I read this book and began oil-pulling about 2 months ago. Since then I have reversed documented nerve damaged and avoided my 5th back surgery. My arthritis in my knees is much better. I have lost weight and my cellulite is going away. My teeth are whiter, my gum tighter. I feel more energetic, happier and optimistic than I have in years allowing me to get off some prescription meds. This is a program that is completely "no harm - no foul"! Over the years I have spent thousands of dollars chasing health and relief of 10 years of chronic pain. This program costs maybe 25˘ a day and a minimum of 20 minutes. I am blown away. I have shared this book with my dentist, doctors, surgeon, friends and family. Everyone sees some change - some faster some slower. I have noticed the more you pull the more changes you see. This book is a must for those who seek health!!!!

After oil pulling with coconut oil first thing in the morning for 6 weeks(but I also brush and floss) my dental hygienist was flabbergasted at how my mouth and teeth had improved. No plaque and my teeth color did not deteriorate since my last visit. My teeth coloring was one major problem I have always had-extra work to whiten but made the dentist richer. Since beginning oil pulling, I only have to go every 6 months instead of 4 months. In the future I will probably go yearly instead now that my mouth is great. Since I will not have dental insurance for long, this little book has become a marvelous money saver too. I have always enjoyed history and Dr. Fife's clear writing of the connection between oral hygiene and the onset of many illnesses is illuminating, and just plain fun!
As an extra aside, I bit my tongue (ouch!!) which needed 2 stitches (ouch ouch!!). I Oil Pulled several times a day which soothed the injury. I do not know if my injured tongue healed more quickly with oil pulling but it is good as new.
I also oil pull with coconut oil for a few minutes only after having a good cigar. No matter how 'good' my cigars are, my mouth has a little tingle afterwards. The oil pull soothes my mouth.
UPDATE: 4/19/2011. I just came back from my dental exam. It turns out my gums have 'grown' back around 2 of my teeth. Once a year, my gums get measured for any gum receding(recession?). Most of my mouth has a 2 or 3 rating which is good. Apparently there were 2 spots though that had a 4 rating from last year. These spots all improved to a 3!!. I asked how that is possible and was informed that keeping the mouth extra clean along with flossing created the environment for my gums to thrive. To me, these numbers are evidence that oil pulling does the trick.

Reading this book has convinced me that Oil Pulling is a valid therapy to detox the body and especially if there are issues with the mouth, teeth and gums. I started doing this about a month ago and my arthritis pain is much, much less, my teeth are much whiter (mine have always been a yellow color which made me not want to smile much). I've noticed some changes in and around the stomach area and seem to be digesting foods much better. I've been using Sesame Seed oil which seems to work well. I do it when showering in the morning.

The best thing about the web sites are that no one is trying to sell you anything and it is very inexpensive considering what other supplements cost.

Dr. Fife recommends coconut oil (he wrote many books on coconut oil), others say any oil will do, and the original people recommended Sunflower or Sesame Seed oil, so take your pick. All I know is that I feel better and have much less joint aches and pains.

Who ever heard of such a thing? Let alone believe it works? My health food store recommended this process and they had just rec'd a shipment of the books. I bought the book and started oil pulling that day. Results were immediate! Incredible! Unbelievable! So Grateful to find something that works! I've had severe problems with dental/jawbone infection and oral pathogens due to root canals; toxicity issues due to crowns with heavy metals (I had tested at a metals laboratory), etc. I've struggled to heal after multiple jawbone surgeries; oil pulling is removing the bacteria and toxins from my system, allowing my body's energy resources to heal me instead of constantly fighting infection and toxins! I realize this sounds too good to be true, it isn't. I prefer to use only the healthy oils: coconut or olive oil. Multi-tasking makes the process go quickly. This is the least expensive therapy with the most significant results I've ever encountered. Try it, I think you'll be pleased.

I am a Dental Hygienist researching and writing a paper on oil pulling and found many studies to back its validity. Oil pulling is a tool to help remove bacteria from the oral cavity. Tooth brushing is also a tool that removes bacterial biofilm from the oral cavity. I believe that anything that is useful in removing bacterial biofilm should be welcomed positively by the dental community. Bacterial biofilm is the cause of so many negative dental conditions such as caries (cavities) and halitosis. The mouth is the window to your health and theoretically oil pulling could have positive effects to one's general health status. It's simple... Remove bacteria....Remove problems associated with bacteria. I've included links below to scientifically bound studies relating to the effectiveness of oil pulling:

Effect of oil pulling on Streptococcus mutans count in plaque and saliva using Dentocult SM Strip mutans test: a randomized, controlled, triple-blind study.
[...]

Effect of oil pulling on plaque induced gingivitis: a randomized, controlled, triple-blind study.
[...]

I have been oil pulling myself and have noticed positive improvements.
