Oil Pulling
Has anyone ever heard of this?


The method
In the morning before breakfast on an empty stomach you take one tablespoon in the mouth but do not swallow it. Move Oil Slowly in the mouth as rinsing or swishing and Dr Karach puts it as ' sip, suck and pull through the teeth' for fifteen to twenty minutes. This process makes oil thoroughly mixed with saliva. Swishing activates the enzymes and the enzymes draw toxins out of the blood. The oil must not be swallowed, for it has become toxic. As the process continues, the oil gets thinner and white. If the oil is still yellow, it has not been pulled long enough.It is then spit from the mouth , the oral cavity must be thoroughly rinsed and mouth must be washed thoroughly. Just use normal tap water and good old fingers to clean.

Sample testimonies of different disease cured
There are many testimonies of disease cured from different people, differing in age, sex and duration of disease. More examples are given in my book on “Oil Pulling and Healthy Habits”. Sample testimonies of chronic diseases cured are appended below for showing the curative effect of OP...."

Disappointing that it doesn't cure HCV. I thought for sure it would - it cures cancer.

HCV is such a tough one for oil to crack. Luckily, just a little dab will do you when it comes to curing heart disease and cancer with a spoonful of oil .

BACKGROUND: Oil pulling has been used extensively for many years, without scientific evidence or proof, as a traditional Indian folk remedy to prevent teeth decay, oral malodor, bleeding gums, dryness of throat and cracked lips, and for strengthening the teeth, gums, and jaws. AIMS: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of oil pulling with sesame oil on the count of Streptococcus mutans in plaque and saliva of children, using the Dentocult SM Strip mutans test, and to compare its efficacy with that of chlorhexidine mouthwash. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty age-matched adolescent boys were selected based on information obtained through a questionnaire. They were divided randomly into two groups: the control or chlorhexidine group (group I) and the study or oil pulling group (group II); there were ten subjects in each group. Plaque and saliva samples were collected from all the 20 subjects on the strips from the Dentocult SM kit and, after incubation, the presence of S. mutans was evaluated using the manufacturers' chart. The study group practiced oil pulling with sesame oil and the control group used chlorhexidine mouthwash for 10 min every day in the morning before brushing. Samples were collected from both groups after 24 h, 48 h, 1 week, and 2 weeks and the efficacy of oil pulling was compared with that of chlorhexidine mouthwash. RESULTS: There was a reduction in the S. mutans count in the plaque and saliva samples of both the study and the control groups. The reduction in the S. mutans count in the plaque of the study group was statistically significant after 1 and 2 weeks (P=0.01 and P=0.008, respectively); the control group showed significant reduction at all the four time points (P=0.01, P=0.04, P=0.005, and P=0.005, respectively, at 24 h, 48 h, 1 week, and 2 weeks). In the saliva samples, significant reduction in S. mutans count was seen in the control group at 48 h, 1 week, and 2 weeks (P=0.02, P=0.02, P=0.008, respectively). CONCLUSION: Oil pulling can be used as an effective preventive adjunct in maintaining and improving oral health.

Now that's plausible, unlike the first link. Interesting, too. And cheap.

Many people clean their teeth very effectively with tree twigs.

Slightly off topic but it may be worthwhile dropping this link here.  Its a warning about mouthwashes.  I would also think that for anyone with advanced liver staging putting alcohol in ones mouth and letting it soak may be ill advised.

http://www.news.com.au/dailytelegraph/story/0,22049,24896583-5001021,00.html

-------------------------
No clue on the "oil washing" Rocker, but it reminds me of how mayonaise is made; put water and oil in a blender and *let it rip*.  The fact that the oil seems to change in color would not signify that any detoxification has taken place.  Actually, if there are no toxins present you may have a "natural and homemade" *near mayo*.  Add some salt and a wee bit of lemon and it might be good with tuna, lettuce and wheat bread.  It's what's for dinner.  ; )

Interesting topic.... but for me I would be most careful of what we put into our body and less interested in how to get it out.  ; )

LOL; that advice is SO good that I should follow it.  : )

best,
Willy

Have I ever heard of oil pulling? Let's just say I'm a vibrant and virile male, living alone for the past two years....

Wonder if it would cure hemorrhoids, and where you put the oil to make that work?

Maybe it would work for hemorrhoids.  Although the mixing with saliva and the requisite swishing could be problematic. As to the spitting...

Included in the list of cured diseases - "Piles-27 cases ".
It doesn't mention anything regarding treatment protocol - where the oil goes - but I wondered the same thing. My interest was triggered when I saw the term "piles". I can't recall that term ever being used in a "medical" context. In fact I can't recall that term used in any context for at least a couple of decades. I think that might say something about their target audience.

Goofy: "Wonder if it would cure hemorrhoids, and where you put the oil to make that work?"

I'm not sure about the answer to that but as follow-up, Rocker pointed out in his opening post:

"Just use normal tap water and good old fingers to clean."

Mike: Congrats on making the connection with hemmies and piles. I missed it - must be an age thing :)  I bet you know what a carbunkle is too?

Actually on piles, my grandfather used to take an overweight pediatrician fishing with us in a Boston Whaler  - a boat known to go over waves rather than through. On every big bounce Ol' Doc Joe would say "Ooooooch.... That was a real pile driver...."

Funny portann :)

FLdude - I think they call that feltching in Florida.

Thanks for the tips. I can sure see how the slipperies could help with the 'roids, especially on those sweltery days.....

I can tell ya this, the duct tape and the 'roids ain't good bed fellows. The tape holds them up in place pretty good, but sooner or later it's gotta come off, ya know? The only positive was my gal at the waxing salon gave me 30% off that month (I don't think she much cares for negotiating around the 'roids - she was happy to see a little DIY activity).

Use mint dental floss to tie around the roids until the blood supply to roid is cut off and it falls off. The mint will help sooth the extremely painful burning sensation as a result of this use of  floss. Then apply wd40 to minimize formation of scar tissue where roid once was.

"waxing salon gave me 30% off that month " ...dang, here I thought they were giving me a discount because I had less hair due to the riba...now I find out it was cause of the DIY action on the duct tape! I feel so robbed! ;-)

Thx for the article worth looking into in my opinion.
Especially since there seems to be no profit for the writers involved.

God is eternal (He who was and is and shall come) and so is his Kingdom  and I am starting to belive that maybe  the leaves that can cure all sickness already are available.
Tomato  (lycopene) for instance could be one I eat tomato soap with carlic every day  I dollar gives me soap for three days.

I`m gonna look into this  further.

I have cried laughing and am going to save this thread forEVER to remind me of this site and the beautiful rapport that goes on here.

I would have thought that all that wrote were tx'g at the time, but alas, no.....  it is just the quirky nature of tx'ers, heppers,  and ex-tx'rs in one bountiful terrific thread.   AND when you read through, it's almost as if each of us was talking to ourselves rather than each other.

Priceless;  I love you all :-).

Good suggestion on the *mint* floss. I was able to reuse it with very little discernible after taste -- but next time I'm gon'a try giving a cool water rinse when I switch from then lower cheeks to the upper.
