but has any one heard of this?? i am a sceptic but thougt i would ask

Julien

I have heard of oil pulling but not specifically for MS. This was for re-mineralising teeth and making teeth whiter with oil pulling by using coconut oil. I did try doing I a couple of times but the yuck factor put me off. Have you tried it yet? Tracy

l had never heard of ‘oil pulling’ - but have just started using coconut oil for its health benefits - and great taste. So l am intrigued to try it. Especially, as it is supposed to be a good detox - and will help with heavy metal toxins. l will give it a go! -

Always willing to try any complimentary remedies/treatments. What have we got to lose?

Thanks for this.

Juliien, ta,

l bought my coconut oil via amazon. lts Virgin Coconut - not refined or processed. lts actually a thick white firm cream. lts cholesterol and sugar free. Can be used for frying/baking/ add to coffee and smoothies. Also as a body lotion and hair conditioner.

So top to toe and all stops in between!

My mother was a ‘dog groomer’ and also showed her Corgis and Rottweilers - and she used coconut oil - just a tiny bit to add a nice shine to their coats. That was 60 yrs ago - so its nothing new.

Whats new to me is this way of applying it to your teeth and leaving it there for 15 mins then spitting it out. Not just for teeth whitening but to rid the gums and mouth of toxins and prevention of gum disease.

Think l will stick to using it in my stir-fries/asian cookery.

lts certainly an all purpose oil. And a little goes a long way.

Just to be a party pooper…

Apart from when it does you real harm, that is. Evening Primrose Oil anyone? St John’s Wort? Good for provoking a seizure if you’ve got epilepsy in both cases. Even drinking grapefruit juice isn’t always harmless thanks to intereactions! And they’re just three I can think of

I have epilepsy so having a seiuzre and losing my driving license again is a massive thing to lose!
