Michael Edwards, the founder, owner, editor-in-chief, and … as he says, janitor of says that the American diet, being highly acidic, is high in inflammatory fats and sugar.

I believe the same can be said for the Malaysian diet, what with our penchant for sambal belacan, spice, sugar and everything nice and savoury.120_557

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.
