First things first! I start every morning with oil pulling and a glass of warm lemon water.
Some time ago I stumbled over oil pulling. At the beginning I was not very enthusiastic about having oil in my mouth for 20 minutes. Nonetheless after I read about all the benefits of oil pulling, I decided to give it a try. And it was not as bad as I have imagined.
My main aim was a stronger immune system. Due to swishing coconut oil in your mouth, for about 20 minutes, you are pulling out all the bacteria out of the gums. Which leads, according to different sources, to improved acne, reduced inflammation, stronger gums and jaws, or even whiter teeth. My dentist indeed claimed to see differences after I started with oil pulling and also my immune system has been enhanced.
If I have convinced you to start with oil pulling, this is what you should do. Straight after getting up, before you drunk or ate something, take a tablespoon of coconut oil and swish it in your mouth for about 20 minutes (DO NOT swallow). I am doing this procedure while in the shower, planning is the key. 🙂 After 20 minutes just split the coconut oil out into the trash and wash your mouth with warm water.
After finishing my oil pulling procedure, right before having breakfast, I drink a glass of warm lemon water. Just squeeze the juice of half lemon and pour over hot water. I started to drink warm lemon water to increase my metabolism.
To my mind and my experience, this routine really improves my well-being. So why not to give it a try?
