Oil Pulling: A Healing Therapy For Dozens of Diseases
Oil pulling is an age old Ayurveda process which works on the root cause of symptoms and helps the body in its healing process, hence takes significant amount of time in giving you the desired results. The cost is the price of a daily spoonful of coconut oil–cheaper than even a vitamin tablet. Yet it is one of the most powerful forms of therapeutic techniques available.
Oil pulling or oil swishing involves swishing oil in the mouth Ayurvedic literature describes oilpulling as capable of both improving oral health and treating serious and systemic diseases such as diabetes mellitus or asthma. According to Dr. F. Karach, M.D, oilpulling is very simple, completely harmless, and inexpensive therapy which totally heals head-aches, bronchitis, tooth pain, thrombosis, eczema, ulcers and diseases of stomach, intestines, heart, blood, kidney, liver, lungs and women’s diseases. It heals diseases of nerves, paralysis, and encephalitis. It prevents the growth of malignant tumors, cuts and heals them. Chronic sleeplessness is cured.
The oil is “worked” in the mouth by pushing, pulling, and drawing it through the teeth for a period of 15 to 20 minutes. It is done one to three times a day on an empty stomach. The best time is in the morning before eating breakfast, but can be done before any meal. The used oil is discarded and the mouth rinsed out with water. The oil is never swallowed because it is loaded with bacteria, toxins, pus, and mucous.
Oil pulling works the same way as cleaning soaps. Soaps are basically fats that attract germs in order to clean. Oil pulling attracts germs and bacteria to ‘pull’ them out of your mouth. It cleans your gum line without damaging your gums. It has been known to cure problems with bad breath, and helps with gum inflammation. It can also help prevent and reverse tooth disease.
Scientific validations of the Ayurveda dental health practices could justify their incorporation into modern dental care. Publicity of these techniques using appropriate media would benefit the general population by giving more confidence in the ancient practices, thus preventing tooth decay and loss.
Oil pulling therapy can be done using oils like sunflower oil or sesame oil. The sesame plant (Sesamum indicum) of the Pedaliaceae family has been considered a gift of nature to mankind for its nutritional qualities and desirable health effects. Sesame oil is considered to be the queen of oil seed crops because of its beneficiary effects. However, coconut oil is the most pleasant inside the mouth and many suggest the most effective.
(NaturalNews) Recently someone in my community asked how to get rid of pesky critters. A neighbor who own a garden center said that they use Diatomaceous Earth. Well – that seemed to me to be a golden opportunity to reveal my little secret to the world – that I have been eating Diatomaceous Earth for about a year now.
D.E. has many beneficial effects, but it is the anti-aging effect that I have seen most pronounced as a change in myself. Rather remarkably, since I have been eating D.E., I have stopped needing to bleach myhair. It has gone from a mousy mostly grey to a luscious blond/brown (my pre-65 year old haircolor). I am really happy about this change – as it is saving me tons of money ($300 a pop for tin-foil bleaching). Even my hairdresser is surprised at the change, and keeps telling me how nice the color of my hair is. However, the good news for my hair dresser is that my hair is now growing wildly faster, and so I am able to keep her happy by needing more frequent haircuts.
Diatomaceous Earth is a fossilized deposit of microscopic shells created by one-celled plants called Diatoms. These plants inhabit all the waters of the earth, and serve as the basic food for aquatic life, just as grass is the basic food for land animals. This mineral-based compound contains silicon, magnesium, calcium, sodium, iron and other trace minerals that the body needs to stay healthy. All Diatomaceous Earth is 84% Silicon Dioxide (Silica).
Here is the science behind my peculiar habit of eating this stuff:
Diatomaceous Earth is the hands-down best source of the mineral silica. In 1939, Nobel Prize Doctor Butenant showed the importance of silica for life itself. It may be true that silica is the most important trace element in humanhealth. Silica plays an important role in many body functions. The human body holds approximately seven grams of silica, a quantity far exceeding the figures for other important minerals. Years ago, the silica found in our foodstuffs was adequate for our needs. But with today’s hybrids and depleted soils, only about 1/3 of the silica needed is supplied in our food.?
Diatomaceous Earth looks like a cylinder full of holes–kind of like Rice Chex Cereal. This cylinder has a very strong negative charge while pathogens have a positive charge. As these millions of cylinders move through thestomachand digestive tract, they attract and absorb fungi, protozoa, viruses, endotoxins, pesticides and drug residues, E-Coli, and heavy metals. These are trapped inside the cylinder and passed out of the body. In addition, any larger parasites that happen to be in the stomach or digestive tract are “cut up” and killed by the sharp edges of the diatomaceous earth. All of these activities result in a much healthier body with less sickness.?
