Oil Pulling Therapy for a Tooth Abscess
Holistic Treatment Instructions:
- You'll Need: Sesame or Sunflower Oil - 1 Tablespoon
The ancient practice of oil pulling from the Ayurvedic tradition is an increasingly popular therapy for its ability to pull toxins out of the body. It may not relieve dental pain immediately, but it can address the abscess within a few days of repeated use.
Before brushing your teeth and with an empty stomach, take one Tbsp of oil into your mouth and swish it around for 10-20 minutes until the oil has turned milky white. Then spit out. Food oils of any kind are generally fine, but sesame and sunflower oils are the most popular.
CAUTION! A tooth abscess can quickly develop into an even more serious health condition. If not dealt with effectively, an abscess can spread its infection to the blood, heart, or brain causing serious harm and in some cases death. A dentist or doctor's care may be advisable even at the first appearance of the tooth abscess.
