I just finished with hemp oil, coconut oil and then castor oil. 3 different times, 15 minutes each time.
This is the first time I've used castor oil. I've had the castor oil for quite some time, and I'm not sure if it is spoiled. Oh well. It wasn't the most pleasant tasting. I've tried a number of different oils, and this is first time that I've ever gotten a reaction.
My sinuses filled up. Never happened before.
Once a day for this one will be enough!
Does anyone know if it is OK to ingest castor oil? Want to know just in case I swallow some. I think there is cleanse that uses it.
Gerson Therapy recommends taking castor oil every other day, 2 tblspns, with a parasite cleanse/coffee enema. Just make sure it's a hexane free brand. I use Palma Cristi. And check out the Castor Oil forum here - I've just read some of the posts and it's amazing stuff! I think it works by not just pulling toxins but killing everything nasty it comes in contact with and very quickly. The taste reminds me of machine oil...
I started using castor oil for pulling 6 days ago. Had used coconut oil, safflower and olive oil. Started pulling back about 2nd wk of Dec. Anyway, the olive oil was great till it began to turn by teeth really yellow. I then switched to coconut, which I really like. The safflower is good too. But since I had castor oil in the house (as it's so wonderful for so many things) I decided to use it. This is what I found:
-very thick for 1st 10 mins or so and then thins out
-my teeth look whither than w/the other oils (coconut and safflower)
-I've got mercury fillings and w/the castor oil I began feeling a "sensation" around a molor that's filled for 3 days while using the castor oil--I did not get that w/the other oils
So what I'm thinking is, the castor oil is quite powerful and is perhaps pulling out toxins out in and around the molar cuz there's a filling there. So yesterday, I switched to the safflower and so today makes 2 days and the "sensation" around molar wasn't there. So I don't know for sure, but I'll go back to castor oil and see what happens.
Don't give up on the castor oil too soon. And several people on this forum switch oils every so many weeks or days or sometimes pull 2 and 3 times a day w/different oils. I think all the oils work on different things within the body. All I do know is my teeth look great since I've started pulling. Don't know why the olive oil turned them yellow but others have mentioned that too. I stick w/the oils now that are very clear in color. My complextion looks great too. That's one thing that has become very apparent within the past 3 wks. I also started brushing my teeth w/soap which added to the whitening.
When I was a kid my neighbors huge dog "Parka" used to show up out of nowhere (when we would open the door) and barge into our house. He run all over the place creating havoc and wouldn't leave until he got some food. We were the fat kids in the neighborhood and he always saw us walking around with fudge-cycle's and such, so he knew where to go. It was real annoying because he would usually show up right after we got done watching "Kung Fu" reruns on channel 38. I'd be busy kicking my little brother's ass "grasshopper style" and suddenly there would be this canine madness going on in the house. One day I decided to take hamburger bun and pour some castor oil on it. He engulfed it with glee... Then started dry heaving and ran out of the house. He never came back.
Is this post for me? I mean, because I found that post about the dog named Parka and the castor oil hilarious? (i.e. does the fact that it is right below mine mean you are responding to my post?)
Because it is a little sharp!
Mercury, by the 8th or 10th post in a thread the topic is often different from what it was when it started (and this post was originally titled "castor oil," and since this is a forum that deals with oils, I would say the story post was more apropos than many!).
Maybe I am having a case of "you spot it, you got it" -- I know I get annoyed, too, when the posts get way off-target, though I am sometimes a culprit on that front.
Reading through some other forums, I am really grateful for this one. I love that it's lighthearted and not personality-driven, but guided by principles of experience-and knowledge-sharing and helpfulness to the newcomer. I really appreciate that and I am glad you are all here.
i find that "sensation" around your molar quite interesting. dont leave us hanging on this one. i certainly would like to hear more about it.
a big problem of health is metal in the mouth. a lot of this problem, beyond elemental poisoning from mercury or nickel, is an electrical one. i think part of the benefit of oil pulling is the electrical insulation property of oil. i have a gold-capped molar and i feel that oil pulling is lessening its effect. i am about ready to pull it.
Update...I'm still using the safflower oil as I switched 2 days ago. And still, no sensation around the mercury filled molar--nothing. As I stated, the sensation was quite pronounced when pulling w/the castor oil.
I'm going to continue w/the safflower for another 3 days and then switch back to the castor oil to see if the sensitivity starts up. If it does, well then I know it's the castor oil. However, if it does start up, I won't know what to do about it. I'm in no position at present to start having my fillings removed and this molar has a huge mercury filling and the 2 teeth next to it also have large mercury fillings. This goes back to childhood when I had lots of cavities. Anyway, there's an awful lot of mercury in that area--3 teeth in a row.
If this is electrical, what exactly can one do especially if the fillings can't be removed? Also, I too have 2 crowns over root canals that have metal. Geez, I remember a couple times when oil pulling I experienced a real heavy metal taste in my mouth. I put my tongue rite on the metal part of the crown and could really taste metal. I've not experienced it since that time. Wonder why that is?
Obviously, the absolute best thing to do is remove all the "toxic" metals in one's mouth, but I cannot do that. I do feel, however, that I'm still reaping the benefits of oil pulling w/all this metal in my mouth. In other words, the pulling is pulling out many toxins, etc., right?
Hello, in regards to your oil pulling, I have found that sunflower oil works best, as it is the most tasteless oil I've found for this method. Castor oil tends to be an oil that may cause more of the gagging effect. If swallowed, it may just help your system as a cleanse, as it will just go through the body. Good luck to you!!
