Have you heard of oil pulling??  The terminology in our opinion doesnt really do it justice because it makes it sound quite a bit harsher than it really is.  Oil pulling is rather a simple, quick, harmless yet wildly powerful therapy.  An ancient Ayurvedic ritual, oil pulling was introduced to the western world in 1992 by a doctor by the name of F. Karach.  His theory was that this therapy had claims of curing a variety of diseases and ailments.  Many of these in upcoming years with proven success.  
So many benefits are linked with this therapy.  The oil acts like a cleanser that actually “pulls” debris and toxins etc from the body.  It has a powerful detoxifying effect.  We all know that our mouths are a breading ground for billions of bacteria ( not always the good kind!!), viruses and toxins, ya we know how appetizing eh!!  Sorry but its the truth 🙂  But this is why oil pulling can bring such positive results, starting in the mouth to help kill and rid the body of these little bugs.  Oil pulling is said to help with dozens of issues, these include:
Chronic Infections
Dental Health
Heart Disease
Stiff Joints
Weight Loss
And more!!
Oil pulling is safe and easy, children can practice as well.  Just give them a little less oil than you would yourself.
It is ideal to Oil Pull up wakening on an empty stomach.  We love using coconut oil but you can experiment with  different, healthy good quality oils that are your preference.  
Take a tablespoon of oil in your mouth and simply swish around for 20 mins.  You can be getting ready in the morning, checking your email etc.  At first 20 minutes may be seem long, so dont be discouraged just do the best you can and build your way up.  Don’t swallow the oil, if you get the urge just spit it out and try again.  Your jaw may get slightly tired and sore and if so then just try a little less oil in your mouth.  No need to swish too vigorously, a nice relaxing approach makes it much easier.  Holding your head slightly forward may also help.
After the 20 minutes simply spit the oil out and rinse out your mouth ( warm water with salt is nice as it can sooth any inflammation that may have surfaced, but certainly not necessary at all).  You may also choose to brush your teeth afterwards.  Your mouth should feel nice and clean now 🙂 Doing this everyday is great but a few times a week can also be enough.  There really is no time frame.  Some people have noted seeing positive results in days while others took longer.  Either way you know it is doing something beneficial so why not grab a spoon a pull!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. I’ve been oil pulling on and off for a year or so now.
    On and off, mostly because some mornings are pretty hectic and I just fly out of the house with out the time!

    I love, love, love it!

    I have definately noticed a difference in my head congestion and I just “feel” better!

    My oil of preference is coconut and I’ve been taking a few drops of tee tree oil or oil or oregano with it.

  2. It sounds simple enough, and if it works that is amazing…I

    will certainly give it a try. Do you use virgin oil, or will any grade. Of organic oil work?.:-)

    1. Organic is always the way too go, most high quality oils will do the trick we just love the coconut oil as it also provides added benefits through its anti-fungal etc. properties. It has a great nutritional profile so it tops our list ( not to mention it kinda tastes better)!! Cheers 🙂
