Doing This Every Day May Get Rid Of Plaque & Cavities

oil-pulling

Oil pulling is a simple and inexpensive daily habit that you can incorporate into your life. It is beneficial for your teeth and gums, and has been used as an oral health remedy for many, many years. It may seem weird to swish coconut oil around in your mouth, but it may help to keep you out of the dentist’s office.

 

The process of oil pulling starts with taking one tablespoon of organic unrefined coconut oil and swishing it around in your mouth for five to twenty minutes. Fifteen to twenty minutes is the optimal amount of time you should oil pull, but first time oil pullers should start with five minutes. You can gradually work your way up to twenty minutes, increasing the amount of time every day.

 

If you have a smaller mouth, you may want to adjust the amount oil to whatever is tolerable, possibly even down to a teaspoon or less. Once you become comfortable with oil pulling, you can increase the amount of oil you use.

 

How To Oil Pull:

Swish the oil around the front and back of the mouth, over the tongue, and toward the back of the throat, but do not swallow the oil. To maximize oral health, it is recommended to pull the oil in and out from between the teeth and around the gums as well. This can help reduce plaque build up and lower your risk of gum disease or tooth decay.

 

At the end of your pulling session, spit the oil out in a cup or trashcan. A whitish color indicates that you successfully helped to rid toxins from your mouth. Gargle some warm water to rinse your mouth and brush your teeth without toothpaste in order to clean off your teeth.

 

Benefits of Oil Pulling:

 

Natural Teeth Whitener:

Rather than using commercial, chemical-laden teeth whiteners, oil pulling helps to cleanse toxins from your mouth. It also helps to clean the teeth and reduce plaque build up.

 

Freshens Breath:

Bad breath, medically known as halitosis, is typically the result of having an excess amount of toxins or bacteria in the mouth. The natural properties in coconut oil help to attack the bacteria, helping to naturally freshen your breath and oral health.

 

Helps You Detox:

Your mouth, despite what you wish to believe, is home to a variety of bacteria and toxins. If these toxins accumulate in the body, it can lead to oxidative stress or improper organ function. Start oil pulling to help with overall body detoxification.

 

Removes Plaque:

This is probably one of primary reasons that you should start oil pulling. Oil pulling works especially well on the Streptococcus mutans bacterium, which can cause cavities, gingivitis, or other oral health issues.

    Q: In the past two months I have lost two molars, these molars had mercury fillings. I have poor iron deficiency, due to loss of blood due to having uterine fibroids. I do believe that my molars dropped out due to this deficiency, and stress. I do get tooth pain from the resulting piece of the molar that is still inside of my mouth. I have to take acetominiphen to stop the pain. I read your article in which you said that you have not been to a dentist in many years, and your teeth are just fine. A dentist told me that if I do not have the molars replaced the the rest of my teeth will spread apart. I am unsure what to do. Do I have two spaces without teeth? Do I leave my other teeth spread apart? Do I leave that area alone? Do I get fake stuff in my mouth? I have begun the process of oil pulling to help with cleansing. I don't know how many times a day I should oil pull? I will be purchasing a tongue scraper, and I have begun to floss more often. I need some advice on proper dental care. Also how often should one have their teeth professionally cleaned, or is there a process in which I can learn to professionally clean my teeth myself, rather than paying a dental hygienist.

    A:

    Dental care is pretty allopathic, and you need to make a choice about the piece of molar in your mouth. Are you willing to deal with your teeth spreading. While my teeth have been fine since 1994, I still live with the damage of my past (I have two teeth that were pulled and have empty space where the molars were - I didn't want plastic or anything synthetic in my mouth). The last time I went to the dentist, he did major damage trying to pull my tooth out. A piece of teeth went through my gums, and slightly protruded through my mouth. It eventually healed, but I learned my lesson. So you have a choice to make, Beloved! Only you can make that decision. You don't want to live with pain though! That's why I got my two teeth pulled - the pain was unbearable! I've been fine ever since due to my vegan and raw foods diet. I know brush my teeth with Dherbs.com Herbal Tooth Powder and sometimes Activated Charcoal. These help keep the teeth very white and the mouth hygienic. You only oil pull once a day, or if you oil pull more than once, you only do so on an empty stomach.

    Q: I have metal fillings in my mouth do I have to stay that way or can my teeth grow back. I heard that there are commercial mouthwashes that can grow teeth, but I want the natural way.

    A:

    The metal can be removed. However, it will take a very long time for the teeth to grow back or heal, but it can be done! A commercial mouthwash is unnatural and an unnatural thing cannot help the teeth grow back.

    Q: My two year-old son is not circumcised and his foreskin is not pulling back is there anything I can do to get his skin to stretch without getting him circumcised because I really don't want to do that. And are there any bath remedies to keeping it clean, right now I give him sea salt baths and thinking about using hydrogen peroxide. Also, It keeps getting red and swollen I gave him antibiotics because it hurts when he urinates. If you could, could you possibly recommend something I could get from a health food store I can't afford to cleanse his body right now.

