OIL PULLING. It is a simply one of the simplest, most fantastic health tips. It really has many health benefits that are so worth persevering with. Try it :-) Read down for people stories or more on line - this is one of those must reads - give it a go


Most people’s normal response is 'ugh' sounds horrible. This is your brains natural gag reflex. I had the same feelings too. And just practiced it until now it's normal and I now my body is used to it I enjoy oil pulling and it’s part of my day and so easy.

Don't do it around other people as they won’t like it 
Always do it when you are doing something else: showering - getting ready in the morning - doing odd jobs - being on the computer - hovering - experiment with what suits you - the time will go more quickly

Decide a time you are going to try it every day always before food on an empty stomach. It’s okay if you have drank some lemon water.

Always start with a small amount - try with a teaspoon/dessertspoon of oil for a few minutes and work up to more and longer slowly. Spit it out whenever YOU want. Then there is no need to panic. You are learning to do this so you can get used to it at your own pace. You will get past your feelings of 'ugh' to the opposite, but only by using a little oil and spitting out whenever you feel uncomfortable in any way.

Add a drop of fresh lemon juice to start with if it helps you. 
Spit down the loo - clean teeth if coated. As you practice this and your body detoxes you will get less coating and can simply rinse your mouth out.

It is only oil for a very short time and feels cool and soft in your mouth. Quickly it turns into watery white and still oily. When you have done it properly it turns to ‘coconut’ water which is white and watery then it’s time to spit it out. Ideally spit out when it’s turned to white water and there is no oiliness left.

What is Oil Pulling and Will it Pull Toxins from the Body?

According to Dr. Kurich, that this treatment will achieve remarkable results with illnesses like migraine headaches, bronchitis, diseased teeth, arterio thrombosis, chronic blood disorders such as leukemia, arthritis and related illnesses, neuro physiological paralysis, eczema, gastro enteritis, peritonitis, heart disease, kidney disease, meningitis, and women’s hormonal disorders are completely eliminated from the organism. The benefit of Dr. Karach's method is that the oil therapy heals the whole body in perpetuity. In terminal diseases such as cancer, aids and chronic infections this treatment method has been shown to achieve astonishing results.

O.K. this health practice seems a little strange at the outset. But many of its adherents make extravagant claims for it.

A Ukrainian physician, Dr F. Karach, presented what he called a remarkable treatment at a conference of the all Ukranische-Union of the Oncologists (specialists for tumour diseases) and Bacteriologists, a part of the Academy of Sciences of UDSSR. His talk involved a super simple healing process for the human body which he called Oil Pulling and which he said involved sunflower oil.

Per Dr. Karach the results are astonishing and thus fraught with scepticism, but by experimenting with the oil therapy everybody can see the results in his own body and become convinced.

It is more than surprising that with this totally harmless biological healing method one could achieve such success and healing results. It is hard to find anything to compare to it, says Dr. Karach, and he says further that most illnesses could be cured by this simple method without resorting to surgeries and prescription drugs. Dr. Karach even says it effects the duration of life with current man living only half of the time he could live. With this technique he could become 140 or 150 years old the Dr. says.

So how do you do it?

N.B. You can start with less than a tablespoon and do only for a few minutes. As you do this more you will soon become an expert. Keep oil in the bathroom. Do before you eat or on an empty stomach.

I do this in the morning and last thing as night when I shower. Massage feet and hands while you are doing it.

In the morning before breakfast on an empty stomach you take one tablespoon - if I know I only have 10 minutes or less I use a desert spoon of oil - in the mouth but do not swallow it. Move oil slowly in the mouth as rinsing or swishing and Dr Karach puts it as ' sip, suck and pull through the teeth' for fifteen to twenty minutes. This process makes the oil to be thoroughly mixed with saliva. Swishing activates the enzymes and the enzymes draw toxins out of the blood. The oil must not be swallowed, for it has become toxic. If you do swallow a bit no worries as it has come from your gut anyway. As the process continues, the oil gets thinner and white. If the oil is still yellow, it has not been pulled long enough. It is then spit from the mouth down the loo - the oral cavity must be thoroughly rinsed and mouth must be washed thoroughly. Just use any mouth wash or water. Clean your teeth as they become coated. This has in effect pulled toxins and poisons out through the mucous membranes of the mouth to be expelled down the drain.

