Does oil pulling remove toxic metals and other toxic substances from the body much like oil in the car helps keep your engine clean and running smoothly?

I have been OPing for almost two weeks and am just amazed. I guess for me it was worth it just to finally, finally have a lymph node that is normal, not swollen or infected. It went down in a matter of three days. My teeth are whiter, my skin is smooth, I am feeling calm and relaxed and sleeping better. The first couple of days, yes, I had bad headaches and some fatigue but you soldier on, it's only temporary. The benefits are worth it in the end!!

Just started oil pulling last week and have already seen improvements in my health. Sinuses are clearing up, neck, shoulder and knee pain gone, and arthritic hip significantly better. I started with coconut oil since that's what I had on hand but have since switched to sunflower oil. Both are light and very easy to pull with.
I have noticed my skin has become a bit oily since I started pulling. Does this get better or does anyone have tips on treating the oily skin?
I've also been wondering if there is any problem with adding some garlic oil to the sunflower oil? I have garlic oil gel caps for my dogs. On a whim I cut one open and added it to my sunflower oil. It gave it a little kick and really cleared my sinuses. But I've heard conflicting things about getting garlic oil in the bloodstream. Think it would be a problem to add garlic oil to my OP routine once a week?

oil pulling is overall a good remedy. Swish 1 Tablespoon sunflower, or sesame oil between the teeth for around 15 minutes every day. DO NOT SWALLOW. This pulls poisons from your mouth. If you find that you gag, then spit it out ( in the toilet ) and then try again the next day. You will eventually build yourselft up to it. It is important to brush your teeth thoroughly after you spit the oil out either with natural soap or toothpaste. I use soap because it helps rid the poison residue. Oil pulling also cures certain ailments from the body over time. My dental exams have been excellent since I've been doing this. I try to do it everyday for about 2 to 3 weeks to cleanse thoroughly.
using coconut or sesame. Is it best to use just one or to alternate? is toasted sesame ok? using oil in am and gargling with peroxide at night to help drain sinuses. Will irrigating nose/sinuses with silver interfere with or complicate the process? will there always be side effects? only doing for a short time, already getting increased draining. Will any recurring intermittent injuries (a few places in lower back) and/or arthritis get noticeably worse before getting better? can it improve postmenopausal dryness without being estrogenic?
I am very thankful for this site and the people who share their experiences on natural healing cures. I recently started oil pulling with seseme oil (toasted was what I could find at the grocery store) for the last three weeks. I wanted to get started right away! I am loving the results I am getting. My gums are healing, looking more pink, my teeth have begun to whiten up(they were yellow), my breath doesn't smell any more.
What I would like to know has anyone experienced waking up in the morning with a mouth full of thick mucus that has a yellow tinge to it. I also noticed the tarter buildup on my teeth wearing down? Is that possible with oil pulling? I'll take it!!! I would appreciate any helpful responses. Thanks
why is it not ok to spit the oil down the kitchen sink when finished with oil pulling? thanks!
Would like to know about oil-pulling, what it does and how to do it. Sounds like it has good results, would like to know more Thanks
why can't you spit the oil in the kitchen sink when you're done with oil pulling?
Quick question: can I still pull oil with a new lip piercing? Thanks.
I've read with interest about oil pulling, which I have never heard of before. The testimonials sound impressive, the only problem is that there is no mention of HOW to do it effectively. I am at a loss here! Please advise!

I did the OP for the first time this morning with VCO, I could only keep it in my mouth for just a few minutes. I'd really like to work up to doing this for a much longer period of time because it felt so good after I was done at such a short time. But, I have crowns on most of my teeth. Should I be concerned about them possibly falling off if I do the OP? Any help with this will be very appreciated. Thank you EC for so much wonderful information.
I just found this website yesterday and it's wonderful. As you can imagine the information is overwhelming and soooo interesting. I saw a post from a woman who stated she had relief from a breast discharge due to a lump and that the OP helped. Today I've searched and searched and cannot find that post again. If anyone has any feedback on the subject I would greatly appreciate hearing from you.
since I no longer have my original teeth but have dentures will oil pulling do me any good??

hi, ive been oil pulling now for 5 days with pure coconut oil, finding this quite hard to do, I only last 5 minutes, when I spit it out, it is white but runny, when I do spit the oil out, straight away I start coughing, and bring up loads of rubbish of my chest, but have noticed my chest clear, and my face brighter and smoother, I just hope it is healing my gums, every day I check my gums, just to see if there is a little improvement, as the gaps from my gum to my teeth look terrible, nothing up to now, not sure when I will see any improvement, but I will let u know. ill keep oil pulling.
