I am female and 45. My gums have been receding and bleeding when I brushed for about 10 years. My teeth gathered tartar and stained very quickly especially on the rear of the front lower teeth. The dentsit could offer no solution except use a high speed electric toothbrush and floss and regular, painful cleaning.

About two years ago I was worried about the effects of fluoride in my water supply (I have an underactive thyroid) and decided in addition to drinking 0 fluoride water to also find an alternatice toothpaste.

Amazingly, just giving up regular toothpaste stopped the bleeding immediately (it starts as soon brush if I relapse)but did not stop the buildup of tartar and unsightly staining.

I was looking for an solution for my receding gums as I had started getting pain from the exposed dentine. I found sites advertising theraputic oils which finally led me to the oil pulling forum.

I have not done oil pulling regularly but the results have been good. The surface staining is alsmost gone. After oil pulling the solid tartar starts to break down and crumble each time I pull if any has built up. My teeth stay clear of soft plaque for a few hours and it is easier to remove. Tartar has obviously gone from between my rear lower teeth as I can floss between som I could not before. There is no visible sign of gum rejeneration in the worst area below my two front lower teeth but they no longer have a grey tinge which was indicating to my dentist that they were dead (I have never thought they were). The pain from exposed teeth has gone.
I use sesame oil and am now adding a couple of drops of oil of thyme and also a heavily diluted (professionally) oil of sage in the pulling mix. WARNING oil of sage is extremely toxic and has killed when used in incorrect doses in aromatherapy.

The only disadvantage I have found regarding puling is it makes my jaw muscles ache!

I have suffered from chronic illness most of my adult life. I have digestion problems, light coloured narrow stools. Difficulty absorbing food. I have allergies and endometriosis, adhesions on my bowel. I am chronically fatigue all the time. I have had surgery in the past for Endometriosis and really wanted to avoid it if at all possible. At the moment my health protocol is working with a diet that is more alklineing. Also Oil Pulling, Urine Therapy,Alkineing Drinks made with Molasses lemons and kelp and ozonating my water twice a day. I would love to get better more then anything else. I have a son who is 4 and I feel that I do not have the energy to be the way I would like to be with him. Every thing is a struggle because my energy is low.

When I read about oil pulling, it made sense to me, so I began. My age-related female health issues seem to beget other issues. One is my receding gums. I believe my gums are showing improvement since I began oil pulling. Another is my feet are smoother. I have a problem with seborrhea and believe this may be improving since oil pulling.

I don't know if it is really ridding my body of toxins but the difference in my face is amazing. All the puffiness is gone completely - I look like I'm 5 or 10 years younger than before I started

I started oil pulling having in mind a general improving of health, and it actually made me get rid of my acnea problems in 3 months time. I have been doing it continuosly for a year now. My acnea was a nodular form, i don't know how to explain it medically, but i had nodules forming underneath my skin which hurt a lot and no dermatological treatment I tryed worked on them. I was so used to them that it took me 3 month to realise they were gone. the only change in my life was the oil pulling thing. and believe me, i was very conscious of my diet and what ever other life style could affect my acnea condition. nothing else then the oil pulling did the trick. i found a possible explanation on some website of a person who was practising it ... but i cant find the link anymore to put it here. suposedly it helps get rid of bacteria and toxins in the body. as acnea was the one thing i had a clear problem with, i cant testify for anything else, as i had a good health also before starting oil pulling. anyway, i feel very well with it and now its part of my morning routine for so long i cant imagine stoping it ... :) somehow, im afraid my acnea will come back

I'm glad because on day 21 of oil pulling, my skin condition,Keratosis Pilaris, a condition I had for 40 years, diminished by 95%. In the last few weeks, it has diminished to almost nothing. I also have experienced great relief from minor joint aches. The aches in my feet were uncomfortable enough that I was massaging my feet daily on a foot roller for relief. I have been taking MSM glucosamine for joint pain, but may no longer have to do so.I now have zero foot and shoulder aches and only minor hip joint aches. I have noticed that I am sleeping much better. After a life-time of insomnia, it became much worse with the onset of menopause. Now I sleep about 7 hours a night and do not need to take any kind of sleep aid. Because of OP, I now have very white teeth, a much pinker tongue, and a great decrease of herpes-like mouth sores, which would flare up about every two to three weeks. In the last 11 weeks, I have had one sore that did not last long -- maybe a few hours.

I am practicing OP daily. It is very good. I am instructing all my devotees to practice OP and they are practicing it. I am thankful to you for having taken so much interest to propagate this simple method of cure to all the people.

The Compassionate Almighty God may give you unlimited Devotion, Knowledge and Spiritual strength and protect you!

