Note: This is my personal blog. I have been practicing oil pulling for more than a month and has seen positive changes in me. I am not a doctor or a qualified nutritionist.
Why Oil Pulling?
We inhale polluted air and eat unhealthy food which leads to accumulation of toxins in the body. Do not be surprised if we tell you that the toxins from the sandwich you ate last year are still in your body.
The toxins are transferred to different organs through blood stream causing different diseases. When toxins stick to the layers of skins, they cause acne. If they get accumulated in intestines, constipation happens and it continues.
The important question is how do we remove toxins from our body and detox it following a cheap, quick yet effective method?
The easiest way to detox the body is to practice Oil Pulling.
How do we do Oil Pulling?
Every morning on an empty stomach, I take a tbsp of cold pressed virgin coconut oil in my mouth. You can use other cold pressed oils as well such as sesame or mustard oil.
I swish the oil left and right for 20 minutes. I started with two minutes and eventually increased the time to 20 minutes, being careful not to swallow any. Rinse your mouth well using water before eating or drinking anything.
Does it sound like too much of time?
As I swish oil in my mouth, I prepare for my breakfast and do other stuff. I chop veggies, make the bed, and 20 minutes are over.
Spit the oil into a trash can once you’re done. The oil turns into white milky liquid bringing out the toxins not only from your mouth but from the body too.
Avoid spitting it into the sink or toilet it may lead to clogging.
How Oil Pulling helps in removing waste from all body parts?
When you combine oil with water, they separate. But when you combine oil with oil, they combine. Microorganisms in our body are covered in lipids (fats). So oil attracts oil, when we spit out the oil, all the bacterial waste in our body is also thrown out.
How Does It Happen?
Our tongue is attached to different organs such as kidneys, lungs, heart, small intestines, spine and more. Your mouth is the mirror of your internal health. When you oil pull, all toxins are attracted through the blood veins connected vis tongue and are removed from the body.
Benefits of Oil Pulling:
Great Oral Health
Great for facial muscle exercises. Say hello to an attractive jawline.

All in all, if there is no waste in your body, you tend to be a disease free person. Kids and pregnant woman can also do it.
Precautions for Oil Pulling
Do not swallow the oil during oil pulling. This oil contains bacteria & toxins. Plus, the oil should not be spitted in the sink; it will clog the pipes. Spill it into a trash can only.
Brush your teeth followed by the oil pulling.
