  2. Brushing with astringent, pungent, and bitter roots (or twigs made into brushes), twice a day, without injuring gums. Flossing is important and herbal tooth powders are also beneficial. 
  3. Scraping the root of the tongue with instruments of copper, tin, or brass. Curved U-shaped metal strips or spoons are used. Scraping removes obstructions in respiration. By scraping the whole tongue, one releases repressed emotions. Scraping the tongue is also done upon waking each morning.

It is suggested especially to balance the sense of touch (Vata), Adding medicated oils such as mahanarayan and dachmul to the base oil further nurtures tissues, and draws toxins out of the body.

Cleaning feet and Having a healthy bowel movement daily promotes intelligence, purity, longevity, destroys inauspiciousness and dirt.
