What I wonder, though, is if the water pulling will give the same energy boost and other health benefits that are non-dental that oil pulling gives (I'm convinced the body absorbs some of the EFAs from the oil sublingually). I may have to test it out myself, a week of pulling with water and a week with pulling with oil, and see.
I've pulled with distilled water before and my mouth didn't feel very clean. I actually had bad breath and my teeth didn't feel as clean. Once I went back to Oil Pulling, that changed (teeth whiter, fresh breath).
