Nature's Way - Mouthwash

Mouthwash companies are quick to tell you that their product kills germs, prevents plaque and bad breath. What they don’t tell you is that more than 20% of their product is alcohol and long-term use of their mouthwash increases the risk of mouth and throat cancers. 

Melbourne University conducted a study of more than 3,200 people, which found a nine-fold increase in risk of cancer among smokers and a five-fold rise among drinkers. The ethanol in mouthwash is thought to help cancer-causing substances – such as nicotine – permeate the mouth lining.

The following table shows the health concerns based on commonly used mouthwash.

Nature’s Way Alternatives

Mouthwash is simply for flushing your mouth to remove waste that is trapped. If you teeth and tongue are brushed correctly you don’t need anything as harsh as alcohol to rinse your mouth. Something as simple as warm salt water will do the job just fine and from there the body’s normal reparative process will take over. Our bodies naturally repair our gums and bones, the harsh products that we often use hinder this natural process. The best thing we can do is not get in the way and keep our dental hygiene routine as simple as possible.
Vinegar is another powerful plaque destroying mouthwash and can be used in the same way as salt, diluted in a cup of water.
If you would like a bit of taste or minty fragrance, add a couple of drops of peppermint essential oil with the salt or vinegar water.

• Enhanced oral hygiene
• Kill germs and bacteria
• Fresh breath
• Treatment for mouth infections and ulcers
• Save money

• Damaged enamel

Take care when using vinegar though, it should be diluted with a plenty water as the acid can damage the enamel on your teeth if the concentration is too strong. After using a vinegar mouthwash or toothpaste rinse well with water to flush away any remaining acid.


Vinegar or salt

Dilute 1 teaspoon of vinegar or salt in a glass of warm water and use daily as a mouthwash.

For added freshness add a couple of drops of peppermint essential oil to your vinegar or salt water.

Now it's your turn.

Saved by grace, a new creation, on purpose for a purpose. I am free with a future and a hope!

I've considered deleting this blog many times but can't seem to let it go for some reason. Perhaps because it contains such an important part of my life and I'm hoping that somehow my 'scribblings' can inspire and help others going through some of the things I've been through. So, I continue to hold onto it for a little longer. Tonight, 31st December 2021, I reflect on not only the year that has passed but the many years before that too. I love to look back and reflect before plotting the way forwards into a new year. So I've pulled out all my journals and as I flip through the pages I am in awe of how far I have come.  Only today I found myself chatting with Jordan about the importance of not comparing ourselves with others but without past self, and as I look back I am amazed and how far I have come. I can't help but go back to that day. The day that I hit rock bottom. I had been a Christian for 10 years at that point and yet still found myself on the

Daniel Fast - Odours, Tiredness and Pains

These are some of what can occur during a fast but don't be alarmed, it is only worse case scenario.  Many people don't go through all of this so don't worry.  This info is merely so that you understand what is happening in your body and that you don't become concerned if some of these symptoms present themselves. Odours, tiredness, dizziness, headaches and other pains - these are some of the things that you will face during your fast.  As you continue to fast you body will begin to cleanse itself and eliminate toxins.  These toxins will come out of your body wherever they can which will mean that you might sweat more and your sweat will have a stronger smell than usual.  You breath will also be stronger than usual and so will you urine smell.  You may even get a funny taste in your mouth or feel that your tongue has a thick coat on it.  It sounds nasty, but for a while you will face unpleasant odours from your body, so brush well with a natural toothpaste (as you don
