[YEA]  06/22/2008: SB from London, UK: "I've just started oil pulling with olive oil. It's only day 3 but I am just amazed .What I do is I oil pull for 20 or more minutes then I wash my mouth out and then brush my teeth with a mix of turmeric and bicarbonate soda (this I was already doing before I started oil pulling). After a few seconds juices start seeping out endlessly from inside my mouth, nose continously runs and eyes keep watering. I presume this is a detox and built up toxins seep out.Then I cough up masses of phlgem from my lungs. It's white, thick and this morning there must have been about half a glass or more . These effects come when I brush my teeth afterwards with the turmeric and bicarbonate of soda and not with the oil pulling alone nor was this happening when I was brushing my teeth with the turmeric mix before I started oil pulling. So this must be the effect of the two combined. Thanks earth clinic because I can breathe much more easily now."


[YEA]  02/25/2008: Marci from Tucson, Arizona: "OP First Time--Surprising Results. While doing a little research on activated charcoal, happened upon your OP info today 2-25-08. Thought I was getting the flu today due to appetite loss and diarrhea. Took 2 charcoal capsules which cured the latter, then found your articles and tried with 1 tbsp. olive oil. Since I had slight gag reflex initially, I calmed myself and was careful about rinsing my mouth after spitting out (tea tree oil w/mouthwash then brushing). My headache and stomachache are gone and my mouth has never felt so clean. My mood is definitely lighter and could it be that my teeth look brighter?? Speaking of which, would you please clarify the effect on tooth enamel? My teeth are rather porous, stain easily and the dentist says the enamel is eroding. Many thanks for all your hard work and inspiration. /M"


[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  02/09/2008: Lis from New Orleans, LA: "I decided to try oil pulling to help alleviate my chronic sinusitis and overall tiredness. I use evoo [extra virgin olive oil] because it's what I have on hand. I've only tried this three times so far and I followed the directions on earthclinic exactly. Here's my situation: the oil never turns white. Even after twenty minutes of slowly pulling, sucking, chomping, swishing, etc., the oil is still yellow. I've read and reread the directions and follow them explicitly. Maybe I should try a different oil. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!"

09/26/2008: Jacy from Sydney, Australia replies: "In response to Extra Virgin Olive Oil not turning white, I too had the same issue when I first tried OP. I only had the olive oil on hand when I first decided to try this. I even added the Peppermint Oil and a drop of Tea Tree Oil like Ted said, and ensured I was thoroughly hydrated before (the more hydrated the more saliva you produce) - it was still yellowish.

The next day I decided to buy some Cold pressed Sesame Oil - the result? White liquid after pulling for only 10 minutes. My belief is that the deeper green/yellow colour of Olive Oil is why it does not turn white so easily. The Sesame Oil is naturally more lighter in colour, and more viscous. If you still want to use the Olive Oil, use a little less than 1 TBS, and add some peppermint or tea tree oil to boost the anti-bacterial properties of your oil.

I feel the Sesame Oil is MUCH better, and my teeth feel amazingly clean and white. Ensure that you cleanse your mouth thoroughly with Baking Soda and salt mixed with water. Try and eliminate other toxins, by using baking soda as toothpaste, and baking soda and vinegar to wash your hair (do a "NO POO" search on google and you'll see the benefits of eliminating shampoo from your cleaning routine).

It's amazing how many harmful chemicals we use on a day to day basis both in and on our bodies. I am in the process of losing a lot of weight, and it makes sense to help your body to not only dump the fat, but other toxins as well. Dry brushing and epsom salt baths are also boosting my weight-loss. Hope that helps."


[YEA]  02/06/2008: Tina Fina from San Juan, Puerto Rico: "Hola! My name is Tina. I've been a fashion model for years, a smoking fashion model, that has quit drinking alcohol but hasn't dropped the cigs. I did the oil pulling for the first time with E.Virgin Olive Oil and whoever came up with this technique is a genius! I did it for 20 minutes no problem (tasted the nicotine and the toxins emerging) It is imposible to take one drag off a cig all day. I keep tasting the nicotine coming out! I think i've found the ultimate solution! Can't wait to share it with my family and friends ! Thank you ARYUVEDA and DEIRDRE! GREAT SITE *MY FAVORITE! T."


