Basically, you swish oil (cold pressed or refined is recommended) in your mouth, activating the enzymes in the saliva which draw out the toxins from the blood. Continue swishing for a while and spit out the oil; don't swallow because by then it will be overflowing with toxins.
I'm too lazy to go into more detail, so you'll just have to research it more yourself. But OP really does sound amazing, so I strongly urge you to check it out.

By oil swishing, you are doing the same thing for your body as when you drink a sufficient amount of water daily. You are giving toxins a medium in which to dissolve, then by spitting the oil out, you are removing whatever toxins came in contact with and dissolved into the oil. Using OIL is beneficial because it dissolves a different chemical class of pollutant/toxin than water. This is why you see healing first in the mouth, then later in different parts of the body. The toxins must migrate to the mouth before they can be removed with this method.
This is also why switching to a different type of oil will create a new cycle of healing/detoxing. After you've oil-pulled long enough to "stabilize" your toxin level, you've removed as much toxin as you can with that particular oil. By using different oils with slightly different makeups, you will be able to dissolve slightly different toxins more effeciently. It is not a matter of your body getting "used" to anything -- it has to do with the chemical qualities of the oil itself.
OP and Acne:
And I also was getting another pimple between my mouth and my chin on the left side of my face. I felt it coming for a day atleast and it hurt. I knew something was going on. The pain started monday night and lasted all day tuesday. By tuesday night I could feel a pimple coming up. It was still under the skin and my skin was a little red in that spot but there was no bump yet. I could only feel it if I touch or rubbed the area. I expected it to be huge by Wednesday morning but there was nothing there but a small red spot, not even a bump. It was still hurting but not so bad. It is now thursday and it is gone...yes, gone. It never even surfaced. Amazing.
It must be the oil pulling. I love pulling with the coconut oil but I get more of a healing crisis when I pull with sesame. For this reason I will stick with sesame for a while because it seems to be good for me in this area. I still eat the coconut daily and cook with it. I am also using the sesame as a lotion and a hair conditioner. Love it!
A friend who is very versed in cleansing/flushing etc. says that it was the Liver Flushes that completely cleared up his breakouts. I wonder if you have been OP'ing and sending toxins out through the skin and getting acne as a result if it is not time to take it to the next level and flush the crap out. He says that acne is proof of liver congestion.
I did have one of those monster zits others have reported (you may see an improvement, then a little "regression" -- which all have said is really a sign of healing). It went away very quickly and things have continued to improve.
I OP for 20 minutes and then spit it into the toilet. Then I gargle twice with Sea Salt in water; then brush my teeth with Tom's of Maine. Finally, I wash my toothbrush with antibacterial soap and rinse it well.
Things I've noticed:
Day 3 I broke out on the lower half of my face. I'm in my late 30s and still get pimples, but this had me quite worried since I had to go out into the world and have people see me looking like a pimply teen ager.
Day 4 a lot of mucous came out after OPing...it was sinus mucous. Also, I have natural ridges in my teeth that have staining in the ridges. Today I noticed that the staining (tobacco colored even though I do not smoke) is gone.
Today (Day 5) the pimples seem to be clearing up. I had more sinus mucous that came out and that I spit into the toilet.
These are only things that I know are happening, because they're extremely apparent. I'm wondering what other changes my body is going through. Regardless, I've decided to give OPing 1-2 weeks before I decide to go on or to stop.
OP and Eczema:
After browsing through many posts, I learned that many people would breakout once they started OPing, but they eventually cleared up in the long run because breakouts were signs of the detoxification process.
It sounds strange, yet very intriguing. I don't think it would cure acne, but it may help and would be great for overall health anyway.
So, what do you all think?
