People who practice the art of oil pulling for dental health have made a great report. A couple has experimented with oil puling, which is swishing it in their mouth for 20 minutes every day, and confirmed that their cavities have healed. They have used coconut oil, and claim that their teeth became greater than ever. They have also explained the theory.
The explanation is highly controversial since it is contrary to the orthodox dentistry practice, which thinks that the cavities are “permanent” and teeth do not regenerate.
The common dentistry uses fillings and other procedures for teeth reparation. We all are convinced that cavities are incurable and if you get one you need to go to the dentist often to get a filling or even undergo some more serious and more expensive procedure. We have lived with the thought that there is no way back when it comes to cavity and the only thing we can do is prevent our teeth from get in a worse condition.
Haven’t you all wondered at a point in your life, how only our teeth do not last for a lifetime? If broken bones can be mended and repaired, why damaged teeth cannot? Isn’t it weird and unusual? We all need to take a look at the bigger picture. Why can’t we make our teeth last for our entire life?
This is an excellent question and the answer should be sought in the pre-agricultural times, the time for which our bodies were evolutionary designed for. The tooth decay might be a consequence of the agricultural age.
Alan Ereira, an award winning film maker has made a great documentary where he posed the claim that perfect teeth can be achieved outside the area of dentistry. He has mentioned the Kogi Indian tribe living in Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Colombia. This ancient, remote tribe had perfect teeth, which was pretty surprising, since they had no connection to any dental treatment. None of their teeth was missing and they hadn’t even practicing any dental care. They were all so healthy and clean, and even their horses hadn’t flies on them, which wasastonishing for Alan.
Some theories have appeared then that the dental health of this tribe was a result of the wild environment where they find their food. Their food was not coming from mineral-depleted soil, like in the case of the agricultural environments. Then, an article appeared. It was the controversial article “The Wellness Mama” about the discoveries of Dr. Weston A. Price.
This article is a report of this doctor, who has traveled the world and has conducted some research about the dental health of people who do not have an access to dental care like the modern people do. Dr. Price has seen that many of these people have perfect teeth. This was also confirmed by other people who have traveled and investigated on the topic, confirming that people who do not have contact with the modern world have better teeth.
Dr. Price then has written that when the processed food people nowadays in the modern society consume was given to these people, their teeth started decaying. The conclusion of his research was that a natural diet, rich in bioavailable minerals is crucial for good dental health. Not only that, what is even more shocking is that this kind of diet is also capable of ceasing the tooth decay and healing the teeth. This is written in his book “Nutrition and Physical Degeneration”, a book with an excellent rating. The results of Price’s research indicate that the modern diet is responsible for the degenerative diseases.
This is an indication of the great flow I the methods that modern agriculture uses. Some microorganisms like lichens and other chelae the mineral from the soil and the rocks. On the other hand, the use of pesticides and other chemicals kill these crucial components and drain the mineral content from the soil. This is why non-organic products don’t have strong colors and flavors and have low nutritional value.
We all should think about what we consume and how it affects us and our health in general.
