Oil Pulling Therapy

Effective Natural Detoxification, Stimulation of Elimination, Self-Help Cure and Prevention of Many Diseases Incl. Cancer?

Information summarized, partially excerpted and/or translated from various sources, particularly

Copyright © 2006 & 2007 Healing Cancer Naturally

The practice of oil pulling apparently is a time-honoured tradition in parts of the world. Oil pulling therapy simply consists in thoroughly sloshing certain types of commonly found cooking oil in the mouth for up to twenty minutes (for details see Instructions: how oil pulling is done). This practice is said to draw toxins & destroy natural mouth germs while stimulating the body's eliminatory system and increasing metabolism, thus leading to improved health and the conquering of disease.

In fact, thanks to this double action, oil pulling therapy is claimed (according to Dr. Karach MD as well as others) to have healed illnesses and complaints as diverse as bronchitis, tooth pain, diseased teeth, headaches & migraines, eczema, thrombosis, chronic sleeplessness, arthritis & related illnesses, diseases of stomach & intestines (such as ulcers, gastro-enteritis, peritonitis), kidney, liver, lung and heart disease, blood disorders (such as chronic blood diseases like leukemia), women’s diseases & hormonal disorders and diseases affecting the nervous system (such as encephalitis, meningitis, and neuro-physiological paralysis). It is also said to prevent the growth of malignant tumors, to cut and heal them, to be a heart attack preventative, to cure diseases brought on by toxic drugs, and is even credited with the cure of diabetes.

Dr. Karach himself claims to have cured his own chronic blood disease of fifteen years standing using the oil therapy and that the same method healed an “acute arthrosis” (which had made him bed-ridden) within three days.[1] Added benefits reported concern the fastening of loose teeth, the healing of bleeding gums and the visible whitening of teeth.
For detailed information on tooth and gum benefits of oil pulling, see Oil pulling for dental health and healing.

In other words, oil therapy is claimed (according to Dr. Karach MD and others) to be some kind of panacea of both curative and preventative power with the added bonus of potentially doubling the presently observed average human lifespan. Additionally, “in terminal diseases such as cancer, Aids and chronic infections, this treatment method has been shown to successfully replace all others. ... a wide variety of symptoms have unquestionably disappeared without any side effects. ... diseases which would normally be treated by an operation or by powerful or potent drugs, usually with significant side effects.”

Interestingly, oil pulling is also part of the daily morning routine prescribed in conventional and alternative cancer treatment researcher Lothar Hirneise’s new cancer treatment center in Germany.

While it seems that noone so far has done any placebo-controlled double-blind studies on the possible or actual benefits of oil pulling for health[2], so any healing reports so far published could be easily dismissed as simple anecdotes based on the powerful placebo effect, the simplicity, apparent harmlessness as well as inexpensiveness of application of this biological healing/detoxification method (see Instructions) and the possible rewards concerning internal detoxification to be reaped make it seem advisable to at least give oil pulling a thorough try. Perhaps, as Dr. Karach claims, oil therapy is indeed able to help heal the human organism in its entirety, to effectively treat all types of diseases and “in some cases enabling one to avoid surgical intervention and the taking of medications that can have harmful side effects”.

Some laboratory results however - a world-first

The German book Die Heilkunst von Morgen [The Healing Art of Tomorrow] by Erika Herbst contains the very impressive results of a man who had his saliva tested for eight industrial toxins in the laboratory after oil pulling with sunflower oil. While the sunflower oil itself (before oil pulling) contained infinitesimal amounts of environmental toxins such as Lindan, PCB 138, PCB 153, PCB 180, HCB, DDE etc., the saliva-cum-oil-mix contained up to 27 times as much and even contained toxins that had no detectable levels in the oil prior to pulling. In other words, the body had indeed excreted these toxins in the process of oil pulling.

