A quickie update, I received my package from UPS a day late, the road issue apparently prevented Bobby from delivering out here, oh well, it happens. Here is what I have been taking, first thing in the morning, I take 2-350 mg DMAE tablets, on an empty stomach. After I eat my first meal of the day, I take 1-500 mg turmeric tablet, 1-60 mg ginkgo bilboa tablet, and 1-250 mg citicoline tablet. If I eat something that contains a lot of sugar, I will also take 1-1000 mg cinnamon tablet. Since I've only done this for a few days, I can't say that is has performed miracles, but I do feel good about it and it may be helping a little, though it's hard to tell if it's just the placebo affect, I'll continue taking these supplements and write more about it after I've been on them for a while.
The other thing I am using is called coconut oil, it's supposed to have all sorts of health benefits, I have been cooking with it, and I have re-started a regimen called oil pulling. Chances are you, my wonderful readers, have never heard of oil pulling, or perhaps you have and I'm just making assumptions because I had never heard of it before I started doing it before, and I consider myself pretty up on these sorts of things.
So, what is oil pulling? You basically put a spoonful of oil in your mouth then pull and push the oil through your teeth, you do this for at least 15 minutes, 30 minutes is better, but most have to work their way up to that. When I did this a few years ago, before moving off grid, I used sunflower oil, now I am doing it with the coconut oil, it's supposed to work even better. Oil pulling is supposed to clean your teeth, clean your mouth, whiten your teeth, detoxify your body and a whole host of other claims. I don't know how much of these things it does, it is a very old process, it's been around for a loooooong time. When I did it before, one thing I did notice was apparently I had some infection in my gums and it drew out the infection/pus, yeah, I know, that sounds gross, but I'd much rather have the infection coming out than staying inside my mouth.
I don't know why I stopped, other than the fact that I had to keep the oil in the fridge, the oil was cold, and oily, I didn't like how it tasted or felt. I do feel like it was working for me, but I lost interest and stopped. This time, using the coconut oil is not as bad as using the other oil, it has no flavor on its own, and it's not unpleasant to do. I have done it 3 times now, over 4 days and I can feel something going on in my mouth, something good.Do your own research and decide for yourself if this is something that would be good for you.
Google oil pulling.
