Oil Pulling Therapy,
This review is from: Oil Pulling Therapy: Detoxifying and Healing the Body Through Oral Cleansing (Paperback)
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.

How do you swish coconut oil, mine is solid until heated.

I'm not the person who wrote this review, but I can answer your question because I've used coconut oil when it was solid (it liquefies at room temp in warmer weather). Just measure a TBS of the solid EVCO (extra virgin coconut oil), put it in your mouth, and in about 20 seconds or less, your body heat will liquefy it.

It becomes liquid at at 76 degrees.

I've been using that oil to cook my scrambled eggs in, in the morning....using only about a 1/4 tsp of the oil
I suppose trying the pull with that should be a breeze....
it's in my fridge, but as soon as I pop it in my mouth it will start to melt....I'm looking forward to this

I highly recommend EVCO. I used it years ago to loose 50 pounds in less than a year. I ate the oil by tablespoonfuls, put in my recipes, and even dapped it on my wart which removed it eventually (not sure if it was because I was taking it internally or dabbing it on each day, but it worked). I just came accross this book and never even thought of using it for my mouth. I just recently lost two teeth and found out I have the beginning stages of periodontal disease in my back teeth. So, I'm going to give this therapy a try. I was told that you don't need to refrigerate the oil. It stays fresh on the counter for years and liquifies at about 76 degrees. I'ts so versatile, you can use it in just about everything you eat, recipes, shakes, what-have-you. I think the EVCO gets a bad rap from the soy and corn industries because it's saturated fat, but it's from a vegatable, not animal, so it's natural and good for you. It has medium-chain tryclerides which help burn fat instead of store it. That's how I lost the weight. I also found it curing my sugar cravings and gives me more energy. Hope this helps someone.

It warms up and liquefies in your mouth.

coconuts are not vegetables
nor are they fruits

I'm just being a butthead here, but technically they're seeds.

Not to continue the (_|_)head footsteps
but aren't all nuts "technically" seeds...?
What is the difference between a nut and
a seed, if that isn't the case. At least you
are aware they're not fruits or vegetables
unlike the 2 ingrate (_|_)heads above ... !

L. Hopkins says:
It's always referred to as a nut when giving nut warnings. Coco-NUT
