Better But With Side Effects

I'm on the start of my 4th day of Oil Pulling. I use Extra Virgin Coconut Oil. I have already seen improvements in my teeth & gums - teeth are whiter and my gums don't hurt like they usually do.

I have been doing OP three times a day for 20 minutes each time. I use about a teaspoon of coconut oil.

The downside is that I seem to be feeling quite depressed. I guess it is a detox reaction to the OP.

I normally feel quite fine, so I assume this is a reaction to the OP. I am also taking Apple Cider Vinegar (1 tablespoon twice daily) but I haven't increased the amount recently. I drink plenty of water every day.

I think I might reduce the frequency and/or the duration of my OP sessions. Hopefully that will reduce the intensity of the detox reaction.

Any suggestions on what to do?
