Oil Pulling – an Ayurvedic Remedy for All Diseases

Ayurveda is an ancient Indian science of medicine and health.

Oil pulling, or rinsing the mouth with oil is a wonderful therapy suggested by Ayurveda. In this method, one table spoon of sesame oil or sunflower oil is taken into mouth. It is kept in the mouth for nearly 10-15 minutes, with vigorous rinsing. This way, oil mixes with saliva, and the consistency of the oil gets more and more watery. You should not swallow this oil, as it is believed to be poisonous. It is said to pull out all the bacteria, germs, etc, from the oral cavities, and clean the whole system.

This is done usually every morning, before taking any food or drinks. After keeping the oil and swishing for 10-15 minutes, it is spat out. The oil looks yellowish when you spit it out. Then rinse mouth with clean water, and then brush your teeth.

This therapy is said to cure practically all diseases –  ranging from diabetes to skin disorders, cancer, heart diseases, arthritis, joint pains, head-aches, and what not? The cure is almost miraculous  in all cases. You have to practice it regularly for atleast 1 month to see the results, however. It cures most of the mouth related problems, like bleeding gums, etc, and the teeth become whiter.

Though there are so many theories about how it works, in general, it is believed that swishing of oil in the mouth activates enzymes, and the enzymes pull out the toxins from the system and cleans the body. Thats why this oils is considered to have toxic substances, and so you should not swallow it while swishing.

This is too easy to try, and no side effects. So why do you wait? Start right tomorrow, and enjoy the miraculous benefits of oil pulling…
