I have been oil pulling for a few days now and my acne is getting soo much worse. Does it just get worse before it gets better or am I getting too much oil? I follow the directions and pull for 20 mins and spit it out. It is white and clear. What shall I do about this?? Should I keep pulling? I need advice.
A couple of years ago my friend suffered from really bad skin. Then again, she ate a few sweets here and there and drank and ate food containing dairy. She suffered with bad skin for years. She went to all the 'claimed' best skin doctors to provide special creams for her. None of it really made much difference.
I suggested doing a juice fast indefinately. I did a water fast while she only drank blended mixed fruits. 2 days later, her skin was better than it had been in years. Unfortunately she gave up after so we never got to see what more the juice could have done for her.
Thank you for your advice. I know I need to start juiceing more often butI can't find all the parts to my juicer. I may have to buy a new one but I can't afford it right now. I have been drinking distilled water and it seems to be helping my skin. I have taken a break from oil pulling just temporaily because I have a big event coming up and I want my skin to look nice. Since I took the break on oil pulling my skin seems better. I know I need to get back to doing this again and I will soon. I know it was helping my gingivtis so I know it works its just getting through the healing crisis detox part that is hard. I don't drink milk because my son breaks out in eczema from it. He is still nursing at 18 months and I plan to nurse him until he is 2 or shorlty after that depending on when is ready. I do have a slight problem with eating dark chocolate several times per week. I am over weight especially in my stomach area and I am trying to lose it but it wants to stay on the tummy. Any tips on getting rid of a tummy????
My skin got worse before it got better, which was a LOT better. I had had some really horrible breakouts since my daughters were born and OP really helped with that.
My doctor told me at one point that pregnancy and nursing can really alter your body chemistry and cause things like gallstones, bad skin and the like. I feel like OP was really helpful with de-congesting me all over, though especially around the face/mouth/head area.
I am sure your symptoms will go away. Iodine is helpful, too!
The adverse reactions to these thereapies are commonly known as Herxheimer reactions and occur as the body begins the cleansing process. This process frees toxic materials in the bodily systems, and for a short time appears to worsen the symptoms. If a person stays with the therapy through the Herxheimer reaction, there is usually a promising result that follows.
There is little doubt that adult humans are infested with parasites and loaded with toxic materials we are exposed to in daily routines. Methods for reducing parasitism and toxin exposure are invaluable in any recuperative therapy attempted.
I have found oil pulling helpful, yet curious. Others around me have seen things like severe headaches and chronic snoring eliminated, while I have suffered from several Herxheimer situations even though I felt entirely healthy before starting. ...I envision these reactions as eliminating future problems that were building in my body.
Thank you for letting me know about that term. I always called it the healing crisis . I have expereinced Herxheimer many times when detoxing. Even when I started drinking distilled water I started to go through it for nearly 2 weeks off and on. Now I feel great on it though. It seems to really flush my system as compared to other waters. If I go back to oil pulling, how long will the acne get worse before it gets better? I am on a parasite cleanse now and having good results. I have not seen any parasits in the toilet but I know its working because I am nursing my 18 month old and he is getting cleansed too. There were worms in his diaper 2 times soo far. He must of gotten them through me in uteruo or nursing or from the cat. I am not sure, but they look like roundworms. My ND said a parasite cleanse would be fine to do just to do it slowly and just to keep an eye on his stools and if they became too loose too often then to slow down the cleansing dosage. I also looked up the herbs found in the cleanse and almost all of them are used normally to increace milk supply and it has certainly done that. I have a wonderful book called the nursing mothers herbal. It had all the info that I needed. The only herb in the cleanse that reduced milk supply was sage, but I have noticed an increace instead of a reduction so the man herbs that help to increace are enough to out weigh the sage. I am using parastroy. I am actually glad my son is getting a little mini cleanse.
I´ve just been thinking of trying distilled water and I have bad skin. Have you really seen inprovement that you link to the water? It´s really hard to get hold of distilled water here in Sweden so I´ve almost given up on it. But if it really gave me some good results i guess I could buy a distiller...Could you tell me a bit more about it!
Yeah! I noticed and improvement in my skin from drinking distilled water but I got more headaches until after about 2 weeks on it. It rapidly detoxifys so that is a temporary side effect. The acne came back with oil pulling so I have taken a break from pulling for the time being. I wish I could cure this acne.
I plan to drink it all the time. I feel better on it and I have a friend who has been drinking distilled water for 20 years and its done wonders for her health from keeping her more clean on the inside to controlling her high blood pressure.
Ok, then I really feel that I have to try! I just have to find it. I know that they sold it on gas-stations here before but I think thay´ve changed it to reverse osmosis water and I don´t know enough about that to drink it...
And if your friend has been drinking destilled water for 20 years it must be safe!