I have doing somthing wrong and I dont know If it is emotional or food I have searched for the problemsince I was 40. 16 years of age I noticed when I breathed out I would hold my breath. At about 40 years old all my muscle started to hurt and I am 70 years old now and I hurt even worse. I also have a bacteria in my gums. I dont believe in names of disease I do believe in toxins. This is why i believe in OP I have read so many experience stories it just has to work I started with 1 OP. then 2,3,4,5,6 day I did 3 OP per day. Now on my 7,8 day I am doing 4 OP a day.

Oilpulling user from USA

Have been oil pulling for one week. Too soon to regret it and too soon to know what if any benefits I am getting from it.

OP brings out phlegm from the body. Phlegm is poison. Removal of this brings life, energy, light and shine to the body. I can say with 58 years experience in Ayurveda, that OP is a therapy of potency and power to bring health to body.

I have been doing OP for two years now with my family members. It is a healthy and good habit and has no side effects.

Oilpulling user from India

This therapy is very simple and inexpensive. Based on the benefits I gained, I strongly recommend this therapy to heart patients as well as people suffering from asthma and other lung infections. It has many good effects and therefore all can practice.

Oilpulling user from India

I am kicking off allopathic medicines. I am recommending OP to others. I use gingely oil. All members of my household are now practicing OP. OP is a magic and wonder cure for all diseases.

Oilpulling user from India

“Many think it is a simple therapy. True it is simple, cheap, safe and sure therapy. It is gentle and kind to the afflicted - a divine gift to the suffering humanity. "Practice it and become healthy”.

Oilpulling user from India

I am 82 years old. I have been suffering from constipation and piles for the last four decades. Within two weeks of practicing OP, I started getting relief. Inflammation and piles decreased. Decades old pain has gone just by doing OP with gingely (sesame) oil. It is good for all to practice.

Oilpulling user from India

The effect of OP on a variety of diseases like skin lesions, eczema, tooth pain, throat, ulcers, bleeding gums, upper and lower respiratory diseases, allergies, asthma, gynecological disorders, piles, chronic dyspepsia, are surprisingly and unbelievably good, all this at almost negligible cost and with no untoward reactions. I, whole-heartedly and without any inhibitions, recommend OP to all.

I think I feel a little better. When I read about oil pulling I figured I had absolutely nothing to loose and hopefully a lot to gain - I have a lot of stomach and teeth problems. One thing I know for sure MY MOUTH FEELS MUCH FRESHER

Oilpulling user from USA

Started it because of a much needed detox and it is easy to do. My gums look better already, my teeth are whiter, and I am feeling better as well. I also have my husband and 14 year old son doing it.

I have been doing this wonderful treatment for two weeks and feel that I ought to let people know my experience. During the first week I had to go to the bathroom more than 4 times a day and was worried that this might continue for as long as I continue with the oil pulling but I persisted and lo and behold it stopped even though I increased the number of times doing the oil swishing. I guess that was a lot of inflamation that could not be pulled up through my mouth. I did not experience a lot of phlem since I do not have a cold or sinus problem. I only feld my nose become runny - mostly watery and my eyes blurry because the oil was pushing out whatever stuff but more watery liquid. You can only use your imagination to know how I now feel. Clean as a whistle and this is just the feeling that I am describing. I have so many other positive things that happen - I feel that even though I sleep less hours, still refreshed upon awaking and then I have this wonderful good feeling of well being - its like as if a cloud has been lifted and i feel I can conquer the world. I eat the same kind of food - no change in diet - and the food tastes better. I think that my taste buds have been given a cleaning and i can enjoy the tastiness of food. Best of all is that my face is indeed glowing. I do not want to make any claims on arthritis since I am still having some or rather a little pain but when it has completely gone I will update this. For the past 6 months I have had carpal tunnel and I was also diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my knees. Since the past two weeks I am feeling the pain has lessened (not totally) but I know this is because of the oil pulling. Finally, I have severe allergies - hives- and have been on several medications for years. Prednisone, allegra, zyrtec to name a few. Presently I have managed to get rid of all my medications and use only claritin. However, since I started the oil pulling, I have my claritin box on my table untouched. I am happy to report that I am not too sure about this since I have had to battle these allergies for more than 20 years and now this little routine has now made it possible for me to enjoy a day without any itching to date. I am holding my fingers crossed on this one. I have called/emailed all my friends and family to tell them about this therapy - some are skeptical and others are trying it - with very positive results. One of my sister's friend in Toronto who suffers from Wegners disease has told her that since she started one week ago, her tiredness has disappeared. I am going to end here.... I am happy to say that I will continue this and only stop if I have anything adverse happen to me. I have done this oilpulling 3 times a day these past 3 days. My mouth is clean as a whistle and I feel like whistling. thanks to the doctor who discovered this. I will talk to you in a hundred years.

