I'm on day 2 of a water fast and decided to start the day oil pulling (which I'm doing now). It seemed to me that it didn't break the fast since the oil wasn't entering the digestive system even if it was being absorbed by the body.
The reasons I thought I'd try is:
1) My mouth tasted pretty rank when I woke up;
2) I woke up with a minor but annoying headache (that I thought might go away with OP and so far has);
3) OP is an easy way of removing toxins from the body which is important with a water fast; and
4) Since OP is so powerful but also obscure, it may not have even considered before by the fasting crowd. Adding some omega 3 to the body while fasting might somehow ease the experience.
So I thought I'd experiment on myself even though it's a short 3 day fast and apart from freshening my mouth and maybe getting rid of fasting headaches I doubt much else would be noticeable.
I figured if anyone's tried this they'd be around here.. Anybody?
