Benefits of oil pulling

The purpose of oil pulling is to get rid of the oil-soluble toxins in the body’.

Toxins and bacteria in the body build up in the mouth and that swishing or holding oil in the mouth will draw out these impurities or wash them from the mouth. Once the swishing is complete, the oil is spit out into a sink or trash basket.

Oil pulling is also used for dental purposes. Many claim that it strengthens gums, whitens teeth and eliminates plaque.

 

The ADA does not recommend oil pulling as either a supplementary oral hygiene practice, or as a replacement for standard oral health behaviors due to limited studies on the subject.

What type of oil should I use?

Original practitioners of oil pulling used sunflower and sesame oils.

The top two oils were sesame and coconut. Both oils work great but, as you dig deeper with regards to the desired outcome, the coconut oil ranks supreme.  Sesame oil provides omega 6 but, on a regular we obtain omega 6 fats.  Coconut oil does more, both as anti-bacterial and anti-viral qualifying this oil a better fit for oral hygiene.  It is a fact that coconut oil mixed with sodium bicarbonate (Baking Soda) makes for powerful toothpaste and also strengthens teeth against decay.  Research was conducted at the

Once you have reached the 15-20 minute mark be sure to spit the oil into the waste basket to prevent clogged drainage.

Step 3:  Rinse your mouth well with warm water and salt to remove excess oil that may still linger in your mouth.  Once you have rinsed, brush your teeth as you normally would and rinse a second time.

Dry Brush Skincare Tip of The Day. PSD

A dry brush exfoliation can be done in the morning before you shower, It eliminates dead skin cells and allows the skin to detox (skin is the largest organ of elimination).

Ladies and Gentlemen; a good dry brush exfoliation also improves lymph and blood circulation and decreases puffiness by, moving lymph fluid to the lymph nodes eliminating waist.  The human body naturally does this, but dry brushing speeds up the process and at the same time boosts circulation, delivering oxygenated blood to the skin and other organs, which helps them do their job more effectively.  The extra benefit is that the gentle pressure is calming the nervous system.  When choosing your brush pick softly, you’ll need a nice soft natural bristle.  I recommend that you start with the feet and work your way up the body.
