I discovered OP while researching a natural remedy for sinus infection. I started with olive oil, three days later switched to sesame oil, then to VCO. While the sinus infection is in control, it is not by any means cured. I have also been using ACV in warm water with honey twice a day and neti pot 3 times a day. I wish I could say I have had the results some of you have had in eliminating tons of mucus. I will stick with it though.
My question is: I have read many blogs over the past week and don't see that anyone is talking about blending oils. I am thinking about mixing sesame with coconut. Is there any reason why I shouldn't?

Yesterday morning I discovered your website and tried oil pulling for the first time. While swishing I could feel some gritty bits in my mouth, like the feeling you get after the dentist has scraped off your plaque but it's still in your mouth. Afterwards I looked in the mirror and could see some tartar between my front teeth even after brushing. I haven't been to the dentist for a cleaning in a year so I had gotten some dark plaque build up in between my front bottom teeth and on the backs. I decided to floss and when I got to the bottom teeth there was a scraping sensation then the plaque came off! I was really stunned and just couldn't believe the oil had dissolved the plaque. My teeth also looked whiter. I thought I must be making it up, but then I came back to this site and read about other people's results and they confirmed mine. I oil pulled again this morning, using walnut and sesame seed oil which I have on hand, also I have a small mouth so only used 1 1/2 tsp. I didn't see as much of a difference, but the oil was definitely very whitish-yellow which I read means toxins are being removed. I have accessed other information on the site and am hoping your reccomendations will help me overcome pcos, estrogen dominance, low immune system and adrenal burnout, problems I have dealt with most of my life. If Ted has any information on building the immune system and healing adrenal burnout and glands in general I would love to hear more. I really like your site and I am also hoping the suggestions here will rid me of the need of spending $100s a month on other supplements. Thanks for sharing your secrets!

Another thing I was wondering... what healing crisis have others experienced with oil pulling? I got a really bad throat infection/cold and I rarely sick or feel ill for more than a day. Could this be the healing crisis for me? I was going to skip pulling this morning since I'm still sick, then decided to do it anyway... a word of caution... be careful when pulling with a cold. I made a mess when I had a sudden sneeze RIGHT before I was about to spit the oil out. DISGUSTING.