According to my naturopath, the oil pulling has been and continues to be beneficial to my healing process. He tests me kinesiologically, and one of the things that prompted me to start OP'ing was being told that I had a large amount of necrotic bone in my mandible. The evidence will be indisputable in 11 more months when I have my panoramic mouth xray repeated!!

This is such an easy, uncomplicated item in the regimen I am following to reclaim good health. My teeth are whiter and are slick and clean (in the past I've had a LOT of plaque which would build up from cleaning to cleaning). I can hardly wait until my next dental cleaning to see the reaction.

Both my teenage daughter and I are currently oil pulling; I started about three weeks ago and she started five days ago. I pull three times per day using sesame oil and sunflower oil; she does it twice a day and only uses sunflower oil. We've both seen positive results. I've noticed: My teeth, which were becoming translucent (due to osteoporosis), seem to be less translucent more creamy white. My hair initially got very oily, which has never happened in my life before. It was one of my first indications that oil pulling definitely had internal effects. My hair has since stopped being oily, and just feels softer. My headaches, which I've suffered from for over twenty years (food allergy related); have diminished and I feel clearer and healthier than I have felt in months. Im not saying OP has taken them away 100%; I had one the other day. But, they are much, much better.

My skin feels softer. My joints feel more stable. I noticed the other day that went I went downstairs I was doing it feeling much more stable. In the past my knees in particular have felt "sloshy" and unstable, capable of sliding out of alignment with a very painful twinge. I had developed the protective method of approaching going "down" stairs at a bit of an angle and always fairly slowly. That's why I took myself by complete surprise when I realized the other day that I was suddenly going down stairs straight on and feeling very stable during the descent. The juries out on the effects to my joints because it seems very early in the OP game; but so far it appears the oil pulling is having a positive effect. On the down side, after the first two days of OP, I got a mouth full of cankers (very unusual for me); I almost quit the OP, but made myself suck it up and continue on.

I used a topical canker medication and in two days they were all gone. I never stopped OP and Im very glad I continued. As for my daughter: She was just coming of a horrendous list of illnesses: strep, sinusitis, bronchitis, viral meningitis and mono (all in the past month!) It was clear her immune system was at an all time low and she was having a horrible time trying to get out from underneath all these maladies. I convinced her to OP to try and remove toxins from her body. The mono had her sleeping 16-18 hours a day! She has most definitely been feeling better from the OP and her skin has improved (which has driven her on to want to continue OP) .a good thing in my opinion. Its really too early to make any other assumptions about her state of health as related to OP as shes only been doing it for a week.

I notice that I have had several bowel movements per day since I started and with each there is a lot of "white transparent things" that have been bugging me for over a year. I notice a definate better mood, happier, upbeat (inexplicable) as my husband is away on business for the last week and will only be back in 3 weeks !!!!!! The taste of the oil is definately something that is palatable and for some reason I keep on looking forward to doing it. Strange but definately nice, Im a medical practioner and I cannot explain the feelling.

Well I found this forum and started OP in early December. I had BAD pockets (I blame it on genes--mom with false teeth at age 16, dad with missing teeth and partial at an early age) I also never saw a dentist until I was out on my own at age 22. Soooo started OP with sunflower and switched up between it and Coconut. Yesterday I had my cleaning...my pockets that were 6's down to 3's. My 5's down to 2's!!!! My whole mouth was 2's and 3's and only 1...4 :-) My hygenist was freaked. She kept repoking me with that probe to ensure she was getting the correct reading. She said I even had some gum tissue that was recessed, is not anymore. My mouth is nice and pink and looks healthy and teeth are white... She wanted me to see the dentist because she was amazed by my turn around but she was very busy so asked me to return the next day which was today.

The dentist re-poked me and got the same measurements for my pockets. SHe was pleased...They put me on a 4 month recall and I am going to start OP twice a day now to see it I can nick that 4 in the bud... I have done it faithfully since I started and not missed a day. I sometimes would add a drop or two of either tea tree oil or Oregano Oil...I feel positive about my teeth changes and OP...Neither or them had ever heard of OP. My dentist was quite inquisitive about it and wants to research it a bit...she believes in alternative health methods and didnt talk it down...so thats a good thing...otherwise, I think I would have gotten a little defensive with her and never returned...

i have been pulling for about two weeks now. have experienced a lighting in the color of my teeth. my gums are slowly returning to a pink stage instead of red with no bleeding or sensitivity to them when i brush. the yellow coating on my tongue is reduced by about one third and my teeth have tightened up so much that i had to find a finer dental floss to get between them. i have also started coughing up mucus balls that would not come up before with out the use of mucinex and my sinus are draining and clearing up. this is a must do even more important than brushing in mho. i have used coconut, olive, castor and sunflower oils and sometimes add a drop or two of either oregano, peppermint or grapeseed.

