The benefits of oil pulling: it’s an ancient Ayurvedic practice that dates back 5,000 years, and for good reason. It’s refreshing, it addresses different parts of the mouth, and Dr. Sands, a celebrity dentist, is a fan.
In Ayurveda, oil pulling is thought to have a detoxifying effect, literally pulling oil-soluble toxins out of the body through the delicate blood vessels in your mouth’s soft tissues. While this theory hasn’t undergone rigorous testing, this study does acknowledge that our mouths harbor billions of organisms, and that “some of these contribute to the development or progression of systemic diseases.” And since oil pulling has zero negative side effects, we can’t think of a reason not to incorporate this meditative, hygienic tool. Here’s the full tutorial for newbies.
