Oil-pulling has become very popular on the web and in social media. Todd Caldecott is a medical herbalist and Auyervedic practitioner. Oil pulling is based on several Auyervedic therapies. I personally have never tried it. All previous information I've seen oil-pulling says to swish a mouthful of oil for 20 minutes. As a person with chronic TMJ-related problems, this did not sound like something I should be doing. After reading Todd's article, I might have to give this a try.