The spa that I own, La Casa Day Spa (http://www.Lacasaspa.com) in Manhattan, emphasizes therapies thatdetoxthe body. Last month, we wrote our 50,000th receipt. That’s 50,000 detox treatments we have done in 18 years, a lion’s share of those being colonics. We want allpeopleto continue to have colonics because colonics give a thorough cleansing of thecolon. But we also want people to know how to continue colon cleansing athome. D.E. is the perfect home remedy.
Diatomaceous Earth is?very?hard. On the hardness scale where diamonds are a 9, Diatomaceous Earth is a 7. This hardness is important because as those millions of tiny hard and sharp diatomaceous earth cylinders pass through the small and large intestines, they “scrub” the walls. After only a few months of taking Diatomaceous Earth, the intestine wall is no longer coated with mucus and molds but has become clean. The advantages of this are several:
-regularizes bowel movements (this is the most frequently mentioned benefit about D.E.)
-creates a healthier colon environment (a cleaner colon helps to keep away polyps, cancers,
-gives increasedenergyand less need for sleep (with a cleaner colon, food and nutrients are
better absorbed into thebloodstream)
-reducesinflammationof the intestinal tract (can prevent or clear up diarrhea and, rather
intelligently, also cures the opposite condition of constipation)
-helps to normalize hemorrhoidal tissues
-alleviates lower back pain that is caused by a too-full colon
Over-All Health Benefits:
-helps repair and maintain vital lung tissues and protects them from pollution
-lowers high blood pressure
-lowers high cholesterol
-addresses osteoporosis?& joint problems
-acts as a cough decreasing agent; tones the upper respiratory tract (nose, pharynx, larynx)
and reduces swelling because of its positive action on the lymphatic system
-helps to prevent many unwanted side-effects of menopause?
-helps to prevent kidney stones
-heals infections of the urinary tract; is a natural diuretic which can increase excretion of
urine by 30 percent, thus flushing the water-excreting system and restoring normal
function to these vital organs
-effective with female discharge, abscesses and ulcers in the genital area and cervix, as well
as mastitis (especially for breast feeding mothers).
-acts as a supportive treatment for inflammation of the middle ear (effective in reducing
swelling of the lymph nodes in the throat)
-has anti-inflammatory disinfecting, absorbing and odor binding effects
-normalizes circulation and regulates high blood pressure(hypertension)
-decreases vertigo, headache, tinnitus (buzzing of the ears) and insomnia
-promotes synthesis of elastase inhibitor by the pancreas, thus helping to normalize diabetes
-strengthens blood vessels
-helps to prevent Tuberculosis.
-improves the elasticity of the joints; helps rheumatism
-stimulates metabolism for higher energy levels
One of thebenefitsof silica is that it helps to destroy bad fats. Taken in the morning, it helps to curb appetite throughout the day.
Hair (90 micrograms per gram) needs almost as much silica as bone (100 micrograms per gram). Eating D.E., with its rich supply of silica, should be part of any ongoing hair revitalization program. Silica helps to prevent baldness, stimulates healthier hair growth and assures beautiful shine, luster andstrength.
D.E. serves as nature’s internal cosmetic for skin, nails andteethas well as hair.?Collagen underneath theskinenhances elasticity and beauty. Collagen is largely made up of silica. As we age, tissue degeneration?accelerates because our connective tissue begins to lose the ability to retain moisture. Silica helps to slow down the degenerative/moisture-losing process ofagingconnective tissue.?
Silica also protects our teeth and gums. By hardening the enamel, silica prevents cavities and preserves teeth. Silica also helps to prevent bleeding gums, gum atrophy, and recession.
Finally, silica can help avoid or alleviate Alzheimer’s by preventing the body from absorbing aluminum.

(NaturalNews) There are several approaches for detoxifying yourself from heavy metals and other toxic materials. Enemas, chelating agents, fasting, and sauna are all open to one’s preference. But there is a booster rocket to accelerate any detox method you choose. It’s called niacin, or vitamin B3.
The Need to Detox Regularly
We are immersed in a toxic environment. Of the over 75,000 chemicals produced in North America, 20,000 cannot be naturally eliminated by our bodies. Out of the 75,000 chemicals in our toxic environment, 3000 go into the food supply.
Avoiding what we know to be toxic is a great step toward detoxification. But there are toxins that won’t be eliminated completely. That’s because fat cells will store toxins that cannot be metabolized or eliminated. Many of us have anywhere from 400 to 800 toxins stored in fat cells. And fat cells are not eliminated completely by diet or exercise. They will shrink, but they can grow again.
