ever since I can remember I have had bad teeth. the dentist would love me as a patient because he always had something to poke holes into 😏. he was certainly my Voldemort in my growing years. thankfully by the time I got to college I found the best dentist ever whom I completely and deeply love – but the issue of my ‘bad’ teeth never went away. there was no real specific reason – it wasn’t like my food or teeth cleaning habits were bad – I was told it was just the way it was.
till I discovered oil pulling – its been about 6 years now since I started. at that time I was particularly committed to doing it everyday and initially I had a lot of cleansing that came up with it – a hilarious story for another day – the moot point however is this – I haven’t had any dental work since. WHICH IS INSANELY AMAZING. of course i would expect regular deterioration to happen and I am sure that will but not in line with my own history and experience of past.
so to everyone and anyone who might have dental issues and are willing to try a non invasive, supportive medium of healing – I would say start OIL PULLING tomorrow. of course do your reading and research but it works. just to further accentuate this let me give u another example. I was in Bali (had been living there for a year) and just about 10 days before I was heading back home for the holidays – I developed a serious tooth/gum infection. I was so paranoid because I couldn’t just walk into a dentist (insane fear of them since childhood) and I couldn’t live with the pain either. Anyways I jumped into oil pulling even more extensively and got deeper into it, I worked with some supportive clay based remedies as well and while the first 2 days were insanely painful – lo and behold by day 4 it was all gone. I couldn’t believe it myself. it was such a miracle. I got back home and went to my dentist thinking there must be something left over for her to clean but she gave me a clean chit and sent me home without any treatment.
I have read that there are an incredible number of nerve endings which end up in our mouth through our teeth, tongue palette etc (please do verify this for yourself too). with oil pulling it is literally like a deep cleansing for the entire internal system. It pulls out all the goop inside and clears out the inner channels of your body especially in relation to the respiratory, lymphatic systems.
the way to do it is to take cold pressed sesame (ideally) or coconut oil and you go upto a max of 1 tablespoon for 20 minutes and swish this around your mouth first thing in the morning after you wake up. you then use a tongue cleanser and then brush your teeth as normal.
the first time I tried it I barely got more than a few drops in for a few seconds. It felt ugh! but then as I persisted within a short period of time I was a rocking oil pulling queen.
I hope this helps some of you and if it does sort out your dental/teeth issues – do check back in and comment.
