Oil Pulling for Health

New in Personalized Living Webzine:

Quoted Text
Oil pulling, an ancient Ayurvedic folk practice, dates back 3,000 to 5,000 years to traditional Indian medical remedies. Advocates claim swishing any type of oil in your mouth every day will whiten your teeth, reduce bacteria, strengthen your gums and jaw, improve your skin, clear your sinuses, prevent ?bad breath and even protect against heart disease.

I first heard of this years ago on this forum from Cristina in Australia!
Thanks to her, I tried it and am convinced it has much health value!

What about the teeth whitening? How does it accomplish that with stained teeth?

It is not a bleaching agent, so you won't get that intensity of whitening.  

The way I understand it is - the oil helps to dissolve biofilm so that whatever is "gummed up" onto the teeth will be able to be brushed and rinsed off.  I have found my teeth are no longer showing the stains of the green tea and raw vegetable juices that I drink.  They are not white, but not dulled by stains any more.

Also gums feel more firm and no inflammation around the tooth line.

Does anyone know if you can use any cooking oil?.  I don't think i would use olive oil since it's kind of expensive especially if i was to use a tbsp. a day just for oil pulling?.  Can i use a non-compliant oil for oil pulling?.

Thanks!

according to the article:
Advocates claim swishing any type of oil in your mouth every day will whiten your teeth, reduce bacteria, strengthen your gums and jaw, improve your skin, clear your sinuses, prevent ?bad breath and even protect against heart disease.

The idea is to spit it out after pulling, so you shouldn't be ingesting an appreciable amount.

I used to oil pull many years ago, and sunflower or sesame oil seemed to be the most recommended oils to use (the info came from Earth Clinic). However, many people that posted about their results tried different oils depending upon their preference or desired results. I used sunflower oil just because it was cheap. My primary reason for pulling was to control migraines and I actually occasionally pulled during migraines and had them disappear immediately afterwards. I also generally felt more energetic on the mornings I pulled, versus the mornings I didn't.

The article did not mention that a person should only oil pull on an empty stomach, including no liquids for a minimum of 1 hour prior to pulling. Also, be warned that you ABSOLUTELY should not swallow even the smallest amount of the oil during pulling as you will be swallowing the toxins you're seeking to draw out of your body. Also, do not spit in the sink but in the toilet and flush immediately as you don't want those toxins/germs living in your sink or around the drain, unless you're prepared to thoroughly clean it every time you spit.

I have used olive oil, sunflower oil, coconut oil and now use almond oil. All work!
