4 Steps for the Best Day, and Life – Part II

We’ve already begun our day like a cat in Part I. Now we move on to the next step for giving ourselves the best possible start to the day,

Step 2. Oil pulling
Let’s face it; your mouth may not be delightful first thing in the morning. After snoring away the night, bacteria can gather in the mouth. An ancient Ayurvedic practice gaining a lot of popularity, oil pulling, is a great way to rid your mouth of that nasty bacterium without harming the beneficial stuff.Image

Using 1 Tbsp of unrefined coconut oil, swoosh around for about 20 minutes, spit into a garbage can, and rinse with warm water. There are two big DON’TS: 1. don’t swallow the oil. It has just pulled all of the undesirable bacteria out; don’t send it down the digestive tract, and 2. Don’t spit the oil in the sink; unless you want to deal with clogged pipes in the near future.

This practice is hailed for improving oral health, sinuses, allergies, skin, and even autoimmune disorders to name a few. Many have written about the improvements they’ve experienced, and there are books available to learn more. I can personally say I’ve noticed that it removes sinus drainage, helps with recessed gums, skin issues, and gives you way whiter teeth, baby.
