yes. look at the concentrations in salivary glands. oil pulling = greater saliva production = changes in menses from the testimony of our female counterparts on the OP forum. there is a hormonal factor at work there and it involves halides. i would suggest that perhaps some of the benefit of oil pulling is the release of bad halides concentrated in the salivary glands.
i have another testimony and i am not sure where it goes. the Iodine increase for me has produced that old familiar drag on cognition - it is freeing up mercury in my body. thats why i have been having trouble keeping up with the discussion lately. i got an initial mental boost at first, but i am having difficulties i can only attribute to mercury. this also really fits with my experience with potassium Iodide a few of years ago. it was not my thyroid shutting down, it was acute mercury poisoning. it explains the brain fog/depression/drop in body temp. it also explains the candida bloom i later killed with Colloidal Silver .
