The practise of oilpulling

Digestion starts in the mouth. A healthy mouth ensures that digestion starts in a good way. The mouth also plays an important role in the immune system. The mucous membranes form a first defensive barrier between the inner and outer world. Oil pulling is a natural alternative for chemical mouthwater, but with way more advantages.

What the bleep is oilpulling?

Oil pulling is also called kavala graha and it is done with coconut oil or sesame oil in the morning on an empty stomach.

This practise can stimulate overall and certainly also oral health, so you can use this originally Ayurvedic naturopathic technique for periodontitis too. Last month, a blog on periodontitis came online. You can find this blog under the header health.

Once your mouth is free of pathogens, your digestion will also improve. Did you know that your every tooth is connected to a specific organ? Our bodies are so miraclously intelligent!

The reason you use coconut oil or sesame oil for this valuable detox technique, is because these oils are antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal by themselves. These oils extract toxins from the tissues surrounding the teeth and even from the jaw.

How do you practise oil pulling ?

You take a tablespoon of coldpressed, biological coconut or sesame oil in your mouth. Move the oil through your mouth and also move the oil  through your teeth, during 15-20 minutes. After those 15-20 minutes, your spit out the oil and brush your teeth thoroughly. Be aware of the fact that the oil you spit out, is full of toxins

Have fun practising! Feel free to leave a comment with your experiences.
