Raw Food Rehab

No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!

sorry for no caps and limited punctuation...phone isnt cooperating.

as lemon water is what i usually have in the morning and oil pulling is typically done in the morning...and both have been touted as 'first thing'...which order should they be done in
any pros/cons either way or is it just preference


...did i mention this is really awkward with limited punctuation...

And I agree with you whole-heartedly, Joe!

Thanks for the replies everyone! :0) 

That's what made sense in my mind--get rid of the toxins first--but because I've heard both are first-thing, I just wasn't sure which was better so I thought I'd poll the masses.

And don't be so hard on yourself, Nathalie; your English is far, far better than my French ever was (even when I was living in France--but I can say I tried my best!).

Joe: Oil pulling is an ayurvedic therapy (can you call it therapy ? don't what else to use here) very ancient way of cleaning deeply your mouth  and teeth from their toxins, done on waking up. It actually makes your gum stronger, teeth whiter, cavities more rare etc... it is a very healthy thing to do, very efficient, I would recommend this to absolutely everyone.

On waking up, take a spoon of organic coconut oil in your mouth and have it all around your mouth for about 10 minutes every day ...do NOT swallow (or the toxins come back to you), spit in the garbage wait a few minutes before you do anything else (like drinking water or whatever)  ...it is an extraordinary thing to do.

My English being quite limited (I am French), why don't you google oil pulling and read more about it and in a better English than mine.

OK so my mom always told me the only dumb ?? is the one you don't ask!!!

What is 'oil pulling'??


Comment by nathalie carles on February 7, 2013 at 2:43am

One should do oil pulling first thing when waking up as you get all your toxins out...then you have to wait a few minutes and then lemon water. That's how I was told and what I do every morning.

From what I've read (and try to do) Michelle is Oil Pulling first thing on an empty stomach. Then have the lemon water. Don't know why it's supposed to be done that way but it certainly feels good : )
