When I turned 30, I decided that now was the time and got some dental work done. I can't say I was happy about getting braces (because hell they hurt and the total cost of the whole process was the same as a car) but it was worth it... 100%.
So now I was on the lookout for natural products to keep them in tip top shape and luckily Evolution Organics can supply my constant demand in all natural toothpaste, dental floss, mouthwash and now we also sell Dr Mercola Coconut Oil Oral Rinse... Brilliant!
Whether you use Coconut Oil Oral Rinse for “pulling” or for just a quick mouth freshener when you’re short on time, it deserves a key spot in your overall detoxification program. Many people don’t realise that their mouth serves an important role in their bodies’ waste removal system and overall detoxification - exactly what I was looking for.
Proper "oil pulling" involves the swishing and "chewing" of coconut oil in your mouth for 15-20 minutes. This allows the oil to spread through your teeth and into your gum spaces and pockets for an optimal cleanse. As this should be done once a week I thought it was going to be easy... not so. I managed just under 5 minutes the first time and it took me a few more tries to get to 15 minutes. It's a bit tiring but totally worth it. To help get the right amount of time try doing oil pulling when you are checking your emails, doing your morning stretches or whilst taking your shower or getting ready in the morning.
Coconut oil by itself can be chunky when temperatures fall and not always a pleasant experience when placed directly in your mouth, to make sure this is not the case with this product, they have combined Fair Trade Certified Organic Coconut Oil with its valuable component, MCT oil, to create the perfect consistency oil for pulling. Brilliant!
In addition to waste removal, here’s what else oil pulling can potentially do for you:
Reduce normal plaque accumulation in your mouth
Support the health of your gums
Purify and freshen your breath as effectively as mouthwash
Support your oral health through its mechanical cleansing action
To sum this up, Dr Mercola has done is again, created a totally awesome effective product to increase your overall health, the natural way. More information on Dr Mercola Coconut Oil Oral Rinse on the website HERE.
