White Healthy Teeth and a Clean Home - Toxin-Free
I just introduced two exciting new products that have a wide range of uses to help make life easier for everyone.
The first product is called Brushing Rinse
This is a mouthwash/gargle that is a mixture of a 1% Food-Grade Hydrogen Peroxide (FGHP)
, aloe vera and a blend of essential oils. It can be used as a mouthwash or as a gargle. Both help to disinfect the mouth, kill harmful mouth bacteria (the source of many a case of bad breath, tartar and cavities), freshen the breath, and gradually whiten the teeth. The aloe helps to soothe irritated gums as in the case of gingivitis, canker sores, gum pockets, and periodontal disease. As every dentist can tell you, the health of the teeth depends on the health of the gums. The essential oils are antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal. This means you can swish with this formula for candida issues (e.g. thrush) as well as for the obvious bacterial problems (tooth abscess, infected gum, etc.).
This Brushing Rinse
comes in a 16 oz. size. It is recommended to use about 1/3 oz. at a time. Youíll be surprised at how inexpensive and effective this formula is.
The second product is Food-Grade Hydrogen Peroxide
Peroxide itself is antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal. The uses for this product are almost endless: disinfecting cutting boards, cleaning white porcelain sinks, whitening tile grout, rinsing fresh produce, cleansing wounds, whitening laundry without chlorine, disinfecting a toothbrush, etc. Skin problems that can benefit from peroxide: athleteís foot, skin infections, and even gangrene
The Good and Bad of Bleaching:
Although bleaching makes our lives prettier, it can also cause health problems. A good general rule of thumb for natural healers is to advise people not to consume things that have been bleached Ė things like refined white sugar, refine white flour, and refined white table salt. These are the bad
whites. They are nutritionally depleted foods and contribute to excess mucous formation in the body, malnutrition, blood sugar highs and lows, and even hardening of the arteries. Other bad
whites include household products that have been bleached with chlorine such as napkins, facial tissues, paper towels, coffee filters, writing paper, cigarette paper, milk and juice cartons, diapers, toilet paper, and tampons. These items are often contaminated with the cancer-causing substance dioxin, a byproduct of chlorine bleaching. And last, but not least, tap water, which often contains chlorine Ė which, on the up side of things, kills harmful bacteria that can cause diarrhea, but, on the down side, kills natural gut bacteria and can interfere with thyroid function.
Why Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide is so Amazing:
For one, because chlorine is toxic and because FGHP
The Toxicity of Chlorine:
Chlorine does kill germs, but itís also so toxic, it was used as a weapon during World War I. Chlorine is a known mucus membrane irritant. Exposure to chlorine gas causes such symptoms as tearing, salivation and production of bronchial mucus. This is often accompanied by bronchospasm (spasms in the breathing passages) that result in wheezing, and, in severe cases, death by asphyxiation. Household bleach is sodium hypochlorite, which is also toxic. Common household products containing sodium hypochlorite (liquid cleansers, chlorine bleach-containing laundry detergents) can also trigger the same symptoms. So many times Iíve walked into a hotel room smelling the chlorine bleach that was used to disinfect and whiten bathroom fixtures. And I think about the unsuspecting maids who are using bleach on a daily basis, who may have already developed chronic respiratory or sinus conditions as a result of exposure to chlorine bleach.
Many people are unaware that many seemingly innocent household cleaning products are quite toxic, yet I have had so many people contact me to let me know their health problems began while using chlorine bleach. Because of these issues with chlorine, I have been very eager to have an alternative for household use.
How Well Does FGHP Work?
Since I donít use chlorine bleach, you can imagine that things just donít get purely white like they do with chlorine bleach. So, as soon as I received this product, I put it to work immediately. On my list of things to whiten: a badly stained white refrigerator, white stove, white sink, white bathtub, white toilet and white blouses.
The white sink was the first project. White porcelain sinks are a nightmare to keep white. But after just one application of the FGHP
spray, the stains were fading, and after a few more applications, the sink was a beautiful white once again. I found that spraying the sink last thing at night was a great way to have the spray soak in and really bleach the sink.
The white refrigerator was the second. Years of use of a refrigerator with a door that didnít close all the way unless you pushed very hard, had been marked up with hundreds of black scuff marks where former tenants had pushed the door closed with their shoes. Not a single natural cleanser would touch it. They came right off with the FGHP
, baking soda, and the scrubbing end of a sponge.
Next were a few white blouses that were ruined with stains. Instead of using chlorine bleach, I used the FGHP
Solution. I sprayed a few sprays on the stains as a pre-treatment, and let the blouses dry in the sunlight. After a few hours, the stains were gone! (Some of the other blouses needed a couple of repeat applications). I remember going through this whitening routine as a child with my mother, when I had a stained blouse, and oftentimes, the commercial peroxide would leave a slightly yellow stain behind on the garment. So, I was surprised that FGHP
could whiten so well with no traces of yellow left behind.
Many people donít know you can use baking soda as an alternative to scouring powders. Making a paste of FGHP
plus baking soda is so powerful, it can clean even the most stubborn stains. Try this paste on tile grout to keep grout white and free of mildew. Because this paste is natural, it can even be used on the skin to relieve the itching of chicken pox or mosquito bites.
A strange experience I had with this peroxide was when I applied a natural lip stain and accidentally stained my teeth a reddish shade of pink! Needless to say, I was in a panic, and could not brush the stain off with toothpaste. However, I had the FGHP
with me, sprayed it on my toothbrush and immediately began brushing my teeth with the peroxide. After about one minute, the stains were gone. (3% hydrogen peroxide can be used intermittently as a natural tooth whitener, however, if you are going to use hydrogen peroxide every day in your mouth, itís better to use a FGHP
solution with a lower percentage of peroxide (such as the 1% solution in the Brushing Rinse
), since higher concentrations used daily can sometimes irritate the gums.
How to Know if Your FGHP is Pure:
Most commercially available hydrogen peroxide in your friendly neighborhood drugstore contains additives such as preservatives and stabilizers. Many people are concerned about the health effects of these additives Ė and rightfully so. Common additives include acetanilide, phenol, sodium stagnate and tertrasodium phosphate. To find out how pure your hydrogen peroxide is, take this test: pour a small amount into a glass of water and observe the color of the water. If the water turns slightly yellow, there are some stabilizers mixed in. Who wants yellow in their whites?

I hope everyone can take advantage of this monthís saving on herbs to help save your ďpearly whites,Ē your laundry whites, your porcelain fixture whites and everything else in the household that needs a good deep cleaning.
P.P.S. Please buy a bottle for your maid!
Natural White Smiles,
P.S. Weíve run out of Candida-G
and Flora-G Plus
. The FDA has recently issued new regulations regarding how encapsulated formulas are manufactured and itís causing a slight delay in the supply. I hope we can get these products back in stock soon. Iíll send out another email as soon as we get them.
