At Home Treatment Oil pulling
A valuable home remedy during detoxification plans is oil pulling. In the morning, take 1 tbsp of oil - preferably use one whose taste you like (grapeseed oil, olive oil, coconut oil etc) - in the mouth. You pull the oil back and forth in the mouth, a bit like rinsing after brushing your teeth, from front to back, from right to left, from top to bottom. It is important that the oil should not be swallowed - because the toxins that are released should not be reintroduced into the body. After about 3 minutes, the structure of the oil has changed, it has now become milky. The oil can therefore be spit out and the mouth.
