    Oil Pulling?? Anyone know if this is legit??

    http://www.fashionlush.com/wtf-is-oi...why-im-hooked/

    Excerpt:
    "Oil pulling has been around for years, which makes me mad Iíve only just found out about it. Itís an ancient Ayurvedic technique that basically involves you swishing oil in your mouth for 20 minutes (no more no less) & it pulls toxins out of your body through your mouth. The idea behind it is pretty simple stupid- the oil is ďstickyĒ and when you swish it around in your mouth bacteria gets stuck in the oil & dissolves.

    Itís easy to do. Pick an oil, you can use ORGANIC coconut oil or sesame oil (I prefer coconut cause it also has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, & anti-inflammatory properties), put anywhere from a teaspoon to a tablespoon (depending on what you can handle) in your mouth, swish for 20 minutes.

    I know, I know you are freaking out about the 20 minute thing, but TRUST me when I say- it flies by. Something about the whole process is relaxing to me. No talking, just swishing. Pull the oil through your teeth & make sure NOT to swallow it. Once you start, that oil fills up with toxins (the ones youíre going to get rid of), you donít want to swallow!! When your timer beeps, spit out the toxic waste into a plastic baggy or directly into the trash. Donít spit it down the drain cause the oil will solidify again & mess up your pipes."

    Nice, a girl from work sent me that article and I'd never heard of it, figured you guys would know. Definitely going to try it, sounds like there's a wide range of benefits.

    How hard is it to not swallow any and how brutal is it if you do?

    Sounds sketchy. Any reputable medical documentation on it?

    Exactly which toxins are they claiming that the oil binds to? It could not detoxify anything except your mouth, maybe.
