Essential Oils – http://www.mydoterra.com/297217/
For this Saturday Strategy, I’m going to show you how to make your very own toothpaste. In this very episode, I’ll also bring you to another secret that people all over the globe are using – oil pulling.
We’re all aware that the mouth is the entry point of many dangers towards our body. Apparently, fluoride is one of them and it can do so much with our bodies. It can damage fertility, destroy bones and cause early puberty in children, which is why all European countries banned water fluoridation. And many other countries are joining the bandwagon.
Yet, it seems that fluoride does not leave us. It can be found in almost all of the food and drinks that we take. This is not to mention that majority of American cities have fluoridated water. And what we have to do is to mitigate the risk by minimizing fluoride sources in our lifestyle.
Toothpaste is one of the sources of fluoride in human body. Now what we will do is address this concern by coming up with our own homemade toothpaste. For this goal, we will be needing the following ingredients: coconut oil, baking soda and essential oil.
Classified as a superfood, coconut oil has been at the forefront of medicinal studies for its acclaimed healing properties.
Coconut oil has a unique combination of fatty acids that has a lot of medicinal properties. One of which is boosting brain function which is ultimately helpful for people with Alzheimer’s disease. These same fatty acids are converted into ketones, which can reduce the occurrence of seizures. Coconut oil can increase your energy expenditure, which helps you burn more fat, especially the fats that can be found in your abdominal activity.
The lauric acid in coconut oil can help you fight against infections because it can kill bacteria, viruses and fungi. Coconut oil can also improve blood cholesterol levels and fight off heart diseases.
These are some of the reasons why people who eat a lot of coconut, like the Kitavans, are some of the healthiest people on Earth.
Baking soda’s mild antiseptic properties kill some kinds of parasites, fungi, and mold. Because of this, applying baking soda to your toothbrush disinfects the brush and cleans your teeth.
Baking soda can promote a more alkaline PH balance in the body, which reverses acidity. Acidity is necessary for effective digestion of food, but an overall alkaline PH in your body is considered healthier, because many diseases thrive in an acidic environment. Diseases of a degenerative nature, like osteoporosis, arthritis, and cancer, have been associated with a chronically high acidity level in the body. The low cost of baking soda combined with its potential health benefits make a regimen of baking soda water drinking a worthwhile dietary change.
On top of all these benefits, simple household baking soda is incredibly versatile in helping to prevent kidney stones, gout, and urinary tract infections. Baking soda has also been linked with improved performance in serious athletes.
Baking soda is high in sodium. It’s not safe in high doses and shouldn’t be used for long periods of time. Individuals who have edema, liver disease, kidney disease, or high blood pressure shouldn’t use baking soda. Baking soda should be considered unsafe for nursing mothers or pregnant women unless advised by their doctors.
Essential oils are often used for natural beauty regimen. They are deemed as natural and chemical-free alternatives to everything from traditional cosmetics to potentially toxic fragrances. And across the times, they have been credited for treating problems including digestion issues and acne, increasing concentration, killing germs and much more.
