Sounds like something you might have to service on your car. I was curious when I saw a post about this on one of my favorite podcasters so I bit... or more like swished. Oil pulling is using a tablespoon of an oil like Coconut (my personal favorite), Sesame or Safflower, swishing it in your mouth first thing in the morning for 20 minutes then spitting it out. This apparently clears toxins from your body via the mouth.
This is a 1000 year old Ayurvedic practice that came to the US in the 1990's. Of course there are very few studies to back up these claims. No money to be made in a study on a pennies a day practice that could improve oral health along with anecdotal improvements on skin conditions, arthritis, asthma, headaches, hormone imbalances, infections, liver problems and more.
How does this work? It follows the idea that like treats like. Last year I was using an oil based paint when the can dropped and I caught it... all over my hands and arm. I was scrubbing scrubbing scrubbing trying to remove the paint when my friend handed me a bottle of baby oil and said "here, try this." Within moments the oil based paints lifted off and washed away. I was amazed. The baby oil was able to get under the oil paint effortlessly and left my skin super soft and smooth.
Now apply this same idea to toxins in your mouth. The practice is to use oil to swish first thing in the morning. When you wake up how does your mouth feel? Not so great right? Morning breath is your body naturally pulling toxins to your mouth to get rid of them. The oil being swished will get in up under the gum line and 'lift' the toxins out. I have been pulling now for about 3 months. My teeth are whiter and I am noticing less plaque when I clean my teeth. (Full disclosure, I have a dental kit I bought on Amazon for $10 and clean my teeth with dental tools in addition to brushing/flossing.) Spots on my teeth that I could not get out, after about 2 months disappeared.
How to pull:
Use up to a tablespoon of good quality organic coconut, sesame or safflower oil. I prefer coconut oil for taste and the fact it is naturally healing and not a seed oil. You may need to start out with a teaspoon and over time work up to a tablespoon. Its a lot of oil especially your first time. You ideally want to swish this around your mouth for 20 minutes. You may need to work up to tolerate this. On all sites I investigated, 20 minutes is the magic number as it is long enough to give the oil a chance to work under the toxins and bind. Don't go longer than 20 minutes as the body will start to reabsorb the toxins. So swish for 20 minutes then spit in the trash (it's oil... don't clog up your drain!). You will have quite a mouthful as the oil mixes with your saliva. I then rinse with a hydrogen peroxide (roughly 0.5% so very diluted) and distilled water mix. My mom failed to do this one day and was quite ill for several hours. Made a believer out of her!
"20 minutes!?!" Yes, it sounds like a long time to be standing there swishing. I have gotten in the habit of starting my day right off the bat with pulling. I keep a jar of coconut oil in the bathroom taking a tablespoon first thing then swish making the bed, swish making my coffee, swish checking my email or texts, swish unloading the dishwasher, etc. Twenty minutes goes by quick! Spit , Rinse, Coffee. It was actually one of the easier routines I was able to incorporate. And honestly, my coffee tastes amazing after a good pull!
I was on my way to the Richmond Folk Festival when I checked in with my mom to see how my parents were holding up. My dad was diagnosed with "C0v!d " a week before and he had decided to go ahead with the antibody infusion, which he was at the end of the window of time to be able to receive. Up to then he was tired (ok exhausted) and had a cough but was holding steady pretty well.
Calling my mom that morning, I got a hysterical woman I hardly recognized. My mom is the most calm, cool and pragmatic person I know. She was seriously stressing about getting my dad to the appointment. Realizing she was at her rope's end, I unpacked my truck, threw the dog in the back and headed North to Pa rather than south to Va.
When I arrived, my parents were still at the appointment for the infusion. My mom had calmed down at this point and was back to being the rock of Gibraltar. When my dad returned home, he looked tired, very weak and frail. Not his typical booming voice and 6 foot strong frame I was was used too. My mom looked exhausted and had a telltale dry cough. Having had "C0v!d" myself in January and getting my boyfriend through it a month later, and the fact that I am now fully Potentiated, I was not worried about getting sick.
My dad's first complaint was that he was freezing. He felt like a block of ice. When I took his temperature, it was registering 95.8. Whaat? That can't be... then.... he started shivering so hard (rigors). His feet were blocks of ice and his skin was pale and not cool to touch but COLD. He told me how cold it was in the infusion center and that he was freezing during the infusion. They didn't have blankets so they gave him a sheet. I have taken care of patients with hypothermia and this looked like that. We used wet hand towels heated in the microwave around his feet and neck being careful not to burn him. I called the infusion center, who were most unhelpful, and the new infusionist told me she had thawed the fluids out when I asked her if they warm the fluids prior to administering. Chances are, my father was infused with a solution that was a few degrees above frozen.
A weakened 76 year old with preconditions and exhausted from fighting off an infection for over a week would have a difficult time dealing with fluids this cold, most likely contributing to his body temp of 95.8. After about 40 minutes of heating towels and trying to warm him up, he stopped shivering and calmed down, we started to peel the blankets off. Just as I thought would happen, he started to have a paradoxical reaction,,, his body started to kick in trying to warm him up and in short order he had a temperature of 102.5. Eh gads.... my dad has a history of emphysema so the respiratory and infection factor was of high concern... For the next 36 hours we battled back and forth a fever and moderate respiratory distress. I use the word severe carefully, but we were close to that.
