What is Oil Pulling?
Oil pulling has its origins in oil gargling practiced in Ayurvedic medicine and is an age-old remedy that uses natural substances to clean and detoxify teeth and gums. Dr. F. Karach introduced the current form of oil pulling in 1992 as a cure to a variety of illnesses ranging from heart disease and digestive troubles to hormonal disorders.
The concept is incredibly simple. Basically, Dr. Karach’s method of oil pulling consists of swishing a couple teaspoons of oil in the mouth for a period of 5 to 20 minutes and then spits it out and rinses well. The best time according to Dr. Fife is in the morning before eating breakfast, but it can be done any time of the day. The used oil is discarded and the mouth rinsed out with water. The oil is never swallowed because it is loaded with bacteria and toxins.
The basic idea is that oil is swished in the mouth for a short time each day and that this action helps improve oral health. Oil is able to cut through plaque and remove toxins without disturbing the teeth or gums, being similar to mouthwash. Oil pulling is incredibly effective in brightening teeth, healing gums, preventing bad breath, quenching inflammation, and healing oral infections. It is also effective in treating many systemic conditions throughout the body.
