I think oil pulling removing toxins has to do with people who have root canals that are infected.
In my mind I brush them without toothpaste every day. In reality I forget the brushing and then bash them into the pavement.
In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

Currently trying to figure out WTF to eat (for IBS-C).
i have been swishing w/ sesame oil (coconut oil just seemed too repulsive) for 4 months, daily for 20 minutes each AM. Just went yesterday for my 4 month checkup - i have to go that regularly for cleaning b/c i have incredibly fast buildup of tartar. I didn't tell the cleaner that i'd be doing anything different. I brush w/ a regular toothbrush & tom's toothpaste & floss daily, in addition to the swishing.
unfortunately, the tartar buildup was just about the same BUT she did remark that my gums were VERY healthy, which had been another problem in the past. And she noted that there was a lot less buildup in particular areas. So, i do think that the daily swishing w/ the oil is doing something. Maybe i'll have a better report in 4mos. This tartar buildup drives me nuts!
