This is why I read more than one book on the subject to get different views and to decide for myself what would work the best for me.
This book is good if you are looking for the reasons why oil pulling works rather than just how to do it.
Does oil pulling work? I have been doing it for two weeks with a good quality oil and have already seen some major results in muscle and digestive relaxation as well as more energy during the day. I am beginning to feel much less sensitivity in my gums and teeth. But I think two weeks is too little of time to make a firm decision so I will keep at it a while longer. If nothing else, my jaw muscles are becoming much stronger from the daily swishing! May 07, Paul rated it it was amazing. Here is a safe and very easy way to vastly improve your health without special pills or diets.
All it requires is swishing a spoonful of vegetable oil around your mouth for at least 15 minutes at a time.
Many scientific studies have chronicled a link between chronic illness and the health of our mouths the book references over such studies. Think about it; our mouths are constantly warm and moist, like a tropical rain forest, which is a great breeding ground for germs. They are also open to Here is a safe and very easy way to vastly improve your health without special pills or diets. They are also open to the outside, so it is very easy for bacteria to enter our mouths and take up residence. From there, the bacteria can enter the bloodstream and travel to any part of the body. There it can cause anything from arthritis to constipation to eczema to hypertension to sinusitis all of which have been reported as responding to oil pulling.
What do you do? Take a tablespoon of nearly any vegetable oil the author recommends coconut oil and swish it around your mouth for several minutes, then spit it out. That's all. Teeth are very porous, full of tiny tubules where the bacteria can hide. Brushing, flossing or mouthwash will not clean out those tubules; oil pulling will. This is not a cure for whatever ails you. Oil pulling simply removes the infection from your mouth so that your body's natural healing properties can do their job. This is totally safe for children and pregnant women, as the only ingredient is vegetable oil.
It can also be done several times a day, if necessary. If you experience side effects, like coughing up mucus, or the sudden onset of what feels like the flu, don't worry about it; it's your body cleaning itself out. Also, don't worry if you don't see any immediate improvement in your health; some people simply heal faster than others. Also, after you are done swishing, do not swallow; spit it out.
You don't want to remove the bacteria from your mouth, just to deposit it in your stomach. Improving your health is not supposed to be this easy. This book is very easy to read for anyone, and is very highly recommended. Oct 28, Jen rated it really liked it Shelves: health-and-nutrition. A friend told me about oil pulling about 5 months ago and I didn't pay much attention. So when I saw this book I knew I was missing out on something.
I know Bruce Fife and have enjoyed a few of his other books. I believe he has a pretty solid foundation in nutrition. I skimmed over a chunk of this book regarding specific health conditions mostly , but the main parts I did read were fascinating e. The history behind oil pulling offers up some good reasons to give it a go and the link between other density theories also is quite compelling. While the process itself has no research to back up any health claims, there are logical conclusions that can be drawn by just the basic facts known about the mouth and bacteria.
With all that said, I have added oil pulling to my health regime, it is almost too easy not to! Jun 18, Zorina B rated it it was amazing.

I started Oil Pulling and have done it for about 1 week. I noticed so far that my teeth are whiter and my breath is much fresher. I add a drop of clove or wintergreen essential oil while I am pulling. Also, I noticed that it is easier to floss my teeth.
The floss glides between my teeth now. I am hoping to see a inprovement in my digestive system and other health issues. The books says it could take at least 45 days.

Thus is the third book I have read by Bruce Fife.
It is an easy read filled with a lot of good information. I have oil pulled off and on only because when I start oil pulling it never fails that my kids want to ask me questions that must be answered. I really believe that this is a tool to use for over all good health. It is natural and doesn't conflict with medications. Jump to. Sections of this page. Accessibility Help.
