I developed MCS over the last year or so and through all kinds of detoxing discovered oil pulling here.
After oil pulling for a few days I got an excruciating tooth ache. I wasn't even sure what tooth it was from. The dentist ex-rays revealed nothing, so i went home with pain killers. i made the oil pulling connection and know about healing reactions so i stopped pulling and the pain went away. I had a dentist appointment a few weeks later so started oil pulling again hoping to heal any problem. This time the pain was so bad that i was eating pain killers like candy.
The dentist replaced two fillings thinking it may have been a recent loosening. He replaced the back tooth filling and i begged him to replace the next one, just in case. I had a terrible reaction to the Novocaine (my eye blurred and I shook, but that's a different story). So i waited a while and started OP sesame oil and peppermint every other day, no pain. Then, every day and suddenly i noticed a white puss bubble next to my back tooth. It was frightening. There was no pain, so i drained it and swished with H2o2, Redmond's salt and peppermint. It went away. About a week later, it came back-same deal. Now it has come back every 3-7 days and i am oil pulling twice a day. It doesnt hurt and I feel fine, but it is awful to have infection in your mouth. BTW, That is the spot where I had my wisdom tooth pulled.
I don't have the $ for a cavitation surgery and frankly i am not convinced that this OP isn't an amazingly strong detox to suck this infection from way down in my jaw.
I am thinking I will give it a while and then go to my regular insurance paid dentist (who I am not crazy about)and let him do what regular dentists do in this situation. Your experience and advice is welcome!
After all the pain you've attributed to oil pulling its amazing you're still so dedicated. Remember, though, to try other oils if your not getting good results with what you're using. I've got to wonder if the peppermint has anything to do with it but just a guess.
The jury is still out (at least around here) on whether oil pulling "pulls" toxins and other stuff from the body. But it's pretty clear that all types of germs in the mouth can be dealt with by oil pulling. Abscesses, tooth infections, gum disease can be dramatically treated with OP. In fact all by yours truly at one point or another.
If you try mixing in as many drops of oregano oil as you can tolerate with your usual oil, you'll find infections get dealt with much quicker. Oregano oil is a powerful germ killer. But keep it all up - I'd put big bucks on daily oil pulling doing more for your oral health than any number of dentist visits at the end of the day.
Yes, OP can draw out an infection. This has been posted many many times. Have you thought about Oil of Oregano instead of the peppermint? It's a powerful antibiotic. Use for 10 days only though, just like an antibiotic.
Just think about it. If you had that infection lingering in your gums, most likely you were introducing it to the rest of your system, without even knowing you were doing so. That heavy duty bacteria could cause so many other problems systemically.
Now you are pulling it out and spitting out the bacteria.
All I can say is....good for you!!
I know others on here that have had infections, and I'm hoping they will come around and talk about their experiences as well.
Thanks for the response. Detoxing is so eye opening. No one knew i had a gum infection. Doing coffee enemas revealed all of the parasites and some worms that i had. To look at me, I am perfectly healthy! Then suddenly I had Multiple Chemical Sensitivity...
When My MCS was at its worst (it is 85% better now) I had elbow pains and eye twitching and my lungs have had issues, 1 asthma attack and general lungs not feeling great.. I looked up tooth meridian and elbow and lungs and sinus are on that tooth area.
so interesting. I am counting on this gum infection ending soon...
Hi! My names Tyler. I'd like to know more about this as I apparently have an infection in one of my teeth close to the front. And it sucks cause my dream is to be an actor. I've been oil pulling with clove oil and oregano oil for about a week now. And I feel like it's healing it right up. Any suggestions? I'm going to do everything I need to do to avoid a rc. Please feel free to pm me or reply back on here. Hope to hear back from you soon. Thank you so much.
"No, if it could no one would bother having surgery."
Only if everyone knew about all the benefits of oil pulling would that be true. And we all know that couldn't be further from the truth. OP pulls all kinds of nasty stuff out of the mouth.
Anyone with root canals should be oil pulling - and using a few drops of oregano oil at least once a week. I even rely on pulling oregano to absorb throughout my body and kill germs instead of antibiotics when I'm sick. It works faster, better, and is WAY healthier than oral antibiotics.
So if the oregano can absorb throughout the body, you know anything in the mouth/jaw area would absorb much more. Try it and see.
