So, I searched for a remedy and found oil pulling. I decided to use coconut oil because of the added benefit of the antibacterial and anti fungal properties. I’ve been oil pulling with coconut oil for three months now and not only have my teeth started to whiten again, but I have noticed a decrease in eczema symptoms (which is probably also related to the smoking).
What I do is add a few drops of clove oil and lavender to help fight off any bad stuff (including germs that cause colds) and then before I use pop it into my mouth, I rub it on my face. My skin is looking amazing too!!

I have been doing it with coconut oil for nearly one month, and while I do not have any miraculous things going on, there are a few major differences I noticed after a couple weeks of doing it, and if I miss a day, I notice things start to regress in some areas.
Being that I am a singer, the biggest change I have noticed, though I didn't realise until a few days ago it was related, was the regaining the lowest parts of my low register. I lost it some time ago due to allergies, occasionally I'd get glimpses of it, but it never quite came back for good.
Over the last few weeks, I noticed my voice deepening a lot. Now, I have a huge vocal range spanning close to 4 octaves, but I lost a good octave due to the allergies, maybe more than that. I still haven't regained the highest parts of my upper register, but we'll see if over time, oil pulling helps that as well.
It has certainly helped with gum inflammation, I had some inflamed areas, and they are now normal and my gums don't look red anymore either, but healthy and pink. :)
I got frequent sinus infections, and while I may get some sinus pressure every now and then, for the most part, my sinuses are pretty cleared up and I don't get massive sinus headaches anymore.
For me, those 3 things are enough to keep oil pulling, even if I never see any new benefits down the road.
God Bless ~Amy

Better But With Side Effects
Then few years back again I started it, and did it regularly 3 times a day, and that was the time got so many blisters in my mouth. I still continued with great difficulty , thinking it was okay, as it must be all the toxins coming out and they would go away, as Sesame oil is also good for treating ulcers anyway in India.
But then I could not even open my mouth it was so painful, that I had to visit a doctor and get medicines to get rid of the blisters. After that, I decided I will not try OP.
Now again I suddenly remembered it and as I am in my 50s with all the associated problems related to this age, I thought I would start again.
So I started with once a day early in the morning and slowly as the week progressed I have started doing it twice a day.
Till now I have had no problems and I really like doing it.I also have not noticed any positive changes in me, but that is okay, we have to give time to healing to see results. I am willing to wait. I feel I must have got too excited and had started doing 3 times previously, that is why too many toxins were released and caused the blister problem. This time I am more sensible, if I see some problem, I would reduce it to once a day, and see when I can re start it to twice a day, or even stop it for a while I have no doubt in my mind regarding its goodness. I have done it both with sesame oil as well as coconut oil. I don't like sun flower and olive oil. I would keep alternating between Coconut and sesame oil.
I will soon get back with my updates.
