I did the OP for the first time this morning with VCO, I could only keep it in my mouth for just a few minutes. I'd really like to work up to doing this for a much longer period of time because it felt so good after I was done at such a short time. But, I have crowns on most of my teeth. Should I be concerned about them possibly falling off if I do the OP? Any help with this will be very appreciated. Thank you EC for so much wonderful information.

I just found this website yesterday and it's wonderful. As you can imagine the information is overwhelming and soooo interesting. I saw a post from a woman who stated she had relief from a breast discharge due to a lump and that the OP helped. Today I've searched and searched and cannot find that post again. If anyone has any feedback on the subject I would greatly appreciate hearing from you.

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] hi, ive been oil pulling now for 5 days with pure coconut oil, finding this quite hard to do, I only last 5 minutes, when I spit it out, it is white but runny, when I do spit the oil out, straight away I start coughing, and bring up loads of rubbish of my chest, but have noticed my chest clear, and my face brighter and smoother, I just hope it is healing my gums, every day I check my gums, just to see if there is a little improvement, as the gaps from my gum to my teeth look terrible, nothing up to now, not sure when I will see any improvement, but I will let u know. ill keep oil pulling.Posted by Ed (Baltimore, Md) on 05/20/2011
I have been oil pulling for almot a week now and today I have noticed my stools are very light in color. Not quite white, but light tan. I understand how the gall bladder works, do I have a blockage in the ducts?Posted by Diamond (Cleveland, England) on 05/17/2011
for your feedback I will purchace a bottle of unrefined organic coconut oil tommorow, and let u know how I get on in a week. I just hope I can manage to keep the oil in my mouth expecially first thing in the morning.Posted by Kathie (Houston, United States) on 05/16/2011
I have read in several places that oil pulling helps to activate our bile. If this is true, what do you think about taking a psyllium drink before or after oil pulling to "grab" the bile in the bowel and further assist its removal?Posted by Diamond (Cleveland, England) on 05/16/2011
I am really confused about all these oils. What make do I get, plus does it say on the bottle refined or unrefined. organic or not, plus is it make that u fry your chips with or am I looking at a different oil, I am totally confused. Everyone keeps saying what oil they are using, sunflower, coconut etc, its for gingivitis... If I dont do something soon im gonna lose my 4 front teeth. I bought some sea salt today gonna use that everyday to see what happens. Any feed back please.Replied by Debbie

If you are oil pulling, you might also want to start scraping your tongue with an ayurvedic copper tongue scraper. These are sold at health food stores. They also help eliminate bacteria in the mouth.Replied by Alvina

I am researching oil pulling to see if it will help my teeth become firm again but I'm worried about the detoxing affect it will have on me. I am on bio identical hormone pellet injections as well as a nightly progesterone liquid that is placed under my toungue at bed time. Will oil pulling pull these hormones out of my system? They are very expensive to do and I can't afford to have the detox pull it out of my system. Also the progesterone liquid is sugar based and I can't rinse this out of my mouth for at least 1/2 hour. Could anyone help me with this? Thank you for any help in this matter.Posted by Tom (Austin, Tx) on 04/03/2011

[YEA] Oil pulling soothes my mouth tremendously---I've been traumatized by dental crowns and oil pulling was recommended by my dentist. I use organic extra virgin olive oil and have just held it in my mouth for 20 minutes. It felt so soothing to gums, teeth and jaw bone.
I repeated with another 20 minute session right afterward my first oil pull last night. Today an area on my gum at the site of a 2 crown procedure placed 3 weeks ago made a huge leap toward healed. Roots from a more recent crown has been calm most of the day--not a small feat since that root bothers me frequently.
Regarding getting rid of the oil after I use it.... I also do not want to cause septic problems. I spit the oil into a paper napkin and put it in the trash. Spitting it into a bag of trash that already has lots of tissues also works well--so there's no oily mess in the trash can.
