[SIDE EFFECTS] Two weeeks ago I commenced using coconut oil for 'oil pulling' and I'm just wondering if the bodily symptoms experienced since are related. After the first two days I contracted gastro-enteritis for a week (so did my 7yr old daugter who is not 'oil pulling'), so I'm thinking that was just bad luck.
On recovery I noticed a sore gland on left side of throat, so I reccommenced Oil Pulling.
Next day I woke with a dull bruised feeling on my left side above the hip and below the bottom rib. As the day wore on it got worse (never sharp). Sore gland still aching. Had two panadol mid afternoon and late that night couldnt sleep or lay on my side because of the discomfort. Wondered about likely hernia. So I got up in the middle of the night and opened up 'Earthclinic' for some self diagnosis. The pain in my side seemed to be in the Gallbladder/ kidney vicinity so after taking 2 more panadol I blended up some apples and mixed a glass with 2 tblspoons of ACV..... Slept very well and woke without pain. Have had same tonic once more today as well as baking soda H20 drinks (2).
Tonight gland still sore and dull side discomfort still present.
What do you think?
Will get GP to check me out tomorrow. Plan to keep going with alkalizing.

[YEA] I started pulling with olive oil on May 5th and didn't like a rancid background taste so I bought coconut oil and like it much better. I have to briefly warm it up to melt it and swoosh about 1 Tbls during my shower in the morning. I have already noticed a few changes in just this short period of time. Will get back with more details soon!Replied by Ana

[YEA] I have suffered with very sensitive teeth for years and avoided going to the dentist for fear of the pain that comes with a checkup and clean. That is until I started oil pulling with coconut oil. After a week of oil pulling for approx 10 mins a day 5 days a week all sensitivity was gone and I stopped using sensitive toothpaste. My teeth became whiter and most soreness went, I just had a very slight tenderness around the my bottom 4 front teeth. So I went to the dentist expecting cavities and was told that there were none and I was doing a good job cleaning my teeth despite avoiding the dentist for many years. After having a proper clean my teeth look and feel amazing. The oil pulling sorted out my sensitivity and improved my gums and oral health so that I didn't suffer pain or feel embarrassment at the dentist. I will continue to oil pull so that sensitivity doesn't return. Thanks again earth clinicPosted by Sue M. (Worden, Il, Usa) on 12/08/2012
There was an excellent article on Dr. Mercola's website about VCO and oil pulling, so I'd thought I'd post for everyone to read:Posted by Suzy (Eugene, Oregon) on 11/28/2012
I decided to try oil pulling as I have always had very yellow teeth. I am using coconut oil that I have warmed slightly. My experience was, as I was swishing and pulling I was salivating like crazy... The volume of the liquid increased to the point I had to spit and spit alot! Since I am obviously spitting out oil as well as saliva... Should I add more oil and start over? I managed about 10 minutes for the first time, but I am pretty sure the ratio of oil to saliva had shifted.Replied by Mmsg
