I have done OP for about 2 wks now. I had a brown discolored tooth and after 2 pulls the brown is gone. I have had my teeth cleaned many times by a dentist and still had that brown tooth. I am really excited that it is now the same as the rest of my teeth. I am now pulling to see if it will help spider veins on my legs. If anyone can give me info on that please share.

I have a question regarding OIL PULLING. I am interested in doing this but have some concerns. I have saliva issues - stones and possibly another problem. Will this aggravate the issue as it heals it or just make the problem worse? I have a pretty toxic load - bad teeth (no more mercury though), high blood pressure, diabetes, skin problems, scalp problems, mostly likely thyroid & adrenal issues also, not to mention an extreme stress situation currently. Is there a way to do this without getting sick - I have too many people depending on me to get sick doing this. Suggestions please!

Oil Pulling. Any benefit with this therapy for weight loss? In the short time I've been doing Oil Pulling, I have seen some very good changes in my complexion and energy level and would like to lose some weight and wondered if oil pulling is effective in this regard.

I started oil pulling two days ago. (1 tablespoon for 20 minutes first thing in the morning) The reason I started is a sinus infection that seems to be getting better. I was also pulled by the promise of detoxing from heavy metals since I have ingested a lot of lead as a kid. An other reason for me to give the OP a try was my allergy related respitory problems that I have had since early childhood. The reason that I am writing earth clinic is that I have developed a burning rash on my legs. I am wondering if it is related and if anyone else has had this happen. I did eat quite som pecan nuts the other day and am wondering wether I might have become allergic to them. (I am allergic to cashews) Thank you for responding. Bas

I have tried OP pulling for several weeks and results have been incredible. I have had suffered sinus problems and after OP it has cured them. I have felt this calmness that I havent felt for A LONG TIME. The problem in life is that you get told so many solutions to health issues that you dont know which one to choose. I just think that the remedies that make you think "thats disgusting I dont want to try it" are the ones that really work. I feel that especially sinus sufferers are prone to mood swings, feeling low and feeling drained that OP is a BREATHE OF FRESH AIR (that sounds good!). So give it a try and dont be shy MAJID KHAN (happy dude)

Hi. I've recently started Oil Pulling treatment and although just a few days, my energy level is elevated and my teeth are brighter. I am hoping for result in lowering blood pressure. My question is, would OP help relieve pain from Interstitial Cystitus? A chronic pain problem for the last year. Doctor consultations/meds have not helped. Please post this question on the website. thanks!

For the interstitial Cystitus which can be very painful, try drinking lemon water for the initial pain and then later it will get rid of it. Make the lemon water as strong as possible, say 4 wedges squeezed into a glass of water making it tart. NO SUGAR!! I told a friend about this and she said when her father had bladder cancer he was told by the doctor to use this for pain. If you drink the juice of 1 lemon in an 8oz glass of water when you first get up with no food or coffee for 30 minutes there after, you can dissolve gallstones. It takes about a year consistently. You also need to take some digestive enzymes to aide in digestion. Then also take some Red Rice Yeast and CoQ10 to bring down cholesterol, which causes gall stones. Tumeric can be used for getting rid of melonomas ans this is substantiated by science on the Texas Anderson College Cancer Research Center site. I have used it and it has stopped the growth of some facial and arm skin cancers with amazing results. I wonder if you could make a paste of it and put it on the cancers...Hmmmm?

Hi Kathy, thanks for your extra info, could you tell us about how much turmeric is needed daily, I assume power, to affect the skin cancers?

Thank you!!! I had an absessed touth and do not live anywhwere near a dentist. I am a herbalist so I lanced the absess and extracted the poisens. I then soaked a piece of cotton in echinacia and golden seal tincture with grain alcolol and dabbed this into pure goldenseal root powder. This seemed to help the tooth for a while. About a week or so later it started to infect again.I was already taking the echanicia golden seal tincture internally to boost my immune system.I found your info on oil pulling and gave it a try. Unbelievable !! It worked. My mouth felt clean and the absess has disapeared. My tounge was pink immediatly after and i loved the clean feeling in my mouth. I am so grateful because my tooth absessed during the Christmas Season and getting to see a dentist anywhere close by is next to immpossible. Thank you for this info. Chris.

