I wrote this same exact text in another forum, but curezone is really the reason why I am feeling great today, and it's all because I found the oil pulling forum! You can literally find my previous posts and see my skepticism that are over a year old and man did it pay off! Here is the full text:
Okay, first off, coconut oil has basically cured my sinus problems, but I have to follow these very precise procedures to make it work. Other people seem to have success with other oil pulling methods, I am just telling you how it cured me by following this strict procedure: The first thing is
that coconut oil has to be pulled in the morning in an empty stomach for 20 or more minutes. I used to have a sticky slimy mouth with blood oozing out in between my teeth when I wake up in the morning. This is also in addition to badly receded gums. I can tell that there is A LOT of germs in there because of the rate of hydrogen peroxide bubbling up in my mouth after I wake up is REALLY FAST. Now that I oil pull in the morning with coconut oil, the slimy, sticky and bloody mouth in the morning is 90% gone! I mean really. It is literally the best thing that has ever happened to me. I have sinus problems throughout my life, and coconut oil is literally controlling my sinus problems! I suspect that the germs in my mouth whenever I wake up in the morning literally climbs up to my nasal passage and causes me to have uncontrollable sneezing through the day, and MAN I do mean unbearable, uncontrollable sneezing. I was literally miserable every 2 weeks. Imagine, appearing to have a cold every 2 weeks for many years. It was terrible!!!!!
Anyways, the reason why I can tell that it HAS to be coconut oil in the morning, on an empty stomach, even before I drink anything is because my dirty mouth and sinus problems came back if I did it any other way. Once, I oil pulled with coconut oil in the morning and sesame oil at night. When my mouth cleared, I gave credit to the sesame oil, so I pulled with sesame oil in the morning and at night, and the dirty mouth slowly came back, and 3 days later, I was sneezing uncontrollably again. It took me awhile to figure it was the coconut oil, but I'm glad I figured it out, otherwise I might be sneezing to this very day.
At one point, I even tried oil pulling with coconut oil at night, without the morning, and the mouth problems started to slowly come back. I had to figure out that to make oil pulling work, it HAD TO BE PULLED ON AN EMPTY STOMACH during the morning. Wow. So that is basically 2 hurdles that I had to overcome. The first was figuring out that it was the coconut oil and not the sesame oil that cured my mouth problems, and on top of that, I had to figure that oil pulling had to be done in the morning on an empty stomach! Whew!
Also, I'd like to point out that some people on curezone had mentioned thicker hair and hairs turning back from gray to dark again. I'm not sure if oil pulling did this for me, but I suspect it is. Some of my shed hairs literally have half black, half gray! With the root of the hair on the black side of course, so it is turning black. That is amazing! I do have pictures to verify of course. So, yea, I would never stop oil pulling. Oil pulling has cleansed my mouth, cured my sinus problems and it looks like it is making my hair darker again. Amazing. simply Amazing! Anyways, I hope my story helps you guys out. There are some details that other people might have forgotten to say, like how IMPORTANT it is to oil pull after you wake up.
In the end however, it really is 90% cured. I really have to oil pull every day because if I stop, my mouth WILL revert back to being bloody and germ filled, and that in turn will climb up to my sinuses and cause me to have sneeze attacks throughout the day. So, is it really a cure? More like maintenance. I can see the gum pockets slowly closing up, but I mean at this rate compared to how much it has receded, it could literally take years. But it's okay, because first off, coconut oil is cheap and second of all, and more importantly, I don't suffer from sneeze attacks anymore! That in itself is reason to oil pull every day. I mean, if you guys ever suffered from what I felt, imagine the bridge of your nose feeling hot, inflamed, irritated and sneeze 7-8 times every 3 minutes and feeling that burning itchiness, throughout the whole day. THAT's what I felt. And oil pulling has controlled it really well.
Do I still feel the nasal irritation throughout my nose. I mean, I still feel vestiges of it. I can still feel the inner membrane still bulge out just a little bit, but believe me, I'm not sneezing anymore. Remember, I've had this since I was 11 years old. This has been a chronic problem for me. And to control this symptom simply by oil pulling 20 minutes in the morning and 20 minutes at night is much worth it than to have a sneeze attack for 24 hours every 4 or 5 days!
Thanks. I was literally skeptical about this a year and a half ago. You can literally go back to my previous posts many years ago and see it right there. Sesame oil DID NOT work for me. It may work for other people, but it didn't do one iota benefit. It really took some experimenting. I only wish some people on curezone would write in a little more detail of what their symptoms are, and how the cured, or managed it. It takes a lot of time, but when they write their stories in great detail, then it can literally make a world of difference. If I did not continue experimenting, then oil pulling as a remedy would literally been thrown out the window for me.
