O is For Oil Pulling
A-Z Challenge is
Aging into Longevity
When you begin to
get a little long in
the tooth, what about
those pearlies that
used to bedazzle
every time you opened
your mouth. Oh boy,
now when you smile
do you say a tiny prayer that your dentures won't fall
Dentistry has failed us and tricked us into a life of
root canals, crowns and implants. If you've fallen
into that trap, you are no doubt walking around
with the economic equivalent of a Maserati in your mouth.
If you are still fighting to save your teeth, (like
I am) here is some hope and it's called "oil pulling."
It is simply swishing coconut oil around in your
mouth, perhaps twice a day. I do it but dang, I'm
not consistent with it and I've only myself to blame.
People who do it with regularity, swear by it.
A good book to read, "Cure Tooth Decay" by
Rameil Nagel. I wish I had read it when I
was younger, but it wasn't written yet. Ha
Some of you younger people still have a
chance to save all your teeth.
But...never ever get a root canal.
It sounds like I'm bashing dentists but they were/are
only doing the available procedures that have
been available and taught to them. Now there is
care for teeth that involves healthy, holistic dentistry.
Right now I'm going through the uncertainty
of a root canal gone-bad. I may have to lose
my first tooth. Thanks root canal. Years
ago they sure saw me coming.
