It’s a simple process that should be done on an empty stomach. Most folks do it first thing in the morning before they eat breakfast. Natural oils work best and advocates generally suggest using either sunflower oil or sesame oil. Both of these oils are simple to obtain. Just make sure you get organic oils – often buying them in a health food store is best.
To start, take one tablespoon of the oil into your mouth. Once you have it in your mouth find a comfortable place to sit down where you won’t be distracted. Once sitting, close your your eyes. Slowly begin to move the oil around in your mouth. Lightly swish it. This becomes much easier once you get used to it.
When you have the oil in your mouth, be sure you do not swallow it. Simply swish it around in your mouth a few times every minute. It won’t hurt if a few drops go down your throat, but it would be better to spit it out than to swallow it.
Continue doing this for about twenty minutes. The longer you hold the oil in your mouth, the thinner it will become. After approximately twenty minutes your mouth should feel full. Once that happens, spit the oil out into the sink.
The oil should be pure white if it has done its job effectively. If the color is more of a yellow, you didn’t hold it in your mouth long enough.
The next step is to thoroughly clean your mouth and wash out the sink thoroughly with hot water and some soap. Why? Because the oil you spit out contains lots of mucous, bacteria and germs. Wait another ten minutes before you eat anything. You may want to drink a glass or two of water to make your mouth feel normal again.
What does this method do?
It “pulls” germs, bacteria and other toxins from your body and places them in your saliva. It is a natural way to detoxify your system. You can perform it two to three times a day if you feel it is necessary. It must be done on an empty stomach, however, so you must wait at least four hours after eating, and an hour after drinking water or clear liquids. Wait two hours after drinking juice or any other heavier liquid.
Some folks who begin using this pulling method find certain conditions become more aggravated at first. As they continue the process for a few days, however, things getter better. If your condition continues to worsen, stop the practicing it and consult your doctor.
It is a natural way to detoxify your system that is safe and effective. You will find it is not difficult once it’s part of your normal routine. The health benefits far outweigh any temporary discomfort.
