No, there’s no need to. It’s important to brush after oilpulling and clean the mouth thoroughly after toxins are drawn out with salt and water as explained before.
There’s no rule of thumb different oils will behave differently, so don’t pay attention to when the oil becomes white. Do the oilpulling for 20 minutes and you will notice that oil becomes white.
It is very common. Because we are not tuned into take oil in our mouths, for first few times there will be some difficulty. You would be amazed by how quickly you can get used to it! It helps if you think about keeping the oil around your teeth and not toward the back of your mouth. Keeping the head tilted down a bit can help with that. Five minutes may be all you need initially, but you may also be able to increase the time because it will become more comfortable. Experiment and you’ll find out what works best for you.
If you need to swallow a bit during oilpulling, the toxins being drawn out can usually be handled by the digestive system and eliminated properly. When you feel the urge to swallow, just spit the whole thing and restart.
You’re probably doing it too vigorously. Just relax and do the swishing in a more relaxed way.
First, it helps not to have a full stomach if you get a little queasy from the oilpulling experience before you get used to it. Second, the detoxifying effect is a bit stimulating, whereas digestion involves the parasympathetic nervous system, so those are opposite functions. Eating something light may not be a problem, and you can judge by how you feel. If you can oil pull first thing in the morning, that takes care of that problem.
The idea is, the viscosity and color should change significantly, but the color depends on so many factors, and can even be slightly different each time. A milky or creamy color is fine.
Keep your toothbrush clean by letting it dry out completely between uses. Use one in the morning and a different one at night.
Q: Are there any diet restrictions with Oilpulling?
No actual diet restrictions per se, but oilpulling will work better the more you eat a diet that is right for you individually. You can eat right after oilpulling, no problem.