Since I started oil pulling, I don't have those rough spots on my elbows, knees, and heels. The callouses on my toes are almost gone, and what is left is soft, not hard. My teeth are all the same color now, and I have a brighter smile. I am diabetic and have had a lot of problems with gum disease, but now my gums are healthy, no teeth hurt, and like I said, my smile is nice! I don't know if they are whiter, but they are just a nice even color that I like. My dentist is gonna flip when he sees how much better my mouth is! YAY!!!

I've been oil pulling for a bit over one month, usually twice per day, morning and evening. I was surprised when I first heard about it, so I read some threads here and I read Bruce Fife's book. Then I bought a quart of organic sunflower oil. To date, my gums are much firmer and have stopped bleeding. My mouth feels cleaner. Sore ankles and feet (probably caused by poor circulation) feel much improved. There are other mild improvements I'm not yet ready to mention. Waste of time? Not at all. The firmer gums and cleaner mouth alone are worth the small effort. I just pull oil while getting ready for work in the morning or while reading the Internet in the evening. It's no problam at all.

I am a 60 years old woman. I have been in and out of nutrition and alternative healing for more of those 30 years. Never in those 30 years found anything as amazing, as easy as oil-pulling. I started oil-pulling about a month ago. The result I have already received are truly amazing. When I started I was in the middle of scheduling my 5th back surgery in 10 years. I had developed severed foot drop. I have not had the ability to "heel-walk" for the past 18 months. I had no ankle reflex in my left leg. have had 10 years of chronic pain and am on a regime of pain killers, muscle-relaxers & anti-depressants. I am also a very active rock climber with also over 30 years of mountain (alpine) and rock climbing passion! So here are the little miracles I have already noticed within a month of oil pulling. I tell you about myself only so that you can understand the dramatic, almost unbelievable extent of the miracles that I have witnessed in the last 4 weeks of OIL PULLING. Day 1 - 3 I found it fairly nauseating at first to have the oil in my mouth. Now I eat a little of the oil as I begin - when the coconut oil (my oil of choice) is melting in my mouth.

I kept doing it because from the very first time I did it I noticed something. At first it was just a little relief of the nagging low grade jaw discomfort. Days 3 - 7 I noticed that my teeth were already a little whiter. The pocket around my tooth is smaller. My gums are a little better. My joints felt better. I have chronic knee PAIN and arthritis. I have blown ligaments in both knees. For the last 2 years I have been telling my knee doctor that I would do surgery after the NEXT appt. Just give me cortisone so I can go out and climb and bicycle and walk. Well OIL-PULLING right now out-performing cortisone. Days 7 -14. My teeth keep getting whiter. I have a porcelin crown that was matched with my tooth color. It had come out a little lighter than my regular tooth. Now at 2 week OIL PULLING my other teeth are a light as the crown. My gums are tighter.

More impressive my knees get better. For at least the last 3 years I have limped a lot after sitting down after exercise. It has been difficult to walk down a flight of stairs after an hour of non-impact aerobics. At about 10 days I coughed once and this glob of thick yellow stuff came out (sorry about the graphic description). I have never had bronchitis or pnuemonia problem. I coughed up stuff for about 10 days. I never felt sick. Over the 10 days the stuff that came out got lighter and less often over time as I continued to oil-pull. Days 14 - now. Now the miracles are really amazing. My foot and toe strength starts to return. By day 26 I can "heel-walk" Though I have had a MRI that showed a clear nerve impingement & increasingly arthritic changes in my spine, I had a EMG 4 days ago that showed my nerves were NOW ok. These changes are so well documented. NOW My knees are now great. I get up easily after exercising. I avoided surgery #5. Still have back pain that will keep me on a medication routine. But for the first time 6 months I can begin to reduce meds. The pocket around my tooth continues to close and open depending on the amount of OIL-PULLING. I don't cough much anymore.

My lungs feel lighter. Little things in life are important: My night-guard doesn't smell and taste a little icky anymore. I used to have to clean it all the time because it would yellow. Now it stays white, doesn't cloud a cup of water in 14 hrs. It doesn't smell or taste bad. Yesterday one of the two teeth that share the pocket cracked and a small piece broke off. When I flossed it out, I noticed a bad smell. In the last 24 hours I have OIL-PULLED multiple times. Today the "house-cleaning I am noticing is that the skin on my face and lips are breaking out a little.

I decided to OP after reading about it on the internet. I was looking up info for my husband on teeth and decided that we would both try OPing. Mine for my gums, and him for his one bad tooth. We have both been doing it for 3 weeks now and have had some good things happen from it. Him with sinsus problems, and me with gums and mucus. Two of our children have joined us in this newest adventure and one was having pain from where the dentist had filled some teeth and couldn't eat anything sweet (still trying to convince her on not eating sweets) without hurting and now after OPing she can eat whatever she wants without pain, the other daughter fights gum problems due to a disorder she was born with but now OPing is working for her. Now to convince our son to try it.
