I'm age 44, male, and had heart attack 3 mos. ago. I had 4 drug eluting stents put in and therefore have to be on plavix and aspirin for at least 1 year. I'm also on statin, doc said it's more for reduced inflammation than it is for cholesterol, I'm very thin and have low cholesterol. Tobacco and sugar were my only vices so one or both of them caused my heart attack.
I have been oil pulling with organic coconut oil for about 3 wks, somewhat half heartedly because I was very skeptical, but my mouth and teeth felt and looked better so I kept at it. All of a sudden the last 3 days I've felt really tired, weak and mild lightheadedness. So now I think this really works and I'm detoxing. I've also been getting rid of a lot of phlegm,(quit smoking the day of my heart attack).
Since I feel this is really working, does anyone have any thoughts, is this dangerous to do with meatal stents in my arteries and these meds in my system? I've been pulling every morning before food, 15-20 mins. could I maybe do it 3days/wk or even 1 day. I would appreciate any input, If I mention this to cardiologist he'll just think i'm crazy. He can't think outside of big pharma box.
