Oil Pulling

I tried Oil Pulling the other day (with Sesame Oil) and it actually caused a great deal of oral pain.  I had fillings done 4 weeks prior so I don’t know if damaged the fillings or what it did but my teeth were  extremely sensitive the rest of the day.  I think I’ll talk to my dentist before trying again.


Regardless … the process was a bit lengthy … swish for 15-20 minutes??  I was hard pressed not to swallow any of it.  My mouth did feel “cleaner” afterwards, almost like after a dental cleaning.  I don’t doubt that it’s good for your health but I’ll need to get past the oral sensitivity it creates.
