I have been oil pulling since 9 months, everyday, first thing in the morning with sesame oil. Since then I experience strong mental sharpness. I have never been a morning person and it used to take me two or three hours to be able to function properly. My mood was also not the best one and I would experience anxiety during these morning hours. This is gone now. I am a completely new person as far as my ability to concentrate onto my tasks. My mood has greatly improved. Believe me when for years and years you have suffered from this morning fog feeling good again is like a gift from God. Yes I attribute this change to oil pulling as it is the only thing different that I have been doing since.What happens after I am done is that I have to blow my nose at least a dozen times. After this it is all clear and a great feeling of being awake. The best proof of what I just said happened this morning: for the first time in nine months I have not pulled. I was just totally out of sesame oil (now that I realize I should have pulled with olive oil). Well well! Immediately back to my old foggy self. It took me a good two hours to really concentrate onto the tasks at hand. Believe me I will never run out of oil again.
My wife has been pulling all along with me. She used to sneeze a lot (and I mean A LOT) this is hardly the case now.
So is oil pulling working for us? You bet it does. I have not felt that good intellectually since I was in my late twenties ( I am in my early fifties).
Many thanks to CureZone for having given me the opportunity to experience this.
I'm also in my early 50's and tryed OPing yesterday for the first time with Flaxseed oil (only thing we happened to have on hand). I also had a terrific sense of mental clarity, unusual sense of patients with things, etc. My blood pressure was also high 150/95. Immediately afterwards it dropped to 120/88 and stayed that way for the next few hours.
I woke up today also feeling better rested and not as groggy. My results impressed me so much that I did it again this morning after waking up. As other people report, even after my first pull it was amazing how solid my teeth felt - no looseness at all. This is cool - I'm sure I'll be doing alot of this from here on.
I had receded gums at one tooth, it's been that way for many years. I started OPing a month ago (every morning with sesame oil, some days sunflower) and I just recently noticed that the gum has regrown, there is still a tiny part of my tooth exposed but the difference is huge and pretty amazing (the root is now covered, there is just that groove that is immediately under the gumline that is still there). I didn't even expect this, I wasn't looking for it to grow back, I just happened to notice it has moved up considerably and couldn't believe it at first since I read everywhere that gums don't grow back once gone. They do with OPing!! I will report when it's completely healed (almost there:-)
Also, my teeth seemed to get whiter in the first week.
It's been only a month so I will report more benefits as they come.
I've been trying this oil pulling with olive oil and hemp oil, and WOW, how the heck does it whiten your teeth? It sure does, amazing. Really hard to keep it in for 20 minutes, I can last about 10-12 minutes swishing the oil around.
Is this my imagination, or does oil pulling really work!!!! Long story short, I got sick the beginning of 2004, bronchitis, ear infection, sinus infection all at the same time. Given antibiotic, got better. But sinus infection returned & continued to return every other month. If I wasn't on an antibiotic I had a sinus infection. March 2006 I had sinus surgery, got better, but not 100%, still had sinus infections every so often. Also, find out I'm allergic to wheat & dairy. Go on Allegra D & Nasacort. Allergies become managable & sinus infections not quite as often. Find this website regarding oil pulling a month ago. Start oil pulling 3 weeks ago today w/ Sesame Oil & I haven't taken an Allegra D since then. Use Nasacort, maybe every 3rd day. I'm a believer, I feel like a new person. I hardly have post nasal drip anymore, I can breathe easier, have more energy. I'm actually on my way to the health food store to get more oil!!!! Thanks to all the posters out there who convinced me to try this.
Yayyy! Oil of Oregano cured my gum infection :) AND saved me $150 bucks for a cleaning of only 3 teeth my Dentist suggested, and if that didn't work, he said I would have to take some antibiotics.
I just put the OOO on the affected area, and a few drops in my Sunflower Oil for Oil Pulling and Oil Pulled 2 times a day (I had stopped OP'ing for about a month, bad mistake) and WALA! CURED! The gum infection was totally gone within 6 days!
