    Just heard something about it on the news and of course.....for every person with a positive thought, there's another telling you its bunk. Any thoughts?


    Oil pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic remedy for oral health and detoxification. It involves the use of pure oils as agents for pulling harmful bacteria, fungus, and other organisms out of the mouth, teeth, gums and even throat.

    I'm more experienced in "pulling" various fluids and organisms INTO my mouth and throat.

    i've used sunflower oil to do it and i although i don't believe it cures any of the ailments that proponents claim it does, it does actually leave your mouth and gums feeling really really good. so i do it once in a while just because it feels good to do it. but fyi the reason it turns cloudy after you swish for 20 minutes is because the oil emulsifies, not because it's full of toxins and impurities.

    Try it with organic, unrefined, extra virgin coconut oil. Don't gargle it, just swish it between your teeth.
