Oil Pulling

Postby corplinx » Sun Mar 09, 2014 8:12 pm

Swishing oil around in your mouth has become a thing. Like most alt-med (drinking game) it claims to:
detoxify (take a drink)
help sinuses (take a drink)
sleep better (take a drink)

It is primarily for the mouth though.
whitens teeth!
makes gums healthy!
cures bad breath!
fixes cavities!

So, like many things I don't even bother researching.... I will just state the obvious.

If swishing oil in your mouth did all that, the toothless hicks at walmart would be paragons of health, and not missing all their teeth.

Even if swishing oil in your mouth for 20 minutes did clean your teeth, why would you want to when you can just brush them instead?

This is quite possibly the most idiotic thing I've head about recently.

I gather it depends on what type of oil.

Coconut Oil. You know, the stuff they pop popcorn in. It's why all those people at county fairs are so healthy.

Someone needs to pretend Bierce's Oil of Dog is real.

It is said that bitumen, being much more completely natural – straight from Mother Earth –, and sanctified by thousands of years of usage since the Sumerians, at least, is even more effective. Gargle thrice a day.

Gluten free soap… the stupidity is staggering. But especially for our dear Doc, this testimonial from the site:

Wow!

My daughter (16 years old) dyed her hair purple and then went to watch a football game in the rain. Her hair “bled” onto a white puffy vest with black lining. Soap Works saved the day with their safe bleach. I put the vest in the washer to soak with 3 teaspoons of bleach and warm water. An hour later, it came out perfect!

It turns into oil at a very low temperature. Apply it to your face as pre-shave oil. It melts as it goes on. (this is what I do, since pre-shave oils are ridiculously expensive while a jar of coconut oil is not).

Perverts are also known to use it during fornication.

Subtle humor there. When did lard become pareve?