It is important to understand that during the oil-pulling/swishing process one's metabolism is intensified. This leads to improved health. One of the most striking results of this process is the fastening of loose teeth, the elimination of bleeding gums and the visible whitening of the teeth.

The oil pulling /swishing is done best before breakfast. To accelerate the healing process, it can be repeated three times a day, but always before meals on an empty stomach.

Do not swallow. The oil should be spat out. But inadvertently if you swallow there is nothing to worry. It will go out through normal digestive process with no harm. Nothing is to be done.

If you are allergic to a particular brand of oil, change the brand of oil or oil itself to different oil. Sunflower and Sesame oil have been found to be equally effective in curing diseases. Other oils were not found to be as good, but could be used, for example peanut oil or coconut oil. Do not use unrefined oils.

According to Dr. Kurich, that this treatment will achieve remarkable results with illnesses like migraine headaches, bronchitis, diseased teeth, arterio thrombosis, chronic blood disorders such as leukemia, arthritis and related illnesses, neuro physiological paralysis, eczema, gastro enteritis, peritonitis, heart disease, kidney disease, meningitis, and women€™s hormonal disorders are completely eliminated from the organism. The benefit of Dr. Karach's method is that the oil therapy heals the whole body in perpetuity. In terminal diseases such as cancer, aids and chronic infections this treatment method has been shown to achieve astonishing results.

Forty five years of Asthma and Allergy cured

I am 56 years old. I have been suffering from allergy and asthma from the age of 11 years when I had my first menses. Whenever I had head bath after monthly periods I was suffering from asthma, cough and phlegm. It was very severe. This was lasting for about 3-4 days every month. In addition whenever I had head bath I used to suffer from the same type of allergy. I had tried all types of treatment for 45 years to get rid of this but without any success. I was spending my life with medicines but without cure. They had even diagnosed as a heart problem. I had lost hope of living. Life seamed a big burden and uncertain.

At this stage, on 3rd March 94 I met you (T Koteswara rao) in a marriage and you came to me and explained to me about OP and encouraged me to practice it. 2 months after practicing my problems of health became a little more severe and I took them as healing reactions and consoled myself with the hope that I am going to be cured totally after the reactions. These reactions lasted for about 2 months. Now after 9 months of OP I have become wonderfully healthy. Asthma has gone, no pains in the joints or body, no spots or discoloration of the skin instead the skin has acquired a new shine, digestion has improved and I can eat anything without the fear of allergy. It is really enjoyable to eat things, which you like instead of fearing about allergy and asthma.

My advice to all women is, do OP for all your problems you will remain healthy and your looks will improve.

Allergy Asthma- Exhilarating Experience

On the first day of OP Feb 25, 1995, I felt an exhilarating feeling of freshness in the mouth.

Because of OP, addiction to cigar smoking cured on Mar 28, 1995. I was able to work with increased energy, concentration and less impatience. My nostrils were clear and clean.

I had food allergic asthma from September 1975. By end of March '95, I gave up the use of inhalers for asthma.

Numbness in hands and legs disappeared in April 1995.

Discomfort in my feet and joints due to walking disappeared by April '95.

The food tastes better and I feel more energetic.

I am enjoying the freshness of mouth, good health and very sound sleep due to OP.

Allergic bronchitis with wheezing

For the last three months, my wife and I are doing OP regularly. I suffer from severe running nose. Now after I started doing OP, the running nose has become very mild and it persists only for a day or so. I also used to get severe bouts of cough and with great difficulty manage to get the sputum out. Now the running nose does not follow by cough.
My wife used to develop allergic bronchitis with wheezing due to dust or after severe cold and on long journeys. She tried OP for three months and did not develop wheezing or severe cough.

Cancer cases

Most importantly, I want to write about three cases of cancer. In two cases, biopsy report confirms carcinoma of uterus. In the third case, it is malignant growth of a tumour of a size bigger than tennis ball on the jawbone. This case is also of a woman on homeopathy medicines. Within two months of OP, in both cases of carcinoma of uterus bleeding reduced, general condition improved and they are confident that their disease will go. You know confidence/faith contributes to cure more than medicine.

In the case of malignant tumour after a month of OP, pus came out of a hole in the tumour on the jawbone. The pus stopped after three weeks, the hole closed and the size of tumour came down to almost normal. In these cases, my medicines must have given temporary relief. I am hoping they will totally heal.

