Why Did I Get a Bladder Infection?
Ted, I started oil pulling about a month ago and now have a severe bladder infection. I pulled w/coconut oil for a while until I could find some sesame seed oil unrefined and toasted. I have not had a bladder infection in over 25 years. I am also using ACV and baking soda a couple of times a day. I did this to cut the acidity in the urine which it did. I did visit my doctor, who is aware of a lot of remedies that work and doesn't just prescribe meds, he agreed the ACV would help and I chose to take sulphamethoxazole/trimethoprim tablets and finally after four days I feel like a human again. I take no other meds, haven't even been to a doctor in over 4 years, slight cold once last year. I have lots of energy so I was surprised when this came on so fast, at least I didn't have any really early signs. Do you think the oil pulling results were the detoxification and it went through the kidneys and bladder? I love the feeling of my mouth after oil pulling and the taste is okay, the coconut oil is worse as it solidifies, but it melts quickly in the mouth. Thanks for the response. Jeannette
