Is It Okay That My Symptoms Worsened?

Posted by Lauren Fowler (Baltimore, U.S.A.) on 03/07/2007

I came across "Oil Pulling" I am always on the look out for natural cures. I found the idea of this very interesting. I read all of the testimonials and thought "why not" it can't hurt,and may help. I suffer from constant sinus infections and tooth pain. I take ACV, molasses flaxseed oil, bee pollen, honey from a local source every day. I also started "OP" about three weeks ago. As soon as I do (usually in the morning) I feel better. However, I noticed that my sinus symptoms were worse? I also feel pain on my right side that's most uncomfortable. Is it possible that my body is ridding itself of parasites? And in the process irritating although cleansing? I would appreciate any answers. I love this website I love to use nature to cure. We do have a very loving creator who put "Everything we need at our finger tips" Thanks Lauren

Dear Lauren: The sinus condition is a fungus problem and usually the pain is excess acid buildup. When metals are gotten rid of the parasites die off and release a toxins which in similar ways to a Herx effect. Toxins are generally acid, free radicals and the body can have a reaction.

To best neutralize this problem of Herx and neutralize the toxins are parasites are killed without getting the body's health to be of a problem, take 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water before the oil pulling. Take this about 3 times a day if possible. The dose at this level should be enough to reduce most of the toxins.

The second way thing that you might add to neutralize the toxin, at least taking them around 10.00 to 11.00 a.m. of 6 drops of 3% hydrogen peroxide in 1 glass of water. the peroxide is quite a good detoxifier of harmful toxins being release and should eliminate most of your problems.
