What Is Your Mouth Saying About You?
I just came across this practice while following a serpentine trail of natural remedies. It was one of those ‘aha’ moments because, while I’d never heard of it, it made abundant good sense. I have had my issues with periodontal treatments including the very expensive cutting and packing the gums with antibiotic threads. It worked but I was determined not to fix but prevent any more mouth nasties!
Since the treatment I have bought a WaterPik and use it religiously. I was astonished after brushing for two minutes with my Oral B electric toothbrush and flossing that I still had ‘stuff’ that was whisked away by the WaterPik. I also began using either colloidal silver or oil of myrrh as a hygienic final rince.
However, I came to respect my mouth environment and to be more aware of immaculate care as a real tool for optimum health. Then along came this blog about oil pulling. It is an ancient Ayurvedic treatment that is inexpensive, simple and hugely effective. Here is a video that illustrates the procedure.
I tried it this morning for the first time. I was a little apprehensive with the idea of a mouth full of oil for 15 minutes, but the sesame oil was pleasant tasting and not too heavy. While shooshing I wrote an article about the art market. Before I knew it the alarm was going off.
Cleaning the sink and thoroughly rinsing out the mouth with clear water is important to finish the cleansing and send the nasties on their way down the drain. I did a final rince with colloidal silver for good measure.
According to Dr. Karach, he proposed oil treatment with Sunflower oil as a cure for all diseases. It appears to be a folk remedy for all diseases. He called it ‘pulling oil’. He said: “most different diseases could be totally cured without medicines or surgery. With pulling oil treatment I have cured my chronic blood disease with which I suffered for 15 years. It healed in 3 days an acute arthritis which made me lay in bed. Pulling Oil heals head-aches, bronchitis, tooth pain, thrombosis, eczema, ulcers and diseases of stomach, intestines, heart, blood, kidney, liver, lungs and woman’s diseases. It heals diseases of nerves, paralysis, encephalitis and chronic sleeplessness. It prevents the growth of malignant tumors, cuts and heals them”.
