Discovering Health + Wellness: Oil Pulling & Apple Cider Vinegar Water


Hello guys,

I know I haven't blogged in so long. (My first blog post for the year).  I truly love blogging and "Discovering various aspects to Health & Wellness" (My blog tag line) and sharing them here with you.

In the midst of my absence, I have discovered health and wellness treatments/remedies and would like to share them with you. My new additions are below:

  1. Oil Pulling. In an effort to be more of an active participant in my oral health, I have taken up oil pulling. I've wanted to try oil pulling for so long now, I've finally given it a chance, using sesame oil. The purported benefits seem fair enough and couldn't pass up doing something that seems so harmless and easy doing. The infographic briefly sums up this ancient ayurvedic treatment.

Also, heyfranhey has a great YouTube video on oil pulling.



2.  Apple Cider Vinegar.  My day begins with hydration. Every morning I drink 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water. This has been an awesome way for me to jump start my body, while cleaning it out.in and outside of the body Apple cider vinegar is both beneficial in and on the body. 
Do your research. Give it a try. Let me know.

If you've tried either oil pulling or drinking apple cider vinegar in water, please share below in the comments section.
