Oil-Pulling Therapy Likely Benefits Overall Health
An extraordinary amount of research has been conducted to determine the link between oral and systemic health. The mouth is the gateway to the rest of the body and there is no denying that poor oral hygiene is linked to other health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and stroke. Therefore, treating the underlying cause of poor oral health may also help with the management and prevention of other chronic conditions.
How To Oil Pull, simply:
Swish with 1 to 2 tablespoons of sesame oil in your mouth for 15-20 minutes.
If 15-20 minutes is too long for you, simply start with a shorter time and work up to the full duration.
While swishing, gently pull and push the liquid in and out between your teeth, making sure to coat your entire mouth.
For best results, tongue scrape before the practice of oil pulling, immediately after you wake up in the morning, before consuming any water or food or brushing your teeth. Do this at least 3 times per week. When finished, spit the oil out into paper and/or into the bin, then you may rinse with water, then brush your teeth.
For young children try massaging the oil into the teeth and gums with a clean finger or fingers for a few minutes then have them spit it out.
Important NOTE spit the used oil into the bin and do not swallow. Spitting the oil into a sink can potentially clog the drain.
As you swish the oil will be collecting toxins, bacteria and parasites. Because of this, it is not advisable to swallow the oil after swishing /or oil pulling.
Oil pulling is proving to be one of the most effective holistic approaches to oral health. This ancient and low cost remedy is preferable to using chemicals and manufactures mouth washes which may do more harm than good. Try it!
