    Good Morning Ande,

    Oil pulling sounds interesting. I haven’t gone on their site yet but I have a concern you might address.

    When one has tooth pain, I worry that ignoring that pain may cause a person to end up with a root canal/crown or having the tooth removed. As a past dental assistant, I don’t know if oil pulling is postponing or masking what’s really happening.

    Is the oil different looking after running the process for 20 minutes?

    Thanks, Ande. I hadn’t heard of oil-pulling before. It seems like a simple, inexpensive, straight-forward technique.

    Maybe Karen P. would feel most comfortable using it as a preventative before any problems have surfaced.

    Hi Karen P. Regarding your concern, oil pulling isn’t a palliative treatment. It’s not something that just masks pain. Whatever it’s doing is actually affecting healing. The first time I had tooth pain and started oil pulling and it took away my tooth pain, not long after, I had a dentist appointment and he took x-rays, and my teeth were fine, so my guess (and I’m NOT a dentist or doctor) is that the oil pulling works at whatever is causing the pain, not just covering the pain.

    And yes, the oil looks very different after you’re done–it’s milky and sometimes slightly yellow. Yuck.

    Another “side effect” I’ve noticed is my skin is MUCH softer when I’m oil pulling. But difference there. Which is nice. :)

    Good idea, Karen, on the preventative. As with EVERYTHING, oil pulling is right only when it feels like inspired action.

    Sounds interesting. I would like to give it a try.

    I have to tell you that I did not read the title and from the first few seconds of dialogue in the video… I thought “Oh no…she is not going to do a nettie pot on video.” :)

    LOL, Debbie. Demonstrate the use of a Nettie pot? Heavens, no! :) I considered oil pulling on the video, but decorum won out. :)

    I can’t say for sure, Mac, but I have read a really long list of things oil pulling helps with. So it doesn’t hurt to see what it does. I would give it several weeks of regular use, before you decide whether it’s working. It’s not an overnight fix. Good luck.

    Hi Magdalena (I love your name!) . The length of time it takes to heal with oil pulling depends on the severity of the condition you’re wanting to heal. Minor issues can resolve in a few days. Major, chronic conditions can take several months of consistent oil pulling. I hope that helps. Be well!
