The Best Dental Cure

For the last two months, I’ve been brushing my teeth with a toothbrush and toothpaste. Before that, I was using miswak. Nowadays, I have a toothache for the first time in years. That’s why I decided to compare miswak and toothbrush.

My Experiences

I have been using miswak up to for five years. I had no complaints about it. But finally, I decided to try a whitening toothpaste since I was constantly seeing different tooth whitening products in ads.

First of all, I must say that my teeth were whiter and brighter while I was using miswak. This may be because I am brushing my teeth twice a day with toothpaste. But I was generally using miswak five times a day.

I didn’t like standing in the bathroom to brush my teeth and also the taste of toothpastes. I gag every time I rinse my mouth. Besides, the toothpaste dries the edges of my mouth.

However, while using miswak, I was reading or watching something in my room. Using miswak always calms my nerves and relaxes me. It never left a sharp taste in my mouth. Because it doesn’t have its own taste.

I haven’t had any dental problems during the years I have been using miswak.

What is Miswak?

Actually, a miswak is a thin tree branch. People have been using miswak for thousands of years. It is more common in the Middle East and North Africa. 

According to researches, miswak is better for oral health than toothbrushes and toothpastes.

Benefits

It is antibacterial and antiseptic. It prevents the formation of dental plaque, gum bleeding and bad breath. It protects the gums. It only kills harmful bacteria; protects the useful ones. It doesn’t contain fluoride. It reduces flatulence, headache and stress.

How to use

Assuming it is used five times a day, it is necessary to shorten it by cutting one centimeter every morning. The last 3-5 centimeters shouldn’t be used.

You can sit or lie down while using the miswak. You can use it for about five minutes each time. The longer you use it, the more it cleans, whitens and brightens your teeth.

It is very easy to carry in the bag.


I’ll return using miswak as soon as possible. No longer I want to use toothpaste 🙂

Get These 5 Habits and Become the Healthiest Person in The World

These are things I’ve been doing for years.

Sometimes I fail. But generally I try to do them.

1. Eat a dessertspoon of blossom honey on an empty stomach in the morning.

Because it boosts the metabolism. As I mentioned before, our colons must be empty in the morning. Otherwise, various bacteria increase in our intestines and we get sick over time.

Honey is antioxidant, antiseptic and cholesterol-free. It restores defense system. Getting rid of toxins, it helps having a healthier skin. Enables weight loss. Improves sleep quality.

It also quite beneficial for mental health and well-being. Honey calms nerves, provides relaxation and increases serotonin in the blood. It’s essential for psychological stability. Besides, eating honey improves mental abilities. Additionally, it’s beneficial for memory. 

Thus, it provides the productivity through the day.

And more…

2. Drink a glass of water at 6 am and stay awake.

Drink water before you get your coffee. Rehydrate your body. It makes you feel energetic.

Simply, drinking water provides the same benefits as eating honey. 

You can also drink your first glass of water in the morning with a little lemon squash or vinegar. This allows your body to be cleansed of more toxins.

We should drink enough water, but stop drinking one hour before our meals. If we drink water just before eating, the digestive juices in our stomach will drain away.

In addition, we should not drink water for two hours after meals to avoid sending food that has not been fully digested into our intestines.

If we are eating a dry meal, we can drink half a glass of beverage during the meal.

3. An hour after drinking water, eat fruit.

If we eat fruit before breakfast, we will get a lighter food first. 

If we eat fruit half an hour before meals, we will meet our body’s sugar need. This helps us eat less.

Also, fruits take considerably shorter to digest. Therefore, fruits should be consumed before meals.

And keep this in mind; eating a pinch of salt while starting a meal creates a protective shield inside your stomach.

4. Eat two meals a day: Breakfast and dinner.

We care very much about nutrition. According to an ancient teaching, the cause of all troubles is satiety. It’s not the cause of just all the “illnesses”, but all the “troubles”!