After dealing with my boyfriends battle in February, I encouraged my parents to contact Frontline Doctors and start the prophylactic protocol. This may have been a major factor in their recovery. They have been taking the supplements Vit. C, Vit. D, Zinc, Magnesium and HCQ. We continued with this but increased the HCQ to daily instead of weekly. For my dad, during his nearly severe respiratory distress, I set up a humidifier next to the bed infusing distilled water with food grade peroxide, trying to hyper oxygenate the room and therefore him. Peppermint oil was also heavily used. When he complained of a shortness of breath flare, I rolled him on his side and did chest percussions (click here for tutorial), and finished up with massage of long strokes stretching him out and getting the blood flow towards his heart.
As my dad's status started to improve, my mom's started to deteriorate. Her dry cough was turning into something more and the adrenaline of dealing with my dad was wearing off and she was crashing. About this time my nebulizer arrived so the humidifier went over to where my mom was sleeping with peroxide infusing throughout the night and mild peroxide nebulizer treatments. About this time it hit me to start them on NAC which I saw a huge change in their condition for the better. Mind you, they themselves were still miserable with exhaustion. But I could deal with that.
A week later, both are on the mend, up moving around and slowly getting back to normal albeit with many naps throughout the day. My dad struggles the most, but with a history of emphysema and ulcerative colitis (largely gone since I put him on food grade hydrogen peroxide - see earlier post), he is doing great! My mom, who is rarely sick and has the fortitude of a stubborn ox, was terrified of progressing to a worsening stage. The hardest thing taking care of her was keeping her terror at bay. No need to manifest that!
The regimen that worked for us... the Zelenko Protocol
Ivermectin (yes, I gave them the horse paste and with great results. That's when dad seemed to really turn the corner)(for a natural substitute Wormwood, which I had to switch my dad to as he objected to the horse medicine )
NAC (WOW! Game changer! and thanks to the government more difficult to buy)
Other things I could've added on but didn't have on hand or didn't think of it till later would include Quercetin (I left mine at home)
I also had a dose of Zithromax on hand just in case, but never needed this.
Everything except for the HCQ and Zithromax is (or was when I bought it, now, maybe not so easy) over the counter. There are home made versions of HCQ. I take Secrets of the Tribe quinine daily myself. You can also use orange and grapefruit skins.
I also followed Dr. Mercola and carefully gave my mom hydrogen peroxide nebulizer treatments (heavily diluted food grade peroxide. She could only tolerate less than a 0.5% solution. Also the home remedies worked as well. Hot water with lemon, honey and peppermint always my favorite and a new one I came across on IG.... a home made cough medicine made by cutting up an onion and covering it with sugar. This makes a syrup that within minutes cut my mom's cough. Crazy! A wonderful "Super Tonic" I got at a local farm store with horseradish, garlic, onions, red peppers, fresh ginger root and apple cider vinegar. Worked wonders as a decongestant!
Fortunately, as they got over the hump, the weather broke from dreary rain to sunny warm days. I wrapped them up in blankets and set them on the deck in the sun under a tree with a beautiful view of the valley, a tall glass of lemon and salt water and a box of tissues. Fresh air and sun! Just like the doctor would have ordered in the old days!
One last thing I did do which was a wee bit unorthodox was a blood thinner. We didn't have aspirin on hand so I had them do 3 drops of their urine under the tongue. Urokinase, a very potent clot buster drug we use in the ER for heart attacks and strokes is derived from... urine. Amazingly, our bodies produce the very medicine we need and if they had clots, I knew their bodies would produce the life saving treatment they needed. Better safe (and maybe a wee bit grossed out) then with clots and a pulmonary embolism. I put this at the very end as only the fully initiated would read this far.

As disgusting as this sounds, it is actually quite beautiful when you think of it.
As my mom started to feel better and the fear the media so entrenched in her psyche that with every cough she would devolve and become the next victim faded, her anger at the system rose. Earlier, my parents were told by the doctor to go home, they weren't sick enough. If it got worse then they were to go to the hospital. They weren't told to take the vitamins or the zinc and their doctor frowned upon the fact they were on HCQ. If it wasn't for me forcing the education onto them and then dragging them through the treatments, my sister (also a nurse) is quite sure we'd be saying our goodbyes through a window with them alone to die. I can barely contain my anger when I think of the "protocol" that so many were tortured with.
My heartfelt condolences to all who have lost a loved one to this very treatable and mostly nonlethal condition. Please, turn off your tv and start to research on your own. This, much like other diseases, do not have to be the life threatening, terrifying end of life we have been lead to believe.
p.s. two weeks post and me healthy as a horse... natural antibodies rock! Talking with my dad, he thinks he started to get sick when he was hugged by someone who recently had had the v@ccine. Shedding is real. But timing was perfect - I was available to help, the weather was perfect for convalescing in the sun, and natural antibodies for my parents will hopefully carry them through winter.
