I didn't swish Monday or today (tuesday) but I still have diarrhea. I was swishing with coconut oil 3 times a day for 20 minutes at a time but had to stop because of diarrhea. Then I swished sesame oil 2 days but the diarrhea kept up. I need to stop this and resume when my bowels slow down!
Do any of you think I should also stop eating coconut oil for now? I'm not sure but it seems to give me the runs right now, possibly since swishing it. I used to eat tons of it without the runs. I've eaten coconut oil for 5 years or so now. I ate some yesterday and the runs seem worse today. I need to stop the runs and improve my magnesium and other mineral levels. These runs have lowered my mins!
I do not think that swishing is the culprit. I think you definitley have some kind of bacteria that is causing this. If you have a fresh fruit place near you, buy pommegranite (not juice) and eat the white part of the inside and not the kernels. It will take a while but that will stop your runs. Also if you take dairy, yogurt and rice is the best thing to eat.
Diarrhea can be caused by a number of things: too much fat in the diet; bacterial infection; viral infection; parasites; etc. OPing is food - you're just swishing food around in your mouth.
I don't know how long you've been OPing, but your ID is rather new to me, so you might want to start all over and begin OPing ONCE a day with a LESS POTENT oil - sesame or sunflower, perhaps. Using coconut oil three times a day is quite extreme for newbies (those under 6 weeks, I would say) due to the potent detoxification properties of coconut oil. Plus, three times a day might be over the top for some people who are just starting out.
Are you rinsing your mouth out with seasalt water solution after your pulls? Are you brushing your teeth with a non-flouridated cleaner (olive oil soap or baking soda)? Has anyone around you demonstrated flu-like symptoms of the type that you're experiencing? I'm not kidding - there is a very nasty and tenacious intestinal flu going around that just lingers and lingers. If you have been exposed to a virus, Colloidal Silver will kill it straight away - just replenish your guts with Probiotics.
I've been around here a while. I used to go by the #46511. Once you wished me luck and I replied and asked why or something like that and you didn't reply to that. One day I forgot to check the box to use a number instead of a name and from then on have used the name rather than the numbers.
I decided to OP today with Sesame oil for 20 mins. I don't think it's sesame that's causing my diarrhea. I could have gotten something from raw pumpkin seeds I got at the health food store. My immune system is very well and I don't often get the flu or colds, so this has been puzzling to me. I have tended to have a headache, is about the only symptoms I've had other than diarrhea, so it may be an intestinal bug. Something woke me up at 1:30 AM and I couldn't get back to sleep. I should make it a point to sterilize my cooking area and utensils too in case something may be on them that I could be re-infecting myself with.
I rinse with baking soda in water after OPing. I usually brush after meals with Vitamin Shoppe brand non fluoride TP.
Great idea to stick to Sesame oil for the first 6 weeks or so. I think I should go back on Sesame for at least a month at once daily and not change that unless I am diarrhea free.
I appreciate your advice! This is a great site! I will work swishing into my life one way or another!
Different folks often experience different things and sometimes they are directly attributed to detoxification, and other times it's just one of Those Things. I had a TERRIBLE fever develop, last week - one minute I was dandy, then next, I was raging at 102 degrees! It didn't last long and I pulled throughout the fever, even though it actually hurt to get up out of bed and move! At first, I thought it was a detox episode until I took my temp.
You might be experiencing detox symptoms, but I would imagine that the loose bowels might be a combined effect of detox and something else given the amount of time. And, since you've changed oils and you're feeling up to par, the former seems likely.
At any rate, it's great that you're feeling better and, perhaps, sesame oil might be the thing for you at this particular time.
