Will I Lose My Fillings?

Posted by Mary (Antioch, IL) on 01/03/2007

In a response by the moderator (?) I read.. "And no oil pulling is perfect, I noted that some people DO report amalgrams fillings removed after doing oil pulling, which is good and bad. Good in that you can now use ceramic fillings and plastic to cover instead of heavy metals, bad in that you going to spend some money to do the dental filings again." I'm a bit confused and would like clarification. Are you stating that some people reported amalgum fillings coming lose from doing the "oil pulling" or the people decided to have their amalgum fillings removed and replaced w/another material? I want to tryoil pulling but cannot risk, at this point, fillings beginning to come lose. Please advise as I want to begin oil pulling. Thanks so much. Mary in Antioch

Oil pulling removes heavy metals from your body, including the heavy metal filings with exception of ceramic fillings. All this is just my experience. You have to decide yourself to do oil pulling or not. If you don't want to rid of fillings and hence heavy metals, then oil pulling should not be done. A preferred remedy that has less negative effect then oil pulling is a simple mouth detox, which is simply saturated solution baking soda and one drop peppermint mouthwash. This one will have the least problems in that it doesn't remove the fillings, but seems to be protective of enamel degradation.
