Oil Pulling

Testimony of the Day

This testimony is from one of the Webinar class participants from my Maximize Your Metabolism class from last Sunday night:

“Thank you, thank you, thank you!  My first suggestion was going to be to have these (classes) more often, but I saw this morning you have another one on the 13th and I am already signed up!  Yeah!

Also, I know you are busy, but I wanted to tell you really quickly that you have been a miracle in my life. I will spare you the details, but after two weeks of following the meal and supplement plan you provided for me I am a new person!  In one day you diagnosed my issues that doctors couldn’t figure out over the last 20 years.  Who knew my issues were hormone-related?!  For the first time in years, I finally feel balanced and happy.  I can never thank you enough.  I have been telling all of my family and friends about you.

The webinar last night gave me that little boost of encouragement to continue with your plan.  It was just what I needed. I have devoured all of your books (multiple times) and I am looking forward to your new one.  There is something about hearing you live though that really gives me that extra boost.

Thank you for being such a blessing (and answer to prayer) in my life! – Cami”

Oil Pulling

I know that this sounds crazy, but swishing coconut oil in your mouth for a few minutes a day is an extremely healthy and tasty daily regime that I like to practice. It is extremely easy too; place a tablespoon of coconut oil into your mouth and swish it around as if it were mouthwash (if it is solid, it will melt in your mouth). Just like brushing your teeth, when you do something 16 days in a row it becomes a habit! My suggestion is to toss your mouthwash filled with chemicals and replace it with a jar of coconut oil.

Here are some of the reasons why you should start oil pulling today:

1. Removes bacteria, parasites, and toxins that live in your lymph system. Coconut oil in particular has antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and enzymatic properties which is why I suggest pulling with coconut oil over other oils. It helps kill Streptococcus mutans, an acid-producing bacterium that is a major cause of tooth decay. It also clears up Candida, which can cause thrush.

2. It relieves congestion and mucus in your sinuses and throat.

3. Re-mineralizes teeth and strengthen gums.

4. It clears up skin issues like psoriasis because the pulling detoxes toxins which boost the immune system.

Coconut oil serves several purposes. Its butyric acid is known to increase T3 uptake by glial cells. It has a general pro-thyroid action, for example by diluting and displacing antithyroid unsaturated oils, its short-and medium-chain fatty acids sustain blood sugar and have anti-allergic actions, and it protects mitochondria against stress injury. So if you are like me, get yourself a gallon since you will be using it so much, it helps save money. I get mine HERE.

    I have a question about oil pulling? Do you spit out the oil when you are done swishing it for a few minutes or is it safe to swallow? I know coconut oil is excellent for you and I was just wondering if the oil is contaminated after all the swishing?

  • Cynthia says:

    Where’s the scientific evidence for these claims?

    • will3 says:

      Cynthia, like some of the great habits we all subscribe to, we don’t reference the ‘scientific evidence’; we just do it b/c it appeals to us. However, I am a chemical engineer & totally understand where you’re coming from. I’d love to see what you may find while you research it, as I’m sure it’d be worth sharing by helping others to add into their routine (or not). 🙂

  • Sharron Timmins says:

    Did I read somewhere about oil pulling causing problems for those with lots of dental work; like loosening fillings and caps? Have you heard anything on this?

    • cemmerich says:

      I have heard those rumors, but haven’t seen any solid evidence. My guess is that if a filling if bad or almost loose, it could make it worse. 🙂

  • shannon says:

    How many minutes do you recommend swishing for the pulling to be effective?

  • Sally says:

    I read two articles today that suggested swishing for 20 minutes. This seems like a long time. I’m guessing since you only swish for 3 minutes, you don’t think 20 minutes is necessary?

  • Shannon says:

    I swish for 20 minutes and, boy, does it help my sinuses and ears. Sometime I forget, too, and within a few days I feel gross which, to me, used to feel normal! Yuck!

  • Jamie Rebecca says:

    I have attempted to start oil pulling 3-5 minutes a day. I have two fillings from when I was a teenager. I have never had problems with them. Days where I oil pull, my one filled tooth just throbs all day! I didn’t pull yesterday, no tooth problem. I did this morning… tooth hurts! I don’t know what to do about this!

  • Jen Martin says:

    Do you brush your teeth before or after?

  • Vicki says:

    Thanks Maria. I ordered a Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil 1 pint (16 FL. oz.) – glass jar and was sent a free book Virgin Coconut Oil by Brian & Marianita Jader Shillhavy along with it.

  • Malainie says:

    Does it matter what time of the day to do this? Is it better done on an empty stomach?

  • Sue says:

    Does MCT Oil work the same as using coconut oil?
