And so, today’s obsession with coconut oil and the discovery of its multiple uses and benefits, the rise of oil pulling has been publicly encouraged. As well as detoxifying and improving oral health, systematic health benefits have also been considered. It has been claimed that oil pulling can enhance oral health, whiten teeth and generally improve overall health and well-being.
Oil pulling is a 3000 year old technique that originates from ancient, Ayurvedic folk traditions in India and Asia. The practice involves swishing or gargling oil around the mouth to remove bacteria and toxins from the oral cavity. Lasting anywhere from 30 seconds to 20 minutes (or longer), the process essentially reduces the amount of harmful bacteria in the mouth. This is through the pulling oil binding to the plaque that builds up on teeth; bacteria are absorbed. A variety of pulling oils have been used in the past such as sesame seed, linseed and olive oil.
There are numerous health benefits as a result of oil pulling. Naturally whiter teeth can be noticed even after a week of continuous oil pulling due to the oil pulling away food and drink stains as well as bacteria. The bacteria responsible for dental decay, gum disease, bone loss and other oral diseases are also removed in the process of oil pulling. Therefore there is an overall strengthening of the teeth, gums and jaws. As well as oral health, systematic health can benefit with conditions such as headaches, migraines, diabetes mellitus, asthma and acne minimised with regular use.
