I didn't know about this until recently when I was browsing through the coconut oil ( :wub: ) forum of curezone.com.

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. :sick:

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.

Read more about it here: http://www.oilpulling.com/

OP Forum: http://curezone.com/forums/s.asp?f=738&c=1

(From there, click on "R," "RN," or "BSA," all located under the title "Oil Pulling & Oil Swishing Support Forum" to read the most informative, helpful posts.)

More on OP and testimonials: http://www.earthclinic.com/Remedies/oil_pulling.html

Chemicals (molecules) come in two forms. Ionic and nonionic. Ionic chemicals are water soluble. When we detox our bodies, we drink lots of water to flush any unwanted toxins out of our body. WELL guess what? That's only half the picture. Nonionic molecules are soluble in body fat and cell membranes. *

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.

I was reading Sesame and Sunflower oils are the best to use but Sesame oil has a strong smell....would you taste that all day long?

Also, says for acne to do it more than once a day but on an empty stomach. How long after a meal does it take for your stomach to be empty?

Very interesing. I asked a friend who is good in chemistry if he thought this would work, and he said this technique (the oil) is used in removing certain types of organic things (toxins in this case) and it works very well.

Do you just hold the oil in your mouth for 10-20 minutes?

Yes, you swish the oil around in your mouth for about 10-15 minutes. Don't let the oil just "sit." Believe it or not, there are actually people who oil pull for as long as an hour, but there are people who believe this may not be such a good idea as the insides of the mouth are very absorbant, and so the toxins may be reabsorbed into the body if they remain in the mouth for too long; these people suggest oil pulling for merely 3-4 minutes. Simply rinsing with the oil is definitely not going to do any good.

There are always going to be nay-sayers. And I'm sure it is like everything else, it is not going to work for everyone. Even if it is only a placebo-effect, who cares?

I did this last night and this morning. It is not hard to do so I figured what the hell. My tongue is white and yellow today (even after brushing) so it is doing something, what I don't know. It is way too soon to tell.

Also, this Lisa Barger seems to debunk alot of things, including ear candling Ear Candles I have personally used ear candles and find them to be amazing. I even think it is really just the warmth but whatever ... I went from someone who had ear pain and congestion nearly everyday to rarely ever now. I try to judge ideas from my own experiences or from experiences of those in similar situations as mine.

A guy on another board completely unrelated to acne has had tremendous success in treating asthma doing oil pulling. He used to have to use lots of inhalers to keep it under control and says that now he has only had 1 attack in a month.

Again...he's not treating acne, but I thought it was great that he's had such good success with it to treat his asthma.

Evidently, there's something to it.

I have done it 3 days in a row. I used sesame oil the first day and olive oil the next two. Sesame and Sunflower are the ones I see mentioned the most but it seems alot of people use different kinds.

Only thing I noticed yesterday was my tongue was white & yellow :sick:

I've read it takes up to two weeks to see/feel any results :shrug:

I have a tooth ache and am planning to just give this a shot tomorrow. The hex effect was preventing me from trying it but to hell with that, tomorrow is ME + Coconut oil all the way. I'll report back if I notice well, anything..

Yeah, any oil is fine, but they suggest refined oils for some reason. I don't understand why they have to be refined. Does anyone know?