When our body is not digesting, it repairs itself. So, our immune system steps in if we’re hungry. Having a fever or a headache when we are hungry indicates that our body is in treatment.

Make sure you don’t eat anything for about 10 hours after breakfast.

Don’t eat dinner too early or too late. If you eat too early, you cannot sleep because of hunger. If you eat too late, what you eat will disturb you all night long. Remember, digestion stops completely after 9 pm.

5. Avoid sugar, gluten and all packaged foods.

Today we probably all know that these are very harmful to health. But we may not know exactly what they are doing us.

Gluten is actually harmful to all of us, not just people with celiac disease. Because our digestive systems treat gluten like sugar.

Sugar increases harmful bacteria in the intestines, damages the digestive system and weakens the immune system. Makes you feel sluggish and hungry, causes tooth decay and increases the risks of obesity, heart disease, diabetes and also various forms of cancer. It increases stress, causes psychological instability, weakens consciousness, slows down brain functions and causes early aging both mentally and physically.

Prefer to eat fresh foods instead of packaged foods containing additives. If possible, prepare your own meals.

Advices For Psychological Well-Being

My life is currently in a huge mess. I’d like to explain my psychology and how it affects my physical health in a bad way. But no longer I want to focus on unfavorable things about my life.

Instead, let’s talk about the solutions.

Normally, when something goes wrong in my life, I try to fix my sleeping schedule. Getting up early helps me a lot. If I start the day early, I feel good and spend my day productively. By time, I stick on a diet. Doing something beneficial for myself motivates me and I keep striving. 

However, this time I need to feel better first.

I have listed down the things I need to do. They all easy to advise but don’t seem that easy to practise.

10 Rules For Sustaining Mental Health

Rule #1

STOP COMPLAINING neither to anybody nor on your own. Don’t waste your time with it. Overthinking and talking about what annoys you make your psychology even worse. Instead, discuss the possible solutions. 

Rule #2

STOP CRITICIZING other people. Accept them as they are. Rather than focusing on other people’s mistakes, tackle your own faults. Question your own attitudes.

Rule #3

TAKE LESSONS. Every difficulty teaches us. Make a step. Train yourself for being a better person. You definitely can’t change anybody. But you can change yourself. Do your best.

Rule #4

LOOK AT THE BRIGHT SIDE. Every negativity has something positive on flip side. Change your standpoint. Look at the favorable aspects.

Rule #5

DO MORE WHAT YOU LOVE. Do the things more frequently that’s makes you feel good. Keep your mind busy. 

Rule #6

TELL WHAT IS ON TRACK to your loved ones. Talk more about the pleasing things. Don’t make people worry about you too much. If you are all right, your family and friends will be all right too.

Rule #7

DON’T BLAME ON YOU BECAUSE OF YOUR ANGER. No anger is reasonless. Anger is not a feeling but a signal. Try to understand your feelings by looking at your anger. Find your anger’s why.

RULE #8

ALLOW YOURSELF TO EXPERIENCE YOUR SORROW. It’s okay being sad. That’s life. Don’t rush to get back your usual mental state. Also, don’t force yourself to seem happy if you’re not.

RULE #9

DON’T COMPARE YOUR PROBLEMS WITH OTHER’S. Everybody has their own difficulties. Don’t underestimate your troubles. Don’t feel bad by looking other people’s problems.

RULE #10

TELLING PEOPLE THEIR MISTAKES DOESN’T MAKES YOU A BAD PERSON. Instead of talking people’s behind, talk with themselves directly. Tell the problems kindly. Don’t keep quiet because of the worry of making people sad. Don’t burn yourself out for pleasing people around you. Don’t push your satisfaction and happiness into the background.

BONUS

ENHANCE YOUR KNOWLEDGE. Knowledge is power. Read, listen, watch. Interact with people. Always learn new things.


These are my recommendations for psychological well-being.

I wonder your suggestions.

Let me know them below 🙂

15 Things I Have Learned From My Experiences

Trying to find a better way of living, I have made too many changes in my life. They all were kinda experiments. If you haven’t read yet, you may check out My Story first.

