The *NATURAL *Science of Healthiness

Part 1 – The Mouth – (Teeth)

On the matter of keeping your body in a "normal” condition, (so that it does
not bother or interfere with your normal activities) – the mouth, by which
you must eat to keep a healthy body and which is the primary absorption
point for all chemicals – so especially the teeth are obviously of high
importance. In this age, because of the constant bombardment by varities of
foods and chemicals like the human has never experienced before, the teeth
are constantly under pressure to break down. But a normal, healthy body
means, of course, perfectly healthy teeth! The digestive system is designed
in such a way that for optimal health, the food should be finitely
well-chewed. In fact, it is also well-known that most of the energy we can
absorb from food is directly through the mouth, tongue, and under the
tongue. For example, some medications are administered under the tongue
instead of with an injection. To take it one step further, have you noticed
all the list of interestingly named chemicals in your toothpaste? Many of us
already know the dangers of fluoride. Some going so far as to say that it is
a brain drug to keep people in agreement; or that it was put in toothpaste
to make people believe it’s not that harmful because it is used in the
majority of the industries creating metal products, and thus is released
into the environment. Of course it is a very harmful substance which should
probably have never been extracted from our earth. But this is what we
inject into our bodies everyday. On some packages it simply states,
“Warning. If ingested, call the poison control center. Do not give to
children under 6.”
So let us assume we have at least stopped using fluoride toothpastes, and
you buy nice stuff that looks similar from the health food store – and it
still tastes “minty” so… it’s better for you, correct? There is still a
list of chemicals, and who knows what they are (yet)? Fluoride was accepted
as normal, and needed for many, many years! Do you find any animals in
nature that have worse teeth because they don’t use toothpaste? For example
in a natural environment soap was not used because it washed away our very
own “protective layers” of “*Naural”* oils and scents! Are we really
helping our body? Lets look at this from a natural point of view, since in
fact our bodies are natural, and not mechanical. We are clever humans,
but still humans. So why do our teeth tend to need huge machines to keep
them healthy and all sorts of chemicals from the four corners of the earth
(along with special battery-twirling action to get out everything,
everywhere)? Well, the “magic box” (be it TV or the packing advertisments)
tells us, so it must be “*true”*. It seems we clever humans have surpassed
our most wise teacher even, so lets go back and observe nature since infact,
whether we like it our not, we are subject to its rules.

In the ‘old days’ humans were a bit more clever – staying within the
boundaries of his comfort and responsibility to his environment; he was
awarded the use of fire. Through fire, we have the magic alchemy that
separates our constructions and lifestyle from the animals. If, for example,
we ate only raw food (or simply took prana, the direct energy of the sun,
therefore ending our need for food (fact! Search “Sun Gazing”,
“Breatharians”, etc.) there would be no use for brushing teeth, but as we
cook our food with fire, we can use another fire produced product to *
counteract* whatever damage (is made by this.) And that “product”, or “magic
substance” I like to call it, is Ashes.! The burned, ‘unusable’ remains of
a once living thing, being made up of the elements, when fire is introduced
it eats the air. The air drives away the water, and what is left, is
earth. From dust to dust (in the cycle), our fires simply accelerate the
process of the sun, in the basic sense. Kind of strange washing with earth
perhaps, but that’s how it works!

Naturally, every plant has different properties, so every plant will have
difference ashes, therefore, at least one type of ash (es) that has been
found to be good for cleaning teeth, is made from eggplant, or Aubergine.
Among other features, it is interesting to note that eggplant is a close
relative of the tobacco family, and originates from India.
So without further adieu…

“How to get “nice” ashes from Eggplant. (the fruit).”
First, slice the eggplant about 1cm thick, and lay them out to dry in the
sun,. They should be as dry as possible (screens help), but beware of mold
by leaving them out overnight. For example, if you live in a northern place
- either keep them in a cardboard box overnight, or perhaps a warm oven.
Then put them in a pan (dry) on high heat, and watch them glow alive and
then trans-mutate into black embers! Take them out at this stage – they
should NOT become fully white – aka “Real ashes”otherwise they will lose
some potency. (we want black embers for the powder) Next, grind the embers
as small as possible. I find a wheat sifter works very well, and add 20-50
percent Sea Salt ….and Viola!

(Note: there is some controversy as to adding salt. It has been found by
some that salt destroys the gums to some extent, and perhaps a better
alternative is baking soda or perhaps making two mixtures and using (sea)
salt once or twice a week)

Also banana and orange peels are said to also be good for teeth, though with
banana peels it’s a problem to dry them thoroughly; and with orange peels,
they are used dry and ground finely, but not ashes. And of course, baking
powder has long been used for teeth.

Some ideas (I heard) for turning the powder into paste include adding
oil. (Oil
by itself (a few drops to clean out the mouth for a few minutes every
morning) is also very good to clean the mouth of built up bacteria) Also,
hydrogen peroxide.
(When “googling” eggplant, and teeth, I came across this with more nice
The only other information I could find on eggplants being used in
toothpaste exist in Japan where it appears to be somewhat common. Perhaps it
has been used there for some time, hence why in ancient days black teeth
were considered “beautiful”!

Add a small amount of the powder on a moistened toothbrush and scrub
thoroughly and slowly. As stated before when an unnatural chemical is
introduced into our body, the natural reaction is to get it out as fast as
possible – and this is what is happening with normal toothpaste. We want to
brush as fast as possible to (and) get it over with. But when you are using
ashes to clean, you really need to also add the physical element and really
(scrub) brush them., gently and slowly. You will be able to feel each tooth
and also which places need more brushing. (scrubbing.) Take this time to
think and imagine how you are helping your teeth in the best possible way to
be healthy and happy- and working to the fullest capacity! Since our body is
completely regenerating itself in no more than 5 years, the teeth are also
rebuilding themselves. But like everything else in our body, according to
our preset specifications about what state they are in, your body naturally
wants to heal and regenerate itself. So, let it!

Amazingly enough, when using this toothpowder, it also cures toothaches, and
gum disorders, etc. Even a healthy commercial alternative toothpaste can’t
go that far and still tells you to see a “professional”. If we are really
honest with ourselves, only we have the responsibility to keep our body in
working order, and a ”Good Healer”, as “doctors” and “dentist” *should *be
only has the responsibility to guide us on this.

If we want to take this to a whole new level, we can also go into making our
own toothbrushes! Some examples include Marshmallow Roots, Alfalfa Roots,
and Liquorice Roots. The basic process is to grind away any pulp, and dry
the fibers to use as a brush. The same works with a small chunk of dry palm
leaf stem -quite efficiently, and if you are ever around palm trees, it’s
easy to collect a few square centimeters for a years supply. If you really
want to get fancy, you can carve a toothbrush base and drill lots of little
holes to (and) fix the fibers in there. Why not use plastic brushes? Well,
besides the old argument that plastic is unnatural (the remains of dead
organisms that’s pumped from the ground, hmm!) but, depending on the type of
brush they tend to destroy, your mouth or themselves very soon depending on
your brushing technique.

Thank you for taking the time to make the living world better places!
