How to Oil Pull While Removing Toxins from Your Body

Have you heard of oil pulling? Perhaps you’ve heard a friend briefly discuss their success with oil pulling but you’re unsure about where to start? Read on for successful tips to oil pulling and the benefits behind this toxicity cleanser!
First of all, what is oil pulling and what kind of oil do you use? Oil pulling originates from ancient Ayurvedic medicine in which you detoxify your teeth and gums by swishing around unrefined coconut oil in your mouth for 10-20 minutes. Along with the detoxification of your gums and teeth, oil pulling assists in teeth whitening, and reversing cavities and tooth decay! The process is simple and can be done before brushing your teeth, at night or in the morning!


1. Head to your local health food store and pick up a container of unrefined coconut oil!

2. Put 1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil in your mouth.

3. Swish for 20 minutes. The key is to keep the oil in your mouth long enough that the toxins don’t reabsorb into your gums, yet it still needs to be able to break through the plaque and tooth decay accumulated throughout the day.

4. Do not swallow the oil. The toxins released from your teeth and gums should never be ingested. After all, you’re cleansing your mouth- it’s best to dispose of the oil in your mouth in a trash can. Oil can coagulate in the pipes and cause drainage issues if you spit in the sink.

5. Brush your teeth with an anti-bacterial and fluoride-free toothpaste! If you are out of your natural toothpaste, you can mix baking soda with water and brush in a circular motion.

Oil pulling is a basic concept but reaps great results! Several emerging studies have shown oil pulling is responsible for the complete reversal of tooth decay and cavities, as well as eliminating excessive plaque and helping to cure gingivitis! If you are pregnant, nursing, or have dental issues, consult with your physician prior to oil pulling, as a precautionary step!

What is Oil Pulling?
An ancient Ayurvedic ritual dating back over 3,000 years, oil pulling involves placing a tablespoon of extra virgin organic cold pressed oil (organic coconut oil is an option) into your mouth and then swish it around for up to 5 to 15 minutes pulling it between your teeth before spitting it out.  Don’t swallow the oil as you will ingest the toxins you are trying to cleanse away.  Brush your teeth with an all-natural flouride-free toothpaste, and rinse your mouth out.
Why Oil Pulling?

With your mouth as the home to bacteria, fungus, viruses, and other toxins, the oil acts like a cleanser, pulling out the yukky stuff before they get a chance to spread throughout your body.
This cleanses the immune system, reduces stress, inflammation, and aids your well-being.
Top 7 reasons for making oil pulling a part of your daily routine.
1.  Whitens teeth
Oil pulling reduces the need for chemical teeth whitening strips.  The oil possesses natural antibiotic and antiviral properties that brighten and clean teeth.
2. Increases energy
When our immune sytem is put to work in clearing out toxic waste from our body, it drains our energy levels.  Removing the toxins by oil pulling lowers the amount of work our body has to do to function, which leaves us feeling better.
3. Detoxes the Body
Germs in the body are much like poison causing inflammation and leading to disease/illiness. The mouth is the gatewy for contamination to spread to the rest of the body.  When removing the toxins before they get a chance to spread, the body undergoes a complete detox.
4. Aids hormonal changes
Hormones can function as they shoud, functioning to the best ability without being thrown off balance.
5.  Reduces headaches
When the body is under toxic stress, headaches and migraines occur.  This is nature’s way of asking for some time to recover.  By eliminating bacteria or toxins from the body with oil pulling, headaches can be avoided.
6. Keeps the skin clear
Removing toxins from the body that would make it into the bloodstream means the skin has a chance to shine.  Rashes and skin issues often reduce dramatically and it some cases it can clear up completely.
7. Promotes oral hygiene
Oil pulling is highly effective at reducing tooth cavities and at eradicating bad breath.  It also aids with plaque-induced gingivitis.
When you start oil pulling, you might experience some of the positive effects immediately or it may take a few days or even weeks,  It will depend on your health condition.
