Oral hygiene and skin health connection

The mouth is full of good and bad bacteria, just like the rest of the body. 
Without good oral hygiene, these bacteria can multiply and enter the bloodstream. This excess can cause a variety of health problems like infection and inflammation, as well as unwanted skin conditions like acne. 

We all know how important it is to brush twice a day and floss at least once a day, but there is another technique you can add to your oral care routine to enhance the health of your gums and teeth- and therefore your whole body. 

It is called 'oil pulling'. 
This oral hygiene method has stood the test of time, and is said to have originated in India as a part of ancient Ayurvedic medicine. 
The idea is that, much like in oil cleansing, the oil attracts or 'pulls' excess bacteria from all the nooks and crannies within the mouth.
In my own research, I found all sorts of articles for and against the practice. As I kept digging I discovered many dentists who use and recommend this technique, so I gave it a try.

1. Take 1-2 teaspoons of organic coconut oil and swish it around the mouth for 10-20 minutes.
2. Be careful not to swallow, if it feels like there is too much fluid in your mouth spit a little out and continue.
3. Spit the oil out into the bin or garden, rinse mouth and brush teeth as usual.

It certainly takes a bit of getting used to, and for some it can be quite unpleasant at first. 
Since I started practicing this regularly, I have noticed whiter teeth, fresher breath, healthier gums and less pimples in the jaw area. 
What works for some won't work for everyone- but I always like to share my successful experiments in the hope that it could help you too.
