On Oil Pulling & Changing Habits

20131209-144001.jpg

I am becoming a believer in oil pulling!

In three days of daily sessions, although nowhere near 20 mins, and about three months of irregular sessions (every few days):

1) My teeth are definitely whiter and getting whiter. I have noticed a clear difference, especially over the last few days.

My teeth feel sooooo silky smooth… It’s amazing!

2) Since I was a little girl I have only been able to breathe through one nostril. A few days ago, after oil pulling for the first time in a few weeks as I had just got a fresh bottle of coconut oil, I woke up the next day able to breathe DEEPLY through both nostrils for the first time in my life.

And at no point have I gone back to single nostril breathing either. It’s pretty awesome to find out my body can do something I didn’t know it could.

3) I am smoking less.

4) Dayo and I just did our first joint oil pull today, and the difference in his teeth was INSTANT!!! It was shocking… I thought it would be good for him because usually I get frustrated with him as he does such a sloppy job of brushing his teeth if I don’t stand over him.

So ummm… On the whole, I am convinced! Dayo liked it–after protesting at first–he told me he wanted to do it again before he goes to sleep.

How cool is that?

I am getting used to the daily thing… I just love the after feeling after brushing. I am going to experiment with a recipe for homemade toothpaste too.

I find that faster forty approaches, the more I am focussing on my own self-care. I feel like I have ignored it for so long, it really is time for me to really spend time doing more natural, holistic things to clear my entire matrix of gunk.

The fact I can get Dayo into such a good habit is a good thing too.
