the colour is not white after doing it for 10 mins , it is a light yellow colour, but i feel that i dont crave for food and also i feel much more active , As i am a bit overweight i am trying all sorts of things to loose weight, since i had heard about this, i have now taken it up seriously. i am also taking ACV in the morning. Has anyone done pranayama(yoga) the breathing exercise , that helps with a lot of diseases as well, any suggestions regarding the oil therapy would be apprecited please.

It's possible that your salivary glands are not working properly, possibly because you are dehydrated. To resolve this issue, drink one glass of water first, wait 15-30 minutes, then do the oil pulling. Long term oil pulling will activate salivary glands, remove heavy metals, for example. So the fact that you are a bit overweight might be that the digestive juices are not functioning from either dehydration or lack of stimulation. Perhaps eating some sugarless xylitol gum might help further and next time with drinking of water in the morning your dehydration problem will be gone and the solution from mouth swishing will be white.
