Health Benefits of Oil Pulling Oil Pulling can truly change your life! Oil pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic remedy where you swish oil (sesame, sunflower, or coconut oil) around your mouth for about 20 minutes and then spit it out. Over time you will get more comfortable with it and 20 minutes flies by. Oil pulling is incredibly effective for:
~Eliminating bad breath
~Whitening your teeth
~A clearer mind
~Clearing the sinuses
~Regulating menstrual cycles
~Improving PMS symptoms
~Improving the lymphatic system
Dr. Bruce Fife has written the book “Oil Pulling Therapy: Detoxifying and Healing the Body Through Oral Cleansing”. In the book he states: “The oil acts like a cleanser. When you put it in your mouth and work it around your teeth and gums it “pulls” out bacteria and other debris”
“As simple as it is, oil pulling has a very powerful detoxifying effect. Our mouths are the home to billions of bacteria, viruses, fungi and other parasites and their toxins. Candida and Streptococcus are common residents in our mouths. It is these types of germs and their toxic waste products that cause gum disease and tooth decay and contribute to many other health problems including arthritis and heart disease. Our immune system is constantly fighting these troublemakers. If our immune system becomes overloaded or burdened by excessive stress, poor diet, environmental toxins and such, these organisms can spread throughout the body causing secondary infections and chronic inflammation, leading to any number of health problems.”
How To Oil Pull
~Drink 1 cup of water on an empty stomach
~Place your jar of oil in warm water if you need to turn it back to liquid form.
~Before breakfast on an empty stomach, spoon a tablespoon of organic cold-pressed oil into your mouth and swish it around for 20 minutes then spit it out into the garbage.
~After 10 minutes the oil should begin to emulsify with your saliva and turn white.
~Never swallow the oil. The oil will be soaking up bacteria and toxins while you swish it around and “pull” it through your teeth.
~Swish water through your mouth to rinse and use a separate toothbrush to brush your teeth. To accelerate the healing abilities of oil pulling, it can be repeated 2-3 times a day, but always on an empty stomach. - Allie White
