A toothcare protocol

I have been refining my toothcare protocol.  This is where I have arrived thus far:

1.  Floss every day.  Experiment with different brands and types of dental floss.  But, be consistent.  There is nothing that irritates me more (well, I might be exaggerating there) than “alternative” toothcare protocols that omit flossing.  It is perhaps even more important than brushing.  Bacteria looooove little tight, dark spaces.

2.  Brush with twice a day ToothSoap.  Go on, google it, read their spiel then come back.  This product works wonders.

3.  Add tumeric to your ToothSoap at least once a day.   This is my latest refinement.  Tumeric is a potent anti-inflammatory.  It helps heal wounds and disinfect.  It removes stains from tooth enamel. When I started using tumeric, my teeth ached right down to the roots.  That might not sound like much of a recommendation.  But I am a true believer in Naturophathy and I just knew that ache meant my teeth and mouth were cleaning themselves to the very core. Since then, there is a palpable and discernible change in the feeling of my gums.  They just feel tighter, smoother and less irritated.

4.  Rinse with a solution of Magnesium Chloride and water.  Take a 200mL glass bottle.  Add 2-3 tsp McgCl2 salts and fill with filtered water. After brushing, swish a little swill round the mouth for 30 seconds before swallowing.

5.  If you notice your mouth is dry – mine dries due to seasonal alleriges provoking mouth-breathing (yuck) – put some coconut oil (pure, food grade) in your mouth and swill around before swallowing.  DIY lubrication, and coconut oil is proven to fight tooth decay.

Happy smiling!
