Open Google and type ‘oil pulling’.
I know you’re too lazy, but that’s ok, stay here. I only asked you to do it, becasue you would see how many websites and articles there are about oil pulling. But here, I will tell you about my journey with this healthy habit.
About three years ago I was at the dentist to cure all my teeth. My sister did the same at the same dentist and at the same time. After about two years later my sister went to the same dentist to do the check up and she found out that she had three cavities. I thought I’ll do the same, because I was about to move to another country so it was a good idea to do it before leaving.
In the meantime (in these two years in between) I discovered oil pulling which I was doing every day for twenty minutes in the mornings. When I got out from the dentist’s office, I was so happy, because I didn’t have to make any more appointments! Trust me I don’t like going to the dentist, but luckily she told me that all my teeth were fine!
So ladies and gentlemen I really recommend you oil pulling, which you can do with coconut oil (you can find one here on Amazon and it’s the best one or sesame seed oil if you don’t like coconuts). You put a spoonfull of it in your mouth and you swish it around for 15-20 minutes (if not at least 15 mins then try less, better some than nothing). Do not swallow the oil while swishing, because all the toxins and bacteria will go right back into your system. After this time spit the oil into the trash can, because otherwise if you do it into the sink, the oil may thicken and clog pipes. Also it is best to do it in the mornings right after you wake up, but if you cannot then do it later during the day.
What are the benefits?
Well from my experience, for sure, less money spend on the dentist, but also there’s an awful lot of it: whiten and strengthen your teeth, draw out the oral bacteria (so you won’t have bad breath anymore), of course prevent cavities. It’s also good when you have a hangover, it helps you with the headache and helps your body to get rid of all the toxins. Also, which might be a little surprising, it boots your immune system and prevents heart disease.
Give it a try, you can do a lot of stuff while swishing around the coconut oil and if you want to say something to someone well you can play the charades ;).
