Oil Pull Promotes Health

Ever wake up with a bad taste in your mouth?

The Oil Pull is a simple and inexpensive practice that can improve your health buy reducing toxicity. Reducing toxicity almost always increases and improves your energy. Here’s how you pull oil:

Swish up to a tablespoon of oil–depending on the size of your mouth–for ten to twenty minutes. Swish it around through your teeth too. Spit out the oil and rinse your mouth or brush your teeth. Use good quality, raw oil. Sesame, virgin coconut, and sunflower are usually recommended. I use and like Biotics’ Mixed EFAs.

Oil pulling is said to cure a wide range of diseases and conditions. Some people develop detox reactions when they do it, feeling worse at first and later much better. Reaction shows that the practice is powerful.

Pulling Oil feels good. Whether or not Oil Pulling is a panacea, it is a natural way to remove toxins. This makes it a wise idea, particularly if you get an unpleasant taste in your mouth, swollen tonsils, bleeding gums, or have old fillings leaching metals and bacteria into your body.

Most health issues are related to toxicity, so Oil Pulling may be beneficial. It provides cumulative benefits with repetition. I have read a number of accounts from people who claim that the Oil Pull has cured serious diseases. While I cannot give you statistics, the following advantages make sense.

Pulling oil helps:

  • Absorb toxins from gums, teeth, and tongue so you don’t swallow them
  • Help draw off oil-soluble stains from teeth, whitening them
  • Strengthen your gums
  • Reduce heart risks associated with gum disease
  • Stimulate the metabolism through the nerve-to-brain response that occurs when a substance is in your mouth

Why is doing the Oil Pull better than simply brushing your teeth?

  • Oil penetrates into the fatty surfaces of your gums and cells
  • Feeds and strengthens tissues
  • Stays in your mouth long enough to draw out toxins
  • Seeps in to hard to reach places

I used to have chronic tonsil inflammation. This quit being an issue since I began pulling oil. My teeth feel stronger and cleaner.

Try it out for yourself, and let us know what you experience!

    Thanks Teresa! I was recently wondering about this, so great timing.

    I’ve tried this with sesame oil for the first time and what came out certainly looked different than how the oil started.

    I’ll keep doing this for awhile and come back with any feedback. If there are any general thoughts on frequency of pulling I’d like to hear that too.

    Thanks again Teresa!

      Hi Kevin! I think it’s great to do the oil pull daily for a number of days, a few weeks, or even a few months. If you feel toxic, less than well, or wake up with a bad taste in your mouth I would use the pull until this passes.

    I just tried it and the mouth and the gums feels very nice. Thank you.

    This sounds like fun, I have some raw almond oil in the fridge at home I don’t use – Can I assume this will work fine?

    Either way, now I know how I’m spending my evening!

      Thanks for your comment Shannon.
      Should work fine.
      The technique is more effective when done in the morning, as toxins build up during the night while your body rests.
      If morning doesn’t work for you, evening is better than not doing it.
      Good luck!

    I tried this for the first time today. I was pleasantly surprised to find there was no after taste. I drank water afterwards so I think I would have noticed if there had been an oily taste left in my mouth. So, I will do this for awhile and see what I notice.

    I do hope Kevin posts what, if anything, he notices as I’m interested.
