Oil Pulling | What you should know
I know what you should know about oil pulling, but to me, oil pulling began booming out of nowhere. Maybe it’s because my natural journey came out of nowhere too, but hey it’s natural right? Well first off let me inform you on what Oil Pulling is. Oil Pulling, also known as “kavala” or “gundusha,” is an ancient Ayurvedic dental technique that involves swishing a tablespoon of oil in your mouth on an empty stomach for around 20 minutes. This action supposedly draws out toxins in your body, primarily to improve oral health but also to improve your overall health. From this I say YES! Let’s do this. All natural and Ayurvedic, what could possibly go wrong with that? I mean with all of these harmful things that we’ve done to ourselves over the years I say go for it. There is just one thing we must comprehend, the concept. When it comes to oil pulling there is more of what you should know.
ME natural what do you mean concept? Well in all things come understanding. Now I must say I’m a go for oil pulling, until one day I finally grasp some things that could possibly be the con to it, the not so good factor. I know, what could I possibly see wrong with a natural remedy. Your right, but I shall assist you on seeing both angles so that you proceed accordingly with oil pulling.
Oil Pulling is NOT and should not be an alternative to brushing your teeth.
I’m going to keep this very short and sweet by referring to the description of it. First off as instructed in the remedy it clearly says dental technique that involves swishing a tablespoon of oil in your mouth on an empty stomach. That is step one. The pro to this is that you can swish your mouth on an empty stomach. The con is what happens if you don’t swish your mouth on an empty stomach? Me personally, I have no clue. But according to the ancient remedy this is part of the process of detoxing your mouth. So, for everyone who decides to begin this, please have an empty stomach. Maybe this will benefit you in the end. I mean, if we are going to do something let us follow the care instructions. Okay? For sure. lol
Secondly it says to swish oil pulling in your mouth for around 20 minutes. To me that sounds like as close as you can get to 20 minutes as possible. So, if you don’t have 20 minutes, don’t be swishin’ no oil around your mouth thinking that you’re going reap the benefit…. Follow the instructions peeps!
Thirdly, if thirdly is a word. Lol. Keep in mind… the oil you use MUST be a pure natural grade… There are oils that are beneficial in this remedy we call oil pulling like ME natural oil pull. So don’t sell yourself short, go all the way…go pure.
Fourth and final, swishing oil in your mouth for around 20 minutes supposedly draws out toxins in your body. This is the con that strikes my attention. Why? Because it says it draws OUT toxins, which means it brings them to the surface. What’s bad about that Nova? Well how much toxin is in your body and mostly in your mouth? Do you use a truly all-natural toothpaste? Do you use all natural skin care products? Also do you intake, eat, clean? Why is that a factor? Only because I’ve had guest say that only upon detox of oil pulling their mouth got worse. Are you truly ready to face what you have in your body that you cannot see? Bleach can taint water, but can water taint bleach? Now I AM not saying do not oil pull. I’m simply saying proceed with caution. In order to go natural you are coming from somewhere. Could it be the world of chemicals? To the point proceed with minor caution.
If you are thinking of using natural remedies do the whole sha-bang. If your oil pulling use an all-natural toothpaste. Use all-natural skin care. If you can make and create your own do so by all means. MA’ther Net’ure “is” the cure, only if we have faith. PLEASE READ the ingredients on all of your products that you purchase. PLEASE COMPREHEND all the ingredients on all your products that you purchase. All things in moderation. Do your research on oil pulling about what you should know.
