Thanks to a friend's post on facebook, we started oil pulling just over a week ago, and are amazed at the results.
Our teeth have whitened considerably and are shiny and bright, like we just went to the dentist and got a cleaning. My sinuses, which always bother me, drained for the first three days I did the oil pulling, and are much clearer now. Brock's skin has cleared up an dlooks more healthy. Our 12 year old has had terrible problems with plaque. Even with brushing and flossing 3x a day, her teeth have perpetually had plaquey build up and discoloration. We have asked dentists about it, and have been told there is nothing we can do - some people just make more plaque than others. Now we know there IS something we can do. Her teeth are remarkably, almost miraculously different. They are staying SO MUCH cleaner, and look shiny throughout the day. She fought us about doing at first, but then later admitted that she had been praying for help with her teeth, and this seems to be the answer.
There are more helpful and informative articles on the internet about oil pulling than you could ever need. Here are two of them:
