The Barefoot Herbalist does not believe in oil pulling either. This modality is pretty much experiential, you have to try it to really believe in it. I think both Dennis Hardy and Barefoot have valuable information to offer. Just because I do not agee with them 100% of the time does not mean they have nothing to offer, or that I will avoid their forums. At least they do not come over here and cause trouble; we should accord them the same respect.
I was hoping oil pulling would help control the chronic pain I deal with daily. It did not help in that regard, but the benefits in clear sinuses, brighter vision and better teeth and gums make oil swishing well worth the effort. Hopefully, swishing will help all of us reach the ultimate goal of vibrant health and balance of the body.
Swishing and Hoping
Drooling and Spewing
Praying for health,
And the pain will be gone
