Lt. Col. I. K. Rao, who is obsessed with the idea of propagating this simple therapy far and wide, was earlier suffering from asthma, palpitation, gas, insomnia, sensitivity to weather, food allergy etc. until 1992. Lt. Col. Rao started on this Oil-pulling Therapy after being inspired by a write-up published by Dr. Med Karch of Russia.
After just eighteen months of this simple therapy, he has not only got rid of his problems but looks ten years younger than his age. His wife got rid of her migraine, varicose veins and arthritis which were nagging her for thirty-four years. Lt. Col. Rao's whole family has now taken up this therapy for keeping themselves healthy.
When I met him first, at a course on Radionics, he told me about this therapy. Thanking his Russian Guru, he explained the therapy in detail at one of our follow-up courses for our Acupressure Club members.
Measure 10 ml. of refined sunflower oil or groundnut oil (approximately one table spoon) and without any great effort or hurry, wash and suck the oil inside the mouth like using a mouthwash. Never gargle or swallow the oil. Pull the oil through the teeth often and this oil will pull all the toxins from your body through saliva.
This process has to be carried out for at least ten minutes, preferably for fifteen to twenty minutes or till the oil becomes a thin white foam.
When to do?
Oil-pulling has to be done early in the morning on empty stomach before brushing the teeth for best results. It can be done twice or thrice in a day initially for quick results.
Precautions, if any?
One should never swallow the foamy substance because it contains toxins, germs and harmful bacteria drawn out of the blood.
Wash your mouth thoroughly and brush it as usual after spitting the foam.
Brisk walk for thirty minutes daily and sufficient intake of Water in regular intervals in a day are essential for curing any ailments.
Never spit the oil foam into your sink because the pipes will get clogged in the long run. If you stay in an apartment, use a sand-filled dust-bin and dispose it off regularly.
Who can benefit from Oil-pulling?
Any one from young to old can start on this therapy. It is more beneficial for curing colds, cough, asthma, digestive problems, chronic head-ache, pimples, cracking of feet etc. I have received a very positive feedback from our Acupressure Club members about the ailments mentioned here.
I shall appreciate if anyone with any ailment tries out this simple therapy and sends in an honest opinion for our research records.
First thing in the morning, after brushing your teeth but before eating or drinking, take 1 TBSP of either sesame or sunflower oil. Put the oil in your mouth, tilt your chin up and slowly swish, suck, chomp and pull through the teeth. Do this for at least 10 minutes. 15 - 20 minutes is better. You want the oil to become a thin, white foam when you finally spit it out. If it's still yellow, you haven't done it long enough.
You can do this 2 more times during the day if you want to detox faster. Make sure you do it on an empty stomach, however. Spit it out in the toilet when your mouth is full and rinse your mouth out well.
Follow with 2 - 3 glasses of water.
DO NOT SWALLOW THE OIL!
It now contains parasites and bacteria!
