Oil Pulling… Weird or Wonderful? You Decide…

November 27, 2009 by Healthyhank

 Two years ago I was experiencing a “makeover” of my mouth… here I was in my late sixties with braces on, preparing for numerous implants and bone surgery :(.  Not a happy time.   An associate of mine sent an article about Oil Pulling.  Reading about this topic I decided to try doing this oil pulling process.  It just happened that I had completed one of my 3 month teeth cleaning sessions and this was a perfect time to start.  I was especially attracted to trying this, since they claimed that doing this for months could make my teeth firmer in my jaw bones.

Each morning I put a tablespoon of sunflower oil in my mouth and “pulled” it through my teeth and gums for about 15 minutes.  Not really unpleasant, just a bit of a funny sensation since my mouth was also filling with saliva.  After the time period I spit it out (it was now a milky white color), rinsed my mouth with water and then brushed my teeth.  I did this for months and then went to my scheduled teeth cleaning appointment.

My regular technician inspected my mouth and asked if I had come in since my last appointment?  No, I answered – why?  She said that my teeth were 90% free of tarter and my gums looked better than she had ever seen!  Wow, that was probably the first time in twenty years that I actually had good news from a dental office! 🙂

Another observation occurred when more work was being done by my dentist in the ensuing months.  He observed that there was a substantial increase in my saliva production.  This is a very healthy sign.  Also my teeth were definitely very firm in the bone. 🙂

As you study the information about Oil Pulling see pdf of Oil pulling you will see the opinions of this Indian doctor and he is serious about the benefits.  I don’t know much more than what I have read so you will have to be your own judge.  Interestingly 🙂 watch this Ad for Oil Pulling shown in India.

Oil Pulling is very safe, very inexpensive, simple and for me very effective.  You be the judge for yourself.  Sometimes these decisions can be very fruitful!  Be blessed