    A:

    Don't act too fast; sometimes it takes a while before the skin begins to become elastic. The child is only 2. You can clean his foreskin with warm water, sea salt, and tea tree oil (5-8 drops in the bowl of water or bath water) and you can add 1 ounce of hydrogen peroxide if you like. If the skin is red and swollen it's inflamed. Start applying Dherbs.Com HEALING SKIN OIL and this should facilitate healing. Antibiotics are harming the child. He doesn't need antibiotics! Please read our article on "DANGERS OF ANTI-BIOTICS". He'll be alright!

    Q: I am 42 years old. My teeth are not the straightest, but they seem heathy an are white. The dentist recommended that I get braces or a visalign to straighten mainly the bottom teeth. He stated "As we age roots may get twisted and it could lead to problems." I have the 2 bottom canine, that are almost sideways. What would be your opinion be regarding correcting this based on possibilities?

    A:

    Great question! I would be able to answer better if I could actually see your teeth. The alignment of our canines protect all our other teeth. They are critical. Two things for sure happen when the canines come in rotated. One, they do not function fully and therefore all your other teeth can get unusual forces placed on them. We call these forces interferences. Secondly the root of the canine can end up very close to the root of the lateral next to it. When this occurs, bacteria can travel down the side of the tooth, under the gum and increase the possibility that you get bone loss between the two teeth (canine and lateral). The bone is very thin between those roots when the canine is rotated. Also, more plaque accumulates because it is often difficult to clean between the canine and lateral.

    These are the reasons I would suggest moving forward with braces if what I am describing pertains to you. I hope this makes sense.

    Thanks, DMO

    Q: My partner has a serious problem with his gums. He is only thirty three and he's losing most of his teeth. The dentist keeps removing them and he has some implants. What can he take to build his gums up and his teeth stop falling out?

    A: His body is most likely too acidic. He needs to drastically change his diet to more alkaline in order to start healing.

    Also, he should start by gargling with warm water, sea salt and hydrogen peroxide 2-3 times a day.

    An herbal toothpowder will also help him. A good toothpowder stops gums from bleeding!

    Q: My Dad is 90 and in a nursing home. He has been diagnosed with Papilloma in his mouth. He cannot wear his dentures and these wort like things are growing in his mouth. At this time it has not been cancerous. I believe a good cleansing would help him, but what can I get for them to give him there. I would have to get the Dr. there to allow the nurses to administer it to him. Also, I?ve you heard of the detoxification that is done by a foot cleansing, which is done by putting the feet in water with an electrical strip which has a mineral in the water that after about thirty minutes cleanses the body. I have had the experience and it is unbelievable what is removed from the body. My son, has liver was completely cleansed by this in three weeks. Do you think this might help Dad. I have been thinking about buying one of these machines and taking it there and trying it. If you have heard of this, can you recommend any one that is better than another. Also, any recommendations for herbs, etc. Thank you for any help you have for Dad. (He also has diabetes)

    A:

    Dad needs a serious cleansing! Especially his colon of which the mouth is connected as a part of the alimentary canal. If he has trouble swallowing capsules, our liquid Full Body Cleanse would be ideal for him (in addition to some of our new great teas).

    The foot detox works wonders. This is a powerful way to detox the body.

I brush them several times a day and I even carry my toothbrush with me sometimes.

    Q: My girlfriend is from Indonesia and received the anti biotic, Tetracycline, when she was about 3 years old. When her adult teeth came in, they were grey in color. I think she has only one cavity and she is 33, so her teeth seem to be strong, just an unattractive color. She has tried tooth whitening with no good results. It seems that they turned grey from the inside out. Is there anything natural that she can do to restore the white color that antibiotics robbed her teeth of?

    A:

    She has to reverse the damage of antibiotics by cleansing constantly to the duration contrasted with how long she took antibiotics. It's the only way since the problem originates from the inside out.

    Q: During a dental check-up today, my 6 year old son was given a shot to have a minor extraction and then prescribed Gel-Kam (0.4% stable stannous fluoride preventive treatment gel) to be placed on a few of his teeth. They warned me not to let him swallow it and not allow him to eat or drink anything for at least 1/2 hour after using it. He is scheduled to return next week Thursday. Do you have any suggestions/alternatives for fluoride treatment? I have no intention of putting the Gel-Kam in his mouth. Further, can you suggest a website where I can find recipes for wholesome lunches for him? We presently reside in Turks & Caicos Islands located in the Caribbean and getting organic is little to nothing over here.

    A:

    Give your son CARBON (Activated Charcoal). Mix half a teaspoon in water and stir well. This product will remove the poisonous fluoride.
