Simple Oil Pulling Detox For Whiter Teeth and Body Cleanse

Simple Oil Pulling Detox For Whiter Teeth and Body Cleanse

Improve your oral hygiene and cleanse your entire bodily system with this 15 day oil pulling detox programme 

The average person is walking around with a toxic overload that manifests in many ways. Every day our bodies are bombarded with toxins; from the air, our water, our foods, our cosmetics and even our thoughts! Even though the body has the ability to self-cleanse itself from toxins, it often gives us indications that extra help is needed. A person whose body is crying out for a thorough detox will display symptoms such as fatigue, weight gain, headaches, depression or illness.

READ: Signs that your body needs a detox

Have you heard of oil pulling? It's an ancient, very simple technique to deep cleanse your mouth and subsequently your entire body! It sounds too good to be true, right? As far fetched as it may seem, it's an Ayurvedic technique that has been promoted by various health gurus such as Dr. Deepak Chopra, Dr. Fife and Dr. Axe.

How does oil pulling work? 

Simply put, oil pulling is the process of swishing oil (coconut oil, sunflower oil etc.) in the mouth for 10 - 20 minutes, which in turn cleanses the mouth AND pulls toxins out through your inner mouth lining. You will then spit out the oil, i.e. spit the toxins out. Easy peasy! The beauty of oil pulling is in the simplicity of the process, as well as its dual functionality!

Dr. Fife explains in his book Oil Pulling Therapy, “Some people think I’m crazy when I tell them that oil pulling can help those with asthma, allergies, chronic fatigue, diabetes, migraine headaches, PMS, and chronic skin problems.”. Not only does it detox your liver and cleanse your entire systemic health, but it also improves your oral hygiene and leaves you with fresh breath and sparkling teeth! 

But how exactly does swishing oil in your mouth accomplish that?! Our mouths are teeming with microorganisms and toxins (the number of bacteria found in our mouths is usually between 1,000 and 10,000 on each tooth!), and acts as a gateway to our bloodstream. Particles that enter our bloodstream get carried around the body to all vital organs such as the heart, brain, kidneys, liver and more! The more toxins that we come into contact with, the more likely we are opening ourselves to health issues.

Oil pulling activates salivary enzymes which absorb chemical, bacterial and environmental toxins from the blood, which are then removed from the body through the tongue. Ayurvedic teachings and other holistic therapies believe that oral health and general health are interrelated. So, by detoxing the body through the mouth, disease-promoting toxins are eliminated and balance returns to the body, promoting health and well-being!

Additionally, by pulling pathogens out through your mouth, you will be left with healthier gums, whiter teeth, fresh breath and overall better oral hygiene! By doing regular oil pulling, you can say goodbye to cavities, gingivitis, halitosis (bad breath) and yellowing teeth. Who wouldn't want to try oil pulling?

Below we have listed the various, wonderful benefits of oil pulling:

  • Whitens teeth
  • Encourages fresh breath
  • Helps to prevent and relieve headaches
  • Assists with the negative effects of hangovers

    How to do an oil pulling detox 

    In his book Perfect Health, Dr. Deepak Chopra explains that oil pulling is an important way to start your day, by cleansing your mouth and your taste buds. It's best to do it before breakfast, and before you brush your teeth. Now, the important part is using a suitable oil pulling oil - it does not make sense to use chemically-extracted oil or poor quality oil for detoxification. There are many oils one could use such as Ozonated Organic Coconut Oil infused with Spearmint or Organic Hemp Seed Oil. You could even use plain old Olive Oil or Sunflower Oil (but organic if possible!)!

    One of our favourite brands, Cocobaci, has developed an oil pulling product that combines the wisdoms of oil pulling, virgin Coconut Oil and Gemmotherapy. Gemmotherapy is a form of herbal medicine that uses remedies made from the embryonic tissue of buds, shoots, seeds and other newly grown tissue of plants. These newly grown tissues contain specific plant enzymes and hormones which offer greater health benefits!

    Cocobaci makes their oil pulling oils from Quercus pedunculata (oak bud extract), a universal drainer for cellular detox, and is in addition an excellent remedy for periodontal disease and pyorrhoea (inflammation of the gums). Cocobaci has used integrated natural technology to take it a step further, adding aromatherapy that leaves your teeth clean and your breath sweet!

    Cocobaci Oil Pulling sachets are a simple, easy, tasty way to detox your body naturally every day that will leave you with a healthier mouth, healthier body and a bright, beautiful smile! It comes in a box of 15 sachets and various delicious flavours to choose from: Coolmint, Raspberry Kisses, Lemon & Fennel, and a box with mixed flavours!

    How to use the sachets of Cocobaci's oil pulling oil:

    • Open the sachet (best time is before breakfast)
    • Squeeze the contents out into your mouth
    • Swirl it around for 10 - 15 minutes (the longer the better)
    • Spit it out! DO NOT swallow. You don't want to swallow toxins just extracted from your mouth and body. It's best to spit into the toilet (you don't want to clog the drain).
    • Repeat the 15-day programme to see and feel the results!