Water pulling instead of oil pulling

According to the book quoted above, pulling with water (or herbal tea) will have the same detoxifying effect as pulling with oil while of course taking a burden from the waste water purification system. You may also wish to experiment with different healing herbs. If you do use oil, to protect the environment spit out into a paper towel.

Meanwhile (since 28 October 2013) we also have the results of a first trial study comparing the effectiveness of water pulling with that of oil pulling in reducing oral bacteria and plaque counts (both were shown to be massive).

Why oil pulling works

According to the independent German popular science magazine "Der Naturarzt" devoted to subjects surrounding naturopathy (founded around 1882), oil (or water) pulling has the following effects: it activates lymphatic flow and thus increases detoxification and the elimination of metabolic acids. The suction movement activates the thymus gland (the motor of metabolism and "awakener" of vital energy). Finally the mouth's acupuncture points are stimulated.

Personally I suspect another major reason behind oil pulling's apparent ability to improve or actually heal various conditions: a number of pioneer dentists and researchers have found a direct link between "hidden" dental infections (such as jawbone cavitations[3]) as well as so-called interference fields[4] in the oral cavity, and a wide variety of complaints ranging all the way from skin issues to psychosis.[5]

Now regular oil (or water) pulling both measurably reduces bacterial load AND by mechanical and other action stimulates local blood and lymphatic circulation which is likely to have a deeper-reaching effect, i.e. able to positively influence (and conceivably reduce or eliminate and thus "cure") deeper-lying infections and diseased tissues in the mouth as well. And as the latter are erased, the conditions formerly arising from them would also cease.

This deeper healing effect may be most pronounced in those who use olive oil. Erudite naturopath Father Thomas Häberle noted that he reaped great successes using olive oil for diseases of the bones and head since "olive oil is able to penetrate even the hardest bones and bring healing where it is needed".[6]

Which oils to use (if you don't want to use water)

Recommended oils to use for oil pulling are sunflower and sesame oil, both of which have been found to be equally effective in healing diseases. Also mentioned are peanut oil and “distal oil”, the latter possibly being a mistranslation from the German Distelöl (safflower oil). Quote: “Other oils were not found to be as good/We have observed that any oil other than SUNFLOWER or SESAME may not be effective. Do not blame oil pulling by practicing with other oils.” Apparently, a normal refined sunflower oil as found in supermarkets has proved to be effective in numerous people. But “Our experience with thousands of people across the globe says USE COLD-PRESSED OIL as first choice, if it is not available use REFINED OIL.”

For patients following the Budwig diet & protocol, it is however imperative to exclusively go for organic cold-pressed oils. Even for the general reader, Healing Cancer Naturally recommends to always, if possible, choose the best possible quality in foodstuffs, both in the interest of one’s own health and the environment.

Instructions: how oil (or water) pulling is done

In the morning before breakfast (i.e. on an empty stomach), take one tablespoon into the mouth (don’t swallow it). Move the fluid slowly around your mouth, as you would when rinsing your teeth. While keeping your mouth closed, slosh the fluid around your oral cavity, pulling it through your teeth, sucking it etc. Do this for fifteen to twenty minutes. “Chewing” in this manner draws a lot of saliva and gradually dilutes the oil which becomes thoroughly mixed with saliva in the process. Swishing is said to activate the enzymes, with the enzymes drawing toxins out of the blood. As you continue this process, the oil-saliva mix gradually becomes more and more liquid and thin and acquires a whitish look (if the oil remains yellowish, it has not been pulled long enough).

Spitting and cleansing

The watery oil/saliva mix is then spat out. It must not be swallowed, for the liquid has become toxic from poisons being drawn from the circulation through the mucous membranes of the mouth. After spitting the oil, the oral cavity must be thoroughly rinsed and washed with water a number of times. Cleanse your teeth with a toothbrush or use your fingers; if you spat oil into the sink (rather than a paper towel), also properly clean the sink, because the oily liquid expelled contains large amounts of bacteria and other harmful/toxic bodily waste (apparently, a microscopic review would reveal microbes in their first stage of development in this liquid). “Pulling Oil pulls out disease elements from the system (body) and restores health.”

