We might have been able to dig the surface of Mars, build artificially intelligent robots and make virtual reality a new normal but everything comes with a price and in exchange of this technologically advanced era, we have traded our health. The modern-day lifestyle looks amazing from outside as we are now equipped with many scientific and technological marvels which a decade ago, were not even imaginable but the same lifestyle has made us vulnerable to many ailments.
Diseases like diabetes and high blood pressure are devouring a majority of the population and since there is no permanent cure for such diseases, people are left with no other options than depending on synthetic drugs for their whole life.

All the unhealthy stuff we eat on daily basis like the fried food, fast food, processed food are very difficult for the body to digest and that’s why they stick to the walls of the intestine and make a coating of bacteria, viruses, and moulds.

In this process, you just need to put a tablespoon of mustard oil or coconut oil in your mouth and then swish it for around 10-15 min but be careful not to swallow. Then you need to spit the oil into the trash instead of the sink as it will block the pipe. This simple process maintains your oral health and takes out the toxin from your body as well.
