Oil pulling is a new trend that everyone is doing, but it has been around for a while. According to WebMD,”This oral therapy is a type of Ayurvedic medicine [a traditional Indian system] that dates back 3,000 years,” says Jessica T. Emery, DMD, owner of Sugar Fix Dental Loft in Chicago.
What do I have to do?
Take a tablespoon of Coconut Oil and put it in your mouth, then swish it around for 5 – 20 minutes. Depending on if you can handle it or not. Start off at 5 minutes, then move onto 10 minutes, then 20 minutes. After the swishing, spit it out…DON’T SWOLLOW IT!!
Why is it so good for you?
Recent studies show that oil pulling helps against gingivitis, plaque, and microorganisms that cause bad breath.
** I told my dad about it and he’s been doing it for around a year. He claims that it helped his seasonal allergies!!
Hope this helps! xx
