Brushing with Baking Soda

Baking soda removes plaque, helping to prevent tooth decay and to freshen the breath. As one of the least expensive substances on the market, using baking soda is a great way to avoid spending money on commercial teeth whitening kits or thousands of dollars on in-office whitening treatments.

How to Brush with Baking Soda
Cleaning your teeth with baking soda is as easy as it is with regular toothpaste. Just dampen your toothbrush and dip it into a small pile of baking soda, making sure to cover all the bristles.

Brush your teeth for two minutes, making sure to reach each and every tooth.

Once you are done with this thorough brushing, spit out the excess baking soda and then rinse your mouth with water. If you feel a burning or tingling sensation, this is normal as the baking soda performs its cleaning action.

Oil Pulling

by Bruce Fife

Oil pulling is incredibly effective in brightening teeth, healing gums, preventing bad breath, quenching inflammation, and healing oral infections. It is also effective in treating many systemic conditions throughout the body.

The oil acts like a cleanser. When you put it in your mouth and work it around your teeth and gums it “pulls” out bacteria and other debris. It acts much like the oil you put in your car engine. The oil picks up dirt and grime. When you drain the oil, it pulls out the dirt and grime with it, leaving the engine relatively clean. Consequently, the engine runs smoother and lasts longer. Likewise, when we expel harmful substances from our bodies our health is improved and we run smoother and last longer.

As simple as it is, oil pulling has a very powerful detoxifying effect. Our mouths are the home to billions of bacteria, viruses, fungi and other parasites and their toxins. Candida and Streptococcus are common residents in our mouths. It is these types of germs and their toxic waste products that cause gum disease and tooth decay and contribute to many other health problems including arthritis and heart disease. Our immune system is constantly fighting these troublemakers. If our immune system becomes overloaded or burdened by excessive stress, poor diet, environmental toxins and such, these organisms can spread throughout the body causing secondary infections and chronic inflammation, leading to any number of health problems.

Directions:
Place virgin unrefined coconut oil in a small plastic bag and place the bag in a hot cup of water for 1 minute to warm. When it turns to a liquid it’s ready. Swish oil in your mouth for a couple minutes and spit out.
