Blog 12–Oil Pulling?

With my blog writing I will be writing things that have helped in my life. These are suggestions for you to try, I think you will be surprised at how this can help. Before finding out about oil pulling (which is the process of pulling and swishing various kinds of oil through your teeth for your health’s benefit) I knew nothing of it.

For a number of years now I have done this method. Never have my teeth felt better or been whiter. I feel it has improve my general overall health. And, this helps me feel better, too. I was to thank:

In the morning most every human I know wakes with morning breath (if you are not human, please stop reading this.) This smell and feel in your mouth are bacteria that have gathered overnight. You see, we have trillions of microbes in and on our body. These bacteria are in our bodies doing all sorts of things. Many of these bacteria are good, there are bad also. There are kinds of bad bacteria in our mouth that cause tooth decay, discoloration and bad breath. These are the bacteria we want to get rid of.

What is oil pulling?
Oil pulling, also known as “kavala” or “gundusha,” is an ancient Ayurvedic dental method that involves swishing about a tablespoon of oil (I use coconut oil, it is the most popular) in your mouth on an empty stomach for around 20 minutes. This action supposedly draws out toxins in your teeth and body, primarily to improve oral health but also to improve your overall heath.

The bacteria in your mouth are attracted to oil, they cling on when you are swishing it through your teeth. After about 20 minutes you spit it into a trash can or on the ground outside. You see, at below about 65 degrees Celsius coconut oil turns into a solid-like wax-type substance. If you spit it into the sink or toilet it could cause problems, then you would come after me and I could get hurt.

After getting rid of the oil, rinse your mouth with water, then brush your teeth.

On the subject of brushing teeth, I do not use the store bought kind with florid and other harmful stuff.
I make my own using coconut oil. Take a look:

The technique:
When the coconut oil is warmer and liquidy, I add a natural peppermint flavoring and some baking soda, which is good for your teeth. I keep a large container of this mix that will last for many mornings.

When I first awaken in the morning, before I eat anything, I put a spoonful of coconut oil in my mouth. While swishing it around and pulling it through my teeth, I work on other stuff. After this time, it exits me into a container or on a lawn.

The results:

After about a month of doing this, I felt a change. It was pleasant again to rub my tongue on my teeth. Every night I brushed my teeth, this made my teeth feel even better.

You will find that your teeth are whiter, too.

Along with the teeth, I have felt healthier, too. I’ve not had to go to a doctor about feeling sick for a number of years.

Try this for a week or two and let me know the results you find.
