Oil Pulling – A Daily Healthy Habit.

A few months ago a girlfriend Brooke Maud) introduced me to oil pulling. This is now a daily healthy habit that I do every morning as soon as I get out of bed.
Oil pulling is an age-old remedy that uses natural substances to clean and detoxify teeth and gums. It has the added effect of whitening teeth naturally and evidence even shows that it is beneficial in improving gums and removing harmful bacteria! The basic idea is that oil is swished in the mouth for a short time (15 – 20 mins) each day and that this action helps improve oral health.
When oil pulling, the oils (especially oils with naturally antibacterial properties) bind to the biofilm, or plaque, on the teeth and reduce the number of bacteria in the mouth. Streptococcus Mutans is one of the bacteria that is prominent in the mouth and it has been studied for its role in tooth decay and gum disease. Oil pulling has been shown to reduce the number of Streptococcus Mutans bacteria in the mouth, especially when done with coconut oil.
I start my morning with scraping any bacteria off my tongue and use a teaspoon of coconut oil and swish it around in my mouth for the first 20 mins. I then spit it into the bin and wash my mouth out with warm water.

The Apple Does Not Fall Far From the Tree

Tonight I am running around madly helping Riley to get organised for his first day back at Luther College for Year 12 Jumpstart, after a 14 hour day at work. Of course Riley has been home for the past week not doing too much.
I get annoyed with both children for leaving things to the last minute but they have learned from the master.
It’s not about what i say to them it is about what they see me do.
