Just found your site a couple nights ago and have been on it for hours each day since. Thank you for providing this great resource!
I tried OP this morning while in the shower. I started with 1tsp of Coconut Oil as I thought 1 Tbsp. Would definitely make me gag. It was a solid and I knew it would take some time to melt, but within a second or two I was gagging and involuntarily spit it out in the sink. I didn't want to throw up so I waited a few minutes until I had myself under control and tried 1/4 tsp. It took all the self control I could muster to not vomit, but after 30 seconds it was melted and I started to swish. It was much easier once it was melted and just felt like I had saliva in my mouth. After 20 mins though, I had so much in my mouth, I wonder how I'm ever going to keep more than 1/2 tsp in my mouth (I plan on trying to work my way up).
What would be a good way to melt the oil first as I think that was what was causing me to gag. Any other suggestions on dealing with volume?

Better But With Side Effects
I got an email from a wise old lady who I respect suggesting I may be able to help my sinusitus with oil pulling with coconut oil. Having suffered from this for about 6 years (started when I moved into a mouldy house.. But this may just have been a trigger or coincidence) I was pretty desperate. My instincts told me this could be the one so I hooned down to the health food shop and bought some coconut oil (it wasn't the brand my wise friend had recommended but it was all they had.
I took it straight away (about 5pm) .. Immediately I experienced mucous cascading into my mouth and a few minutes later I vomited. I perserved with more oil and did the 20 minutes feeling very very nauseous. That night I spent a very very disturbed night of mucous action (eek gross.. ended up blowing my nose into an old sarong and spitting into a bucket all night). after 3 more treatments I had the most amazing clearing of my sinuses in my forehead. 3 days later I was full of severe joint aches and blocked ears to the extent that I took to my bed thinking I had malaria (which I had had 3 months prior to this).
I then had blocked ears (like I was losing altitude in a plane) for the next 3 weeks but lessening mucous action.
Now a month later.. Better than ever before.. not cured but I think I will be as I continue.
Other good side effects seem to be increased energy levels. Downside was when I ran out of this brand of oil and tried some others while travelling and they were gross (tasted rancid). Hasn't as yet made my teeth whiter but I do live in hope.
Another huge plus was finding this site when researching oil pulling. WOW.. You guys rock! Thanks!

low energy: I've been oil pulling with extra virgin Coconut Oil for about 4 days now. I am sleeping through the night, I have an easier time getting out of bed in the morning. My skin is glowing so much and the little fine lines are disappearing. I still have dark circles under my eyes though. Also, I am having more bowel movements.
