Yes, it is important to brush your tongue, but I know that people with a sensitive gag reflex can really hate having to do it. Itís also important to brush the roof of your mouth too. Tongue scraping (and brushing) alone wonít fix bad breath and/or if you have white tongue. It depends on the shape and texture of your tongue, diet and a bunch of other things. Also, you can hurt your tongue if you scrape it too hard. You have to clean your tongue correctly. You can check out more about tongue coating here http://www.therabreath.com/art_whitetongue.as... and find out more about that yucky gunk on your tongue too.
For the back of your tongue, try using a mouthwash without alcohol in it, that should help too. Try any of Therabreathís mouthwashes. None of them contain alcohol and they are safe enough to swallow.

brush the tongue can prevent bad breath, but it would be worse for your teeth if youíre throwing up every night after brushing! Lots of germs hang out on the tongue so brushing that area of the mouth routinely is good fro overall oral hygiene. Try brushing the front part of the tongue, donít go too far back. You may gag less or not at all. Lol!!
