It took quite some time, but oil pulling finally become popular in the United States. Most of us cannot imagine what life would be without brushing and flossing our teeth at least once a day. But can you believe that brushing teeth only became part of our everyday practice since the late 1930s! During this time nylon toothbrushes became part of the typical American experience.
Traditionally oil pulling was used in Ayurvedic medicine. It is an amazing oral detoxification procedure done by swishing a tablespoon of oil (usually a coconut oil, olive or sesame oil) in your mouth for about 10-20 minutes. This process will also save you a lot of money and spare you from painful dental treatments. You don’t need to worry where you can find a pure organic coconut oil because you can order it on Amazon.
Oil pulling works by cleaning and detoxifying the oral cavity in a similar way that soap cleans dirty dishes. It sucks all the dirt and toxins of your mouth and leaves it free from bacteria also preventing cavities and disease.
This unbelievably useful procedure was used for centuries as a traditional natural remedy for many health and dental issues like:
- Tooth decay
- Bad breath
- Bleeding gums
- Heart disease
- Teeth whitening
- Throat dryness
- Cracked lips
- Boosting the immune system
- Strengthening gums and jaw
