Oil Pulling: Day 21

Am I really on day 21?  I wanted to read this book before I started but I was too anxious to get started & never bought the book:

Oil Pulling Therapy by Dr. Bruce Fife

Oil Pulling Therapy by Dr. Bruce Fife

My gums are even pinker now.  My teeth look slightly whiter.  But I’ve got a coat on my tongue.  A thin, white coat is normal & healthy.  I’ve got a thick, white coat, mainly on the back half of my tongue.  If I remember correctly, that’s a liver or digestive issue.  I mentioned before that I’m detoxing my liver.  I’ve also started taking probiotics.  I can feel the difference in my gut.  I think my digestion is getting back to normal.  It was really messed up by all the antibiotics (not to mention nerve damage) I took last Summer for life-threatening infections.  The herbalist said it would take a long while to get back to normal.  I’m finally getting there.  I hope once everything is worked out, this coating will go away.

I haven’t noticed any health benefits I can attribute to oil pulling.  I was dizzy yesterday, my blood pressure seemed a bit low.  My skin is a getting clearer & brighter, I’ve been using apple cider vinegar as toner/astringent.  I’ve lost a few pounds (I had gained 5 in July!).  I feel the same, pretty much.  I’ll keep doing it, though.  If anything, I’ll have whiter teeth & pinker gums.

I should mention that I’ve only worked up to 20 minutes a few days ago.  You’re supposed to oil pull for 20 minutes every day.  That might be one of the reasons I haven’t noticed much.
