Human beings are a minority compared to the number of microbes that exist on planet earth! Bacteria, which were the first life form on earth millions of years ago, have contributed to evolution of every single species from then on. Human DNA is thus made up of 37% of bacterial DNA according to latest research. Trillions of microflora surrounds us and are also within us. Fortunately 99% of this microflora is beneficial and infact needed by our body to keep us healthy and thriving.
But wait a minute, didn’t Louis Pasteur, Father of the Germ theory, one who devised the concept of Pasteurization say that germs are the cause of all disease? Well guess what on his death bed, Louis Pasteur recanted that, Antoine Bechamp (another scientist as that time) was right, germs means nothing, soil (Terrain) is everything. Antoine Bechamp had strongly opposed Pasteur blaming germs for everything and had said that bad germs are produced in dead and decaying tissue. Hence if the tissue is made healthy those bad germs disappeared.

How to Improve your Oral Health using Oil Therapy.
Internet today has brought about many Ayurvedic health therapies into the forefront of public awareness. Many busy health seekers, however, are looking for something simple, easy to pronounce (not Sanskrit), something that does not involve going to a health practitioner and also something that can be self-implemented easily. Thus was born the word “Oil Pulling”.
Now I do want to pause here for a moment to clarify the false expectations created by many internet health gurus. In the process of oversimplifying, many gurus have been amplifying total body health benefits associated with oil pulling. Almost making Oil Pulling sound like a miracle cure for multiple health issues. For experiencing greater bodily benefits however, you need to understand original ayurvedic oral therapies for a moment.
Authentic Vedic oral therapies are designed to be preventative, symptomatic as well as curative. Using these methods, surgery or medication could be prevented for a number of chronic illnesses. To incorporate authentic Vedic oral therapies individualized to your body type, will need more than just one simple video or article on the internet. Why.......?
Because all original Vedic oral therapies involve an absolute individualized approach based on individual body type. These therapies take into consideration current status of health or status of various stages of disease progression before being customized for each person. Thus due to lack of custom individualization, modern "simplified" oil pulling may not give you all the original bodily benefits of oral therapies.
