The most obvious result of oil pulling is improved dental health. Teeth become whiter, gums pinker and healthier looking, and breath fresher. That alone makes it worthwhile. What is really remarkable is that the health benefits don't stop there. Many health problems, including those which medical science has yet to find cures for, are also improved or completely cured. Oil pulling has the potential to help with just about any illness or chronic condition.

Asthma and Allergy cured by oil pulling
I am 56 years old. I have been suffering from allergy and asthma from the age of 11 years when I had my first menses. Whenever I had head bath after monthly periods I was suffering from asthma, cough and phlegm. It was very severe. This was lasting for about 3-4 days every month. In addition whenever I had head bath I used to suffer from the same type of allergy. I had tried all types of treatment for 45 years to get rid of this but without any success. I was spending my life with medicines but without cure. They had even diagnosed as a heart problem. I had lost hope of living. Life seamed a big burden and uncertain.
At this stage, on 3rd March 94 I met you (T Koteswara rao) in a marriage and you came to me and explained to me about OP and encouraged me to practice it. 2 months after practicing my problems of health became a little more severe and I took them as healing reactions and consoled myself with the hope that I am going to be cured totally after the reactions. These reactions lasted for about 2 months. Now after 9 months of OP I have become wonderfully healthy. Asthma has gone, no pains in the joints or body, no spots or discoloration of the skin instead the skin has acquired a new shine, digestion has improved and I can eat anything without the fear of allergy. It is really enjoyable to eat things, which you like instead of fearing about allergy and asthma.
My advice to all women is, do OP for all your problems you will remain healthy and your looks will improve.

Oilpulling cure by Allergic bronchitis with wheezing
For the last three months, my wife and I are doing OP regularly. I suffer from severe running nose. Now after I started doing OP, the running nose has become very mild and it persists only for a day or so. I also used to get severe bouts of cough and with great difficulty manage to get the sputum out. Now the running nose does not follow by cough.
My wife used to develop allergic bronchitis with wheezing due to dust or after severe cold and on long journeys. She tried OP for three months and did not develop wheezing or severe cough.

Oil pulling cures for Cancer cases
Most importantly, I want to write about three cases of cancer. In two cases, biopsy report confirms “schirrus type of carcinoma of uterus”. In the third case, it is malignant growth of a tumor of a size bigger than tennis ball on the jawbone. This case is also of a woman on homeopathy medicines. Within two months of OP, in both cases of carcinoma of uterus bleeding reduced, general condition improved and they are confident that their disease will go. You know confidence/faith contributes to cure more than medicine.
In the case of malignant tumor after a month of OP, pus came out of a hole in the tumor on the jawbone. The pus stopped after three weeks, the hole closed and the size of tumor came down to almost normal. In these cases, my medicines must have given temporary relief. I am hoping they will totally heal.
In case of joint pains the improvement that would have resulted in eight months with my medicines, have come within two moths of OP.
For allergy, asthma and tooth diseases, the results are wonderful. My medicines must have given only temporary relief. I am hoping OP will heal them totally.

Constipation – Piles cures by oil pulling
I have been practicing oil pulling for the last one year with Til (gingelly -sesame) oil for fifteen to twenty minutes daily in the morning without fail. I am 82 years old. I have been suffering from constipation and piles for the last four decades. I consulted many doctors, used many medicines but with only temporary relief.
Within two weeks of practicing oil pulling, I started getting relief. There was no pain during motion. Inflammation and piles decreased. I started having free and clear evacuation. I am sleeping peacefully and happily at night. Indigestion, lack of appetite has gone. Decades old pain has gone just by doing OP with gingelly (sesame) oil. Our Ayurvedic treatment is a comprehensive solution for all diseases. It is good for all to practice. -“With oil pulling Health Is Great Wealth”.

oil pulling cures by Diabetes - Pregnancy - Child birth
My age is 41 years. I am a diabetic patient with no children. After doing oil pulling for three months, I became pregnant. At the time of pregnancy, my blood sugar increased. I stopped oil pulling for about a month thinking it was aggravating my problem. Having come to know that aggravation is a sign of cure, I started oil pulling again. The sugar level came down and I continued oil pulling throughout my pregnancy. After a caesarian operation, I gave birth to a baby. The doctors checked for sugar, both for the baby and me. We both were free from sugar. The wound healed well and stitches removed on the seventh day. Doctor was astonished at this. I found oil pulling benefited me in the following ways:
I weigh 90 Kgs. height 4’11” with weak twisted foot. By walking, the foot used to become septic and pus used to ooze. By oil pulling and walking daily, I became strong and was able to walk up the steps without difficulty.
oil pulling reduced sugar gradually and diabetes cured. The skin became clear and shining and the spots on the body disappeared.
The body became strong, teeth firm; gums healthy and the hair turned black and stopped becoming white or gray.

