I had four teeth extracted early 06 and I started having trouble with nearly the rest and I could hardly eat because it was too painful.I started oil pulling in october 06 and been doing it every day since. The result is unbelievable- my mouth is no longer out of alignment, no pain and my teeth are as white as when I was a child. I told one of my sisters about it , she been doing it with great results. I can,t say it,s helping with other problems but it is sure working for my mouth! I am truly grateful for the info. Wish I knew about it before I had four teeth pulled oh well better late than never.

Lisa from Lake Charles -- Dont give up on OP though you did not get the result you expected it helps to get rid of harmful bacterias and viruses. they are lots of natural treatments for sinus problems e.g. wild oregano, probiotics olive leaf extract. there is a very good wholistic dr on tv he is also a trained Md. He does the program with his wife. I have learned so much from him. I dont think they want me to say his name or else I would tell you and really hate leave my info on the internet.

I have been doing the oil pulling for several weeks and I have alot more energy, and my teeth are much whiter. I feel great, but I'm wondering what is this black(dark grey) streak is running down the right side of my tongue. Is it toxins coming out of my body? I have no bad side effects other than this colored tongue? I LOVE this site!

I know it may be a little soon for feedback as I have been oil pulling for only 5 days now. However, I wanted to know if anyone else has experienced this: starting yesterday my nose has become very tender and producing more, ya know--boogers. I am wondering if, because OP affects mucous, bad stuff is finding its way out via my nose. Sinuses are fine, just the nose. I have started taking coconut oil and ACV at the same time, so I don't know which to attribute these other benefits I have been noticing: Appetite WAY under control on day 1, especially sugars don't interest me and night time munchies gone, don't like coffee when I do OP, lost about 5#. I had no symptoms before starting, just liked the benefits I read about. If anyone else has experienced the nose-thing, please let me know.

In response to Elizabeth from Arlington, TX: The extra boogies in your nose are probably draining from your sinuses, meaning the ACV is working! Perhaps irritation is from the process of getting rid of said boogies.

i've been oil pulling and my wife also for one month and three days. to us it has been overwhelming and many very effective changes have occurred in our bodies which allows me to recognize how powerful this therapy is. i have far more peace of mind, extremely improved digestion and elimination, sleep much better, strain in muscles is vanished, im 65 years old, my loose teeth are much tighter and i am feeling like im walking around with a younger persons body. my wife and i have not eaten ice cream or cake or pie or candy or chocolate or soda pop for five years. no white sugar or white bread. in short, we'll change our life in any way to achieve good health. if i we're not to improve any more than this i would do oil pulling for the rest of my life. this is the most powerful therapy that has ever come to me. anyone who won't search and research this method and do it for a month to understand that it works is truly dumber than a rock. my whole story, and my wife's story would take a while to relate. how can we get the world to comprehend?

Comment and Question: It's been 2 months that I have been oil pulling. The other day a piece of sediment came out of my lower teeth. I thought my tooth was broken. I brush my teeth 3x a day it really amazed me the effect oil pulling had on my teeth. This loosening of sediment must be because of the oil pulling right? I wonder if the same thing has happened to anyone else? Regards Abby

I started oil pulling every morning about 3 weeks ago after reading about it on this website and researching it further on the internet. The pain in my hips that I have been living with for a couple of years has slowly disappeared. I cannot say for certain that it is related to the oil pulling since I used H2O2 for a few days last month and I also used detox clay baths several times over the past few months but I thought it was worth noting. I had 4 emotional down days last week and have felt upbeat and full of energy since. This could be related to the fact that I am female and approching 50... but could be a detox effect, I don't know. Any oil works for me, all turn white within 5-10 minutes with no adverse effects. I have removed several moles with blood root ( enouraged by your testimonials) and it worked like a charm, the only issue I have is with the healing of the cavity left after the mole falls off. The skin pulls together and forms a keloid with redish discoloration. It actually looks worse than the mole. Is there anything I can use to support the healing process? I have been using VitE without improvement. Thanks for all your input and comments, now I feel so connected to the holistic health community. That's Great!

Bio oil applied, twice a day to the mark will fade in about three months.

I found an easy way to keep the oil in my mouth for twenty minutes. I check my email. Time goes by so fast. Moving the oil in my mouth is not a very demanding activity in terms of intense concentration. Reading the events of the day on line while oil pulling works really well together.

For years I have had a raw, almost purplish red area on my throat that always alarmed physicians but they could not heal it. I did the op and within 4 days the redness is fading significantly. My throat is looking a normal pink color and the soreness is leaving. This is like a miracle since nothing had helped in the past. i have no idea what was the source of the problem but I am thrilled to see it being healed.

I have been very distressed by a horrible taste in my mouth that was metalic in nature. Nothing would get rid of it and it was so awful that I would awaken at night due to the bitterness. I tried the oil pulling for 10 minutes twice a day and had the most wonderful relief. It was not difficult or unpleasant. What a great cure.

I have been oil pulling for about 5 weeks now. First thing I noticed was my sweet tooth completely gone, needless to say with that came weight loss. Also it is true that your ailments first worsen before getting better. My biggest thing was leg pain from my varicose veins. When I first started OP it hurt for about a week since then I haven't had any pain. Thank you for all your great help.

I have been regularly on ACV and occassionally H2O2 since 3 months. Oil pulling for more than 40 days. I have candida on my tongue that really causes a lot of trouble. I suspect this is the cause of my sinus, clumsy head and everything other problem i have. The oil pulling did not have any affect on it so far. But, it does help me get relieve the clogged sinuses in the morning. My teeth did not change in anyway. At one time, it brought out an old problem i used to have, when my chest becomes really heavy and gives pain when i stretch or do any movement that involves those muscles. It is almost gone now, but i still have a little pain. I don't know if this is a side effect, but i started having very dry lips from a 2 weeks. It may be bacuse of the ACV. But, I am drinking plenty of water and using every oil, balm etc. Lips are still dry. Now, I occassinally switch ACV with Lemon juice(yes, i always used the baking soda). I started feeling better when I started adding H2O2 regularly. I noticed that I have less heaviness in my breathing when H2O2 is present. I generally feel very weak. Molassses and ACV helped me tremendously, but i feel I am still not 100%. What would be the best way for me to go? SHould I continue oil pulling? Add something else to what I am doing?

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".

There are way more benefits than reported side effects or no benefits so I would consider that maybe your own mindset is the reason for your body not healing. The fact that our bodies can heal just if we can believe something can heal us is a beautiful and god given blessing that more people should look into. We have become a sick society because we do not eat what nature intended and also cause I minds are filled with negativity and stress.
