Learn about the benefits of Oil Pulling - An ancient Ayurvedic detoxifying technique to support dental health & detoxify YOUR body!
Oil pulling is also known as 'kavala' or 'gundusha' and is a powerful ancient Ayurvedic detoxifying technique that has been indicated in not only dental health, but also a range of systemic conditions and symptoms!
Ayurveda is a traditional Hindu system of medicine (incorporated in Atharva Veda, the last of the four Vedas), which is based on the idea of balance in bodily systems. Ayurveda is still widely practiced today and uses diet, lifestyle, herbal treatment, and yogic breathing to achieve and restore health.
Oil pulling has been shown to fight against certain microbes (including cavity-causing bacteria and candida) and work as a body detox technique. Regular Oil pulling can transform your health and act as a cleanser, clearing out any unwanted bacteria before they get an opportunity to spread to other parts of the body, while promoting healthy teeth and gums!
Let’s take a look at 10 health benefits of oil pulling:
- Aids hormonal balance
- Detoxes the body
- Whitens teeth
- Promotes oral hygiene
- Keeps skin clear
- Increases energy levels
- Reduces headaches
- Boosts immune system
- Reduces sinusitis
- Reduces joint pains
So, how does it actually work? Oil pulling basically pulls all of the nasty toxins out of the oral cavity and creates a healthy environment, preventing disease and cavities. It is the most natural solution, according to science, to prevent tooth decay and loss, while also preventing systemic disease.
Did you know that different parts of the tongue are connected to different organs? We know that the tongue is linked to the spine, stomach, kidneys, liver, lungs, heart, colon and small intestines. No wonder the range of cleansing health benefits of Oil Pulling are so vast! What’s even more amazing is that it’s simple and inexpensive!
Here is a step-by-step guide on how to oil pull:
- Put 1-2 teaspoons of oil pulling oil directly into your mouth (or a convenient oil pulling sachet by Cocobaci in a variety of yummy flavours!)
- Swish the oil around in your mouth for 15-20 minutes. As you work the oil through your mouth, it will become more and more liquid and easy to ‘swish’.
- Once done, spit the oil into a dustbin as it can blog drains and toilets. The oil will also contain eliminated toxins and bacteria, which you don’t want to swallow!
- Rinse your mouth with warm water and spit out
- Repeat daily!
Oil pulling can become a calming daily routine if practiced regularly and mindfully – and one which therefore has multiple health benefits!
