Detoxing The Mouth With Coconut Pulling
Ever since contracting Lyme disease more than 4 years ago, my teeth have been on an accelerated path of tooth decay. I have never had very good teeth but then the Lyme spirochete moved into my mouth. The mandible joint was attacked and the TMJ became so extreme that I had to go on a liquid diet because I could not open my mouth wide enough to get anything in, plus I couldn't bite down without an excrutiating pain in that joint. It was one of the worst cases my dentist had ever seen and it took months to release the locked joint.
I have lived with the idea that it is just a matter of time before the cracks in my teeth get bad enough for more dental intervention. In this day and age of toxins reported from dental work, this offers me no comfort.
In the last year, I have had a back molar pulled and another one is capped. I can't stand the idea that one day I am headed for a full on root canal...so I am now using the 'Coconut Pulling' method to resurrect this dying mouth of mine.
Coconut oil is an amazing medicine, I love it as a body moisturizer and it is great for cooking. (Read Ray Peat about the misinformation on whether coconut oil is safe to digest).
The following comes from the on-line publication series on Feb 10, 2003 called The Hindu Business Line:
A Dr F. Karsch examined the gargled milk-white oil under a microscope with 600 magnification, he saw live organisms swimming in it. It's poisonous, so never swallow it, he warns. These poisons are bacteria-embryos, which, if not eliminated, cause diseases. Apparently, Dr Karsch cured his own chronic blood disease and 15-year-old arthritis with this detox technique.
The first sign of improvement is in the teeth, they become firm and white, he says.
Other healing indications: fresh, relaxed feeling on waking up, disappearing dark pouches below the eyes, a new appetite and energy, better memory and deep sleep.
Tooth decay is an expensive problem and there are so few dentists that are practicing with a wholistic awareness. Dental offices are still pusing floride treatments on children.
Today we have the research linking floride to lower IQs and weaker bones for women.
How Do You Do It?
It is amazingly easy...
Rinse and swish the oil through your teeth and gums very thoroughly with a tablespoon of coconut oil. Do it slowly for 15-20 minutes, followed by brushing, up to three times a day. It's best to do on an empty stomach and you will see results.
Incorporating it into your morning or evening shower is an easy way to time slot this in as well.
Months ago I had a tooth that was complaining really painfully...I started Coconut Pulling and it subsided within days!
Today, that tooth is still is fine. I know it had some decay occuring and yet it has stopped hurting and is not sensitive to anything.
I also just bought an oral irrigation system to use with Sea Salt as part of my dental hygiene and detox program. I have never been a fan of going to the dentist. It always felt so invasive and now we have the reports on the toxins in the dental sealants and materials used during any type of tooth work.
