I developed an intense sinus head ache pain from a prolonged sinus infection. It had been going on for a year or more. My doctor put me on antibiotics, and they helped for a couple of weeks. But the sinus came back worse soon after the course finished. Decongestants were even less effective. I tried apple cider vinegar and it gave instant relief, but the symptoms returned within an hour or two. I wanted a real cure. When I first read about Oil Pulling, my reaction was â€œthis is dumbâ€. But it sounded really easy so I thought I'd see what happens. After my first day of OP I blew out loads of "stuff" from my nose and I could breathe more freely. I had a good sleep that night, and the next morning I felt significantly better. Two days later I had no pressure in my head and the pain had virtually gone. This was the cure I had been looking for! Now weeks later, in addition to my Sinus relief my teeth are whiter, my hair is shinier, my skin feels a little smoother, and my digestion is better. I don't see any reason to stop OP. I will do it for the rest of my life.

I have already commented on oil pulling as a remedy for abcesses. I have also noticed the ongoing sinus infections I used to suffer from have almost disappeared. I do believe the oil pulling has assisted with this, and I also recently stopped eating all grains which I think has contributed to the significant reduction in sinus congestion.

I have been oil pulling for 7 weeks and just LOVE IT!!! My sinuses have never been clearer. No more headaches. My teeth feel wonderful and are whiter. I am sleeping better than ever (even with hot flashes)!!!! The brown spots on my hands and arms are fading. My skin is clearer and not more blackheads around my nose. I have more energy than ever before. I will continue this forever. I use organic unrefined coconut oil and might try sesame soon. The only side effects I had was feeling flu like symptoms the first few days and my nose nose ran constantly but now I feel GREAT!