In case of joint pains the improvement that would have resulted in eight months with my medicines, have come within two months of OP.

For allergy, asthma and tooth diseases, the results are wonderful. My medicines must have given only temporary relief. I am hoping OP will heal them totally.

Constipation and piles.

I have been practicing OP for the last one year with (sesame) oil for fifteen to twenty minutes daily in the morning without fail. I am 82 years old. I have been suffering from constipation and piles for the last four decades. I consulted many doctors, used many medicines but with only temporary relief.

Within two weeks of practicing OP, I started getting relief. There was no pain during motion. Inflammation and piles decreased. I started having free and clear evacuation. I am sleeping peacefully and happily at night. Indigestion, lack of appetite has gone. Decades old pain has gone just by doing OP with (sesame) oil. Our Ayurvedic treatment is a comprehensive solution for all diseases. It is good for all to practice.

Diabetes - Pregnancy - Child birth

My age is 41 years. I am a diabetic patient with no children. After doing OP for three months, I became pregnant. At the time of pregnancy, my blood sugar increased. I stopped OP for about a month thinking it was aggravating my problem. Having come to know that aggravation is a sign of cure, I started OP again. The sugar level came down and I continued OP throughout my pregnancy. After a caesarean operation, I gave birth to a baby. The doctors checked for sugar, both for the baby and me. We both were free from sugar. The wound healed well and stitches removed on the seventh day. Doctor was astonished at this. I found OP benefited me in the following ways:

I weigh 90 Kgs. with weak twisted foot. By walking, the foot used to become septic and pus used to ooze. By OP and walking daily, I became strong and was able to walk up the steps without difficulty.

OP reduced sugar gradually and diabetes cured. The skin became clear and shining and the spots on the body disappeared.

The body became strong, teeth firm; gums healthy and the hair turned black and stopped becoming white or grey.
Mrs AVL Umamaheswari, Commercial Tax Dept, Eluru, A.P.


At the advanced age of 74, it is unjust to expect miraculous result from any kind of therapy. Yet I must say that what I have experienced through OP therapy is almost a miracle and quite unbelievable.

Diabetes has been troubling me for the past 13 years. Now my blood sugar level is normal, though I do not take any medicine. I have discontinued all medication.

My oldest daughter has been oil pulling for about three months now. I hadn't seen her for a while so I stopped by her home just to chat. As I sat across the table from her I began to ask myself, "What is so different about Wendy?" At closer observation I saw that her skin and her hair looked so HEALTHY and youthful and she seemed to have an unusually positive outlook on life. (She has had some very stressful issues to deal with) I couldn't remain silent! I said "WENDY, WHAT are you doing different?" She smiled and asked me why I wanted to know? I told her I could see a difference in her skin and her hair immediately. And her teeth were nice and white (she smokes and drinks tea and coffee) ...... and, well, she seemed to be peaceful, almost joyful. She went and got her laptop computer and took me to Doctor K's web page. ......... WOW! I couldn't wait to find some oil to start pulling for myself! I've just started on my second week. I have noticed that I am sleeping so much sounder and my energy level has greatly increased! I can also attest to an elevated mood change which I love! I am 68 years old and have been in good health most of my life. I have hearing loss and ringing in my ears. Also I experience vertigo. I hope to report an improvement..... I feel something wonderful from deep within me. I intend to continue as long as I see such positive results

Retired Civil Surgeon’s Report- Left Ventricular failure

I had recently suffered from Left Ventricular failure. After 15 days of starting OP, I could find the change in my condition as evidenced by the echocardiogram. I was suffering from Acid Peptic disease (duodenal ulcer) for the past 30 years, and OP has miraculously given relief and I have stopped using antacids.

I had Benign Hypertrophy of Prostate since some years, and after OP nocturnal frequency of urine is much reduced.

Some minor ailments like stomatitis (inflammation of the mucus membrane of the mouth), glossitis (inflammation of the tongue), itching of skin on chest and neck, discoloration of skin have also gone.

After OP, I saw my palms appeared definitely bright and full-blooded. So I went to the laboratory and got my HB tested. I was surprised to see that my haemoglobin content of blood has risen from 11gms to 12.4gms within a period of 2 months.

