oil pulling


Three weeks ago I got a text from my daughter Emi asking if I did oil pulling in the morning. Hmm, whatever could that be? I asked myself. And wrote a text back saying “No, what is oil pulling?” She responded with this, “Put about 2 teaspoons of a high quality oil, coconut, olive, sesame, on a spoon, put in your mouth, and swish for 20 minutes.” Then she forwarded www.wellnessmama.com to me for a more thorough explanation – search “Oil Pulling for Oral Health.”

Wellness Mama has the oil pulling story down pat, here is a portion of it, and for the rest of the story, click onto the website.
“What is Oil Pulling?
Oil pulling is an age-old remedy that uses natural substances to clean and detoxify teeth and gums. It has the added effect of whitening teeth naturally and evidence even shows that it is beneficial in improving gums and removing harmful bacteria!

“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. Just as with Oil Cleansing for the skin, the principle of “like dissolves like” applies, as oil is able to cut through plaque and remove toxins without disturbing the teeth or gums.

“The practice of oil pulling started in India thousands of years ago, and from my research, was first introduced to the United States in the early 1990s by a medical doctor named Dr. F. Karach, who used it with success in his medical practice.”

Some people have said to me, “I can’t do that for 20 minutes every morning!” Actually, once in a routine it’s rather easy, and think of the benefits. Everything doesn’t have to come to a halt while you’re swishing. Keep doing what you normally do to get going in the morning, while swishing and swishing. AND after 20 minutes, spit out in a garbage can, rinse with salt water, and brush teeth.

Are you having a lovely Thursday? I hope so.
