Indian Secrets

Ayurvedic medicine (Ancient Indian medicine) shows that sesame oil was regarded as God’s gift. Sesame seeds have been regarded as a nutritional goldmine due to the fact that it contains essential protein that is not found in other vegetable proteins.

In the Sushruta Samhita, a Sanskrit text of Ayurvedic medicine, sesame oil is deemed the “most commendable” of oils and recommended by wounds, burns and bites from animals or insects. It recommends the topical application of sesame oil with massage for general health. Medicated oils are prepared by prolonged cooking of sesame oil with a pasty mass of herbs and a decoction of herbs in water. Ayurvedic physicians use sesame oil to treat various chronic conditions, including liver disorders, diabetes and migraines.

Ayurveda recommends a daily massage (Abhyanga) with sesame oil to remove stress and relax the body. Starting your day with an oil massage is known to increase lustre and skin tone considerably. Sesame oil lubricates the skin, cleanses the pores, and penetrates the lipid barrier, replacing tired, toxin clogged lipid cells with fresh lipid cells.

Eary Ayurvedic text, the Charaka Samhita which goes back to more than 1500 years recommends Oil pulling as a an effective method to improve oral health care and 30 other systematic diseases ranging from headache, migraine to diabetes and asthma. Oil pulling is basically a process that involves the swishing of sesame oil in your mouth for 10-15 minutes every day.

Steps to do Oil Pulling: 1. Measure 1 tablespoon of Anandham Sesame Oil and put the oil in your mouth. It is important to note that oil pulling should be done before you have consumed any food or drink in the day and also before you have brushed your teeth

2. Swirl the oil around your mouth for 10-15 minutes. The oil will mix with the saliva, absorbing and “pulling” toxins from your mouth. As the oil is swished around the mouth, teeth, gums and tongue, the oil will continue to absorb toxins, usually turning somewhat viscous and milky

3. Spit out the oil and rinse your mouth out thoroughly with warm water. Its important to spit out the oil when it starts to feel thick. This usually takes anywhere between 15 - 20 minutes

4. Develop a routine and do this every morning as soon you wake up

Regular oil pulling leads to better oral health, removes bad breath and also leads to all around holistic health improvements. The anti-oxidant sessamol is shown to halt the absorption of bad cholesterol in the liver.
