Long-term use of vitamin E supplements may help protect against amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (or ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease), according to a recent report from the American Journal of Epidemiology.

Vitamin E. Vitamin E has attracted significant attention from ALS researchers as a result of its antioxidant properties. Vitamin E protects cell membranes against a process known as lipid peroxidation (Cameron A et al 2002). Lipid peroxidation is the breakdown of the cell membrane, which could play a role in degenerative diseases such as ALS. A recent study in humans indicated that vitamin E can help prevent ALS because of its antioxidant properties (Ascherio a. This simple method makes it possible to effectively treat the most varied diseases, in some cases enabling one to avoid surgical intervention and the taking of medications that can have harmful side effects.

The exciting factor of this Sunflower or Seasme healing method is its simplicity. It consists of swishing or pulling cold-pressed oil in the mouth( Sunflower or Seasme, Pl. note you don't need to go for organic oils only, A normal refined sunflower oil bought from any supermarket proven to be effective in many people). The healing process is accomplished by the human organism on its own. In this way it is possible to heal cells, tissue and all organs simultaneously, the body itself gets rid of toxic waste without disturbing the healthy microflora. Dr. Karach says human beings are living only half their life span. They could potentially live healthy to be 140 to 150 years old.

Oil-soluble vitamins, A, C, D, and E are antioxidants that protect and prevent the decaying process and help maintain the integral functioning of cell membranes. That's why, many people are ingesting vitamin E pills to stem `aging' (oxidation).

Dr. (med.) Karach said the Sunflower or Seasme heals totally “head-aches, bronchitis, tooth pain, thrombosis, eczema, ulcers and diseases of stomach, intestines, heart, blood, kidney, liver, lungs and women’s diseases. It heals diseases of nerves, paralysis, and encephalitis. It prevents the growth of malignant tumors, cuts and heals them. Chronic sleeplessness is cured.”

Method - Step by Step


First thing in the morning on an empty stomach and before drinking any liquids (including water), pour exactly one tablespoon of sunflower or sesame oil (or whatever oil you have chosen) into your mouth. We don't recommend doing this process at any other time. Children can also do this with less quantity of oil provided they have control and practice not to swallow the oil. (Selection and Questions on choosing the right oil Read Here )

Step 2:

Swish the oil around in your mouth without swallowing it. Move it around in your mouth and through your teeth, as if it was mouthwash (don't tilt your head back to gargle though). You'll find that the oil will start to get watery as your saliva mixes with it. Keep swishing. If your jaw muscles get sore while swishing, you're putting too much into it. Relax your jaw muscles and use your tongue to help move the liquid around the inside of your mouth. When you do this correctly, you'll feel very comfortable. Pretty soon.
There is no right way or wrong way to swish and pull oil. Don't focus on doing it right. Do it with very natural movement. Do this gently, not vigorously, in a relaxed way for about 20 minutes.
If you have the unbearable urge to swallow and If it becomes too unpleasant, spit out and try again. It can be a bit unpleasant at first when you’re not used to it, but soon won’t be bothersome at all, just like brushing your teeth.
When the oil has become saturated with the toxins it has pulled out, it may become whitish and a thinner, milky consistency, depending on the type of oil used. Each time you oil pull, it can take a different amount of time to get to that point, so 20 minutes is a general rule of thumb, but you can experiment with this.
If you spit out before 20 minutes. start again, the process is to make the oil swish enough time in your mouth so that it becomes a white thick substance which is a indication of process completion.


As the end of the oil pulling session approaches, Spit the oil out, then rinse the mouth with warm salt water. ( Just use normal table salt). Salt water rinsing isn’t absolutely necessary, but is very helpful as an antimicrobial and to soothe any inflammation and proven to be effective in rinsing out any toxins which may be left out in the mouth.
You can do the oil pulling every morning if you like, or several times a week. Because oil pulling method can be detoxifying, you might want to take a break sometimes. One immediate benefit everyone gets is, whiter teeth, clean mouth . There’s no rule about frequency - judge according to your own experience.
Pl. understand that this process works better in the morning. Don't try to do this any time of the day. If for some reason it is absolutely not possible for you to practice this method in the morning, you can do this on an empty stomach at any time of the day. Empty stomach means the food is digested completely. Ideally after three or four hours of you taking any food. ( Lot depends on the food you are eating).


Re: vitamin E and familial ALS

This is an interesting technique to use sunflower oil to take your vitamin E. About 10 +/- years ago a very large Harvard study identified that people who had been taking vitamin E regularly had a much lower incidence of ALS than those who didn't. I have now been taking it twice daily since the study came out and always with fats. My progress has been very slow but I doubt it attributable to the vitamin E but I continue to take it just in case it is helping.

Of more relevance than than helping existing PALS, is its potential to help those who have not yet contracted ALS. Notably, people who are at risk of getting familial ALS. I have long recommended those at risk of this should be taking vitamin E daily.

BTW Nichola, I spent a wonderful year in 1976 working in Crna Gora. Loved the people and the landscape.
