I was at the gym and an interesting article popped up on the welcome screen in the hallway. It asked simply “Are You Oil Pulling Yet?” When I got home I went to the website to get a little more detail on this peculiar practice. Basically, you take a spoonful of oil, like organic olive or coconut, swish it around in your mouth for about 5 to 15 minutes, and then spit it out in the garbage. Supposedly this practice draws out all the toxins in your mouth, which is a gateway for sickness and disease. People have claimed being healed of migraines, lethargy, and many other ailments.
I would try it now – only I don’t have 15 minutes to sit around swishing oil. But I promise to post a follow-up on twitter.
