This channel started with a vision to create awesome content that not only made your life healthier and happier, but to create something captivating and unique that couldn't be missed. You've seen the girls in this segment at MindBodyGreen before; Jess Ainscough, Mel Ambrosini and I sit down and spell out the art of oil pulling.

Never heard of oil pulling? It's not anywhere near as dangerous as it sounds. We aren't drilling for oil, nor are we pulling oil out of our nostrils. Today Jess demonstrates how to use oil to "pull" out the bacteria and toxins found in the mouth. It's a great way to cleanse your body and it's really simple. It's also said to help with weight loss, gets the gut working better, helps clear brain fog, whitens teeth and brightens gums. All the cool kids are doing it, and you can see why! Take a look at the clip and be sure to watch out for more from the healthtalks series.
