Hangover Cure: Oil Pulling

As with hiccups, nearly everyone has a favorite hangover cure. Throughout history, whole cultures have come up with some bizarre and creative hangover remedies. Like how in the name of all things mighty does one even come up with something so ridiculous? See for yourself…

Ancient Greece: Sheep lungs and owl eggs. Let me just go grab them from my pantry…

Ancient Rome: Two fried canaries. Like, pet Canaries?

Medieval England: A paste of bitter almonds and fried eels. ????

Germany: Sour herring. Okay, somewhat normal…

Haiti: Stick 13 pins into the cork of the bottle you drank from. Oh, I get it, it’s witchcraft…

Ireland: Bury the hangover sufferer up to his neck in a sandy riverbank… and leave them to die?

Japan: Pickled plums. interesting, I may try that

Mongolia: Pickled sheep eyes in tomato juice. blech

Poland: Pickled beet juice. YUMMY!

Puerto Rico: Lemon slices, rubbed under the armpits, before drinking. If it doesn’t work at least you’ll be, So fresh and so clean, clean

Romania: Tripe (cow intestines). That’s just stupid

United States (Old West): Rabbit poop. Oh goody! Chocolate!

… 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!