So anyways, it feels great. No more sneezing, or at least much much fewer.
Totally agree! It's so helpful if people post in detail about what they're trying/experimenting with. Two (of many) great things about natural medicine is
1) its so safe that you almost never hurt yourself experimenting; and
2) there are so many different roads to the same results. People think in terms of one illness, one cure - which couldn't be less true.
So we need to constantly experiment with alternatives and document in detail when something works or doesn't so we can all figure this stuff out. Good job!
Thanks for sharing your great results! From your description, it sounds like using a neti pot would be helpful also. I haven't tried it myself, but my son has respiratory issues and says the neti pot makes a big difference.
Pull on! I know I'll never stop, myself. Just wish I'd started a lot sooner (like when I was a kid)!
Thanks. I'm glad you enjoyed my post. I tried everything! And I mean everything, from hydrogen peroxide in my nose (made it worse), to neti pot (you can tell it's making it worse), to even urine therapy. I have to admit, the urine makes your skin smooth! None of those worked for my sinus problems. That is not to say that your sinus problems is the same as my sinus problems. I believe my sinus problems are rooted in a dirty mouth. When I awake in the morning, the germs fester and get collected after several hours of sleep, and it crawls up into my nose as I awake. I can feel the burning and irritation in my nose only after I awake. If my nose survived the initial morning, then I am fine throughout the day. But, my nasal membrane could only put up with the oral germs for a few days and it would get inflamed and then I would have the sneeze attacks throughout the day. It was horrible! Oh yea, one last thing, high doses of vitamin C helped as well, but the real difference was the coconut oil.
So yes, I am trying to write in detail of what I went through, so that way someone who may have suffered the same ordeal that I went through. The most important thing for me is coconut oil in the morning, before any meal or even a drink. This part seems pivotal. I have tried many variations of this with little success. I don't know why. Maybe you guys experienced something great outside of my prescription. Sesame oil didn't work for me nor sunflower oil.
Anyways, I hope you guys post more of your chronic problems and explain in DETAIL how you guys remedy it. I don't think a simple, "coconut oil cured my oral problems" type of post would suffice. It's too few information with too many variations for anyone to correctly remedy themselves. It would be so beneficial for us all. Thank you Curezone for controlling my sinus problems and allowing me to go through life without sneeze attacks every few days. Thank you all for sharing your stories that has allowed me to get through life without this uncontrollable sneezing. Thanks again and live healthy!
great stuff...ive suffered with sinus problems since i was 18 on a daily basis
(31 yrs old now)...2 surgeries and every medicine possible...def gonna give this a try...any specific coconut oil brand u recommend?? much appreciated
It doesn't really matter. I used Aunt Patties for awhile but it was sweet and it was expensive. Trader Joe's organic coconut oil works well and the price is really reasonable for a first time oil puller at 5.99. But I buy coconut oil in the gallons now because I find it so useful. I bought a 5 gallon barel of organic coconut oil for like 160 bucks I think. I did the math on it when I first bought it and it came down to like 4.16 a jar when you compare it to Trader Joe's. I know I'm going to use that much so I just went all out and bought the biggest one I can find.
I got it on ebay. I simply typed organic coconut oil in the search bar and arranged the items to be listed into the most expensive shown first while the cheapest are in the last pages. You still have to do the math on it because the most expensive one doesn't always come out to be the least expensive per volume. I bought the brand Tropic Traditions. They have 2 brands, the gold and the regular. Both are organic, but I bought the regular. So far it works quite well. The gold is supposedly unrefined, more pure I guess, so I am led to believe that the one I bought is refined. The cheaper one works just as well as the trader joe's.
Great value. I was sent a big barrel and I scoop up the coconut oil into a plastic container and whenever I use up the plastic container, I simply refilled it. Hope it helps, and happy pulling. By the way, if you have the time to reply, what ailments do you have and how is your treatment coming along?
Thanks for the tip. I know Tropical Traditions is a good brand.
I have had issues with my gums and this is much improved. I've been adding CoQ10 liquid to my pulling, per Mr. Cuddly's advice. I've also been using the products at calciumtherapy.com which are specifically for this, and really streamlining my diet and supplements. Where there's a will, there is a way to healing, as you yourself have discovered. Onward and upward!
