I have another question. It may have been asked and answered somewhere in the past, but there are so many pages to read - I just can't read them all with my schedule the way it is.
Does anyone know how oil pulling would possibly effect one's cholesterol?
What about consuming the oils? Do we know what effect the oils have on our cholesterol oils?
What specifically even about coconut oils?
If there is a place where this is posted and anyone knows about it I'd appreciate the link.
Thank you for answering me. Sorry for the delay, I can't get on that often. I am interested in the information you have given me and I will check out the link. Thanks for looking it up.
Last 2 years my cholesterol total number was good, but my good cholesterol was low. I'm actually getting my blood taken tomorrow and I was just wondering if the OP would have any effect. I hope it has a good effect.
From other places I've read here on CZ I understand that it is best to get the diet in good shape before cleansing, and that is what I'm working on. I still have to read a lot more about cleansing before I try. I think I will probably try the Master Cleanse first, as was suggested to me for my sister on an earlier post. But I'm not quite ready yet.
Thanks so much for your time and support. I really appreciate you...c
My total cholesterol came back at 161. I don't have the breakdown with me, I left it at work, but my good cholesterol is still on the low side. 1 year ago my total cholesterol was 159, but that small fluctuation does not mean much to me. What is funny is that for some strange reason I had a strong craving for liverwurst and ate it 4 days in a row before I had my cholesterol checked. This is not something I eat often, maybe only once a year. I've read that liver is very high in cholesterol. I think that my cholesterol is pretty stable.
I do believe that oil pulling is helping me in many ways. I have had different sensations in the muscles of my face, neck and upper chest, feelings like you might have in your muslces when they are very tight and need to be massaged. When these feelings are strong I feel like I need to oil pull again and also massage these areas at the same time. It almost seems like the oil and the oil pulling action is drawing stuff out of the mouth. The oil pulling has so many good effects for me that I also plan on continuing this treatment with no plans of stopping.
Thank you for your posts & peace to you....c
