Introducing Oil Pulling
What is Oil Pulling?
It is an age-old remedy that uses natural substances to clean and detoxify teeth and gums. It has the added effect of whitening teeth naturally and evidence even shows that it is beneficial in improving gums and removing harmful bacteria!
The practice of oil pulling started in India thousands of years ago and was first introduced to the United States in the early 1990s by a medical doctor named Dr. F. Karach, who used it with success in his medical practice.
This oral detoxification procedure is simply done by swishing a tablespoon of oil (typically coconut oil, olive or sesame oil) in your mouth for 10-20 minutes.
Oil pulling works by cleaning (detoxifying) the oral cavity in a similar way that soap cleans dirty dishes. It literally sucks the dirt (toxins) out of your mouth and creates a clean, antiseptic oral environment that contributes to the proper flow of dental liquid that is needed to prevent cavities and disease.
Benefits of This Unbelievably Effective Procedure:
- Kills bad breath
- Cures tooth decay
- Heals bleeding gums
- Prevents heart disease
- Reduces inflammation
- Whitens teeth
- Soothes throat dryness
- Prevents cavities
- Heals cracked lips
- Boosts Immune System
- Improves acne
- Strengthens gums and jaw
First, take two teaspoons and put them right in your mouth. Then swish your mouth with the oil inside ( like when you do after brushing your teeth) and simply spit the oil. It may not feel comfortable but that’s not the point.
How It Works
Most of us cannot even imagine what life would be like without brushing and flossing our teeth every day.
However, tooth brushing is relatively new since nylon bristle toothbrushes didn’t become part of our normal American experience until the late 1930s!
It’s important to remember that, in spite of the fact that most people in American today were all raised with toothbrushes in our mouths, our ancestors didn’t brush their teeth with toothpaste for thousands of years. And, as far as archeological evidence suggests, most people throughout history lived until a ripe old age with most of their teeth intact and in a strong, healthy state.
The point in oil pulling is that swishing oil draws the bacteria out of your system through the pores in your gums.
This theory is not scientifically backed. Although there is no evidence that oils do this to our system, science does suggest that oil pulling works and removes the bacteria out of your system. Recently there was a study that said oil pulling did significantly remove bacteria as well as the plaque.
Therefore, oil pulling actually can help you to remove bacteria out of your mouth very easily.
Moreover, seeing as flossing can reduce cancer rates by reducing the number of bacteria that is contained in your immune system, and oil pulling can do the same!
Should You Do It?
A lot of people have better teeth and breath and they are very satisfied to have found this remedy. The recommendation is to swill for a full 20 minutes, so prefer not to do this every day. Floss thoroughly, brush regularly and the results will come by itself.
