Hello, I used to oil pull for about a year with mostly Safflower or Sunflower oil. I had very bad sinus's and it helped a lot with that. But then i had sinus surgery and cut gluten out of my diet and my sinus's weren't a problem anymore. So out of sheer laziness I stopped.
But recently i've been thinking about trying to get pregnant before it's too late (if it isn't already). I am 42 and just had bloodwork done. My hormones did not look good for pregnancy, but not impossible.
I had always gotten my period very regularly but the minute i start thinking about getting pregnant, my period stopped.
My doctor did an ultrasound and said "well i don't know what's going on, your egg is there ready to ovulate but it's just not happening"
I had an appointment yesterday with an acupuncturist and she suggested very costly twice a week sessions, along with very costly chinese herbs.
The day before i had decided to start oil pulling again just for overall health benefits. I only oil pulled twice so far and bang! my period comes. Not sure if this had to do with the oil pulling, but if so then great! Does anyone know if Oil Pulling can help at all with balancing hormones? I've just started taking some supplements the doctor suggested and drinking a tea for balancing hormones. (i had been drinking this tea for over 2 weeks in hopes that it'd bring on my period, but no luck).
BTW it's only a couple days in, but I already feel better! Can't believe I ever stopped! I haven't gotten any detox symptoms yet but i'm prepared!
