There has been a lot of buzz about a new health trend that everyone, including celebrities and popular talk shows, is talking about. This trend is called oil pulling which has been used for thousands of years. Before new methods of dental hygiene and trendy products, oil pulling helped prevent tooth decay in ancient times and is making a comeback.
In our recent times, our diets have been labeled with refined sugars and flours, causing rampant tooth decay. Up until recently, the only option was to have decayed teeth pulled. This was not as big of an issue for our ancestors who had much healthier and simplistic foods than we have today. Our ancestors combatted tooth decay by the use of the natural Ayurvedic treatment of oil pulling which successfully removes mouth toxins.
The roots of old oil pulling are hard to trace, however oil pulling has been reintroduced to our modern era by the Ukranian physician, Doctor F. Karach, in 1992.
Dr. Karach practiced oil pulling with great success. According to him, it cured his painful arthritis which caused him to be bedridden. He also claims that his blood disorder of fifteen years was cured by the ayurvedic treatment. Dr. Karach felt so strongly about the oil gargling method that he said it could cure illnesses ranging from hormonal disorders, digestive problems, and even heart disease.
So far there has not been many studies about the effects of oil pulling. Many oil pulling patrons prefer the use of organic coconut oil despite the fact that sesame and sunflower oils appear to be the most useful.
