Oil Pulling with Coconut Oil for Dental Health

Coconut Oil For Oil Pulling Oil Pulling with Coconut Oil for Dental Health

[Health Impact News] A study was published in India recently comparing the effectiveness of “oil pulling” versus chlorhexidine mouthwash in preventing bad breath and the organisms that cause it. It was a small sample size for a study, but oil pulling was more effective than the chlorhexidine mouthwash when measuring marginal gingival index, plaque index, and organoleptic breath assessment. The study notes that “Oil pulling therapy has been used extensively as a traditional Indian folk remedy for many years for strengthening teeth, gums, and jaws and to prevent decay, oral malodor, bleeding gums and dryness of throat, and cracked lips.” Oil pulling is gargling and swishing oil around in your mouth to clean your gums and teeth.

The oil used in this study was sesame oil. However, we have seen many testimonies about how coconut oil is even more effective, and also testimonials about positive results that exceed just oral health when using coconut oil for oil pulling. Here are some samples from the Coconut Diet Forums:

I have done the antibiotic/chlorohex. thing for my abscess and dental problems, they ALWAYS came back. I have not had ONE since I started the ‘oil pulling’ with coconut oil. My tooth does not need a root canal anymore-my dentist aggreed that my gum and dental problems have gone way down since I started-with no drugs! One could say that it must be the placebo effect-but I don’t think so. I have also spread the word with many of my own friends and family-it’s also worked for them…..whiter, shinier teeth too! If it’s working so amazingly for myself and people I care about-I’d much rather put something from nature in my body instead of harsh drugs that don’t work anyways. Antibiotics are part of what I beleive has caused my systemic yeast problems anyways-which the coconut oil is working for too. – Lisa

I found an article on “oil pulling” with Virgin Coconut Oil, and started doing that. After just 2 or 3 times I noticed my teeth were whiter. I also liked how my mouth felt after “pulling”. – Laura

I am not sure about coconut oil for your gum problems, but I DO know that oil pulling would definitely help. Do a search on oil pulling and you will get all kinds of info. Our dentist says that our teeth and gums have never looked so good. My husband never flosses because his teeth are so close together that it is difficult and he had the start of gum disease. We have been oil pulling for probably 1 1/2 years and our dentist said my husbands mouth looks great. I know the dentist doesn’t understand how or why it works and probably doesn’t care to but he did have to say to keep it up because it was working. – Anita

Definitely look up ‘oil pulling’ as per Carol……I’ve posted a few notes on here on the subject. VIRGIN COCONUT OIL WILL HELP, IF NOT CURE IT! It is such an amazing gift from nature!…I can’t say enough about it. I have been enduring major dental problems in the last few years (ie abscesses, cavities, gingivitis, and enflamed taste buds). I tried all the conventional/Western remedies (anitibiotics, etc)-NOTHING WORKED! My friend suggested oil pulling….I have to be honest, when I first heard about it, I thought, YEAH RIGHT! I was wrong, it works like a charm. Now I use it as a preventive by gargling with it once or twice a week. Most of my dental problems are under control, my daughter and Dad haven’t had it since I started them on it. – Lisa

Here are some more testimonies from our Coconut Health Facebook Page:

I’m oil pulling right now with coconut oil. My gums are healthier than they have ever been, my teeth are whiter and my breath is awesome. It even helped me quit smoking. I love it. - Allison

I oil pull with coconut and I love it, my teeth feel like I have had a cleaning at the dentist, I also had a tooth that was bothing me a bit that no longer hurts. Love it! - Aimee

Yes! Just had a dental checkup and the hygienist had difficulty finding any placque. I use coconut oil and my teeth are white without all those harsh chemicals. - Darleen

In this video Bonnie talks about her experiences in oil pulling with coconut oil, and shows how she does it:

