Healthtalks :: oil pulling – the what the, who the and how the!?

How cute is this image of Jess? She’s preforming part of her morning routine – the routine we talked about a few weeks back. Today she’s oil pulling! It’s not anywhere near as dangerous as it sounds. She isn’t drilling for oil, nor is she pulling oil out of her nostrils – today Jess demonstrates how to use oil to ‘pull’ out the bacteria and toxins found in the mouth. It’s a great way to cleanse – and way better than the tongue brushing!

We nut through the how and why – take a peek. And if you thought previous episodes were funny… THIS takes the cake. You’ve been warned, DON’T watch this whilst sipping tea. It may come out your nose… just saying.


As always – I’d love to hear your thoughts on this weeks segment of healthtalks – share it with your friends or open up some discussion in the comments window below.

    Hi Nat,

    I was just reminded of oil pulling and decided to try it – made it through the full 20 minutes on my first go!

    Can you just clarify for me, is it ok to brush your teeth normally after doing this? Jess mentions brushing her teeth but not whether she uses regular toothpaste etc. I’m assuming since it’s part of a morning routine that it’s fine but just wanted to check, don’t want to undo all my good work!

    Also, does it actually matter when in the day you do this? Would doing it before brushing before bed be as effective? Not sure I can force myself out of bed 20 minutes earlier to do this in the morning 😉