Those who prefer visual demonstrations will find numerous videos on youtube demonstrating the very simple technique.

When to do oil pulling - is there a best time to practice?

Best time to do the oil pulling routine is said to be in the morning before breakfast (where it can easily be integrated into the rest of one’s morning routine).

The ancient Ayurveda healing system advises to do oil pulling in the morning after brushing your teeth and cleaning your tongue and on an empty stomach. Similarly Dr Karach advises oil pulling before breakfast on an empty stomach (one hour after drinking water, tea, coffee or other liquids in the morning, but before breakfast. Generally, the best time for oil pulling would be when you do not feel well (for any health problem make sure to do oil pulling on an empty stomach).

Recommended frequency of oil pulling states that to enhance the claimed healing process, oil pulling can be repeated three times a day (always before meals on an empty stomach) but it also says that only the patient himself can answer this question depending on how he feels which tells him if he needs more or less applications of the oil pulling routine.

How long to do the oil pulling advises to keep up the practice until one has recovered one’s original strength and freshness, enjoys good appetite and memory and regularly wakes up refreshed, after a restful sleep, “without black circles under your eyes”.

When initial worsening of symptoms is observed

Patients suffering from more than one disease can experience a worsening of their situation in the beginning. Dr. Karach - like other naturopaths - believes that an apparent worsening of one’s state of health is a propitious sign (often referred to as healing crisis) indicating that your disease is disappearing. This includes healing fever. He advises not to interrupt the treatment when one’s state seems to be worsening. In fact he believes that by discontinuing the oil pulling, one also interrupts the healing activities stimulated by the oil pulling.

Claimed time requirements to achieve healing/cure claims that oil pulling will speedily cure acute diseases in two to four days, while chronic diseases usually require more time, sometimes even one year, and advises persistence in application.

Oil pulling caveats & precautions

(a) Don’t swallow the oil after completion of the process but spit it out. Do not worry, however, about any oil accidentally swallowed. It will simply be discarded through the normal elimination channels.

(b) If you are allergic to a particular brand of oil, change the brand or type of oil to a different one. Or as mentioned above, simply use the (environmentally preferable) water pulling method.

© One author I have seen warning against oil pulling for people who carry amalgam fillings, claiming that even more mercury than “normal” will/could be released by this practice.

User experiences & results of oil pulling:
On diseases reportedly cured by oil pulling

One of many impressive results reported is that of a 90 year old German woman who after suffering from neurodermatitis for years virtually eliminated it by oil pulling.

In 1996, an Indian daily (Andhra Jyoti) conducted a survey among its readers on the effects of oil pulling on various diseases. 1041 readers responded, 927 (89%) of which reported healing effects (curing one or more diseases). 114 or 11% did not report any disappearance of symptoms/illnesses. The chronic diseases reportedly cured were the following:

Diseases like polio, cancer, leprosy, polycystic kidney, neural fibroma, paralysis etc.: 72 cases
Diseases pertaining to the female reproductive system: 21 cases
Piles: 27 cases
Diabetes: 56 cases
Heart disease and blood pressure: 74 cases
Arthritis and joint pains: 91 cases
Constipation: 110 cases
Digestive system: 155 cases
Skin problems such as pigmentation, itching, scars, black patches, eczema etc.: 171 cases
Allergy and respiratory problems such as asthma, bronchitis etc.: 191 cases
Physical pains and problems with the neck & head area: 758 cases
In addition to the above-cited case of neurodermatitis, Erika Herbst in her book "Die Heilkunst von Morgen" reports a number of other healings due to oil pulling. These include one or more cases of tinnitus, colitis, sleeplessness, excess mucus, blood in urine, tiredness incl. after meals, arthritic stiffness, major pain in hands, a leg that had already turned blue from diabetes, headaches, coughing, bronchitis, chronic sinusitis, head cleared, firmer skin, hot flashes gone, initial worsening of symptoms followed by healing, no more colds or flu, better evacuation, better sleep, acne gone, glaucoma improved, migraine gone, no more hayfever, general rejuvenation, prostatitis healed, diarrhea, nausea, lack of appetite, even varicose veins disappearing after oil pulling.

