Have you tried using oil pulling to improve your oral hygiene? Oil pulling is a traditional Ayurvedic natural method from ancient India that is relatively common in the West. More people are trying this method every day and a simple Internet search can show you what kinds of positive effects can be achieved.
Oil pulling is easy. Before eating breakfast and brushing your teeth, gargle a tablespoon of oil in your mouth for 15 to 20 minutes, then spit it out. It’s best to do this first thing in the morning because this method is meant to detoxify your system. Oral bacteria builds up in your mouth while you sleep, making the morning the best time to rinse. Why use the oil pulling method? Bacteria sticks better to oil than water, causing you to have a cleaner mouth in the end. Less bacteria means better breath, and better oral and general health!
What kind of oil should you use? Cold-pressed organic oil is the best. Cold-pressed sunflower oil and sesame oil are two of the most commonly used because they can easily be found in most grocery stores and are affordable. Coconut oil is also recommended by others. This method is safe for anyone older than five years old, and is even safe for pregnant women to use! Western clinical trials have proven that the oil pulling method clears the body naturally of many problems like constipation, insomnia, migraines, bad breath, and discolored teeth.
There are some precautions you should use when trying this method. Don’t practice oil pulling when you have a fever, conjunctivitis, after drinking alcohol, or after you’ve eaten. Don’t swallow any of the oil, or it could stimulate your gag reflex and will be full of bacteria from your mouth. Once you’re done, you can rinse your mouth out with salt water. Of course, don’t forget to brush!
