I've recently started oil pulling once a day. However I would like to do it up to three times a day, but this is difficult for me if I have to wait four hours after eating. I eat a couple of hours before I go to bed.
My question is this: Is it harmful to OP after eating? Which is better, to forgo oil pulling after eating, meaning I would only do it once a day, or to be a little more lenient with the rules and do it 1-2 hours after eating, meaning that I could do it 2-3 times a day. Even if it wouldn't be as beneficial to OP after eating, surely, it's better than not doing it at all?
The question is why do you think you have to OP 3 times a day? And is this just for a few days or weeks or longer? Unless you're trying to do something specific like cure an infection with oregano oil drops or take drastic action on severely loose teeth or something, I think once or twice a day is more than enough.
I've OP'd not long after meals many times. If it's a light meal and you give it 15-30 minutes, it shouldn't be a problem. When you eat a bigger meal and pull right afterwards there can be some minor stomach upset - but nothing I'd call dangerous.
