Oil Pulling is simply taking a tablespoon of oil and swishing it gently around your mouth for 20 minutes.
This has been practiced in the Ayurvedic tradition for thousands of years, and was also an old Russian Folk remedy. It was studied by a Ukranian doctor, and very little of it can be found written in English, but we have found many documents in other languages. It's new to the US and Curezone is the most active group of people doing this on the internet. The forum started out with less than 20 people and it is well over 100 people now.
The idea behind the therapy is the removal of blood toxins and bacteria. The reason you swish oil for 20 minutes is that all the blood runs through the vein under your tongue every 20 minutes. The theory is that the oil pulls toxins via this vein, and then you simply spit them out. Also it removes just formed bacteria from your mouth. This is the reason that many people are experiencing amazing dental visits, as gum health appears to be drastically improved. It also whitens your teeth, almost from the first time you do it.

I know it seems a bit strange and wacky, and we giggle about it all the time, but darn if it doesn't work, and work well.
