Reviewed first on my blog: http://www.fragrantuniverse.com/oil-p...

I’ve read tons of health benefits of doing oil pulling, not only for teeth and oral health, but also for the health of the entire body. However it is one thing to read what other bloggers say (like me), and quite another to read a book written by a professional on the topic.

In fact this book has been recommended a lot on the oil pulling Curezone forum so I decided to pick it up and read it. I’ve already talked briefly about this...more

Here is a safe and very easy way to vastly improve your health without special pills or diets. All it requires is swishing a spoonful of vegetable oil around your mouth for at least 15 minutes at a time.

Many scientific studies have chronicled a link between chronic illness and the health of our mouths (the book references over 150 such studies). Think about it; our mouths are constantly warm and moist, like a tropical rain forest, which is a great breeding ground for germs. They are also open to...more

A friend told me about oil pulling about 5 months ago and I didn't pay much attention. So when I saw this book I knew I was missing out on something. I know Bruce Fife and have enjoyed a few of his other books. I believe he has a pretty solid foundation in nutrition. I skimmed over a chunk of this book (regarding specific health conditions mostly), but the main parts I did read were fascinating (e.g. when diseased teeth from humans were placed in animals, the animal contracted the same physical...more

If you can get past the blatant typos and misuse of some scientific terms (in an attempt to make the material more approachable I assume), the overall message of this book is good and easy to follow. I started the process of oil pulling before having read this book (or any book on the subject) and it was good to see some of the evidence to back up this therapy. Would recommend with the caveat: this text definitely needs some editing.

Very interesting. I started Oil Pulling and have done it for about 1 week. I noticed so far that my teeth are whiter and my breath is much fresher. I add a drop of clove or wintergreen essential oil while I am pulling. Also, I noticed that it is easier to floss my teeth. The floss glides between my teeth now. I am hoping to see a inprovement in my digestive system and other health issues. The books says it could take at least 45 days. The process sounded kind of gross but I found it to be easier...more

Interesting. Going to give it a try and see what results occur.

Thus is the third book I have read by Bruce Fife. It is an easy read filled with a lot of good information. I have oil pulled off and on (only because when I start oil pulling it never fails that my kids want to ask me questions that must be answered. ) the results are amazing. I really believe that this is a tool to use for over all good health. It is natural and doesn't conflict with medications. In a time that we are bombarded with processed foods, toxins in the environment and in our homes w...more

I rated this one a three because I'm not sure this works for people who regularly floss and brush already. It probably would work well for people with advanced dental problems, but then any cleaning would be great! It also seems like an entire book wouldn't be needed to describe this process, which is basically "swish vegetable oil in your mouth for ten to 15 minutes per day". If you need to be convinced of the benefits or are just curious, it's still worth a read.

This was a fantastic book on oral health and detoxification. The author debunks many myths that have been floating around on the Internet about oil pulling. If you ever wanted to learn more, I highly recommend reading this book rather than any article online.

Hmmmmm. I'm not sure what I think. I think I'll give it a try. If it works, I'll give it more stars. If it doesn't... My father-in-law is really into alternative medicine, so he introduces us all kinds of stuff. We;ll see what happens.
Lisa Newcomb
Another book I would recommend to anyone interested in health and healing. I'll be sending this as a Christmas gift to at least one person, along with some organic coconut oil, of course!
David
Very helpful. Eye opening. Well-organized and written.

Recommend to anyone interested in oral hygiene and dental care that results in other health benefits.

pulled me to practice oil pulling and it is a miraculous healing process.never had a cough last for more than a day.excellent health practice.
Smpaetz
Interesting theory. Makes sense. Sounds to simple to really work but I will give it a try.

Post scrip: Still oil pulling and enjoying it.
Cindy Kennedy
Very informative book about how our teeth affect our health. I try to oil pull each day with coconut oil. I have seen some improvements in my teeth.
Helen
another great book. Some overlapping of information between all of his books but very interesting.
Martha Grace
I've added this health tool to my daily toolbox -- I am oil swishing every morning.
Jeannie Romanello
Presently practicing daily and enjoying the results!
