… Let’s keep things animal free but just as bizarre with OIL PULLING…
In the morning, after a long night, on an empty stomach you take one tablespoon of sesame or sunflower oil in the mouth but do not swallow it. Move Oil Slowly in the mouth as rinsing or swishing and pull through the teeth’ for fifteen to twenty minutes. This process makes oil thoroughly mix with saliva. Swishing activates the enzymes and the enzymes draw toxins out of the blood. The oil must not be swallowed, for it has become toxic. As the process continues, the oil gets thinner and white. If the oil is still yellow, it has not been pulled long enough. After 20 minutes spit out the oil, the mouth must be washed thoroughly. Just use normal tap water and good ol’ finger tools to clean.
The oil pulling /swishing is done best before breakfast. To accelerate the healing process, it can be repeated three times a day, but always before meals on an empty stomach. Try it!
