Ever since starting the practice of Coconut Pulling and recommending it to our readers, we have had lots of mail confirming the effectiveness of this detox cleanse not for only for teeth health but for overall health too.
The feedback confirms using coconut pulling is great for relieving many sources of tooth pain and/or postponing an emergency visit to the dentist.
More folks report that over time, it is definitely countering the tooth decay and many different complications associated with many health issues and chronic diseases.
At first, this idea may sound a bit…yucky, and in fact the very first moment of putting the oil in your mouth does feel, weird.
But as soon as you start swishing it around in your mouth, it has a very gentle massage feeling.
Studies are showing that it is effectively reducing the level of bacteria colonies that are hosted in the mouth. For the Lyme-suffering community, this may be a very cheap and simple detox principle to incorporate considering the Lyme Spirochete is prone to taking up residence in the gums and soft tissue of the mouth.

- Whitens teeth

“Oil pulling is a powerful detoxifying Ayurvedic technique that has recently become very popular as a CAM remedy for many different health ailments. Using this method, surgery or medication could be prevented for a number of chronic illnesses. The oil therapy is preventative as well as curative. The exciting aspect of this healing method is its simplicity.
Ayurveda advises oil gargling to purify the entire system; as it holds that each section of the tongue is connected to different organ such as to the kidneys, lungs, liver, heart, small intestines, stomach, colon, and spine, similarly to reflexology and TCM.”
How-To on Coconut Oil Pulling:
- Make sure to oil pull first thing in the morning right after you get out of bed before you brush your teeth or drink anything.
- Gently swish 1 – 2 tablespoons of coconut oil in your mouth and between your teeth for 10-20 minutes making sure that you don’t swallow any of the oil.
- Spit out the oil in the trash (not the sink or toilet so it doesn’t clog up the plumbing) and immediately rinse your mouth out with warm water (add sea salt to the water for added antimicrobial properties).
- Finally, brush your teeth as normal.
- It’s as easy as that!
Most recommendations say to do oil pulling 3-4x per week with coconut oil to help detox your body and you can add your favorite essential oils to the mixture.
