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.

Oil Pulling Benefits

The most effective oil pulling is done by placing around a
tablespoon of cold pressed organic sesame oil into the mouth and
swishing the oil around the mouth for approximately 10-15 minutes and
then spitting it out.

Other oils such as extra virgin cold pressed coconut,
sunflower and olive oil have been used, although sesame oil is
considered one of the best oils for this practice. I recommend
alternating oils every couple of days to get the full benefit. Putting
high quality organic oils into the mouth has a multi-effect outcome.

First, the oils mix with the saliva, turning it into a thin, white liquid. Lipids in the oils begin to pull out
toxins from the saliva. As the oil is swished around the mouth, teeth,
gums and tongue, the oil continues to absorb toxins, and usually ends up
turning thick and viscous and white. Once the oil has reached this
consistency, it is spit out before the toxins are reabsorbed.

What does oil pulling do?

Multiple scientific studies show the efficacy of oil pulling
therapy. One study shows that oil pulling with sesame oil can boost
overall oral health. Specifically, using sesame oil as an oral health
agent helps to reduce the amount of S. mutans (germ) count in both teeth
plaque and mouth saliva. Scientists believe that the lipids in the oil
both pull out bacteria, as well as stop bacterial from sticking to the
walls of the oral cavity.

Oil pulling may also increase saponification in the mouth, creating a
soapy environment that cleanses the mouth as vegetable fat is an
emulsifier by nature. Most interesting is perhaps the ability of oil to
cleanse out harmful bacteria, as well as reduce fungal overgrowth. These
oils also possibly help in cellular restructuring, and are related to
the proper functioning of the lymph nodes and other internal organs.

Other possible benefits of oil pulling for oral health include:
•Overall strengthening of the teeth and gums and jaws.
•Prevention of diseases of the gums and mouth, such as cavities and gingivitis.
•Prevention for bad breath
•Potential holistic remedy for bleeding gums
•Prevention of dryness of the lips, mouth and throat.
•Possible holistic treatment for TMJ and general soreness in the jaw area.

Benefits Beyond the Mouth?

Ancient Ayurvedic health practitioners believed that oil
pulling could reduce more than just diseases of the mouth and throat.
Today, many holistic practitioners tout its use for a variety of health

It is believed that these oils help the lymphatic system
of the body as harmful bacteria are removed and beneficial microflora
are given with a healthy environment to flourish. Because of this
holistic perspective, oil pulling has been used as a preventative health
measure for many other conditions.

Other possible benefits of oil pulling for overall health include:

Oil Pulling
•Migraine headache relief
•Correcting hormone imbalances
•Reducing inflammation of arthritis
•May help with gastro-enteritis
•Aids in the reduction of eczema
•May reduce symptoms of bronchitis
•Helps support normal kidney function
•May help reduce sinus congestion
•Some people report improved vision
•Helps reduce insomnia
•Reduced hangover after alcohol consumption
•Aids in reducing pain
•Reduces the symptoms of allergies
•Helps detoxify the body of harmful metals and organisms

Scientific Studies on Sesame Oil and Oil Pulling

Sesame oil is particularly high in the antioxidants
sesamol, sesamin, and sesamolin. It also holds a high concentration of
Vitamin E and polyunsaturated fatty acids. These antioxidants have been
found to stop the absorption of negative forms of cholesterol in the
liver. Multiple studies have shown the antibacterial capacities of
sesame oil. These studies support the use of oil pulling in the
prevention of dental cavities and gingivitis.

A 2007 study (PDF) looking into the effect of oil pulling (with
sunflower oil) on plaque and gingivitis on oral soft and hard tissues.
Results found that after 45 days of oil pulling, subjects showed a
statistically significant reduction in gingivitis.

Another study (PDF), conducted in 2008 found a
“remarkable reduction in the total count of bacteria” in the mouth, and
an overall marked reduction in susceptibility dental cavities. The
antibacterial activity of sesame oil was also studied and found to have
an effect on the Streptococcus mutans in the mouth. In fact, these
studies showed an overall reduction of bacteria from 10 to 33.4% in
participants, and after 40 days of oil-pulling, participants were found
to show 20% in average reduction in oral bacteria. Moreover, half of all
participants in this case study showed a drastic reduction in
susceptibility to dental caries.
