I tried out Oil Pulling back in September. Here are the details on Oil Pulling if you do not know anything about it http://wp.me/p3wWp1-1Jt I gave it a try for about 2 weeks every day. I had worked my way up to 20 minutes a day and it made my teeth feel fantastic. After about 2 weeks I felt that my teeth were becoming very sensitive. All of the research I had done said that Oil Pulling helps with teeth sensitivity but I felt that it was causing my problem so I decided to take a break from it.
This past week as I am in my 2nd trimester of pregnancy I found that I was having problems with my gums. I ended up with a horrible gum infection. I had read a lot that this was just a part of pregnancy but there was no way I wanted to suffer with sore gum for the next few months. I decided to give Oil Pulling another try. With in 3 days my infection was completely gone. I know that it was due to the Oil Pulling since the infection was not getting better but worse. As soon as I started the Oil Pulling the pain lessened that day and was gone by the third. It worked better than I could have expected!
I am not going to go back to doing it daily but I will be doing it whenever I have any mouth issues such as infections, gum irritation or canker sores!
