I was hesitant about oil pulling because I’ve had a problem with foul breath due to the quantity of coffee that I consume, like many others. I quickly recognized better breath and better oral health. The plaque behind my lower front teeth had broken down and felt smooth on a daily basis. My dental health improvements were the motivation for me to create a video documenting my 3-month experience, which you can see below.
Since then, I have made another video addressing the blatant misinformation in a oil pulling debunk video by Dr. Nemeth that you may watch below.
I won’t make any more videos unless I have another huge transformation from my 3 months of oil pulling video. With that said, I’ll keep this website and the area below up to date with pictures, new studies and other finds that I’ve encountered along my own oil pulling journey.
1.5 year update
- Here’s a side-by-side comparison of my teeth color before (when I first started), and 1 year after. They haven’t changed dramatically, perhaps if I stopped drinking coffee…!
- I began oil pulling right after my daily cup of coffee, which I usually have in the afternoon. It makes my mouth feel fantastic and really removes a major portion of coffee that I despised: rotten breath and stains on my teeth.
- I started buying coconut oil in larger containers (now using a 2.3kg Kirkland coconut oil container) because I used to go through the smaller ones every month or so.
Oil pulling is a great oral hygiene practice to add to your routine. Despite the fact that there are several doubters around oil pulling, I urge you to give it a try for a week or two and form your own opinion.
