How many of you have heard of Oil Pulling?
I certainly never heard of it until I read a blog post on it about 10 minutes ago. Apparently its an ancient Ayurvedic practice, thousands of years old. Basically its a natural, healthy dental treatment. You take about a tablespoon of oil(coconut, vegetable, Olive, etc) and swish it around the mouth (preferably first thing in the morning) for about 15-20 minutes. The oil pulls the bacteria out of your mouth and ever whittens your teeth. How cool is that? It has also improved mouth ulcers, poor gums, prevented cavities, and can detox your body too! Several people have had arthritis go away, allergy relief, sleep better ,etc. Everyone is different and it works fast on some people, slow on others. But according to the blog I read everyone sees improvment in something. I totally think its worth a try. Hubby has teeth issues and I get ulcers. So, well see how it goes.
Procedure: 1 TBSP of Oil (any kind) and swigh it around your mouth for about 15-20 minutes. Then rinse with water and brush your teeth.
If you try oil pulling come back here and post a comment telling me your thoughts, if it worked for you or any tips. I’d love to hear from you.
