Dental Health with Oil Swishing

By Bruce Fife, N.D., Vol. 17, No. 6.

Good news! You can now say “good-bye” to tooth decay, gum disease, bad breath, loose teeth, and bleeding and receding gums, and say “hello” to a bright white smile and healthy pink gums.

How is this possible? With coconut oil! 
Believe it or not, a spoonful of coconut oil can clean your teeth more thoroughly than brushing, flossing, and gargling with antiseptic mouthwash. In addition, it will help prevent tooth decay better than fluoride, without the toxic side effects.

Some people brush their teeth using coconut oil, but I’m not talking about using coconut oil as a replacement for toothpaste. I’m talking about a whole new way to keep your teeth white and your breath fresh, and prevent tooth decay and gum disease. The method I’m referring to is called oil pulling. Never heard of it? Well, it’s about time you had.

If you follow the suggestions [see full article], when you reach the age of 65, or 75, or even 105, you will continue to enjoy eating the foods you love using all of the teeth you currently have. If you teach these principles to your children, they will buck the trend in dental health and grow to adulthood retaining all their teeth, just as nature intended.” ?
