What Happened When I Tried Oil-pulling


I learned about the ancient #ayurvedic method of pulling #toxins out of the body by swishing a tablespoon of #organic #vegetable oil around your mouth for 20 minutes. I use #coconutoil or #almondoil. The oil should double in size as it ‘pulls out toxins.’ Supporters have reported whiter #teeth, healed gums, cured #headaches and #hangovers, #sinus relief and overall better #health.


Even after just one time, teeth and gums felt fresh and renewed. Face tingled. #brainfog lifted. And today, a week later, I did it and my right sinus opened up COMPLETELY! I have major sinus problems, so this is a big deal. And I know it was the pulling because I have taken no other remedy or done anything differently but that. So, I say, start swishing!

  1. Hi, @simplegreenme. Couldn’t help commenting on seeing your enthusiasm. If you wish to try out more of ‘kawal’ (That’s the technical name of the ‘oil swishing’ in Ayurveda, that you tried) try getting some ‘Irimedadi oil’ from from any Ayurvedic pharmacy and use it the same way. Though not as tasty as the others, it is the gold standard in teeth and gum care. Do let me know if you find it useful.
