How to cure toothache
Cure toothache with olive oil
I know it sounds crazy. 'Has BritFlorida lost it at last?' No, it's true and it works. You can cure toothache simply and effectively by using the regular olive oil you have in your kitchen. I have a problem tooth and yesterday it was particularly troublesome. A spoonful of olive oil and fifteen minutes later it was almost pain free.
THE TOOTHACHE WAS GONE
Half an hour later, there was only a remnant of toothache. By bedtime, it was gone completely (and toothache is always at its worst in bed, don't you agree?) Today, I can't even remember what it felt like but I do know that yesterday it was affecting my whole jaw and even my throat.
HOW TO PERFORM THIS MIRACLE
I'll tell you right now that this is something you need to do in private, or otherwise your family will think you've gone totally bonkers. In the shower is a good,private place. Brush your teeth, oh so gently so as not to anger the offending tooth, then simply swill a tablespoon of olive oil around your mouth, concentrating especially on the painful area. After fifteen minutes, spit out the oil (nicely and politely). That's all.
IT'S CALLED OIL PULLING
I can't remember where I first heard about this and why it's called 'pulling' I have no idea - possibly because when you swill, try to pull the oil through the gaps between your teeth. You will look like a complete nutcase, of course, but my goodness, it works. And there's another aspect I love about it - it's cheap! It makes your teeth feel brand new (and considering the age of my teeth, that's pretty amazing).
HOW DOES OIL PULLING WORK?
I have absolutely no idea. But it does. Is it a psychological affect? That could be part of it, true, but if so, it doesn't take away from the fact that it works. Will it work for every type of toothache? Again,I don't know and I'm certainly not a dentist. I can only say it works for me. I use a high-quality olive oil - but it's just the regular kind that I use for cooking and I buy the one that you see above because it's beautiful for cooking, for salad dressings, the can looks so pretty in my kitchen and yes, it's even good for performing a miracle toothache cure. Next time you think you need expensive dental work, try oil pulling instead!
Which Oil Is Best?
WHICH OIL IS BEST?
Opinion is divided. Personally,I think it's a matter of choice. I have no idea how this works (but it really does for me) but I think that it's a combination of different effects.
Firstly, I think that the oil has a soothing quality. Let me tell you why. When I was a young teenager on holiday in Italy, I decided to spend the first day in the hot sun.Yep, I was very red with burning skin.
A member of the hotel staff came to my room with a soup bowl full of olive oil with a dash on vinegar. She told me to rub this onto the burns. It worked - brilliantly.
I believe too that when you swill the oil around your mouth, scraps of food and other debris clings to the oil. Often, it's a sesame seed or something similar that has worked its way into your gum causing the toothache.
Just my theory but feel free to experiment. Until you know that it will work for you, use whatever you have in the kitchen.
NOT JUST FOR TEETH?
Some people say that oil oil pulling has far greater benefits that just curing toothache. Watch the video and tell me what you think in the comments section below.
One reviewer of this book said that it had changed his life.
I'd recommend that you read the reviews because people tell of astonishing results.
Amazing really when you consider that all you need is something that is probably sitting in your pantry right now.
Note that this book is also recommended in the video below.
Hear from Angus again.This video was made when he had been oil pulling for just over a week. He already saw benefits.
In this video, he explains exactly how and when to do this.
