Re: oil pulling

I did google it. I think I would like to give it a short just for the teeth whitening effects! I drink way too much coffee. Has anyone used any oil that would make you gag? I couldn't imagine doing it with evoo.

I thought it would make me gag but I didn't at all.

I can't imagine having that long in a day when no one is making requests that require me to respond.

I am actually considering it for that reason alone. "Don't bug me or I will spit oil on you...."

Very curious, OP...

Not big on the multi-tasking?

I'm curious too. Especially if it whitens. I might try it in the shower.

Re: oil pulling

I would guess that your "toothache" may be related to the sinus issues more than you think. All of the nerves in that area, sinus/ear/jaw relay together. Ear pain can actually be translated into jaw pain and vice versa. Have you ever tried a OTC allergy med? I'm pretty bad right now as well and Allegra works for me. I second a neti pot or rinse. Why does it scare you? I think it's the best thing ever. I'm especially prone to sinus infections and bronchitis. I would have 1-2 infections yearly until I found the neti pot thanks to the mamas on here. I haven't had an infection in 3 yrs and no serious colds either. I've never heard of oil pulling. I wonder what my dentist would think about that. I have a lot of work being done right now, years of neglecting my teeth.

I knew that it could be related but I'm pregnant and don't like to take anything while I am. I think it scares me because I've heard of people using it wrong and getting amoeba infections or other things like that. Also I hate having water in my nose lol

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....
