Healthy Glowing Complexion from the Inside Out with Oil Pulling.
Oil pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic healing technique.
According to Wikipedia, “It is mentioned in the Ayurvedic text Charaka Samhita, where it is called Kavala Gandoosha or Kavala Graha. Ayurvedic literature describes oil pulling as capable of both improving oral health and treating systemic diseases such as diabetes mellitus or asthma.”
There are many other claims for oil pulling including detoxing the body, increasing energy, whitening teeth, clearing up acne and giving a glowing complexion. Those claims from Nutritionist and Naturopath Dr. Bruce Fife.
According to dermatologist and author Dr. Debra Jaliman “…oil pulling is probably most helpful for the gums, as it stops the growth of strep bacteria…” (quoted in Huffington Post)
How to do it
Rinse the teeth and gums very thoroughly with a tablespoon of coconut oil. Do it slowly for 15 to 20 minutes up to three times a day on an empty stomach. As our digestive juices dilute it, it becomes thin and milk-white in colour. Then, we spit it out and brush our teeth.
From oilpulling.com: “Dr. (med.) Karach said the Oilpulling heals totally ‘head-aches, bronchitis, tooth pain, thrombosis, eczema, ulcers and diseases of stomach, intestines, heart, blood, kidney, liver, lungs and women’s diseases. It heals diseases of nerves, paralysis, and encephalitis. It prevents the growth of malignant tumors, cuts and heals them. Chronic sleeplessness is cured.’”
Dr. Bruce Fife: “It acts much like the oil you put in your car engine. The oil picks up dirt and grime. When you drain the oil, it pulls out the dirt and grime with it, leaving the engine relatively clean. Consequently, the engine runs smoother and lasts longer. Likewise, when we expel harmful substances from our bodies our health is improved and we run smoother and last longer.” http://www.coconutresearchcenter.org/article%20oil%20pulling.htm
