Hubby and I are still OP'ing and loving the results. Starting to see whiter teeth. Skin feels a little moister.
And YHWH said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for food. Genesis 1:29
I tried OP before...
With sunflower oil, and I had mediocre results. I felt a weird pain in my kidney area while I was OPing, but that was about it. And the taste was awful.
Today, I got some cold pressed organic extra virgin coconut oil and just now tried OPing (I had to microwave it for a few seconds, but since medium heat melts it, it liquified quickly without getting warm). I felt that weird pain in my flanks (kidney area) again and when I was finished, I went into the bathroom and was amazed by my teeth! I came downstairs and flashed them to my hubby who said, "your teeth look shinier or something." I told him about OPing and now he is in the living room OPing with coconut oil as we speak.
I am going to keep this up and let everyone know how it goes.
I'm using Sunflower Oil for O.P. right now.
We started with coconut oil, then sesame seed oil and now sunflower oil.
I've been looking in my mirror to see anymore changes in my skin and my teeth, well i'm shocked, i had small cavaties inbetween my front teeth not too bad but you could see several dark shadows there.
I just finished looking at my teeth and those dark shadows between my teeth are gone and my teeth look whiter and straighter
Who says i need to go to the dentist to get my teeth cleaned i'll save that money and no cavaties, WOW this is a GREAT!!!!!
My skin is looking more alive and healthier than before i started doing o.p.
Has anyone experienced any changes in their weight?
I'm still looking for that one.
irishserra...please don't microwave the oil! It changes the cellular stucture of the oil.(well, anything cooked in the microwave, really...) Just put the jar in a warm pan of water
hmm... well im still OP but trying not to feel discouraged. my teeth are still hurting, those two at the back, and are at the point actually where now it hurts to brush them, whereas before i had to poke them directly. &im starting to get a really sore spot on my gum line on the opposite site that REALLY hurts to brush. im not seeing results in my skin, not even my elbows or heels or anything.. its not making my teeth that white, and although im sure this is unrelated it seems as if im GAINING weight.
NO idea what to do! ill keep trying it b/c i wanted to try it for a month to giv eit a good chance.
i hope im just a late bloomer or something, i want so much for this to help my teeth.
I considered that later. This morning, I ended up just taking a spoon of the "solid" oil and tossing it in my mouth. It pretty much liquified immediately. I wasn't thinking earlier. Yes, the microwave is baaaaaaaaaad.
Thanks for looking after me !
Just payin' it forward Someone recently enlightened me to the evils of microwaves... Plus in this heat, my coconut oil is liquid anyways!
I talked to my sister-in-law about micowaves and she finally got it through her head that they can destroy brain cells and damage other cells in the body, she took her's and cut the cord into tiny pieces and threw it away.
She was having memory lapses and i'm so glad she did.
They are EVIL and can destroy the body.
I have been oil pulling for about a week, twice a day. Whiter teeth, less tooth pain, lost 3lbs (may just be a coincidence) and best of all I am finally sleeping better! WOOT!
Hi D. Goddess,
I can't believe it when i look at my teeth they are much straighter and i can't see the dark spots where small cavaties were
I'm waiting for the weightloss, i did do some exercise this morning:) for some reason it's hard for me to get started back on my exercise routine.
I know that i will only see weightloss if i burn calories.
Good News, i'm happy for you
Ok, Ok, maybe I missed it - but I'm reallllllyyyy curious! WHAT IS OIL PULLING?
I do my oil pulling first thing in the morning.
I'm trying to work up to twice a day at least:)
I knew it was a miracle when my teeth starting getting straighter and the dark spot disappeared
Just to answer how much oil I used: about one table spoonful? I don't measure though, I just take a gulp from my oil bottle and if it feels like I could use more, I take a bit more.
Hope that helps!