So how can niacin be a booster rocket for detoxing? Niacin ruptures the fat cells that store toxins, thus releasing those stored toxins to be eliminated. This is called lipolysis. The niacin proposed is not buffered niacinamide, which doesn’t make your face and neck flush and tingle intensely. Use the niacin that makes you blush.
This protocol was developed primarily to help drug addicts detox drug toxins stored in fats. The idea was to get rid of all the drug residue that would haunt them with cravings after kicking their habit. It worked very well. So Dr. Yu thought it would be wise for non-addicts to use this method for “normal detoxification”.
He gave a lecture on this during a Longevity Conference hosted by nutrition expert David Wolfe. Dr. Yu spoke of starting with a low amount of niacin, 50 mgs or so depending on your tolerance, and gradually building to a maximum of 500 mgs. Up to 5000 mgs has been used for those gravely ill from drug use and toxic events, such as Gulf War Syndrome.
Getting Rid of What’s Released from the Fats
Most of us know that toxins released suddenly need to be eliminated. The liver, kidneys, and other organs can be seriously damaged. One can be overwhelmed by a vicious Herxheimer event or “healing crisis”. The protocol for addicts mostly involved eliminating through the skin.
They were put into an exercise regimen and ushered into saunas to literally sweat it out. One only needs to begin perspiring from whatever exercise that is do-able. Then the sauna takes over for a half hour to 45 minutes.
In addition to sweating it out, the GI tract can assist as well. Dr. Yu recommended consuming activated charcoal. It works by adsorbing toxins, not absorbing. Adsorption is more like chelating, hitching to electrons of toxins and taking them out through the stool or urine. More details on activated charcoal for detoxification are available in this Natural News article: http://www.naturalnews.com/028461_a…
Any other detox protocol or agent can be added to the niacin booster rocket. Bentonite clay, zeolite, cilantro pesto and chlorella are fine too. To protect a weakened liver, one may use gall bladder flushes and/or coffee enemas also. More on cleaning the liver with this Natural News article: http://www.naturalnews.com/031984_l…
The booster rocket is plain tingly fire in the face and upper body niacin. Niacinamide can be toxic for the liver. High doses of niacin have been used in orthomolecular medicine/psychiatry since the 1950s for a variety of health problems, even schizophrenia. So it’s safe and inexpensive and can be taken as often and long as you want.
(NaturalNews) The liver is an organ that removes toxins and other harmful substances from the body, allowing the body to function without experiencing the many illnesses and other harmful side effects that these toxins can cause. For this reason, it is crucial that individuals periodically detoxify their livers. One of the most common and effective natural liver detoxifiers is the beet. Beets have been used to fight liver toxins and to increase the overall level of health of individuals for many years, and they can be easily integrated into one`s diet to keep the liver working at an optimal level.
Beets are beneficial to one’s health for many reasons, as they are a high-antioxidant vegetable that contains a number of important substances, including: betaine, betalains, fiber, iron, betacyanin, folate, and betanin. Pectin, which is a fiber found in beets, can also help clean the toxins that have been removed from the liver, allowing them to be flushed out of the system instead of reabsorbed by the body. Because of this property, many medical professionals encourage individuals to eat beets raw without juicing them, so that these fibers can be ingested as completely as possible. This is not difficult, as they can be baked, grated, or roasted as well as eaten alone or incorporated into other dishes.
However, beet juice can be highly beneficial, as it allows the betaine to stay intact. Betaine is the substance that encourages the liver cells to get rid of toxins. Additionally, betaine acts to defend the liver and bile ducts, which are important if the liver is to function properly. This particular substance is also said by some to decrease the risk of coronary and cerebral artery diseases, as it lowers inflammation in the body, allowing the many systems to work without interruption.
Additionally, beets have been linked to the healing of the liver, a decrease in homocysteine, an improvement in stomach acid production, prevention of the formation of free-radicals in LDL, and the prevention of lung, liver, skin, spleen, and colon cancer. Though these health benefits are not directly linked to the detoxification of the liver, they allow the body as a whole to work more efficiently. Because the systems of the body are all intertwined and rely upon one another to work properly, this indirectly affects the ability of the liver to rid itself of toxins and continue to work at an optimal level.
The recommended serving of beets varies depending upon the source, so the best way to go about integrating them into a diet is to start the day with beet juice instead of coffee, to add grated beets to salads and other dishes where appropriate, and to include a baked or roasted beet as a side dish with dinner as often as possible.
People who are looking for a natural way to improve the health of their liver and to enhance their overall vigor will quickly find that incorporating beets into their diet will allow them to function at a more efficient level. Because beets contain so many important substances, they will cause a marked improvement in both liver health and overall wellbeing.