Here what I have learned from experiencing different lifestyles:

  1. There are various ways of living but none of them is “certainly preferable”. They all have their own difficulties besides their own beauties.
  2. We able to adapt to any situation we if have to. We actually able to change in any sense. It’s possible. But we prefer staying where we feel pleased.
  3. All of our thoughts and beliefs are shaped accordingly our position. If we had different experiences, we look and see different. That’s why judging and condemning people is improper. No one is incomprehensible.
  4. Discovering ourselves is as educational as discovering the world outside. So, “traveling” can be inner as well.
  5. We all get from life exactly what we wanted. There are no excuses. If it didn’t happen, that means actually we didn’t want it to happen.
  6. If we able to dream anything, somehow we able to do it.
  7. We mostly tend to tolerate because we suppose that we have to. But nothing or no one is our only choice. We just need to discover what we truly want in our lives and be brave.
  8. Giving a break is something good. We may end up arriving where we were started -but this time we have the reason of being there. This time we sure that this is the place we should to be.
  9. If we move away from something, then we realize how it affects us. And when we know how anything affects us, life is getting more enjoyable.
  10. If we don’t have mental health or we don’t feel happy, we’re not able to achieve anything. So, we shouldn’t underestimate what makes us happy and gives us joy.
  11. If we are not able to help ourselves, we neither can’t help others.
  12. Difficulties and crisis are great teachers. They eventually enhance the quality of our lives.
  13. If there is a problem, we basically try to solve it. It’s okay. But what if we can’t see any problems? Are we sure that there isn’t any? Not noticing the existing problems much worse than having problems.
  14. Both being alone and surrounding by people are beneficial as well as they may be harmful. Adjusting the balance with social life is so critical.
  15. We don’t need to tell about ourselves. Somehow people understand, feel and see who we are indeed.

I’m sure that we agree on most of them. Let me know what you think!

My Story

Can you imagine how would be life without internet, electronic devices and even electricity itself in this century?

How would be life as a vegan or a minimalist?


I’ve been questioning life for years. I have experienced many different lifestyles since I’m trying to find how should I live.

Mainly, I considered what is harmful and what is beneficial for both me and the earth. I got rid of the things that are damaging myself and the environment, while I continue with the things that seem to me good and useful. Mostly, I experienced anti-capitalist and healthy ways of living.

Every time, I accepted that I was only exploring. None of my journeys was “exactly the best”. Even today, after living accordingly a lot of different ideology, I can’t say that any of them was the correct way to follow. 


When I was at high school I used to have too many possessions like most of us. After starting collage, I ended up being a minimalist, gave away almost all my clothing, jewelry, shoes etc. till feeling myself floating in space!  I lived as a minimalist roughly for five years (now I call it “The Capitalist-Minimalism”, because minimalist practice is actually a capitalist movement, I’ll tell you later).

Achieving my goals, I focused on time management. To eliminate distractions, I quit social media and exited WhatsApp groups for years. I radically reduced using all electronic devices. I was checking out my mobile phone once a week and I used my PC even less frequently. I don’t remember how long, but I kept my mobile phone is switched off for many months. Also, I stopped using internet for six months -without any cheating. In the end, I found myself almost never using electricity. I know how crazy it sounds! 

Besides, to be healthy I tried veganism for a hundred days. And raw-food diet for a week. I quit sugar, followed gluten-free diet, avoided any food additives. Moreover, I quit make-up for years and didn’t buy any kind of packed self-care products even including shampoo or moisturizers.

Like I used eco-friendly cleaning products for my house, I wore clothing also made by natural and local materials. I stopped doing shopping from well-known brands and from malls.

And so on… 


I have learned so many and I want to share what I’ve learned so far with you. I keep questioning, searching and exploring. I’m still open for new discoveries. That’s what I want to document here also. 

If you wonder my answers for the questions above, keep reading my blog!
