Oil pulling! You’ve heard of it, and perhaps you’ve tried it and seen some wonderful results in the health of your teeth and gums! However, did you know that the amazing benefits of this ancient practice go far beyond just oral health? With other possible benefits including reducing headaches, clearer skin, clearing hormone imbalances, and detoxifying the body, daily oil pulling with raw organic virgin coconut oil can be incredible for your overall health and is definitely something to try out.
The health of the mouth is inextricably linked to the health of the body as a whole. Bacteria in the mouth and gums can lead to other, more serious, health problems, including stroke, heart disease, and diabetes. It is very important to take good care of your teeth and gums to ensure bacterial overgrowth and plaque do not occur! Oil pulling cleanses your mouth by dramatically reducing the amount of bacteria in the teeth and gums, allowing your overall health to benefit in turn.
As oil pulling detoxifies the mouth (and by extension, the body!), it could help with increased energy. The body won’t need to expend as much energy clearing toxins. By cleansing harmful bacteria and fungal overgrowth at the source, you can potentially stop these toxins from travelling through the body and affecting cells and organs – including the skin! Removing these toxins could also help to prevent headaches.
So there you have it! Just one of the many benefits of coconut oil. If you’re after a natural way to look and feel great, inside and out, consider oil pulling. We love it, and we think you will too!
