A Dirty Mouth: Why Oil Pulling Is More Important Than You Think

Continuing our important series with wellness expert Elissa Goodman, we’re talking all about a topic we’ve never touched on so specifically before: mouth bacteria (gross, right?). We’re shocked to hear how closely oral health is related to some very important health issues. Just read the quote from Dr. Joseph Mercola below.

“Studies unequivocally show that bacterial imbalances and dysbiosis in your mouth can contribute to inflammation in your body and activate cancer genes.”Goodman is shedding some light on this very important topic and recommending six valuable action steps we think you’ll find illuminating. Read them through and then, like we’ve done, share this article with just about everyone you know…

Your mouth is a breeding ground for bacteria. A toxic mouth taxes your immune system and causes inflammation, keeping your body from producing healthy cells, creating an environment ripe for breeding cancerous tumors. It is imperative that your immune system work at its max just to counteract the toxicity in the air, water and food supply. By using the solutions below, you can clear the harmful bacteria from your mouth so your body can focus on keeping you cancer and disease free.

6 Healing Solutions To Beat Mouth Bacteria

Try Oil Pulling...

…by swishing 1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil in your mouth for 15 minutes daily. This ancient Ayurvedic technique is extremely effective in reducing bacteria in your mouth.

Soak your toothbrush…

…in hydrogen peroxide for 10 minutes at least once per week. Don’t store it in a covered container because it needs to thoroughly dry. Replace it at least every 3-4 months.

Floss Daily...

…to keep bacteria away from your gums and teeth. Tartar builds up much easier around the gumline and this buildup can lead to severe inflammation. Flossing literally takes less than one minute a day and can greatly reduce health risks.

Get Your Fillings Checked...

…by consulting with a biological dentist on whether your fillings are toxic. Mercury fillings should be replaced with composite or porcelain.

Think Twice...

…before opting for a root canal. 97% of terminal cancer patients previously had a root canal procedure (Dr. Mercola 2/1812). During a root canal, there is no way to sterilize your tooth; after the root canal, dangerous bacteria hide out in the tooth and are unreachable with antibiotics. There is no other medical practice that permits leaving a dead body part inside your body, because it triggers your immune system to attack. Check out a resourceful book called Root Canal Cover-Up by George Meinig DDS FACD.

Don’t Be So Quick...

…to pull out your wisdom teeth. The dentist often fails to remove all of the connective tissue from the socket. This is what leads to cavitations. Cavitations are bony holes almost always (4,999 out of a measured 5,000) left after extraction of wisdom teeth. The sockets rarely heal and become lined with pathogenic anaerobic bacteria.

  1. Ok, but if your dentist says you need a root canal, what then? Are there other options?

    Morgan | 01.27.2015 | Reply
    • Hi Morgan, the best thing to do would be to get a second opinion. There are different techniques used by dentists for determining the need of a root canal, and many holistic-aligned dentists can be more optimistic about saving a tooth and avoiding a root canal. Secondly, if you do get a root canal, try to get it done by a dentist that uses dental lasers (to properly disinfect the area). As for oil pulling, it is helpful and definitely start using the technique – it cannot hurt. You may also look into using neem oil and neem bark directly on the gum of the tooth. Neem has helped in many cases similar to yours.

  2. Well, I can’t undo the wisdom teeth thing (and to be honest, I’d have a much harder time with flossing and cleaning if they stayed…my mouth is too small for the teeth I currently have!), but I have started flossing more often for sure!

  3. You mention the bacteria that can form after wisdom teeth removal, but I was just wondering if this applies to the other teeth as well because I had to have 4 taken out before having braces fitted as there was not enough room in my mouth.

  4. See the two links at the bottom of this article to dentistry organizations that can help you to find a holistic dentist in your area!

  5. Oil pulling/root canal/flossing

  6. The point about flossing is true. Oil pulling sounds like snake oil to me. The toothbrush is good until the bristles starts to spread and bend. A good nylon toothbrush is best. Soaking the toothbrush in hydrogen peroxide is neither good or bad. It is not necessary. We live with that bacteria from our mouth so why would we worry about the small amount of battery on the toothbrush? The bacteria on the toothbrush is way less than what we already have in our mouth. It’s the same bacteria.
    There has never been studies or scientific evidence that link amalgam filling to disease. We all know that mercury in its elemental form as a liquid or gas is toxic but the mercury in amalgam is bound to other chemical elements and therefore is not in its elemental form.
    It is not true that a proper root canal can cause problems. If a root canal is done well and cleaned out and disinfected as it is done by an endodontist, there is no problem. You will have a saved tooth but non vital which is no different than an implant which is inorganic but something in which you can chew.
    If you need to extract your wisdom due to the fact that it is impacted or simply not enough room, that is a good reason to do so. Impacted wisdom teeth can lead to cysts. The body encapsulate the tooth. Wisdom teeth that are crowding other teeth that cause one to not clean well can lead to bone loss and periodontal disease.
    Give the body credit to heal. When we remove what causes the irritation, or an abundant of bacteria, our bodies heal.
    I believe in many natural remedies but I also know good science from bad science.
