    Tongue Health
    In Ayurveda, one of the primary investigative tools of practitioners for determining the state of ones health is tongue diagnosis.

    Ayurveda suggests that the surface of the tongue reflects an entire map of the bodies overall health.

    Each dosha has different colour signs. Vata will be more a brownish colour, with coating more pronounced at the back, Pitta will have more of a yellow coating and kapha a whitish tongue, often with a layer of mucus.

    How do you want your tongue to look? A pink colour across the entire tongue, no cracks on the tongue, thin coating of white mucus and no teeth marks.
