Oil Pulling

I've started "oil pulling" in the mornings. This simply means that after I wake up, before I brush my teeth, I swish sunflower oil around my mouth--supposedly for around 15 minutes, in reality for about 3 minutes. I have heard great dental and oral healing attributed to this method, cavities cleansed, plaque removed, and... teeth whitened! The website promoting the method also says that it cures all kinds of non-oral diseases, but I don't know about that.

It feels really nice. I brush my teeth afterwards, but I could well imagine the method being able to replace tooth brushing in a toothbrush-free world.

I'm sure there are some other nice things I'm doing but at this hour, I can't remember what they were.
