Oil pulling is a simple, natural healing therapy from the age-old tradition called Ayurveda. This process was developed by Dr. F. Karach, M.D. (He wrote and presented a paper on this simple process at a meeting of oncologists and bacteriologists belonging to the Academy of Science of the USSR).
The process of oil pulling, where you swish inside your mouth and suck through your teeth cold-pressed oil (the recommended oils being sunflower and sesame) for 20 minutes is supposed to draw out toxins and eliminate germs in your mouth. This alternative remedy may heal chronic illnesses, which could prevent the need for surgery or medication with harmful side-effects.
Oil pulling works on the root cause of a disease which could take a while before you feel like you have achieved your desired results (how long it takes just depends on the individual). Oil pulling therapy is preventive and may well help to eliminate certain illnesses.
