(this was written five months ago ... and I feel at least FIVE TIMES better than I did back then!!!!! I can't blame someone for not understanding it ... hell, I don't understand it myself!!!! I don't understand gravity either, but I'm sure glad it works. A lack of understanding doesn't negate the truth of matters.)
WHAT HAS OIL-PULLING DONE FOR ME?
Well, within the past month or so, the ONLY “physical” proof I have is the “oft heard” mouth/teeth transformation.
Yes, yes ... my mouth feels wonderful, and my teeth are white again. My jowls are tight, and my cute, little double chin is gone. My receding gum line is replaced with firm and plump, healthy gums. My sensitive teeth no longer bother me anymore. My breath is in a constant state of freshness, and I feel (oops ... feelings aren’t provable, sorry) like I can kiss everyone in my path first thing out of bed.
I have no physical/scientific proof that OPing has alleviated my anxiety & fears.
I have no physical/scientific proof that OPing has put a bounce in my step and a genuine smile on my face.
I have no physical/scientific proof that OPing helps me wake up every morning ... looking forward to a relatively PAIN FREE day.
I have no physical/scientific proof that OPing has promoted new hair growth ... yes, my bald patches are filling in and I no longer have to keep my head buzzed like GI JANE.
I have no physical/scientific proof that ya’ll aren’t insane ... or that I’m not insane.
Is it all in my (our) head?
Are we imagining our healthy diagnoses? Are our minds creating the atmosphere conducive to our healing progress? Are our symptoms psychological in nature rather than physiological?
Shit, I don’t know.
I am not a scientist, nor am I a medical doctor. I cannot contribute to the scientific discussion of this strange procedure called Oil Pulling. I get lost with all the scientific verbiage.
I’ll let ya’ll analyze the scientific knowledge behind this strange phenomenon ... meanwhile, I’ll continue to gauge MY progress MY way:
Through my FEELINGS.
I feel marvelous again.
I feel healthy again.
I feel relatively pain-free again.
I feel strong again.
I feel happy again.
I feel ornery and mischievous again.
I feel good again.
I feel energetic again.
I feel feminine & sensual again.
