Re: oil pulling

Over the summer I had an impacted wisdom tooth trying to push through and it had become infected (although I didn't know it at the time). I was in SO much pain I couldn't sleep and the side of my face that the tooth is on was super swollen. It was the weekend so I couldn't get into a dentist right away, so I searched for toothache remedies and came across oil pulling. I used coconut oil and I swished like no tomorrow. By the time I was done swishing the swelling had gone down considerably and the pain had also lowered. I was amazed! I was able to sleep that night, and I swished with coconut oil several times a day until I was able to get into the dentist. It worked better than oragel, tylenol with codeine, ibuprofen, etc....