I have been oiling pulling for 3 weeks now after accidentlly coming across this web page. I was suffering from a sinus infection for 3 months and taking dayquil everyday just to get through the day. After one time of OP my sinus drained imediately, I did't have to wait. I stopped the meds that day, continued to OP, mucus pulled out everyday. I am amazed. Also my teeth, gums, and tongue are cleaner than ever. A couple of things I did't expect: My energy has skyrocketed, even in the morning (its been at least 20 years I have had energy like this without caffine). Also I don't crave caffine, sugar, salt. I sleep restful and don't need as much sleep. My skin is as soft as a baby. I was hooked on monster energy drinks, I drank at least 3 aday, but none since OP. God gives us the tools to heal ourself, we just have to use them. Thank-you.

Dear Angel, I read your mail posted in 2008 on oil pulling. Could you tell me what brand and what oil you used. Other details would be much appreciated. Thanks

I tried the Oil Pulling remedy and found my mouth felt very clean and 'lubricated' - almost like my mouth was younger inside!!! I recommended it to my sister, but I am a little concerned because she is on thyroxin for her thyroid. Does anyone know of any adverse effects from using OP alongside thyroxin?

I had a Sinus infection that started in April 2006, I found out 8 months later is was an infected root canal, which led me on a battle for my health, Traditional Medical and Dental professionsals had me ping ponging back and forth between them, i see now due to their ignorance. had my mouth cleaned up a month ago all metals out, have been detoxing since and feel better and worse at the same time. Started oil Pulling 2 1/2 weeks ago and noticed the Sinus infection has improved and at the same time feels a little worse, can Ted comment on my situation? I feel that the benefits of Oil Pulling can help more than anything, the Biological Dentist had a Homeopathic MD take a saliva test to make sure all metals were out of my mouth before they did a Cavitation surgery on the infected tissue left behind from infected tooth. My question is does it take time for sinus to heal? Any feedback from anyone would be most helpful. Thank You, Toni

I found this site because I was searching for a rememdy for the whiteness on my tounge. I struggled with the idea of OP for about a week and decided to do it. The first time I did it I did it for 20 minutes, but immediatly noticed my tounge was nice and pink again. The second day and beyond(now on my 5th day), i got a cold sore which I get very infrequently,and I also would get weird headaches too, so I hope it is s good sign. It is one of the worst cold sores I have ever had BTW, and I also felt real sick for a little while and sluggish.It almost feels like things are trying to leave my body. I am going to keep it up and see what develops, and will post my results later.

I started doing oil pulling, its 2weeks and my BP increased and also I had severe Gas problem in my stomach. My doctor increased my BP dose... Is it due to oil puling?? Should I continue doing it or stop it?

I tried oil pulling for the first time this morning and it had an incredible effect on my thrush. Not only that but my gums have already almost completely stopped bleeding. I've been on medicine after medicine for thrush but each one makes it worse and the doctors were stupmed. 1 session of oil pulling (I only did it for 5 mins to start off) has gotten rid of most of my thrush except the thick parts in the back of my tongue. This is truely amazing.

About 8 months ago, my wisdom teeth were giving me so much pain I could barely speak, much less eat. The dentists would tell me to go to a surgeon to get them removed and the surgeon would tell me to see my dentist because they weren't out enough to be removed! After about 2 weeks of this non-sense, a friend told me to try oil-pulling. After the first 4 days, I started seeing results! My teeth weren't hurting so much and they felt cleaner. I haven't visited a dentist since then, nor any other doctor. I haven't even gotten a cold this year!! I used to get a cold or fever or sinus infections (you name it) every few months with the change in the weather, but not this year! I had a sore throat 2 weeks ago but that lasted 2 days and I was better already! My face looks brighter and I feel more energized as well. I would recommend this to anybody, whether you have problems or not. It's absolutely amazing! I feel healthier now than I did 5 years ago! Thank you so much for sharing this!
