I love oil pulling and have been doing it for a few months. The only drawback is I am finding i produce a lot of phlegm afterwards. It feels almost like I have a throatfull of it. Does anyone else experience this?
That's fantastic. One of the benefits of OP is the pulling of phlegm from everywhere, especially your lungs. The drawing power is amazing.
After OPing for over 2 years, I still often spit out a bit plug of phlegm. What a relief.
That's why I always say that if you have any congestion, that you should OP back to back until you spit out zero phlegm. This has helped me stave off many lung type infections. I haven't had allergies for over two years, and I used to suffer from congestion from that.
OP is awesome. I have no idea how it does what it does, and at this point I hardly question it. I'm just happy that I even know about it.
Yes, I am rinsing with salt water after.
I am oil pulling three times a day at the moment. I don't think I can double up, but will try it in the morning and see if it makes a difference.
Thanks for your advice.
Three times a day? Yikes. I'd say you are being more than resourceful.
Okay...mucus in the throat? hmmmm. You only have that after you OP?
I have to think about this. It's not earth shattering, we should be able to figure this out. Have you ever had this before? Why do you think this is happening? Do you have major allergies? Do you eat a lot of dairy?
Something is making the OP bring this up. You are full of phlegm. Why?
I just re-started oil pulling again, I had stopped for a while. I am experiencing the same thing as the original poster. I start op'ing and then I have phlegm which I swallow and continue pulling. Sorry for being gross. But I was wondering what I should do in this circumstances. I get the phlegm after only a minute or two, and in the 15-20 minutes I must experience it 3 or 4 times.
Greetings, I have been oil pulling for a week or so and I think it is great!
Just a thought ... water ... I'm a runner and general health nut, but anytime I have extra phlem or get sick or plugged up or poor digestion, etc ... I start with more clean, clear water. I would consider upping my liquid intake. The phlem is coming from somewhere and is most likely trying to "escape" ... more liquids may make for an easier escape. Dehydration was one of my major problems when I was 0-25 years old. Once I became properly hydrated, many of my problems went away. Now I have more health problems, but am older and wiser :-) water has always helped in the long run.
