Oil what? Oil pulling? Maybe helpful with Endo?
I just read a blog on oil pulling. I don't know how I got to that particular page...one led to another led to another led to Ashley Green's blog on oil pulling. I had no idea what it was...and I was intrigued...so I read it. Now, Ashley spells it all out, so I won't try to duplicate her post on this topic. In a nutshell, you swoosh oil (vegetable based) around in your mouth for 20 mins just like you would mouthwash (except longer) and the purpose of this is to pull toxins from your body. After going to a couple of different sites on this I understand that organic is likely best, and coconut, sunflower and sesame are good. Ashley's site lists a dozen or so ailments that oil pulling can aid with. While endometriosis is not in this list, I wondered what oil pulling can do to help with endometriosis.
