it has been, i guess about 10 weeks i have been oilpulling. been using coconut oil extra virgin supplemented with either oil of oregano or strong liquid cayenne pepper.
since i really did not have a baseline, the results are highly speculative. but i like the way i feel regardless of the lack of baseline.
for one thing, i took a 24 hour urine test for heavy metals and iodine and the results show- very low heavy metals and the iodine level is normal- low range. i am satisfied. i attribute the heavy metals good showing to oil pulling but then as i wrote- i have no baseline.
i had a cavity which was replaced by a composite. it was located in the lower wisdom teeth area. i was warned by the natural oriented dentist that it is possible i still may have an infection. she was not sure she was able to sterilize the gums of the tooth. if not, her recommendation was to pull the tooth out. i have occasional sensations there but with the op i think the tooth will be saved.
since op i have been more aware of my health which was good to begin with- did two liver/gallstone cleanses, one colonic and now doing a humaworm parasite cleanse (i saw worms and released once a large amount of white colored feces. it was either a large worm or something; or it was huge mucous element. the interpretation depends on who i talk to.)
i learned a particular brand of clay might stain the teeth and polishing is the way to go to restore its luster. but then i have not tried everything.
but i most of all i have learned to have the pleasure of learning about my body and learn new things for healing. i do not try everything on the threads but these new things are interesting and stimulating.
finally i keep in mind - i am healthier than anytime before. my congrats and thanks to the people in this forum who keep alive the idea of the hippocratic oath of "physician - heal thyself".