By swishing and pulling the oil through the teeth and around the mouth, the toxins, bacteria & latent infections are pulled out and into the oil. We harbor an unbelievable amount of toxins in our mouth and because of that, our immune systems are kept quite busy in that region. When we eliminate that energy drain by oil pulling, our immune system can then focus on other things. My immune system is compromised. I have an auto immune disease. By doing oil pulling, I feel so much better in the mornings, especially sinus and congestion. I have not had a cold or cough in years. I feel the coconut oil is a healthy oil to have. - Bonnie

Woman Battles Brain Cancer Using Low-Carb Ketogenic Diet Without Chemo

Woman Battles Brain Cancer Using Low-Carb Ketogenic Diet Without Chemo

Alix Hayden has brain cancer, but instead of undergoing surgery and grueling chemotherapy, she’s fighting it with the low-carb, high-fat ketogenic diet and has been doing great so far.

Some of the most exciting research to come out in the past few years regarding the high-fat low-carb ketogenic diet has been in the area of cancer treatment. The results are so promising that new “ketone” drugs are in the pipeline.

The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, low-carb, and moderate-protein diet that was first developed in the 1920s at John Hopkins hospital to treat epilepsy. Some children with seizures saw great success on the diet, often where drugs had failed.

Today, the ketogenic diet principles, particularly using coconut oil as the main fat, are being used to treat neurological diseases such as Alzhemier’s, as well as successfully treating cancer.

Why Coconut Oil Is A Godsend For Female Travelers

Why Coconut Oil Is A Godsend For Female Travelers

I see more and more people online chatting about the benefits of coconut oil for the body. I have found that I have fallen in love more and more while I travel. Having just a backpack full of stuff for a year long trip is hard, especially for a female traveler. In my quest to bring the amount of stuff down in my backpack, I have stumbled upon coconut oil as the ultimate savior. I list below the different ways in which I use coconut oil while travelling. Because of its multi-purpose quality, I am able to have a toiletries bag that is absolutely tiny and contains only four items.

What Type of Coconut Oil is Best? How to Choose a Coconut Oil

What Type of Coconut Oil is Best? How to Choose a Coconut Oil

When my wife and I shipped the first “virgin coconut oil” from the Philippines into the U.S. back in 2001, there were only two other commercially available coconut oils being sold as edible oils in the U.S. market. Coconut oil was certainly not popular 13 years ago and there were few choices. If you were using coconut oil as dietary oil back then, chances are you were getting your information about fats and oils from Dr. Mary Enig. Many of her writings have been featured in the Weston A. Price Foundation over the years.

Today at the beginning of 2014, one has a plethora of choices when it comes to purchasing coconut oil. So what I am going to do in this article is give you an insider view of the current market, without mentioning any specific brands. Not all coconut oils are produced the same way and the type of coconut oil you purchase will depend on what you plan to do with it.

But first, in order to make an intelligent decision about which coconut oil best suits your needs, you need to understand what is currently in the market, and how they differ.

Woman Writes Book on Mother’s Recovery from Alzheimer’s After Starting Coconut Oil

Woman Writes Book on Mother’s Recovery from Alzheimer’s After Starting Coconut Oil

My book is called ‘Thoughts of Yesterday.’ The reason I gave my book this title is because when Mammy was at her worst with Alzheimer’s, she could still remember her first day at school, but her thoughts of yesterday were gone. Her condition deteriorated quite rapidly, as we were advised it would. She had several periods of aggression which proved very difficult to manage and ultimately sedatives were prescribed to ease the symptoms. She had repeated kidney infections, one of which resulted in her being rushed to hospital by ambulance.

Since taking the coconut oil, she has had NO periods of aggression whatsoever, and her kidney infections have become much less frequent. As a result of this, she has not had any sedatives over the last year, fewer antibiotics and also her blood pressure is perfect.

Overall, her mood has much improved, she engages better in conversation and is very happy in herself. I have no doubt that if we had not found out about coconut oil, my mother would be in a home by now.
