Questions to Get Started

Posted by Gilly on 03/27/2007

Hi, Just tread through the articles and they are great. I want to start oil pulling but have a few questions. 1) I currently take MSM powder will this be a problem? 2) I have eye problems, uveitis, blurred vision, will oil pulling help? 3) is it OK to use normal toothpaste after pulling? 4) I would like to get a more alkaline body, if I take 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda and citric acid in 1/2 cup of water will that help? Do I just drink it swallowing as normal and how many times a day would be best? Kind regards Gilly

Dear Gilly:

1) I currently take MSM powder will this be a problem?

It helps because MSM detoxifies also.

2) I have eye problems, uveitis, blurred vision, will oil pulling help?

If it is an autoimmune usually an Eye Wash solution sold in drug stores that contains borax or boric acid I found to be most helpful against uveitus. For some reason it was the fungus attached to the cell walls which bought the autoimmune. It is quite synergistic when a 5% magnesium chloride is added to a day by day eyewash use. Of course none of the eyewash solution make this, so I was force to make my own.

Blurred vision is usually helped most with drinking plenty of water, it seems blurred vision in a few cases is dehydration, and in another case it was the chromium deficiency. And still another, at least for me anyway, is a vitamin D, E, and A problem. I didn't take vitamin E for years and that lead me to the problem, but later I also found the condition to almost completely disappeared with D and E added. The vitamin I took was 20,000 i.u. only for a couple of days to notice improvement.

3) is it OK to use normal toothpaste after pulling?

Do normal toothpaste before oil pulling to reduce the bacteria colonies first, especially those giant food particles. Then after oil pulling just rinse with water. If you don't like the oily residue, than just brush it again. Brushing it again is the best method for oil pulling as it leaves no more oils left after the oil pulling.

4) I would like to get a more alkaline body, if I take 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda and citric acid in 1/2 cup of water will that help? Do I just drink it swallowing as normal and how many times a day would be best?

Yes, only twice a day is enough. Once in the morning and once before bedtime. If problems occur in late afternoon, one more dose during that time might help. However at this dose, it should be sufficient.
