The step-by-step holistic approach to healing your mouth fast
NaturalNews has it that taking a holistic approach to preventing gum disease and cavities will yield you fast results.
Michael Edwards, the founder, owner, editor-in-chief, and … as he says, janitor of NaturalNews.com says that the American diet, being highly acidic, is high in inflammatory fats and sugar.
Here is Edward’s step-by-step dos and don’t’s to healing your mouth
1.Watch What You Put In Your Mouth
Avoid These Foods
♦ Refined Foods
♦ Acidic Foods
♦ Processed, prepackaged foods
But Eat These Foods
♦ More vegetables than fruits
♦ Brown rice
♦ Sprouted legumes
♦ Vegetable stir frys,
♦ Raw, fresh, organic produce
2. Balance the Gut
It is extremely difficult to have good oral health and poor gut health. Anyone with serious mouth problems should consider a detoxification protocol that repairs the gut, kills Candida and other parasites, and balances the gut microbes. Good health starts in the gut, and so does bad health.
3. Stop Smoking
If you want to have a healthy mouth, but you continue to smoke regularly, the best you can hope for with this regimen is for things to stay the same and not get worse.

4. Lose the Toxic Toothpaste and Mouthwash
Check the label to make sure they do not contain any of the following ingredients: Sodium laurel sulfate (SLS), triclosan, artificial colors, flavors, or anything artificial, hydrated silica, alcohol.
5. Floss Every Day, and Floss Correctly
Most people do not floss correctly, if at all. Flossing is imperative for anyone with gingivitis because the sides of the teeth need to be cleaned so food debris doesn’t feed the bacteria.
6. Brush your Teeth with your own Toothpaste
Brush your teeth three times a day with the following recipe.
7. Oil Pulling
Oil pulling is a traditional Ayurvedic method of oral care that involves swishing oil around in your mouth for 15-20 minutes. Traditionally, sesame oil was used, but these days coconut oil is more often recommended.
To increase the potency of this protocol, use essential oils, such as peppermint, cinnamon, or clove.
Swish the oil around in your mouth (like you would with mouthwash) and pull through the teeth, for 15 to 20 minutes. Don’t swish hard, or your cheeks will get sore very quickly.
Spit it out! Do not swallow it.
Note: Do not spit into the sink, spit it into a container or toilet.
