 Steps To Curing Your Hangover


1) Take an Advil - At the very least it can be a placebo and at the very best it can actually help cure the pain of your hangover. Keep one of these by your bed or in your back pocket (in case of away games).


2) Scrape your Tongue - You probably drank a mixture of different alcohol and sweet chasers that left a ton of residue on your tongue. You also undoubtable ate some late night food that has planted itself on your tongue. Gotta get rid of all that evil but scraping your tongue with a tongue scraper.


3) Drink a bottle of water - Hydration is key. You want to drink so you can pee all of those toxins out of your body. Drink a bottle of water and don't hold in that pee because you're too lazy to make it to the bathroom.


4) Take a poop - Another form of cleansing your system of the naughty things you may have put into your body. Take a seat and scroll though Instagram for a little. Take some time to think about the decisions you made last night and how you'll improve in the future.


5) Take a shower - shine your shoes, you got no time to lose. No, but seriously take a nice hot shower and you should be back to about 93% if you follow these steps in this order.





3 Ways To Avoid Thinking You Have The Black Lung this Cold-Season




It's that time of the year. You wake up and your throat feels like you just spent 8 hours screaming at the top of your lungs. You try coughing it out for a few minutes - it helps, but the pain and sourness is still there. Throughout the day you stop thinking about it, drink some tea, take some Emergen-C, but when you wake up the next morning it's still there. Welcome to 'F*ck This Sh*t Season'. 

Here are 3 keys to staying healthy and making sure you're good to get black-out during Thanksgiving.

1) Scrape Your Tongue - no surprise here. You gotta scrape that nasty bacteria off of your tongue. It comes from all the things you put in your mouth and from the toxins in your body that are rising up. Scrape that sh*t out of your system.



2) Drink Mo Water - When you drink water you pee more and you get to pee those nasty toxins out of your system. If your pee is super dark yellow then you're not doing it right. There are water fountains almost everywhere. Fill up an empty bottle of VOSS and walk around like a boss.




3) Smile More - Your body reacts to your mood. It's all about the endorphins that you produce. Endorphins interact with the receptors in your brain that reduce your perception of pain and also trigger a positive feeling in the body. Smile more and your body will follow suit and keep you healthy.



Things To Eat and Avoid Eating Based On Your Tongue



Your tongue is the mirror to all the organs of the body, and thus, a daily look at the tongue prior to scraping gives you a clue to your general health. We all have different shape, sizes, colors, and coatings to our tongues. Listed below are a few of the common tongues out there and how you should be treating them in regards to your diet.


Thick, Pale, Scalloped Edges

A pale tongue that is swollen with scalloped edges indicates dampness within the body.
This tongue is often associated with symptoms like loose stools, bloating, fatigue, cold, and excess worry.

What to eat: If this is what your tongue looks like, you should emphasize warming foods and herbs (such as soup, lamb, beef, leeks, nuts, fresh ginger, rosemary, and cinnamon.)
You can also incorporate moderate amounts of wild and basmati rice, corn, buckwheat, rye, and amaranth to drain dampness from your system.
What to avoid:  Foods that enhance cold in the body.
These are foods that are eaten straight from the refrigerator, greasy/fried/creamy foods, crunchy foods, cucumbers, ice-cream, bananas, cold drinks, clams, crab, grapefruit, watermelon, radishes, green tea, sour food, and raw vegetables.


Thin, Red, Pointy, Dry

This tongue presentation is often associated with what we call “deficiency heat” in Chinese medicine.
Symptoms associated with this tongue often resemble  menopause, including hot-flashes, night-sweats, insomnia, ringing in the ears, and dry skin and lips.

What to eat: To nourish yourself, incorporate berries and seeds, naturally sweet foods (like honey, yams, and squash,) congee, spelt, quinoa, rice, sour foods, parsley, and sea vegetables.
What to avoid: If this is what your tongue looks like, and you’re experiencing similar symptoms, you’re going to want to avoid salty foods, as well as overly pungent or spicy foods, fried foods, sugar, and alcohol.


Red Tongue-Body, Yellow Greasy Coating

This kind of tongue indicates heat, and is associated with symptoms such as irritability, rashes or pimples, easy sweating, thirst, and dry constipation.

What to eat: Instead of foods that add heat to the body, incorporate more fish, steamed vegetables, salads, seaweed, millet, wild rice, and fruit into your diet.
Also, it might be wise to bitter foods and herbs like dandelion, burdock root, and lettuce to drain the heat in your system.
What to avoid: If this is what your tongue looks like you should avoid spicy, rich, and greasy foods, alcohol, sugar, and limit your meat consumption.


Quivery Tongue with a Red Tip

Both a quivery tongue as well as a red-tipped tongue are symptoms associated with stress, adrenal fatigue, depression, and insomnia.

What to do: If this is what your tongue looks like you need to take extra time to take care of yourself. It would be wise to begin some sort of practice into your before-bed-routine, such as qigong, gentle yoga, or meditation. You might also find herbal teas with passionflower, chamomile, lemon-balm, or California poppy to be beneficial.



Larry David's take on Tongue Scraping




Larry once said that the only thing he ultimately got out of his failed marriage was that Sheryl taught him about tongue scraping:


(Season 8 Episode 2) 


Larry also said. "The other thing was, I'm obsessed with oral hygiene. I floss constantly and she was really getting quite tired of it. I would floss in front of her and she'd be like, 'Don't floss in front of me anymore.' I was like, 'Oh, OK.' And I'm like, 'Tongue scraping, would that be OK?' Then we went out for dinner, she went to the bathroom and I tried to sneak a floss in. She caught me mid-floss. And that was it."

I have learned a surprising amount about Dental hygiene from Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David. Tongue scraping is awesome.
