I heard my sister talking about the result she was seeing of OP, so I decided to read up on it and came across this website. I can testify within ten minutes of me OP on the first day, my body starting detoxing and I had this pimple come up on my face, I knew that this OP was working on my body that fast, my energy level has skyrocketed and I no longer feel sluggish in the morning when first getting up, b/c that the first thing I do as soon as I get up... it works for me and I will continute this journey for about 30 days, then maybe bringing that down to 2-3 times a week. I will keep you guys updated on how things are looking up!

I have been oil pulling for a little over a month now and have had some wonderful results. 1. teeth that had begun to loosen are now firmed up in the gums.
2. definitely whiter teeth and fresher breath.
3. Quite unexpectedly, I have lost 4 kilos with no change in eating habits! This is something I have been trying to do for over a year with mixed results. And the weight has stayed off.
4. A reduction in my fat index. Lessening of fatty build-up in my abdominal area.
5. DEEEEP restful sleep.
6. Cessation of heart palpatations.
7. Initially I had seen a marked lowering of blood pressure although it has now gone back up, which possibly can be attributed to me starting to eat foods that were no-nos for me after I saw the easy weight loss and lowered blood pressure. I shall return to my restricted diet and see if I note a lowering again.
9. Much greater energy levels and increased stamina.
10. An overall healthier and glowing appearance, skin and hair.

While I can't begin to say why this works scientifically, it stands to reason that if the oilpulling reduces the toxic load in the mouth(which, let's face it, can be a cesspool) the immune system is freed up to reduce and remove the toxic load in other tissues.

I thought it sounded crazy. But I am always game for a healthier me. This morning was my first try at "Oil Pulling" and I had Immediate Results! my sinus cavities cleared up Immediatley. I can't wait until I reap the benifits from the Mollasses and ACV.. I'm turning everyone I know onto this site. thanks Earth Clinic

Hi, I've been oil pulling for about a month now. I try to do it five days a week at the least. I usually do it on the days that I take Ted's lemon juice and baking soda recipe. It's best to do it first thing in the morning. If you take the lemon juice or ACV with baking soda like I do, wait at least half an hour to 45 minutes to allow it to digest before you start the pulling. Then pull for about 20 minutes and get the digestive juices going again. (The baking soda inhibits digestion for a while, and you will be miserable if you try to eat immediately after.) Then I have a big glass of water (after I have rinsed my mouth really well) with 8 drops of H2O2 and wait another 15 to 30 mniutes before eating. This process really helps my digestive system to 'get going' in the morning. The first week I pulled I broked out horribly, especially around my cheeks. Then I remembered my chiropractor saying she, too, had broken out horribly after she had her toxic metal fillings removed from her teeth. I have metal fillings from years ago and realized that it must really be eliminating a lot of the metal from my bloodstream. I haven't noticed any changes in the way I feel, but I can definitely see from the skin erruptions and sneezes that follow the pulling sessions that I am getting something toxic out of my body. For the people who aren't feeling different yet or noticing physical results, keep pulling. Sometimes it takes many months or even a year to see remarkable results, depending on your level of toxicity. We have spent many years messing up our bodies. They aren't going to heal over night. Hope this helps.

I have had a coated tongue for quite some time now. I tried oil pulling two nights ago swishing the oil in my mouth for 20 minutes. After I spit and brushed my teeth my tongue was bright pink. I couldn't belive it! Thank You

You all had me nervous the whole night before I began my Oil Pulling. It didn't taste bad, and I didn't gag. I did it for 15 minutes the first morning. It was more like an exercise for the facial muscles. I hope to see whiter teeth. I also hope my Dentist notices an improvement in my gums!

Oil Pulling, Ok so it got so bad I turned to the internet. I was sitting at home suffering from the worst sinus infection I have ever had. So I thought I would google my problem and this website poped up first. This was the first time that I had ever heard of oil pulling. Honestly I have to say I thought it would be disgusting. However I was at the point of no return, I had to do something. So I was willing to give it a shot. At first I could not notice any effects of the oil and by the second time I tried it my symptoms were worse. But as the website said I continued and by my third time I was feeling 10X's better. It not only cured by sinus problems but made me feel more relaxed all around. Thank you so much for the info.

