This slippery detoxification method may seem oddly foreign to many of you at first but once you get used to it, the results can be amazing.
Oil pulling is among the easiest and most inexpensive health treatments you can do and derive a whole host of benefits. Claims have been made that through this detoxification process you can heal a whole host of issues, from migraine headaches, bronchitis, diseased teeth, arterial thrombosis, chronic blood disorders such as leukemia, arthritis and related illnesses, neuro physiological paralysis, eczema, gastro enteritis, peritonitis, heart disease, kidney disease, meningitis, to women’s hormonal disorders. It has also been shown to help with cancer, AIDS, and chronic infections.
As an added bonus oil pulling also helps boost metabolism leading to improved health overall. One of the most striking results of this process is the fastening of loose teeth, the elimination of bleeding gums and the visible whitening of the teeth.
Sounds great, right?
What is oil pulling, and how do you do it?
The first step is to choose your oil – Sunflower, Sesame, or Coconut – Preferably cold pressed. If you cannot find cold pressed oil, choose refined.
In the mornings, before breakfast (to accelerate the healing process, it can be repeated three times a day, but always before meals on an empty stomach) take one tablespoon of your chosen oil and put it in your mouth. Do not swallow it. Swish the oil slowly in your mouth like you would mouthwash. Suck and pull the oil through your teeth for fifteen to twenty minutes. This process can be done on a daily basis and there are no known side effects.
The swishing motion activates the enzymes, which draw toxins out of the blood. The oil must not be swallowed as it has become toxic. As the process continues, the oil gets thinner and turns more whitish. If the oil is still yellow, it has not been pulled long enough. When you reach the 15-20 minute mark spit the oil out in the sink, or outside. Rinse thoroughly with water or brush your teeth afterward.
You can leave it at room temperature (where it will be oil), or keep refrigerated if you are in a hot climate, and it will start as a solid, and melt in your mouth.
Once you are done, make sure to clean the sink properly as you just spit out a whole host of toxins and you certainly don’t want them back!
