in Overall Health by

If you are searching for a natural cavity fighter than you should consider making coconut oil a part of your diet. Coconut oil is known as a natural antibiotic and it has been found to destroy the bacteria that cause tooth decay.

Researchers discover that coconut oil kills unfriendly bacteria

Researchers at the Athlone Institute of Technology, Ireland, reported at the Society for General Microbiology autumn conference at the University of Warwick, England that coconut oil has antibacterial qualities combating strains of Streptococcus, which commonly inhabit the human mouth.

Dr. Damien Brady, along with a team of researchers, found that digested coconut oil stopped most of the bacteria from multiplying. What the team found was that semi-digested coconut oil destroys Candida albicans yeast that causes thrush. They believe that coconut oil in a semi-digested state, may have commercially viable antimicrobial qualities for the oral health care industry.

Has your dentist been brainwashed by commercial advertisers?

Coconut oil is an anti-bacterial that kills bacteria that cause ulcers, threats throat infections, urinary tract infections, gum diseases and other bacterial infections. It is anti-carcinogenic; it has antimicrobial properties, helps prevent the spread of cancer cells by enhancing the immune system. It is a known anti-fungal, while being able to suppress inflammation and repairs.

Coconut is not some new aseptic product; it’s been working with mankind on virtually all infectious agents. About half of coconut oil consists of lauric acid fatty acids know to protect against infections from bacteria, viruses, yeast, fungi, and parasites. Bottom line, even if your dentist won’t tell you, it’s much better to use coconut oil – than rely on (toxic) mouthwash products that promote cancer.

Dental disease is a serious health warning – pay attention

Dental caries affects 60-90 percent of children and a majority of adults in industrial countries. This fact points to lifestyle sharing the responsibility for the epidemic of dental disease.

The dental establishment looks at dental disease as an isolated event. But, dental disease is a warning, which lets you know there are systemic problems. This is a more comprehensive view that makes sense.

Find a qualified, biological dentist that fully understands the connection between dental health and overall optimal wellness.

Let’s face it – if dental drilling, root canals, pulling teeth, mass water fluoridation, tooth brushing, and toothpastes were that effective – people wouldn’t be seeing the increase in tooth decay and gum disease.

How to stop dental disease – naturally

Up to now, we have been led to believe we are powerless unless we use fluoride toothpaste, get fluoride treatments, brush and floss. What’s missing is that our teeth and gums become vulnerable in the wake of vitamin and mineral deficiencies. In truth, there is a strong connection between a healthy body and a mouth free of disease.

Dental health is a continuous effort, but it isn’t one that needs only the “band-aids” given out by the dental industry. It is by educating and learning what makes a healthy body that will automatically pay off when you do visit the dentist.

Coconut oil seems to display a remarkable ability to keep your whole body healthy and this may be one more reason that it should be part of your own customized program to keep the drill out of your mouth.

Try this “tip of the day” – every morning take a tablespoon of coconut oil and mix it with your saliva for about 10 minutes, then spit it out. Do it every day for a week and tell us about your experience by posting your comments below.
