I've tried several kinds of oil for oil pulling and I find ____ olive oil to be the best by far. My dentist is impressed with the results too... as my gums have reattached to my teeth. I use 1 tsp twice a day for 15 mins. When I first wake up and right before bed. It doesn't taste very good at first but after 15 mins. by mouth feels very clean. It's very soothing for a tooth ache or cut inside your mouth too.
BETTER BUT WITH SIDE EFFECTS
I have been doing the OP for a week today now with cold pressed olive oil --I noticed from day one so much flem coming from my throat as the days went on I now have lots of flem -a migraine which I always get and want to get rid of due to hormonal changes and a nausous stomach-- my tongue is coated with thick white stuff and my v----- smells exactly the same as my underarms like a metal weird smell--I know I am detoxing right now through my pores and all areas of my body= also my glands in my throat are swollen and my neck seems stiff--I have detoxed other ways before and have delt with the same symptoms--wow I say this is so cool --with me symptoms I have seem to get worse as the healing process takes action---people who do it for a couple of weeks and give up should just change oil and keep going--natural health take a longer time for healing to happen but when it does happen it is permanant unless you go back to the lifestyle that cause you feel crappy to begin with..good luck to all who cherish their bodies enough to heal----sydy

Oil Pulling Cured My Gingivitis. About 1 month ago I began experiencing very horrible breath. So I began to search for remedies that were 'natural' as opposed to prescribed medication. I discovered your site and started oil pulling about a month ago, using cold pressed olive oil (couldn't find any other cold pressed oil). I used 1 tablespoon each morning before eating breakfast and before retiring to bed at night. After a few days I began to see my teeth whiten and my gums become very pink and healthy looking. A gap between 2 teeth closed up totally so that now there is no 'gap' anymore! Last week I visited the dentist where I was told that my gums and teeth were so healthy and clean that I can visit the dentist once per year instead of every six months! My previous visit to the dentist 6 months ago was not so good....I was told I had gingivitis and that my gums were receding from my teeth, my gums were also very dark purple instead of bright pink. So thank you Earth Clinic, with oil pulling my oral health was restored beyond my expectations! Oil pulling did so much for me, I will continue as long as I have life. I told a colleague about it and she too has started oil pulling! However I still wait for my bad breath to clear up. Any suggestions for elimination of this chronic bad breath?

Yesterday, I was in excrutiating pain from a tooth I broke and had filled about a month ago. Could'nt get an appointment for a week at the dentist. I looked online for anything that could possibly help with the pain (strong painkilers did not even touch it).
I tried raw garlic, garlic mouthwash, cold water with salt (hit the roof with pain) warm water with salt (hit the roof again) nothing worked. I had read about oil pulling but discounted it as I needed an instant fix. At 3.00 am (3 hours before going to work) after 16 hours of constant pain,In desperation I decided to give OP a try with extra virgin olive oil. Five minutes after swilling and cleaning my teeth I was asleep.
I woke up with no pain at all. Another thing I noticed during the day was when I had a drink of water from the cooler, although I did feel a slight throbbing after, there was no sensitivity to the cold water at all. (I have always had sensitive teeth even before the toothache)
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. CONVERTED. I am going to carry on with OP and see what long term benefits I get.
Also I have not had a cigarette today yet and its nearly bedtime ! not even thought about it until now.
I tried oil pulling with olive oil yesterday and then went to work. I was hoping it would clear my head. I had increased confusion, and trouble with word finding. This is not unusual for me, but yesterday it was worse than ever. I also consumed EVCO for breakfast on my eggs. Would this have caused the mental confusion and memory loss? There was also no change in my energy level. Is this a temporary side effect or are these remedies not for me? I would appreciate your input.

First time Oil Puller: I just finished slowly swirling two capfuls of Extra Virgin Olive Oil over my tongue, gums, and teeth as described for the oil-pulling procecss. After 21 minutes I spat it out and rinsed with plain water. The oil was foamy, but was still golden in color.
After about 3 minutes of slow swirling, the oil took on an extremely bitter taste, however I kept swirling for 18 more minutes. Have any of you had that experience with the bitterness?
Initial response: The bitter taste left my mouth when I rinsed with water. My teeth and gums look the same, however, I have a large portion of my tongue that is black in color. So far, no changes to the black portion, but the normally whitish coating on the pink part is gone. My tongue definitely looks pink(er) and healthy.
I plan to keep at it and see what other benefits I experience. I am so glad I found this fabulous website!
I tried oil pulling with 1 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil and I felt very good after it. I will continue to do it till my teeth become white. thanks. You have a great webside. This is one of my favourite sites. God bless you.
NAY. I was oil pulling with 1 tbsp EVOO for 20 minutes for about two weeks. I stopped because I had litterally no results. The oil remained yellow, there was no foam and no mucus was expelled (the primary reason for wanting to try this procedure). I may be doing something wrong, I know it's not the product. A woman in my office is using the same product and has gotten all the classic results. I was very careful to follow all the instructions. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? I could use some help.

