Share HealthLifestyle Teeth whitening technique by: – September 22, 2014 Oil pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic remedy for oral health and detoxification. It involves the use of pure oils as agents for pulling harmful bacteria, fungus, and other organisms out of the mouth, teeth, gums and even throat.How To Oil PullThe most effective oil pulling is done by placing around a tablespoon of cold pressed organic sesame oil into the mouth and swishing the oil around the mouth for approximately 10-15 minutes and then spitting it out. Other oils such as extra virgin cold pressed coconut, sunflower and olive oil have been used, although sesame oil is considered one of the best oils for this practice. It is recommended to alter oils every couple of days to get the full benefit. Putting high quality organic oils into the mouth has a multi-effect outcome. First, the oils mix with the saliva, turning it into a thin, white liquid. Lipids in the oils begin to pull out toxins from the saliva. As the oil is swished around the mouth, teeth, gums and tongue, the oil continues to absorb toxins, and usually ends up turning thick and viscous and white. Once the oil has reached this consistency, it is spit out before the toxins are reabsorbed. What Does Oil Pulling Do? Multiple scientific studies show the efficacy of oil pulling therapy. One study shows that oil pulling with sesame oil can boost overall oral health. Specifically, using sesame oil as an oral health agent helps to reduce the amount of S. mutans (germ) count in both teeth plaque and mouth saliva. Scientists believe that the lipids in the oil both pull out bacteria, as well as stop bacterial from sticking to the walls of the oral cavity. Oil pulling may also increase saponification in the mouth, creating a soapy environment that cleanses the mouth as vegetable fat is an emulsifier by nature. Most interesting is perhaps the ability of oil to cleanse out harmful bacteria, as well as reduce fungal overgrowth. These oils also possibly help in cellular restructuring, and are related to the proper functioning of the lymph nodes and other internal organs. Additional benefits of oil pulling for oral health: Overall strengthening of the teeth and gums and jaws Prevention of diseases of the gums and mouth, such as cavities and gingivitis Prevention for bad breath Potential holistic remedy for bleeding gums Prevention of dryness of the lips, mouth and throat Possible holistic treatment for TMJ and general soreness in the jaw area Benefits Beyond the Mouth? Ancient Ayurvedic health practitioners believed that oil pulling could reduce more than just diseases of the mouth and throat. Today, many holistic practitioners tout its use for a variety of health concerns. It is believed that these oils help the lymphatic system of the body as harmful bacteria are removed and beneficial microflora are given with a healthy environment to flourish. Because of this holistic perspective, oil pulling has been used as a preventative health measure for many other conditions. Other possible benefits of oil pulling for overall health include: Migraine headache relief Correcting hormone imbalances Reducing inflammation of arthritis May help with gastro-enteritis Aids in the reduction of eczema May reduce symptoms of bronchitis Helps support normal kidney function May help reduce sinus congestion Some people report improved vision Helps reduce insomnia Reduced hangover after alcohol consumption Aids in reducing pain Reduces the symptoms of allergies Helps detoxify the body of harmful metals and organisms Scientific Studies on Sesame Oil & Oil Pulling Sesame oil is particularly high in the antioxidantssesamol, sesamin, and sesamolin. It also holds a high concentration of Vitamin E and polyunsaturated fatty acids. These antioxidants have been found to stop the absorption of negative forms of cholesterol in the liver. Multiple studies have shown the antibacterial capacities of sesame oil. These studies support the use of oil pulling in the prevention of dental cavities and gingivitis. A 2007 study looking into the effect of oil pulling (with sunflower oil) on plaque and gingivitis on oral soft and hard tissues. Results found that after 45 days of oil pulling, subjects showed a statistically significant reduction in gingivitis. Another study, conducted in 2008 found a “remarkable reduction in the total count of bacteria” in the mouth, and an overall marked reduction in susceptibility dental cavities. The antibacterial activity of sesame oil was also studied and found to have an effect on the Streptococcus mutans in the mouth. In fact, these studies showed an overall reduction of bacteria from 10 to 33.4% in participants, and after 40 days of oil-pulling, participants were found to show 20% in average reduction in oral bacteria. Moreover, half of all participants in this case study showed a drastic reduction in susceptibility to dental caries. Here is one more fantastic tip. Peel off to get whiter teeth with the banana peel. Minerals found on the banana’s inside show an incredible effect on teeth. The magnesium, potassium and manganese soak up into teeth and then whiten them. This methodology is extremely simple to be followed. Simply rub the banana’s inside, gently for two minutes, around your teeth. Soon, you will be able to find that the bananas would become yellow and your teeth white. Trythis.com Tweet Sharing is caring! 255 Views no discussions Share Share
“You never know in football. There are different ways to analyse the season. The title is important but it is not the only important thing.” Pellegrini has generally stuck to his attacking philosophy throughout his time at the Etihad Stadium and he seems in little mood to change. The club’s ownership are thought not only to want to win, but to do so in style, and Pellegrini feels his team still offer a lot on that front. He said: “The concern is to win the next 11 games. It is important to have (control of) our mind and trust in what we do. “This is the same team that won two cups last year and scored around 160 goals (actually 156) – the most in the history here. “This year we are continuing second in the table, just two or three points (actually five) less than last year.” City do have recent precedent for changing managers having dispensed with Roberto Mancini in 2013 despite his past successes of winning the FA Cup and Premier League. The present situation does hold some similarities, despite Pellegrini’s protestations, but it is not bothering the former Real Madrid and Malaga boss. He said: “I only think about the present. You never know what will happen in the future. “You don’t know if we are going to win against Barcelona or be out of the Champions League. Maybe last year nobody would say we were going to win the Premier League. “I have 25 years’ experience of management at important clubs and I never feel the pressure.” As for critical analysis of his team’s performance – by many players turned pundits – Pellegrini was indifferent. “It is not my duty to tell the media what they must think,” he said. “Everyone has his opinion and the right to give their opinion.” City will look to get back to winning ways as they host Premier League bottom side Leicester. Pellegrini said: “I hope that we can recover to be a consistent team during the whole game. I am sure if we can do it, we are going to win. “But if we think that we are going to win against Leicester because they are bottom of the table, that would be a very bad decision.” The Chilean has come under heavy fire in the past week after damaging 2-1 defeats to Barcelona and Liverpool. City face an uphill battle to turn around their Champions League last-16 tie at the Nou Camp while they now trail Barclays Premier Leaders Chelsea by five points having played a game more. Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini appeared ready to fight for his job as he faced the media following fresh criticism and speculation over his position. Press Association Pellegrini was accused of tactical naivety following both results, having sent out his team in his default 4-4-2 system and seen them easily undone. The faltering on two fronts has also fuelled speculation linking the likes of Pep Guardiola, Diego Simeone and Carlo Ancelotti with his position, but Pellegrini claims he is not feeling the heat. The 61-year-old, speaking at a press conference to preview Wednesday’s clash with Leicester, said: “I never have any pressure to win an amount of titles and to win a title every year if I want to continue here. I don’t feel any pressure, especially from the media. “I feel pressure only when I don’t see my team playing the way I want it to do.” Prior to Pellegrini’s appointment, chief executive Ferran Soriano spoke of an ambition to win five trophies in five seasons. Pellegrini won two in his first year – the Premier League and Capital One Cup – but he insists he has not been told of any minimum requirement per season. He said: “When I signed the contract, I was never told I must win a title every year or that I must win five trophies in five years. “That was a sentence of Ferran. That is perfectly normal. But maybe you can win two in one year and one in another, the other another two.