Cancer & joint pains: sample healing testimonies of chronic diseases

A homeopathic physician from India reports three cancer cases, two of which concern a “schirrus type of carcinoma of the uterus” (confirmed by biopsy report). Within two months of oil pulling, the bleeding was reduced, the general condition improved and both uterus carcinoma patients feel confident that their disease will be vanquished. “You know confidence/faith contributes to cure more than medicine.”

Compare Healing Cancer & Your Mind.

The third case involves a woman who developed a malignant tumor larger than a tennis ball on her jawbone (this patient is also on homeopathic medicines). After a month of oil pulling, pus was discharged from a hole that formed in the tumor on the jawbone. Three weeks later, the flow of pus stopped, the hole closed and the tumor reduced in size to almost undetectable. “In these cases, my medicines must have given temporary relief. I am hoping they will totally heal.” The same physician adds this observation: “In case of joint pains the improvement that would have resulted in eight months with my medicines, have come within two months of oil pulling.”

Personal testimonial: Diabetes - Pregnancy - Childbirth

(female, 41) "I am a diabetic patient with no children. After doing OP [oil pulling] for three months, I became pregnant. At the time of pregnancy, my blood sugar increased. I stopped [oil pulling] for about a month thinking it was aggravating my problem. Having come to know that aggravation is a sign of cure, I started [oil pulling] again. The sugar level came down and I continued [oil pulling] throughout my pregnancy. After a caesarian 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:
[Oil pulling] 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 gray."
Mrs AVL Umamaheswari, Commercial Tax Dept, Eluru, A.P.

Personal testimonial: Diabetes

"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 [oil pulling] 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 including vitamins, enzymes etc."
(Swami Swarupanand Bharati, (K.R.K.Chetty, IPS, D.I.G. [Retd.]), Hyderabad
© Copyright 2005-2006 writes that “additional research concerning Oil Therapy has now been thoroughly documented, especially with regard to physiological similarities between individuals.”


1 writes in another place that “Dr. Karach has successfully healed a chronic leukemia patient with 15 years of harsh treatment methods behind him. Acute arthritis in 1 patient who was totally bedridden was removed from his body in 3 days with no inflammation apparent.”

2 Update July 2010: To date, apart from impressive successful scientific studies into oil pulling's dental health benefits carried out in Indian research facilities, there indeed seems to be no scientific research that has looked into oil pulling as a cure for disease or as a detoxification method (this may simply be another case of "follow the money", of course).

Quote:This Treatment Sucks Infections Out of Your Body Like A Vacuum Cleaner

It’s been called ridiculous… gross… outrageous… crazy… impossible! Those are just a few of the things people say when they first hear about this detox that costs about a quarter a day.

Yet this ancient Ayurvedic practice is becoming popular in many health circles – and there’s evidence it works. Let’s have a look. . .

Continued below…

Millionaire’s Amazing Secret Can
Radically Transform Your Health

For most people, wrinkles… forgetfulness… low energy… sleep trouble… and an onslaught of health problems are the normal part of aging.

But one Beverly Hills millionaire proved they don’t have to be!
At 65 years of age, “Mister B” is at the peak of health. He’s bursting with energy… never gets sick… has normal blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar levels… boasts a laser-sharp memory… and looks decades younger than his chronological age.

What’s his secret?

He does ONE thing differently than most everyone else.

