There is a surprising report by people who practice the oil pulling for oral health. In other words, a couple experimented with oil pulling, i.e., they swished coconut oil in their mouths for 20 minutes on a daily basis and claimed that their cavities are healed.
In fact, their claims are greatly controversial as they directly affect the orthodox dentistry. However, it is still claimed by the orthodox dentistry that cavities are incurable and in such a case you should visit your dentist, which can cost you a lot of money. Unfortunately, it is believed by a lot of people.
It is logically, just think about it – Why there is a possibility for a broken bone to be healed and not for a damaged tooth? And why our teeth don’t last forever?
Actually, this can be a great question. Maybe, we try to find the answer of these questions in the kind of world whereby our bodies were evolutionarily designed for that of pre-agricultural times! The answer can really be deep and complex…
We are going to explain you why you should start considering that perfect teeth could be achieved outside the dentistry through the work by Alan Ereira, an award winning film maker who actually create an extraordinary documentary in the early 1990’s. Moreover, it speaks about one remote and ancient Kogi Indian tribe of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Colombia.
This man gave many lectures on this topic and he explained that all the members of this Indian tribe had perfect teeth. It is unbelievable because these people don’t actually use any dental treatment. In addition, Alan actually had expected all these people to have a lot of missing teeth, as they live without any dental care. Also, this man was surprised by the level of health and longevity of this tribe. He also stated an interesting finding about this Indian tribe that – Even their horses didn’t have flies on them.
It was concluded by some people that the extraordinary dental health of some tribal people is due to the wild environment from which they produce and consume their food. Furthermore, their diet is actually derived from mineral-rich soils, for instance those of the typical agricultural environment.
Also, there is an article by “The Wellness Mama”, which reports about the breakthrough dental discoveries of Dr. Weston A. Price. He was actually a dentist, who travelled all over the world and was focused on the investigation and comparison of the dental health of people who live in remote indigenous tribes.
What this dentist found out was surprising – some of these tribal people actually had perfect teeth.
However, the findings became even more interesting when this dentist start giving these tribal people modern processed foods, so a degeneration of their dental health was noticed.
These results led this man to a shocking conclusion – a natural diet abundant in bioavailable minerals is not only the key option for a perfect dental health, but the right diet should be implemented, and not only the tooth decay will be decreased, but it will be healed.
To sum up, this dentist is one of the many researchers whose findings show that degenerative disease is developed as a result of the modern diet.
It is considered that the technique of oil pulling can give you similar results when it comes to cleansing and re-mineralizing your teeth. But, of course, there is a need for more studies to be conducted on this matter.
