Have you heard of oil pulling? Long known, but not often advertised, the process of oil pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic ritual. The practice has been around for an estimated time of over 3,000 years and has been practiced by many Native people! The practice of oil pulling (also called gundusha) started in India thousands of years ago and was first introduced to the United States in the early 1990s by a medical doctor named Dr. F. Karach, who used it with success in his medical practice.
The basic idea is that oil is swished in the mouth for a short time each day and that this action helps improve oral health since oil is able to cut through plaque and remove toxins without disturbing the teeth or gums.
The process involves swishing around organic oils in your mouth for 5-20 minutes every day before spitting it out.
