Has anyone ever tried oil-pulling all day? Can it be harmful for you? I would like to try it to see what happens, but don't want to put myself in any danger. Any feedback will be appreciated. Thanks!

Do you do this rinsing procedure before or after the OP? Sounds good, I just don't know when to do it :)
I haven't tried the OP yet, but I did read your website, then clicked on the link you provided, http://www.oilpulling.org/
Your website says to do the first OP of the day BEFORE brushing your teeth, but the link says to do the first OP of the day AFTER brushing your teeth, tongue scraping and washing the mouth. Does it matter then whether it's before or after brushing your teeth? Thank you. I just want to get it right.
Kind regards from Australia, Lynn
Hello...Rani here, yes I was reading on the borax remedy for pulling fluoride from the body and organs. In the process I jusmed over to oil pulling...but i remember reading one of the post that mentioned a remedy, oil, herb, ? that is the most potent natural antibiotic. I was on the oil pulling post and the one on borax and fluoride removal if that helps. If you know what I am talking about please let me know, I would so appreciate it. Thanks, Rani
EC: Can't find it, but we're guessing it's either oregano oil or garlic.

On Oil Pulling, Do you do it with or without dentures?
Today was my first day of oil pulling. I just found out about this today from a book on loosing weight. I am using sesame oil. I would like to know if thickening of a lung would be helped by oil pulling. Would it also help with the prostate? Can teeth become healthier if they are not? I didn't see anyone post these types of conditions.
I have been doing oil pulling for 3 days now and I feel freshness. It seems to be helping in my general conditions too.
I tried the oil pulling, am only on the third day. My schedule is erratic, so it's hard to arrange to do this if I have to wait four hours between each time. Is there a reason for this? I haven't seen any results that I can swear are from this yet, since I have also started the acv treatment, and have had excellent results with it. I can breathe again, the first night, first time in months, my husband also tried it and had the same results. We are sold on the acv, hope to have good results from the OP. If anyone can tell me why we have to wait 4 hours in between OP, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Oil pulling and Celiac/IBS
I am glad I have found this site last spring. I started oil pulling in February March this year and I stopped doing it when I became gluten intolerant in late spring. I was overwhelmed with all my symptoms and what to do about them. Anyway, I am now back to oil pulling for the last 5-6 days. I do it in the morning for 20 minutes sometimes more and sometimes twice a day. I love how my mouth feels after oil pulling.
But I am a little worried because I started having soft stools and diarrhea for the last 2 days. I wonder if my oil pulling wasn't what triggered my IBS this spring too. I don't know if that's because the oil is pushing my system to get rid of the last bits of gluten too. Anyway, after going gluten free in the summer, I was getting back to normal and having between 2-3 bowel movements but this morning by 12am, I already had 3 and around 1:00pm it was about 4 BM! I don't know if it is because of the cosmetics I use too.
I would appreciate feedback from anyone and specially those with gluten intolerance.
EC: Hi Mira, would you kindly tell us what oil you are using? Thanks!
I am interested in trying the oil pulling, I was just wondering if I could incorporate it into my current routine (before I brush of course) of brush, floss, then mouthwash, or if the mouth wash would somehow interact or counteract with the oil pulling effects???? I was also curious if it would be at all beneficial to alternate oils ie. one in the am and one in the pm, since different oils have different benefits?
I have been OP for 11 MONTHS now hoping for some relief from severe coeliac disease problems. I am at present crippled over with stomach pain and feeling as though I need the toilet all the time but it brings no relief. My hope is that OP will clear my system and maybe let my body start to heal itself, as I have been suffering severely with coeliac disease for years now.
I am 20 years old, and this is blighting my life and I am desperate for help.
Could this be OP? Im a bit frightened.

EC: Please tell us what type of oil you used. Thanks!
Why does oil pulling work? It acts like a lubricant in your body's hydraulic systems. Sucking like a vacuum, the greasy fluid seals off access to your body's water and air availability. It pushes lymph with poisons, air and nutrients in it through any exit it can (lungs, pores, eyes, hair,etc) along with any water it needs to transport the gunk. That is why, you have to drink three glasses of fluid afterwards. Analogizing with frying oil, it does not work until your cells' water is added to the mix. Then with your cell water the oil becomes hydrogenated, less viscous and less effective after 10 or 15 minutes. The oil solution is forced into your system through the opening below your tongue, your tongue's taste cells, your gums, nasal passage, hairs, and etc. Depending who you want to be, mouthwash with Caesar's, French, Russian, Italian, Basil or Pennzoil.

hi, i have been doing OP for about three months now. And when i have a one or two day break i've noticed that i get blind pimples on my face. why is this?
I was doing oil pulling from May, 2009 and I did not have any problem till the midnight of September, 26th. I felt my bed room is whirling. Since then I have been diognised the following problem : Left maxillary sinusities, cervical spondylosis and hypothyroid (TSH:6.25). As soon as I get up there will be palpitations.Once I take coffee, it will increase. While walking there will be an unbalance and I feel I am about to fall. There is a terrific mental depression. While lying on the bed on the left side there will be whirling feeling. My left knee joint developed a pain. My doctor advised me to stop oil pulling. After oil pulling for five months, I have stopped oil pulling from October 1st. Now I am taking medicines for hypothyroid and sinuousities. Can anyone tell me the symptoms are the side effect of oil pulling (after five months). Any body got the same symptoms after five months of pulling?
Anybody's hyphothyroid, sinusities and cervical spondylosis with the same symptoms got cured after oil pulling?
EC: Hi Vishwapurna, can you tell us what type of oil you were using to oil pull with? Thanks!
