Hi Ted, I started OP last week with organic sunflower oil. The first time I did it, I felt great. But since then, I have felt very sick. My allergies/sinuses seem worse and my head is in a bad fog. I have a lot of allergies, but they have been fine prior to the OP. Also, my throat has been sore since I began. Are these side effects normal? Should I try using different oil? I has been almost a week that I have felt continually sick. Thanks!
Hi. I have been oil pulling for a week with sunflower oil. I am type A blood. Is fever a usual side effect? I've had a low grade (99-100) fever off and on for a few days. I've noticed in general after oil pulling in the AM I get dizzy and really hungry and then a burst of energy in the afternoon and then unbelievable sleepiness sets in. Anxiety levels are heightened as well. Anyone else? Let's commiserate.

I stumble upon this website, and found interested Oil pulling so decided to try it, I have been OP for the past 4 days, however I have developed a really bad headache its mostly preassure on my forehead, I was wondering if this is part of the detox process, has anyone else experience these symptoms, I'm not sure if I should keep doing it. I am also doing the 3tbls of ACV in my water daily and 1tblsp fo Blackstrap Molasses daily, Since all this I'm not feeling that great not sure if this is for me or if this is part of the process. Thanks!
This is for Ted in Bangok, can you reply as to why when I did the OP I had such severe upper mid back and chest pain I was in tears and the canker sores are worse I had to stop using this. Now the bad taste in my mouth is awful over 1 week I have stopped but the odor and bad taste are terrible along with watering of the mouth and nausea.
I would like you to tell me how to use sodium perborate/ magnesium chloride or the pennywoth and where I can buy them. Please reply.
I asked my mother to follow oil pulling since she felt burning in stomach and head-ache. She used Sesame oil for oil pulling. She is feeling stomach pain. What's the reason? I am bit worried.
I just used sesame oil for 5 min. My mouth got too full to swish anymore so I spit it out. As I ran my tongue around my mouth I noticed a blister of some kind had formed inside my cheek. I don't have any known allergies so is this toxins reacting to the oil?
I've been oil-pulling with sunflower oil for three weeks and then changed to olive oil. Both oils have made my mouth really dry. I don't understand how oil pulling has dried my mouth out so much! The insides of my cheeks stick to my teeth. I've never had this problem before. I am drinking loads of water, about 2 litres a day in constant sips, but it doesn't help. It is less noticeable with the olive oil, and I had a two-day break when I switched oils, but it's still far from 'normal'. Why is this happening? Should I continue, or not? I'm getting a rough texture inside my cheeks at the front, too
Better But With Side Effects
I started oil pulling with sesame oil about a week ago for red/receding gums. The OP has made a huge difference in the health of my gums and I actually saw some gum recession fill in. However, all my molars have fillings (not mercury), and I had a root canal in my upper left molar that was not crowned.
I have noticed that the molars have become yellowish with some dark spots appear through them - as if the enamel is wearing off? On the root canal tooth, the surface is rough and it has white spots showing through.
Has anyone experienced this? Based on this, I have stopped pulling but would like to find a way to continue b/c of the benefits to my gums.
Am into my third day of OP using EVCO. Experiencing mild aching in my feet and legs. Anyone else had this reaction?
I have been oil pulling for three weeks and this morning I had a dull pain in my lower right abdomen when I bent over. It is also tender to touch. I don't think it's appendicitis, although I could be wrong. My question to you is should I keep oil pulling and see if it heals on it's own? Thank you.

Better But With Side Effects
I did pull olive olive oil for a month and now I can sleep well, my nasal passage are clean and no need to wake up at midnight because I can't breath. Is gone. Wait 2 weeks to start again.
Now I tried First day Surprise!! Blood is coming out from the back of my throat and feeling sore and swollen throat . Stopped and wait 1 week. Again, blood but more, sore feeling. Have a appointment to see the Doctor tomorrow, hope is not cancer. Will post again after the doctor.

I tried oil pulling twice for a sinus infection - it did absolutely nothing aside from giving me a horrible case of acid reflux for days - please beware of this therapy - it can have dire side effects!! I wish I had never tried this horrid thing!
I've been oil pulling with Coconut Oil for about 10 days now & was recommended this by an instructor in a holistic health class I'm taking. I didn't do a lot of research before I began, which could be a mistake. I was told it was a general detox, which I've done before so I'm familiar with feeling slightly under the weather, tired, etc.
However, about a week into the oil pulling I woke to find my top left gum tissue around the molar really swollen and painful. It was so painful it woke me out of sleep. Also, my lymph node on the the same side is very swollen and painful to light touch. My cheek on the same side is tender to the touch...I assume sinus. My gum in the area I described is still swollen and painful and so is the lymph node...it's been four days!! and am generally feeling under the weather.
I was told that my body is just getting worse before it gets better, but I'm tempted to stop due to the discomfort level. I do have amalgam fillings in the area that is swollen...could this be the problem? Should I stop the oil pulling? Or is there a modified way to continue?
On one good note, my skin has never looked better! It's the dead of winter in Wisconsin which usually causes severe dry skin for me, but my skin is softer than it's ever been and I barely have to put on moisturizers!
Looking forward to hearding your feedback,
I need suggestions for bad OP detox
I have been trying OP with cold pressed coconut oil for three days and the results have been fantastic--decreased hunger and amazingly increased energy. My mother has several things wrong with her-diabetes, and arthritis being the primary ones. She has tried the OP for two days and her arthritis has flamed up so bad that she can hardly get out of bed. Is there anything that she can do to speed up this detox? Anything that will help ease her some.
Also, I wanted her to try the ACV first but she is allergic to apples--is there anything else that has the same effects, or has anyone else been allergic to apples and gotten around it to use the ACV. This web site is wonderful and I hope I posted this in the right place."
