One of the healthiest and versatile we can use is the Coconut Oil. This oil is very beneficial and it is perfect for our dental health, also it can be used for other medical purposes as well.
Many specialists and doctors are thinking the same thing, that many deadly diseases such as, dementia, respiratory issues, strokes and heart diseases are caused mostly because of oral infections.
We use products to keep our oral cavity clear, but in fact the commercial products such as toothpastes, are in fact full of irritants and harmful chemicals. Most of those products are full of fluoride, triclosan, aspartame, and some sodium lauryl sulfate, and all of these ingredients or chemicals that we mentioned are highly toxic and dangerous for us.
The Sodium Lauryl Sulfate in fact is bad for our taste buds because it harms them and damages them, and the Triclosan is impeding the function of our endocrine glands.
Besides all of this, the Coconut Oil contains a lot of antibacterials, and it has the ability to eliminate bacteria very easy do to its digestive enzymes. Both children and adults mostly suffer from tooth decay, which in fact is caused by the so called streptococcus and “S mutans”.
The lead researcher of the Athlone Institute of Technlogy, is Dr. Damien Brady, and according to him the coconut oil is very good to get rid of the damage caused from the harmful chemicals, due to its adjusted enzymes, and the oil is able to provide positive effects in the case of reduced concentration.
Here is How You can Make a Toothpaste from Coconut Oil at Home:
- 2 to 3 tablespoons of Baking Soda
- Half a cup of Coconut Oil
- 15 to 30 drops of Essential Oil (thieves, peppermint or lemon)
Put all of the ingredients in a container that fits them, and mix well. Then when the mixture is well mixed, you can use it as a toothpaste instead of using the commercial one.
Also if you want to even keep the oral cavity cleaner, try one of the most ancient techniques which most people know as “oil pulling”. Just take a tablespoon of this oil and swish it in your mouth for about 20 minutes, and then spit it out. Then clean your teeth with water, or brush them with the homemade toothpaste!
Using this toothpaste and this old technique, your teeth will become whiter and the oral cavity will be bacteria-free at all times.
