I've been oil pulling for over 7 months, every day, with no obvious benefits... I'm planning to keep doing it because I may have built up a lot of toxins in my body having many teeth root canal-ed. I have several sensitive teeth, and I have not noticed any differences either.
I started to drink Sole (Rock salt water). I'm wondering which is more effective - Oil pull first thing the morning and then Sole water, or the other way around.
Oil pulling is to draw toxins out, but Sole is much more than that. If you know which I should start first in the morning, please let me know. Also I would like to know how long I should wait to eat breakfast after drinking Sole.
i have rheomathoid arthrites in my fingers and wrist. i started doing oil pulling for one month now, but it has increased the pain in my wrists.
Hi there! I discovered this site 2 weeks ago and i really liked it. I started oil pulling since that very first day. I suffer from sinus, swollen legs, acidity, hair loss, candida, fungus and bad breath. However, i haven't noticed any change up to now except for my skin which is a little smoother. It has always been smooth though. My mouth doesn't even "feel great" like many of you and the bad breath is still there. I maintain a VERY good dental hygiene. Any advice would be highly appreciated.
I have been oil pulling for app. 7 weeks to help with allergies and sinus problems, eczema, IBS and insomnia. I have suffered from extremely low energy levels for app. 1 year but seem to be getting better after using omega 3 supp., stress vit. and vit.c.( my hair always seems oily and dull now no matter that I wash it every day and with different shampoos ) I do not seem to notice anything with the oil pulling as yet however I have had a strong metallic taste in my mouth for a week that has not gone away yet. I started using organic sunflower oil for 20 min. which always turned white and recently switched to cold pressed organic sesame oil for 30 min. that never gets as white as the sunflower oil did. after reading your Q&A my new routine is : drink baking soda water, brush teeth with toothpaste, oil pulling, rinse with salt water,brush teeth without toothpaste and drink 2 1/2 glasses of water. Can you comment or make improvements to my routine and explain the metallic taste as no one else has mentioned it? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
I just wanted to warn folks about the possibilities of increasing blood pressure DUE to oil pulling and acv therapy. I loved oil pulling, but a week after starting it (once a day), my blood pressure went from 140/95 to 250/150. I had to go to the ER fearing I might have a stroke. I had also been doing acv therapy (2 tablespoons in water twice day) at the same time. I was under medication for my bp (20 mg accupril).Perhaps it is possible that they both might remove medication from the body? I stopped both therapies and thought perhaps it was the acv, so 2 weeks later , I tried one session of oil pulling and my blood pressure went sky high the next day : 236/120 ! I made yet another trip to the ER to avoid stroke and heart attack. I know many people have had great success with both healing modalites, but apparently some of us cannot tolerate the unexpected consequences. I would encourage anyone with high blood pressure to do only one modality at a time and go very slowly, keeping a close eye on your bp readings!
I have been oil pulling faithfully for over a month now, going on two. I still have sinus problems, and I have noticed absolutely no benefits. I do it for twenty minutes every morning on an empty stomach, and swish afterwards with equals parts water and hydrogen pyroxide. No difference. I am very skeptical about the results reported from others, I also believe that mind can convince someone of an expected result, which goes back around to, "Whatever works".
This follows the last email that I wrote. I use mostly cold pressed olive oil but I have seen people who can't stand the oil in their mouths use pure water and it turns white as well. I don't have scientific reasearch to back it up but any oil I have used works for me. One other caution is that if someone is really toxic, five min can be enough or the toxins will burn the mouth. Once I forgot and swished for about 40 min and ended up with mouth sores for about a week as the toxins burned my mouth. I now set a timer that I carry around with me as to not go over twenty min.
