    Does anyone do this?
    I adhered to the oil pulling program some years ago. It probably lasted all of a couple of weeks. Yes, CO is a good oil to use. The things it supposedly does for the body (per the group I was involved with) . . . cure-all. I doubt it. Then again, did not adhere to the program long enough for change undoubtedly.

    From various sources I have read: EVERYTHING.

    I have personal friends who swear by it, they've done it for over a year. Some have auto-immune illnesses and say that it has helped some. Most claim that it has lightened their teeth.

    Haven't tried it caused the thickening oil idea makes me want to hurl...

    The news segment I watched showed a girl who scooped a spoonful out of a jar and putting it in her mouth. It looked liked a big glop of Crisco! YUCK! The reporter said people mostly use coconut oil because of the taste. I bet it taste better than Vicks Vapor Rub. I know some oldtimers that would actually swallow that stuff. My dad used to drink vinegar every day.

    More power to ones that could do it. I don't think it's for me.

    I wonder about the strangest things! LOL

    Amazing, if you listen to any of the 'drug' ads on TV, the side-effects far outnumber the positive benefits. I think this would do no more than grease my innards.

    Checked with my daughter, who has fallen for the coconut oil and she tells me that Amanda (Ezra's Mom) has been doing this for weeks. Excuse me, no wonder she's looked a bit peaked.
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    Okay, keep it in your mouth for 15 to 20 minutes and don't swallow any of it. Yeah, right. Talk about oily discharge ...

    Didn't someone post awhile ago about a family member whose lungs were coated with oil? Think the person was spraying it in their nose.