I am one of the old patients suffering from mouth ulcer since last 12 to 15 years. After going through the article published in Kannada Prabha daily I started "OIL PULLING" twice in a day (morning & evening) from 27th of June 1995 along with medicine. During initial 2-3 months period I got only 25 % benefit. After that I got more benefit in 4-5 months period. After completing 6 months I got 100 % result and at the same time I slowly reduced my medicines. Now after completing of 7 months I have completely stopped the medicines and I have no complaints of mouth ulcer since last 2 to 3 months. So I am happy to say that I got 100 % relief/cure of my old sickness of mouth ulcer from "OIL PULLING".

In my 36th year in 1980, I had suddenly developed double vision and right eyelid closing. Diagnosed as myasthenia gravis, medicine (prostigmine) prescribed.
During the year 1993, I started practicing oil pulling. I used medicine for one month along with oil pulling. Later I stopped medicines and continued oil pulling. Myasthenia Gravis cured without medicines. When I stopped for one month, it came up again. Now I do oil pulling only and do not use any medicines.

oil pulling cures for Back Pain, Neck Pain
I had back pain for the past ten years and have been taking treatment for the same with several doctors and traction was also given for sufficiently long time without any improvement. I never used to go to bed without a medicine like Brufen, Voveran and others daily.
After reading the essay by Sri Tummala Koteswara Rao on oil pulling, I started practicing oil pulling with sunflower refined oil and started finding improvement within fifteen days and I was much relieved of the pain within three months. Now it is six months since I have been doing it and 90% of the pain is relieved. Now along with the back pain, the pain in my neck and arm pits has also gone. I am not taking any medicine for the back pain. I do not dare to stop oil pulling.
After finding good results myself, I started giving lectures in Telugu on "Keep Fit with oil pulling" in various local schools and associations and all of them are doing and most of them are very much benefited.

oil pulling cures for Knee and Ankle Pain
Though I was reading the reports of the efficacy of oil pulling in curing certain diseases in “Andhra jyoti”, I did not begin until my brother, got relief from asthma and advised me to practice. I was not able to sleep under a fan or in the open as my nose used to block. Cold-water bath was another curse. After practicing oil pulling, I am able to sleep right under the fan with full speed with no discomfort. The occasional asthmatic or esonophilia attacks vanished. The pain on the left knee and right ankle for three to four years are no longer there. A small eruption on my skull - five years old - vanished. - 20 years old piles - has miraculously vanished.

Skin-- Eczema Cures by oil pulling
I am 79 years and have retired as a teacher. I wanted to be healthy by doing OP and have been practicing once daily since November 95. I have eczema for the last 30 years on the left foot. It has been there inspite of various treatments. Similarly, on the right hand index finger eczema is there for the last 10 years. I have lower back pain for quite few years. It was called spondylitis. I have been OP for the last 1 year and 8 months. Lower back pain has completely gone and no pain. Eczema on the right index finger is also cured and skin is normal. The eczema on the left foot is becoming normal with a little itching sometimes. I am sure it will also go, but the cure is simply surprising, but I am confident that the remaining symptoms of eczema on the left foot will also be cured.

oil pulling cures for Tooth Pain and Loose Teeth
I am an 86 year, aged retired public servant. I developed tooth ache. The toothache was really agonizing. I thought, I may try, being a skeptic, oil pulling before visiting the dentist. Hardly did I try it for a couple of days then the intensity of ache came down. In another two days the pain stopped totally. This pain was centered on an incisor the base of which was affected and tooth itself was shaking. Having got some relief I developed faith in its efficacy and continued the treatment for a fortnight. The affected tooth miraculously firmed up and now I am able to bite fruits and other not so hard items of food. This is a radical change....I feel thankful for this therapy.
