I've had a nasty virus or flu. I was totally lacking energy like feeling I would just drop dead! I took some iron thinking it would help with my energy issues but then my spleen became enlarged. Very scary as I don't have health insurance. I read the article on Oil Pulling and remember trying it before and decided to give it a try! Used some VCO, was able to maintain the swishing for about 12 minutes and to my surprise the swelling was completely gone. Not only that but the rest of my abdominal area went flat. It's only been just once but I think this is a winner! By the way a chiropractor I went to yesterday gave me an adjustment with applied kinesiology and recommended high doses of Vit D, which really helped and got me over the energy issue. Here's to getting better!
