OIL PULLING. There is a trend
that promotes swishing coconut, seasame or olive oil in your mouth to
"pull" harmful bacteria from your mouth,teeth and gums. It is an ancient
remedy for oral health and detoxification. It is done by taking a
teaspoon of desired oil and swishing around for 15 minutes a day to
detoxify your mouth. It is based on the simple premise that bacteria get
stuck to the oil and is removed. There is no harm done by doing this
but it requires one to do it for 15 -20 minutes a day most people dont
have that time. Also it may extract "good" bacteria while it is
detoxifying.Products such as dirty mouth
toothpowder is a antimicrobrial and anti inflammatory agent which is
suggested to fight gingivitis or gum disease.
