What Is Oil Pulling?

Read Transcript

Oil Pulling is, one of the simplest and oldest detoxification methods. And, its fantastic! Because you actually get to use your mouth for something good, rather that just using it to put, toxins in your body. It's very, very simple to do, all that you need to do, is take about 1 to 2 tablespoons of oil.

Typically, we recommend using sesame oil, but if you have an allergy to sesame or can't tolerate, you can also use sunflower oil. Swish it around your mouth for 10 to 15 minutes. What I typically do is, put in my mouth first thing in the morning, and then go about and take my shower and get ready, and then spit it out and brush your teeth afterwards.

The way that Oil Pulling works, is, salivary glands, naturally concentrate toxins, and the oil, pulls the saliva right out of those glands and captures the toxins so when you spit the oil out you're actually taking the toxins from the salivary gland and spitting them out with the oil.

I typically do this on a daily basis to make sure that my body doesn't accumulate toxins just for my daily routine, you can brush your teeth immediately after so you don't get that oily fountain you know you've done it properly if it's white and frothy and you can take a look at your tongue and if there's any increased areas where you have a white build up, those are corresponding organs in the body that have just released more toxins.
