Oil Pulling is Not a New Fad
Ayurveda is the traditional healing modality of the Vedic culture from India. It is said to be 2000 to 5000 years old, meaning it has stood the test of time. Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word that literally translates as “the wisdom of life” or “the knowledge of longevity”. In these teachings it is said that stimulating and cleaning points on the tongue positively affects various internal organs, such as the heart, kidney and liver. This in turn helps reduce fluid retention that causes feelings of bloating and puffiness and also aids weight loss.
A Healthy Body is a Happy Body
Because Oil Pulling rids your body of toxins it eases the workload of the liver. The liver is a super important organ that affects all other organs in the body, and is the head honcho of the organs that are responsible for the disposal of toxins. When there are too many toxins in the body that are taken in through the mouth from things like medicine, food additives, sweeteners and air pollution, the liver has to work overtime in order to keep up, and the other organs in the body, including organs that affect weight loss, get swamped. Oil pulling can help to reduce the amount of bacteria and toxins in the body and reduce the workload of the liver.
This is especially relevant to weight loss because of the fact that when the liver becomes overloaded with toxins or parasites it cannot burn body fat efficiently. The liver is an important organ for burning fat in the body. It regulates the metabolism and pumps fat out of the body through the small intestines via bile. Therefore, it is important to keep the liver working at an optimal level.