I'm not even 100% sure how I fell into this little gem of a treatment. Like most, I'm quite familiar with the brown bottle of Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) and have used it in my nursing career especially when I worked at ShockTrauma. We used it to clean twice daily sutured wounds. Plastic surgery especially liked this for cleaning delicate facial lacerations and scrapes. We would use a diluted mix of 1 part H2O2 and 1 part sterile saline.
So when I read Madison Cavanaugh's One Minute Cure I was intrigued. Chatting about this with a friend who was using holistic healing herself, I learned she was driving 2 hours to a natural dentist where she had IV infusions of H2O2 prior to dental treatments. Upon hearing this, my anxiety about drinking peroxide eased somewhat. I ordered up a bottle of FOOD GRADE (very important!!!!) 35% Hydrogen Peroxide. The warnings that came with it were immense and terrifying. I was half afraid to bring the bottle into the house. Seriously. The anxiety was ridiculous. I had a bottle of bleach sitting out like it was nothing and here I was clenching about peroxide.
I reread Madison's book, researched further her resources and seeing as I don't want to recommend something I myself have not tried, I swallowed my fear (kind of literally here!). I brought in the bottle sitting outside on the back porch and took my first dose. Now let me stop here and just reiterate, this is NOT the hydrogen peroxide you buy over the counter at the drugstore. The over the counter stuff WOULD be poison as it has things in it other than H2O2 called stabilizers. These are very toxic and probably would do immense damage if ingested. So very important to buy FOOD GRADE. From a year ago (August of 2020) there are so many more websites that are talking about this and offering the appropriate formula. I will leave it to you to use the Google machine and find your own source. My source was industrial grade and scared the crap out of me with the ominous warnings of explosions, poisoning and imminent death. Now, there are many natural remedy sites that offer a friendlier packaging that is remarkably less terrifying.
Swallowing my first dose I was like, wow... what was I soooo afraid of??? Once again, more so out of curiosity, I did the whole protocol that lasted 2 months. I worked up to 25 drops in distilled water (always distilled from my fabulous home distiller!) and back down again. Admittedly, 25 drops was tough. It was very "bleachy." I used some drops in my bedside humidifier during the winter and even started to use the H2O2 for cleaning instead of harmful bleach. I have on occasion gotten the full 35% on my fingers and yes,,,, not recommended. My skin turned white and TINGLED. My nail beds burned as if I rubbed a freshly cut super hot chili pepper into the skin.... ouch!!! but I rinsed with water and after a bit it went away. I survived my treatment with no ill effects. Did I feel different? hard to say. I wasn't sick to start with. But I did have more energy than ever!
I cautiously mentioned this to my dad. My dad is 75 years old and has suffered for 10 years now from ulcerative colitis. Exhausted and frustrated each morning afraid to leave the house as there were often 5-8 trips to the bathroom before 10 am, and on a good day may have been 3-4 trips. But each day had left him more raw on his backside and feeling less and less himself. Ten years of this will take its toll. So when I mentioned peroxide might help him he was willing to try it. I warned him it wouldn't happen overnight and to not get his hopes up afraid he would quit before allowing it to work. He took his first dose of 3 drops in a glass of distilled water. I did a sign of the cross despite not being Catholic and prayed that it would work. To my utter amazement, and his, within 10 minutes he went to his morning constitution and passed the first solid stool he had for 10 years. And he did it only once that entire day. And the next and the next. Prayers answered!
He has been completely loyal in his dedication to taking "his drops" 3X's daily. He was able to scale up to 10 drops a day and couldn't go further. I told him to do what he could tolerate. Not to push himself. Since that fateful day in February 2021, he has had one SOLID movement a day, on a rare occasion two. To give a testimonial about the importance of using distilled water, one day he accidentally used tap water. The result was immediate with cramping and loose stools. My dad who was a skeptic at first was now convinced beyond any shadow of a doubt. When his doctor showed him photos of how he was destroying his esophagus and he would destroy his intestines, he looked at her and said, "I've been with you for 10 years taking pills that cost $100+ a month. My daughter cured me in one dose for less than $0.10. I'll stick with this." It amazes me how quick allopathic medicine is so quick to denounce what they don't understand and not even be curious to investigate real live examples rather than the fear mongering found in bought and paid for medical journals. He still needs the meds (for now) but is slowly trying to ween himself off. Oh, and on his next visit to the same doctor she told him he no longer needed to take the meds for his pre-diabetic condition. His lab tests were all normal. After years of being on this medication, one would think she would be curious as to how that happened. One would be wrong. Yes, peroxide is reported to "cure" diabetes as well.
There are hundreds of testimonials online about this. Way more than when I started to investigate this a year ago. A year ago there was more fear mongering that you were drinking "bleach" and would kill yourself. As I always say, do your own research. If you are unsure or uneasy, find a homeopathic practitioner you trust. Wellness does not have to be expensive or scary.
