I tried oil pulling a couple of years ago....that was back when I thought I had acid reflux. It didn't go over so well with me then, but now that I have my candida under control, I decided to do it again.
I know some of you are wondering....WHAT THE HECK IS OIL PULLING? Well, Oil Pulling is the age-old art of putting oil in your mouth to draw out the toxins in the body. When you draw out the toxins, it helps you to heal your candida.
I don't know if it is drawing toxins out of my body but my teeth feel so much cleaner and never get that build up feeling. My gums even feel so much better than they have been.
I will tell you how to oil pull at the end of this post.
I Started Oil Pulling on June 6, 2010. I only use maybe a half of a tablespoon full of oil. I use cold pressed organic olive oil. You can use other oils but they really should be organic and cold pressed.
Now, I am not sure of all the health benefits of oil pulling but here are some of them....and I am not sure I believe it can do all it is touted to do...but ..... I do think it helps to clean the mouth and keep candida from growing.
1. Strengthens Teeth/gums
2. Prevents tooth decay
3. Prevents Decreases/Malodor
4. Repairs loose teeth
5. REVERSES Gingivitis

How To Oil Pull
The first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, take about a tablespoon of oil into your mouth and swish back and forth, side to side for 15-20 minutes (Try not to swallow the oil). Rinse your mouth and brush your teeth. Thats It!!!
If any of you do this....Please let me know if it has helped you or not.
I really enjoy the clean feeling that my teeth have.
Update... Sometimes I Use Coconut Oil instead of Olive Oil
