Our thoughts, moods, or let's say our emotional wellbeing is so much connected with our gut and our mouth (what goes in it and how it is getting pre-digested), that it is important to pay some attention to it.
A good way of reactivating and “refreshing” our gut is experiencing the 12 week gut cleanse that Mrs Snook had recommended to people many many years ago. I just finished it and feel great and radiant. https://gretapuls.com/home/mrs-snooks-diet/ I highly recommend it to everyone who wants to "restart" their gut health. And if you think you can’t do this on your own, you can join us of a Gut Health - Yoga Retreat in July, where I’ll guide you through the cleanse. Hatha Yoga focusses on cleansing the system, so the body and the whole person is getting ready for meditation practices and a higher consciousness. Also massage aims to help flush out toxins and to soften muscles, helping the person to let go of resistance in the body and mind. This is a good starting point for inner growth - and so is a yoga retreat. http://www.atworkyoga.com.au/aishaniyogaretreats/
Unfortunately many of us don’t realise that the things we eat to improve our gut health are acid and will help in the gut to get the body alkaline; but in the mouth they are acidic - for example the well known lemon juice a lot of people drink in the morning.
So here I have something that will help you have a healthy mouth (teeth and gum); something to keep in mind to neutralise the ph in your mouth. If you don't think making a mouthwash yourself, make sure you at least wash out your mouth with a lot of water after eating, or put a little bit bicarb soda in the water you rinse your mouth out with.
Once we started with keeping our teeth healthy we can move a step further: the Gut cleanse retreat from 6 July - 18 July 2019.
Easy CocoMint Mouthwash
This mouthwash doesn’t require any simmering and is a great option for anyone who wants something easy. Plus, the ingredients are probably already in your kitchen.
2 cups warm water
3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
½ teaspoon of Celtic sea salt or pink Himalayan sea salt
¼ teaspoon of baking soda
2 drops of peppermint oil
Mix ingredients in a glass container and shake well.
You’ll have to shake with each use.
Keep out of sunlight but also somewhere warm enough where the coconut oil won’t solidify. If it does become solid, you can run the glass jar under warm water
