Oil pulling is much more than an oral cleansing method. Originating in the ancient healing systems of Ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine, where it is well known that disease begins in the mouth, this simple health practice triggers detoxification and healing throughout the entire body. The mouth and tongue are home to bacteria, fungus, and many toxins from the rest of the body. Oil pulling not only cleanses the mouth and tongue, preventing harmful bacteria and toxins from entering the bloodstream, it also triggers enzyme production in the digestive tract, which in turn activates cleansing processes throughout the entire body. Practiced daily, oil pulling leads to better dental and gum health, a stronger immune system, detoxification of major organs including the intestines, lungs, and liver, and healing from many conditions caused by internal toxins and chronic inflammation.

Before trying the practice of oil pulling, I read two different books on the subject. This is one of them.
SUMMARY: "In this practical guide, Birgit Frohn details the simple process of oil pulling, including when to do it, how long to swish the oil in your mouth, and other oral care techniques that complement it, such as tongue scraping. She explains the specific health benefits of 10 different cold-pressed oils that can be used in oil pulling, from traditional sesame oil to vitamin-packed pumpkin seed oil to highly popular coconut oil, allowing you to choose the best oil for your needs. She also reveals the vast number of ailments that can be healed and prevented by regular oil pulling practice...Frohn also explores additional detox techniques that enhance the benefits of oil pulling and concludes with a step-by-step 7-day detox plan for those who want to maximize the effects of oil pulling and accelerate their return to better health."

REVIEW: This book looks at oil pulling from the traditional Ayurvedic view. It talks about the origins of oil pulling and works from the belief that oil pulling actually pulls toxins from your body into your mouth as well as triggering digestive enzymes that boost the immune system. Frohn suggests as little as 5 minutes a day up to three times a day will make a major change in your health. Frohn encourages using the best quality virgin cold-pressed oils available and includes a list of the best oils to use.

THE NOT AS GOOD: If you are looking for science to back up this natural health method, you will not find it here. Plus, the final third of the book is taken up with other ways to boost your immune system including healthy eating and other natural detoxification techniques. I found this part of the book to be incongruous to the oil pulling information and often the author contradicted her own advice. This part of the book felt like a filler thrown in to make the book a little bit longer. The book would have been much stronger without it.

CONCLUSION: Birgit Frohn has her own method of how to complete oil pulling that differs a bit from others. This is why I read more than one book on the subject to get different views and to decide for myself what would work the best for me. This book is good if you are looking for how to do oil pulling rather than the reasons why oil pulling works. I recommend it for the oil pulling information only which includes when to pull, how to pull and what to expect. Does oil pulling work? I have been doing it for two weeks with a good quality oil and have already seen some major results in muscle and digestive relaxation as well as more energy during the day. I am beginning to feel much less sensitivity in my gums and teeth. But I think two weeks is too little of time to make a firm decision so I will keep at it a while longer. If nothing else, my jaw muscles are becoming much stronger from the daily swishing!

NOTE: I received a free ARC copy of this book from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. My reviews are always 100% honest based on preset criteria.
