Anyone heard of this ???
, I have become a great advocate of oil pulling using coconut oil.
I started two months ago and never have I felt my mouth to be fresher.
The concept is that the greatest majority of bacteria enter our system through our mouths.
When one does ‘oil pulling therapy’, one swishes a small scoop of coconut oil in one’s mouth for 20 minutes every morning.
This is done before eating breakfast or anything else as to prevent the bacteria that has been growing inside our mouths overnight ending up in our system.
The bacteria attaches itself to the oil and is discarded when one spits it all out.
As a result, it contributes to not only healthy gum and teeth but also to a better well being for less nasty bacteria in the system.
Oil pulling has been around for over 2700 years ago.
Should you be interested, Dr Bruce Fife has written some very interesting books about the miracles of coconut oil.
Its properties and benefits are countless.
In the UK, I have found it easy to obtain coconut oil.
