I've been doing the oil pulling, and I love it! My teeth look great I noticed that one tooth was receding a little, which inspired to try it. You don't have to use coconut oil if you don't want to - olive oil is fine, and traditionally sunflower oil is used (but we won't go there )
Naia and Nameless: do you think memory and mental health are connected? Strangely, my memory is excellent: friends tell me it's like an elephant's! But when I was smoking dope it went to absolute shit, and sometimes when I'm stressed I'll completely black out about things.

"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
