Oil pulling is the practice of “pulling” oil through your teeth and gums. It is centuries old. Not only does it improve your oral health it detoxifies and heals your whole body. Here’s the link to Amazon: for Dr. Bruce Fife’s book, Oil Pulling Therapy amzn.to/1IyaorN On an empty stomach put 1-2 teaspoons of coconut oil in your mouth and swish it around for 15-20 minutes then spit it out in the trash. DON’T SWALLOW THE OIL AFTER PULLING !!!! Rinse your mouth out with water and spit this out in the sink. The best time to do this is first thing in the morning. Once you have done this go ahead and brush your teeth. This really works. I went to my dentist for my six month cleaning and he remarked that I hardly had any tartar to clean. My teeth were clean and my gums looked great. You can do this before each meal if you want. Just have an empty stomach. Note that the oil will be solid in cooler temps and a clear liquid in warmer temps.
Our mouths reflect the health inside our bodies. The mouth is part of the digestive tract. Your mouth can reveal evidence of chronic illness. Disease influences the type of bacteria that grow in the mouth. There are millions of bacteria in your mouth feeding on what you just ate. They thrive on a diet of sugar and carbohydrates. The bacteria releases its acid waste into your mouth which you then swallow. This acid erodes the enamel and causes tooth decay. No matter how often you brush your teeth this has only a minimal effect on reducing the bacteria population. Saliva contains antibodies that help control certain pathogenic organisms but they don’t kill all of them. Bacteria also causes bad breath.
All disease starts in the mouth. Hundreds of billions of microscopic organisms inhabit our mouths and digestive tracts. There are bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. Some are beneficial and some are not. Our mouths provide an easy entryway into the bloodstream. This can lead to a multitude of health problems.

Most commercial toothpaste contains fluoride ( which has health risks) and various chemicals. The abrasive action of the toothbrush alone is adequate enough to scour off dental plaque. You don’t need commercial toothpaste.
Make your own toothpaste. From Bruce Fife’s book Oil Pulling Therapy:
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 tablespoon vegetable glycerin
2-4 drops peppermint oil
½ teaspoon xylitol (optional)
Mix it all together and put into a small storage container with a lid. It will look liquidly. No need to refrigerate.
Baking soda neutralizes acids and maintains proper ph. The glycerin holds the other ingredients together and tones down the salty taste of the baking soda. Amazon has the ingredients you’ll need.
Which brings me to the topic of Fluoride. Make sure your drinking water does not contain fluoride. This causes all kinds of health problems. Reverse osmosis filtered water is a better choice than tap water.
We bought five – five gallon water jugs that have a spigot.
You don’t need to flip over the water jug onto a stand you just sit it on your kitchen counter next to the sink. Use for drinking and cooking. We get our water from a store that has several large tanks that treat the water. Its only 25 cents per 5 gal jug. Cut down on water bottle waste and save money. You don’t need a water delivery service. Just go pick up your own water when you need it. Look in the phone book under reverse osmosis water to find a location that sells this water.
