Oil Pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic practice that is as effective as it is mysterious. Many who write about this alternative healing modality are unaware of the much more significant and subtle benefits of this regular practice. However some, such as the www.oilpulling.com description that follows, have elaborated on some of the less obvious health improvements from oil pulling as follows:
Oil Pulling Results and Oil Pulling Health Benefits
“The result of this healing research has attracted amazement and resulted in further research. This additional research concerning Oil Therapy has now been thoroughly documented, especially with regard to physiological similarities between individuals. It is surprising that through this biological healing method a wide variety of symptoms have unquestionably disappeared without any side-effects. This simple method makes it possible to completely heal such a wide variety of diseases which would normally be treated by an operation or by powerful or potent Drugs, usually with significant side-effects.
The simplicity of this healing system in which Oil is swirled backwards and forwards in the mouth, is due to the stimulating effect which it has on the body’s eliminatory system.
Through this method it is possible to heal individual cells, cell conglomerates such as lymph nodes and more complex tissues such as internal organs simultaneously. This occurs because the beneficial microflora throughout the body are provided with a healthy continuum. Without this natural bodily intrusive element evinced by the microflora the usual pattern of human health tends to lean towards illness rather than wellness. Dr. Karach anticipates that regular application of this treatment by reversing this process so that wellness is the dominant state of the human body is likely to increase the average human lifespan to approximately 150 years, double the present life expectancy.
By means of this treatment – Oil Pulling – it is invariably the result that diseases like migraine headaches, bronchitis, diseased teeth, arterio thrombosis, chronic blood disorders such as leukemia, arthritis and related illnesses, neuro physiological paralysis, eczema, gastro enteritis, peritonitis, heart disease, kidney disease, meningitis, and womens hormonal disorders are completely eliminated from the organism.
The benefit of Dr. Karach’s method is that the oil therapy heals the whole body in perpetuity. In terminal diseases such as cancer, Aids and chronic infections this treatment method has been shown to successfully replace all others. Dr. Karach has successfully healed a chronic leukemia patient with 15 years of harsh treatment methods behind him. Acute arthritis in 1 patient who was totally bedridden was removed from his body in 3 days with no inflammation apparent.”

Many have asked us over the years how to best perform the method of daily oil pulling. The following 3 step method can be found at www.oilpulling.com. This website is quite authoritative concerning all things having to do with oil pulling.
Oil Pulling Method Step by Step
First thing in the morning on an empty stomach and before drinking any liquids (including water), pour exactly one tablespoon of sunflower or sesame oil (or whatever oil you have chosen) into your mouth. We don’t recommend doing this process at any other time. Children can also do this with less quantity of oil provided they have control and practice not to swallow the oil.
Swish the oil around in your mouth without swallowing it. Move it around in your mouth and through your teeth, as if it was mouthwash (don’t tilt your head back to gargle though). You’ll find that the oil will start to get watery as your saliva mixes with it. Keep swishing.If your jaw muscles get sore while swishing, you’re putting too much into it. Relax your jaw muscles and use your tongue to help move the liquid around the inside of your mouth. When you do this correctly, you’ll feel very comfortable. Pretty soon.
There is no right way or wrong way to swish and pull oil. Don’t focus on doing it right. Do it with very natural movement. Do this gently, not vigorously, in a relaxed way for about 20 minutes.
If you have the unbearable urge to swallow and If it becomes too unpleasant, spit out and try again. It can be a bit unpleasant at first when you’re not used to it, but soon won’t be bothersome at all, just like brushing your teeth.
When the oil has become saturated with the toxins it has pulled out, it may become whitish and a thinner, milky consistency, depending on the type of oil used. Each time you oil pull, it can take a different amount of time to get to that point, so 20 minutes is a general rule of thumb, but you can experiment with this.
If you spit out before 20 minutes. start again, the process is to make the oil swish enough time in your mouth so that it becomes a white thick substance which is a indication of process completion.
As the end of the oil pulling session approaches, Spit the oil out, then rinse the mouth with warm salt water. ( Just use normal table salt). Salt water rinsing isn’t absolutely necessary, but is very helpful as an antimicrobial and to soothe any inflammation and proven to be effective in rinsing out any toxins which may be left out in the mouth.
You can do the oil pulling every morning if you like, or several times a week. Because oilpulling method can be detoxifying, you might want to take a break sometimes. One immediate benefit everyone gets is, whiter teeth, clean mouth . There’s no rule about frequency – judge according to your own experience.
Please understand that this process works better in the morning. Don’t try to do this any time of the day. If for some reason it is absolutely not possible for you to practice this method in the morning, you can do this on an empty stomach at any time of the day. Empty stomach means the food is digested completely. Ideally after three or four hours of you taking any food. (Lot depends on the food you are eating).
The actual process of oil pulling in the mouth is really quite simple and easily explained.
Oil Pulling and Oral Health How it really works
How oil can make such miracle healing? You may ask, what is the scientific reason behind this? Here by oil pulling process the oil works as a natural cleaner for oral health. It is your body which is a healer here. Our body is programmed with the ability to heal from any infectious or degenerative disease. Oil pulling removes disease-causing microorganisms and toxins in the mouth that cause ill health. There is nothing secret about it; it is simple biology. Most of the microorganisms that are part of oral ecology in the mouth consist of a single cell with fatty membrane which is outer wall of cell.
When you are doing oil pulling fatty membranes of the microorganisms are attracted to the oil you are pulling or swishing. As you swish the oil around your teeth and gums, bacteria hiding under crevices in the gums and in pores and tubules within the teeth are sucked out of their hiding places and would be part of the thick foam which is formed after oil pulling. This is why you need to pull oil in your mouth for a sufficient enough time to pull all the microbes from the mouth and bond them with the solution. Your saliva and oil together can attract and pull all the food particles and cleans and free your mouth from bad substances and maintains overall health and body’s capacity to self heal.
What else can The Health Coach add in this first oil pulling session; the introductory explanations offered by www.oilpulling.com have been more than adequate. They really know their stuff and we would recommend their great site to all who want to learn more about and/or begin a practice of oil pulling.
Truly, our daily practice of oil pulling has made a world of difference in our oral health, general wellness and overall state of being.
