Amanprana mouth oil for oral hygiene and detox
A healthy mouth means a healthy body
When you brush your teeth you only reach 60 percent of the tooth surface and 10 percent of the entire oral cavity. There are some ten billion microorganisms (bacteria, viruses, molds and protozoa) living in your mouth, and they can infect your gums and play a role in plaque and cavities. Poor oral hygiene allows these microorganisms to enter the bloodstream through tooth abscesses, cavities and gingivitis, where they can damage every organ and every cell (focal infections). You are especially at risk when you have low immunity levels, are fatigued, eat unhealthily and are under stress. Hippocrates actually suggested that arthritis could be cured by removing a bad tooth. Good oral hygiene drastically cuts the chance of focal infections, thus preventing the serious consequences of such infections. The connection between inflamed teeth and gums and respiratory infections has been comprehensively demonstrated. Pregnant women suffering from gingivitis are 7.5 times more likely to give birth to a premature or underweight child. Gingivitis can also cause intestinal disorders, while over 200 studies have highlighted the connection between diabetes and gingivitis. Quite simply, it is not enough to just brush your teeth.
'Oil pulling', an Ayurvedic detox technique
The medical texts Charaka Samhita and Sushrutha's Arthashastra already discussed oil pulling 2,000 years ago. The Ayurvedic practitioners cleaned their mouths by gargling with plant-based oils, not just for the purposes of oral hygiene but also to restore their bodies to good health. This makes oil pulling the perfect detoxing technique, giving the body the opportunity to recover. Oil pulling kick-starts the meridians (energy flows) in your body and can dissolve blockages. Oil pulling accelerates and activates the detoxification process.
Oil pulling - how and when? Swish 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of oil around in your mouth for 20 to 30 minutes. Suck, push down, chew, rinse, pull and gargle the oil, moving it from left to right and from top to bottom. Do not swallow the oil, spit it out. Perform oil pulling once a week and daily when detoxing. The best time is in the morning on an empty stomach after you've brushed your teeth. If you perform oil pulling more than once a day, then do it before meals.
White teeth, a beaming smile and fresh breath
Oral hygiene is at an optimum when you use Amanprana mouth oil. The essential oil made of clove, cinnamon and oregano together with coconut oil is sufficiently antiseptic to prevent rampant bacterial growth. Two types of mouth oil are available: Menta with mint and Foeniculum with fennel. Their flavour is long-lasting and will freshen your breath. Rinse and gargle with 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of oil for one to three minutes daily.
Fatigued? Mouth oil ups your performance, and professional athletes know why.
Poor oral hygiene tires you out. Mouth oil can rid you of fatigue. Paul van den Bosch, who coaches two-time cyclo-cross world champion and four-time Belgian mountain biking champion Sven Nys, and also coached triathletes Marc Herremans and Luc van Lierde, says: 'If trainers or medical staff see that their athletes are suddenly underperforming, they often send them off to the dentist. If you're suffering from an oral inflammation you cannot function normally and are not fit to compete. That's because it allows bacteria to enter the blood stream and do damage elsewhere in the body, lowering your performance.'
