Oil Pulling Therapy
RESULTS AND DISCUSSION based on the Oil Pulling Clinical Study
The effect of oil-pulling on the reduction of total count of bacteria The results of our study have shown the antibacterial effect of sesame oil on total bacteria. The reduction of total count of bacteria ranged from 10 to 33.4%. The average reduction of total count of bacteria was 20% after 40 days of oil-pulling (Table 1). Therefore, the sesame oil is found to be effective in reducing bacterial growth and adhesion. Toxins and bacteria from the body might be expelled through the tongue and trapped in the oil and removed from the body.
Effect of oil pulling on the susceptibility of a host to dental caries There is a remarkable reduction in the susceptibility of a host to dental caries. 50% of the case study persons were converted from marked dental caries susceptibility to slight dental caries susceptibility. 50% of the case study persons were converted from marked dental caries susceptibility to moderate dental caries susceptibility
Note that the clinical study was done for a period of 40 days. So I believe we have to do Oil Pulling every day as part of normal morning routine to remove and prevent dental caries/oral bacteria, which are also known to cause other diseases such as hardening of arteries.
I am currently on Day 3 of Oil Pulling Therapy (swishing oil in the mouth for 20 minutes then spitting it). Have been encouraging Nanay to do the same, but she has been so busy as Tatay is still in the Philippines. This morning, as soon as Zarah woke up, I asked her to swish 1 tablespoon of water instead of oil for about 5 minutes, to train her. Will gradually increase her time by 1 minute each day, until she can keep the water for 20 minutes. Then will switch to coconut oil — and ask her to swish 1 tbsp of coconut oil in her mouth for 5 minutes- gradually increasing to 20 minutes.
After every swishing
I gargle with sea salt & warm water and then brush my teeth & splint with baking soda. This is my new routine every morning.
My healing reactions:
From Day 1, it seems the oil has been pulling mucus from my throat and lungs and I have been coughing without fever. The mucus is clear (not yellowish).
I hope Nanay & Zarah would start doing this too, as this therapy can remove remaining oral bacteria from their throat and mouth.
At night before going to bed
After brushing my teeth with baking soda and soaking my splint, I also massage my gums and insides of the mouth with coconut oil. It relieves the pain in my gums caused by the dental procedures last week. This massage is called intra oral release.
Nanay has been diligent now in brushing her teeth, dentures and splint after every meal (knowing that it cost me lots of money). But she still not doing the intra oral release nor the oil pulling therapy. Both of us are currently on a 12-day Colon Cleansing Program designed by Dr. Bitanga-Valeros. During this period, Nanay will not do her coffee enema. The Oil Pulling Therapy is a great compliment to the Colon Cleansing Program.
