Let’s face it, we are exposed to an alarming amount of toxins on a daily basis.
From the BPA that lines your canned goods to the pesticides liberally sprayed on anything alive these days, our bodies are constantly absorbing an outrageous amount of chemicals.
Even though you may try to live as pure a life as possible, sneaky sources of dangerous metals are everywhere, even in the so-called “all natural” products that fool consumers into believing these ingredients are safe.
Over time, high concentrations of metals build up in our systems and can lead to a wide variety of conditions, including, but not limited to:
- Dry skin
- Joint or muscle aches
- Loss of appetite
- Blood pressure issues
- Vitamin and mineral deficiencies
This trick I’m about to share with you to detox your body involves swishing oil around the mouth and has been used for thousands of years as an Indian folk remedy.
It is the Oil Pulling method:
Modern naturopathic practitioners are joining with ancient Ayurvedic health practitioners in an understanding of just how powerful a detoxification and healing tool oil pulling really is.
Although coconut oil is not the only oil that can be used to oil pull (others include sesame, sunflower and olive), I'm a big fan of its long list of health-promoting properties (for both oil pulling and/or coconut oil ingestion).
This is what Dr. Bruce Fife, naturopath doctor, nutritionist, and master detoxer has to say about oil pulling –
“Oil pulling is one of the most remarkable methods of detoxification and healing I have ever experienced… It helped me overcome a chronic skin problem that [I was previously] unable to cure.”
I have personally noticed that my teeth feel much stronger, cleaner, and my breath definitely feels fresher (especially in the morning!)
