Does Oil Pulling Work?

I’m 21 days into my oil-pulling experiment and all is well.  I seem to consistently miss two days per week for one reason or another.  I’m still using 2 teaspoons of coconut oil and swishing for 15 minutes, first thing in the morning.  This morning I oil-pulled while showering.  I’ve put some coconut oil in a mason jar that I keep in the bathroom for oil washing and shaving.  I scoop it out with my fingers, which melts it a bit and makes it easier to get started.  As I mentioned in earlier posts, I hate having to “chew” the oil to melt it.

As far as the positive health benefits of oil pulling are concerned, I am still experiencing a very clean mouth feel after oil-pulling.  My teeth look great and my gums appear healthy. My skin has looked better this week than it has a in long time, but I’ve been oil-cleansing and getting enough sleep, so I might be wise to attribute more than just the oil-pulling to my healthy glow.

As for the die-off symptoms of detoxification, those seem to have gone away now.

Check back in another week for my one-month update!
