How to "Oil Pull?"
Upon waking in the morning, and preferably on an empty stomach, rinse your mouth for 15-20 minutes by taking one tablespoon of of unrefined, sunflower or sesame oil orally, and spit out. 

Slowly move the oil around the mouth in a swishing, rinsing, sipping, or sucking fashion, making sure to breathe slowly through the nose to prevent any itching or coughing sensation.


Try to pull it slowly through the teeth. By doing this, you will mix your saliva with the oil, which will eventually become thinner. You will notice it becoming thinner around the fifteen-minute mark. The act of swishing the oil around in the mouth stimulates the enzymes present in the mouth, which in turn removes the toxins from the blood. Do not to swallow the oil as it will contain the toxins removed from your body. If you should happen to swallow it, do not panic as your body will go through the process of filtering it out naturally.

When the fifteen to twenty minutes are up and you spit out the oil, it will look white. The white oil contains the toxins pulled from your body through the mouths mucous membranes. If you notice that the oil did not turn white and is instead yellow, this means that you did not pull the oil long enough. Simply spit it out, rinse the mouth well with water to remove the toxic oil from the teeth and gums and start over with another tablespoon of oil.

If you want to speed up your body's healing you may rinse your mouth with unrefined sunflower or sesame oil three times a day before meals.
