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!