I have been doing Oil pulling for one month. I read that it helps hormonal problems, but i didnt think it would erradicate my cramps. But after pulling for 1 month, my menstrual cramps and other pms associated problems are almost non existant. For the first time in years i was able to spend the first day of my course like any other normal day, not bent over in agonizing pain. And my skin has cleared up as well. My sister started OP and after a week she had the same outcome!! No Cramps. I will continue to OP and wait to see all the benefits from "pulling" the toxins out of my body. I also find that it is VERY!!! important that you brush your teeth and drink a large glass of water after pulling because you are releasing these poisonous toxins and you want to get them out.

I've been pulling oil since 10/06 and feel that the most obvious improvment is in my teeth and gums.....bright white teeth and healthy gums that hold my teeth firmly in place where they used to be loose before. Also I sleep more soundly and feel refreshed in the morning. I want to do this for the rest of my life and wonder if that would be OK or not. Is there anything negative that could come from my pulling oil once a day forever.....I'm 65 and it sure beats medication.

Hi, I am in the process of retiring on disability. Last year, my health dramatically declined. My doctor thinks it may be Lyme disease even though I've tested negative. I have been experiencing extreme fatigue and body aches for almost a year now. I started oil pulling about three weeks ago. I'm now only experiencing one or two days per week of extreme fatigue and body aches. For the first time in a year, I feel well enough to tackle the clutter that has built up in my house, I've been organizing and cleaning regularly. I still tire easily, but I am feeling well enough to tackle some pretty big jobs one at a time! Thanks so much for this info. It is really making a difference!

I stumbled across this website looking for a cure for my allergies. I have missed weeks from work due to allergies in the last year. I used ACV and that helped with the allergies but I still had some problems. I started oil pulling and I could really see the toxins leaving my body thru mucas ect.. After two weeks my allergies have been cured and I feel great.

Have been oil pulling for 12 days and taking coconut oil for 10. Am thrilled with the results. On the 2nd day of OP my sinuses started to drain (didn't know they were congested) and two days later my lungs started to expel mucuus. Also found that I was sleeping much better and had more energy.Of course, the mouth and teeth felt great. I am taking coconut oil about 3 times a day. It is all absolutely astounding. I just love your site. Aren't we lucky?

I started OP two weeks ago. The results are amazing. My sinus problems have cleared up after much mucus building and spitting the first few days. Sinus med's are now a thing of the past. My teeth are brighter and my gums no longer bleed when I brush my teeth. My hair is thicker and shinier. I have adult acne that flairs up at times and the OP hasn't really done much for that. I will keep up on the OP daily in hopes that it will clear up my skin. This OP is amazing.

Oil Pulling: starting out. I've had a cold that wasn't going away, and seemed to be getting worse, if anything. My congestion, and the amount of mucus that was coming out when I blow my nose has been alot. I started wondering if I might have a sinus infection, so I thought I'd try oil pulling. Did it once in the afternoon yesterday, and once in the evening, and suddenly realized that, for the first time in a week, I could breathe clearly. Have done it twice today, and have just experienced a strange thing: I blew my nose and the mucus came out bright yellow, like egg yolk. I have never seen anything like this, and was wondering if Ted or any readers could comment?

To Patricia...I had commented to someone else about the same thing, but for a loss of how to spell it, I cut my experience short. My sinus infection had gone undected for so long that the poison went into my lungs, and apparently I had pneumonia, but didn't even realize that until having found this site in desparation, and God's will, started oil pulling...it took two weeks for the mucous from my lungs to blow out of my nose a very dark green...I had never even blown dark yellow out before this OP experience, and have suffered with sinus infections all my life. Keep it up, and get rid of the poison...It took me almost 6 weeks, but for the first time in my life, I don't weeze, cough, almost smother to death in a lying down positon, and breath like I have a new set of lungs..I am 56 years old.

I too had a yellow yolk like release after some ionic foot baths and liver cleansing. It was almost turmeric in colour and I will never forget it. OP is really great if one is ok with seeing and expelling toxic mucous as it frees. I have no problem with what my body produces, sounds, smells or other fluids... None at all. This stuff fascinates me.
