Taking Charge of Your Health

If you’ve ever cooked with turmeric powder,
you probably had some yellow hands afterwards, along with some very delicious food. Who would
have thought that the spice that stains pretty much anything can brighten and whiten yellow
teeth? It is not clear why this amazing fact is true,
many people do swear by this tactic. Turmeric is also effective for dental issues,
such as tooth aches, gingivitis, and sensitive teeth. Turmeric kills germs, fights infections
and reduces swelling and pain. Turmeric has been used as a medicine because of a chemical
contained within it called curcumin. To whiten teeth, turmeric is mixed with baking
soda and coconut oil. Baking soda is effective for cleaning pretty much anything. Scientists
know baking soda as sodium bicarbonate. Baking soda removes stains and plaque from your teeth
by removing acids that are made by the bacteria in your mouth. Plaque can cause dental problems,
such as tooth decay and gum disease. Coconut oil is another wondrous ingredient,
that can draw out bacteria from your mouth and can treat toothaches, bad breath, tooth
sensitivity and gum disease. People call this activity oil pulling, because rinsing your
mouth with coconut oil will pull out those germs, but it also helps to whiten your teeth. Things you will need: – Turmeric powder
– Baking soda – Coconut oil
– A bowl – A mixing spoon
– Measuring spoons – A jar or container for storing the mixture Steps: – Measure 4 tablespoons of dried, organic
turmeric root powder into a bowl. – Add 2 teaspoons of baking soda.
– Add 2½ to 3 tablespoons of organic, virgin coconut oil.
– Mix thoroughly with a spoon or fork. How to use: – Spread 2 teaspoons of your turmeric teeth
whitener on your toothbrush. – Gently brush your teeth for 1 to 2 minutes.
– Swish 1 teaspoon of melted coconut oil in your mouth for another minute, then spit it
out. (Do not swallow, as this mixture contains all the germs in your mouth).
– Rinse your mouth with water. – Repeat several times a week for a couple
of weeks, then reduce the frequency to once or twice a week. Please note that this mixture may stain the
skin around your mouth. Therefore, use care when brushing your teeth. To remove any yellow
turmeric stains from your skin, apply milk to the area for about 5 minutes and then wash
off. Tips: – Store the remaining mixture in the refrigerator
for a few days. – If you would rather make a smaller amount,
ensure that you reduce all ingredients proportionately. – This mixture is likely to stain your toothbrush
bright orange! Keep a separate soft to medium bristled toothbrush for this whitener alone.
– Besides using this mixture, be sure to take care of your oral health.
– Use this method along with oil pulling with coconut oil to remove all germs from your
mouth. If you like the video, give it a thumbs up

  2. It's good at preventing cavities but it does not whiten lol. Don't believe the hype. It's very healthy though so it does not hurt.

  3. To be honest… I'd recommend a Twigbrush if you want to go all natural. It's the most natural thing out there for oral care and it helped whiten my teeth a lot

  4. can i use parashut Coconut oil in this paste.. or its necessary that oil should be in thick consistency?? it can be in a liquid consistency..

  5. I come originally from Kerala, the land of coconuts. Our women use coconut oil since centuries for amazing long hair. We use facial mixture with turmeric powder, curd and honey. People, believe me turmeric is an amazing weapon against infections and cancer. Ayurveda is authentically practiced in Kerala, where turmeric has a vital role in disease prevention and health. Moreover, Kerala is a paradies on earth!!!

  6. It works with coconut oil and turmeric powder by skiping baking soda☺cause baking soda destroys the enamel of the teeth😊..try it

  7. I tried it and didn't see much of a difference from what I usually use (1 part baking soda & 2 parts unrefined coconut oil). Plus, it's not nearly as messy as this one. I add a few drops of mint oil for flavor. The best way I've found to do it is to brush for 4-5 minutes. Then rinse with mouthwash. Then oil pull with coconut oil for 10-15 minutes. Then brush and rinse as usual. It's a long process, about 25-30 minutes, but it's not too bad if you take a quick shower in your 10-15 minutes of oil pulling. And if you end up taking a long shower, no biggy. You just pull more of the nastiness out of your mouth. When I was doing this once a week (the first week I did it twice, then once a week after), my teeth were a lot whiter. But then I got lazy and only did it about twice a month. It still did good, but I could tell my teeth were starting to darken again. Then I stopped all together for a few months and am paying for it… Time to pick it back up! But… at the end of the day… to each their own. 🙂

  8. Omg !!!!! Finally found a home remedy that really truly works. I just tried this . I'm a heavy smoker. I couldn't believe it! Had to stretch my eyes . Lol wow!! I was scared it would turn my teeth pure yellow .. Turn them 2or 3 shade whiter .. I'n about 3 mini..Thanks a lot blessing to u