[YEA]  01/19/2008: Barbara from El Paso, Texas: "All I can say is Wow! Oil Pulling really works. My dentist wanted to whiten my teeth,to the tune of $600.00, I refused and told him I had just started oil pulling (he didn't know what it was) and it is suppose to whiten teeth so I would wait to see the results. My husband and I were both amazed. After only 3 days my teeth had whitened at least 4 shades, and my tongue was pink and healthy, the coating disappeared! Along with the ACV treatment for my rheu. arthritis and the oil pull, I feel better and have more energy than I've had in years. When I went to the store to buy the oil I bought Sesame oil (could only find the toasted)and Organic Virgin Olive Oil. When I tried to open the sesame oil it flew out of my hands and broke all over my kitchen floor. So, I used the olive oil and have had all these wonderful results from using it. I am a "new person" thanks to this wonderful site!! Thank you!"


[YEA]  01/05/2008: Antoinette from Raleigh, NC: "WOW! I was just reading about the oil pulling. I have severe sinus problems, as well as a host of other ailments, which I will relate at another time. I woke up this morning severely congested, with thick green mucuous. I searched the computer under sinus treatments and found this website. I decided to try it although I was scared. I didnt have sesame or sunflower oil, I only had extra virgin olive oil, so I tried it. I just tried right now for the first time. Within 2 minutes....yes!! 2 minutes! my nose opened up, and I could breathe!!! I started feeling more alert in my mind, and I was so shocked. I just spit out the solution a few minutes ago...... and I brushed my teeth, and Im going to drink the 2 to 3 glasses of water. I will post again soon. I will do it again tonight. Thanks!!!"


09/01/2007: MIMI from SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS: "I TRIED THIS OP TODAY. BUT FOUND IT DIFFICULT TO DO IT FOR THE MINIMAL TIME OF 10 MIN. THE URGE TO SPIT WAS SO GREAT BECAUSE OF ALL THE SALIVA BUILD UP. ANYONE ELSE HAVE THIS PROBLEM, IF SO WHAT WAS THE SOLUTION? I WANT TO CONTINUE THIS AND RECIEVE ALL THE BENEFITS. EVEN THOUGH I WAS ONLY TO HOLD IT IN FOR 6 MINS., I IMMEDIATELY BEGAN TO FELL MY SINUSES DRAINING!! HOW WEIRD BECAUSE I DON'T EVEN REALLY HAVE SINUS PROBLEMS!!! ALSO I HAD A TOOTH ACHE LAST NITE BECAUSE I HAVE AN ABCESS AND NEED A ROOT CANAL. WELL IT FELT SOOO MUCH BETTER AFTERWARDS. I HAD BEEN GIVEN PENACILLIN AND TOOK IT FOR 10 DAYS WITHOUT MUCH RELIEF. I DID THIS OP 10 DAYS AFTER I FINISHED MY ANTIBIOTIC THERAPY SO I AM SURE THE RELIEF IS NOT FROM THAT! I USED OLIVE OIL BUT AFTER THIS POSTING I AM GOING TO GET THE SUNFLOWER OIL !!!!!!THANK YOU"


[YEA]  07/27/2007: Arlene from Findlay, Ohio: "I have been doing oil pulling since June 1st. I have used extra virgin olive oil but today bought some sunflower oil to try. I cleaned my mouth before and after oil pulling but read today that you do it after. Anyway, I have lost 12 pounds so metabolism has increased. My mouth feels healthier. I have more energy. I plan to do it for a very long time. Let me know about cleaning mouth before and after. Thanks"


[YEA]  07/16/2007: Arlene from Findlay, OH: "I have been using extra virgin olive oil. My psychologist told me about this after studying Native American history. I am bipolar. I have noticed increased metabolism, teeth tightening, weight loss of 12 pounds since starting the oil pulling June 1, 2007. I have so much more energy, teeth seem to be whitening. A clearer mind. The weight loss has been the best for me."


[YEA]  07/08/2007: Kimberly from Mineral, Virginia: "Hello Everyone, I hadn't intended to responded this soon, but I am so amazed at how well the OP is going that I just had to give my 2 cents. I decided to try OP because I am desperate to feel better. I am 45 years old and am sick of feeling sick all the time. I stumbled on to the web sight reading about ACV and looked at the OP while I was here. I decided to give it a try as I had extra virgin olive light oil in my kitchen at the moment and a number of reader said they had used different oils with success. I did decide I would order the cold pressed seseame oil as soon as I could though. Well, I've been oil pulling now for a week and here is what I have to report. My teeth look fantastic! I have NEVER had white teeth even as a kid!! And my face, I have had oily skin and large pores with blackheads sense I was a kid as well. I'm talking 10 year old kid! Well last night I went to do my normal, you know express the pores so they don't look so large and OMG they were so small, it was unbelievable!! I could not really find anything to express. Then I realize that my face had not been as oily has it had been in the past and I actually had two dry patches on my chin which in the past has only happened when I was pregnant with my two girls and that was 25 years ago!

