The “Oil Pull”
This is a traditional Russian remedy that’s very powerful for pulling toxins out of your system. You need organic cold-pressed sunflower oil – and you do it on an empty stomach (early morning or before meals).
How To: Put 1 tbsp of the oil in your mouth and slowly swish it around from side to side, through the teeth, etc. Continue for as long as you can (15-20 minutes is ideal). Then spit out the oil and thoroughly rinse your mouth and spit again. If the oil is yellow, you haven’t done it long enough; the oil will be white and watery when you’re done.
The swishing motion of the oil stimulates production of enzymes. The enzymes draw toxins out of your blood and your saliva. (It’s possible that any oil would work – sesame, coconut… Sunflower is used in Russia because it’s available locally, I imagine.)
Don’t swallow any of the oil – it’s full of toxic matter. After you’ve finished swishing, keep rinsing with water, using your index finger to rub the teeth and gums. Clean the sink after, to get rid of the toxic microbes etc.
Dr F. Karach has used the oil pull for acute and chronic diseases, including migraines, bronchitis, diseased teeth, arterial thrombosis, blood disorders (even leukemia), arthritis, neurological issues, paralysis, eczema, gastroenteritis, peritonitis, heart disease, kidney disease, meningitis, hormonal disorders.
Dr Karach says the oil pulling improves metabolism & overall health. Loose teeth, bleeding gums, discoloured teeth – they all improve.
Best done in early morning before breakfast. I combine it with a gentle workout on the cellerciser/rebounder – 12-15 minutes of lymph bouncing, arm presses, etc., while you keep swishing the oil. Perfect multi-tasking!
To speed healing (or in acute cases) you can do it 3 times a day – before meals.
Be patient with this remedy – with chronic conditions it may take a while before you notice a difference. But it’s not going to harm you, so why not give it a try for 6 months and see how you feel!
