Oil pulling results and next 30 day challenge: CoEnzyme Q10

So, I realised that I haven’t been on here in a very long time, but I did do oil pulling for those 30 days. My results… well, I certainly didn’t notice anything different… but I guess no change is also good because means it’s not getting worse!! I know everyone on the internet is raving on about oil pulling saving teeth and cures cavities etc etc, but in my case, it hasn’t really done that. I still oil pull daily, sometimes I miss a day here and there, but I do try keep it up regularly and hopefully see some benefits in the long run!

At the moment, my gums and teeth seem to be getting worse as time progresses, however, I’m not giving up! I will fix my gums and teeth!

Now, the next thing I have been trying is taking CoEnzyme Q10 everyday with vitamin c as well as taking my daily dose of fish oil! My boyfriend did some research for me and told me that CoEnz Q10 is suppose to help rebuild gums and help them reattach to the teeth… so far… i’m 2 weeks in I think. I’ll let you know how it goes once I’m done!

I’m back and here are some updates!

Good morning world! (as oppose to “Hello World!” … get it? *programmer joke*)

I’ve been slacking with blogging… but I’ve decided to get back to it! I’ve since graduated from Computer Science and I’m now working! Woo go me! But it’s very difficult to get hired by companies at times because I lack the experience that’s required. Also, I’m terrible at the technical challenges. So in order to improve myself and get better at it, I am on hackerrank.com doing challenges there whenever I can! The contests they have on there is also fun to participate in if you have the time! I highly recommend it!

Computers and jobs aside, I’ve been having some issues with my gums and teeth for a while now.. and I’ve always been so cautious of what I eat because of it. And nothing I do seem to help it get better.

I’ve been eating very “healthy” and trying out many different diets… ranging from mainly fresh fruits and vegs and cutting out gluten and processed foods, eating milk kefir, making kombucha, intermittent fasting.. You name it! But none of it seems to help. It’s rather frustrating.

So I was talking to my best friend and she said something which made so much sense. She said maybe what you think is healthy is not actually that healthy because you don’t eat enough of those things to get enough nutrients in your body to heal your gums/teeth. So I thought about it and that’s right, when I was younger, I never had such problems with my gums and teeth because I ate everything, I didn’t restrict myself from any foods. So now instead of “cutting” foods from my diet, I just eat whatever my body is feeling like eating instead of saying “no I can’t eat that”.
I’m also taking supplements for iron, vitamin D and daily vitamin tablets to see if they will help.

On top of that I also do oil pulling with coconut oil once a day for 20 minutes (I read that it’s suppose to help with getting rid of bacteria in your mouth and keeps your mouth clean!), but I haven’t seen much of a difference to be honest, however I will keep it up just because my mouth does feel very clean after I do it.

So I’ll keep this updated to let you know how that goes! Not like you care but it’s almost like a way for me to keep blogging 🙂

Have a super Monday!
