Many people don’t realise that their mouths serve an important role in their bodies’ waste removal system and overall detoxification.

Traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine are based on the concept that the health of your mouth mirrors your total body health, and your overall health is reflected in your oral health. Even a traditional heart specialist may refer a patient to a dentist for care, so it’s not an unreasonable concept.

Your body’s waste removal is especially active at night when your saliva production drops during sleep. In fact, that slimy, coated feeling you sometimes notice when you wake up is one sign that it’s doing its job!

First thing in the morning is the prime time to clean your mouth of your body’s wastes. And one of the most effective ways of doing it is through oil pulling; an ancient practice of swishing oil in your mouth to remove wastes, reduce normal plaque accumulation, freshen breath, and support the health of your gums and mouth. Dr Mercola does it daily and he likes to add his Organic Peppermint Essential Oil for a refreshing, exhilarating taste.

Dr Mercola prefers Certified Organic Coconut Oil for oil pulling for several reasons:

  • It supports a beneficial balance of healthy mouth flora
  • Its cleansing action intensifies when it breaks down into its fatty acid building blocks, which begins immediately in your mouth
  • It’s made up of easily digested medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs) that readily cross cell membranes and are used by your liver for energy rather than stored as fat
  • Contains three valuable medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs): caprylic, capric, and lauric fatty acids (an important protectant fatty acid found in mother’s milk)
  • Does not produce an insulin spike in your bloodstream
  • It tastes better and feels less greasy in your mouth

Coconut oil by itself can be chunky when temperatures fall below 76 degrees – not always a pleasant experience when placed directly in your mouth! For Mercolas Certified Organic Coconut Oil Oral Rinse, they have combined Certified Organic Coconut Oil with its valuable component, MCT oil, to create the perfect consistency oil for pulling.

Mercola recommends combining with their Refreshing Mint Toothpaste with Tulsi and Certified Organic Coconut Oil Oral Rinse to support good oral health.

Whether you use Mercola’s Certified Organic Coconut Oil Oral Rinse for “pulling” for a comprehensive mouth cleansing or for just a quick mouth freshener when you’re short on time, it deserves a key spot in your overall oral health program

Description

While oils such as sesame and sunflower have been used traditionally for oil pulling, there are several reasons why Dr Mercola prefer using Organic Coconut oil:

  • It supports a beneficial balance of healthy mouth flora
  • Its cleansing action intensifies when it breaks down into its fatty acid building blocks, which begins immediately in your mouth
  • It isn’t high in omega-6 fatty acids like the other oils, which means it won’t negatively affect the vital omega 6:3 balance that optimises your health
  • It tastes better and feels less greasy in your mouth
  • It is made up of easily digested medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs) that readily cross cell membranes
  • Its fats are used by your liver for energy rather than stored as fat
  • Contains three valuable medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs): caprylic, capric, and lauric fatty acids
  • Half of the fat is lauric acid, an important protective fatty acid found in mother’s milk
  • Does not produce an insulin spike in your bloodstream

While coconut oil is widely known for its skin and personal care benefits, you may not be aware of all of its internal potential benefits. One of the healthiest fats around, organic coconut oil helps support your:

  • Heart health
  • Proper thyroid function
  • Healthy brain function
  • Immune health
  • Healthy, strong metabolism for weight management
  • Youthful-looking skin from the inside out!

How Oil Pulling Works

When you pull oil – the swishing and chewing of an oil, pushing it through and around your teeth and gums, you help dislodge the debris and wastes that build up in your mouth and gum pockets. While at-home water irrigation systems are an option to deep clean teeth and gums, some holistic experts believe oil pulling may work even better.

Unlike water irrigation or brushing, which both typically last a couple of minutes at best, pulling oil for 15 to 20 minutes allows the oil to spread through your teeth and into your gum spaces and pockets. The magic is in the time the oil remains in your mouth. As you swish and “pull” the oil throughout your mouth for this period of time, it works its way deep down into any spaces. It soaks up or “pulls” wastes from around your teeth, gums, and oral cavity.

When wastes remain on your teeth, plaque, a clear, sticky film can combine with saliva and form hard deposits. These deposits, known as tartar or calculus, aren’t removed with everyday brushing. The regular removal of tartar is crucial for your oral and total body health.

In addition to waste removal, here’s what else oil pulling can potentially do for you:

  • Reduce normal plaque accumulation in your mouth
  • Support the health of your gums
  • Purify and freshen your breath as effectively as mouthwash
  • Support your oral health through its mechanical cleansing action

Most importantly, be careful not to swallow the oil. Be sure to spit out the waste-soaked oil when you’re finished!
