View Full Version : Question about oil pulling and brestfeeding
05-05-2009, 10:17 AM
I read that oil pulling can bring up past illnesses and I have had viral meningitis 3 times in my 30 yrs. I was wondering if anyone had any advice on whether or not I should start this while nursing. It won't expel toxins into my milk, will it? I just don't want to start and then get really sick and pass it onto my baby. I did do my first oil pulling this morning so any advice would be much appreciated!

I don't have the answer, but I do know your intuition is off the charts as a new mommy especially as relates to your baby. If you're feeling any reservations about it, your first impressions are probably highly accurate. I would recommend suspending oil pulling or any detoxification & cleansing programs until you're done breastfeeding just based on what I know about cleansing. The bloodstream does tend to carry the toxic debris initially as it's brought to the surface, so it could mpact your milk and be transfered to your child.
