Oil pulling health benefits and why a holistic approach is best!

Oil pulling is the ancient tradition of swishing oil around your mouth to draw out the bad toxins in your mouth. But what are the benefits and why should you use Chi White?

Oil pulling has been around for years. It’s an ancient Ayurvedic technique that involves swishing oil in your mouth to help improve your oral & overall health.  By swishing the oil around your mouth, it contains lauric acid which, when swished around your mouth, the oral bacteria is attracted to this and the microbes are picked up, similar to being drawn to a magnet! Bacteria hiding under crevices in the gums and in pores and tubules within the teeth are sucked out of their hiding places and held firmly in the solution.

The longer you push and pull the oil through your mouth, the more microbes are pulled free. The oil needs to be swished around long enough for it to turn a milky white, which indicates that the bacteria has been "pulled" off. After roughly 20 minutes the solution is filled with bacteria, viruses and other organisms; at this point, the person spits out the oil and rinses thoroughly with water and teeth can be brushed. Lauric acid is very well known for its antimicrobial actions; it inhibits Strep mutans that are the primary bacteria that cause tooth decay. With that in mind, it should be no surprise that recent studies have shown the benefit of coconut oil in the prevention of tooth decay.

The primary cause of tooth decay is bacteria, therefore using an all natural and chemical free treatment which promotes getting rid of this bad bacteria can only be beneficial!
