I'm going to try this even though the single food I cannot stomach is coconut. Maybe the oil will be okay.

During extended periods of very high glucose - before insulin - I'd get completely dessicated including my mouth leaving gums inflamed. Resulted in one lost molar. Couldn't feel the exposed nerve and the whole thing was shot.

I'm trying bulletproof coffee this week anyway which recipe also calls for CO, I believe, so I might as well try this as well.

CO is not the only oil people pull. A lot of people report great success with - gasp - PUFAs like sunflower, safflower, etc.

For me, for many years, CO is kinda the staff of life. If you don't like it, I encourage you to try another kind.

Oh, and as an added bonus...here is my theory of why OP makes a difference.

1) When you put liquid in your mouth, the doo-hickie that leads to the lungs automatically slams shut. And, because of the liquid, you close your lips shut too. The inside of your mouth - normally a very aerobic place - becomes anaerobic very quickly. The bacteria and nasty gunk that lives in there is aerobic. It begins dying. You effectively suffocate it.

2) As you swish the oil, you salivate. Saliva + oil = something that greatly resembles soap. As it moves around, being sticky like soap, it gathers the dead and dying gunk. In fact, the longer you Pull, the thicker the liquid becomes. It can even solidify into a stinky lump. You are literally washing your mouth.

3) Most oils have health benefits (IMHO especially CO). I suspect you are literally washing your mouth with a form of medicated soap.

Does some good bacteria get gathered and removed with the bad? I suspect it does. Don't spend an hour watching TV and Pulling.

And, yes, if you have loose or old fillings, keep an eye on them. Has not happened to me, but people have reported finding filling components in the spit out gunk.

I used to have nasty floss-won't-clear-it tarter and lots of abscesses. These days it is difficult not to laugh while the dental assistant looks for something to clean.

I'll try it too, because there are times I waken with very dry mouth/throat due to CPAP seal going askew. My teeth are very healthy - prob'ly due to being widely spaced - I still have all 32 of them and very few fillings. No crowns or root canals or any such extensive work. But there's always room for improvement, right?

Oh, I know that special CPAP induced dry mouth! NOT on my 'this is fun' list.

Okay - it's an easy enough exercise . . . was expecting a lot of particulate matter but there was nothing of that sort. Of course, that's prob'ly because there's no place for particles to get caught between my teeth! It did seem like the used oil had taken on a yellowish tinge, since my Nutiva CO is so pristine white, so it washed off something!

I have tried oil pulling, I may have to try again. I used coconut oil the first time and I think I used too much. I tried sesame oil and it was too bitter, then I just kind of forgot about it.