Olive Oil Pulling Remedy improves my tooth and jaw discomfort within hours.
I discovered this site a few hours ago seeking a remedy for my white coated tongue. As today is a public holiday in Cyprus I could not rush out and get some coconut oil which is what I wanted to do after reading the recommendations. So I opened the cupboard and took a shot of olive oil instead. (No mediterranean kitchen is ever without olive oil!). I managed to swish for about 12 minutes before I felt as if I was going to choke. I spat it out and rinsed thoroughly.
That was about 3 hours ago. I am so excited that I had to come back to the site to share my results. The sensitive tooth and jaw pain I have had for months, has almost completely disappeared. I coughed up a lot of phlegm and now feel so much clearer in my ears and throat.
I am stunned! I thought I was familiar with most of the well-known natural remedies but this is a new (and extremely effective) one on me. Thanks so much Earth Clinic and all it's users. I'm converted!
I tried oil pulling with olive oil for the first time this morning for 15 minutes. I chose olive oil as it was recommended for type A blood the site. The olive oil I used was cold pressed EV w/ low acidity. After 15 minutes, I spit out but didn't notice any appreciable difference in colour as others have written about. I'll try it for a week and report my observations.
I have been doing the oil pulling with Olive Oil for about 2 weeks, 1 tbl. for 20 minutes once a day. The oil is still yellow and while it seems lighter than it is in the bottle, I feel it looks the same as if you whipped (emulsified) it. I have had no mucous evacuation or any other positive signs other than my teeth are very smooth like when I have them cleaned. Am I doing something wrong or not doing something right?

hi everyone came about your site by accident. Began op about 5 days ago. I used ordinary extra virgin olive oil pulled for 20mins in the morning yet oil still remained yellow when i spat out yet the next morning when i woke up the first thing i noticed was i felt energised, a totally different person who is normally lethargic upon waking. I had a lot more mental clarity . On the second day my cracked heels which were sore every time i walked were healed and soft. My hair which was dry felt softer and my skin feels softer too. I have stopped coughing as well. I have suffered from bad chest infections since i was a child yet op has stopped the wheeze and the cough dead in its tracks. Every morning - wake now i feel i am being propelled in the right way towards super health thankyou so much for this site i will report back with more news
I tried the oil pulling with extra virgin olive oil, because I am having problems clearing an ongoing sinus infection. I used one tablespoon and kept it in my mouth for about 11 minutes. Exactly how does it help? I do feel somewhat less stuffy. I intend to keep trying and see if it gets better. But I am curious as to how it benefits the sinuses. Mine was very milky looking when I spit it out. Thanks

I tried Oil Pulling for the very first time 30min. ago. Been reading about the great results it brings, so I was really curious. I tried it with 1 TSP. EV Olive Oil; when it first entered my mouth the taste was horrible. I almost spitted it back out but told myself to hold it. Then 5 min. later I really couldn't stand the taste anymore, so after gagging repeatedly, I spit it out. Was rather disappointed at myself for not keeping it in long enough. BUT...interestingly, the oil already turned white & frothy (I'm down with flu, so I guess I must be really toxic now). Then as I was brushing my teeth, I blew out a significant amount of mucus from the left side of my nose (which had been stuffy all night), & after I finished brushing, as I was checking my teeth (do this every morning by habit), I again blew out a significant amount of mucus from the right side of my nose. So now my nose is clear & I'm breathing so much better. As I was looking in the mirror, I happened to notice that my teeth are whiter already & my tongue has a prettier pinkish shade (it had been coated for the past week coz of my flu). I have to say I'm pleasantly shocked. I didn't expect any of this after just 5 min. of what I thought to be a 'failed' OP. One thing, though, the after-taste of Olive Oil is still there, & I don't find that pleasant at all. So I'll definitely continue OP to find some more surprises, but I'll try other oils. Finally, my heartfelt thanks to Earth Clinic for running a true site like this without any gimmick of promoting certain products & to all of you out there for sharing your experiences.
I oil pull 1 tablespoon with olive oil every morning (love the way I feel all day) My concerns are that. I live in the midwest and it gets very cold in the winter. My question is should I wear a hat before going outside in the cold, after pulling. Since it open your head and sinuses up? I know that sounds silly, but I'm pre-menopausal so I get very hot and the cool air feels good. But I don't want to get sick.
