As we sleep, fat soluble toxins are mobilized into the blood stream. One way to assist the body in removing these toxins is by oil pulling. Any of the following oils may be alternated with coconut oil. Purchase an organic, healthy oil such as coconut oil, olive oil, almond oil, walnut oil, grape seed oil, macadamia nut oil or sunflower seed oil.
First thing upon rising before brushing your teeth or drinking liquids, put approximately 1 tablespoon of the healthy oil in your mouth and swish for about 15 minutes. Then spit the oil out in the trash or down the garbage disposal while holding your breath so you do not inhale the toxins coming out of your spit. Fat soluble toxins that accumulated in your mouth during the night will bind to the healthy oil that you spit out.
This oil pulling, “swish and spit”, protocol also works well as a mild detoxification therapy immediately after or during the last 5 minutes of a heated sauna or immediately after a rigorous exercise routine before the body has fully cooled down.
