Ancient Oil DetoxTherapy

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This oil detox therapy was used by Ayurveda 5,000 years ago and is used today to detoxify the body. What is Ayurveda? Ayurveda is considered by many scholars to be the oldest healing science.Ayureda is a holistic approach to health that is designed to help people live longer, healthy, and well-balanced lives. The term Ayurveda is taken from the Sanskit (One of 22 scheduled languages of India) words ayus which means life or lifespan, and veda meaning knowledge. It has been practiced in India for at least 5,000 years. The basic principle of Ayurveda is to prevent and treat illness by maintaining balance in the body, mind and consciousness through proper drinking, diet, and lifestyle, as well as herbal remedies.

In recent times Dr. F. Karack wrote and presented a paper on this oil therapy at a medical conference where he  touted the amazing health benefits of this ancient therapy. This oil technique has a major effect on chronic and severely toxic patients. Severely damaged tonsils can often be saved from surgery. Since the tonsils are the first filtering system in the body for orally ingested toxins, this treatment helps to boost everyones’s immune system function through increased lymphatic cleaning of that area. Even if you have had a tonsillectomy ( The tonsils removed), the lymphatics in the tonsil area are still trying to function as a filter, and neutralize ingested toxins and microbes in the oral cavity. Other benefits of this oil therapy is improving dental health. Teeth become whiter, gums pinker and healthier looking, breath fresher. Anyone that has had a root canal done should be doing this therapy on a regular bases. A root canal done on a tooth kills that tooth so you basically have a dead tooth in your mouth. This now being a dead tooth will act as a “hotel” for bacteria which in turn can cause some serious health conditions not just in the mouth but throughout the body. By doing the oil therapy treatment a couple times a week you would “clean out” any harmful bacteria found in the tooth. Oil pulling therapy does not only detoxify the mouth but detoxifies the whole body. As blood goes through the blood vessels in the cheeks of the mouth the oil will pull out toxins. Many health problems can be reduced or eliminated by simply doing this oil therapy.

This oil pulling therapy is very simple, completely harmless and inexpensive unlike most medical treatments. The cost is the price of a daily spoonful of vegetable oil. Yet it is one of the most powerful forms of therapy.



 1) In the morning before breakfast, on an empty stomach, take 1 tablespoon of a high quality cold-pressed vegetable oil (olive oil, or any good plant based oil – not fish oils) in the mouth, but do not swallow. Swish the oil around in the mouth, “chew it”, and mix it with your saliva for 10-20 minutes. Then spit it into the toilet bowl.

Chewing activates the enzymes which draw toxins out to the blood. In 10-15 minutes, the blood from the entire body has had the opportunity to circulate through and around the mouth. After 10-20 minutes, the oil should be thinner and white. If it is still yellow, you have not held it in your mouth long enough. (10 minutes per “treatment” during the first week is usually sufficient, then increase to 15-20 minutes as you get clearer. Some people find 5 minutes to be a challenge,)

2) Immediately brush your gums, teeth, and tongue with warm salt/soda water – 1 cup water to ½ tsp salt and ½ tsp soda, or with food grade hydrogen peroxide diluted in water. Then gargle and spit with remaining salt/soda water. It is also helpful to tip the cup under the nose and gently sniff up the water to clean the nasal passages. Then gently blow the nose.The sink should be cleaned afterward, because the saliva contains harmful bacteria and toxic body waste.

3) Repeat this procedure two to three times a day, before meals, on an empty stomach. Continue this procedure until you are healthy (a few weeks to years….!!)

I have found the same amazing results, especially in patients who are detoxing their petroleum solvents. Remember that petroleum solvents are attracted to fats and oils and will readily be absorbed into the oil. Additionally, the toxic metals/minerals form soap complexes with the oil, and they can easily be eliminated through spitting.