(Mouth) Halitosis- bad smell in Mouth

I have been suffering from bad smell in the mouth and pyorrhoea for the last eight years. Mouth smell has not gone except visiting the dentist and getting things cleaned, and medication, Medication and dental cleaning was giving me only temporary relief. After five months of OP bad smell in the mouth has completely gone whereas, pyorrhoea has decreased and I feel confident that I will be normal without this problem. OP has helped me to bring back my self-confidence in a helpless state. With your kindness I am breathing happily and feel that you have given me rebirth.

I am one of the old patients suffering from mouth ulcer since last 12 to 15 years. After going through the article published in Kannada Prabha daily I started "OIL PULLING" twice in a day (morning & evening) from 27th of June 1995 along with medicine. During initial 2-3 months period I got only 25 % benefit. After that I got more benefit in 4-5 months period. After completing 6 months I got 100 % result and at the same time I slowly reduced my medicines. Now after completing of 7 months I have completely stopped the medicines and I have no complaints of mouth ulcer since last 2 to 3 months. So I am happy to say that I got 100 % relief/cure of my old sickness of mouth ulcer from "OIL PULLING".

Myasthenia Gravis (MG) [Double Vision]

In my 36th year in 1980, I had suddenly developed double vision and right eyelid closing. Diagnosed as myasthenia gravis, medicine (prostigmine) prescribed.

During the year 1993, I started practicing OP. I used medicine for one month along with OP. Later I stopped medicines and continued OP. Myasthenia Gravis cured without medicines. When I stopped for one month, it came up again. Now I do OP only and do not use any medicines.

(Pains) Back Pain, Neck Pain

I had back pain for the past ten years and have been taking treatment for the same with several doctors and traction was also given for sufficiently long time without any improvement. I never used to go to bed without a medicine like Brufen, Voveran and others daily.

After reading the essay by Sri Tummala Koteswara Rao on OP, I started practicing OP with sunflower refined oil and started finding improvement within fifteen days and I was much relieved of the pain within three months. Now it is six months since I have been doing it and 90% of the pain is relieved. Now along with the back pain, the pain in my neck and arm pits has also gone. I am not taking any medicine for the back pain. I do not dare to stop OP.

After finding good results myself, I started giving lectures in Telugu on "Keep Fit with OP" in various local schools and associations and all of them are doing and most of them are very much benefited.

Back pain and Arthritis

I have been suffering from arthritis in the knees for the last 10 years and pain in the lower back for the last two decades. I have tried several allopathic medicines and got a temporary relief. I started doing OP from Nov 17 1995 and observed miraculous changes happening. Within 5 days, my arthritis in the knees and lower back pain completely cured. It is just unbelievable how arthritis of the knees cured, which the allopathic medicines could not do.

Knee and Ankle Pain

Though I was reading the reports of the efficacy of OP in curing certain diseases, I did not begin until my brother, got relief from asthma and advised me to practice. I was not able to sleep under a fan or in the open as my nose used to block. Cold-water bath was another curse. After practicing OP, I am able to sleep right under the fan with full speed with no discomfort. The occasional asthmatic or eosinophilia attacks vanished. The pain on the left knee and right ankle for three to four years are no longer there. A small eruption on my skull - five years old - vanished. - 20 years old piles - has miraculously vanished.

Skin-- Eczema Cured

I am 79 years and have retired as a teacher. I wanted to be healthy by doing OP and have been practicing once daily since November 95. I have eczema for the last 30 years on the left foot. It has been there in spite of various treatments. Similarly, on the right hand index finger eczema is there for the last 10 years. I have lower back pain for quite few years. It was called spondylitis. I have been OP for the last 1 year and 8 months. Lower back pain has completely gone and no pain. Eczema on the right index finger is also cured and skin is normal. The eczema on the left foot is becoming normal with a little itching sometimes. I am sure it will also go, but the cure is simply surprising, but I am confident that the remaining symptoms of eczema on the left foot will also be cured.

Tooth Pain and Loose Teeth

I am an 86 year, aged retired public servant. I developed tooth ache. The toothache was really agonizing. I thought, I may try, being a sceptic, oil pulling before visiting the dentist. Hardly did I try it for a couple of days then the intensity of ache came down. In another two days the pain stopped totally. This pain was centred on an incisor the base of which was affected and tooth itself was shaking. Having got some relief I developed faith in its efficacy and continued the treatment for a fortnight. The affected tooth miraculously firmed up and now I am able to bite fruits and other not so hard items of food. This is a radical change....I feel thankful for this therapy.