And now for my hair. I have always, again sense I was a kid oily hair. My hair looks great!! It is soft and shiny and it doesn't look like an oil pit 24 hours after the last washing. It is wonderful to have my hair looking nice the entire time between washings!! I can't wait to see what other benefits come out of OP!! You have one sold customer here! I will check back later on and let you all know what else has happened. Oh yeah, one more thing, I had some generalized tooth pain that I could not pin point on one side of my right upper jaw when I started, well after the second session of OP, the tooth pain was all but gone! This is GREAT!! Kim"


[YEA]  07/03/2007: Jackie from Grand Rapids, Minnesota: "hi, i am a newby here, just found out about oil pulling yesterday. Based on all the positive reviews, i just had to try it. I used ordinary budget brand olive oil i had on hand. I was able to do it for 20 minutes without any problem. last night and this morning. This morning, i had hardly any undereye puffiness. usually i have quite a lot and my eyes look sore and tired and sad looking and tear up quite a bit. today my eyes were bright and as the day has gone by i think i can see better.Also noticed was a heightened sense of well being. It's not imagination, i look younger feel and look bright and alert. This is something i plan on continuing forever. Almost forgot, my teeth look whiter, already. I purchased Hain sunflower oil today, organic apple cider vinegar and local raw honey for under 20 bucks.Took some ACV this afternoon. went for a long walk after supper, usually my fingers swell, none tonight and the pain in my hands is reduced.( i don't know why my fingers swell when i walk in the woods, but it's happened since i was in my 20's, now 60.) I can't thank you enough. Sincerely Jackie"


[YEA]  04/04/2007: Denise from Pembroke, GA: "I have severe arthritis and started using ACV & molasses and noticed better energy. This morning, I had real difficulty getting out of bed and decided I'd try oil pulling. To say I was amazed with the results is putting it lightly. After suffering with it for 25 years, the pain in my back is now gone! I am stunned! I used cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil - have done it twice today so far. Also, the mucous is coming up. Will do another one tonight. Thank God for this site. THANK YOU!!!!"


02/04/2007: Gracie from Pasadena, CA: "I went to health food store twice yesterday looking for correct oil; the only cold pressed oil that they had was olive. I could hardly sleep with excitement of my first oil pulling... After 2 minutes I had to spit out oil because of mucus in throat. Yellow. Again for maybe 3 minutes I swished oil with mucus in throat, spitting out white substance. Another try for about 2-3 minutes, I spit out white substance and coughted up 2 globs of white thick mucus. Dry heaving and wanting to vomit over toilet bowl. I could have swished the oil around for the full time but for the draining mucus in throat. It was not unpleasant having the oil in my mouth at all as I was using a nice fine olive oil. I'll continue tomorrow morning and trust that with time I'll be able to manage 20 minutes. In the meantime, I am most grateful for this information."


[YEA]  01/26/2007: Tunesia from Louisville, KY: "I''ve been oil pulling now for 3 mths with olive oil with amazing results. I used to wake up with joint soreness every morning.That ended after the first day for me and I also noticed that I sleep great and can get right out of the bed and function in the morning. my teeth are whiter, and skin is clear. I never had a problem with arthritis in my hands but pulling brought it to the surface and got rid of it I ached for two weeks and it's gone and hasn't been back. I quickly advised my family to start and now 4 of them are with favorable results. It definately does get worse before getting better, but stick with it. My Aunt is in her worsening stages of her ailments but looking forward to getting better."


[YEA]  09/13/2006: David from Phoenix, AZ: "Oil pulling cured Brain Fog, Produced Whiter Teeth, Face used to be wrinkled around eyes but now amazingly smooth. I use expeller pressed organic virgin olive oil. I do a series of 3 flushes in the morning lasting seven minutes each and repeat the process just before bedtime. I have read reports that the mouth starts to re-absorb the very toxic used oil when prolonging (the oil pull) with the first tbs of oil for 15-20 minutes. Take the extra effort and expense and at least renew oil at the halfway point. I'm hooked for life. Combine this with an epsom/ olive oil liver flush for even better results. I removed over 2,500 bilium stones. (Confirmed by a lab)"
