i have been oilpulling for 10 days. i love it. what i have done upon waking up, is use organic, extra-virgin coconut oil mixed with increasing number of liquid cayenne pepper drops (dr schultz brand) in the morning for 20+ minutes. for the first couple of days i had decreasingly less tartar than the previous day- but there was always something.
so, at night before going to sleep i have been clay-pulling before going to bed. it only takes 5 minutes and it does not matter if i have just eaten. it is a bit sharp but i like it. now i have almost no tartar than ever before- almost nothing.
my thinking is the oil pulling attracts oil-fat based toxins, bacteria etc where the claypulling attracts/absorbs the water based organisms.
the only toxic effect was on the 3rd day using coconut oil with cp, i had a sneezing attack (7 or so sneezes)and that is it. after that - everything is fine.
i think my breathing has become better to- both nostrils are open. in fact i think my non-existent sense of smell is becoming alive.
also, i am looking forward to seeing the bacteria in my mouth disappear and the problem tooth become not a problem.
