Using low lectin/nightshade free primal to control autoimmune arthritis. (And lost 50 lbs along the way )
According to my DD, my breath was getting better over the holidays when I was eating a ton of Christmas cookies, lol. That suggests to me that it really is a gut issue and I need to find some other balance that doesn't include half my calories from cookies. I am working on more starch, fermented veggies and occasional kombucha. We'll see.

There is also another dentifrice test done for abrasiveness in which baking soda placed dead last.
Hydrogen peroxide may also be used to whiten teeth, but I prefer coconut oil pulling. I also rub xylitol and or white sugar on my teeth for freshness. Kinda necessary when I drink so much coffee.
Time is passing so quickly. Right now, I feel like complaining to Einstein. Whether time is slow or fast depends on perception. Relativity theory is so romantic. And so sad.
Are you or have you started flossing? Did it make a difference?