Oil pulling is a detox tactic that promotes cleansing and healing in your mouth. And it’s not just for dental health, but may also heal a wide range of problems including migraines, PMS, skin diseases, digestive troubles, and possibly even cancer and heart disease. At least that’s what the anecdotal reports say.

Testimonials from fans don’t make for scientific studies that get published in medical journals, but oil pulling apparently does no harm, so you might want to try it for yourself. I’m on record as believing case studies – anecdotes, if you will – are important and valuable evidence.

What it is and how it works. . .

Oil pulling is the practice of swishing (not gargling) oil around your mouth. It sounds similar to using a mouthwash, but it’s a harder workout. You’re expected to push, pull, and draw the oil through your teeth for 15 to 20 minutes – far longer than the typical 30 to 60-second oral rinse.

The effect is supposed to be like a vacuum cleaner that sucks viruses, bacteria and fungi out of your body. It “pulls” disease-causing bacteria and their toxins from your teeth and gums, and is said to be far more cleansing than any toothbrush or mouthwash. (But this doesn’t mean you should quit brushing!)

After swishing, spit it into a paper towel and throw it away. Rule #1: Never ever swallow it, because it’s filled with toxins.

Sesame and sunflower oils were traditionally used in oil pulling, but coconut oil offers the benefits of being a proven antimicrobial and consisting of 50% lauric acid, a valuable nutrient.

Microbes in your mouth cause
a wide range of diseases…

Your mouth is home to millions of microorganisms — some friendly, some not. In fact, there are more bacteria in your mouth than there are people on earth. And they include more than 600 bacteria species.

Your immune system is constantly fighting harmful bacteria – the menaces that cause tooth decay, gum disease, and promote many other diseases. Oral bacteria have been plausibly linked to heart disease, cancer and even arthritis. They contribute to inflammation, which figures in almost all the so-called diseases of aging.

Consider these staggering statistics from the Centers for Disease Control. The CDC’s numbers suggest most people need dental help:

40% of all children over 12 have gum disease
9 out of 10 people have tooth decay
one-third of adults over 65 have lost all their natural teeth
50 percent of adults will have lost half their teeth by age 65
Advocates of oil pulling say it’s extraordinarily effective at removing bad bacteria and protecting your teeth and gums.

Compare it to your car’s oil, which picks up dirt and grime. When you change your car oil, the gunk drains out with the oil, leaving your engine clean. So it runs smoother, lasts longer. That’s what you want for your teeth and body, too.

What to Expect from Oil Pulling

The first thing most people notice when they start oil pulling is whiter teeth, healed gums, fresher breath, slowed inflammation, and healed oral infections. Bleeding gums may disappear, and tooth decay may slow down.

Your experience may differ from others. Many people report softer skin, better bowel movements, softer hair with less gray. . .and the list goes on. (This is already sounding too good to be true, but I’m tempted to try it.)

But heads up… some experience a healing crisis!

Some people experience a healing crisis at the beginning, others later, and some not at all. A healing crisis is a detox reaction to the natural healing that’s taking place. Symptoms subside as your body becomes detoxified.

It’s called a Herxheimer (or Jarish-Herheimer) reaction, brought on by the rapid die-off of harmful organisms in the body, and it’s a risk with any detox procedure. One option is to slow down the pace of the detoxification (for example, do oil pulling every other night) so your body can flush the toxins out at a pace you can tolerate.

Oil pulling is said to relieve these problems

People have testified that oil pulling has helped heal various conditions including:

Acne Constipation
Allergies Diabetes
Arthritis Eczema
Asthma Insomnia
Back/Neck Pain Migraines
Bronchitis PMS
Chronic Fatigue Sinusitis
Colitis Ulcers
Crohn’s Disease


Besides those, observers have also linked the conditions below to oral health, so these may also be influenced by oil pulling:

Disease Kidney
Atherosclerosis Liver Disease
Blood Disorders Meningitis
Brain Abscess Nerve Disorders
Cancer Osteoporosis
Emphysema Pneumonia
Gallbladder Disease Preeclampsia & birthing difficulties
Gout Psychosis
Heart Disease Stroke
High blood sugar Toxic Shock Syndrome
Infectious diseases Infertility


Most people have no idea how significant their dental health is!

