Oral Hygiene During Fasting
Can I still use my regular everyday toothpaste while juicing?
Yes, you need to brush your teeth more during fasting for several reasons. The breath gets bad and the tongue gets coated and there is a build up of bacteria and also a bad taste in the mouth. Regular toothpaste is fine and waterpiks and floss are even better. Brushing your teeth several times per day can ward of cankers that are so common during fasting. Mouthwash is also good between brushing. Also brush the tongue to remove the yellow scum. If bad breath is affecting your work you can chew on some parsley.
All the major organs start to pass toxins and the tongue also does the same. This is my claim and it would be great to find some science to back it.
