Take about 2 tablespoons of oil when you wake up in the morning and before you eat anything. Swish the oil around your mouth, teeth, gums and tongue for about 15-20 minutes (yes, this is not a mistake – you can do it while you prepare yourself for the morning to come, while in the shower, watch TV, or while doing work around the house to help pass the time).
During that time the oil will have changed its color to whiter or yellowish color. Don’t swallow the oil, as the whole aim is to get rid of toxins, so if you swallow any oil, you put the toxins back into your body.
After 20 minutes spit all the oil out (it is recommended not to dispose the oil in the sink drain or the toilet, as the oil accumulates and can clog the pipes).
After spiting all the oil, rinse your mouth thoroughly with water and brush your teeth as usual and floss. After this is done, you can drink and eat as usual.
Dr. Andrew Weil, American medical doctor and naturopath, which writes about holistic health, asks in his website whether oil pulling is a realistic remedy. This is a good question especially when it involves a practice that consumes quite a lot of time every morning and is not particularly pleasant to do.
So the question “to pull or not to pull” still remains, and I will leave it up to you to decide. Have you tried oil pulling? Has it helped you? Share your experience with the readers.
