    Hi all,

    I saw another site talking about this. I will be grateful if we could share our experiences on oil pulling here in IL. I tried it for a month last year. What are the benefits of oil pulling? Is it just a hype? Pls give your opinions.

    Mrs Seetalakshmi, Sathya/Bambi- what is the take of nature cure on this?

    Thanks

    Hi
    I used to wonder about this oil pulling too ! ( Why "Pulling" ? instead of gargling ?)
    The makers of Idhayam Nallennai had once put out a very detailed promotional article about this, claiming it to be the ultimate panacea for all human ills. Never tried it though. Main reason: How would one spit out a mouthful of oil everyday without creating total chaos inside the bathroom plumbing ?

    Ha ha ha...

    ...!...The laugh onslaught was brought by Vidyasarada's post! Hmm..Vidyasarada...a problem indeed!
    As for this oil-pulling, Vidya, I have done this few years back! This was in Germany and many of my friends were into it and I thought I would give it a try. I might have done that for a month or so. After that, I just gave it up. One look at my friends and myself proved to me that we were all exactly the same as before, no one was glowing with health or well-being. We were just like we...were! So why do this every morning when I have other better things to do!...Well, that is me Vidya, your ever skeptical friend. Give it a try, no harm.

    oil pulling pannalayo adhi kaalai?

    hello

    til oil is used when u have ulcers in the mouth
    and ulcers in the mouth is often an indication of
    either indigestion or ulcers in the stomach
    gargle with til oil
    swish it around your mouth for sometime
    twenty minutes as advised looks like a pretty long time when u try
    and spit it away
    (perhaps not in the bathroom but on a compost heap )

    u do get relief from mouth ulcers by this method
    although u cant over eat, have indigestion and still cure yourself of mouth ulcers just by oil swishing

    regarding over all health it may be true in the long run
    but you cant see for sure that oil pulling alone is responsible for your better state of health.. as said earlier u have to take care of your diet, exercise etc.

    morning is a good time to try .. it does have its advantages though
    you can sit around ``oil pulling'' not having to talk to boring talkers on phone or cell ..look ``within'' on any topic that needs your attention without having to talk to anyone.. just anounce a daily routine/time!!

    vaayila kozhappi kozhappi
    suthithaan
    ennaiyum eno nuraikkudu
    ennayum nuraiyum
    serndudaan komattikindu
    varugudaam
    thuppinalum adaikkudaam
    bathroom saakkadaiyellam
    aruvaru
    ennaya koppalithu paarungo
    pala noigalellam theerudam
    irandu teaspoon ennayathaan
    koppalithu thuppidaan paarkanum
    thalaivaliyum , thiruguvaliyum
    oda oda viraatanum!

    Re: Oil Pulling

    dear friend

    My grand mother used to compel us doing this. Her reason was to reduce the heat in the body and preventive for mouth ulcers.

    Dear chitvish

    thanks for helping to get more informations.
