I've noticed that if I forget and eat in the morning before a swish that the saliva production is decreased and a noticable increase if I don't eat.How does that work and how long should one wait after eating to swish with the best results? Thank you
You can eat anytime, even though this isn't the optimal way to go. The whole idea is not to swallow that bacteria that built up the night before. We can't prevent swallowing that bad stuff of course, but try to mitigate the process by swishing before you eat or drink anything.
I've swished in the morning and before dinner many times if I feel the need. The reason I rarely swish after eating is that it does seem to affect gallbladder production, and has been known to cause a tummy ache. But really, this is not a hard and fast rule by any means.
When you think about it, swishing after eating might not be such a bad idea as you want to clean your teeth effectively. Perhaps it might be a good idea that instead of an after dinner brandy, you take a shot glass of oil instead. And after you can throw your shot glass into the fire with David Niven style flair :-)
I have been getting rid of the bacteria on the tongue every moring by taking a teaspoon and scraping it off. You would be surprised how much junk is on the tonque. I also oil pull and have combined different oils plus 1-2 drops of cell food. I use half unrefined coconut oil and either olive oil, peanut oil, seseme oil or sunflower oil.
I saw that using 10 drops of cellfood in 4 oz. of distilled water may help with hair loss (spray it on scalp 2-3 times daily) and decided to try 1-2 drops of the cell food with oil pulling and it makes my teeth feel very clean. More than 2 drops felt way too strong.
I also swish after a meal with aloe vera jel that I had soaked clove buds in for a few days. It helps with the gums and the breath.
