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!
