What is oil pulling? Oil pulling is an ancient Ayurvdeic natural remedy for improved health. It involves the use of pure oils to pull out harmful bacterial, fungus or other harmful organisms in your mouth, teeth or throat.
How do I do it? Put 1 tablespoon of oil in your mouth, either sesame or coconut (I use coconut because it have anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties). Swish around for 5-20 minutes. When you are swishing it becomes toxic so don't swallow. Make sure to spit it out in sink or toliet. Rinse mouth a couple of times.
There are many benefits to oil pulling. Here are a few:
: whitens teeth
: strengthens teeth, gums and jaw
: prevents cavities and gingivitis
: banishes bad breath
: relieves headaches
: helps you sleep better
: clears sinuses
: detoxifies the body
I must admit took a while to get used to it. 20 minutes is a long time but keep busy. Do something to distract yourself. Find a time that you can do it on a regular basis, either in the morning or at night. I have sinus issues so I'm hoping this will help.