Is there any evidence to back up oil pulling?

Many people think oil pulling sounds so far-fetched, they’re surprised it’s actually a topic of research. Here’s what some of the studies say:

A 2008 study found that oil pulling reduced the number of Streptococcus Mutans in dental plaque in just two weeks.i (These are the bacteria that cause plaque buildup and tooth decay.)
Another study compared the use of oil pulling with the mouth rinse Chlorhexidine. They both reduced gingivitis (gum disease). But oil pulling is much cheaper and a lot less nasty.ii
Bad breath (halitosis) is caused by the chemical and gas odor of bacteria. Research found that oil pulling helped reduce bad breath.iii

A study reported in the Journal of Oral Health and Community Dentistry compared oil pulling to tooth brushing and mouthwashes.
Participants in the study had mild to moderate gum disease and plaque buildup. They added oil pulling to their regular morning oral hygiene for 45 days… but just for 8 to 10 minutes, not the recommended 15-20.

Plaque and gum disease markers were carefully monitored during the study.

This chart dramatically shows how the three techniques compared:

1. Mouthwash

2. Tooth Brushing

3. Oil Pulling

1. Plaque Reduction
Reduced 20-26%

2. Reduced 11-27%

3. Reduced 18-30%

Gum Disease   Reduction(Gingivitis)
1. Reduced 13%

2. Reduced 8-23%

3. Reduced 52-60%

Oil pulling beat mouthwash and tooth brushing for reducing plaque and gum disease. The reduction in gum disease is especially impressive.

If they’d pulled for the normal 15 to 20 minutes a day, the results might have been even more dramatic.

These two men were
a century ahead of their time

So can oil pulling heal deadly diseases that modern medicine can’t? Well, the scientific studies don’t say for sure that it does. But…

One hundred years ago, two men discovered the link between dental and systemic health.

Dr. Charles Mayo (founder of the Mayo Clinic) and Dr. Weston A. Price believed that ALL oral infections affect you systemically – that is, they sicken the entire body, not just the mouth. Infections in the mouth freely enter the bloodstream to cause havoc elsewhere.

Dr. Price and his research partner, Edward C. Rosenhow, published more than 300 papers about this over the course of 56 years. Yet their studies have been suppressed and scorned for decades.

These pioneers also discovered that all root canals are havens for infection. Price performed experiments in which he pulled human teeth with root canals and planted them under the skin of a rabbit. The rabbit always died from the same disease the person suffered from.

Final tips before you give it a try...

Oil pulling is cheap. Your only expense is for the oil you use. It’s easy, too. Just swish one tablespoon of oil around your mouth for 15 to 20 minutes (just 1 teaspoon for children).

It doesn’t require fasting, dieting, big expense, or lots of muss and fuss. Maybe you can do other things while you’re at it, so it’s not down time.

Just remember the #1 rule: Never swallow your oil. (Don’t flush it down the toilet or spit in sinks either, unless you want clogged pipes.)

Dr. Bruce Fife is the leading expert on this subject today. He’s treated many patients with oil pulling, reviewed the latest research, and compiled his findings in the book, Oil Pulling Therapy: Detoxifying and Healing the Body through Oral Cleansing. His book includes many anecdotal stories and some advanced techniques.

But his four basic “rules” are:

Oil must be in the mouth a minimum of 15 minutes, swished (not gargled)
Must be done daily for 2 months for best results.
Can produce relief and side effects very quickly. You may experience a healing crisis, but that is not harmful and means you’re getting rid of microbes.
Oil pulling can help a root-canalled tooth, but you should still consider extracting root canalled teeth. (See George E. Meinig’s book Root Canal Cover Up.)
