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.
Also oil pulling with a few drops of Grape fruit seed extract or Thyme oil, oregano or even tree oil ( just a couple drops) is amazing. I used both sesame oil and organic virgin coconut oil white makes the whites of your eyes super white. I have a root canal from a few years back that does not look infected on the xrays but hurts I the dentist said there is only one way to know is take it out. I know this has been making me deathly ill so I'm going to a holistic dentist who will refer me to his oral surgeon the the oral surgeon will NOT do a root canal he will do an implant I want this done as fast as they can do it.
Thank you for your story. I think it goes to show you that when you have a hidden tooth infection that is making your sick and the dentists cannot locate it, but you know it is a hidden dental infection the best way is figure out where the hidden tooth infection is start oil pulling today and it become very clear very fast which tooth is infected.
In response to what to do for the infection I would book ASAP with a biological /holistic dentist and get ozone injections into the site it will kill all infection on contact and ozone will kill all infection at the site One shot with my city dentist in 2013 cost 45. that is cheap just have it done, my dentist suggest four visits to be sure he killed the infection, I guess some people like laser to disinfect but I don't know enough about it

Last year out of no where I had a BAD toothache and since I have no insurance, the cheapest thing to do was to pay to have the tooth pulled. I ended up having dry socket which is the most excruciating pain I've ever felt...I've always said I'd have my children over before I'd choose to have another tooth pulled.
Well just recently (about 5 days ago) and suddenly the gum in between two of my teeth became swollen. It wasn't painful or uncomfortable it just felt weird, at first. Each day it would swell more, it became red, uncomfortable, painful to touch and bled while brushing.
I had no clue what it might be so I went online and happened upon oil pulling specifically with coconut oil. I became excited because I have an abundance of different extra virgin, unrefined, cold pressed, organic oils on hand and from what I read, I should get some instant relief. I did it for the first time yesterday and immediately after I spit out the oil one of my teeth next to the swollen gum began throbbing like crazy and the swollen gum was redder and bigger. I also developed a hard swelling under the throbbing tooth and a less intense ache down the length of entire gum under the tooth. Needless to say I did end up taking 2 Tylenol w/codeine just so I could sleep.
I'm hoping I had the reaction because the act of OP helps pull the infection to the surface. I will continue for a few days to see what happens. I swished with peroxide today before the OP but it is still painful and swollen (never a fever). I'm going to switch up the oil to sesame and add some tea tree essential oil and see if that helps. I will buy some oregano oil to try out as well.
Any thoughts on what you think may have been going on with my tooth before I started OP, and why you think I had the reaction after I OP are very much appreciated!
Sorry to hear that your not well. I believe that OP draws poisons /toxins to the surface and as it surfaces we are to react according. In my case I had huge boil that had to be drained. When I oil pull and get lump or bumps in my mouth .
I decide if it something serious go straight to dentist. In my case, I used essential oils and DMSO or MSM and DMSO on the area that is lumpy. I might even hold really warm salt water in my mouth, since salt is amazing to drawing infections, poisons to the surface and also has some antibiotic properties
