More about oil pulling
Oil pulling, also known as ‘kavala’ or ‘gundusha’, is an ancient Ayurvedic detoxifying technique that has been indicated in not only dental health, but also a range of systemic conditions and symptoms. It’s as simple as swishing a tablespoon full of coconut oil in your mouth for approximately 20 minutes to draw out toxins from the body to promote their excretion and it has also shown to fight against certain microbes (including cavity-causing bacteria and candida).
Some reported benefits include:
Overall improvement in oral health (including white teeth, healthy gums and fresh breath); detoxification; alcohol intolerance / hangover; protection against teeth cavities; improved breath (useful for halitosis); alleviation of headaches, joint pains, hangovers and skin conditions / issues (due to its detoxifying effect); sinus; allergies; PMS; chronic fatigue; mouth ulcers;
