Oil Pulling and the Healing it encourages.
Oil pulling has been around for many centuries, this simple health technique offers many different benefits.
Oil pulling isn’t complicated in any way, all you do is in the morning before you do anything, before you eat or brush your teeth, take a tablespoon of your choice of oil (I use Olive Oil.) and swish it around in your mouth for 20 minutes. The liquid in your mouth will increase in volume as you swish and this is because of all the saliva and toxins its pulling from your mouth and head. You must keep the oil moving constantly, you must keep swishing and try moving your jaws up and down a few times like you’re chewing the oil. You must NOT drink any of the liquid because then you would just be ingesting all the gross toxins you have been swishing to get rid of. After 20 minutes spit the liquid in the toilet and flush all those toxins away, then proceed to rinse your mouth with salt water and brush your teeth as normal.
Oil Pulling is known to help with many things like hangovers, severe headaches, sinus problems, cavities in your teeth and yellow teeth, the oil kills bacteria in the mouth. Some people have lost weight doing this, because of all the detoxing. If you decide to Oil Pull, it is very important to do it everyday. By doing it everyday, you should see a difference within 2 weeks. Your teeth will be whiter and emotionally you will feel uplifted.
My personal experience with it hasn’t been bad, the oil is a little gross and it takes getting used to but the healing makes it worth it. I can’t manage to do the full 20 minutes but I’m working towards it. My first session I only lasted 3 minutes with it in my mouth. I found the oil overwhelming but it will get better and easier to keep it up for longer.
The thing to remember is that it’s okay to start small, one tablespoon for three minutes is good enough. Just as long as you do start. The benefits are too great to ignore.
Let me know if any of you start Oil Pulling and how it’s going for you. I will keep updates coming and hopefully 3 minutes will turn into 10!
Hope this blog post finds everyone happy and healthy!
