I was curious if anyone here has tried oil pulling? I heArd about it from a friend and then coincidentally while reseArching natural treatments came across it again.... The claims are nothing short of Amazing and at the least it whitens your teeth! I started this morning using the recommended sunflower oil..... I also found someone recommended using oil of oregano as it's a powerful natural antibiotic and that sounded like a great combo to me i wonder if anyone has tried this? :)

I started Oil Pulling about six months ago after reading about it and watching some videos on YouTube.

I use Organic Sesame Oil, 1 T, 15-20 minutes. When I first heard about it, it was the "white teeth" that motivated me, and I was doing it almost daily. According to the info I read, when I googled it, there are other benefits as well. It seems to be controversial, like about everything these days, not a surprise.

Anyway, I had a "gut sense" that almost daily was too often. Now I Oil Pull two to three times a week.

I do notice my teeth are becoming whiter.

Another thing that I've noticed is that from time to time I spit up those white, bad smelling "curds" which I didn't even know I had. Gross! I did a google search and they are called "tonsil stones" (of course, there is a fancier, scientific word).

I'll spare all the "google" details...but I would not be surprised if the tonsil stones are related to Lyme. And this is even more Gross!!–but I've heard these can also be a way that parasites are released from the body. I'm not sure whether to go parasites released--yuck OR parasites released--great!!

I did test positive for parasites...so...that's my experience.

WOW!
I was reading about oil pulling & discovered that I have suffered from "tonsil stones" most of my life!!!! Soooo, now I will be trying oil pulling - as soon as I have the energy to get out to the store.
Thank you CMRB for posting about oil pulling!
It's been said:LD patients can be as ill as people w/ congest. heart failure & in as much pain as post-op patients.

I'm excited to see what kind of results I get, I did it Friday morning and wether coincidentally or not had the deepest sleep I've had in a long time on sat night. And today.... No kidding my arthritis pain has felt better than it has in months, I didn't even have to take a pain killer ( just my regular celebrex anti inflamatory) I think it may be a mix of detox baths, TONS of dry brushing, sauna, Foot baths and cutting out sugar completely for the last week. Maybe oil pulling will b the icing on the cake! I'm sure I will have many more bad days to come but this good day gives me a blip of hope to continue on what I'm doing

Also daisy I'm curious why you felt doing it everyday was too much? From what I've read the more the better but would like to hear your opinion!

CMRB, WOW great to read about the wonderful day you had–always remember that day on this journey and know there are more of those kind of days ahead!!

Regarding the question you ask...I believe in that gut sense and intuition. I pay more attention to it these days than in times past. I was having those "gut thoughts" that Oil Pulling everyday was too much. It was shortly after that I noticed my teeth were "sensitive" while I did it. So I cut back the frequency and haven't had the "sensitive" teeth or that gut sense, since. SMILE

I encourage anyone who is considering Oil Pulling to be sure and google it. What you learn is worth your time–from what to expect, the total affect on the body (not only the teeth), dangers (ie: bacteria--you do not want to swallow that oil!), etc. and you can watch YouTube videos of actual people doing it, but not me---nope! LOL
