Hey guys, Axe here. Today, I'm going toshow you how to do oil pulling, and this is something that's not just a hot, trendy thingright now. This has been done and had major benefitsfor thousands of years. It's used today in India and Asia all the time for your oralhealth. You may be wondering, well what exactly is oil pullingé Oil pulling is taking oil, typically sesameoil, olive oil, or coconut oil, and swishing it back and forth between your teeth. Thehealth benefits are it can actually help heal and cure tooth decay.
It's been shown to help heal bleeding gums.It's been shown to naturally whiten your teeth, strengthen your jaw muscles, and overall cleanseyour mouth and even support weight loss, some people claim. The truth is this, I was talking to a reallywell known dentist recently and he was telling me that, and this is true from all the medicalresearch, that the health of your mouth, the bacteria in your mouth, correlates with thehealth of the rest of your body. So by healing your mouth and improving youroral health you can actually improve the health of your entire body. In fact, periodontaldisease, or gingivitis or bad bacteria buildup
within your mouth, is an indicator that youare at higher risk of heart disease. Again, it's very, very important that you'recleansing not just your body but your oral cavity in your mouth on a regular basis. Thisis also a great thing to do to naturally freshen up your breath and give you a glowing smile. So here is how you're going to do oil pulling.You're basically going to take two teaspoons of, I like coconut oil. Now, I like coconutoil over other oils because it has antifungal and antimicrobial properties so it will killoff any of that bad bacteria that's in your mouth and also support the growth of goodbacteria.
So you're going to do two teaspoons in yourmouth. You're going to swish it inbetween your teeth. Don't overdo it. You'll make yourmouth sore. Lightly swish it inbetween your teeth for about 10 to 20 minutes. I'm notgoing to do that here on this tutorial, I'm going to do it for about 10 to 20 seconds, but typicallyyou want to do it 10 to 20 minutes. That may seem like a long time but if youdo it while you're in the shower, that's a great time to do it. That'll be five minutesalone. Even if you can do just that five minutes, it is still greatly beneficial. So do it while you're in the shower, do itwhile you're reading at night, you can do
it while you're just kind of getting readyin the morning. But doing oil pulling as I said, doesn't haveto be complicated, about 10 to 20 minutes. Afterwards, you're going to spit out the oilin a cup or in the trashcan and then after that you're going to rinse your mouth outwith water and then, finally, you're going to brush your teeth as normal. So I'm goingto demonstrate here how this would work. And again, you're going to first take here,I'm going to get a big loaded tablespoon or teaspoon here of coconut oil and I'm goingto put it in my mouth, kind of chew on it for a minute and then swish it. I'm goingto do it for about 20 seconds so I guess I'll
have to be quiet here. You can see me chewinghere. It'll melt within about 15 seconds. Now, I'm going to start to swish. Do that for 10 to 20 minutes, spit it out,and then the next thing you're going to do is get some water and swish this inbetweenyour teeth. Finally, you'll brush your teeth as normal. and I guarantee, do this even if it's justfive minutes, ideally 10 to 20, but your mouth will feel so clean. You're killing bad bacteria,you're whitening your teeth, you're getting fresher breath.
