**How to cook pasta Sivananda? **
The composition of the paste includes 3 ingredients:
For cooking, you will need a coffee grinder and several ceramic cups.
Sea salt can be purchased at the pharmacy, please note that the salt should not contain additional ingredients, for example, glycerin or perfume fragrances.
We take an ordinary coffee grinder and grind the sea salt to the state of powder.
For lack of eggplants you can use skins of bananas in Sivananda paste. They need to bake in the oven to a coal-like state.
After they become firm, it is necessary to break them and grind them in a coffee grinder into chaff. As well as sea salt. As a result, you will get two cups of ingredients for the Sivananda paste.
To prepare a weekly stock of pasta, you need to take 2-3 tablespoons of ground sea salt and a little banana ash.
This ratio is chosen according to taste and in due course you will find some kind of its ratio, more suitable for you.
Next, carefully mix the salt and ash, and then pour the resulting powder with olive oil. It is better to use unrefined oil.
Olive oil should be added in volume one to one with sea salt in such a way that oil would cover the ready-made Sivananda paste with a small film on top.
Mix thoroughly and paste ready!
In order not to repeat often the procedure of cooking pasta ingredients, it is possible to prepare a large volume of powder (sea salt + eggplant ash), mixing everything in the required proportions, and store it in a jar in a dark, dry place. This powder can be kept long enough. And cook the paste weekly, adding the necessary amount of olive oil to the powder. It is recommended to keep the Sivananda paste itself in ceramic ware. Prepare a paste for more than a week is not desirable, since the oil is oxidized and acquires a characteristic odor.
We brush teeth with Sivananda paste
The only drawback of Sivananda’s paste is the increase in the time allowed for brushing your teeth. Instead of the usual 2-3 minutes, the time for brushing your teeth will increase to 10-15 minutes. This is due to the fact that at home it is impossible to grind the sea salt to a dusty state, so in the past there are grains of salt crystals that, like an abrasive material, will scratch the tooth enamel. Whatever it is, Sivananda paste must be completely dissolved in saliva. To do this, not a large amount (m. 1 teaspoon) of pasta is put under the tongue. For 10-15 minutes the salt is completely dissolved, and the brine can be cleaned with a brine solution.
Usually, brush your teeth with your finger. First, the solution is rubbed into the gums, and then into the outer surface, the inner surface and the edges of the teeth. The quality of cleaning is indicated by the characteristic “scratch of clear glass”, which becomes audible as you clean it, when you swipe your finger on the teeth. After brushing your teeth, you can rinse your mouth with water.
Use your health!
**Chips **– Pasta is so salty that it seems bitter. You quickly get used to it.
– At the initial stage of cleansing, if you have weak gums and teeth that are sensitive to salt, then perhaps you will experience unpleasant sensations – they will gradually pass as soon as the enamel is saturated with salt.
– If you put Sivananda paste under your tongue to dissolve it, and go watch TV, then in half an hour you can get a burn of the mucous tongue and mouth cavity. Be sensible 10-15 minutes for cleaning is enough.
– The tartar begins to disappear approximately one month after the daily use of the paste morning and evening.
“Ironically, the paste smells of chocolate.” Take care of her from friends and relatives!
– Instead of olive oil, you can use ordinary unrefined sunflower oil.
– After you have brushed your teeth with your finger, you can gently brush them with a brush, but only very gently.
– To strengthen the gums, you can rinse the mouth with a decoction of oak bark.
